Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Come join us for your Mother's day celebrations with a great Dinner menu and specialty cocktails.
Everything was lovely. Large spaces between tables. A view out the windows. Magnificent food. Very attentive service. Made a wonderful return to indoor dining now that we are vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. A great "special occasion" experience.
Perfect place for a special occasion whether it is lunch or dinner.
The food was excellent. The service was very good. We asked the waiter for three separate checks but we received one. We provided our credit cards and got the separate but equal bills. That was not what we asked for. Minor issue but I wanted to pointed out. Thanks.
Perfect special occasion dinner. We enjoyed our wonderful table, waiter, and the delicious food. The ambiance can't be beat. Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection. Looking forward to going again for the next celebration.
We celebrated our anniversary and our first post-COVID restaurant visit at L'Auberge. We couldn't have picked a better place. Everything was outstanding, the quality of food was over the top, and the service was professional and friendly. It was a great experience that we will do again sooner rather than later. Our compliments to the chef.
As always, the food and service was excellent. It's the perfect place for special occasions.
We have been going here for our special events for years and, again, they did not disappoint.
As always. Chez never disappoints!!! It’s always consistently wonderful,-from service to food to pleasant servers and NOW with social distant dining at its best! We dined in the garden! They have done a wonderful Job making this a Beautiful dining room with plenty of space between tables! We happened to be there on a night when the weather was gorgeous, but the tent with sturdy walls/flaps will be a great asset if it had been raining. I wish more restaurants would take Chez Francois lead in distance dining!
If you want to go to a truly special restaurant that is not only a local but national gem, L'Auberge Chez Fraincois is the place to go. It is our go-to place for special occasions and it never disappoints. We sat outside in their lovely outside setting and enjoyed the setting sun while tasting dish after dish of outstanding cuisine.
Spectacular in every way.
Now fully vaccinated and comfortable going in public (while still taking precautions) I had the chance to go to this amazing french auberge, I tried escargot for the first time. The ambiance was so warm and elegant. The staff was attentive and professional. I got to try veal! I also FINALLY had a souffle, grand marnier flavor. Lot of firsts here and so glad it was at a quality place that knows what they're doing. The food was divine, dinner was amazing and I'll definitely be going back for brunch sometime.
You know you're going to be getting an excellent meal and outstanding service when you dine at Chez Francois
First time back in over a year. We sat outside on the terrace on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Food was wonderful as always, service was impeccable, and all protocols for safety were being observed. It was delightful!
Chez Francois has the best French food that I have tasted in the United States! It rivals the best restaurants I've eaten at in France. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Delightful experience! The staff was amazing, the patio dining area was so relaxing, and the pre fix lunch was delicious. Would highly recommend for special occasions....or just because ;-)
Chez Francois never disappoints!! Great food and service. The very BEST!!
Another terrific meal at L'Auberge! We ate outside on the patio under the tent. Tables were spaced well and we were quite comfortable with the covid precautions. The food was outstanding, as usual. We had several dishes we've loved for years, including the wild mushroom crepe (anything with wild mushrooms and the tomato concasse is usually wonderful) and the incredible bouillabaisse (I could smell the saffron even though the casserole lid was on and I was wearing a mask!)! We also had the outstanding pan sauteed halibut with a beurre blanc sauce, which came with an assortment of perfectly prepared vegetables. And of course we had the plum tart for dessert. You can even indicate on the reservation whether it's a special occasion. Merci bien, L'Auberge!!
We brought a friend from out of town to one of our favorite spots. She loved it as we knew she would. Loved the service from Anna and the food was delicious. So glad to be back.
Marvelous time with superb food beautifully prepared and served. Excellent service.
Always a hit! Been going since 1983 and is always special. Thanks Jacque et al!!
Excellent food, fix price menu. Excellent, friendly service and staff
Delicious food and elegant service as always. Tables were spaced far apart and waiters were gloved and masked. We were very appreciative of their Covid safety precautions which they managed without sacrificing any of the atmosphere at all. A truly outstanding dining experience!
Attention paid to every little detail. Just a relaxing and totally amazing experience. This is my go-to place when I want that perfect dining experience. 😃
This is a special place for a special occasion. The food is grand.
Excellent service & food!
It was our first outing in a year, celebrating Easter with our family and our son in law's birthday. Service was superior and the good was excellent. We all had a wonderful time.
What a wonderful experience, worth every dollar spent.
Not a great value. Fixed price menu, with ridiculous entree prices setting the four courses. Underwhelmed. Follow-up: Owner reached out, and I thought he was very sincere in understanding the issues. I've elevated the overall rating to reflect that, which was very professional.
Always reliable classic French food in a classy setting with outstanding service.
Lobster was tough and dining room
Was crowded and noisy .
I won’t come there for a holiday again.
This place is a landmark for good reason. The food is superb and the service is outstanding. One of my all time favorite restaurants.
We have dined at this restaurant many times in the past. As always the food and service was first rate. My wife and daughter had the lobster, I had the filet mignon medallions both of which were superb. The outside seating area was especially well done with lots of space between tables.
Always perfect for a special occasion. Food and service as exceptional as ever.
There's a reason why Chez François has been in business for 50 years ... one of the best best restaurants in Northern VA.
Lovely experience! Great food, service, and surroundings. So glad it is open again!
I had an excellent dining experience here on Easter. From the time my sister and I arrived until the time we left, the service, the outdoor dining and every bite of food were top notch. We chose the four course pre fixe meal. It started with the amuse bouche. It was a delicious split pea soup with tiny bits of ham. Appetizers were generous in portion size. I had salmon three ways and my sister had a mixture of shrimp, scallops and tiny potatoes in a creamy sauce. Both were delicious. The salad was a mix of greens dressed in a light vinaigrette. Just ok. Sherbet between meals to cleanse the pallet, very refreshing. Entrees were another shrimp and scallop dish but this time it was sauteed and beef medallions that were tender and juicy. We both had enough for a snack the next day. Dessert included cheesecake and creme brulee. Absolutely delectable. An expensive meal but well worth it!
We have been enjoying the Auberge for over 30 years.
We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgivings, Christmas And New Year
Eves as well as bringing so many out of town visitors.
It is a very special spot.
However, we have on the last two occasions, felt the quality of the food has suffered.
On this last trip,my husband lobster was so tough it was not edible.
In all fairness, the waiter did offer to replace it but he did not want to wait.
Hopefully, this is just a bump and will not be a continuing problem.
We sincerely hope that they will pull themselves up to their previous standards.
We ate outside for Easter on the new stone terrace that l’auberge put in during their winter break this year. We have always loved l’auberge but since the pandemic have really appreciated having such a good restaurant set in such a nice setting to enjoy. And thus time didn’t disappoint as always
