We chose to attend Sunday brunch, and thank God we made reservations. This place is HOPPING! We were a party of four and didn't wait for our table, even though we were early. Our server (with a French accent, of course) was prompt and well-spoken. Our order was correct and perfect and beautiful. We had the burger, the French toast, and baked eggs. Everything came out quickly! Very friendly staff in general. I will not order a burger from anyone else again - nothing can beat it!

The food, atmosphere, and service are incredible. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a more elegant but still affordable dinner in DC.

We went there on a recommendation and we were not disappointed.

We got a reservation for 9:15 but decided to do a walk in and got seated earlier. Everything from the appetizers to the entree with the drinks in between was absolutely fantastic. The restaurant indicates that it is Farm to Table and to our delight everything was fresh. It is obviously a very popular restaurant a definite must do upon my return to the area

I can’t say enough about Le Diplomate. This French bistro is so authentic you forget that your in the USA. The breads they bring to your table to begin the meal are wonderful. The frites served with many dishes are delicious. But the entrees are sensational! Mussels, steak frites, salad Niscoise, trout amandine, and the pates are all fabulous. The wine list is extensive and the desserts can’t be missed. A+++

From the moment we sat down at our table, we were in good hands. Nabil our server welcomed us and guided us through a wonderful menu. Since we were a table of four, Nabil made the right suggestions for a memorable meal. From the appetizer selection of mushroom tarts, the fois gras and the warm shrimp salad which we shared to the entrees reflecting the range of the menu each bite was amazingly delicious. Then the dessert selections and more wonderful conversation with Nabil. It was truly special evening made exceptional by Nabil, an individual dedicated to serving with style and charm.
