I had eaten here in the 1970s and have since carried around the memory that it was one of the nicest meals I ever had. I returned recently only to have that feeling reinforced. I ate inside one Sunday afternoon in early November. The whole atmosphere was very French and pleasant. My young waiter was very friendly and attentive. No... More

We did not eat here, we only stopped in for drinks. You really can't beat the view from their outdoor patio, it was a great place to stop in for a couple of drinks. We only got one round because the drinks were very expensive, but it was a nice break with a great view that we were willing to... More

Very over priced but the service did help. We had a table of 14 for dinner, and timing of meals was good. Avoid the scallops, very small serve. and the steak are a bit tough for the price. Dessert was awesome and ok wine list.

If it's location you're after you won't get much better than this with a view of the Eiffel Tower. However, the food and service was average. With hindsight we would have gone to a smaller restaurant as the food had clearly been prepared in advance and wasn't very good at all. The tables were ridiculously close together. The toilet had...

This is the where Rue George V meets the river in the 8th. Truly elegant surroundings, especially for a brasserie. But the prices match. Best dishes are the classics and seafood.

It is a place to eat well brasserie food. Their faux-filet, their fish, their steak tartar and its pommes-frites are always uniformely good. Service is fast, and the sole negative remark would be for a poor wine list , something other brasseries offer with broader choice.
