Quality food and service.

Food and service were very good. It's not inexpensive, but it shouldn't have to be, and besides, they offer lots of discounts to people on their listserve. It remains a venerable, high-quality Alexandria restaurant venue and highly recommended. (I don't like to give out five stars but this... read more

Ready for a meal that is truly an experience? Okay it may break the bank, but it is well worth it. The ambiance is other worldly. Exposed brick. Banquet seating. Porcelain candle lit covers all with different depictions. Fresh flowers. Crisp linens. Service to please, not too over solicitous. Started with champagne -- lovely. Escargot in garlic butter and enough... More

We were impressed by just about every aspect of our first dinner visit to La Bergerie. From the friendly greeting by the hostess (who we think must be the owner's daughter because her picture and that of another very enthusiastic young staff member were on the wall by the front desk), through a very nice dessert, everything was fine, in...

We had lunch yesterday at La Bergerie and it was fabulous. The food was delicious, the presentation perfect and the service impeccable. It was wonderful to see they still do table-side service for the Caesar salad, crepes, and Dover sole. I highly recommend this restaurant for both lunch and dinner..

Great restaurant! Not noisy so you can actually converse with someone. Food is exceptional. I highly recommend the caesar salad prepared at your table and the Dover sole is the best I've had...anywhere.

The cuisine was fair, the prices high, the service fine, but...in the end, we concluded that is was not what we expected or hoped for, especially since Alexandria offers a variety of French cuisine restaurants. The setting is very plain, so we are hoping that when it moves to one of Alexandria's oldest mansions on Washington St. in a few... More

Went to La Bergerie during Restaurant Week so maybe it was off because of that but the escargot were flavorless as was the quinoa that was under my fish. Service was excellent but the food was lacking.

Very impressive service. Limited wine selection. The small amount of food received on the plate was surprising. An online menu revue might be best before going to this restaurant. Each menu item had special ingredients and it might be best to know what you want. This is not a place for meat-and-potatoes kind of people.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our dinner here last weekend and can't wait to return. We decided on the Chef's dinner (4 courses) and every bite was fabulous. I started with the escargot (not one of the course selections so I just ordered it off the regular menu) and it was garlicky and perfectly seasoned. My husband started with... More
