Restaurants in Alsace traditionally have a formal main dining room as well as a casual dining room known locally as a weinstube or brasserie. At the brasserie, diners may enjoy traditional, hearty Alsatian dishes in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. These friendly establishments are immensely popular with Alsatians and visiting them is always the best part of my trips back to Alsace. I opened Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge Chez François to bring the tastes and comforts of the Alsatian brasserie to Great Falls.

    Delicious food, excellent service throughout the evening, and good friends made for a wonderful birthday. We highly recommend and will certainly return. Was it a little expensive? Yes. But an excellent value compared to what we'd expect to pay as lesser establishments. And a special thank you to our server, Elise...she made for an enjoyable evening. In fact, my wife commented that everything about her service was perfect. Thank you for a great birthday dinner.

    We were disappointed in the bread basket which had previously been outstanding with a great variety of breads. I was not thrilled with the seafood pasta as saffron is not my taste of choice. I thought the salad and soup were good but not outstanding. We have always hoped for a superior meal but last nights was not though the service was great.

    We celebrated our 55th anniversary with lunch in the country. Both my wife and I feel the Brasserie offers what may be the perfect dining experience. We prefer lunchtime because we're hesitant to drive at night; the trip there from Arlington is not complicated, and the 90 minutes we spent at the Brasserie was memorable. Thanks to the staff for their attention; thanks for the quality of the food and the presentation. I don't know how the experience could be improved.

    Our party of 4 made reservations only a few days out and were able to be seated in the outdoor area. After being greeted we were seated on time. The tented area was cozy, warm, and quite. We could see the decorations outside but did not participate in any indoor activities. Service was fantastic and I mean fantastic. Drinks before dinner were great. Food service was exceptional and we do need accommodations for a food allergy. Everything was explained and there was confusion on the chestnut dressing. Even though it was safe, the chef and staff prepared a new meal with a different side and made the evening perfect. There is nothing a fine dining restaurant should do for its customers and L'Auberge made our birthday celebration fabulous. Drinks, entrees, mains, and souffles came to the table in timely succession. I had the bouillabaisse and asked to switch wine and the head waiter brought out a spectacular glass from the region of Provence complementing the my meal. It was a great evening and I can't wait to go back!

    Our guest, when we got back home, admitted he had 2 shrimp and one scallop in the seafood pasta. His father 3 shrimp and 2 scallops. We didn’t know to say something until we were home.

    I was disappointed with my dinner experience tonight. I made a reservation over a week ago and specifically said that two of the four of us are vegetarian and asked about options. The response from who I spoke with was that "we will create something for you- no problem". I also saw a review online that said that a man brought his wife there for her birthday and they did not disappoint and created something vegetarian for her. My disappointment came from the fact that the waiter had no idea that I had requested this specifically and had spoken with two people who confirmed they would make something good for us. Our waiter said "yes, we can give you a plate of vegetables". Basically, we'll saute whatever is available and will put it on a plate for you. So one of us ended up eating salmon and the other got the vegetables. Yes, they were sauteed but really? That's all we get for $25? So many restaurants have amazing vegetarian options. And honestly, if you had said, sorry, we don't have much then our expectations would have been set. But based on my conversation with your staff and the online review, I expected something better. Our waiter was no help and had no idea what I was talking about. I've been to this restaurant many times over the years and over the past several years, I've changed to a vegetarian diet. No one has to accommodate this but then they need to tell people so we know what to expect. I hardly ever send emails like this but I'm disappointed. We brought friends and I fully expected to be "wowed" by a delicious meal but was not. If you can't accommodate vegetarians, please educate your staff and phone staff so they can advise patrons appropriately.

    As always we had a great time. I do need to mention the lobster salad is not as good as I remember. Perhaps it’s not the same salad. The one I remember and a small lobster, beautifully presented with the claws displayed and had the head and tail on the plate as well. The dressing was sweet. This salad had dressing all in the lettuce. It was just different and not quite an good as I remember. But everything else was superb. Thanks for a lovely time. See you again soon.
