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

Food, ambiance, service - all tops! Entire staff at our service with such professionalism and courteousness. Our group enjoyed the beautiful setting and charming atmosphere - and the delicious beyond words prixe-fixed menu with several courses. Our party of 6 had a corner table and, because the restaurant was not noisy, we were able to enjoy conversations across the table.... More

After an absence from this area of more than 20 years we came back for a visit. We had amazing memories of this family owned and run restaurant and had high hopes for our recent dinner. Drum roll....We were thrilled to find the grandson of the lady we remembered working in the dining room. The menu hasn't changed much over... More

Move over France, nothing compares to fall foliage and European Food in Great Falls Virginia in November. Outdoor seating in the garden or window seat in one of the three dining areas, this restaurant's view will not disappoint, especially when combines to driving a very short distance and viewing the Great Falls of the Potomac National Park.

I rated this restaurant as excellent but that doesn't do it justice. We celebrated my mother-in-laws 84th birthday here. The service was exceptional, there must have been at least four waiters taking care of us. The food was exceptional also. With this type of attention to detail, you can understand why reservations must be made months in advance.

Always enjoy a trip to Chez Francois in Great Falls. The food and service are always excellent. This time the dining room was a bit too chilly so rated very good rather than excellent
