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

When the locals pack a small restaurant in Paris you know that the food has got to be good and the prices reasonable. Sure enough, that is exactly what I found at Au Sauvignon. I ordered the round buttered toasted bread with Norwegian smoked salmon on top and a glass of Morgon wine. One of the best lunch stops near... More

If you need a place to snack and sip some wine before most restaurants open at night or during the dinner hours when you're not ready for a three or four course meal, try this friendly wine bar. My wife and I have had good wine and fine cheese and bread (from Poilane) perhaps a half dozen times over the... More

The area has countless Patisseries to chose from but this was excellent. The waiter was, at first, a little distant and unapproachable, but when he realized that we were just happy to be there, he lightened up, engaged us in both French and English. The patio is popular, perfect to watch the world go by. The wines are average, the... More

Located rue de sevres, close to le BonMarche, the most "parisian chic" department store in Paris, this small cafe/bar, is perfectly located. At lunch time,choose one of the delicious sandwich with Cantal or tasty charcuterie ( ham, rillettes, ...) or a plate of half marinated salmon. Quality is excellent, all is served with Poilane Bread, and a smile. Service is... More

Excellent wines, charming service, authenticity. Love it and have done for over 30 years! The cheese plates make a light, delicious snack and go beautifully with the carefully chosen wines. This is a cafe but delightful!

Let me start by saying that Au Sauvignon is not a restaurant, not even a bistrot as several fellows treated it. No! If I had to rate it as a restaurant, my grade would be very poor. Actually the house is a very nice "bar a vins", with easy to drink wines by the galss, good beers and excellent finger... More

Very friendly. Great place to sit, drink and watch the world go by. Relax, order the cheese plate and mixed sandwiches and make some friends.
