Very good classic French bistro dishes. Steak frites were great, and appetizers and dessert too. Superbly curated wine list. Solid neighborhood spot.

We love Bistrot Lepic, however the terribly slow service was a very negative issue yesterday. Our food was cold when served.
We are aware of staff issues everywhere. Nevertheless after we mentioned to the manager that may be more help was required, he said: no! This was not expected. (but may be he did not know... (?)

A perfect meal. We have been several times across the years, but I think last night was the best ever. We both had medallions of beef. Beef was cooked to perfection. I tiny bit too much salt for me, but when that is the only issue, I almost hate to mention it! I started with the endive salad. Just delicious. My husband had the charcuterie plate to start and loved it. Friendly but professional staff. And the other diners are always lovely. We highly recommend. Besides, it’s locally owned and small! Just our style.

We met friends for dinner at Bistrot Lepic, because they said it was the best French bistro in DC, and they are right. We sat outside, which was lovely. Standout dishes included duck confit, trout, and foie gras, all delicious!

I am incensed because they include in the menu dishes with names that do not correspond to what they serve you. Like we say in french MINABLE

Among the classics It says
Pied de cochon 12
Crusty boneless pig feet, onion mustard sauce

IY IS HORRIBLE. Little or nothing to do with pig feet. Nothing to do with the pig feet you buy in France at the charcuterie

Desserts. Gateau Basque –Almond pastry cream cake

NOTHING TO DO WITH A GATEAU BASQUE NOTHING
Mega sugaree cream almond cake with no texture, no flavor. HORRIBLE

We three friends went there for lunch. We had a great time: the food was superb, the service excellent, it could not have been a more pleasant experience. The dining room was very quiet and we could easy have a conversation. We had the trout and one person had the salmon salad. Dessert was the classic creme brulee, which is always outstanding. It's my favorite restaurant in the DMV.

The food, drinks, desert and service was excellent. Only the mosquitos were eating us alive despite of the Off application. Also, the prices are aa little steep.

Perfect in almost every way. Authentic French cooking. Attentive service. Portion size just right. Deserts amazingly good. Marked down a little because dining on the side walk next to the traffic can be a little loud but you know they are doing a fine job of adapting to circumstances. Bravo!

The service was impeccable. We were a party of four and started with appetizers. The tuna tartare was superb, fresh and lightly seasoned. The onion tart was excellent too. The mixed green salad with walnuts and strawberries was large and very fresh as well, and the boneless pigs feet were tender and flavorful. Two of us had the beef medallions with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, and crisp sautéed seasonal vegetables. The other two had trout which has always been perfect. Desserts are not to be missed. The creme brûlée, special coconut cake, and profiteroles were delicious. This small restaurant is a gem.

Overall, very pleased with this place...and plan to visit again. The food was very good, and the service was professional, courteous and accommodating. A nice upstairs bar for a before dinner cocktail was pleasant with a laid back, unpretentious vibe. I can see why the place remains popular.....they present, deliver, and finish very well.

We have dined at Bistro Lepic over the years and always found it to be an oasis in DC. That continues even during the pandemic. The restaurant's standards have not changed and that in itself was comforting when dining at other establishments has become more of a fast casual experience.
The atmosphere was refined but relaxed in the indoor dining area. Staff were welcoming and attentive and adhered to safety/ hygiene protocols. The traditional French bistro cuisine is well prepared and came out at relaxed intervals.
