14€ for a glass of champagne is a bit steep, even with a superb vue of the tour eiffel. However, the champagne was cool, the service pleasant, though not terribly professional, and it was a good place to have a drink before the theatre.

I used to go to Chez Francis quite a bit a couple of years ago, as it's so conveniently located for a nearby concert venue. I regret, however, going back to it -- largely because the staff are very rude, and sometimes get the clients they deserve. Our (recently French) waiter seemed rather unhappy that we wanted to eat, and... More

With a view of the Eiffel Tower if you sit outside, and good food, I would definitely recommend this pricey little place if you are not easily sticker-shocked. Flavien, our waiter, wasa gracious server and eager to please. My daughter ordered the Linguini Vongole (clams) served with a butter and garlic sauce. (28 euro) My husband ordered the Oeuf Benedictine... More

If you are not in a hurry, this place has amazing night views of the Eiffel Tower. It gets very busy and it appears they may be short staffed. It can just be that at sunset, everyone wants to be in the best spot. We did not have a reservation and the maitre'd found us a nice table for 2... More

OK, maybe a bit of a place to be seen but none the less an excellent spot for lunch or dinner - even though they open at 8:00AM. Make reservations if possible to get a seat that looks out to the Eiffel Tower and arrange the time for sundown to have your own spectacular light-show. As for the menu -... More

Sadly, we try to be polite but look for many options before eating here. Great decor but food and service is far from acceptable.

The meals we got were pretty good, but service was not ok for the price. When you charge 25 euro for a burger you want to make sure that you hire professional waiters, i.e. waiters which do not push you when they pass by. And even if they do, at least they apologize. Dear management, am I right??
