Loved this restaurant for the ambiance (quiet, candle lit, and romantic!), the food, and the service. Staff was very helpful, made great recommendations, and spoke English well. The food was excellent (especially the sauces) -- but go hungry, the portions are large! By far the best meal we had in Paris!

Yes lunch at terrasse of Café Drouant still a great Parisian Moment. Very professionnal and smiling service, but the food wass not a same level, 42€ for a Beef filet pepper sauce very regular and small (medium cook) Im not really enjoy with my choice... Delicious and rich dessert,wine by the glass just correct quality, expensive but not exceptional.

We have chosen Cafe Drouant for the last dinner of Paris vacation mostly because of location - just down the street from our hotel, and were not disappointed. It was a little chilly but the heating lamps made the outside seating, which was separated from the street by lovely live fence, very comfortable. Quite romantic setting. We had lamb and... More

A place where my wife had been before but a first for me. Unusually for Paris there is a vegetarian selection and the waiting staff are flexible when catering for vegetarians. A varied menu featuring some classic french dishes as well as a different daily plate of the day. A very good lunch, ideal for us.

Great restaurant in the 2nd arrondissement! My wife enjoyed the duck breast while I loved the John Dory. Really enjoyed the complimentary truffles and orange slices at the end of the meal as well. The overall service was fantastic!

My wife and I went here on a recommendation for something a little more special after the simple bistro meal the previous night. Staff were ok, efficient but not very warm - didn't recommended ay wines - starters were ok but just ok - I was hoping for something more. My biggest issue and this is pretty major, I ordered...

Love this spot! Excellent food and wine, just enough" hauteur" to know you're in Paris and gracious tasteful decor. Always choose special appetizer and have never been disappointed...also great way for San Franciscan to get their "hit" of foie gras as is banned in politically correct CA. Reservations a must.

We dined here at the recommendation of concierge at our hotel. The decor is lovely, modern, and comfortable. The staff could not be more friendly nor welcoming. While I will say the food was "good" I must admit I have had far better meals, for about half the price, at small bistros in Paris. If you want atmosphere, this is... More

A friend from London highly recommended this restaurant and we loved it. French and modern. Decore could have been NYC or London. Tasty European menu. Good wine list. Friendly staff (I left my phone in the taxi and they helped me retrieve it). Good experience. We are returning tonight.
