Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez Francois
Chef Jacques Haeringer
Sandra, who served us, was outstanding!
Excellent in every way!
We have been coming to L’auberge Chez Francois since the late 1970s. More often than not, we have lived at least 3 hours from Great Falls; but we always try to travel down your way at least once a year. As always, our visits have been way above superlative. This was our very first visit to the brasserie and could not have been happier.
Noticing your participation in Tauck river cruises, we look forward to any 2020 dates. We have decided to be there too.
Again, merci bien. An evening exordinaire.
Jacques is always a great experience. It was particularly nice on a Sunday night where it was more quiet than usual. Food, service, and ambiance were as good as always.
Another perfect evening at Jacques'. The service and food are always impeccable, never rushed and always gracious. We're regulars.
It's always a pleasure to come to this place. We love it. It was our 5th time (french people living in DC)
Danny and his Brasserie team do an outstanding job!! Thank you!!
We all love our visit to Jacques Brasserie.
Everyone was friendly and professional -and enjoyed the relaxed non-rush atmosphere.
We will certainly be coming back agaain.
Thank you very much
Always a treat. Will return soon. Proud of my Alsatian heritage, I enjoy the pleasurable taste of my
This is a 5-star restaurant all round! Delicious food, great setting, and superb service.
Superb brunch! Love the new expansion of their outdoor patio. What a beautiful setting.
Always great. Lots of kids running around patio today - not bad kids just noise and running around detracted from the peaceful ambience you normally get on the outside patio.
Still a great experience.
Simply wonderful. Gorgeous setting for outside dining. Very French. Everything is delicious and made with love. Staff are outstanding.
The usual excellent food for value( crowded, noisy, but it was a Saturday night. Service missed a beat on dessert menus/ordering, but it was busy and apologies accepted.
We had dinner recently to celebrate a birthday at Jacques' Brasserie in Great Falls. The setting is lovely, especially the intimate brasserie seating and pleasant outdoor area, though the high temps and humidity kept us indoors on this visit. Service was professional and courteous, without being intrusive. L'Auberge and its Brasserie focus on locally sourced ingredients, with this season's sweet tomatoes the offering du jour. I had the tomato soup that was rich, velvety, and filled with flavor without the need for a cream base. My husband added chunks of fresh tomatoes grown on L'Auberge's property to his garden salad. My rainbow trout was served in perfectly prepared filets accompanied by vegetables braised to perfection. My husband's chicken dish was also a hit. Desserts included one of the Brasserie's signature soufflés and a seasonal tarte aux pommes. We dined early, which proved to be advantageous as the noise volume increased as the table filled to the point where we had to join the rest of the throng in shouting across the table to be heard. It was definitely a fine place to celebrate the occasion.
Wonderful evening, as always, on the patio.
Lovely! Outdoor on a perfect day, great waiter, great food, casual setting. Loved it!
The new outdoor patio at the Brasserie is beautiful!
It's our neighborhood restaurant and our favorite. Now there are more options for dining, from very relaxed to more formal. Love the changes outside on the patio and can't get any fresher than the robust garden.
You would have to be a fool to pick the noisy, overpriced, overcrowded and overvalued chain restaurants in Reston Town Center when you have this jewel of a restaurant with an unbeatable location, amazing food, top notch wine list and the most competent and friendly wait staff in the region. And all at the same or better price than most of the Reston Town Center.
Great place for a charming atmosphere and excellent food. Excellent find in country setting.
The quality of life has gone up another notch or more since Jacques' Brasserie came along a few years ago. We have a consistently excellent Parisian experience at our doorstep. The food is superb -- don't think of missing Papa's Bouillabaisse -- the service professional and welcoming; the dining room warm and cheery; and the grounds lovely. Indeed the whole setting is full of charm.
There was a customer smoking in the parking lot close to our table. That was annoying.
The curcieture appetizer should have been served with toast. It was not. Waiter should have brought bread with the curcieture. He did not.
Enjoyed a fantastic meal, as usual, on the patio. The food, service, and weather were all fantastic!
We have been to Jacques about ten times and it never fails. Food is great. Knowledgeable servers and wonderful drinks/wine. Creative and well prepared French bistro cooking. We will be back many times to come
Too crowded but excellent
Had a great birthday dinner here. Ordered the Roquefort salad, chicken breast, and plum tart. All were delicious. My husband loved his salmon and onion soup. I enjoyed it as much as a dinner upstairs at Le Auberge Chez Francois, although it is a much more casual experience of course.
It will become our tradition to delicious dining out in the peaceful wonderful garden atmosphere.
Great location for birthday lunch Excellent food, service and ambiance Love the new awning over patio
Thanks for the birthday pavlova
The ambience on the patio in the evening is wonderful!
We love Jacques' and this was the perfect ending to our weekend. Jacques' is very special to us. My husband had a birthday this past weekend. We go a lot to Jacques especially for brunch but today we opted for a late lunch. I started with the French onion soup which was wonderful. Very bold broth. I also had one of my favorite things in life, the roquefort tart. I got the special vegetable of the day which was different and I really enjoyed it - the corn casserole which was baked with cheese. I got a side of the vegetables (carrots, potatoes and green beans), all fresh. Beautiful vegetables. My husband got the seafood pasta and ended with the raspberry soufflé. I was happy they sent over a dessert for his birthday as well. The meringue over ice cream is AMAZING! I love when someone has a birthday so I can have some. We love this restaurant.
Brasserie is quiet, elegant, and romantic!
Great French bistro food in a relaxed and casual setting on an outdoor patio. This is the more relaxed version of the white tablecloth Auberge upstairs with food just as well prepared. Great wine list
Another wonderful dinner on the patio. Both the food and the weather were great! Enjoyed the appetizers, especially the tomato salad, the seafood, and the souffles. It's great for quiet conversation.
It was a very busy Friday night with a big party outside. Service was not as attentive as we have come to appreciate. We had to inquire about our wine order which was not brought to us and had to ask for our bill which took a long time to come. Food was delicious.
As always, we enjoyed the amazing food, great wine and especially our gracious, friendly hosts from the maitre’ de, our waiter, the support staff and Sommelier. The Brasserie feels like our home away from home
Food was the same as upstairs, excellent. Plus, you could have a smaller meal because it was ala carte. However, the rathskeller decor and close proximity of the tables inside made it noisy and not very private. We had some folks at the next table who compensated by talking loudly and abrasively, which detracted from our dinner. So I would only use the covered patio, weather permitting, if you go there.
The service was generally good, but a bit slow and confused at times. However, we prenotified that this was a special occasion but there was no acknowlegement at any time when we were there.
The restaurant staff, service, ambiance and food are just amazing! You truly feel you stepped into a French Countryside Restaurant. A Special Treat and cannot wait to return for another Wonderful Experience!!
