The iconic Chez François Auberge is at the very top of restaurants in the DC area. The cuisine is excellent and the menu very varied. Ambience is cozy and everyone sho works there strives to please. The owner Chef is on the premises. It is always a treat to dine at the Auberge.
L'Auberge Chez Francois is my "go to" for special occasions and they never disappoint! The food, of course, is absolutely exquisite, as is the choice of entrees, appetizers, side dishes, wines, and desserts.
However, for me, what truly sets L'Auberge head and shoulders above any other dining establishment is the overall gemütlich atmosphere, combined with impeccable staff service. Should you need anything at all, a server will be at your table in seconds; conversely, if you require an intimate conversation or moment with your table mate(s), the staff always provides complete privacy. In the words of Charles II of England, the staff "“is never in the way, and never out of the way.”
Thanks for yet another memorable meal and unforgettable evening!
This is the perfect place for a special day. Pre fixe dinner that was amazing, ambience is conducive to quiet conversation, we did not feel rushed and spacing from table to table was enough to make you feel safe.
Excellent special occasion restaurant.
Food, service and ambiance was exquisite
Will definitely be back
Consistently outstanding! NEVER a bad meal. Always great service. Beautiful presentation and a vast array of menu options.
Flawless service - gracious, polite, timely, informed.
Best beef medallion ever! Perfect cut, done to perfection, served with excellent sauces and very tasty sides.
Absolutely best Manhattan possible.
A most enjoyable evening with friends. Food and service were outstanding.
Best service and wonderful food! It was great coming here for our first anniversary!
Online menu differed from actual menu…should be updated…dessert selection use to be 8 or 9 options, now 4 or and upgrade to soufflé….need to bring back maybe two more choices…
I know Covid has affected many things, but expectations at this restaurant are so high…need to be some additional seasonal menu choices…
First time but won't be my last time!
Food and service was delightful and the souffle was to die for!
A fabulous restaurant for celebrations! Food is always excellent and the service is impeccable.
This is a quaint restaurant in a residential area. a little out of the way but worth it. The wait staff are some of most professional and competent I've seen. The food is absolutely fantastic, but you do certainly pay for it. We were not in a hurry, if you are you may need to mention it up front since our Saturday lunch was about 2 hours long.
The food is plentiful, so go hungry. Everything was prepared and presented with care. Chez Francois is the best place around for a special meal.
Food and service excellent.
A bit pricey, but a phenomenal meal - amongst the best Dover soles and lobsters we have ever had. The soufflé was to die for!!
Absolutely outstanding. One of our best meals ever.
Our favorite celebration place. everything. Always a special treat. The food is amazing everytime.
I greatly appreciate the staff's attention to detail along with the congenial atmosphere they create. An artistic dining experience without being stuffy or too self-conscious. Like enjoying dinner at your favorite uncle's house, if that uncle was a gourmet chef who lives in a spectacular house. Equally impressive is that they've managed to maintain this experience over so many years. It's at least as good now as it was 30+ years ago.
Food was delicious, quite abundant, and well worth the price. Service was impeccable.
Awesome food and service. Best on our area.
The best food ever! Delicious! Outstanding! Will be be back! Tatiana
Wonderful experience for our 8th anniversary. Great service and delicious food.
As always, the service was excellent, the food consistently good, and the surroundings in the Virginia countryside outstanding.
Food was good, service was exceptional, ambiance was very pleasant and intimate, chairs were extremely uncomfortable
Still hitting on all cylinders- staff, food quality, pacing. All spectacular.
We’ve never been disappointed here.
I ate there many times many years ago. The food is still as good as it always was and the service superior. They make you feel as if you’re part of the family.
As always, an outstanding experience. A family favorite for many years. Thank you.
Celebrated our 30th there last night. Service was excellent - Patrick, a very knowledgeable and outgoing server, kept on top all night.
Had kept a review from Tom Setsima of the Wash Post, and the Dover Sole was still an entree. Can't say enough about the presentation and taste. 5 stars - at least.
Chef Jacque made the rounds and stopped by to chat.
Chez Francois is one of our favorites and we return often.
The dinner menu selection provides a broad range of excellent varities to choose from.
We went for my Mother's birthday. It's perfect for special occasions. Prepared for a slow well-paced meal.
Dinner is PreFix. Does have vegetarian and gluten-free options. Most of the entrees had some shellfish in them.
Everything was done right. Thank you.
This a lovely, special occasion place like no other. For the last 20 years that I have been going the restaurant had been consistently outstanding.
Outstanding food, excellent service, and relaxing ambiance. Thank you for a wonderful evening and making my wife’s birthday dinner a memorable one.
Awesome special occasion restaurant. The staff is professional and helpful with food and wine. The food is exceptional. The fixed price menu vs ala carte is easy to understand.
Outstanding service and meal. Great menu choices and food was devine
If you want exceptional French cuisine, in a beautiful venue, with exceptional service, this is your place. They hit all marks in delivering a great experience. No matter what you pick on the menu - it will be excellent.
This was our first visit to L'Auberge Chez Francois, and it lived up to its sterling reputation. it's not a restaurant for bargain diners, but for the quality of the food and experience, it it well worth the cost. We will return!
Continues to be among the very best restaurants in the area! Food and outstanding service; each of the four of us had different entrees and all were superbly prepared and presented. Great, great traditional French food! Highly recommended!!
Even on a very busy evening they deliver the excellence for which they are known.
Very special New Year’s Eve dinner with colorful holiday decorations and excellent food and service. I first experienced L’Auberge Chez Francois to celebrate a high school prom in 1966 in the original site in DC and am still a loyal customer.
Out standing as usual, the Beef Wellington was superb. It is always a pleasure to dine at L'Auberge.
