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

We waited for more than 40 minutes to order, even though the room wasn't crowded at all. We were at the ground floor, but I noticed two basement floors completely empty. On the table the forks were missing, the tableware was poorly cleaned. On the other hand, the meat was at a regular-good level, as in other restaurants with the... More

We got lucky to be served late by french standards (22:00). Beef Tartare was good but other meat plates were too last. Steve with a good english helped us with the service but the manager was not so friendly and tried to extra charge on our bill. She recognized the mistake and tried to compensate with a discount. Only back... More

If you are not local, my advice: Please avoid this tourist trap! We decided to head down to this Branch for lunch since it was conveniently located along Champs Elysees. The 7 of us were looking forward as we were pretty starved after hours of window shopping. The lady who attended to us was very friendly. We were promptly ushered... More

In a district where 120 euros buys a prix fixe ordinaire lunch, per person, THIS chain dishes up hearty fare at a fraction of the cost. The BEEF was VERY good, cooked to order & served nicely. Salad was fine, as was dessert. Coffees and bottle of Burgundy all nicely done at the correct price point. If one is seeking... More

I just had the worst T-Bone steak ever...I ordered it "red" and grilled, but it was presented as very pale, hardly grilled and tastes, yeah what IS the taste? Add the autistic staff into the equasion and you found a restaurant to skip.
