Bistrot Lepic & Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
Near perfect. Outstanding service from Lucia. Just the right amount of helpful. Always near, but never hovering. She knew the wine list well and made a great recommendation. The food was exceptional. Best escargot we’ve ever had. Foie gras very good too. Veal cheeks are not to be missed. Tremendous! And the salmon was perfectly cooked and delicious. Our new favorite Georgetown restaurant is Bistro Lepic.
What a gem! I brought my family here for Christmas brunch and it couldnt have been more impeccable. Delicious, thoughtfully prepared plates, excellent service and a cozy atmosphere made for a wonderful time. We can't wait to come back for the next special meal!
Bistrot Lepic is just around the corner from my house so it is truly my neighborhood restaurant. We eat there fairly often but this visit was a particularly fine one. I had a duck leg conit with sweet potatoes and bok choy - special of the day and it was wonderful. The duck fell off the bone into an don't leave drop of delicious rich sauce. We shared the Ile flottante which is regularly reliable. Hoping that the duck makes it onto the regular menu sometime in the future. A word about the ambiance. The restaurant lives up to its bistrot name. Almost always full but not so full that you can't get a reservation for spur of the moment dinners. And othger people seem to be enjoying their companions, the food and the wine.
I'd called the restaurant from the car and warned them that we were short on time for dinner, so they were ready for us--advised me that downstairs might be quicker (there was a jazz ensemble upstairs), had my table ready immediately, and steered us toward the dishes with less prep time. Still managed to be quite charming, delicious, and authentically French!
This restaurant is always a hit when we bring friends who are first timers. The chef never disappoints us as his diners . From the charming decor , good wines, attentive wait staff and most importantly their wonderful menu choices , we have yet to be disappointed for a delicious meal.
Lepic needs to get some fresh management and also renew the menu. It is too much boring "old style" French cuisine - no real special food. Only "being French" is not enough. Last time we had reserved a table for 5 at 8pm at did not get our table until 8:45pm because "the party before us was late arriving". Not the way to run a restaurant. Au revoir Lepic.
Classic French cuisine, impeccably prepared and served with great warmth. The restaurant is small enough that, even when busy, conversation is easy. Not oppressively formal, although the menu has such classics as veal cheeks. The wine carte is well selected. Upstairs is a warm, cozy bar with comfortable seating and artful decor.
This was a great find in Georgetown. We had a wonderful table in the wine bar upstairs. The waiter Martin was very attention and helpful, but not overbearing, he had a wonderful disposition. Highly recommend the happy hour, we started our dinner early before seven, and were able to try a number of different wines by the glass due to happy hour price. Food was very good. Very enjoyable.
The food, service, and ambiance were great! Ordered the terrine to start and the flavor and preparation was out of this world. They have some oldies but goldies on the menu but I recommend trying some of their specialities. The kidneys were extremely flavorful and tender. The server was attentive and the owner stopped by the table to check on the food. Will definitely come back!
A quiet location located outside the hubbub of Georgetown that met my desire for not being noisy (business discussion). But I'd have to say the food was at best 'ok' and when the bill came (with one glass of wine) I was shocked at the price. Not one I'd recommend or try again. But maybe we tried the wrong things. I had the fish special and associate had the duck confit. I don't think either of us were impressed.
We had a wonderful dinner with an excellent bottle of wine for my birthday. I have wanting to visit this restaurant for awhile now and DC Restaurant Week was the perfect occasion. My wife enjoyed the Beef Medallion and I had the Kidney dish (Rognons de veau). Both were very filling and were on the Restaurant Week menu. Oh yea, the wine - we enjoyed a bottle of red Cahors from the south of France - delicious, melt in your mouth flavor.
As if anticipating the excellent food were not enough, the very friendly and caring service is beyond what is expected or received in most restaurants.
My husband and I always leave the bistro anticipating our next return.
I introduced a few friends to Le Pepic after a concert recently and they are now ardent followers also.
The appetizers are so good, particularly the onion tart. I most often order fish, and every time it is perfectly cooked.
Also a hit with everyone, is the free parking directly across from the restaurant.
