L’Auberge Chez Francois, an Alsatian brasserie quietly nestled in Great Falls, Virginia, took another spot in the OpenTable Choice Awards for the second year in a row – a winner in the top 100 best restaurants in the United States.

The French family restaurant, dedicated to the cozy inn feel, recreates an Alsatian countryside auberge experience and brings French ambiance, good honest food and affordable prices to the Northern Virginia area.

“My father, Francois, who founded the restaurant in 1954, always said his keys to success were simply ‘stick to the basics; good food, good ambiance and good service,’” said Jacques Haeringer, chef and owner of L’Auberge Chez Francois. “Dining should be a total experience, from the service to the setting. This is a tradition that has lived on at the restaurant for more than 60 years and is something we pride ourselves on.”

The OpenTable title, chosen from over 12,000 restaurants, holds great significance in the restaurant world. The list of winners is concluded from more than 10 million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners. To add to their success, L’Auberge was also named the #1 Best Overall Restaurant in the Virginia/DC suburbs Diner Choice Awards.

“These winners have proven they are at the top of their game every day,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s Chief Dining Officer, “they make certain that every aspect of a guest’s visit it both delicious and divine.”

Félicitations L’Auberge!
