 I enjoyed the meal and the beer tastings. I didn't think there was much to the demonstration actually. He didn't really show much. Thanks,

Culinary Class 

5 stars

 Outstanding demonstration. Chef Jacques is a skilled chef and a kind and engaging person. He injected humor and personal anecdotes into his presentation. The food and service were tremendous, just as I have come to expect and always receive when I dine at L'Auberge Chez Francois. I am not a wine drinker (I am allergic), so Jacques and his wait staff readily substituted a special beer drink that I love. They are eager to please and always succeed.

DINNER WITH CHEF JACQUES 

5 stars

 WE HAD A LOVELY EVENING WITH A DELICIOUS 4 COURSE MEAL STARTING WITH APPETIZERS ( I GUESS THAT WOULD BE THE 5TH COURSE). EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS AND CHEF JACQUES EXPLAINED HOW HE HAD PREPARED EACH COURSE. WINE WAS SERVED WITH EACH COURSE AND EXPLAINED HOW IT WAS CULTIVATED ( CALIF. WINE THE DISTRIBUTORS WERE THERE TO TELL ABOUT THEIR WINE. THE OTHER GUESTS WERE VERY NICE AND WE HAD INTERESTING CONVERSATION. THE SERVICE WAS OUTSTANDING. IT WAS A GOOD EVENING. WE WERE EXPECTING A DEMONSTRATION BUT IT WAS A WINE DINNER. LOVELY EVENING ANYHOW.

Perfection! 

5 stars

 L'Auberge is charming and authentic, the staff is warm and very professional, Chef Jacques is so personable and funny, and the food is absolutely, unbelievably wonderful! (check out the gorgeous patio area). The cooking demonstration was very 'up close and personable' paired with good wines and you get the recipes, too! Lots of 'regular customers' and no surprise, once you've eaten here, you'll be back. In fact, we've changed our fall vacation plans to travel through Alsace!
