Chez Francois is one of my favorite restaurants in the world … and my world includes a lifetime of traveling the globe. Dinner is elegant, always delicious and fresh, and may require a joyful three hours of dining bliss. Service is absolutely the best, and incomparable, in my book. You actually feel part of the Chez Francois family. On our... More

This is a gem. The recipes and choices the chef makes are to die for. Every course is a surprise of ingredients. The patio setting with two acres of lawn and an herb garden is very unique. Truly unique.

Our family has been coming to Chez Francois for over 20 years for special occasions of anniversaries, birthdays and Holidays. The food is still good and the service very professional. The prices have tripled over the years to arround $100.00 per person with wine for an evening meal. The menu selections seem more limited than times past and dominated by... More

Chez Francois is a first-rate restaurant not only for its food and wine but also for its setting in the woods and its interior ambiance. It's really a "special occasion" restaurant as no one deserves to eat this well regularly! The wine dinners, which are fixed price, prepaid affairs, are especially good. You are served a different wine from the... More

This was an early wedding gift for us and the meal and service were excellent! We were welcomed and made comfortable, served with grace and respect and never felt rushed. The food was some of the best we've had.

What can you say? LAuberge does not disappoint! Another great meal in Great Falls. The service and food is always impeccable. The wine recommendations are spot on! We will be back to enjoy the rose garden soon.

We spent our wedding anniversary here this evening after a very long few weeks of graduations and inlaws. We had never been, despite many recommendations and reviews. WHAT WERE WE WAITING FOR! Tommy made our night perfect...with charm, service and a shared sense of humor, it was unforgettable. Bon appetite!

L'Auberge Chez Francois is consistently one of the best restaurants and experience in fine dining. We went with another couple who got engaged there 27 years ago...and have been back since, but again found it really special and delightful. We had everything from their crepe/mushroom appetizer, to sweet breads, to more traditional appetizers. I had the lobster...yum...sweet and perfectly made,... More

I've been dining at L'Auberge since the day it opened. I cannot even begin to calculate how many dinners I've had there, but the number is close to 400. On the other hand, I can tell you how many times I've been disappointed: Not once. The service is impeccable. The food is prepared just so. The wine list always includes... More

I love French cuisine and fully understand that nothing about L'Auberge Chez Francois suggests that it is exploring new culinary directions. That said, I cannot help having been underwhelmed by the totally expected, unspectacular preparation and presentations. The escargot was done in the same style as every other staid French restaurant - with the snails essentially impossible to taste in... More
