Stephen Starr brings his signature brand of hospitality and design to the nation’s capital with the opening of Le Diplomate, located at 14th & Q. Serving lunch, brunch and dinner, the stylish 260 seat restaurant transports diners to the beloved cafés of Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. The extensive menu features a variety of classic dishes including Onion Soup Gratinee, Steak Frites, and Poulet Roti as well as contemporary bistro fare, with dishes such as Shaved Veal Tongue with Mache and Bavette de Boeuf à l’Echalote. A thoughtfully curated wine list and cocktail program perfectly complements the cuisine and creates an environment suitable for romantic dinners or lively group gatherings. In warmer weather, enjoy dining "en plein air" in the stunning outdoor café where you can take in the bustling energy of DC while sipping on the perfect kir royale.

"So, I would not usually start off my review raving about the bread basket, but I the slices with cranberries and nuts were delicious. In memory of Julia Child, we ordered the beef bourguignon, with a side of green beans. We finished off our meal with nutella mochas and the tarte fine chocolate caramel. This dessert was perfection; I would come back to Le Diplomate just to eat it. Needless the say, the food was excellent on all levels.
During the evening, the manager stopped by tables with a smile which is always appreciated. Customer service is just as important as the food! Our server was initially friendly, but towards the end of our meal (we even got coffee and dessert), we felt "pushed out" by the not-so-subtle "leave soon looks", as well as "here is your check" with no kind "take your time," so I hurriedly finished my nutella mocha. At such a well-respected restaurant, this feeling was a HUGE disappointment. :( There were groups around us that had definitely arrived before us."

"A friend recommended this restaurant, and I'm so glad she did (she knows my style and taste very well). This place is fantastic -- from the ambiance, to the food, to the service. I'll definitely be returning here again the next time I'm in B'more!"

"My main meal (cheese plate and mussels) was nothing out of the ordinary, but my friend said she enjoyed her burger. The brownie sundae I had for dessert smelled/tasted delicious, so that was the highlight of my evening. My friend tried the holiday candy cane martini, but was disappointed that it tasted more orangey vs. pepperminty."
