Great Ford. Great service.
Excellent service, impeccable food, as always. One of my very favorite restaurants!
My family loves this restaurant because they have been so important to my Dad, who always wants to go with any of his children who are available. We ALL celebrated his 100th birthday last January and the experience was superb. Food, service, ambiance were perfect. We will keep going to this wonderful place!
We came here when we got engaged last year. To celebrate our first anniversary we returned and had another fabulous memorable meal. Our server Fatima was awesome. The food was delicious and we were stuffed by the time dessert came. Overall a special time. We will not wait another year to return.
Food, service, and atmosphere were terrific. It’s a delicious splurge.
Fine wine, amazing dinner, and incredible service. Always the best in the region.
Amazing from start to finish! Lovely evening that started with drinks on the patio and ended with an amazing dinner and desserts. I forgot what a gem this restaurant is!
The wait staff and atmosphere are wonderful. We have been many times.
The food at L'Auberge was excellent. The bouillabaisse was excellently flavorful, the cottage cheese spread on garlic bread was creamy, and the main course of meats and lobster was perfectly cooked. I especially enjoy the friendly waiter and the little extras provided throughout the meal, such as passion fruit sorbet to cleanse the palate. I let them know in advance that we were celebrating our anniversary, and they gave us an excellent meringue better than any I've had before, over a lovely chocolate gelato. It is an extremely expensive meal, so I could not go regularly, but it was worth the money and a great experience.
Best restaurant in the area—great food, service—my #1 place to go for special occasion or any occasion
We love this place. We were there on a weekday evening and it was nice and quiet. Our server was very attentive--just what we expect. The food--well, just what we expected--very good/excellent. It's a great "special occasion" restaurant, and we have been coming here for a long time to celebrate our special occasions.
Wonderful setting for a special occasion.
This is our favorite place. It is great for any occasion or any season. I just would not want to drive there at night in the rain.
The service was excellent. We loved the chateaubriand - very few places to get that these days. They could do better w the cheese platter.
L’auberge is our anniversary tradition. We have never been disappointed. Wonderful place.
First time I have been to this, my favorite restaurant for lunch. Perfect! The only difference between lunch and dinner is chocolate truffles at the end and sorbet between one of the courses, a little quicker service between courses--oh, and the cost. Highly recommend!
Nice relaxing atmosphere, great service and overall terrific experience.
I have been a resident in the DC area for 40 years and have been to many fine dining restaurants in the Metro area. We have been to L'Auberge many times over the years and not once have we ever been disappointed. There are very few places that have maintained the high standards of excellence like those at L'Auberge. The quality of the food is always excellent and the service is professional and unassuming, never pretentious! The menu is largely unchanged over the years in large part to the fact that their selections are very popular, however they have added some seafood dishes which my wife and I selected since we have already experienced much of the menu. Both of these dishes were fabulous. I chose the Mussels as an appetizer because it is a newer addition to the menu and I found to be delicate but very flavorful. Highly recommended! I also selected the Chocolate Souffle as a desert which is an additional $8.50 and so worth it! There is really nothing on this menu you should be cautious about selecting. You simply can't go wrong here!
If you have never been to this restaurant you are missing a truly wonderful dining experience. Warm and welcoming atmosphere, not stuffy or pretentious, and probably the best overall value for fine dining you will find in the Washington area.
Wonderful experience, as always. My wife and I have been dining at Chez Francois for over 30 years and every single time is sublime. You cannot go wrong.
Akways a great experience. Patrick as always took fantastic care of us
Dinner at LAuberge Chez Francois makes any holiday more festive!
a late seating on sat evening food was average as it have been warmed over or left from earlier seatings. service was adequate for the prices i was disappointed.
This is a wonderful restaurant for a special night or anniversary celebration. Everything was perfect.
And old classic, as good as ever! A perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.
Excellent menu, great food and cheerful and responsive service. We are in the garden by request a d found it delightful.
My favorite restaurant of all time!! It's a little pricey, but for a special occasion.... worth every cent!
Food was excellent and the service was outstanding.
Excellent meal. It was a very pleasant 2 hours enjoying the nice ambiance and the excellent food. I had been in Paris just a few weeks before and the meal rivaled those that in Paris. Service was very good, attentive bu not pushy.
My favorite! 💕
It has been a while since we’ve been even though we live nearby. Took an out of town friend who really enjoyed their meal. My rack of lamb was terrific, but my wife’s scallops had to be sent back. While the plate was hot, the food had to warmed up. It was an easy fix, but still. Service was very good, but had some difficulty understanding the wait person. The restaurant didn’t seemed that busy for a Saturday night as we were at an 8:00 seating. That’s helped with the overall noise level. Overall the meal was fine, but not as special as we had remembered.
We drove 500 miles from Michigan for dinner at L'Auberge, a special place from our past. We were not disappointed. Every course was perfectly made.
The servers and staff at this restaurant were top-notch, as was the food. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
It’s as great as ever!
This is my all time favorite restaurant! Nothing beats it for special occasions, fabulous food, great service, lovely location, mood, etc. It is close to perfect for what it costs and you always get what you expect.
L’Auberge Chez Francois has long been a favorite spot for our family celebrations, though we had not visited for several years. We were pleased that the food and ambiance were as inviting as ever. We will return soon!
We had an early lunch to celebrate a milestone birthday. Everyone was incredibly nice. The weather was stunning and when we asked to eat outside we were given a choice of tables, including the gazebos. We chose a gazebo and had a wonderful meal with incredible service. Every table was placed in a way so that all the diners had space and privacy. The gardens were stunning and provided both a beautiful backdrop and a distraction for my children. Each coarse was brought out in a timely manner, artfully arranged and was just enough food without being too much. Everything was delicious and I look forward to a return visit.
It was a great dinner! The food was fresh and delicious. Our server was very accommodating as we had some custom requests that he was able to pull off. Highly recommend this restaurant.
There's a reason that L'Auberge has consistently been in the top Zagat rated spots in VA - the whole experience is excellent. It is pricey, but worth it for a special occasion - would highly recommend going at least once (but more likely, several times!)
Had a fabulous meal. Service was extremely personal. Had a table for 6 and we were each made to feel special. Assistance with wine was spot on. Dinner was for a special occasion, and L'Auberge did not disappoint!
This is a special restaurant which dis not disappoint in helping us celebrate a special occasion.
