“Delicious and cozy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in recently at the end of a snowstorm. The parking was convenient and cleared nicely. The menu offered numerous items that we're appealing to us. We chose the lamb sausage, cauliflower soup, beet salad and beef bourgigon and they were all excellent. Portions were right sized,and our waitress was very attentive and helpful. Looking forward to a return visit next time I am in the area.

“Country French at its Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

High quality food served in beautiful country French atmosphere...Middleburg in-town sanctuary for
relaxed elegance. Owners immersed in operations insure quality delivery of food and service.

“Ehhhh? ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

When you spend $200+ on a dinner for two, there should be delivered a certain experience that clearly leaves you understanding this isn't a $75 trip to a national chain. Critically-few moments shined above what would be expected at....Carrabba's. The service was sophomoric. The food was good - at $18. At $35 it misses.

Their location is solid, so they'll get away with it, but never again to include my money.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

This was my second visit to The French Hound. The first time was for dinner a year ago. None of the foursome were overly impressed with the food/service and found the price a bit steep in terms of the quality provided. My most recent experience was for lunch. Neither my friend nor I will return. We arrived at the restaurant to find no one to greet us and we stood there for some time before being shown to a table. The service was SLOW and found that it was strange that no bread was served in a French restaurant. The curtains next to our table were stained. We had to ask several times for utensils, etc.

Just didn't have the positive experience that others did...perhaps we were there on 'off' days...

“A Nice Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

A friend and I had brunch at the French Hound in late October. This was our second visit, and we liked it both times. The food is excellent and the service is attentive without being overbearing. We also felt that cost of the meal was less that expected to pay.

If you're looking for a relaxed brunch place in Middleburg, this is a good one!
