Looking for a culinary experience rather than just delicious food, this a good place to come. Very caring and attentive, but relaxed service compared to French Michelin star venues. Particularly attractive during the week, the venue offers substantially reduced menu prices.

I hate to say it because I was thrilled to be going to lunch here, but I was quite disappointed. I don't even remember what I had. Absolutely nothing memorable. That isn't to say that everything isn't beautifully prepared. It is. And it is good....More

Lunch was great : fresh, origjnal and tasteful cuisine, nice wines, wonderful art deco setting. However, the price of it all (+ 200 EUR/person) heavily taints the experience. I don't think i will be back.

Senderens restaurant in Paris with stunning views toward the church of the Madeleine (Da Vinci Code fans take note) is one of the city���s most important restaurants, replete with history and full of exciting modernity. Originally opened in 1890, taken over and redecorated in true Art Deco style in the 1920���s, it operated as three-star Lucas Carton until 2005 when chef Alain Senderens gave back the stars, changed the name and transformed the d��cor and menu to create this stylish, informal restaurant. The beautiful Art Deco carvings remain, but now the tables are free of starchy linens, the service is relaxed and the dishes are innovative and exotic. Veal tartare with langoustines and rice noodles is stunning, as is the Racan pigeon stuffed with crab meat and poached in Qi Lan tea. The cellar remains a high-end experience. For elegant, sleek, exciting dining in the heart of town, Senderens will delight you.
