    If you want great and classic French cuisine, this is the place to go. Each course was delicious and the souffles at the end were just amazing.

    We had a wonderful experience in every respect. We were greeted cordially, wished a happy anniversary, and shown to a lovely corner table by a window. Tables are nicely spaced and the atmosphere is convivial but not noisy. There was a creative selection of aperitifs to choose from, and warm homebaked breads with butter and a delicious sour cream-based spread. I indulged myself with the foie gras appetizer, and my husband has perfectly cooked asparagus over country ham. We were given a demitasse of warm lentil soup before the salad course, and a bit of lemon sorbet after. I had the matelote, with crab, lobster, sea bass, salmon, and scallop in a light white wine and lobster sauce with a whisper of nutmeg. Tom had entrecote of beef, cooked just medium rare, with truffle sauce. We had asked the sommelier to suggest a wine that could cope with both, and he suggested a smooth and light Pommard that complemented our meal beautifully. Desserts, yes! I ordered Grand Marnier souffle for myself; my husband chose creme brulee; then the chocolate truffles showed up after. Service was warm and professional and never snooty or condescending, just gracious, welcoming, and helpful. It was a splurge but well worth it to celebrate our 39th anniversary in lovely surroundings with a first-class dinner. There looked to be a very nice outdoor patio -- maybe next time! Could not have been a nicer experience.

    Our waiter was very helpful with our selections carefully explaining choices, beverages and desserts. Food was delicious. Two of us had the veal scallops and I had the lemon sole special of the day. Yummy. We each managed to have some dessert even though we were quite full by the end! Great experience.

    The ultimate date night restaurant. The food is exceptional and the service even better. The last time we dined at L'Auberge was 21 years ago. We moved from D.C. to California and then to North Carolina. We were visiting D.C. on business and decided to visit them for dinner. We were surprised and elated that they had not missed a step. Everything was just as we remembered. In this world of constant change, it is so reassuring that L'Auberge has maintained the old-world charm, food, and service that has made it famous. Do not hesitate to visit this one-of-a-kind restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

    It was our anniversary and we were treated extremely well. As always the food and wine were exceptional and the wait staff went above and beyond. Always our favorite place to celebrate an event but we also love it for just an evening out.

    L’Auberge Chez Francois is a neighborhood restaurant that serves as a special occasion favorite. The food is old school French without the finesse you’d find in any top French restaurant in a major city. We’ve gone there over the years not for the value but for the convenience of location. I would not recommend it to anyone who’s a serious Francophile foodie.

    L'Auberge is iconic. We've been coming here for over 40 years and the quality and service has not changed. You can count on the impeccable service, pacing, food and beverage choices, and lots of extra touches that tell you that you are in a special place. It is not just a great restaurant, but every time the experience takes us away on a mini-vacation in France for a couple of hours, and that is priceless.
