I visited this place with a couple of friends and we were so happy to be there. The food is great and the price isn't that high. I suggest you not to go without a reservation though, especially during the weekend, because it's always full of people

Alex made this the most fun experience, guiding us through food choices, wine & making this a fun experience for newcomers to Alexandre's with his fun attitude and attentiveness. This will be the first restaurannt we go to on a return trip to Paris.

The fondue idea is amazing and the food is delicious. The staff is amazing, patient and helpful. Definitely recommend this place to everyone. Not a place to miss. P.S. They take reservations only. so make sure you reserve before you go.

Told by waiter "I'll find you a table". Wait 10 minutes, to ask again and told the same thing. By the end I asked him if he give us an approximation so that we don't waste his or our time waiting around his restaurant, so if in the next 5 minutes there are no spaces we are going to leave.... More

Well, that was an experience. Calling in order to book a table, you are warmly welcomed with a guy who says you that you are annoying him with your call. Then, head to the restaurant, queuing for 20 minutes, with people who are trying to "steal" a spot. Then we asked politely that a reservation was made, and the manager... More

The best place to have fondue in Paris. You can have either meat or cheese. Both are good. Be careful with the price, as it is not per fondue but per person. It's not really clear in the menu. Apart from that, a good and different place

My wife and I went to Alexandre restaurant in August. We really enjoyed dinning there. Alex who manages the restaurant and also gives service to customers is a friendly guy. We ordered cheese fondue which was perfect and we cooked beef, chicken, mushroom ... on stone. I strongly recommend this restaurant when you visit Paris. P.S. we did not know... More

Waited long time because they forgot to take our reservation, despite calling twice during the day. Instead of offering a spot, they let 15 local people in before us, which of course filled the entire place. After that, owner started to blame us, mock female friends and finally even faced phisically my friend... Luckily no fight started. Probably worst experience... More

Terrible experience. Extremely unpolite. We reserved by phone and they lost the reservation. We wait 1 hour outside while receiving offenses for not being French. They mock girls with us for not speaking good French. Unbelievable. Food was average and the service was one of the worst in my life.

Thank Emmanuele B
