We went on a freezing monday
We went on a freezing monday evening in mid-March (with a reservation) and were the only people in the restaurant, and so our experience was probably atypical. However, the food was outstanding - we had the chef's tasting menu - each course got better and better, and the wine pairings were well-chosen. Service was impeccable with a knowledgeable yet unobtrusive waiter. Very romantic ambiance with an open fire. Very highly recommend - if you are in this area, it is a must.

The fact that they let us
The fact that they let us relax with a drink before sitting down, even though we arrived right before our reservation, was very wonderful. The portions came quick, and the servers were polite and very fun.

My husband and I went to L'Auberge
My husband and I went to L'Auberge Provencale to celebrate his birthday. The food was AMAZING! It was probably the best meal I have ever had. My husband and I are food and wine lovers and this restaurant exceeded both of our expectations. The food was perfectly prepared and the wine list was out of this world. The meal was on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. I can’t wait to go back to L'Auberge Provencale.

One of the best restaurants
One of the best restaurants we have had the joy of dining at in the Northern Virginia area. We worth the trip to White Post.

Lovely Dining Experience
Let me start by saying we were guests at the Villa at L'Auberge Provencale. That in itself had the makings of a fabulous weekend. Our dinner Saturday evening was just wonderful. We chose the 3 Course option and all courses were very good. All courses were beautifully presented and of exceptional quality.

Great food, friendly staff
The food has wonderful flavor with beautiful presentation. Ambiance is bright and cheerful. European style smaller portions, but adequate.

Steep but good for special occasion
Steep but good for special occasion - very nice atmosphere, service, romantic ambiance and music, and exquisite food. The food is almost like eating a work of art.

We were familiar with the restaruant, but hadn't been there in several years. It was as great as we remembered. Food was fantastic. Service was outstanding - there when needed, but not hovering over you. My wife and I lived and worked in Germany for 12 years, and would regularly scoot over to the Strasbourg area of France for lunch or dinner. Our meal at L'Auberge brought us back to those days and many wonderful memories.

Outstanding food. Creative
Outstanding food. Creative and very tasty. Service was promt, friendly and just great.
We had dined there once before, in years past and it was just as fine this time.

What a great find! We wanted a romantic B&B for our anniversary, and were completely stunned by the food!
Fresh, local ingredients plus an amazing blend of flavors made this a truly great dinner. We have dined at other, more expensive, Inns in the northern Virginia area, and this was easily on par with the best of them.

This place is amazing from the cocktails to the dessert. Very pricey and small portions but extremely high quality of food, presentation, and service. Very memorable.

I always go here for special occasions and it NEVER displeases. The creative fare is a delight to experience. And although I may not cherish EVERY dish, the overall experience is always a treat. They have a wonderful wine list and drink selection. If I stayed at the B&B there I would probably be more adventurous. The wait staff is exceptional; attentive and engaging. Overall a truly enjoyable dining experience!!!

Never a disappointment. Original food and quaint setting.

Exquisite and priced accordingly
Quiet dining in the countryside. You have your choice of 3 or 5 courses. My wife and I had the 5 course dinner. This is French style and the plates are small. 2 dinners with a bottle of wine and tip was $360. Everything is fresh from the farm or obtained from other local farms, except fish. It was spectacular and very unique flavors created by the chef. Plan on dining for about 3 hours. You won't regret it. Better than anyplace we've dined in DC.

Our stay took us back to the early years of our marriage spent in Europe. The artwork, the architecture, the food, the feel of this lovely space and the pace of life there put us in a romantic frame of mind. The quiet and privacy allowed us ample time to reminisce and chat. Dinner was beyond our expectations and each dish was beautifully composed and presented. Staff was always nearby and responded promptly and cheerfully.
In short, a beautiful environment. In a word-escape!

Great Service, Food
My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary at L'Auberge Provencale. The service and food were great. My wife is a vegetarian and even though the restaurant had a vegetarian option, it included squash which she doesn't like. The chef had no problem coming up with an amazing replacement. My pork loin and all the food was just the right amount and tasted perfect. It was a great evening out. Thanks.

The three-course menu (as opposed to the 5-course) came with small portions for the large price. Great bread. Another plus was the number and quality of half bottles of wine.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time at L'Auberge, it has been on my list "to dos" for some time. Finally I had the chance to stop in on my way back from a trip to Pennsylvania. It is certainly in my plans to return and spend more time this year.

Stayed at their Inn for a very pleasant three day getaway. Dinner was truly exceptional and the daily breakfast was the best I have ever enjoyed, anywhere.

It was great for my first wedding anniversary with my wife. She and I love to eat good food and the chef's tasting menu was right up our alley.

A Bit of Provence in Virginia
How we weren't aware of L'Auberge Provencale in our 20+ years in the Washington area, I'll never know. It's a beautiful drive from DC in the Virginia countryside, but the dining experience would be worth a much more arduous drive. The service is impeccable, the food classic Southern French yet imaginative, and with the emphasis on using local produce the taste and freshness of the food is unparalleled. On top of that, there is an exceptional wine list, about which the proprietors can provide invaluable background and advice.
Staying at the B&B attached to the restaurant, we had such a wonderful dining experience the first evening we were there that we decided to repeat the second night. We look forward to returning many times.

Well worth the trek
We loved the aestheically beautiful restaurant to celebrate a hard-faught sixtieth birthday and the first bout with a fatal cancer. The staff and management were celebratory and hospitable, making the event quite special for us. The mininturized food was superb -- every taste a pleasurable experience -- and worth the two hour trip each way in the driving rain from Washington, DC for this special occasion. But I doubt that we will ever be able to either expend that much money and energy to make the way out to White Post again.

Very good experience, but
Very good experience, but not excellent. Therefore, not worth the very expensive tab. Wines by the glass very overpriced.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten at L'auberge Provencale many times over the years. It is outstanding in all respects - always an enjoyable experience. We would recommend this inn to anyone who appreciates fine dining in a lovely setting.

L'Auberge Provencal is a Real Gem
Our son treated us to a lovely dinner at L'Auberge Provencale and it was absolutely wonderful. The Inn is beautifully appointed in French Country decor and the gardens and grounds are outstanding. We enjoyed the best of dinners; the presentation of each course was truly exceptional; the wine list was fantastic with countless selections; and the staff was attentive and personable. We honestly can't think of any way in which to improve the experience. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at L'Auberge Provencal for one night to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely dinner at the Open Table, along with breakfast the next morning. I can't say enough great things about the food, service and ambience. I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking an exquisite dinner and get-away experience. The chef is awesome!

Awesome Dinner W/ Superb Pairings
My husband and I celebrated a delayed 23rd wedding anniversary. We had great food, excellent pairings and A-one service. I highly recommend the place and stay over if you can so you can just continue to bask in the glow of a great dinner. Wish the Inn had a room for the nights we wanted but don't let that stop you!

Great Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We made the reservations on line. Within 15 minutes of completing the online reservation, the restaurant called and asked if we had any food allergies or requests. Wow!!!
When we arrived, we were seated in the yellow room. There were other couples there. All were celebrating their anniversaries also. We got a printed menu with the title "Happy 40th Anniversary " on top. Everything was perfect. Thanks.

What a wonderful experience and the food exceeded our expectations which were set high.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
The atmosphere at the restaurant was very relaxed,as you were welcomed with the allure of a warm fireplace and an entourage of friendly staff. The food was delicious, exquisite and expertly prepared. I opted for the four course dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the flavors of each dish. Overall, great experience at L'Auberge and am recommending that all my friends visit their restaurant and B & B in the near future!

Absolutely the best anniversary
Absolutely the best anniversary dinner my wife and I had. She said this was the best anniversary celebration we have had. I give my highest recommendation!

Top-of-the-line French restaurant
Great place for a romantic dinner, either by itself or as part of a stay at the bed-and-breakfast. 3 or 4 course dinner, with various intermezzos as well. Very good overall.
