As always, we had a marvelous experience. Our waiter (server? wait person? administrative food assistant? - l don't know the correct term) was personable, the food was superb. The prices are slowly increasing of course but the quality remained the same. We will try to continue to support their business.
Andrew was our waiter and did an excellent job which made our dining experience wonderful.
Great ambiance and excellent food
Great as usually. Beautiful decor, great service and once again great food.
A wonderful restaurant that never fails to deliver/exceed excellence in all categories.
Always a wonderful meal, service and ambience.
It was a pleasure to dine here and celebrate my son’s birthday. Lovely ambiance, food, service, etc. Nice extra touches too.
A great place for a special occasion. This was a surprise on our 50th anniversary for my wife and everyone was seated at the table when we arrived. The waiter kept insisting there was no hurry and we could stay as long as we wanted. He was knowledgeable about everything on the menu, including which appetizers and desserts would travel best, so we could share one at the restaurant and take one home to have later. L'Auberge Chez Francois is highly recommended to anyone celebrating any sort of special time that needs a festive presentation.
Excellent! We are in the process of making reservations for October and have made a request to discuss a private event for 60 people in May, 2022.
We enjoyed our anniversary and the very delicious food. we also appreciate the outside seating option! Thank you!
This was our first time there since covid has started . The menu is shorter but the food is still as delicious. We were outside on the patio properly spaced and the waiters were all wearing masks. We even got food to go for our daughter and son in law and they said it was amazing as well. Julio our waiter was amazing. Definitely will be going back.
Would like to see more vegan/vegetarian options.
I had the chocolate tart and the whipped cream was messily applied. It was first put on one side of the plate, scraped off and then put on the other side. It looked messy.
I would have liked the server to place the silverware on the table for the dessert rather than laying them there. I also think all the utensils should have been in the same order.
Despite that, the food was excellent and the ambience great. Really liked the outdoor dining - maybe even better than indoors where I could enjoy the garden. The birthday dessert was really a nice treat.
Celebrated our pandemic-related 50th anniversary a year late. The room overlooking the patio was light-filled, the tables nicely spaced. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and professional. There’s nothing stuffy or forced - a very welcoming atmosphere. It’s heartening to know that places like this still exist. Prices for the food are reasonable given the quality and ambiance. The wine list runs high. Check out the wines in advance of your visit as there are some excellent values among the many listed.
Excellent food, excellent service. You need to make an afternoon of lunch.
Fine dining experience. The service, personal attention, food, and overall experience is very pleasant and memorable.
Friends gathering after many months apart for a birthday had a lively evening with great service. I had forgotten about the price fixe menu— so the party was a bargain, too! My husband had a great birthday and even received two desserts! He was very happy. I was thrilled the Dover sole was as great as I remembered.
Great outdoor dining area, and the food was excellent.
We have very fond memories of L'Auberge since we went there back in 1979 as our first big meal when we moved to DC. We went there 20+ years in a row for our anniversary and after many years away we decided to go for our 45th since we wer intrigued by the new outdoor seating. Everyone was delightful and the setting is beautiful. The menu hasn't changed which is fine but the cost is high and the food was good but not incredible. The sole was slightly dry and the parmesan crusted halibut was so think with cheese is took away from the halibut which is a very delicate fish. The sommelier however was delightful and recommended a great wine
Always a wonderful experience. Great service and food and wine were delicious. Our go to place for any special occasion.
Chez Francois is wonderful. My husband and I always enjoy our dining experience. Our waiter Mahommed was wonderful. We Love the food and the very friendly staff.
An amazing experience. It was dining the way dining should happen.
L'Auberge Chez Francois has consistently provided excellent food, beautifully presented, in a quality setting to our family for more than a decade now. The variety on the menu has diminished slightly (presumable due to COVID-19), but the food is superlative.
First time enjoying brunch under the outdoor tent. It was wonderful! Looking for another excuse to do it again.
We have dined at L'Auberge Chez Francpis on several occasions and the food was superb as always. The ambience of the outdoor terrace at luncheon was perfect and even though their service is always excellent our server, David, was especially outstanding.
Been going here since the late 1980's. Superb. Full stop.
Perfect anniversary celebration
Just an amazing dining experience. The food was superb, the ambience great, the service perfection. Best meal I have had in years.
Delightful place for our anniversary dinner. Fixed price menu with numerous options made for a interesting and delicious experience. We look forward to returning soon.
Ate on the patio. Beautiful atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food and drink.
As always, this is my place for special occasions and also just having lunch with friends. I've never been disappointed. The food is above all wonderful and you certainly get enough choices and variety in the Prix Fix menu. The service is impeccable....they time the courses to come out at the right moment and are always steaming hot - so you know they are paying attention to your table. And the best treat is the Gran Marnie souffle as dessert. The restaurant has paid particular attention to separating the tables well beyond the 6 feet whether inside dining or out - so no worries. Can't wait for a return visit.
This is an absolute gem. Lovely French country style restaurant with several rooms and a large outdoor seating area. They grow many vegetables on the premises. We love tomato season! The food is fabulous and the service is top notch. The prices aren't too high for this level of quality and quantity. We've been coming here for years and even brought our kids when they were young (there's a kids menu and they were always treated well).
A home of fine traditional Alsatian/French cuisine in a distant Northern Virginia suburb of Washington. I'm not sure there are any Parisian restaurants left offering this old-fashioned style of cooking at this quality level, though there are still some in the French provinces. If I had to find a fault, it would be the expectation that we eat our salads with dinner forks (!); otherwise, the service was discreet but friendly in the American style, without being pseudo-intimate. Adequate wine list for these just-post-pandemic times, but we may hope it will be expanded when conditions permit.
The entire experience at L’Auberge is fabulous. The service is impeccable, the food is divine. The tables are spaced far apart so you have wonderful privacy. Always a great restaurant!
Lovely experience in a lovely location. Food and service were exceptional. Felt covid precautions were appropriate with all staff masked. Looking forward to our next visit.
Amazing culinary experience!
The temperature was perfect for eating outside under the tent. Service was great and food was wonderful, as usual
fabulous outdoor dining with excellent food , service and ambiance
Absolutely fantastic! Incredible service, superb food, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
