You get what you pay for. Over the top prices for an over the top experience. Stunning, multi million dollar dining room. Professional and attentive but not stuffy waitstaff. No detail overlooked. We were walking by the river before the lunch and my wife had...on flats. They were whisked away into a velour bag while she put on her heels. A small tableside stool for her purse. Of course. Meal was indeed three Michelin stars. And enough dessert for another lunch. Just fabulous.More

Beautiful, classy spot. You pay for what you get, and you will pay top dollar for a truly incredibly experience. The service was impeccable, and the food was absolutely amazing. Every dish we ordered was flavorful and perfect - temperature, pairings, aesthetics etc. I loved...the dishes they brought before and after our courses also. The decor in the spot is gorgeous of course. Do not come here unless you are very hungry, you will of course leave stuffed whether you order the tasting menu or not.More

Enjoyed dinner here on a whirlwind trip to Paris. As guest at the Four Seasons, it was an easy elevator ride down to dinner. My friend described the dining room as the most beautiful room she has ever seen. The service was impeccable as we...enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairings. It is my sincere wish that everyone could at least once in their life enjoy the kind of meal that we had. It was perfectly portion, exquisitely paired with wine that enhanced each bite, and served with impeccable service and just a touch of humor by wonderful, wonderful staff. I hope to dine here again once the world recovers from the current coronavirus crisis. It was an unforgettable experience.More

Lunch at Le Cinq. Palace ambiance, yet approachable food and fantastic staff. From the maitre d'hotel to the sommelier, waiter, assistant waiter and everyone else, everyone was engaging and kind, enhancing our experience and make our lunch absolutely memorable. Food didn't disappoint. The four course...lunch was exciting and well paced, with additional dishes in-between. Wine list was surprisingly approachable. 2015 St Emilion for €75 was an excellent choice amid a list of 6,000 bottles. Favorite dish was the lamb. Offals were fantastic, so nice to see these parts put at the center of the dish. Sommelier offered us a glass of porto with dessert. Placed at perfect temperature (14 degrees celsius), it was exquisite and a perfect end to a fantastic culinary dream. Chef Christian Le Squer who heads this Four Seasons restaurant came twice to check on us. Very kind.More

Fantastic service. Magical interior. The best wine list ever, they have wines that you won’t be able to find easily. The food was well presented and delicious. Such peaceful place as well.

I cannot express enough what a perfect experience we encountered at LE Cinq. The food was of utmost perfection. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable in a very easy manner. The ambience is fit for a queen, and the flowers in the hotel and restaurant are...simply gorgeous. Wonderful.More

1st class food and service from start to end. This place is amazing, the staff are lovely and friendly and extremely attentive. I felt like a million dollars in this place. Nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this place and would return...in a heart beat. Thank you for making our time special.More

We’ve very much enjoyed lunches at Le Cinq every time we’ve visited Paris over the past few years and we were really looking forward to returning. I can only say we were disappointed this time. The service in particular seemed disjointed with multiple different waiters...and we didn’t feel ‘looked after’ at all. The amuse-bouche selection was delicious, the marinated scallop slices were nice, the lukewarm egg white soup was, to me, inedible (I only had a spoonful, the waiter wasn’t concerned at all), my main of pilaf rice was a smallish triangle of rice without much flavour (though I was told it contained truffles and it had a little foie gras sauce). All up, even with lots of offers of breads and some extras like chocolates and pre dessert, it wasn’t a menu to ‘celebrate’ the winter season (eg lukewarm soup, cold marinated scallops) and no real main course. I didn’t leave hungry but it was a very unexciting and unsatisfying lunch.More

We had lunch here as a family of four in late December. The decor of restaurant and, of course the hotel, was quite stunning, elegant and seasonally festive. The service we received while dining was excellent from beginning to end, although I must say at...times we felt that there were too many different servers flocking our table. The meals, however, were utterly disappointing, and even upsetting in retrospect. We opted for the à la cart items: the sea bass for my wife, the lobster for me, the spaghetti for the two little ones to share. A couple of small plates and breads came out while we enjoyed the champagnes we ordered and waited for the entrees to arrive. We took the sommelier’s recommendation for the wine pairings with the sea bass and lobster. Our kids, being 6 and 3 years old, couldn’t care less that we were at a fine establishment. They ate the spaghetti with grins and smirks because it didn’t look or taste anything like their usual spaghetti dish. My wife and I tasted the spaghetti and thought it was overpowered by the cheeses and shaved truffles. We were underwhelmed. I didn’t taste the sea bass but my wife thought it was”ok” and to me the presentation of the dish was a D- because the creamy sauce drowned the fish and made it disappeared—I guess fish belong UNDER the water (i.e. creamy sauce). The whole dish looked like a soup. Now the upsetting part: the lobster was nicely presented and the dish was creative but some lobster pieces were bland while most others were so wildly salty I could hardly swallow them. I came so close to sending the dish back but didn’t want to cause a scene, now regretting that I didn’t. I did not finish the dish and declined the desserts. This had been one of the few M* restaurants we’ve had the privilege to visit. Le Cinq was a bust.More
