Bad service, repeatedly

I went there with hubby for a snack around 4pm, and we're very tired since we've been walking for 4 hours straight in the heat! Came in, had to wait to get seated although there were a lot of empty tables. We were given the menu immediately, but ordering was a pain, almost seems like we were non... read more

A simple but nice steakhouse. We never left disappointed. Mi cuit as desert is a good choice :) Nice beer and price level is the normal in Paris.

Me and my boyfriend enjoyed this place so much that we had to come back twice. I had the 5th av hamburger and it was delicious, and the sauces are great too. I was speechless because since I moved to Italy I haven't had a meal like that. The service is really, really good. The waiters are so kind. I... More

The kids choose this restaurant- the food was cheap but that's all it had going for it. There were a couple of people finishing their meals as we arrived- then just us. The staff seemed to take this as permission to smoke cigarettes in the door area. We were already eating by this time. The burgers are served rather pink... More

Don't go there. It's not worth it. I suspect they use our bread left overs for other guests. The burger was without taste. I thought it was impossible to do a bad burger. I was wrong.

It was kids' choice (I truly don't understand why any sane adult would go there without kids). Didn't expect much but still! - They brought the entree at the same time with the main course - They got 3/4 orders wrong! (Both kids asked burgers without cheese, both got cheese. I asked my steak with barbecue sauce, they brought it... More

The food was good, even if we did end up misjudging their interpretation of rare/medium and well done. The service was terrible...we were seated on the higher level and perhaps the waiters are assigned that area as a punishment as there is lots of running up and down stairs for them but our man had attitude. I could see that... More
