Wonderful dining experience once again. Bistro Lepic is our favorite restaurant in DC. During the covid crisis we dine outdoors on their lovely little terrace in front of the restaurant. Very welcoming and romantic place with delicious food and extremely friendly service.
Thank you, Team Lepic!

We love Bistrot Lepic and it never fails to impress. Relaxed, friendly and delicious classics. I put moderate for noisy because we were seated outside which we loved and got to feel the street scene.

We dined outside because of Covid. The staff could not have been more attentive - bringing g us heat lamps and propane heaters immediately. Our waitress never made us wait and was fully helpful about the menu and wines. I had the quail - which was fantastic. My wife had the halibut - excellent seasoning and very fresh. We quickly forgot we were on Wisconsin Ave and had a delightful Valentine’s Day. Feast. We will be back. Inside was very busy and lively.

Bistrot Lepic is NEVER disappointing. The menu is superb and the service is top-of-the-line. Mixed drinks are handcrafted to perfection. Escargot is the best in DC. Salads were crisp with a fantastic house dressing. Entrees, hers the calf liver and mine the cassoulet...seasoned to perfection and cooked and served at the right temperature. Wine list is adventurous and will not break the bank. We shall return!

We had a lovely time celebrating our daughter's 19th birthday on January Saturday 9th.
It had to be an outdoor dinner because of the pandemic but with a good coat on and their warmers we weren't cold and we really enjoyed the whole experience!
We loved the pan seared foie gras with a Port reduction, it was perfectly made!
Duck Cassoulet was formidable, so was the rainbow trout, and confit de canard!
Very happy! We will go back!

Considering we were seated outside during the winter due to bureaucratic mandate (thanks, global pandemic) the experience was absolutely outstanding. The staff did an excellent job and maintained a high standard, despite the imposed hardships. And everything was delicious, as always!

Not the first visit to Bistro Lepic and it certainly will not be my last!
Food and service are fantastic. One of the few places that makes unquestionably the best, dry Grey Goose martini.
She had the escargot appetizer and the calf liver entre. I had the French onion soup and the cassoulet. We shared a half bottle of Chateauneuf du pape wine...spectacular and espresso to top it all off.

We’ve been here a few time and it never disappoints if you are looking for classic French cuisine, look no further. Also, we need to look for places who offer a gluten free menu because of an allergy and not only is their menu very gluten free friendly, but the staff was very knowledgeable. Can’t wait to go back.

The service and food were outstanding! My husband and I asked the waitress for her recommendations and they were on point! We had the squash soup, filet entree, and the meringue dessert.

We sat outside in their seating area and had a great night! This is one of our favorite places to eat! 😀

My wife and I went out to dinner for the first time (without kids) since we arrived back in the US approx 8 months ago. I came across this restaurant while searching online. It reminded me of places we had eaten at while we lived in Europe. We had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and engaging, the food was terrific and the wine selection was excellent. We even had a nice discussion with Cyrille, the managing partner of the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we look forward to returning soon!

Bistrot Lepic is a neighborhood favorite of ours. Food is always great and service is responsive and attentive. Cyril Brenac, the owner of Lepic and its sister restaurant, La Picquette in Glover Park, is charming and wonderful. I highly recommend both restaurants for a low-key dinner with family or friends, or a special occasion. They will take good care of you.
