Superb and Excellent experience

The best restaurant you could hope for, starting with the food and ending with the entire experience. It is a must for every visitor to Paris. Real authentic.

Exceptional customer service. The staff were knowledgable, attentive and efficient. The food is capped by the distinctive taste of freshly made food. Dish presntations have a simple and artistic quality that is visibly savory.

Wonderful lunch on a day trip to Paris, meal was excellent, the staff understood gluten free perfectly, and when I was too full to eat the petit fours, the chef wrapped them for me to eat later. We had a lovely chat with the chef ( le petit Bordelaise himself) at the end of the meal, and look forward to... More

Great location and lovely decor inside. Staff was very professional and obliging. Lamb was amazing and the Pigeon was very good for the first time to try it ever. Peach desert was great with 3 different textures. The chef came to greet us and have a little chat. A bit pricey for quite simple food but well executed and we... More

We had a reservation for 8 for NYE dinner. The food was delicious and well timed and priced very reasonably. I would like to go back durning a normal dinner where, hopefully, the atmosphere is a little more relaxed and not as hectic.

We have visited on more than one occasion and although the last occasion the meal was not entirely to my partners taste and the restaurant was quite I would and have recommended Le Petit Bordelais to friends. We found the food to be excellent quality and flavour and great value for central Paris

I have eaten at Le Petit Bordelais twice and I left both times questioning why this restaurant receives such a high rating from the Trip Advisor participants and questioning “l’addition”. Over the past year I have eaten in 60+ restaurants (primarily bistros) in Paris. I could be classified as a “foodie” as I have spent a considerable amount of time... More

Visited restaurant a few evenings ago towards the end of a 17 day trip to France. This was the worse meal I had during the entire trip. I had the tasting menu, including the wine. The fish was not as fresh as it should have been. I periodically got a whiff of ammonia, meaning the fish was on its way... More

First off let me start out by saying that this restaurant out did every expectation I had. I made a reservation about 2 days before the night I was planning dinner and didn't have any problems. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and they seated us right away. The serving staff was top notch. Very pleasant, and although... More

My husband and I went here for a prixe fixe dinner and had a very enjoyable experience. The owner was friendly and attentive and came over to our table several times to check on our experience.
