Great food and service. Not stuffy, uppity gourmet. Might see people is tuxedos or just casual. Get the soufflé. Worth it. I have been there as a couple and an office private party. Would go back but probably not at a peak time like Valentine's. Just for a no occasion dinner. Well worth it.

The food and service are always amazing. Ask for Freddy. The garlic toast with cottage cheese is to die for. I always pick Le croustillant au Roquefort (Roquefort tart) for my starter. I could eat that every day. Delicious. Even though I just had roquefort, I can't resist the Roquefort salad. All the lettuce and veggies are fresh. Jacques has... More

We have visited this restaurant in the past and we were thrilled with the food and the total experience. For us, this is a place to visit for special occasions, but we'd visit more often if money wasn't an object. The staff knew it was a special night for our friends 40th birthday and they were super nice and attentive... More

My brother and his charming lady friend joined my wife and me for dinner in the Garden Room. We were seated at the table by the fireplace which added a special touch. The service and four course dinner was outstanding. The individual soufflé's were Devine. A top notch restaurant!

I was initially hesitant about what type of experience I would have at L'Auberge as it receives such consistently high reviews I was worried that I would go in with rose colored glasses. I did not think they would be able to live up to my expectations as a first time patron of their establishment. In short, I was wrong.... More

We have eaten here more than a dozen times over the last 20 years -- and this is my first review. L'Auberge is remarkably consistent. The food is very good -- it's timeless. It is nothing new and flashy, its solid and consistent. The restaurant is classy and the service excellent. the food is tasty -- but not nouveau. They... More
