Overall a good dining experience. The onion soup was somewhat bland. The waiter should let the customer know the prices of the specials. One entree was $40. Nice place.
Amazing as always. Even after 42 years in business they are still one of the best restaurants in town.
Fantastic, as always! Wonderful ambience and food.
Excellent restaurant, with classic French cuisine. Wine list a little high but wines are good.
I picked La Chaumiere for a romantic dinner, was really looking for great food and an old-Europe rustic feel. Found it at La Chaumiere, and along with a great waiter, we truly enjoyed our meal and experience. The restaurant was almost at capacity the entire Friday evening, but we never felt crowded or rushed, and always had attention of the staff without that feeling of hovering. It is not inexpensive, but we certainly got what we paid for.
Fully recommend La Chaumiere for romantic date night, or small groups of friends out for an elegant meal.
The food was underwhelming for the price. The mussels were under-done. The salmon was good but peppery which was not described in the menu as such.
This restaurant was delicious!
A great classic French restaurant with outstanding food, wine list, and service. I go there every time I am in DC. The quality of food and wine, the ambience, and the pleasant service have not changed in 10 years (and that is a good thing!).
Highly comfortable evening meal -- excellent service (including description of specials) amid large number of diners, like us, enjoying the meal.
La Chaumiere never fails to impress. The customer service is like family, the atmosphere is rustic French country, and the food is... well, amazing!
Came in from out of town and took my girlfriend on a date here. The maître d’ was, well, French. So no expectation of a warm reception, but not rude, either. We arrived during the height of the rush. The table was cozy and in an excellent location, though we had to wait a bit after our reservation time to be seated. The wait was worth it. Table setup was impeccable. Our waiter arrived promptly, the House Côte du Rhône was affordable but nice, and the food was superb. Despite the rush, wait staff was attentive, helpful, and extremely courteous. Overall, an enjoyable, warm dining experience, that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves a diverse French menu.
Excellent service, great food
La Chaumiere has a wonderful French food menu. The servers are very helpful with menu and wine recommendations. We are repeat customers and have had an outstanding experience each visit.
I've been coming to Washington DC several times a year for nearly 20 years. I would rate this as one of the top 5 restaurants in the region. The menu is great, the food is perfectly prepared and is served without long waits and the servers are knowledgeable and willing to really discuss the food with you. The wine list is (like all DC restaurants) is overpriced, but there are a few good reasonably priced selections. I am so glad to have found La Chaumiere and I intend to go back again and again. The baked mussels, the cornish hen and the desert souffle are outrageous!
We always have a pleasant evening at La Chaumiere. The food, service and ambiance is always excellent.
Loved the ambience of La Chaumiere, very French feeling, and the food was delicious.
Great restaurant! Every dish was delicious, but the Dover Sole was exceptional. Wonderful atmosphere and great service. We will definitely be back
We love it here! It is our second time while visiting our daughter. The food is fabulous! Fresh ingredients and delicious sauces. Our waiter was very helpful with wine choice. We plan to come back!
Very good food and wonderful fireplace--what we needed! The only thing was that our companions were charged for champagne, when they had requested prosecco. The (very nice) waiter may have told them that there was no prosecco, but they didn't understand this. They probably would have made another drink selection, if they had known.
We had a delightful dinner at La Chaumiere. The fireplace is so inviting; you feel like you are in a chalet in the Alps! The food was outstanding, especially the quenelle, which I haven't had since I was a little girl! Absolutely have to have the apple tart: Incroyable!
Will be returning for sure!
