We were happy to be back at Bistro Lepic. Food and menu are terrific. But we were a bit uncomfortable at how close the tables are right now and fact that everyone on staff was not masked. Also the busy staff had some trouble keeping up with everyone as it was very crowded.

The room is very pretty and very French looking. Service very attentive, and we did not have to wait long for our food. The meal was exceptional. Highly recommend it, but you must book.

We really liked Bistrot Lepic and will return. The escargot (and bread to sop up the garlic) were perfect. The endive salad was a bit acidic and the only weak point in an otherwise lovely meal. The cassoulet with a Cornas red were a perfect November day combination. We finished with a pineapple tart and a dram of rum. Note that rum is actually the perfect after-dinner drink with pineapples.

Great food, truly delicious - the duck confit was falling off the bone so tender. The fresh veggies and the mushrooms were all delicious. The service was fantastic and would make a great date night spot. The lemon tart was delectable!

Vegetables were over salted and inedible. Waiter never stop over after delivering our meals nor could we get his attention. Previously had a delicious meal, perhaps there has been a chef and management change?

Wonderful experience. Food and service was par excellence. The room had a warm, French ambiance. The only negative I had was the wine glasses that we got with our bottle of wine. 1950’s heavy style small glasses. I noticed people at an adjoining table had modern large glasses. A minor point in an otherwise great meal.

A recent discovery of ours, we enjoyed introducing friends to the gastronomic pleasures of this establishment. As a family restaurant in business nearly 30 years, Bistro Lepic provides a warm and cozy environment with a lovely touch of the Parisienne in its decór. The food is consistently above average with a pleasing choice of specials.

Bistrot Lepic is one of our longtime favorite places. The food is always splendid and the service is lovely. The only reason I gave the "ambience" only 4 stars is that we were eating brunch outside and the traffic was extra noisy that day — nothing the restaurant could control. Dining inside is always terrific. Everything from the fresh bread and butter to the exquisite takes on brunch cocktails makes it worth the visit.

What a delight!
I've been driving by for a year or two, but never stopped in. It was a pleasant surprise. The food was outstanding. Perfectly prepared rockfish. Definitely try the mushrooms, savory and delicious. Extensive wine list and knowledgeable maîtresse d'.
Can't wait to visit again.

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
