Superb!Highly recommend this restaraunt! Excellent service, great food!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMother's day fixed price menu had a good variety of choices for each of the three courses. The risotto was perfectly seasoned. The veal dish was expertly cooked; very tender and flavorful. The curved booth seating was very comfortable; the cushion was great for back support. Service was attentive pleasant and responsive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSustained ExcellenceAs frequent diners at La Bergerie for many years, every dining experience has been simply exellent; not one mishap. We had dinner on Mother's Day, and the restaurant was particularly crowded. In spite of the larger crowds, service was excellent. We ordered from the fixed price Mother's Day menu to sample "non regular" items, and were delighted with our choices. The Foie gras appetizer was absolutely amazing. It was well portioned and perfectly cooked. The escargot was also a stand out. If you try this, make sure you have ample bread for dippint the buttery garlicy broth. We both had the fillet, and both were cooked to our exact specifications, and expertly seasoned. I highly recommend La Bergerie, especially the Thursday Night Out.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA special placeWe've been going to La Bergerie for 20 years and have never had a disappointing experience. Lauren and his staff are first class and do everything to make you feel special and fed nothing but the highest quality food with a terrific presentation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentExcellent food and service..... The Dover Sole is the sets standard by which we judge all other restaurants.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a birthday lunch for threeHad a birthday lunch for three of us, and received a delicious chocolate dessert. Excellent caesar salad followed by salmon and seafood stew and creme brulee. All very good. Our waiter was exceptional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters!We discovered that everything on the two tasting menus can be ordered à la carte so we ordered the oysters on the half shell. They were the best oysters I have had in a long time--possibly ever. They were very fresh, large, plump, and well-chilled. They were prepared correctly--properly disconnected from both halves of the shell before reaching the table. They rested in the deep side of the shell with their liquor (juices). Delicious! Seriously, I would go back repeatedly just for the oysters. But the rest of our meal was wonderful, too. Tempura fried soft shell crab--not overcooked. They retained their light, juiciness while still having a crispy exterior. They were served with lemon risotto, which was a lovely complement to crabs.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, better service!We were treated like royalty --- greeted by Lauren, icy champagne and frosty glasses magically appeared as soon as we were seated at our favorite corner table which was adorned with a gorgeous arrangement of fresh lilies, prompt and fastidious service in every respect, delicious dinners from the two "amuse bouches" to delightful soufflés for dessert. All in all, this was an unforgettable evening, for us and our guests. KUDOS!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fois gras is always outstandingThe fois gras is always outstanding.

Service was very attentive but food was not as good as I remember it - not bad, just not as terrific as I expected. My lobster was chewy and the salad was uninspired. Husband's filet was excellent though. They provided a nice complimentary chocolate something for our anniversary and took our picture, but then neglected to give it to us at the end of the evening. Still a nice place for a special dinner.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful ...La Bergerie never fails to live up to expectations ... they have a great menu, the food is consistently delicious, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is perfect.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on a Thursday nightWe went on a Thursday night with a small group of friends to take advantage of a weekly Thursday night entrée special. The night we went it was roasted veal loin with wild mushrooms, which was excellent and a great value. Other courses were regularly priced, but a selection of wines was specially priced as well.
La Bergerie is always a special treat. It provides classic, traditional, more formal French dining and is an icon in Old Town Alexandria.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad outstanding service inHad outstanding service in a nice and quiet atmosphere.

Upon my arrival at the address, I almost missed the place because the sign was so small. But after a quick phone call they directed me and I was able to find the restaurant on the second floor of the building. It is very small and intimate with a cozy ambiance. My date had the pheasant and I had the rabbit with a nice bottle of wine to wash it down. The service was a little too spotty for my taste in the beginning but that may have been because the place was filling up. Other than that, I was a great experience. Must visit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experienceWe had a wonderful experience celebrating our anniversary at La Bergerie.

Monique Boulanger3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter LunchWe had the Easter fixed-price menu. There was a wide selection of dishes. My wife had the La Bergerie salad and Black Angus steak with a strawberry tart for dessert. My son had the pate, crab cakes and profiterolles for dessert. I had the Scottish salmon, braised duck and Grand Marnier souffle. The service was prompt without making us feel rushed. The steak was done just right. The crab cake was moist and tasty. My braised duck had a lot of flavor and seemed to fall off the bone. Another wonderful meal at La Bergerie. We'll be going back soon for my wife's birthday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM(If you publish this, do not(If you publish this, do not use my name.)
La Bergerie is a good bet for reliably good meals, and especially French meals. It's one of the few places you can get an authentic (and delicious) Kir. And the Grand Marnier souffle is to die for.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my boyfriend for hisI took my boyfriend for his birthday celebration dinner. We had been there before last December 31 for NYE.
