Lunch was good

Busy time of year - seemed like they were short staffed but food was great. Waiter seemed a little frazzled and forgot to bring the bread. My lunch was to come with a salad but he also forgot that. Food came quickly; obviously the kitchen is able to serve a quick lunch for the local working crowd... read more

Excellent menu and service, the restaurant was busy. Interesting decor - not very French really - but that doesn't distract from the fine food.

A family visit and we found the food and table service great. The Key Lime pie was to die for. Don't miss if in the area.

Our 4 couples get together for a Christmas lunch every year. This year, we chose La Petite Auberge and were not disappointed. I started with the mushroom soup that was fantastic, followed by the ritz cracker encrusted oysters. Others had shrimp stuffed with crab meat and salads. Everyone was very impressed with the food and the server. This is a... More

Actually went to Auberge with a group of coworkers while on a trip. This place is awesome from the setting to the food to the staff. Can't remember what everyone ordered but everyone was very happy with their meals. Take a date and ask for one of the smaller rooms.

We have never been disappointed. We've eaten here a couple of times and this time just stopped in for some wine and local hospitality. All was well. Friendly bar tender with comfortable surroundings and comfortable guest. Just right

We picked this place solely because it looked interesting when we walked by. It turned out to be a lovely French white-tablecloth place... kind of fancy but not too much so. Our waiter was great, and service suited an upscale place. I had the trout almondine and my husband had the eggs benedict. Both were delicious and we ate every... More
