Critic Tom Sietsema was "most surprised by Le Diplomate’s reliability" saying it's one of the hardest qualities to achieve. 265 seats w/ patio. 25 cooks are behind the scenes here. 3/4 stars.

Le Diplomate, under the care of executive chef Adam Schop, executes a perfect omelet, an expert steak au poivre, a divine apple tart, everything delivered by some of the best servers in the city.
At last a real French Bistro has arrived on 14th Street. Bienvenue Le Diplomate to the neighborhood.
- Gregory Nelson
Great food and great service. Looks like Pastis in NYC. I tried foie gras and lamb shank - both amazing. Beef Bourguignon was so-so, but I would definitely come back to try other dishes.

Basically, this is Parc in DC, and that's a good thing.

The Burger Americain is made with two slim, seared patties tucked into a golden bun baked in-house, draped with American cheese and topped with a few tart pickles, plus its own mystery sauce.
Starving or exploding, the Dark Chocolate Napoléon is beyond imperial. Definitely the best thing that happened to France since the Revolution.

Reservations are a must if you plan visiting Le Diplomate during peak hours. When you do get a table, don't miss the chicken foie gras parfait and the near perfect steak frites.
- Serious Eats
Great outdoor seating, bad street parking (valet available). And most importantly, the food & service is stellar. Perfect neighborhood for a post-meal stroll.

The Bitches Say: A! Snag a patio table and be sure to save room for dessert. The Bitches awarded Le Diplomate with the Most Worth the Hype and Best Dessert awards of 2013!

It can be hard to get a reservation inside, but the outside tables often have a reasonable wait on off-nights. Try to visit on a Monday or Tuesday.

If there's one thing you want to indulge on, it's the massive Grand Plateau seafood tower featuring rockweed, various oysters, clams, mussels, scallops, lobster, uni, snow & king crab, and shrimp!

Love this place. The food and service were impeccable.
- Jan Stevens
The steak tartare hors d'oeuvre is a real chef d'oeuvre.
In the future this will be a Taco Bell.

Pimm's and cheese platter. Nom nom
- Nour Khoury
Waiter a bit pushy to do dinner not just drinks and snacks. Otherwise quite lovely with great cheese/bread. On the expensive side.
- Ryan K.
Fantastic steak frites.
- Allison Kasic
The Burger Américain is just fantastic. From the bun, to the beef, to the cheese, everything is perfect.
