There is no better restaurant in DC to enjoy truly magnificent French food than Bistrot Lepic. Lilly our waitress is top-shelf and makes a fantastic martini. Appetizers, salad, soup and entrée fantastic. Wine list is complete and adequately priced.

The experience was not good. We were disappointed in the service, the food, and level of attention. The website says that tables are disinfected between customers and that didn’t happen. The only thing that saved the day was the delicious bread and the service provided by the only waiter that followed up with us. Our waiter forgot we existed. We were so disappointed.

We brought my parents to Bistrot Lepic on their first visit to DC since the start of COVID, and we had a lovely outdoor meal. The food was delicious (I highly recommend the trout and the calf liver), and the service was excellent as well. The upstairs area looks very charming, and we'll look forward to returning once we start doing indoor dining again.

Fantastic food and nice service!

As always, we loved the intimate setting, even outside on their patio. There is no chichi, but the quality of the food is on point and the wine list is amazing!

We’ll be back soon :-)

The food was outstanding, as I remembered from before the present plague. And it was nice to be able to eat in, rather than outside, a restaurant again! What can i say about the food, per se, it was outstanding French bistro food.

It was a lovely evening and we decided to find an outdoor venue. We had been to Bistro Lepic before and enjoyed it. This time was great also: the food was excellent , the serving size generous, the service friendly. It was noisier than we expected due to the traffic on the very nearby Wisconsin Ave. But inside this would not be a problem.

Bistro Lepic is our go-to place by ourselves or with friends. The classical menu is always good, and there are always at least two specials for appetizers and main courses. The service is prompt and friendly. We look forward to when circumstances allow opening the wine bar upstairs again - hopefully with the Tuesday evening wine tasting.

We had a truly divine Lamb Wellington, which we discovered at Bistrot Lepic's Christmas Dinner Special. The restaurant and chef graciously allowed us to order in advance just a few days ago. The dish is great--perfect--and the sides and bread are terrific.
We love Bistrot Lepic and are so grateful that they are still able to be available for the many of us--neighbors in Georgetown--who adore them. They also make great drinks.

The wait staff was very careful to provide continued service and the hostess was especially helpful in detailing the dishes. Good spacing. Salmon tartar and salmon with potatoes and snails were very good. The chef's "gift" of cheese onion tart pieces was an unexpected and delicious starter.
Lovely place for an early dinner.

I highly recommend the calf's liver: generous portions, with wonderful gravy, mashed potatoes, and other colorful-tasty veggies. The French bread is marvelous. I must stop writing for fear of drowning in my own saliva just thinking about this perfect meal!

To be present at Bistrot Lepic and to be eating outdoors on a spring-like eve, with the street quiet (unfortuantely due to the Pandemic) was like living once more.
the truite was delicious.

Sat outside on a cold day, but a sheltered table next to the building and an overhead heater kept us cozy. Outstanding service. Excellent bistro fare. Reminded us of Paris.

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!
