Excellent all the way—oysters, tuna tartare, halibut,Dover sole, soufflés. Ate in garden which was very tranquil despite full tables. A fun time. Gracious staff.

Wonderful place to go for a special occasion.
Absolutely phenomenal food, service, and experience. Magnifique!
Food was spectacular but there was a loud, rowdy party next to us which made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation or hear the waiter.
Fabulous venue for a reunion lunch with my long-ago staff.
Oh, my goodness. It was wonderful! Service was very attentive, helpful, and excellent. The food was outstanding, including the wonderful meringue w. caramel, etc. Overall, I had a terrific dining experience. But then, I always do at L'Auberge! It's a good thing that I have to drive a distance as otherwise, I would be there weekly. Smile
We love L'Auberge Chez Francois. It is an absolutely wonderful place to celebrate a milestone ... and Sunday did not disappoint! We are pleased with the restaurant's attention to detail, spacing and safety during Covid and hope to come back soon!
The experience was great. I highly recommend this establishment. The food and deserts were delicious. My girlfriend had a great birthday, we will definitely be returning.
Very accommodating. Experience was fantastic. Food and ambiance all very impressive. Would recommend.
Food was excellent. Go hungry, you will receive a lot of enjoyable courses!
A wonderful meal - great food, great service... can't beat this place.
A wonderful experience. You step into a world of traditional European cuisine and service, and a very good value for the experience.
Chez Francois never fails. Superb food, a nice comfortable dining room when it’s too hot or cold to eat outside, and, best of all, warm, friendly, attentive, and prompt service. It is our go to place to celebrate special events. Last night we did two birthdays. And both special guests got a free serving of delicious birthday cake.
It was awesome - food was outstanding, service was excellent, and the garden seating outside had a great feel to it.
The level of excellence at L'Auberge Chez François never varies. The menu and selections and outstanding and the service is unparalleled. It has long been and continues to be our choice for the very best in French cuisine served in a beautiful setting. Merci beaucoup à tous.
This remains our favorite restaurant in the DC metropolitan area. We willingly fight the traffic on the Beltway and American Legion Bridge--which absolutely, positively must be replaced in the next five years (kudos to Gov. Hogan; boos to MontCo council members)--to get to Chez Francois! Outstanding service, wonderful cuisine, comfortable ambiance. It's always our "go to" place for fine dining.
We’ve been coming to L’Auberge Chez Francois once or twice every year to celebrate special occasions like our anniversary. We’re always pleased with the food, service, & ambience. I typically order the Chateaubriand which is heavenly & since my husband became vegan 5 years ago, he asks the kitchen to just “whip up” something for him. The veggie medley they did for him was quite lackluster & unimaginative. For the $$$$ we paid for the meal, we would have expected something more substantial.
I also noticed two dishes notably absent from the menu- the duck & rockfish. I sure hope they bring those dishes back at some point & offer better options for vegan/vegetarians. Other than those, I still look forward to coming to this place for special occasions.
The food and service are fantastic. We came for a special occasion and dined outdoors in an absolutely beautiful setting. We highly recommend it.
The most excellent lamb chops I have ever eaten. And my wife's halibut was also outstanding. We had what appeared to us to be a new-is waitress. She was very polite and competent but will need a bit more experience (e.g., she forgot to ask us if we wanted coffee or an after-dinner drink). But all-in-all, it was a great meal. And we will return!!!
Everything was excellent! This is one of our favorite places!!
Food was delicious. Service was attentive & wonderful.
The Chateau l"Auberge was the best we have had it year and the oysters! The waiter seemed a little inclined to go home but service was still good, just not the outstanding we have had in to past. We have been here for the past 11 years on our anniversary and highly recommend it.
Went for special anniversary dinner. The long drive for us and expense was well worth it. Exquisite food, including a pleasantly surprising amuse-bouche, was a party for the taste buds. We had the prixe-fix dinner. Very attentive and considerate service, especially regarding a food allergy.
Recognized our anniversary w/a desert. Thank you
My husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. The whole meal and service was amazing. The server gave us an extra complimentary dessert which was very nice. Every course along with the soup and sorbet palette cleanser was delicious. We hope to go back again and try the bistro. The ambiance was lovely as we sat outside for the evening. You definitely get what you pay for.
Terrific restaurant with terrific food and service.
Our waiter, Samee, was an excellent host! The food was fantastic!!
Best meal I have had for many years. Good menu selection, wonderful presentation and service. Expensive meal, but I can say that you actually get here what you pay for. Absolutely excellent in all aspects. In other words I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly!
Iced tea tasted metallic- not fresh
Plum tart for dessert looked and tasted leftover
Lobster salad delicious but ala carte $32
Everything was fine except for another patron seated near us who was carrying on a very loud phone conversation. After this had continued for about five minutes and no one from the restaurant intervened, my daughter very politely asked her to stop, whereupon my daughter was called several four letter words. It would have been nice if we had not been put in that position and restaurant management had taken care of it.
We had the Chateaubriand for two and it was properly cooked and very flavorful. The wine list was very extensive and reasonably price.
A wonderful night out. Lovely setting great food and the best service.
We are reminded of what a classic wonderful dinner is
Everything the food the service and the setting made for a special birthday
Great food, service, ambiance.
Excellent overall experience. Chef Jacques was terrific. The service was excellent. The ambience was great. We strongly recommend.

Definitely not worth the price. Service was very slow. Meat was too tough and terrible made drinks. Not going back nor do I recommend to anyone. Also the decor was so dated. Spiderwebs all around the lights.
Superb in all respects, as always. There is simply no place else that provides cuisine of this quality with service at this level. The best, bar none, in DC area.
