Simply the best🍷By far the best choice for a special occasion. My personal feeling is that there is no need to order any $$ extras, the standard price fix menu is perfectly delicious!

We're long-time fans of the Auberge restaurant, but decided it was time to try the Auberge's (relatively) new(ish) bistro located downstairs from the main restaurant. It's open for brunch on weekends, but is usually open only in the evenings. The bistro is slightly more casual--...More

Dressy casual will be ok. You will see most men in sports coats. It is not a pretentious place but the clientele tend to dress out of tradition and respect for quality of the place
