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

When I returned in 1970 from living in Europe, this was one of the first restaurants where I ate on a regular basis. Back then it was on Lafayette Park across from the White House. François Haeringer, who had earlier trained at the famous L'Auberge de I'll in Alsace had managed to bring a little bit of that region of... More

Nobody does NYE dinner better! Great food, immaculate service, and beautiful surroundings. Four of us dined here on 12/31 and each of us loved the complete experience.

Back again for Christmas Eve dinner this year. Had the Christmas goose. It was great. Need to note that they have significantly raised prices. This place is VERY expensive. One of the most expensive meals I ever had. Questionable if it is worth it, if any restaurant is worth it

Seven of us converged here at one of our long time favorite restaurants for a holiday lunch and conversation. The ambience was perfect. We were not rushed as we slowly order our way through our four course meal. The Alsatian dishes were perfectly prepared and real palate pleasers. I met Jacques on the stairs later and personally thanked him for... More

My wife and I had dinner her on Christmas Eve - just as we always do. Year after year, their food is superb. For the appetizer, my wife had the mushroom tart special, and I had the Roquefort pear tart. For the Entre, my wife had the Salmon in puff pastry, and I had the Beef Wellington. For dessert, my...

Yes, everyone will tell you that LAuberge was the place that their grandparents, parents, blah, blah used to go for special occasions, but that's no reason that you can't go there as well. Especially to a place that has withstood the test of time as well as LAuberge. This is not nouvelle cuisine, nor is it trying to be; this... More

We celebrated my wife's birthday today! Made the reservation in OpenTable. Received a confirmation phone call two days prior from the restaurant. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated right away. They offered Champaign or an aperitif, we had the Champaign. We ordered the 4-course prix-fixe luncheon, see their web site for the menu. The food was fantastic with... More

I first experienced L'Auberge Chez Francois over 15 yrs ago. Food at the time, I thought, was really good. But what I remember the most was the first class service. Fast forward November 2016. Revisited with some what of a high expectations due to the Open Table rating of #2 resto in the area. Perhaps that was my mistake. I... More
