My wife and I stayed at L’Auberge for our anniversary this past June. We went to this inn mainly for the restaurant and it surely lives up to it’s reputation . We went to Provence on our honeymoon so we figured it would be quite ideal for an anniversary. From the decor, to the music, and even the service… it was almost like we were back on our honeymoon in the south of France. The restaurant was one of the finest tasting menus that we have tried in the Northern Virginia area. The presentation, along with the flavors and service were quite remarkable. It was an extensive tasting menu with a wide variety of dishes. The sommelier helped us pick out a bottle to enjoy which we really loved. There was even French music playing in the background to add to the romantic experience. We definitely consider this one of the most romantic inn and restaurants that we have been to, and highly suggest it for your next special celebration.

What a wonderful retreat! L’Auberge Provencale was what we were hoping it would be. We stayed at the Villa. It was private and peaceful. The pool and its landscaping are beautiful. We took most meals at the main Inn and one at the Villa. All were so good. Breakfasts were delicious; the in-room meal felt very authentic; and the Chef’s Tasting Menu was worth the celebration for which we had planned it. Servers and staff throughout our stay were very friendly and helpful, and we came back feeling both relaxed and refreshed. Located only 1.5 hours from DC, this is a getaway that we hope to easily repeat.

My boyfriend booked this bed and breakfast after trying to find a nice place to stay in Virginia "wine country" for my birthday. I was excited to have a nice relaxing weekend away, especially after seeing on their website the beautiful pool and hot tub. I didn't realize, after re-reading the welcome e-mail, that we were required to eat at the hotel for dinner. I have never heard of this before but figured, oh well, we had wanted to eat at a nice restaurant for my birthday anyways. Unfortunately, the meal left a lot to be desired. The restaurant itself is nice, but tacky with old French posters. Choosing a decent priced bottle of wine was difficult, the range of wines listed anywhere from $60-$1,000+. I'm shocked who would want to waste that money on such a sub-par meal. We figured we would play it safe; my boyfriend ordered the Wagyu burger (rare) and I ordered the pork chops with ratatouille. His burger came out way over cooked, but somehow the cheese on top was still cold. The pork chops were fine, but the ratatouille tasted like mustard seed. The flavor was so off we both couldn’t finish it. The service was fine, everyone was very friendly and accommodating, which is expected for a restaurant that enforces a “strict” dress code. Still, I didn’t want to risk ordering a $12 birthday dessert. All in all, for the high prices and formality they requested, we were not impressed. The room itself was adequate, and large, but the glass shower door was misaligned, and I was stressed that it would shatter every time I closed it. With the nightly price tag, I assumed the shampoo, conditioner and soap would be an expensive brand – nope, we had to run to the local CVS to purchase a decent bar of soap. Side note- the front of the bed and breakfast also faces the high way, which is visible from the windows, as well as audible. The next day, I was so excited to relax by the pool and use the hot tub- no such luck, the hot tub was out of order with big wooden slats on top. My boyfriend and I were so confused who was staying at this hotel – with its grand price tag and subpar rooms, in addition to the awful meal we spent our money on. I felt bad because the servers were very pleasant and accommodating, but to charge such a high price tag and fail to deliver, that’s a shame. Not only that but to REQUIRE us eat at the costly restaurant, was a disappointment. The property is lovely, but unfortunately, not worth the price / dining requirement.

I was very disappointed in this B&B and would not recommend. My husband and I were traveling cross country on our motorcycle and after staying with family for a few days we were so looking forward to our night at L'Auberge. The location is really beautiful, the grounds are lovely and Emily was very nice when we checked in. Because we had limited storage on our bike we didn't have dress clothes with us and I asked Emily if we would be ok eating in the restaurant because of the 'dress code'. She assured us multiple times that the menu that night was 'casual' and we'd be fine in our jeans or even shorts and tee shirts. Emily helped us carry our bags to the Van Gogh room which was really lovely, furnishings beautiful, bed was comfortable, linens were nice and I was really looking forward to the whirlpool bath after dinner. However, there was NO SHOWER in this room. There is a hand held shower in the whirlpool tub but honestly, I use a hand held shower to wash my dog or clean my whirlpool. It's not feasible to expect grown adults to use that as a shower. Seriously. Had this been the end of the story i would have given them 4 stars for the room, even without a shower. Dinner just spoiled the whole night, the entire stay. We were judged by the restaurant staff based on on clothes, even tho we were GUESTS, the servers ignored us all night. They had servers in black jackets and 2 on white shirts. We had a white shirt, young guy, who didn't know answers to our questions indicating he was a junior server or bus person? After waiting an HOUR for our meal, looking at our EMPTY WATER GLASSES and my EMPTY WINE GLASS while watching another table be served by every single black jacket in the place, we finally lost our patience. My husband ordered chicken and no where on the menu does it say it was going to take an hour. When it was finally served, BURNT the person serving said "at least it's not raw". Wow. But you know, it actually was raw and potatoes were undercooked. One black jacket said she was sorry and did we want dessert? We ordered dessert to go and this time we had the other white shirt server, who was the nicest person in that restaurant. We went in there expecting to spend $300 on a nice meal. Instead we were ignored, served awful food and treated extremely poorly. And then they had the nerve to give us a bill for $160.00 The next morning neither of us wanted to go to the restaurant for breakfast so I requested it in the room instead. My husband left a note when we left and I spoke with Emily about our experience but the best they would do is comp our dinner, altho I've yet to see the credit. They advertise they are the Best High End restaurant in Virginia but let me tell you, I'm from Palm Beach, Florida and if they are the best in Virginia, you all have my sympathy. Go anywhere else.

Unique and romantic experience, definitely worth the splurge. Room was cozy (we stayed in Lafayette), and the aromatherapy steam shower was an unexpected luxury. Private balcony had excellent views as promised and the on site restaurant did not disappoint. Extensive wine menu left nothing to be desired.

The location is beautiful when viewed front to back, especially the back: hundreds of acres of lush, rolling fields. Unfortunately, with your back to the front of the inn where most of the lounge-about chairs were situated, you're looking at a busy highway. Worse: You're hearing a lot of road noise. Sitting outside and sipping wine thus became something far less than romantic. And romantic is what we wanted to celebrate an anniversary. Our room -- the popular Renoir suite or room -- had an overall almost-shabby feel. The king mattress was good in a room that clearly was not designed for a king bed. The fireplace was a nice touch, but it only burned manufactured "fake" logs. The drapes had a "we're tired" look that was off-putting, but they did at least partially conceal the venetian blinds. The bathroom was small, but doable. Bottom line: OK, but overpriced. It seemed to be attempting to hold on to past glories. But, truth be told, we went there not so much for the accommodations, as the fine French food that was the inn's calling card. Nonetheless, we were somewhat surprised to learn that, as a requirement for being able to rent a room, one had to commit to having at least one dinner in the main dining room. Not a problem: We were up to eating there for both nights of our stay. Error. The menu looked like something you'd find in a sandwich shop, with prices you'd expect from a Michelin three star. The wine list was extraordinary, to be sure, and -- if you are extremely wealthy with a lot of cash to burn -- priced within reason. They even had some wines whose price could be conveyed in two digits; most required three. The interior is more or less OK, with a few paintings complemented by repro posters, not something you'd expect from a resto offering wines that exceeded $1,000 a bottle. Often, in situations like this, the quality of service can be a saving grace. Here, the service was so bad, it made the poor menu, mediocre food, insane food pricing, and semi-tacky venue look good. More on this under resto reviews.

We stayed in the Lafayette, # 7. It was a spacious room, with a king bed and a large sitting room, where the tv and the fridge and Keurig are. The sitting room had a chilly atmosphere (and was also actually chilly) so we didn't use it. The steam shower was lovely,. The bed was comfy, and it was quiet for sleeping. Faux fireplace. The restaurant was quite good. Impressive wine list. Excellent service. It was very nice to have breakfast in the room. There is a little table by a window that was pleasant for breakfast, and of course the surrounding area is pretty. This is a beautiful old structure and the restaurant is charming. But for $479 a night (a Friday) the room was a disappointment. No antiques, Provencal decor or textiles, kind of generic decor (posters of French art exhibits, etc). The hairdryer was missing, and for a place that wants to be a luxury inn, they should check for those things. Carpets maybe not the cleanest. The terrace is just a roof, with a round glass patio table, a couple of cheap chairs, a dead evergreen tree in a pot. Maybe it will be a better space in the summer?

We were not impressed and would not return. Rooms are far less attractive than the photos. My wife did not like her dinner entree but I had a very good $70 steak. Neither of us particularly liked our "sides" but the French fries were OK. Table service was acceptable but relatively inattentive and no one (after the initial fill up) poured our $125 bottle of wine for us. My dessert (rice pudding) was weird. All in all, overrated and overpriced.

My husband and I recently spent an overnight at the B&B and had a very nice dinner outside on the front porch of the main inn and restaurant to celebrate major birthdays. We stayed in a first floor room in the main inn building. Compared to our first visit 25+ years ago when the inn was still fairly new, this time it felt like we were visiting an aging movie star who's glamour was starting to fade. The fabrics (curtains, table cloth and bedding) were faded, the bed sagged and some of the electrical equipment was noisy and well past it's prime. Dinner was very nice and service exceptional. It was a cool evening so we found ourselves eating alone on the front porch with a heater brought over to keep us warm and it felt like we had our own private chef! Service was attentive but not invasive in spite of the fact that the dining rooms were filled to capacity that evening. Breakfast the next morning was a mixed bag. The entre items had to be ordered the night before and were prepared in the kitchen that morning but the muffins were cold and hard and the croissants looked as though they had been reheated from a package. I expect fresh baked muffins for the price of that room. Two final comments. We were disappointed that staff were not wearing masks anywhere on the property - including the kitchen. The website specifically says staff all wear masks inside but the only masks we saw were on guests. The other comment is that although they asked on the phone, and in follow-up emails, if this was a special occasion, all we got was a "happy birthday" from the receptionist when we arrived - nothing in the room or at the restaurant. If they aren't going to do anything to acknowledge special occasions best not to ask about them as asking creates expectations. Realizing that this past 18 months has been very hard for the hospitality industry I'm only taking away 1 star from their rating for these shortcomings. But the inn and restaurant were fully booked the weekend we were there so hopefully they'll start getting enough money in that they can restore the older rooms to their previous glory. And please make sure that your mask policy is followed.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at this inn. The place was perfect - very quiet with a nice pool. The service was immpeccable and the food at the restaurant and for breakfast was outstanding. Breakfasts were delicious and hearty - fresh croissants and eggs cooked to perfection. One of the best hollandaise sauces we've had! Dinner with the wine pairing was an evening to remember! The sommelier was so helpful and friendly. The room we stayed in was spacious. The owners are lovely. Can't wait to come back!
