    We were going to the theater, so were on a tight timeline. The restaurant is very cute and everyone there very nice and very accommodating given our schedule. We also were going to split everything, and they graciously split all items for us. Food was excellent; had lobster bisque special and onion tart for appetizers and the swordfish special for our entree. Would highly recommend!

    Had brunch with friends and ordered the duck confit. It was clearly reheated from the night before and was overcooked and dry, to the point of tough around the legs. A real disappointment, and it was half again the price of the egg dishes. I didn’t make a fuss (it was a birthday brunch) but had been looking forward to a properly cooked confit. Disappointing from a restaurant of that caliber.

    Pigs feet not like Grandma used to make--a very good thing! Crispy exterior and melting, soft interior. Veal cheeks unctuous, hearty. Trout almandine, a classic. Duck with peach instead of orange--tasty treat. Profiteroles with hazelnut ice cream very mildly flavored--more hazelnut, please! Jazzy chanteuse recording added to the pleasure of the evening.

    Service horrendous! Took forever to get the wait staff’s attention and the dining room was empty, everyone had already left. They made a huge mistake on the bill that I thankfully caught, charged me for 3 bottles of wine instead of 1 bottle and 2 glasses, a $140 mistake. They tried to serve the entrees before the plates from the starters were removed-it was a disaster and it took forever for them to clear the plates and offer desert. Others mentioned that the space is very tight and its the truth, 4 of us sat in s tiny corner at a tiny table that could barely fit our wine glasses, bread plates and 3 starters. Food was delish but all the inconveniences experienced doesn’t make it worth it - will definitely not be going back there

    The food was delicious. I have yet to find Trout Meunière in DC that is better than that offered by Bistrot Lepic. My husband loved his calamari appetizer and his duck breast meal, which he said was cooked to perfection. In addition, the bread and even the butter are amazing here--it's hard not to fill up on the bread basket. I also love the wines offered. This is one of our favorite places in DC!

    Sat outside, which was pleasant but so noisy. Not in the restaurant’s control, of course, and we were offered our choice of locations. Just know if you choose the streetery it will be really loud from trucks idling and so forth.

    From the cheese plate to the grilled halibut and beef medallions, every bite was delicious. But do take your waiter’s suggestion and have warm chocolate tart with vanilla ice cream for dessert: It is the perfect ending.

    My husband and I both ordered the Tournedous au poivre. I asked for between medium and medium well, specifying pink but not bloody. Instead, the steak was quite well done, which destroyed flavor and juiciness. I suspect that it had been reheated after the server removed it from the table when the kitchen took it back after mistakenly serving me the wrong dish. This was only our second visit, and mistakes happen! Everything else is so great that I’ll try again before giving up!

    I had endive salad with apple, walnuts and Roquefort cheese. There was one walnut and one piece of apple. I had a special tomato tart with goat cheese. This was basically tomato soup in a pastry shell with a dollop of goat cheese. Very disappointing food.

    The meal was overall good and well prepared. We ordered the assorted Cheese appetizer and it consisted of three very small tastes of cheese. The slate plate was not labeled and the waiter did not explain. The cost value here was poor. As our main dishes we had the Tournedos, the Duck a confit and the Foie de Veau Provencale. We shared a nice bottle of Gigondas and a Gateau Basque. The dessert was a letdown, the overwhelming taste being just sweet and the texture of the pastry itself was not great. The ambiance was unfortunately staid. Older clientele, loud space, honestly not a place I will be returning to.

    My party of six sat alfresco on Wisconsin Avenue under a canopy. It was surprisingly not too noisy. The menu offered a good choice of in season dishes. Five of us ordered the trout and it was perfectly prepared and came for all at the same time. Wine list good and reasonable. Meal price reasonable. Overall a very satisfying evening at Bistrot Lepic!

    My food was sent back because I asked for my beef medallions to be on the well done side. It was rare and then medium rare when I got it back the second time! This is the first time this has happened but it also happened to the people at the table in front of us! We still love this place, one of our favorites! Bad night for the chef!

    Great little French bistro in upper Georgetown. Street parking easy nearby with 2-hour limit without zone 2 sticker. Great food and great service at a reasonable price. Went during Restaurant Week so the prices were lower than the usual price. Jazz night on Wednesdays like a French cabaret.

    My friend & I went to Bistrot Lepic for restaurant week, & it was definitely a very good choice. The food was excellent, service very good, & ambiance quite nice. It is a small place, & has nice touches like wall art to help you imagine you are France. The menu choices were good. I hadn't been to Bistrot Lepic for many years, & so glad it is still there turning out such good food.

    It's my neighborhood go to for an improptu lunch with my spouse or early Sunday dinner with another couple. The restaurant serves a classic Bistro menu. Food is very well prepared. I've had the trout, salmon and chicken so far. The fries are very good. I like the Bistro Lepic salad. The lettuces are very fresh and the dressing is light. Last night I passed on a duck breast special and I hope it will be offered again. A seasonal peach tart brought a very good meal to a close.

    I've enjoyed Lepic for many years but my last two visits have been disappointing. The food is way over salted. The almond and caper sauce for my soft shell crab was much too rich for the delicate crab and heavily salted.

    I try to dine at Bistro Lepic at least once a month. Food is exceptional, daily specials are always creative and prepared to perfection. Yes, they make a great martini and the wine list will compliment any budget. The best escargot in DC. Service is timely but not intrusive during a meal.
