Decent French in NOVA?

Anywhere decent- I'm in the mood for some decent french food. I've been to that place on King Street in Alexandria, which I didn't think was good at all. I'm trying to remember the name, but it's been family owned for years. Price isn't really an issue, but I want this to be a somewhat relaxing dinner.

  1. I haven't been, but everyone I know who has, has liked it is Bistro 123 in Vienna, Va.

      I'll second Bistro 123. I've been there a couple of times.

        I second La Côte D'Or / Bistro des Célestins...being just off 66 (exit 69) and a very reasonable walk from the East Falls Church metro, I would consider it easily accessible from DC.

      2. La Refuge on Washington St. in Old Town Alex

        1. Le Petite Mistral in McLean is now Le Mistral, having moved down the street to a new, more elegant and larger location. Ate there last month and was pleased with both food and service.

          1. La Bergerie in Old Town on Lee Street between Cameron and Queen Street. A classic, real French restaurant where they still prepare caesar salad tableside and has impeccable, discreet service. The real deal.
