The food was very good, but we were a bit disappointed with the overall experience. We had gone as a special occasion, but compared to other dining experiences we've had, it wasn't so special. Yes, the food was good but nothing was outstanding. The presentation was not as lovely as we've seen in another Japanese-French fusion restaurant (in a different... More

You will like that plates change everyday depending the fresh products available. Food (mostly fish) is amazing, very elegant and manimalist. Plates and presentation are brilliants. Wines proposed are young (2014) but perfectly chosen. You must go.

My boyfriend and I booked this restaurant in advance for lunch as a special treat for our weekend in Paris. We sat downstairs in the Japanese area. The slippers they give you to wear were so comfy after walking around Paris! I felt sitting downstairs made the experience feel very special. We chose the lunch menu which consisted of amuse...

Well, I walked in never having eaten at a Japanese restaurant before. I knew that I dislike seaweed and that I love sashimi and tempura vegetables. The only reason I went there—a Japanese/French restaurant in Paris—is because the photos of their food on Trip Adviser were so beautiful they just drew me in. I sat on the main floor at... More

Despite it's spartan appearance, Sola is a wonderful blend of French and Japanese fusion cuisine (focusing more on the Japanese side). The food was beautifully executed and the wine was very good. The only down side was that the bill was steep and the drink service a bit slow.

Excellent Japanese version of French gourmet cooking, well deserving the high accolades. Every dish was enjoyable, yet you leave the restaurant almost weightless, ready to take on the city!

Service was excellent. Presentation wise everything looked like art. Although the smaller tasting menu was plentiful I would easily go back for the larger tasting menu anytime. All staff new what they were doing. I would recommend getting a reservation, this place is very busy. My favorite dish was the pork. So tender and so flavorful. Will definitely visit Sola... More
