Delicious food in a nice setting

We've been to L'Auberge Chez Francois perhaps a dozen times in the last 20 years, and the quality and value is as good as it ever was. Very unusual for a restaurant to withstand the test of time for this long. I haven't found anything on the menu I don't like yet; my advice is don't over-order... read more

Divine! We loved every scrumptious bite at this restaurant! Dover sole was delightful! Chocolate soufflé was out of this world. The service was impeccable! The escargot was very well prepared.

A beautiful, lovely restaurant! I most recently went here to celebrate my birthday with some family. The food is absolutely delicious and the restaurant staff is very attentive and friendly. I just love the ambiance and décor (it is especially beautifully decorated for the holiday).

This is our favorite restaurant - anywhere. We get back to D.C. about yearly, and make our reservation a few weeks before. L'Auberge never disappoints. The food is magnificent, the service impeccable, and the ambiance unmatched. We and our guests enjoyed the Dover Sole this time, preceded by delicious appetizers, and a perfect dry Riesling. The dessert soufflés, both raspberry... More

Wonderful service and great food as always. Chez F has always been a special occasion place. The individuals at the next table wore jeans and t-shirts. There is a sign at the entrance that appropriate dress is required. The individuals at the same seating were yakking on their cell phones throughout the dinner. I do not go to Chez F... More
