La Petite Auberge - Review (longish)

Ellen | Jan 15, 2006 09:30 AM

Finally went to La Petite Auberge last night for dinner after reading so many good reviews. I'm glad to say the dinner lived up to the good reviews. We ordered the onion soup--I think they use chicken stock, and not the traditional beef stock. Not salty at all, plenty of onions, good bread, and great melted cheese. We then were served the salad with dressing which was delicious. We ordered the rack of lamb which we classed as one of the best we've had in the city. Presentation was lovely, being shown the full rack before carving. We ordered it medium rare, and it was perfect! Flavorful and soft too! The fries were delicious! The baby string beans were delicate, but kept their crunch. For dessert, we chose (pre-ordered) the grand marnier souffle--absolutely perfect. Again lovely presentation, being shown the entire souffle, before being taken away and split for us. Lovely texture and the grand manier sauce was delicious! I finished with a cup of decaf cappucino, that really was decaf (no trouble sleeping, but after such a big meal I probably wouldn't have had trouble with regular capuccino). The price for the two of us before tip was $100 which I think was great value. We plan on returning to try the price fixed menu which looks great too. Thank you for your positive reviews, because we've now found another great neighborhood restaurant. Service was fine, and we were seated promptly. Considering the bad weather, the restaurant was full. We could definitely see that there were plenty of regular customers.
