Last Saturday night my wife and I celebrated our 41st anniversary at L'Auberge. It was our first time there. The location and layout of the restaurant is quite pretty. It's quiet enough to enjoy conversation without having to shout. From start to finish both the food and service were magnificent. The breads are so good you could make a meal... More

The thing about LAuberge Chez Francois it has not given in to modern restaurant design. It is not loud. It is not hip. It is a great police to go for a long lunch or dinner when you feel like good food in a wonderful environment. Lunch for two can run $130 with tip and wine. The food will not... More

As LAuberge was in close proximity to my wife's sister's house, we were visiting she insisted we try it. The four of us made reservations for lunch and were seated as soon as we arrived as scheduled. We were offered a corner table with a view of the gardens. They gave us two menues, one with a fixed price and... More

We still love L'Auberge. All it's values are still being upheld; quiet dining room, unpretentious staff, good food. But can't help thinking the 'upped' prices might just have people wondering what there is out there for the same price. We had a set meal plus salad (extra) plus 2 aperitifs and a half bottle wine. Over $300. There's a lot... More

Just the experience of driving into the tucked away gorgeous countryside of northern Virginia gets me in the mood for French country Alsacian cooking. We chose the restaurant after a hiatus of five years to celebrate my husband's birthday. Upon arrival, we were immediately set at ease with the friendliness of the proprietor and his staff. We liked the cheerful,... More

Went to this restaurant for lunch because it was on the list of best restaurants in DC a few years back. Also, all of the reviews are great. The service was fine, but not fine dining fine. My husband had the pre-fix lunch manu and I had mussels and the veal. All food was good, but it was certainly not... More

Without a doubt the best of the best in northern virginia. We arrived very early and they could not have been more understanding. So many choices! Service was impeccable. Roquefort tart, sweetbreads were our appetizers. Perfectly prepared, delivered hot to the table. Tuna and softshell crabs were our entrees done exactly right and delicious. Bread pudding dessert was decadent. Cheerful... More

We look forward to visiting this authentic and superb restaurant in the beautifully rural part of Great Falls, VA, for special occasions. Everything, the hosting, the wait staff, the ambiance and, of course, the food, are exquisite and at the level of perfection. Starting with an appetizer not found anywhere else nearby!
