On the side of Palace Garnier, you would expect a great restaurant: we found instead a canteen. The decor was disappointing, food was disappointing, the service was disappointing, the choice of the menu was disappointing, the wine was disappointing... perhaps it was an unlucky evening; maybe I'll try it another time.

We had a very pleasant lunch. Food wax good and not too pricey. Service was also quick and the whole experience was enjoyable If any recommendation don't sit near the sidewalk if you don't like cigarette smoke. As with most cafés in Paris the sidewalk tables are for smokers.

After seeing a documentary on tv about the renovation and design of this restaurant i wanted to go and experience it during a trip to Paris. On a friday evening just a few table have been occupied and during the whole evening the restaurant didn't get filled to my biggest disappointment. The guy on service didn't let us finish our...

The food is ok, very standard, the decoration is modern, different from what I thought for a restaurant in Opera.

A friend made a reservation here, and I must admit I was a bit unenthusiastic after reading some reviews. However, after a truly superb New Year's Eve meal -- all four of us loved it -- I'm now a fan. Lovely service, very sexy ambiance, and very well prepared and presented food. A great culinary experience in what might seem... More

This is a very good option to have a romantic dinner after seeing an opera/ballet at Opera Garnier. Service was efficient and food was very good. The place has a modern decoration.

We stumbled in after touring the Garnier and decided to try some traditional French Cuisine (I had the foie gras). The waiter was very kind to us and the food and atmosphere were just wonderful. It's definitely on the expensive side, but wonderful!

We went to this restaurant after a ballet function. We did not have reservation. Order artichoke soup and veggie eclair as entrance. Salmon and duck as main dishes and a opera cake as dessert. Entrances were good. Side dishes in the salmon was sweet potato relish. Actually I think it was taro root instead of sweet potato. It was not... More

Located in the east façade of the Opera Garnier, we stopped on a cold winters day for hot chocolate but were truly amazed by the modern interior design and soft undulations of the white mezzanine floor and large glass fronted windows. A place not to be missed to avoid the shopping frenzy outside in a truly outstanding building. By the... More

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.
