Been here several times, usually each course is suberb. This time i actually dodnt care for one, the salmon, and not impressed by the another, lamb.. I also was ill fpr 24 hrs after eating..while i cant say it was food caused for sure...it just added tp a less than stellar meal.
Service was also below what I normally have experienced there. they seemed shorthanded.

Perfection. My husband and I are blown away every time we eat at LB. We had the tasting menu for pre-valentines and it was spectacular. Every course introduced and paired perfectly with a wine. Plenty of food but not overly full - again it was exactly what you want in a romantic evening for two. I love ❤️ this place. It is close enough to DC to make an evening of it - or just stay at the inn for the night. We have done both, but prefer to stay overnight and enjoy the wine paring. Lovely staff and scenery- picturesque.

We got married at L'Auberge, so we try to go back as much as possible, either on our anniversary or New Years. This year we brought friends who had never been. I think we may make it our new New Years Eve place! Food was incredible.

Four of us felt pampered at the Inn and the Restaurant on Christmas Eve. It was the most luxuriously relaxed atmosphere. No rushing you out the door here. Whoever reviewed below saying they want more color or fro-fro is crazy. The new decor is stylish, chic, and clean. Space between and among the tables. Conversations were not able to be overheard. Lots of windows and views of the mountains. I loved the Escher-like restroom flooring! Yes, they wait (as they should) for everyone at your table to complete their course, before serving the next to all others at table. Miles, our excellent server, was friendly and efficient. Every course was beautifully plated, flavors were unusual but matched and nothing overpowered the other - blending naturally and not so self-consciously as some chefs are prone to do. If you want a place to breeze in, eat without smelling (the roses) or chewing, and breeze out again - go somewhere else. On the other hand, if you want a special night out, go to L'Auberge Provencale. I recommend staying at the Inn as well, so you don't have to drive back home. With your room at your doorstep, you simply open the door, light up the wood fireplace in your room, and sink into the comfortable arm chair...reminiscing about the meal and wine you just enjoyed...and if you need ANYTHING, the Inn's major domo, "Bentley" is at your service...there's a reason the Inn is included in the Select Registry book...ah....

We were celebrating our sons 16th birthday and we each choose the 5 course meal. Each selection was delicious and quite beautiful! The beets and lobster courses were our favorite out of the five courses. We loved how the food was presented and took pictures to share with friends. The service was excellent.

L'auberage has been a special place for us for many years. Along with special personal occasions, such as wedding anniversaries, this has been where we have taken each of our four daughters for her twenty-first birthday (the oldest is now 42). In all that time the quality of the food and the service has continued to be exemplary, along with the country ambiance. It has always been worth the hour's drive it takes to get there. We have never stayed at the Inn there. Perhaps for our 50th Anniversary.

We all had the Chef's Tasting Menu on Thanksgiving day. It was absolutely delicious, and the service was impeccable. We had an extremely enjoyable time there, in a most beautiful setting. The icing on the cake (so to speak) were the turkey leftover sandwiches, complete with dressing and cranberry sauce, which they prepared for us to take home with us. Although we didn't try it, they now have a pub opened for drinks or lighter meals. I look forward to going their with a friend for lunch.

Excellent but seemed a little off their game. We visit once or twice a year and absolutely love it. They were just a bit off their usual excellent levels. Service was a tad slower. Cauliflower volute a touch salty. My plate seemed a bit on the cool side. Overall, still excellent and we will surely be back.

Again, beyond excellent. Attended a wine pairing brunch with Virginias 2 best wineries--Linden and RdV. Owner Celeste and Christian are the perfect host and sommelier. The food dishes created by the chef and staff were creative, delicious and paired perfectly with the wines. I continue to feel that this is really one of the best restaurants in Virginia and the Washington area run by the most pleasant people. Am anxious to try the new, more casual bar area with lighter fair. Thanks for another lovely event.

Came for my wife's 50th birthday. The service was outstanding and the decor and ambiance were beautiful. The food was very good overall but one of the tasting menu items was not to our liking (the duck breast was cooked rare). The other items were beautifully presented and delicious. Overall a very good meal but I would have felt better about it if it wasn't quite as expensive.

I am not fond of staff speaking in pl 1st person i.e. "And what have we decided?" "would we like to see the desert menu?" etc. Really? You are you, and we are we (the customers), and it's presumptious for you to insert yourself into my dining party. Or speak to us as if you are the playground monitor. This is not a deal breaker, but our group's personal preference.
There is nothing soft about the decor, to absorb sound. But the food was excellent so we will be back

I loved the energy and passion of the sommelier. His selections were perfect matches, complementing my 5 courses. The food was good, however outside of the soup all of my dishes were served lukewarm. I did not say anything until it came to the steak. Steak is not something I enjoy on the cool side. The waitress actually had the gall to say it was because I ordered the steak medium rare. Well, then why is everything on my plate the same temperature? The mushrooms, the mashed potatoes, the sauce? She walked away and when I called her back to point out everything was the same temperature, she became overtly irritated. But my food has been “cool” all evening and this is the first time I’ve troubled you to take it back. No, I didn’t say that. No she did not offer an apology on behalf of the kitchen, but she did take it back to warm up. And then stayed away the rest of the evening. Perhaps she should have had the night off or shouldn’t be in service to begin with. Prior to this final course, she brought the dessert menu and set the table as though we were having dessert. Not a big deal, but her attitude - especially later, over my lukewarm meal was off putting. The 3 stars are for overall service - the sommelier and another guy who frequented the table also waited on us, otherwise I’d have to lower it. I will not be back, nor would I recommend this restaurant. Food was good, but not worth the overall experience.

I've been there many times over the years. The service was atrocious! No one came to identify as our server. We sat for 15 min. then I had to ask them to at least take a wine order. Then ask for some bread (after having sat for 30 min.) then ask for some butter to go along with the bread, etc. For the cost, one expects top notch service. Also, they made no mention of the celebration of my daughter's 40th birthday, which I had indicated as a special occasion. I was extremely disappointed.

My wife and I went here for an anniversary dinner on way to a different bed and breakfast. The meal was wonderful -- great appetizers and entrees. The menu is diverse but doesn't overwhelm you with choices. The service was great and the setting (out in the Virginia countryside) is great for a special occasion. We didn't stay at the Inn but many diners do -- it looks very nice.

 (Orlando)·Dined on September 7, 2017

We had a disappointing experience with the restaurant, visited after a 7 and ½ hour drive. The first of three difficulties was encountered in trying to enter the restaurant. An archway sign indicates to go to the front of the house to enter. Once inside, there was no one there to greet us. We noticed and rang a “service bell” on the side and someone then promptly came to seat us. Effective, but awkward.
Second, the wine list is extensive, but unnecessarily expensive. We were arriving from Charleston, SC, a food and wine mecca. We ate at four outstanding restaurants and had wine on each occasion. Wines there were priced at 2 to 2.5 times typical retail. Almost every wine on this restaurant’s list was 3 to even four times retail - It was usurious.
Finally, the menu. If you check on-line, you learn that the meals are basically on a Prefix menu. On-line it describes the option to pay $88 for four courses – 2 apps, 1 main (fish or meat), and a desert. For $98 you can select five courses – 2 appetizers, 2 mains (a fish and a meat) and a desert. I decided to opt for five courses, because I often find French restaurant courses to lack bulk (I am a Viking, and if I can hold it in one hand, it ain’t enough). When the waitress arrived, seemed unaware of the 5-course option – it was not on the restaurant menu we received. I assumed that maybe it was uncommon, and she responded that might be the case. A few minutes later a second waitress stopped by and said that she had talked with the manager and that the 5-course option would only be available if all guests ordered the 5-course menu. In that case I said I would decline and meal, my dinner guests agreed and we decided to leave the restaurant. So, I have no comments on the food, and had I not just experienced so many great meals in Charleston, perhaps I would not have held the restaurant to the service level I did, but, it just wasn’t a pleasant experience.
