Stephen Starr trae a la capital su marca del sector de la hospitalidad y el diseño mediante la apertura del restaurante Le Diplomate, que se encuentra en 14 y Q. El elegante restaurante con lugar para 260 personas, ofrece servicio de almuerzo, brunch y cena, y retrotrae a los comensales a los preciados cafés del Boulevard Saint-Germain en París. El extenso menú ofrece una variedad de platillos clásicos tales como sopa de cebolla gratinada, Steak Frites (bistec con papas fritas), y Poulet Roti (pollo asado), así como otros platillos de bistro contemporáneos, como la lengua de ternera con mache (tipo de verdura de hoja verde) y entraña de res al echalotte. La lista de vinos y cocteles elaborada cuidadosamente combina perfectamente con la gastronomía y crea un ambiente ideal para una cena romántica o un animado encuentro grupal. Cuando el clima está más cálido, se puede disfrutar al aire libre en el impactante café exterior, apreciando el movimiento animado de D.C. en compañía de un kir royale perfecto.

The steak and the chicken was outstanding. Our server was on top of our every need. When you have great service and outstanding food and never feel rushed you know you’ve had a superior ding experience. We’ll be back.

I had the tuna appetizer and the veal with mushroom sauce. The tuna was so salty that one could not taste the tuna. The mushroom sauce was watery and also way over salted.

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our dinner from beginning to end. The duck was cooked perfectly and it went well with the reduction and spinach. We can’t wait to dine at Le Diplomate again!

Bugs everywhere. The service was lovely, their staff is very nice. But after spending a meal fighting flies, gnats, and other bugs off of myself and my food (indoors with the windows closed) the last straw was when one flew into my eye and I had to go to the restroom to get it out - broken bug parts and all. I’ve never quite had an experience like it in any restaurant. Nice people, good bread, but the bugs are on another level. This is not a clean place.

First I want to say that we love this restaurant and the food and service never disappoint. This visit was a little different... there was a horrible fly problem at our table, maybe due to a decorative pumpkin that was going south, maybe cause we were sat near a window... I’m not sure but it was awful... we could barely enjoy our meal.

My sister and brother-in-law, married a few weeks ago, wanted a dining experience in Washington unlike one that they could get in their home town of Madison, WI. Le Diplomate fit the bill perfectly. They were thrilled and we had the same satisfaction that we experienced during our 12 prior visits to the restaurant. The French bistro is extremely consistent: every one in our party was pleased with every dish, and I have yet to experience a dish there that was less than very good. Portions are large and the food is rich; we left a fair amount of good food uneaten. Service was also exemplary, and our server correctly "read" our table to ascertain how we want the service to be paced, which was less rapid than one might expect from a perennially busy establishment. The place is loud, but we did not have any difficulty conversing with each other.

French onion soup is tremendous, so is ravioli. Half chicken is huge and steak au poivre very tasty. Couldn’t finish everything as too full. I can also recommend the Cremant

My sisters were in town and we had a great time. Our reservation was originally for 3, but we ended up with 7 at the last minute. The staff still accommodated us and within 10 minutes of our reservation time they sat our large group. Great service, great food. This is the perfect place if you have guests in town.

I have been going to Le Diplomate for years and it is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. However, it is definitely not a place for a large party or small children. I booked a reservation a month out for Sunday brunch and arrived to find that while we had a large table, it was in the worst place possible, almost wedged into another patron’s back. To make matter’s worse, the high chair for my 2 year old was terrible and would not allow for his legs to fit under the table. The food was good, but the table selection really took away from the experience.

I will be back, but it will be in a party of 4 or less and no kids.

Love this place, but be prepared to pay $12 for valet parking because parking in the neighborhood is virtually impossible. Also, try to sit outside because the noise level inside is deafening. But food, service, etc., is fantastic!

We go to Le Diplomate every anniversary and Valentine’s Day, and it always hits the spot. We have made our way through the menu and every time we try something new it’s just as delicious as what we previously thought was our favorite. This time I had the Poached Eggs Basquaise, which was just fantastic. The polenta was so creamy and was just top of the line.

We enjoyed having lunch here on a beautiful fall Friday. Sat inside but near an open window which was nice. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and our server brought us 2 glasses of champagne when we first sat down - a very nice touch. Their bread is fantastic - perfect for dipping in the garlicky butter of the escargots.

Go for the food and skip the drinks. I attended with a friend for my birthday and the food was outstanding. The menu includes traditional french dishes, pate, duck l'orange, tartare, etc. Drinks were okay- We ordered four martinis (rail vodka) which ended up being almost $17/each... Thats way too much for drinks. The wine list was also way overpriced. Bottles of wine which could be purchased at the Trader Joe's next door for $19, were listed at $70 on their menu. Do yourself a favour, go enjoy their food menu and pack a thermos for your drank ;)

I am in DC several times a year, and had never dined at Le Diplomate. Partly due to the difficulty in securing a last-minute reservation, and partly due to a local sibling mocking me for wanting to go where “everybody goes to see people.” Well, now I know why this has historically been The Place people go to see and be seen. The decor is charming and cozy, the staff are delightful, friendly, and knowledgeable, and the food is off the charts. The cheese selection alone makes it worth the trip. The trout almandine secures it as legendary. Had we not also had oysters, escargot, and our body weights in bread and wine, we would have definitely tried one of the beautiful desserts we watched pass by. Did I mention the wine selection is outstanding? I will be back, most certainly.

Le Diplomate used to be my go to place for brunch in DC. Unfortunately the last few times I have been there, the quality of the food has gone down considerably. It is really disappointing. I had the salad that comes with the prawn salad and it was heavily overdressed making the salad wilted. Previously I had the lobster omelette which was spectacular when I first had it and this time there was a quarter of the amount of lobster in the omelette. Didn't expect this deterioration of quailty. However, the bread remains supreme.

The experience was, as the French would say, correct. Nothing was egregiously terrible but it wasn't really good either.

Skip the oysters - mediocre at best. And...the oysters arrived with no explanation of what they were. For nearly $3 an oyster, that is truly unacceptable. The onion soup was more salt than soup. Basically they take your order and then throw your food at you. Entrees were pretty good though. Water glass was never empty but no coke refill. The napkin I was given had stains on it. It was clean but it just shows a lack of attention to detail.

So this is a hot restaurant on 14th St and everyone wants to eat there but the food is spotty and the service is underwhelming. I ate there soon after it opened and it was a really amazing. Now, not so much. Just phoning it in at this point.

This restaurant serves typical French bistro food. Both meals we had were perfectly fine (as was the service), but this wasn't food you think about days later, which is, for me, a criterion for giving a restaurant a 5 star rating.

We were visiting DC for a few days, sightseeing, enjoying ‘new to us’ restaurants. We both love the French bistro vibe and were excited to go to Le Diplomate.

The atmosphere was vibrant, fun and what you’d expect in this type of place. The food, was a huge disappointment. This food is definitely not authentic French or even really close to it.

My BF ordered Croquet Monsieur. The bread was not toasted (as it should be for this dish and therefore was soggy), the ham was not French ham but Virginia ham, the sauce was mediocre.

On the advice of the waitress, I ordered a dish of scrambled eggs in a pastry with mushrooms and sauce. I was assured the eggs wouldn’t be ‘rare as advertised but medium whatI ordered. I don’t know if it was the runny eggs or the sauce, but it was not good. I ate about half and later that day, did not feel well.

Disappointed is an understatement for a place we had been looking forward to for a month or more (made reservations early)

My advice, save your time and money and go somewhere else. The breakfast at The Lafayette is excellent and the service terrific.

Very disappointing experience. This restaurant is a victim of its own success. They are far too busy, and the staff is overwhelmed and undertrained. Results in unsatisfying service relative to the price of the food - fine for an Applebee’s, not this. And it’s surprising they are so busy! The restaurant is very loud (difficult to have a conversation with your family/friends). The food is mixed. We ordered the gougeres for an appetizer which were delicious. But then we ordered the onion soup which was so salty as to be inedible. We had the Trout Amandine, which was also a salt lick! My daughter ordered the duck a la orange, which was fantastic. Overall, food gets a “C”. Wine list is insanely overpriced (but this may be an East Coast wine tax problem- but I think these guys gouge). We did not order dessert. Then, I had to wait and finally ask for someone to process my $300+ bill! Really?? Will not be coming back in future trips to DC.

I would come to Washington DC and spend a week simply trying every item on the menu as a vacation in itself, that is how much we enjoyed the Le Diplomate. Atmosphere. amazing food plus ineffable je ne sais quoi make this our favorite place to eat in the city. Our waiter Nabil recommended dishes that each of us loved and took great care to make sure that our dining experience was unparalleled. Also incredible cocktails! We are now back home in Norfolk and I have no desire to eat out until we come back to the city :-) So much love for Le Diplomate.
