I took my mom here during restaurant week for her birthday. The food was awesome, and our server was attentive and helpful. I had the crispy pigs feet, almond trout, and soft meringue. I’ve never had pigs feet before and didn’t really know what to expects, but I was very impressed! I’d highly recommend giving it a taste. It was super creamy and crispy, with a lovely gravy. My mom had the chocolate passion fruit cake, which was kind of like a mousse and very refreshing. Definitely check this place out!

We went for Restaurant Week and it was wonderful. The space is small and it was packed on a Friday night. The servers were quick and attentive. The food was delicious. We will definitely go back.

I've eaten at Bistrot Lepic a few times now, and each time I always kick myself for not going more often. The ambience is great, especially upstairs and on Wednesdays when they have live music. The food is delicious and is the right portion size to leave full but not overly so. I went most recently for Restaurant week, and each course was simply divine and really made my week. Can't wait until the next time we go!

Service was excellent, food was amazing! Went for the DC Restaurant Week and had a 3 course meal for $40. Everything tasted fantastic, so far this was our best DC Restaurant week experience by far. Food seemed very authentic as well. Definitely coming back here and making this a usual dining spot!

Bistrot Lepic is a perfect-hole-in-the-wall hideaway for an intimate dinner with a friend. The Wednesday jazz in the bar upstairs adds a lot to the ambience. I love this place.

Special New Years Eve. Menus was spectacular. Shrimp with lemon/lime risotto was delicious and introduced a main course of dorade that was perfectly seared, moist, tender and complimented with slightly charred tomatoes and basil dressing. Assorted pastries hit a high note, not too heavy but delicious. Wine and champagne reasonably priced and as always, excellent service. Will be back soon.

The service definitely needs improvement. They were nice but when we arrived we were ignore then we asked about the live ban and were informed that it had been cancelled. We asked about dining upstairs as we could hear music from there we were confused response. After we were seated and served the first course we decided we needed to wash our hands before eating. My companion came back saying that there was wonderful music upstairs but the decor and ambience was immensely better than downstairs. We made the request to be seated upstairs which was granted. Also the service was somewhat slow and they got our order incorrect they were always polite and nice. The food was wonderful and once we were settled we enjoyed ourselves immensely and will go back.

Bistrot Lepic has long been a favorite of ours in DC. We hadn't been there in a while because of the pandemic; but, we're pleased it has maintained the quality standards that we always experienced. It's a quiet gem of a restaurant serving excellent French fare!

Party of four with diffrerent entrees and all highly rated: duck confit; potato-crusted salmon; beef. Appetisers, also, were terrrific, from the classic snails to a great wild mushroom fricasee.

The wine, too, was good; just the standard cote du Rhone, but a good bottle.

This is my favorite French restaurant in DC. The service is A+ and the food is five-star. I had the canard confit and she had the filet of sole. The escargot is the best in DC and the split pea soup was amazing with that old world taste. Martinis made to perfection and wine list is abundant and appropriately priced.

Casual service at best: our American waiter asked us as we finished dining, "Are you done, yet?" when "May I clear your plates?" would have been better. The French staff is more polite. As one of our party remarked, excellent food; "Fawlty Towers" service.
Lovely evening, nevertheless, and we'll keep coming back.

Hadn't eaten there in a few years because I had been going to its fine sister restaurant, La Piquettte. But this restaurant is a little more upscale in seating and the food and service and dining experience were excellent. I had the onion tart with bacon, the orange duck special, and the pear tart with creme Anglaise; accompanied by a fine 2015 Pomerol priced under $100. A really perfect meal. I'll be back--soon.
