Charming cozy room with good food and service
Reminds me of small Parisian bistros. Sweetbreads, fois gras, crusty warm bread, a gem in Georgetown. Unpretentious, but they could be given the quality of the dining experience
We always love this restaurant which is why we keep going back.
One of my favorite French restaurants. Traditional fare, but all well prepared. Sometime service could be a little friendlier, but it is certainly efficient. A must try if you like French cuisine.
Everyone's meal was amazing as usual. Specials: Sweet Breads, Soft-Shell Crab,and Duck were terrific and the signature salmon encrusted with shredded potato was more delicious than ever! The bread served is the best in DC!
Three of us were in town for the weekend. Found this place on Open Table and thought we'd give it a try. Very impressed. Food was very good and service was great.
A very high quality experience with outstanding food, a staff that can handle a challenge and an authentic atmosphere, slightly off the beaten path in otherwise busy Georgetown.
We arrived early for dinner and learned that one needs reservations for the wine bar when there is live music. OK. We were able to sit at the bar; the music was good. The downstairs restaurant was tight, but food was good. Value was good.
Lovely place for lunch in Georgetown. It has an intimate and charming ambience - the service and food - asparagus soup and shrimp risotto - were excellent.
This was a thoroughly delightful Mother's Day dinner, with a very reasonable and well-selected menu. The lamb T-bone chops were perfectly done (medium-rare) and the blue Peruvian potatoes were delicious. The boeuf daube was also excellent, over pasta shells that were served al dente. The wine list, though brief, was also comprehensive and reasonably priced. The four of us had a wonderful time at Bistrot Lepic.
Food was only fair. Fish was overcooked, shrimp appetizer flat. Best entree was broiled lamb, which was good. Dessert was the best course. Mother's Day menu should have had more kid-friendly options. Service was friendly and efficient, wine selections were good and fairly priced.
We have gone to Bistrot Lepic many, many times and we have never been disappointed in the food or the service and we appreciate the attentive yet relaxed pace of the service that allows us to enjoy our wine. The "buy the glass" wine selection is getting a little redundant for us as we have gone so often. The half glass option is really nice since we enjoy trying different food/wine combinations.
This was the seventh year my son and I had Mother's Day lunch at the Bistro. (I dine there at other times in the year as well). The high quality of food, service and ambience have been consistent over these several years - Bistro Lepic is a Georgetown institution, but it is also worth going across town (and even farther) for. For lunch, I had a light but flavorful veloute of peas, and lamb in shallot sauce that was perfectly cooked. The bistro gets the ambience exactly right - a combination of French attention to dining detail and an atmosphere that makes the matron in her Hermes scarf and the twenty-something couple in sundress and polo shirt equally at home. The management and staff are very personable. Great wine bar upstairs.
Amazing French food but pretty spendy. I would go there all the time if my wallet could afford it!
Very enjoyable and leisurely meal in wine bar is the perfect location to sample many superb appetizers and wine selections.
Bistrot Lepic was recommended to me by a local friend for my two-day first-time visit to Washington with my parents. My friend told me that it was her parent's favorite restaurant. What was really great was that since my parents don't speak English, the waiter immediately realized and asked another waiter that spoke Spanish to serve us. It was great because I didn't have to translate all the menu and my parents felt really comfortable (which is a downside in many restaurants I've seen in the USA having such a huge Spanish-speaking population - a menu in Spanish would be wonderful). While the space is on the small side and you can hear other tables conversations, the food is amazing and we really enjoyed our visit.
great neighborhood restaurant.. and great service
Great choice come authentic French food in Georgetown.
Great food and service. We were all happy with our meals (Onglet, Mussels, Merguez and Redfish). Definitely recommend a reservation for Sunday lunch/brunch. very filling and delicious. Upstairs has more of a bar atmosphere and is very cool. Good wine list too!
We did not like our table being so close to the table next to us. We could hear each others conversation and spoke to them several times. Too close!
We had Sunday brunch while visiting DC for business, and making the trip to Georgetown was worth the cab ride. The service was excellent as was our food. It made us feel we were back in the north of France that rainy morning.
Food was very good tables were way too close
not enough room for the elbows. We liked it very much.
Our party of 6 was seated at the upstairs wine bar. It was eclectic seating but comfortable and had the full menu. The location in Georgetown was easily accessible, with no problem parking after 6:30 pm. Service was excellent as always. Black trumpet mushroom appetizer delicious as was the foie gras. Salmon and duck entrees (duck was a special) were superb.
A very pleasant place to order lunch -- excellent service, a good selection of wine and beer, a versatile menu, and a nice atmosphere (not pretentious, not noisy, and not hurried!). Our food selections--the trout, the coddled eggs, and the mushroom omelette were well received; our appetizer--the pigs feet--not as much (oily and undistinguished). The desserts were excellent--especially the mint ice cream, unusually tasty. (Real mint, I suspect, not extract.) We'll return.
Wonderful. Though it was a little difficult to understand the daily specials through my server's rather thick French-accented English, the food was wonderful. I had the onion tart followed by the cassoulet. I can recommend both highly.
We had a wonderful dinner with old friends and lingered well into the evening. The service was excellent, and they gave us plenty of privacy and time. The food was delicious and creative, servings just the right size. There were a number of excellent specials the night we were there. it really feels like being in France.
Always love this spot. Took the parents and brother here over Easter weekend and the could not compliment it enough. Best French cuisine and wine list in town. Done and done.
Excellent menu with items attractive to all in our party of seven - lots of sharing and appreciation for authentic preparation and great taste. We tried this out as a pre-theatre dinner spot before heading to KenCen for a 9 PM performance, and appreciated the easy, free parking after 6:30 across the street. Piece of cake to go the mile and a bit to KenCen. Our party particularly enjoyed the range and quality of starters, salads and appetizers, and the veal scallopine special was excellent, as were all the main courses. Clean plates all around. Try the mint ice cream - tastes like someone just picked the mint and crushed it into the ice cream, so fresh.
We love this neighborhood gem. The food is high quality and consistent. If you like French cooking, you will love this place.
Consistently very good and always full.
sat upstairs in the wine bar and noshed on lots of apps. very cute.
We had a very nice dinner upstairs, and were entertained by an excellent vocalist with a bass and guitar. All in all, a very enjoyable meal and evening.
excellent service, nice place, but food is nothing special.
By day, Bistro Lepic is a wonderful spot to meet clients or friends for lunch. In the evenings, head upstairs to the wine bar. Same great food, superior wine list, very cool vibe. Tuesday evening wine tastings and Wednesday evening's live jazz make Bistro Lepic THE fun place in this mostly residential neighborhood. You won't be disappointed!
As close to a real bistrot as I have found in DC. The prix fixe lunch was outstanding.
Definitely a place for "ladies who lunch".
My waiter was wonderful! So helpful, especially with selecting a wine. The list is very long and he helped pick the perfect one, both in tast and price. Very kind and friendly service.
The wine bar upstairs at Bistrot Lepic is a wonderful spot for a date.
Excellent restaurant with great food and service!
