I reviwed this place in 2012, praising its convivial enviroment and its great fignerfood. Now things have changed with a new management, although in the hands of the same family. Altough keeping its traditional and excellent "casse-croutes", the house now has a much wider array of food, from oysters to hot dishes. Since ever the house has been a partnership... More

We spent a long lunch at this restaurant some years ago and perhaps not surprisingly, were unable to locate it on subsequent visits. We were pleased to find it again while visiting the large Bon Marche department store (its just across the road). This is a very, very cosy street-side restaurant, distinguished by having possibly the smallest toilet in Paris.... More

We didn't want a "meal," do we decided to go to Au Sauvignon for a few glasses of wine and a snack. My husband had foie gras, which he absolutely loved! I had a cheese sandwich, which was my mistake because I'm sure the food would have been better had I ordered differently. We each had three glasses of wine,... More

The Sauvignon's little snacks and sandwiches are very nice and made with very good products. Their wines are good (but expensive) and the service is highly professional. Very pleasant terrace. The ideal place for a snack when watching the busy smart croud passing by. The only thing is that one is too often surprised by the bill. At the end,... More

Very good place to experience "charcuterie" (pâtés or sausages, I liked the "andouille" and the "saucisse sèche") and cheese (saint-mercellin, for example) with a glass of wine as typical as what you are eating ; I liked the pouilly-fumé and the quincy ; a bit cramped, not cheap, but worth trying. And, if I may say so, unmistakably French.

the day i went to see the eiffel tower, then walk through St Germain, it was raining off and on, so i had to take periodic shelter in the numerous sidewalk cafe's scattered throughout the district. So i stopped here for a glass of Beaujolais, then a second one.....

Au Sauvignon is always a favourite place for an early-evening or late-evening drink and nibble in the warm weather. There is nothing better than a chilled glass of Sancerre and some wonderful cheese to relax at the end of the day.

We enjoyed our dinner. Not pretentious. The skate was delicious. My wife enjoyed her duck which was a different style than she was used to. Brits and French-we were the only Americans. Good service. I would definitely go back.

Loved this place particularly for its red sancerre wine unavailable in the USA. Loved this little snug wine bar. Great people watching and the food was yummy. Do stop here and grab a glass and a bite you won't regret this charmer. Wait tip you have to (for fun) squeeze into the tiny loo upstairs. Hilarious. I came back again... More
