Very charming restaurant

Overpriced poorly cooked food. No atmosphere. Long wait for being asked for any kind of service i.e wold you like an aperitif and had to request a wine menu! Monkfish poached and overcooked and bland with tomato purée on the top. Scallops were also bland petit fours burn't. Overall a disappointing meal which was vastly overpriced!!

We came to Paris to celebrate my wife's birthday, more to the point we came to Le Petit Bordelais to celebrate my wife's birthday, as we did last year. This a wonderful restaurant, with friendly staff and a very dedicated chef. The menus change regularly and the food is always excellent. I had the crab cannelloni to start, unbelievable, it... More

Had intended to visit this restaurant for a long time (because of TripAdvisor reviews), the limiting factor was always that there were so many great restaurants within walking distance around the hotel where we always stay in Paris and this restaurant was a short taxi ride away. At last, at the beginning of February we took the taxi ride. We... More

On a whim a friend and I decided to go to Paris for lunch, from London. We booked a mid morning flight then realised that most restaurants in France stop serving around 2pm. As we could not go to the restaurant of our choice, we decided to visit this one. It was wonderful. The foie gras as a starter was... More

We had the sample menu with wine and even my partner who doesn't normally like wine was loving it. Small romantic with great attention to the food and guests. I... More

I reserved online for Valentines day, which also happens to be my girlfriends birthday with the intention of it being a special evening. The maitre'D then refused to seat us, saying they were full up and that the chef had emailed me and I needed to respond to the email. There was no such email. Not only was our evening... More

Very tasty food in a modern style and excellent service. The choice on the menu, while not extensive, was enough to give everyone something that they liked. The depth of flavour showed a really professional chef was at work.

We were referred this small, out of the way place by our concierge for a last minute dinner reservation. The chef/owner came out and visited with us, sharing his personal philosophy of how food should be thought of, sourced, prepared, and enjoyed. It was clear he made it his personal mission to elevate each ingredient to it's best. The wines... More

The meals were tasty and the service was excellent, but I was hoping for a little more. Think i may have been spoiled by the excellent lunch I had earlier in the day. Started with amous bouche that was a pate, but it was too much given the starter was foie gras. The foie gras was in a sauce and... More
