Went with friends night before races. Excellent service in beautiful old house. Good wine list, drink menu. Little disappointed in Caesar salad, but really only thing off.

One block off Middleburg's main road is The French Hound, a wonderful French-bistro themed restaurant with local fresh farm foods prepared with innovation that are guaranteed to tease, and please, your palate. Set in a 17th century country home, with rooms mirroring a manor in Provence, we lunched on Pistou de Roquette et Amandes: fresh pasta mixed with almond pesto,... More

We had a very enjoyable anniversary dinner with The French Hound. The food and service was very good! Loved the local wine! wish they offered more. The portions were very generous. Surprising for a "French" restaurant. The mussels are a must. The lamb sausage and the salmon dishes were well prepared.

The four of us had a really nice late lunch served by an all-smile wonderful staff, including the chef himself. We sent From fresh gaspacho to fantastic escargots, to delicious, if a bit small, tartars, to somptuous merguez sandwich and bison hamburger, and concluded with an incredible pana cotta topped with blackberry compote. Every dish was beautifully presented, the service... More

Very comfortable place. The front of house staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We had brought in a special bottle of wine and had no issues having it served (with a reasonable corkage fee) with our meal. Now on to the food. From the escargot and duck confit appetizers to the steak and crab cakes main courses all prepared to... More

My companion and I both had lobster risotto and it was superb! The service was quick and friendly. It was somewhat crowded and loud for a Wednesday evening, but it didn't detract from the quality of food.

Ive posted about this restaurant several times but after this last visit Im done. It was bad. First, the menu selection was terrible. All seven of us struggled to order. The chicken with salad on top was almost inedible. Two had that and barely ate anything. The bison burger must not have been very good as my brother in law... More

Main dish was small but ok but desert was not as expected as the crepes were cold rather than warm as shown on the menu. May have been forgotten to serve in a timely manner?

We can here for lunch and both ordered the chicken paillard which was a real treat. Great service and a very cute and cosy restaurant.
