The food and service is absolutely fantastic! It's very loud so not a place for a romantic type meal. Get the cheese board and then order like 14 things. Although I can't eat lamb, so many of my colleagues have said it's amazing. I got the squid this week and it was basically perfect. More

French | Great Falls, Virginia - DC Suburbs

Several months ago after I had been to L'Auberge with some friends, I mentioned it to another friend. We found that we both love their calves liver and decided we should go there together. Being busy ladies, we scheduled our visit for this week at lunchtime. It was a beautiful day and we sat in their outside patio area. It was absolutely a breathtaking and serene environment. With a sun umbrella at every table we were very comfortable. We started with the gazpacho and and the tomato salad, of course followed by the calves liver. Everything was delicious and the service was absolutely impeccable. We will definitely return here for a meal again soon. More

Discover Washington, D.C.

An international city with the food chops to show for it, Washington D.C. is brimming with new restaurants, coffee houses and spirited bars. And, while tablecloth dining has it’s place here (diplomats gotta eat), so does the casual yet delicious lunch spot (interns gotta eat, too). Near the Capitol, historic eateries and classic menus are favored by many. Excellent Filipino food can be found in Columbia Heights. Near Georgetown, upscale bistros and farm-to-table spots are the order of the day, and Adams Morgan is home to many international restaurants and locally owned cafes.
