“Excellent French Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I am from Montreal, Quebec. I so miss French food. That was until we found Auberge Chez Francois. While a bit pricey, the meal was worth every penny & more. We plan to go back for special occasions. We also plan to try his bistro. The only problem is we enjoy the food so much it is then hard to make the 2 hour drive home. This is true French cooking with a modern twist. It is as good or better than I have had in Paris, France.

“Exquisite cuisine in a beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

It looked to me a favorite place for special celebrations. And it is... Definitely not a cheap place but definitely haut cuisine, as the French people say. I would recommend some reading before these experience. About the concept... To better plan. You pay the price of the main course (in the range of 75) and you get an appetizer at your choice, a salad, a soup, a dessert and of course the main course. So you have a lot of amazing food. Therefore, as a gourmet but a weight watcher I would go there for lunch instead of dinner. Onion soup was great, the vegetarian grilled vegetable mix was perfect, the halibut in pastry was delicious. The wine list is great and Bordeaux list is even better... Desserts... Crème Brûlée as in Paris... Service is excellent and the decor intimate. Menu for kids is available and a coat is recommended for...monsieurs.

“Fantastic meal in a wonderful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Dinner here is always a treat and you feel you have traveled to an old world setting. The food is delicious-the game feast is my husbands favorite. The service is some of the finest you will encounter. The tables near the windows are best for romantic occasions as some tables are a bit close in the center of the fist room. Enjoy!!

“The bistro on the lowevel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

At the back of the restaurant there is a less formal dining room called the Bistro. This dining room uses the same kitchen as its upstairs parent. The service is still world class and has the identical wine and drink menu. The only downside is that the room is tightly packed with tables and much more noisy. Additional sound deadening decor would be a great addition.

Check this out for last minute dining experience when a less formal dinner party is needed..

“One of the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

One of the best restaurants I've been to. Got the French onion soup, tomato salad (picked that day from their garden), Chateaubriand, chocolate souffle, and I could not find a single flaw in any dish. The food was simply out of this world, and the service was not even the slightest bit stuffy as some previous reviews have indicated. In fact, our server was quite funny and went out of his way to ensure our friends' 7 year old boy enjoyed his French dining experience as well. I'm still thinking about this meal and I can't wait to go back.
