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.

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 restaurant iremains one of the top restaurants in Old Town.

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

Every aspect of our evening was great. We were promptly seated on a Friday night, the dinner selections were nicely varied, the drinks were "full pours", and the wine list had a nice mix of varitals and price. Best of all was the service from our very pregnant server. She is a restaurant long timer, and was very knowledgeable of... More

We recently attended a wine and food pairing dinner here - it exceeded our expectations. It started with appetizers and sherry, followed by a 6 course dinner. The price point was just right, and we were not rushed. What was especially great was the wine "master" (one of only about 300 worldwide) that explained each wine to us before each... More

After a recent visit with several other "foodies" that enjoy French food, I am sad to report that La Bergerie is only a pale shadow of what they were several years ago. While the food was mediocre, service lackadaisical, decor cheesy and aged, and the experience disheartening, the cost of an evening at La Bergerie continues to go up. There... More
