Great service. Great food.
Immaculate! Incredible food, flawless service from the runners, bussers, and server, beautiful restaurant, and a great location. The french onion soup is very, very salty.... but luckily our server was very attentive refilling our water :) Snag a reservation and come here for sure! We had a great evening.
I love Le Dip. I am a fussy person by nature, but I can't find anything less than perfect in our last dinner there. My bourbon Old Fashioned was amazing. The bread basket great. My scallops Provencal superb. Our waiter, Michael, excellent. I will be honest and say I don't care much for the 1:30 hr limit, but I understand this is COVID era and necessary. we probably wouldn't have stayed further, but we used every minute of that 1:30 with dessert and coffee.
Always a fan of ale Diplomate, with COVID restrictions they’ve made the best of the situation. Granted we had our own booth and the best service, sitting in the main stretch of 14th can get noisy. But always happy with everything Le Diplomate pulls out!
Great service! Menu options were great
Incredible atmosphere, incredible food. The bread was delicious. I enjoyed a nice Mezcal cocktail as recommended by the waiter and then a medium rare Steak Frites. 10/10 would recommend and go back.
Wonderful! Service a touch slow at times but that could also be personal preference!
Always love coming back to Le Dip. Loved our service and food/drinks were fantastic as always.
Great ambiance, comfortable given social distancing measure put in place
Hostess was terrible, waitperson was nice, food was very good & the foot traffic and noise levels were very high.
It was such a pleasure to be able to return to the Dip for the first time in a year! We were seated outside at our request at a very comfortable two top where we could fawn on all the dogs that walked by, a special treat. As always, the service and the food were wonderful, easily up to the standards of pre-pandemic dining. We already are planning our next visit. Thank you especially to our server Douglas who was attentive but never intrusive!
Friends in town. Wanted to show them a DC restaurant. No chains, etc. in a neighborhood
Perfect night all around!
Superb food, excellent service, very nice outside seating areas.
Went there to celebrate a birthday, so I wanted to make sure it was going to be a great experience. Le Diplomate didnt disappoint. Was a perfect evening
Loved it. Amazing food. Love the outdoor seating. Perfect meal great service. My favorite DC restaurant!
Lovely beautiful day beautiful experience
Le diplomat is our go to! One of our favorite restaurants in dc! We’ve been there so much and it’s never a disappointment!
The food was fine and the outdoor booths are wonderful. My one complaint is that everything arrived a little too fast, with no spacing between courses, so we didn't feel like we could completely relax and enjoy the warm evening outside. I'm sure they're doing this to ensure they make money during the pandemic, but it's not the "homage to French cafe culture" that they claim on their website.
Le Diplomate is one of our "go to" restaurants in DC. We're particularly fond of the French onion soup and the lobster risotto. The way that the restaurant is set up to meet social distancing during the pandemic - particularly outside - makes for a very enjoyable experience.
My favorite restaurant in DC. Never disappoints!
Always delicious, always Le Dip
EXCELLENT restaurant. Food, service, atmosphere, I loved everything!
The service was excellent. They were generally attentive without being over bearing. The server overheard us talking and heard it was my friend's birthday and brought out a small desert with a candle. The food was good, but the seasoning on the fish was a bit too oily. The bread was not real fresh. Wine menu is good and while not cheap, not excessively overpriced. This is a COVID review so anything about ambience needs to be taken with that understanding. They initially tried to seat us in a portioned area that had an extremely small table and the partitions (while clear) were so close I bumped my elbows. They were good and found us a table in an area without the patrons and just better spacing. It was actually quieter on the street than it is inside when I have gone in for drinks. The restaurant is not cheap, and while it would be my top choice for a nice place to go, it is definitely in the top 10.
The burger was outstanding!
Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Had a wonderful patio lunch at Le Dip to celebrate my friend's due date. The service and food quality/presentation fantastic. We really enjoyed our experience! You just can't go wrong with this place. Bravo!
Le Diplomate never disappoints. Food was excellent and service was top-notch. We enjoyed our lunch al fresco.
I love this restaurant. I have been every time I am in D.C. The food is just as delicious as French food should be. The bread is especially good and the fries are fabulous plus a very nice wine list.
Nothing negative to say at all! Food was superb and the outdoor atmosphere was super safe during covid. What an absolute pleasure!
Food is always great but the 1.5 hours left us no time to order entrees. Ended up settling for just apps. Next time we’ll make sure to order everything up front
Incredible, a wonderful addition to the restaurant scene of DC and easily one of the best.
Excellent French cuisine near Logan Circle. One of my favorites in The District.
Good like always, and good spacing and Covid precautions for outdoor dining.
Favorite restaurant in DC
One of my very favorite places to eat!!! The food was absolutely delicious! Staff was very helpful with selections too!
Easter dinner! Awesome!
The food is SO consistent here. Almost back to the full menu. We went Easter Sunday and while dinner was excellent, service was not as smooth as usual - we had to ask for bread plates to be cleared, please bring more water, ketchup etc. It was about 3/4 full - not at capacity.
As always, I wish they would lower the music, which was too loud even outdoors.
The profiteroles with ice cream were killer!
