So fun. Loved it for Mother’s Day!
Fabulous! We ate outside in a lovely, private space. Wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day!
love this place, had the lobster frites and it was delicious...
Great experience and fair price. Congrats to the team
Great location with well designed outdoor seating in booths with warm air supply for your feet and open windows for your health. The food was excellent. Pea soup was an unexpected highlight. Service was good but each waitperson had too many tables.
People rave about Le Diplomate, and we appreciated the service and ambiance. But we found the food disappointing—it just wasn’t very special. We expected to be wowed, and we simply weren’t. We will try it again and hope the food will be better.
Celebrating our wedding anniversary with family
Great (as always)!
Great experience! We sat outside in an individual booth separate from our neighbors. The only caveat is that it’s open so it was quite windy. Our service was impeccable and the food was excellent. We would definitely come back.
We sat outside at the cutest table! It even had heat and an overhead light. The bread and latte are to die for- everything was delicious. Loved the warm shrimp salad. Our server was charming and didn’t rush us! Quality of the food is outstanding
Perfect as always
Always the best food and service in town. Consistently excellent in all aspects.
Wonderful evening! Couldn’t have been better. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent! Love this place!!
Favorite restaurant in DC! The fois gras, tuna carpaccio, and macaroni au gratin are a must for the table! The boeuf bourgignon is also to die for. Never disappointed at le dip!
Excellent as always in all ways. It wa our first outdoor dinner in more than a year. A great choice.
Our server was awesome, and the food was delicious! Can’t wait to return!
The meal was fabulous and the ambience was perfect. Perfect afternoon lunch to head into the weekend!
1st official dinning out experience as a family in a year- it was great. We did outdoor seating - staff was great, food really good. Great afternoon!
Portia, our friendly and able server, knew how to describe oysters, which is rare. The food was what you would have eaten in a popular bistro in a French secondary city. It might have arrived a bit hotter.
The restaurant is much quieter and more pleasant with physical distancing.
Fantastic experience! Super knowledgeable and friendly waiter. ONLY thing was we didn't have a table cloth lol. A must-try in DC.
Le Diplomate always does a wonderful job! Every dish on the menu is exceptional. The staff is friendly, and helps to make the experience always a special one. It is my favorite restaurant in Washington.
I’ve never had a bad meal at Le Diplomate. The restaurant is a little too loud indoors and outdoors, and the hostesses need to be reminded good manners are not the price of efficiency. The food and table service are some of the best in town.
I went for a late dinner with my friend Stephen to celebrate my birthday. My onion soup was delicious, and he enjoyed the warm shrimp salad....but the entrees left much to be desired. I was served lukewarm mussels with French fries that were bordering on cold. He was underwhelmed with his seared scallops. Neither of us finished our dinners. But we did have dessert to celebrate my birthday.
Love the outdoor seating booths. The food and the service were excellent
Delicious food, beautiful ambiance reminiscent of a French bistro. Service was great, too.
Amazing Sunday brunch.
Enjoying a breakfast
Excellent food and service
Le Diplomate is always a great place to visit, but this most recent visit was exceptional. Our server, Sean, was a delight and took good care of us. The whole place is set up to keep everybody safe during covid, which was greatly appreciated. And, as always, the food was fantastic. If you can, try the foie gras parfait!
Efficient & delicious
I ordered the scallops and when they arrived they were not hot and it seemed that they had been sitting around for a while. I should’ve asked for another but my friends mussels were good and I didn’t delay the meal. Actually, scallops tasted old and the entire dish was lukewarm. Hi I’m kicking myself for not speaking up. It wasn’t up to their standards as I’ve had the scallops many times before.
The server did not bring a spoon with the mussels and after we asked for a spoon, it did not arrive immediately. She was not very efficient.
Le Diplomate is our favorite restaurant....beautiful ambiance, excellent food and great service. It doesn't get any better than that!
Super yummy place with excellent service. Outdoor seating can’t be beat.
Always consistently good on food and service. Great ambience. Mosquitos a problems outdoors so need to mitigate this.
Amazing food and service and the outdoor setting is wonderful
Very enjoyable experience, superb food!
This was my first time going to Le Dip and the food lived up to its hype! We got the onion soup and escargot for appetizers, the duck and steak frites for entrees, and the Malbec, frose, and Chardonnay for drinks. The environment was great in the enclosed streatery table. It was loud due to being on busy 14th, but that’s to be expected. Pricey, but worth it!
Absolutely amazing. Honestly probably one of the best restaurants I've ever been to in DC. My wife, a very picky eater, even tried the Escargot and really liked it. Will definitely be coming back.
Our waitress Sirone(not aire about spelling) was amazing!!! She went above and beyond to make our dining experience amazing.
Lovely birthday outing.
