My husband became a quenelles fanatic after a trip to Burgundy last year. So, he quickly made a reservation at Aux Lyonnais when we arrived in Paris this month. The room is lovely and very comfortable. The menu is typical Burgundian fare. The frisée avec...More

We visited on the recommendation of a American expat, and would return in a heartbeat. The Breton chicken was the most tender I have ever tasted. Excellent service, good wine list and easy menu made this a perfect meal. Bon Soir!More

A beautiful setting, quintessential Parisian with a casual feel. Service is excellent. The food is typical Lyonnais with great quenelles and the usual classics. A relatively pricey wine list. So if you are tired of the usual bistro standards, this would be a nice change....More

Along with a reasonably good red wine at $160, I asked the waiter what the specialties of the house might be. He suggested a dish for an appetizer (known in Paris as the entree) en croute with crayfish, and the dumplings as a main course,...More

Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…
