Classic French in Old Town

Over all a good dinner but not great. Some other reviews have mentioned "overpriced for the quality of food" we felt the same. We have been here several times in the past, always count on excellent service and good choice of french favorites. If you haven't been give it a try.

We viisited La Bergerie during Restaurant Week and flind a lovely atmosphere, (people tend to dress up a little at this elegant place...and respect their fellow diners with quiet, not raucous conversation). We found the food was special in every way. (Lump crabcake, Seafood Medley, profiteroles were all excellent.) The service was perfect. This is a special place not to... More

La Bergerie is my go-to special occasion restaurant in Alexandria. You can count on great service in a lovely, old-world atmosphere. Because the food is high quality and freshly prepared, it is not inexpensive. However, the Restaurant Week menu offers the same high quality at special price. I always start with the escargot, and this visit for my entrée enjoyed... More

My husband and I went there during Restaurant Week. I ha debentures there many years ago and remembered it as being outstanding. I like to judge high-end restaurants of how they do during Restaurant week - I think it show the real character of the place, I.e., do they"dumb down" or portion-down, or other. My husband really liked his selections... More

La Bergerie has a casual-elegant ambience that is charming in every detail. The service was good, the food superb. My mom and I both had a brussels sprout/watercress soup for which "exquisite" is the only word. She was very happy with her beef ribs, and my crab cake couldn't have been more delicious. We topped things off with souffles --... More

La Bergerie has been a favorite for more than 30 years. Their food is delicious; service is friendly and impeccable; and the dining room is formal, yet comfortable and inviting. Their food has evolved over the years, and it now has less heavy sauces, more Continental cuisine than totally French. My all time favorite is seared foie gras - it's... More

Great service in the time honored restaurant. We had not been back in several years and it was the same excellent French food we had received before. We took two French friends and they declared it authentic.
