Our first time in Paris for our wedding anniversary and this meal did not disappoint. Food was beautiful, owner/chef came and spoke to us several times, recommended wine and was very pleasant. A bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. One of the best meals we've ever had. A perfect introduction to French cuisine.

My family and I went here on our last night in Paris. We couldn't have picked a better place! Our sons and I picked the tasting menu (mine and the older two with wine pairing, while the teenager had his without wine). My husband ordered directly from the menu. We were greeted by the chef, who explained that the menu... More

We was here in June 2010, I couldn't choose an older date with the app. The food here was delicious and the crew was so nice. I told them to tell the chef that the food was great after we finished and he came out and talked to us :) Even after 4 yrs I still remember my visit there.

We loved le Petit Bordelaise so much during our last Paris vacation that we had to visit again. We were not disappointed. The chef is truly gifted and creates delicious innovative meals. The waiters are very professional and they take excellent care of the guests while remaining in the background. We had our teenage granddaughters with us and they loved... More

I brought my parents tot his restaurant for their 40th anniversary and it was every bit as special as I hoped. We ordered the 5 course degustation with matching wines - we actually received 7 plate including small appetiser of beef terrine and some tasty tiny cakes at the end. The service was impeccable and the chef came to talk... More

I have raved about this restaurant ever since I first ate here a couple of years ago. So much so, I started to wonder if I was becoming a little bit biased in my reviews. It's just over a month since we last visited, this time, I was in Paris on business and I came here with guests who were... More

Our hotel recommended this place and the reviews are enthusiastic but what a disappointment. We eat out a lot and we looking for a fancy restaurant for my wife's birthday. We arrived at 7:40 pm to a near empty restaurant that never filled more than a few tables. We wanted to try the tasting menu but don't like foie gras... More

Reasonable nice place, with friendly staff and a colourful decor. We both had the tasting menu which was a bit of a hit and miss. The foie grass was not really in our taste. Way too rich compared to others we had elsewhere. The veal, cheese and chocolate was good, but not really a standout. The best part was the... More

I had the lobster terrine. I don't know what salty cat food tastes like, but I imagine the taste is very similar. There were only a very few sparse morsels of lobster in the terrine and the saltiness was so intense I had to continually intersperse drinking water with every few bites. For dessert I had the caramel apple over... More
