New Year's Eve, we did not have reservations and they were full. But they rearranged things and gave us a table for 2 hours. They never rushed us and we felt welcome. The host and the staff chatted with us and were very attentive. The venison was outstanding and the profiterolles excellent. One of the best New Year eve dinner... More

The classics remain but Chef is talented and I tried two dishes that weren't on the menu before. There was the rock fish perfect in a creamy fennel For an appetizer there was a wonderful smoked trout and house made gravalax in a dill sauce with sweet beet strings. The grand marnier soufflé is always perfect. The ambience is always... More

This is a lovely French bistro-style restaurant. The environment was very pleasant, the service quick and friendly, yet still relaxed so that we did not feel rushed in the slightest. Most important, the food was delicious. My wife and I both had salads, two of the evening specials, wine and desert, and we were pleased with everything. We live nearby... More

We ate at Chaumiere following a recommendation, Georgetown is by all accounts full of restaurants but we were all happy with our choice. The food was well prepared, lots of choice, and very tasty. We had a good mix of starters, snails, soup, and the salmon. Mains were beef, scollops, and a salmon. All lovely. Wine pretty good, but not... More

If I could eat a little of every dish I would; all so difficult choosing what you want from all these succulent dishes and if you are like me liking many dishes you are in trouble. Though, not to miss the sole out of this world, and as an appetizer the escargots de Bourgogne or the cheese soufflé. A must... More

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful lunch today. Everything was just great - food, ambiance and service. The bread was fresh and crunchy and the salads were innovative and wonderful, Their fish stew rocked - although it could have used a few more clams. The soufflés provided and finish to a very fine meal. Bottom line - I would go... More

The trout, lobster bisque and french onion soup were very good however the Fricassée du Pêcheur was extremely salty so much so that it was barely eatable, and the Cassoulet "Toulousain" was also very disappointing. Service was just okay and we were seated upstairs and that location has absolutely no atmosphere.

Excellent food and service in a warm country atmosphere. The menu is classic French, the nFricassee is outstanding and the Cassoulet is the Gold Standard (served on Thursday -- order ahead as they do run out). Other outstanding dishes are the country Pate and the Souffle Grand Marnier. The wine list tends to the French and is more than satisfactory.... More

Although I have been to Washington (Georgetown) several times in recent years I had not been to La Chaumiere in many, many years. The food and service was just as good as I remembered. Many French classics that were very good----escargot, cassoulet. Good bottle of wine at a reasonable price.
