This was a great overall experience for my wife and me. Wanted to have a nice Valentine's Day dinner and we weren't disappointed. From the welcome to the service to the food and ambiance, it exceeded our expectations. It is pricy, especially if you love wine, but worth the cost.

L'Auberge has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. Food is fantastic; service is always excellent; ambiance is terrific. It's a long drive from our house--a solid 30 minutes--but always worth the effort. I wish I could find something negative to say so I'd sound clever, but I can't. Oh wait, the restrooms are downstairs! That's it. Love the place.

We dined at L'Auberge Chez Francois to celebrate Valentine's Day (we actually went the day after V-Day as we both work in hospitality). The experience was nothing short of fantastic! The food was delicious and service outstanding. The pre-fix menu and coursing truly makes the meal feel like a special occasion. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Chez Francios is a Washington institution. We have ben eating there since it was on Connecticut Avenue near the White House. The food is excellent, as is the service. Elegant, but not stuffy. Comfortable. Always pleasant. Good value.

Wonderful experience not our first time
Outstanding Service I cannot say enough about the skill and care from the gentleman attended to our table. We felt the real concern he had for our enjoyment of our meal.
You need to go to appreciate this restaurant, because it is more than just a restaurant.

One of my very favorite restaurants. Outstanding food and service, beautiful indoors and out. Everything I've eaten there has been delicious. Lobster bisque and seafood boullabaisse are two of my favorites. Plan on a long meal and a big price tag, but I like to think of it as a special occasion/event.

I've been going to this restaurant for about 30 years off and on. Amazingly, the food, service, total experience haven't changed a bit. It's a reliable place to take anyone, and the food is absolutely fantastic! The service is impeccable - not stuffy, just plain elegant and contributes greatly to the overall enjoyment of the meal. You really feel that you're in a wonderful country French restaurant, friendly, cozy with its many dining rooms, but run in a totally professional manner. Not for the budget conscious, but you certainly get what you pay for here!

Everything about our evening was perfect. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. We hadn't been in several years and I forgot how truly special this place is. It is worth every penny. Can't wait to go back.

Hadn't been here in 10 years and expected something less than what we experienced. Excellent food, world-class service, and a close location make this place a must-go for any and all true food lovers in the NOVA region! Thank you for demonstrating that excellence in a tough industry can truly hold for so many years!

We came with friends. It was their first visit to L'Auberge Chez Francois.
We have been coming for many years and always have a great experience.

We look forward to our next visit.

I hadn't been there in many years and was a bit concerned about changes but was in fact very happy with everything, ambiance with a nice welcome, immediate and attentive professional service including recommendations. The meal itself was super at every course and even had several nice gratis surprises. I wont stay away long again.

We went for the prix-fixe luncheon special. The menu offered a wide range of choices--enough to satisfy the 4 members of my party. The service was attentive without being overwhelming. The food was delicious--especially the dark chocolate tart, a must for chocoholics! All in all, a wonderful afternoon!

It was my daughter's 60th birthday and we couldn't have chosen a better place. We had great conversation with little interuption and excellent service. The food was delicious and we felt special being there for this special occasion. Thank you for the wonderful afternoon.

L'Auberge is everything you want it to be, from the time you enter the drive of the inn till the moment you leave it is an exquisite experience. I took my wife here to celebrate my birthday, we chose the pre fixe menu and it did not disappoint. The veal sweetbreads were creamy and rich, the poached Maine lobster was heavenly and the soufflé was just the perfect finish! Our server was Richard, he was very attentive and was a true professional and man of his craft. This will not be the last time we visit The Inn.

L'Auberge Chez Francois is always a delight. Food is very good and the service is friending and professional. The expansive menu makes you regret you can't order one of everything. The wine menu is not extensive, but I don't see that as a bad thing. It has plenty of great choices in each varietal, but not too many, which makes choosing easier. My son and I were enjoying the dinner for my birthday. Can't wait to return.

This is one of our favorite places. The food and service are always outstanding. Unfortunately, as retirees, we can't afford to come as often as we like. We definitely look forward to our next dinner. Keep up the good work!

I hadn't been to Chez Francois for a few years and this visit re-kindled my desire to come back every week! The service was excellent (the waiter was very attentive without being pushy), the food was fabulous (the menu is extensive), and the tables are well spaced and comfortable. So hard to find such a pleasant eating experience these days in downtown restaurants where the norm is overcrowded and rushed. I definitely won't wait so long to come back.

Wonderful lunch at L'Auberge Chez Francois. My friend from NC and I dined there twice in the last 2 weeks and delicious as always with outstanding service. It's my friend's favorite Metro area restaurant and she loved it again. Thanks L'Auberge" for 2 wonderful and relaxing meals.
