Been dining at L'Auberge since it opened in th eate 1970's. A recent lunch here demonstrated it has improved with age. Great venue and atmosphere, great service, great menu, great dishes and top wines. Patio dining in Spring is memorable. Highly Recommended,

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
