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.

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.

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.

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.

Are used to live in DC with my husband and I came all the time when I was in Georgetown. I moved back to Princeton New Jersey so on this special trip to DC I wanted to return and just get a great meal. I wasn’t disappointed.

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!

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!
