having read the reviews we hoped the place was as good as described...well, it was better! The foie gras was smooth, silky and gentle to the taste. It was truly amazing ... One of the best I have ever tasted. My husband does not like foie gras and even he thought it was amazing. He had smoked salmon as a... More

We were a group of six. This is a rather small place with a very cozy feeling. Everything in the restaurant is authentic from back in the days of paris and gives a great historical feeling. The staff is very friendly and the food is great (we tasted almost the whole menu)!! A bit pricy but totally worth it (around... More

We love it here. Love the half portion if you wish. Had Fois Gras, fresh fish and we shared the Paris Brest dessert. My husband had the endive Roquefort salad. The beef bourgonian with side noodles is divine. We have been going there for 20 years. Perfect for us!

Always busy , so typically French from the decor , the food and the approach to its customers. Portions are large , sharing is highly recommended especially the starters ( House Smoked Salmon , Foie Gras) followed by such classics as Confit of Duck, Grilled Meats , Beef Bourgogne served with buttered pasta ( more than enough for 2 )....

We try to go there each year we are in Paris--this is the 6th time. It always hits the mark. We shared the morilles appetizer which is just fabulous. My wife had the seared foie gras for her main course and I had the beef bourguignon. She had the souffle and I went with my favorite, the millefeuille, which is... More

This is heavy food. I learned news things from this restaurant. First is sea salt on Foie gras. Salt gives excellent kick in Foie gras. Duck Confit can be this good. They serve crispy duck skin and great duck leg meat with great flavor and moisture. It is not dry at all. My husband said his beef bourginon was very... More

The food was overall five stars here. Our party had foie gras and artichoke hearts as starters, Chateaubriand and boeuf bourguignon as mains, and soufflé's for dessert. Everything was very good to excellent. The wine list isn't extensive, but includes some nice wines at reasonable prices. Some of the dishes are available in half portions at a reduced price, which...

If you want to try the real French cuisine In Paris try the Josephine Chez Dumonet. It is a bistrot, very simple and always full. Not easy to book a table, but if you get one enjoy. Try the traditional French dishes and you will like it for sure. As dessert order a Mille Feuille that is very good. The... More

One of Paris oldest restaurants. Typical French cuisine. We all had cassoulet Which is cooked with beans and various kinds of meats including smoked sausage. A highly recommended course to be accompanied with good full bodied red wine. For dessert we had a great soufflé. I Will defiantly eat there again in the future.
