Rerun visit with an out-of-town colleague. Food, as always, represents standard/ classic French cuisine accurately prepared and served. The Grand Narnier soufflé was perfect - golden on top moist in the middle and wonderful with creme anglais. The location at the Easter edge of Georgetown makes it convenient to hotels on the eastern side of the bridge over Rock Creek. All in - reliable. Finally the noise level is conducive to conversation and diners are not rushed.
Excellent and reliable. Wonderful food, great service and still a hidden gem in a sea of Georgetown restaurants that are often not as good or consistent. Perfect bistro food.
We wanted a special place to celebrate Valentine’s Day/our 3 year anniversary. We never had French cuisine before and decided to give La Chaumiere a try after reading the glowing reviews. The restaurant had a cozy atmosphere that was perfect for a romantic evening. The servers were nice and attentive to water refills. The food was outstanding. We had a delicious meal with decent sized portions. (Not the famously small portions fine dining is known for). Everything we ordered tasted wonderful. Our favorite was the dessert soufflé! I would highly recommend La achamiere to others!
The food was delicious and great location for Valentine’s Day. As well, I loved the aesthetic look of the place, super cute!
It has stayed strong while so many went out of business due to the high quality and service. Highly recommend it
The ambiance is beautiful, though we didn’t feel very welcoming. Also the food is average, I’ve been in franchise chain restaurants that have better flavor, for the price, the value is less than average.
Valentin dinner. Outstanding restaurant in every way. 5hats why we always go back.
Valentines Day date night. Excellent menu, service and ambiance. Our first visit and a real gem. It is expensive, but on a par with other quality restaurants. We’ll definitely return.
Love this place! So cozy and definitely a relaxing experience
Loved it! Going back soon!
Food, wine and service great!
Great food, great service, unforgettable time! One of my favorites!
WE love Chaumiere... the ambiance, the food, the service ..
Very pleasant lunch. The wine was excellent. The scallops were superior. The dessert, too.
My friend and I felt relaxed and we enjoyed our meal.
While the years have taken a bit of the "glow" off some things at this restaurant, for ambiance, it is still a winner. We had lunch on a cold, rainy, Monday ... the perfect time to head to La Chaumiere and their lovely fireplace! VERY low turnout for lunch service, but it was Monday, after all. My dining partner had the Caesar Salad -good, but average. He followed that with the Fricassee du Pecheur (fish stew), which he REALLY enjoyed. I had started with the Bisque de Homard (Lobster Bisque), and was disappointed. Basically all I could taste was the pepper in the dish. I followed with the entree of Boudin Blanc, which was still a winner from this traditional menu. Delicate little sausages with apple - a pleasure to eat. W had decided to split a Grand Marnier Souffle, and ended up disappointed. Unfortunately, the finished product was overly "eggy". Perhaps we should have ordered something else ....
Warm and inviting relaxed environment with waiters who dont pester but are available. Food was excellent though some items were cold, like soup and coffee, and needed to be sent back. Overall delicious and fun for special occasions.
Had the perfect corner table up front; thank you
It is one of two GOTO French restaurants in the city. I will always return to La Chaumiere
Our overall favorite French restaurant in DC. Dined there 2/9/19. Never disappoints. Veal chop and the red beet and goat cheese Napoleon from the dinner specials were great. The Dover sole was perfectly done. The atmosphere is cozy and charming and accurately reflect the restaurant's name. You can't go wrong for a special evening out.
We come here frequently and are never disappointed. The food was cooked to order and delicious.
Amazing Food, Great drinks, very professional staff, the inside id a bit dated but adds to the charm and history of the place. The Rack of lamb was cook perfect, we will be returning.
Dinner at La Chaumiere is always a wonderful experience but is especially memorable on a cold winter evening. The cozy, warm atmosphere is the result of far more than the gas fireplace at the center of the dining room and the friendly, professional service. Their famous quenelle is only one of a wide choice of flavorful, traditional French menu items. And their extensive, well-selected, well-priced wine list goes far beyond the excellent featured and house wines. For my wife and me, this Georgetown institution earns its reputation with every meal.
Always wonderful! best food and service in DC! Fantastic!
wonderful food and ambiance. Many thanks for giving us the table in front of the fire place.
Great restaurant for classic French favorite dishes. Best liver in town! And in the summer the best soft shell crabs.
Best French meal I’ve had in a decade. Especially loved the delicate and authentic quenelles de brochet. Thank you for a lovely dinner experience
Absolutely love this place! Noise was minimal from patrons and popular night for a Monday! I took my daughter and she loved it! Food ambiance and service were outstanding. We will be back again!
Until last Saturday this has long been our favorite restaurant in Washington. However, with an 8:30 reservation (because 8:00 wasn't available), we weren't seated until 9:00 and not served until almost 9:30. Unbelievably crowded and noisy. The food is consistently good, but by then most of us had pretty much lost our appetite. Won't be going back there any time soon, but no loss to them, as they are too popular for their (and our) own good!
Outstanding service, atmosphere and the food was superb. One if the best, if not the best restaurants I have been to in the DMV.
This is an old favorite, hadn't been there in w while. It's very cozy and comfortable for a winter dinner. The food was very good, as expected, especially their specialty Grandmarnier souffle. The tables are packed together, and the place was packed on a Friday night, so it was noisy, and conversation had to be shouted until it cleared out a bit. Overall, a nice experience, lovely that it hasn't changed and continues to have really good food and ambiance.
As always, it was outstanding. Never had a bad meal.
Great soufflés and wine list
A good friend and I celebrated her 81st birthday here last week, on a bitterly cold day, and enjoyed sitting by the cozy fireplace. We had a glass of champagne each, then moved on to salad and brains (for her) and quenelles de crochet for me, two things hard to find in DC. We shared a soufflé grand mariner for dessert. It was blissfully quiet. A wonderful, old-fashioned place with classic French cuisine.
Cozy French restaurant in Georgetown. Visiting DC from Maine. Great food. Waiter wasn't on top of our attention. Might be loud at busy times. Do give them a try
Everything was wonderful. Food, service, noise level. So glad la Chaumiere is still here!!
Have been coming to LaChaumiere for years. The food, service and ambience cannot be beat... all have been consistently outstanding over the years. Just wonderful!
We had our twin's birthday party with 12 people. It was wonderful from the food to the service to our location - upstairs. Highly recommend this restaurant!!
Except for our lovely waiter, all the restaurant staff was very rude and the food was mediocre. We waited for thirty minutes to get to our reserved table while there was an empty table open.
