My wife and I are avid travelers but have eaten at a Michelin starred restaurant only once or twice. Actually we do not much like formal dining, but when I read online about the history of this place, coupled with what appeared to be very reasonable prices for a Two-Star joint, we decided to spring for a Friday lunch. I'm... More

Small, perfect, luxurious dining. Great, ancient atmosphere. Ravioli loaded with foie gras and lobster worked perfectly. Signature game pie was exquisite. Service personally attentive and friendly.

One of the best restaurant visits in Paris. We do visit Paris like 4-5 times per year and this restaurant was for us a great new experience. The focus was on food and in it's ingredients which means super quality and fresh performance, including seasonal dishes. Also extremely well appreciating the French cuisine at it's best. The service met really... More

The dinner menu was calm. It's like classical music, not trendy pop. 2014 Francois Villard Saint-Joseph Poivre et Sol, Rhone was paired with dinner.

We were there yesterday and spent a nice lunch time. Since non of us speaks French, waiter explain their lunch options with English. We ordered 5 course daily menu, without knowing what exactly including in this lunch set. And we get lovely truffle butter puff as welcome dish, then warming cream soup and egg soufflé as our starters. Main course... More

Magnificent restaurant. We had the 9 course degustation. The problem was only eight courses were served! The service is exceptional - attentive and friendly from beginning to end... and as another reviewer has commented, not at all pretentious. The food is French through and through... but with a subtle modern twist. The raviolo with lobster and foie gras was amazing.... More

We reserved this restaurant where we go once a year since its opening in 1996. First the welcome from the Hostess and staff is very warm, they are all so friendly and professional but we have a soft spot for the hostess at the door. It is not snob or pretentious. It is very friendly and classy. The quality of... More

I picked this restaurant after looking at the Michelin starred restaurants. Charming atmosphere, very traditional. Seemed to be a lot of regulars. Service was great - the waiter was delightful and the chef was watching everything like a hawk. My husband has celiac disease and needs a gluten-free meal. Sometimes that means we can't have the Degustation Menu, but no... More
