Excellent food, service and drinks

Only ate in the bar at this place...it was across from my apartment so convenient to stop in for a bite and a drink. I liked the warm (and dark) ambience, the friendly service and great drinks. Always felt welcomed here and so appreciated the hospitality and quality.

This restaurant is unlike normal American diners as combines classic (French style) American food with a typical romantic Parisien atmosphere. The food was tasty and i particularly loved how the restaurant was decorated and how it felt quite intimate for a big place.

This is a good place in the Marais district for some real American food. It was a nice change from eating too many pastries. The place is a bit noisy but the burger and fries were very good. Service was excellent! Good selection of American and French wines. Overall a good experience!

Its OK if you are looking for some American food in Paris, but really there are lots of better food options all around this area. if you are a homesick American it may satisfy, but really its average at best.

Although this place is an "American" restaurant, its longevity in this location has made it more French in recent years. The staff are friendly and the food is good. If you want American hamburgers you can definitely get a good one here.

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
