L'Auberge Chez Francois
French cuisine in a farmhouse setting
French · $$$$
The Zagat Review
“Everything clicks” at this “charming” country French setting in Great Falls, where the staff is “really glad to see you” and you “want to love everything” – the “plentiful” Provençal comfort classics, the “picture-perfect” garden dining and the all- “inclusive” prix fixe pricing; “dated in a good way” , it’s been a “favorite special-occasion” choice for decades, though for more relaxed dining, there’s also an “adorable” brasserie downstairs.

The food was delicious, the presentation of the food and the quality was marvelous. I don't have anything bad to say about the meal and the alcohol. I will come back to have a awesome meal again. However, I am French and I was expecting way more about the services and the people working there. I was a little bit sad to not see anyone French there, I am sure that so many good French waitress that would love to be in the united States as a French server. But that's my personal preference, whether or not the people are French, I'm not going to judge the restaurant by that. But, we have been very disappointed by our waiter, since the beginning. I am a woman and he makes me feel like I was only a woman. I felt very uncomfortable with this person, I didn't spend a good time with his presence. I invited my husband for his birthday (whoah crazy a woman who is going to pay for his lover, very crazy). When we ordered the house aperitif the waiter ask my husband if I was 21. We are young and I don't have any problem of showing my ID but the fact that he asked my husband for my age I was feeling belittled. I told him directly that he could ask me my age, I felt very bad about it and all the meal was uncomfortable. Also, he had a very strong accent that normally is not a problem for my husband and I but we can see that he is used to repeat the same text with all the clients, he knew everything by heart so it was very hard to focus on everything. What I like about French service is that waiter are incredibly respectful, discreet and so polite. This waiter was disrespectful towards me like he wasn't looking at me when he was explaining something. He had a very strange way on doing stuff who was making my husband and I uncomfortable. The service on this kind of restaurant is very important almost important as the food.

Wonderful! Dinner for 5 was just about $700 and worth it. The staff was fantastic. I was worried about that I would not be 'sophisticated' enough for dinner here, but the staff was kind without being condescending or arrogant. The restaurant is elegant and romantic and still friendly to small groups and families. Men - wear a jacket at minimum, a suit is better, a tie is great - no denim.

L'Auberge is quite an experience. Four friends meet today for an extended lunch, over 3 hours. Never rushed, the low noise level allowed easy conversation. The food was truly outstanding. For Sunday brunch, the menu is fixed price, not cheap, but not break the bank expensive. Ideal for any special occasion.
