L'Auberge Chez Francois Ratings and Reviews
Have always loved L’Auberge Chez François.
This time, however, it was not up to its usual standards. The service was very friendly, but very slow. The bouillabaisse was void of any saffron, so disappointing! My husband and I both had the twin filets; mine were good, his were tough.
We will probably go back for special occasions, but I’m sorry to say they let me down for the 1st time, going there for over 40 Years.
I’d heard this place was excellent and he did not disappoint. The ingredients were fresh and delicious, each dish perfectly seasoned and balanced and prepared to perfection. Stand outs were the escargot, a garlic shrimp and baby spinach salad (a special that night), the lobster in a light cream sauce, and the soufflé. Truly outstanding. The service was also excellent...genuinely friendly and helpful. Although this is an elegant high-end restaurant, it was unpretentious. You need not worry if your French isn’t up to par or you go for the wrong utensil. The staff clearly wants you to enjoy being there and eating delicious good. Will definitely be back, what a treat!
We had heard exceptional things about the restaurant and it did not disappoint. Exceptional food, exceptional service and exceptional ambiance. Could not have found a better place for our anniversary.
We will use this as our "Go To" restaurant when we want to impress out of town guests!
Wonderful gastronomic experience! Warm welcome, consistently attentive but never intrusive service, outstanding food, lovely dining room. For our anniversary they discreetly brought a delicious extra dessert (meringue with raspberry coulis) with candle, and unobtrusively added champagne and truffles when they discovered it was our 50th. Truly outstanding visit. Especially impressive to maintain such high standards after all these years.
I have been to Chez Francois on numerous occasions over the years and the food and service are always excellent. I brought my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday and she had never been to the restaurant before. She enjoyed it very much and would like to return in the future
This is our favorite restaurant and we have patronized it for many years. We recently moved and our travel time is now three hours, but it still remains our first choice to celebrate Birthdays and anniversaries. The only difficulty we encounter is selecting from the menu, as all entries are consistently excellent and the Pomme-Frites are absolutely the best we've ever encountered!
