L'Auberge is iconic. We've been coming here for over 40 years and the quality and service has not changed. You can count on the impeccable service, pacing, food and beverage choices, and lots of extra touches that tell you that you are in a special place. It is not just a great restaurant, but every time the experience takes us away on a mini-vacation in France for a couple of hours, and that is priceless.

Dinner at Bistro L'Hermitage was a lovely experience and a real treat. Both the food and service were outstanding. The food was served hot and cooked perfectly. Our waiter was literally a mind reader as he anticipated what we were looking for before we asked. The restaurant ambiance was lovely although the wall decor was a bit much. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will return soon. It is a bit expensive but to be expected with the quality of the food and service.

Everything was great, but the food and drinks are very expensive. It’s been awhile since we’ve dined here, and the prices definitely went up!
