Great food and great service

Just booked this restaurant again for our third trip to Paris. The food is great, the staff are fun and the service is excellent. Chez Fernand is always on our list when we go to Paris. Worth the time.

Went tonight about 8 p.m. On recommendation of Hotel Dauphine. Very cute restaurant with nice atmosphere. Dinner for 4. No reservation, but we were seated very quickly and the place filled up within minutes. The service was fast, friendly and informative but not rushed. We shared escargot and artichoke for appetizers. So good! Perfectly cooked and flavorful. For dinner we... More

Our hotel recommended this for good french cuisine, but in a casual atmosphere. It was right around the corner and easy to get to. i had the roasted chicken and my husband had the seafood bisque and a duck entree. The portion sizes were good. Everything tasted good, the staff was friendly and attentive.

We were looking forward to our first meal back in Paris and although the food was average+ and the service was friendly, we were disappointed by the pace of the delivery. We were in and out in less than 40 minutes, and that's stretching it. Two courses (soup and main course) arrived with perhaps five minutes between. Seventy odd euros.... More

I have been coming to Chez F for years and it has never failed to impress. However, on this visit the food was bland, one dish arrived undercooked and not even an apology. Sorry to say, they have lost the plot

My husband and I were here in August and had a very special meal. This time in March not quite as good. The service was warm and welcoming, however, the wait staff was over whelmed. The foies gras and escargot were very good but our main courses (veal chop and pork chop) were over cooked. The dessert of chocolate lava... More

We passed this restaurant looking for another restaurant that had no availability. We had to wait about 40. minutes for a table but it was well worth it. The food was incredible without being overpriced. Authentic Parisian bistro atmosphere.

Five Years ago we discovered this darling place. We loved it so much we went there two times in one week. It was quintessential French. We told several friends and family it was a must! We knew it was On our short list of must go to places on our recent trip. Unfortunately, it was a classic tale of nothing... More

...at our hotel, this tiny, out of the way, traditional French restaurant exceeded the expectations engendered by its TripAdvisor ranking. Good food, good service, great atmosphere!
