It was ok

Cannot say that I would ever go back. My steak was well done. I asked for medium rare. Then I they sent out a rare steak. Guess thats better thrn well done. Just not what I asked for. Nothing notable about the place. It wasnt the worst...just not great.

A very attractive, if a little modern in decor given the famous building in which it is housed. i have dined there a few times and the cuisine is as modern as its surroundings. However, the service is friendly and the food is good.

The restaurant is very expensive. The food is good but services... If you come here without business dress but rather casual and with kids, staff looks at you a bit strange. As result you receive respective service. I doubt I will stop here again...

We were staying in the area, so had a cocktail reception and diner at this restaurant (Also behind the scenes tour at the Opera). Service was horrible and it was a very bad value. They crowded us into a very tight space for the cocktail reception, so that no one could make it to the bar or food table -... More

We enjoyed an excellent lunch, with great service. This restaurant is a wonderful haven from the noise and bustle in the heart of Paris. Food and wines were excellent. Not the cheapest place to have lunch, but well worth it for the quality of the experience.

Beautiful setting in the opera house was the only reason for the 3 star rating. The steak was average and cold, cooked to their "recommended" medium which I'm pretty sure was precooked, topped with store bought potato crisps, potatoes and gravy that came along were also luke warm. After we sat down, the server took at least 10 minutes to... More

Service started a little slow then picked up. Quality of food was great, Saint Emilion wine did the trick. Very good indeed

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
