"First time here since they redecorated. Now looks more Mexican than Spanish with many bright colors and busy patterns. Not to our taste but obviously some people like it. Food and service are still excellent as always. Very convenient to Shakespeare and Woolly Mammoth theaters."

"We always enjoy the small plates at Zaytinya, an especially good value at lunch. Also, much quieter at lunch than in the evenings."

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.

"Our first time here. Really enjoyed the Sunday brunch but need to go back for an evening meal before forming an opinion on the food as a whole. It was very crowded and noisy when we arrived, but we were seated in the quieter room beyond the main room and so were able to have a conversation."

"First time at this restaurant--a great find! The natural setting is beautiful and the decor of the restaurant complements it nicely. Service could not have been better. The 3-course Restaurant Week menu was a real value. We will definitely be back."
