L'Auberge Chez Francois
Best meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant - the luncheon Prix fixe meal at lunch.
This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had! The service was impeccable, the food delicious, and the ambiance just lovely. I would definitely recommend and look forward to the next time I can dine here!
Trip in a time machine back to where Old World food & service were lavished in abundance. Since moving away from Washington DC more than a decade ago, we had held a happy memory of this place in our hearts. On a cold damp Sunday in November it charmed us all over again with its warm welcome. The 6 course dinner did not overwhelm, but unfolded in easy stages designed to entertain as well as nourish. We were surrounded by happy people enjoying a special occasion rare in a hectic modern milieu.
Always impeccable service, food and ambiance. We will be back for sure! Especially appreciated the call in advance asking if our reservation for 8 was for a special occasion.
I had asked my meat pink but it was overcooked so we had to wait for a new order; somewhat disappointing for a restaurant of this class.
What a beautiful trip to France this was! Ohh my I adored this restaurant! It is everything french cuisine! I would come here more often but my wallet wouldn’t allow it! Still worth the celebration though! I love getting dressed up and treating myself!
Anniversary. Eduardo was wonderful!
We continue to love this place for date nights, special occasions, and anything in between. Consistent food/service/quality every single time.
We always enjoy L’Auberge Chez Francois. Beautiful restaurant.
My wife and I celebrated her birthday. As usual, both the food and the service were fantastic. The soufflé was the best dessert ever!
La Auberge remains the gem it’s been for oh so many years. Jacque has done his father proud and a great honor by the way he has carried on the family tradition.
Had a wonderful birthday celebration.
One of the best French restaurants in the DMV. We've been coming on and off for forty years. Great celebratory place. Excellent Alsace cuisine and perfect ambiance and service. Try the four course menu for lunch. A total bargain at $45 and includes a glass of wine
Welcoming staff, charming and cozy dining room with a wood burning fireplace, sea bass was perfectly cooked. Everyone especially loved the fennel soup and the pumpkin mousse cake. I thought the chairs were a bit uncomfortable, but nobody else thought so. Overall, a most pleasant dining experience.
Wonderful dining experience. Made our special family celebration even more more special. Thanks.
Great as always!! Thank you!!
Top 10 .. hard to beat. Only issue too many great dishes to chose from
This was our first trip back after many years, and we were wondering if it was still as good as we remembered. We shouldn't have worried- it is still our favorite special occasion place! Cozy ambience on a cold night, great food, excellent waitstaff- what's not to like. We only hope that we will be able to visit again without waiting so long between trips!
A lovely spot for our anniversary. The service is impeccable which can be hard to come by these days. Old school class. Great sommelier. Quintessential french in atmosphere. We were seated in front of a fireplace and given a special dessert.
An exceptional experience, as always! Attentive service, great ambiance, and outstanding food from start to finish.
We had a delightful lunch at L'Auberge. We enjoyed the Filet of Sole special which is always a treat. We experienced an example of the thoughtful service that is a hallmark of L'Auberge. One of our party quietly asked if the Amuse Bouche contained dairy as she is lactose intolerant. From then on, she was offered options if what she had ordered might contain dairy ingredients.
The food and service are always outstanding! The staff go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and enjoy your dining experience.
Went there for my wife’s recent promotion. Our meals were fantastic. I loved the desserts as well. Nice quiet atmosphere and the ride to get to the restaurant is scenic as well. Not a bad thing to say about the place. I recommend to anyone for a special occasion because it is a bit pricey but worth every penny.
Excellent evening out in every respect!!! We are now hoping to bring the family for a Christmas time outing.
The food was amazing. Always a great experience.
Terrific and special place. I have never been disappointed at L' Auberge Chez Francois. We always have a special experience with absolutely delicious food. Every course-- even the palette cleansers, were amazing. We were a table of six this time with plenty of high-end restaurant experience, and everyone at the table was wowed by the flavors of our food choices. The ambience is so fabulously old world and lovely that it makes the experience so much more than a good meal. It's not the place to go for "new age chef" avante garde flavor combos if that's what you're after, but the flavors at L' Auberge are wonderful, and the truly enjoyable experience goes beyond the food and drinks.
As always, our experience was lovely. The food and ambiance are always what we look forward to. The wait staff is superb.
Friends getting together ... one had never been, and one had not been here in ages. Decided we would definitely be back as great place to have a relaxing lunch and be able to catch up with friends while eating fabulous food and desserts!
Had a long time friend in from out of state. Wanted to treat her to something special! It was the perfect spot! Beautiful, delicious, excellent service, what more could we ask? She felt very celebrated for coming all that way to visit! Thank you Chef Jacques & team!
L'Auberge Chez Francois is our favorite restaurant for special events, and has been for 50 years. It has been a memorable experience every single visit. The food, service and ambience are excellent.
A favorite place to dine for special occasions for over 40 years. Beautiful setting with delicious fresh food and great service.
Service was a bit off from typical experience. Wait staff was not as attentive as normal, and appropriate for cost. Meal was very good, and ambiance pleasant.
Great service, as usual and the food was amazing!
Wonderful experience; wonderful food; wonderful service.
The only down side was a large party that came in and were extremely loud but not too much could be done about it. Management automatically apologised after another couple complained.
Great place otherwise.
We have eaten here a number of evenings. Everything was fantastic, as usual. Thanks.
The good - the salads and lobster were well prepared.
The bad - the scallops were very overcooked, and the fish was overcooked.
This is simply unexpected, and unacceptable, from a restaurant at this level and price point. Disappointing and not recommended.
We all had a wonderful time at lunch yesterday, celebrating two mutual birthdays. My tenderloin was the best I have had anywhere. Trout, salmon, and scalopini pleased the others at the table. While the food was outstanding, our waiter made the meal particularly memorable. He was efficient, thoughtful, amusing--outstanding service!
A great value!
I have been going to L’Auberge Chez Francois for 30 yrs, not happy with past Saturday: Dining Romney crowded and very noisy! Inexperienced new waiter though trying very hard. Number one rule: waiters should be smiling!!! Hot mulled wine (Glühwein) should only be served in glasses with handles (take it from a German). Though rare, this was a disappointing visit.
