Customer Ratings

Le Diplomate is always great to dine in to regardless if it’s a brunch on weekends or just simply socializing with friends for late night supper. The dishes are simple yet very delicious and simply melt in your mouth. This place is also not stuffy. At night during summer months dining in outside simply will make you feel like your in Europe. I love and adore this restaurant. Truly one of the best place to eat or have cocktails in downtown DC. Easy to book reservations online and during fall they even provide patrons free apples on your way out. Definitely a must try!

The epitome of the DC food scene. Here you’ll find the best of everything – mouth-watering food and drinks, first-class service, and an invigorating ambience.

Come here for brunch, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. There’s very few dishes that you can go wrong with. While delicious all times of days, this is one of the best brunch spots in DC. You won’t leave disappointed once you have a croissant, quiche, or the Croque Madame.

Really don’t care about your diet? Order their pastry basket as well. You’ll thank me later.

We went here for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Due to a mix up, our entrees were served before our appetizer, but the manager was very prompt and politely asked if we’d like to have our appetizer first and they remade the entrees. It made our night. Customer service at its finest! Try the duck. You won’t be sorry.
