This was our first experience with a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant so I had nothing to compare it to. Closest I’d come was back in 1982 when I was in the Navy and me and a buddy had a “Paycheck Dinner” ie blowing our entire paycheck...More

We enjoyed our lunch and wine pairing. Some dishes served warm, not hot! We travel extensively to Europe, eat in Michelin Star restaurants each trip, our conclusion was this did not measure up to most all Michelin Star restaurants in Paris. The restaurant is run...More

Recently visited Baumé for lunch and had an amazing meal. Food is deserving of their multiple Michelin stars, and the décor and service make it a unique experience. The restaurant is surprisingly dark, even during lunch the curtains completely block outside light. There's a hanging...More

Very nice food, well worth the Michelin star. Strange entree: very dark. Only 3 tables in the "main" dining room and 2 extra tables alongside the bar. Downside is the drinks: you can only have the wine pairing (or: multiple glasses of 1 of the...More

$1400 for two people for dinner eating pine needles and tofu even though they are shaped like olives is a scam. The value of the food actually consumed by each individual is probably about $20. Yes, the chef is an artist and the presentation of...More

Because this restaurant had two-Michelin stars, my family and I decided to try it out. Although we have eaten in several restaurants with at least two Michelin stars, we were very shocked with the exorbitant price ($280/person; with the cheapest wine pairing, approximately $500/person total)....More

Baume is a very small restaurant run by a husband(chef) and his wife(service). All courses were very good. This is a culinary experience not just a restaurant. Our dinner took about two hours. There are a few wine pairings to choose from. We did not...More
