Fodor's Review

Set in the Virginia countryside, this sprawling restaurant serves the German-influenced cuisine of Alsace. The decor is romantic—a fireplace dominates the main dining room, and red-jacketed waiters courteously guide you through the all-inclusive six-course meal. Choucroute (sausage, duck, smoked pork, and foie gras served atop sauerkraut), and Le Chateaubriand de L'Auberge—served with fresh vegetables, béarnaise, and truffle sauce—are just two of the

generously portioned entrées. You are asked in advance whether you'd like a soufflé. Say yes, unless the Alsatian plum tart is calling you instead. Make dinner reservations up to a month in advance.

The Best

This is my absolute, hands down, favorite restaurant of all time. The setting is very cozy and the service is outstanding. I have eaten here dozens of times over the last 11 years. I have never been disappointed in a single morsel there. While the price may seem high - it includes an appetizer, salad, entree, and dessert. Some appetizers and desserts are extra - but overall a great value compared to many fine restaurants in the DC area. Another

positive is the wine prices. Many of the prices are very reasonable for all budgets. I highly recommend this gem for romance and special occasions with loved ones.
