Private Dining

L'Auberge Chez Francois



Maximum Capacity: 100



Maximum Capacity: 100

Opened in Washington in 1954 and relocated to Great Falls, Virginia in 1976, L'Auberge Chez François offers guests a sense of Old World tradition: courtly service, cozy environment and delicious food prepared with a classical French sensibility. With three dining rooms, a Garden Terrace, and a new casual Brasserie, guests are treated to memories of the original restaurant downtown, decorated with antiques from Alsace, including several Grandfather clocks, oil paintings, chandeliers made from old grapevines, hand-painted china and artfully decorated tablecloths. A favorite of locals as well as international travelers for over 60 years, L'Auberge Chez François can customize your event to match whatever the occasion. Chef Jacques also will share his passion for classic and contemporary French cuisine by teaching expert cooking techniques and tricks of the trade at private entertaining cooking demonstrations, with wine pairings. Bon Appetit et Merci Beaucoup!

Private Dining Options

Garden Room

65 Standing | 40 Seated

This bright room enhanced by an abundance of natural light streaming in from stained-glass and "walls" of windows, is perfect for afternoon weddings, showers and just any-occasion private luncheons. A favorite for area private annual appreciation luncheons, this room is also ideal for graduation celebrations as well as those milestone life events- anniversary celebrations and "special" birthdays.

La Grande Tente

75 Standing | 50 Seated

With its pastoral views, manicured gardens and peaceful fountains, La Grande Tente at L'Auberge Chez François is a desirable setting for outdoor wedding ceremonies, receptions and seated meals. La Grande Tente is an ideal location for intimate weddings, corporate cocktail parties and any other occasion, when you just want to escape from all the daily distractions of living in a metropolitan area.

Rooster Room

50 Standing | 30 Seated

Welcome to our premier private dining room, accommodating parties that range in size from 25 to 40 guests. In addition to the welcoming fireplace, the room is flooded with natural light until sunset, when you are then treated to a spotlight-lit meadow and organic garden. This room lends itself to audio-visual and power point presentation style dinners, ideal for guest lectures hosted by pharmaceutical companies, financial seminars, recognition dinners and holiday celebrations.

Mural Room

25 Standing | 10 Seated

Part of the original restaurant, this room was designed for smaller corporate dinners, bridal luncheons and birthday parties. This room has been lovingly decorated with hand painted murals, antique clock, classic paintings and collector china brought back from one of Mr. François' many Alsatian "buying" trips. With windows overlooking the Garden Room, outside meadow and a unique fireplace, you will have a sense of being part of the hustle-bustle of the restaurant, but in your own "cozy" room.

Jacques' Brasserie at L'Auberge

40 Standing | 30 Seated

The latest addition to L'Auberge Chez François, Jacques' Brasserie offers a casual setting for cocktail parties, private dinners or even a special occasion luncheon. Coupled with the new "Jacques' Bar Rouge" and expanded outdoor patio, transport yourself and your guests to "Alsace". Decorated with a mix of "old and new", you can be assured that an event held in this "Vinstub-style" venue will be enjoyed and remembered by all!
