The food was good. My wife had the Sole (not cheap at 43€, but it's Paris right). I had the Escargots de Bourgogne to start with and the the Gambas for main course. We each had 2 glasses of Chablis + water. Ended up paying a little over 140€, which is to be expected. Great table, right at the window,... More

We just arrived in Paris yesterday and ate in Garnier which had been recommended to us. We had a nice table in the window and very attentive service. I had sole meunière which was beautifully cooked and served and my husband had Coquilles St Jacques - very tasty but no shells. Enjoyed the meal but found it to be a... More

Garnier is open till late and I managed to get a meal despite coming in after 10pm. The Claire Lune oysters recommended by the manager was divine and so was the poisson soup.

The seafood was excellent and the service was exceptional - we're British tourists who speak limited French, but our waiter was happy to translate the entire menu for us and make recommendations. My Fiancé had the sole which was expertly prepared at the table and was absolutely delicious. My scallops were equally fantastic. Would definitely go back and recommend to... More

This was a shocking example of a seafood resteraunt. The fish was dry and average. The oysters were ok but needed a sauce which fresh oysters should not require. It was over priced and under welming. I have no problem spending money but the food needs to of a fresh and good standard.

This restaurant came highly recommended by a local. We didn't have a reservation so can't really complain about the table which almost had two legs in the kitchen. The waiter was incredibly rude but it seemed to be a bit of an affect. We ordered the steak which was terrible. Probably should have gone for the seafood. Bottom line, this... More

Assorted 12 no. 3 oysters at 42 euros and one shot of excellent taittinger cuvee prestige at 16 euros. The huitrier next door is much more crowded.

The oysters and sole were excellent. Like other reviewers, I did not feel particularly welcome as an American, I felt that I was tolerated. We were in no hurry, but 30 minutes after our wine was finished and our water glasses were empty, we were still waiting for the check. I will not return and I do not think they... More
