We spent an evening at this restaurant prior to "la boumette" party. The service was high in standard, every employee genuinely very kind. The food is very good and the menu selected with care, ie. not the usual standard dishes. Price-quality is ok. Average starter is 15€, main 30€ and desserts around 15€, too. Atmosphere is very good as well,... More

Lots of restaurant to choose from when you are in Paris. I was staying at Louvre Citadine and wandered up the street and walked a few blocks to see the Opera House. We noticed that they have a restaurant on the ground floor and we thought we would try it. We got shown our table right away, first impression was... More

This is a nice restaurant close to Opera Garnier. We had the Croque's. They were very good and our waiter was pleasant.

Sorry, but this was far below average. The restaurant was not very busy, but very understaffed. If I should highlight one positive thing, it must have been Our waiters positive attitude. However, that did not help much. After more than half an hour we received Our drinks and one of the glasses were broken (it took 10 minutes to change... More

We booked this restaurant before arriving in Paris not knowing anything of its reputation but that it was located next to the Opera House which we were attending that evening. From the time we walked through the door we were met with wonderful service and fabulous food within a beautiful environment. The waiter was informed that we were attending the... More

There are plenty of places in Paris with better food and much better service, but one goes to L'Opera to be seen. At first trying to order a drink was painful, with waiters wandering around looking in every direction other than at guests. However, once this was overcome things went relatively smoothly. However, the main benefit of being at L'Opera... More

We loved sitting outside the opera house for lunch. It is a beautiful setting even if it is near the street. The service was excellent, and the food delicious. However, the price was ridiculously expensive. If it weren't for the price, I would have given the restaurant the highest rating.

How did a simple slow-poached chicken and some vegetables make me say "Wow"? The ingredients were so well-respected, and prepared with such care. The chicken was delicate and moist, the vegetables a little al dente but not crunchy (with a nice puree to tie everything together). Preceding this was a seared tuna appetizer that was also quite wonderful. The decor... More

Refined French cuisine at its best. Excellent service, but not pretentious (which is rare in the neighborhood). Menu is not too elaborate but varied enough: Beef, Veal, Chicke, Fish, Shelfish, etc. 20-30 Eur for a main course. 10-15 Eur for a desert.
