We sat on the ground floor (the restaurant has a Japanese room downstairs. Both rooms were full when we were there), simply because we dislike to remove our shoes. We had each, this is compulsory, the tasting menu at 98 euros each. This was quite remarkable and both of us enjoyed everything except a single dish and this had more... More

I had my dinner downstairs in a traditional japanese environment... More

You can easily miss this outstanding restaurant as it has a very unassuming facade on a small street. But you would be missing one of the best meals in Paris. Degustation of modern dishes fresh from the market (and the fertile mind of the chef) with a unique use of Japanese flavors. Taste and presentation among the best i ever... More

I am afraid that I ate something at the restaurant that seriously disagreed with me and I was violently sick on the street just after leaving - which is a real shame. The restaurant is small but excellent inside. The service is very good and I considered the selection I made was value for money - despite my being ill.

My daughter and I had lunch at Sola in June. It was absolutely perfect and well worth the care we took making the reservation. Lunch, from our point of view, is an extraordinary value. The beautiful procession of delicious courses, the flawless and friendly service, atmosphere, pleasant guests around us... all just right. This is a marvelous place for that... More

It is one of the rare cases to find a perfect French Japanese fusion , the menu is perfect from start to end and leaves you with a notion of happiness. The location is clearly a misfit and not in line with the modernity of the food

What a wonderful meal. Not really a Japanese/French fusion fare, but define Japanese ingredients and flavouring influence. Maybe fusion with a small “f”. There was no menu or a la carte card. Only one set “menu” available that day based on what the chef wished to prepare. Nothing else available – so you place yourself in the hands of the... More
