We had an amazing anniversary dinner at L'Auberge last weekend. My wife and I loved every course that they rolled out. The staff was very informative. The food was prepared to perfection.
Outstanding food and service. No complaints as it’s still a very special place
As always, and in spite of the pandemic, Chez Francois is a memorable experience. The food is superb, the staff totally professional. Having become a dedicated diner in the original Chez Francois in DC, it is gratifying to see how the restaurant has been able to sustain its superior quality and performance. That is a rare accomplishment for any organization that passes from one generation to another and L’Auberge is an example to all restaurants that aspire to thrive over an extended period.
The food was delicious and the service was really good.
The food was excellent as always. The ambiance is not quite the same with the COVID restrictions. Have been to this restaurant many times. The service this time was not quite as good as in the past. While there were only 3 of us, they had to ask with each course who had ordered what. Have been there with large groups (12-15) and the waiter knew the orders exactly without have to ask. Can't blame a busy restaurant. this is mostly lack of attention to detail from our waiter. His tip was not what it would have been.
Absolutely fantastic - as is the norm here. Anniversary dinner - and everything was perfect from the service to the presentation to the food.
As wonderful as ever; always perfect for special occasions
Service was superb! Food was very good but not excellent
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Always a wonderful treat
Been there very often!
Best restaurant we go to.
Perfect for us always.
Upon arriving there was not one second when we didn’t have someone from their team taking care of us!!! I expected a good meal but I did not expect it to be this magnificent!!! Their service and food and drinks are absolutely outstanding and the ambience is just breathtaking.
L'auberge is sort of a classic kind of place. Everything was cooked nicely, just not very inspired, but that's sort of what you know you're getting when you go. A decent home cook could make everything we'd eaten and had it come out just as good. Their wines by the glass are pretty lackluster, especially the whites. You're on much sounder ground with the bottles and half-bottles. Outdoor eating b/c of Covid was very nicely spaced under a large tent. There are no heaters under the tent, though, so dress warm as evenings get cooler. Service was attentive, but not overly so, and they included all the little extras--again, classic, but not what I'd call really fine dining unless you're in a plague year.
It was lovely. We felt well taken care of and that the service, food, and atmosphere was as attentive, delicious and charming as pre-COVID days.
Tough night to dine outdoors, but Le Auberge made the best of it! Nice work, even in a rain storm and sitting outside under the tent.
We went for my mom's birthday and it was absolutely delicious! The only thing that made it a little less than perfect was that they didn't give us silverware and napkins when we first sat down with the bread, so we had to ask for some.
It never disappoints-the food, ambience, and unhurried but impeccable service are outstanding.
We had outdoors seating under a large tent used for receptions and special occasion. All the staff had on masks and gloves. When I walk by the kitchen, all the staff has mask and gloves as well. This is the 2nd restaurant that my family and I have dinner on premise since March 2020 (COVID). L'Auberge Chez Francois had every safety precaution possible to make sure their patrons has a wonderful meal. Inside the tables were move to keep the safe social distance.
The food was excellent as always and the service was impeccable.
Richard our server was excellent. I haven't been in over 10 years and everything was just as delicious as I remembered it. Definitely a treat for special occasions.
Wanted to go somewhere special for our anniversary. Walked into the restaurant- very dated. Sat us at a table that was social distanced, which was great. Fixed price menu, which was fine. Quality of the food was terrible. I had ordered a steak, very dense and not much flavor. My husband ordered the scallops and shrimp - he had three scallops and 3 shrimp on his plate. For 95 dollars I would have expected more than that. Wait staff was ok, but again I expected much better service for such an expensive meal. Actually saw one staff member walking around with his mask under his nose.
The place to go to celebrate. A wonderful experience, good food, wonderful, service, lovely setting.
Our go to restaurant for special occasions. We have never been disappointed.
Excellent meal, service outstanding, everything was well done.
Superb food, high-caliber service, and a lovely setting=dining excellence.
An open air lunch with old friends that was excellent. Food and service were the usual top notch. We enjoyed the outdoor patio, since the wfall weather that day was spectacular.
Lovely setting...safe. Every dish was delicious. Pacing of the meal is such a delight....plenty of time to savor each course, to enjoy dinner companions, and to relax.
Excellent across the board! One of my favorite places to dine - well worth the money!
Date night it was amazing!!
First time for outdoor lunch and it was wonderful. Tables spaced out food was great though I wish they would offer the Pate and Rilettes as an appitizer.
The staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. It was my birthday and the evening ended with a special dessert with lighted candle. They kindly packed our other desserts to enjoy at home
Everything was perfect. Outstanding experience on every level!
Lovely place, classic, somewhat frozen in time in a good way. I picture my grandparents eating here in 1970 and having largely the same experience. You don't come here looking for exotic 21st century fusion food. You come for a French country bistro experience, where every bite, every ingredient is simple but flavorful, and delicately prepared. They delivered on that front.
I have been dining at L'Auberge Chez Francois since it opened and have NEVER had anything but a wonderful experience.
i love this place. i always have and always will.
The food and service were magnifique as always. The ambience is a bit off as half of the tables have been removed, but this is currently the same everywhere. Unfortunately this also means that a given loud table isn't as likely to be drowned out by ambient noise, as happened to us during our meal. The staff moved us to another section of the restaurant upon request, however, so all ended well. LACF remains the premier French restaurant in the DC area. Oh, and the bar was able to make a 20th Century cocktail for me, an unusual request.
With so many glowing reviews, I did wonder if my experience would be just as good. Thankfully, the food was delicious and the service was exceptional. It does seem like this is the go-to place for special occasions - anniversaries, birthdays, etc. - and the staff was very accommodating. Great meal, great memories!
We had a wonderful celebratory anniversary dinner at our favorite restaurant. Staff were kind, helpful, and attentive and food was superb as always. They brought us a complimentary dessert and even gave us a tour of the beautiful patio, garden area. They were also very Covid conscious and made us feel very pampered. Cannot say enough good things. Everything was fresh and delicious and looking forward to going back again soon!
A wonderful outdoor dinner on a beautiful day. Always spectacular!
This was the best restaurant we’ve ever been to and we’ve been to a lot. Pricey but worth every penny. We had a 2.5 hour 5-course lunch and the staff service was impeccable.
We can’t wait to return!
Excellent as usual
We celebrated my son's 45th birthday on October 2 at L'AUBERGE CHEZ FRANÇOIS. We chose the fixed price menu because it had lots of options. It included everything from appetizers to dessert, with some up charges for special choices such as Caesar salad.
We all chose a different entrée, and we all had an exceptional experience. For a special celebration, this restaurant can't be beat.
