I had the pleasure of organising a group lunch for 17 people. I was dealt with by delightful staff. And when the big day came, it just rolled on as though on wheels! Everything was perfect. The service was top-class, the food was equal to the service !!

The biggest issue at this restaurant came within moments of sitting down. We were offered a reservation at Drouant at 2:30. We were not late, but within a few minutes of being seated, they were asking for our order. We had planned to spend a lot of money and some time on the meal being that it is a very... More

In a great atmosphere and with excellent service we were promptly accomodated to our table although we had not reserved in advance. As I mentioned the service was top-notch, the stuff was highly professional and very friendly. I was a little bit disappointed by the food, especially the main courses, rather below expectations. The delicious sorbet selections at the end... More

Let's begin by saying that the service from beginning to end was wonderful. The food simply outstanding. Began with a warm artichoke salad split with my wife. Tangy, fresh and a great beginning to the meal. I had the duck, cooked perfectly. Ordered the mac and cheese as a side. A must have! My wife ordered steak tartare. Great choice.... More

We have had some great meals in Paris — but this place is the best. It is not the go-to place for fussy gourmet dining. But if you want wholesome food prepared with unique style and taste (and nicely presented) — look no further. The service was first rate — and the head waiter, Hamid, went out of his way... More

We ate here as a group whilst on business in Paris. We had a set menu which we had chosen beforehand. The starter was fish and was lovely. We had duck as a maincouse which was beautiful, cooked to perfection - no mean feat when you are cooking for 14 people. The sweet was a lemon tart - again lovely.... More

We were staying at the Westin Vendome and the concierge recommended Drouant. It is a classic Paris restaurant that offers excellent food and service in a beautiful surrounding. The menu choices were excellent as was the wine list. The service was attentive, but not obtrusive and the waiter was able to discuss each dish and make recommendations. We arrived for... More

we had the pleasure of dining here recently. The decor was elegant, as soon as we saw it we were expecting a great meal and we weren't disappointed. The food was outstanding and the portions were larger than any French restaurant we had been to. We had trouble finishing, which is rare in Paris. The service was paced perfectly and... More

We went there with our family but I can also recommend it for romantic candlelight dinner. They propose a special menu for children in there high class style for a very good price. It was the 4th time we went there and we always appreciated it. So will we in futur.
