What can we say that hasn't already been said! Wonderful choices of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. A very good selection of wines by the glass or by the bottle. The French Onion Soup, the Beef Bourguignon, and the souffle are probably the "staples" on...More

We usually visit this restaurant for special occasion dinners but this time we went for lunch. No surprises. The food and service were great at half the price and much less crowded seating.

Been going here for years. Definitely a special occasion restaurant, but prices have increased over the years. Food from appetizers to entree to soufflés (a must) equal to L’Auberge tradition. New menu deserves attention to additional,pricing for special,dishes.
