Food was excellent and has not flagged over the decades I have known this restaurant. And the room is very pleasantly quiet thanks to ceiling noise absorbing panels.

The only reason not to recommend Bistrot Lepic would be to keep for yourself. It's a gem. The service is attentive and the food never disappoints.

Bistro Lepic surprised us with glasses of champagne during dessert as one person had a birthday. It made our already nice evening even better. All 5 of us enjoyed our dishes and the wine.

I've always wanted to go to the Wine Bar. I've dined downstairs several times, but will opt for the more casual upstairs going forward. Wonderful menu, delicious wines, superb staff. Was looking for a cozy place where I can meet with family and friends and feel like I definitely found it. Already booking for a dinner with family in December.

Bristot Lepic is the best option for authentic French food in Georgetown; and quite possibly in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

I came here to eat the other night with a party of 5 people for my birthday. The restaurant is very quaint and gives a really intimate feel. A hidden gem for sure! The restaurant was packed at 7pm on a Saturday night so I highly recommend reservations. We ordered escargot and foi gras for appetizers. Very falvorful. For dinner, I enjoyed my salmon meal. My boyfriend ordered the duck confit. We placed our order, but later on the waiter came to apologize that they ran out of his duck confit. The service recovery here was absolutely amazing!!!! My boyfriend ordered another meal off the menu (the duck breast) and they gave him his meal on the house. When the table all got our meals, they gave him a salad so that he would at least be eating same time too. After all our meals were done, the waiter came over and also poured the table another bottle of wine. I have to say I would definitely be back because this restaurant truly cares about their customers... and every dish my table ordered was excellent.

Had the pepper steak which was excellent. My wife loved her cassoulet. I normally have their veal cheeks which are amazing and my wife loves the trout. Cozy space with great service and reasonable prices. What's not to like.

This was an amazing dining experience. The meal was served very soon after ordering. The plates were beautifully presented. And the hostess was so friendly as was the wait staff. We felt very warmly welcomed. Food was exquisite, a real authentic French meal. My daughter commented that the chef was very creative with typical French dishes.

The ambiance, service and food was amazing! We had a wonderful time! The only thing was that one of the coffee cups had a red mark around one side when it was brought to the table and we had to send it back for a clean one.

We enjoyed our dinner. At the sane time, I’m don’t think we would go back.
Tables are very close together, almost a sense of somebody else joining you for dinner.
Food was ok, no special spin on any of the dishes we ordered.

This is a favorite. It has yet to disappoint. The food is simply superb. The service top flight. Our table for two on the side wall was close to other diners but our conversation was unimpeded. I will continue to patronize this splendid place.

My favorite restaurant inDC but I had not been to town in a long time. It is still spectacular. Had the trout meuniere and it is the best I have had anywhere, even in France. Also tried the pig feet appetizer and it was wonderful. Trust me, try it. You won’t believe how good it is. My date had the curried chicken and loved it. Very mild curry flavor I am going to schedule a trip back to DC just to go again to this wonderful restaurant!

We had a very nice time sitting in the window and remembering our French. The snails, omelette, poached eggs and salmon tartare were great. Especially the snails. We sopped up all the parsley, garlic and buttery juices with fabulous bread. Will go back.

Our favorite neighborhood restaurant, well worth the trip up Wisconsin Ave. The wine bar offers free wine tasting on Tuesday evenings (6-8 pm), and food can be ordered from the regular menu or the specials of the day. The tasting wines are usually quite good, they come with a detailed explanation. The menu has some very French items (pig's feet! It sounds odd but is delicious.). The wine list has several interesting selections at reasonable prices. The ambiance is French, the staff is very friendly, and the noise level is moderate, especially early in the evening. Highly recommended.
