le meilleurs restaurant français de DC. Tout y est impeccable.
Had dinner outside… great food and service although has to wait 20 minutes for our table
Excellent as always - a trip to France every time I visit
La Piquette remains a neighborhood favorite. However, recently service has become sporadic. Since the introduction of electronic order pads, incorrect selections have become more prevalent.
Our outdoor table was under a new tent which had heaters and lights-very impressive!
The wait sstaff was so efficient and pleasant and the food excellent. They accomodated our vegetarian companion with no difficulty.
We loved it! We came here with the family and kids to my parents loved it. Can't wait to come back!
La Piquette is where we always head whenever we hunger for the best bistro food in town.
Excellent service. Ana is very nice
Anna was very courteous, efficient and nice. Wonderful person.
Our favorite DC restaurant. Unpretentious, not trendy. Great food. Great chef, servers, and busses who we enjoy like family.
A great place for a casual but delicious meal. The menu features a wide variety of dishes - there's something to please everyone.
I had a delicious dinner at La Piquette. Started with very fresh oysters on the half shell followed by NC shrimp sautéed with gigli pasta and mixed vegetables. For dessert, I had Canneles, which are small, tender butter cakes served with a paste cream. They were gorgeous! A big shoutout to the staff who frequently visited my table to see how I was doing. I was dining alone and not drinking, yet I was treated with the utmost respect. I’m going to return regularly. Thanks so much everyone at La Piquette!!🥖🥐🥘👍💝😀
Classic French food served superbly with excellent wine choice.
We made an outdoor reservation (two unvaccinated kids) and it was our first real dining in a year. I don’t think that year off clouds my judgment that yet again we had a phenomenal meal. The wine recommendations were spot on to our requests. The food was splendid. Charcuterie plate for the table. Starters included
Beef and salmon tartar and the octopus salad and they were all perfect. Entrees included mussels, scallops, and dorado, each splendid. They made a duck breast and pasta that my daughter (5 and adventurous) devoured. Desserts were also perfect (mousse, creme brulee, ice cream and fudge for the youngest). Overall just really great.
It was exquisite meal (as always). We are lucky to have this bistro close to our place,
Fantastic food! Eggs Benedict, mussels, ratatouille, the bread, the cappuccino, everything was great,
High quality food with good presentation. loved the octopus salad and the delicious apple tart.
Always delicious and pleasant.
Very nice experience
The food is always reliable and delicious. It's a great place in Cathedral Heights to enjoy a casual lunch or dinner with friends.
Always great food and we had an outstanding server. It was a first visit there for my clients and they walked away completely impressed.
Neighborhood gem -- great food, courteous staff, relaxed ambiance. five stars!
Nice outside dinning. Good food and service. Nice neighborhood place.
One of the absolute best in DC!
It was such a comfort and a pleasure, after the long hiatus, to find the restaurant just as we remembered it: everything a first-rate bistro should be.

Enjoyed the evening and the food / service were both great. Will definitely go back.
Friends birthday and it’s his favorite place. We always enjoy our food at this restaurant !
Food excellent as always. Always appreciate the great service.
Our family enjoyed a lovely lunch at this charming French styled bistro...tasty Salad Nicoise, savory steak frites, indulgent chocolate fondant and delicious apple tarte... The service was attentive and the entire experience was lovely...the next best thing to being in Paris.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant; consistently delicious
We reserved a high-top table, but were instead seated on the noisy lower level. Despite several tries by staff, the one of our bistro tables was wobbly and distracting throughout the meal.
It is so good being BACK at Piquette...and seeing David and Francis again
I happily over tipped. My guest had a great time.
La Piquette is a divine little restaurant with delicious food. I had not been there since the pandemic and had lunch on the lovely covered terrace. I had a fish stew, my guest had the Salad Nicoise (she liked it, but I was surprised that they used salmon), and we shared a perfect Crême Brûlée. The service was perfect. Thank you, La Piquette.
we ate outside and it was extremely comfortable and easy to talk
Excellent food and service! Portions are just the right size!
As always, my guests loved the restaurant and planned to come back. One told me that I was right; every bite was delicious. I'm looking forward to returning to La Piquette to celebrate my birthday. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience.
The small plates were excellent, and the wine was delicious!
Another dinner of perfection. Bronzino and swordfish. Rose. Excellent.
