Setting above wine store is nice. Service is really good. Wine choice is as can be expected diverse and good. Food quality does not meet expectations; nothing special nothing surprising. Very busy place. Reservations recommended for lunch during week. Clearly a place for business lunches.

This is the place if you are looking for world wines and of course French wines. They ship all over the world, are very competitive, and connoisseur

Staff is friendly, and they really understand the wines they sell. They could not be more helpful! Wines range from lower prices to some special Grand Cru wines at big prices. There is a huge selection! Loved the store.

I've never written a negative review for Tripadvisor before because I prefer to share positive experiences and forget the bad ones. But we were so looking forward to visiting the revamped Nicolas and so disappointed I had to share. We discovered Nicolas at the Madeline many years ago and it was always great - hidden away upstairs, full of locals,... More

I have just had lunch here. The food and wine were fine - I chose the menu du jour so did not expect more than a decent lunch. However, they were making a film in the restaurant at the time, without a thought to either the privacy or the comfort of their customers. The director wandered around placing his little... More

We recently spent a week in Paris, and this was our favorite place to eat and drink. Great selection and atmosphere, with a wonderful view. The lunch special is great value, and for four euros corkage charge you can buy a bottle in the store and drink it at your table. Don't miss this place!
