    Always excellent. Great waiter and sommelier. Had 8:30 reservations, a bit put off by a manager that insisted we get our order in because the kitchen closes at 9. Still a pleasant evening

    Bistro Lepic is my go-to French restaurant in DC. Took advantage of restaurant week and enjoyed another splendid meal, great martinis and superb selection from wine list. On street parking is ample in this goldmine of French cuisine in NW DC.

    We went to Bistro Lepic during Restaurants week. They advertised a 40 $ 3-course menu, which is reasonable for DC. I was a bit disappointed by the fact that the sweetbreads as appetizer were no longer available. Also, there was a 4 $ extra for snails. The veal kidneys were quite tasty, though, although they were not plentiful. The Ile flottante for dessert was also very nice.

    Four is us were there during the Restaurant week. The service was attentive. Live jazz was lovely. Out table was so close to another that it felt another couple was dining with us. The food was mostly very good, but one main dish — quail — was not tasty at all. Had to leave it on the plate. Good solid B.

    I specifically indicated when I made reservation that we were coming for Jazz night. I was sent a confirmation and indicated again in reply that we were coming for Jazz night. All of that got lost. We were given a table downstairs. Fortunately when I inquired there was a table available upstairs until 8:30. In addition, we ordered from the fixed price dinner. I order beef. There was absolutely no indication on the menu that this entree was priced $8.00 above the fixed price $40. It would be very difficult to recommend your place.

    I was pleased to have an opportunity to sample Bistrot Lepic's menu at Restaurant Week prices. The food was delicious. I was disappointed when the check was presented however. I had called earlier in the day to ask about the corkage fee and was quoted $25. When the bill arrived, the corkage fee was $35. When I questioned the amount after explaining that I had specifically asked about it, I was told that the person quoted last year's price. That's very disappointing; people shouldn't answer a question if they're uncertain of the correct response and the server response should have been something better than "too bad."

    We have been to Bistro Lepic before. It never disappoints. The food was outstanding, we had French onion soup (x2) and endive salad to start with, and the cassoulet, mussels, and duck as our main dishes. For dessert: floating island and creme brûlée.

    The special Christmas menu was not worth the price; the popsy (and often too loud) background music was inappropriate for a fine French restaurant at Christmas. I ordered the grilled sardines, which were not particularly distinguished. The Cornish hen was well overcooked. A server asked about our meals and replaced the hen with a slightly less overcooked version (I couldn’t finish so took the rest home and made chicken salad with the leftovers, which moistened them up). I will give them credit for trying. My spouse ordered the Jerusalem artichoke soup; again, good but not distinguished. He had the wild boar, a better choice than my Cornish hen but nothing special. We both ordered the bouche de Noel, which was also underwhelming. I’m not really sure what the very thin icing was; I had expected a lovely ganache, but it was not that. We have dined at this restaurant before and liked it, so I am not yet ready not to recommend it, but we would not go there for a special menu again.
