Uncomplicated very good food

I love this place. it is always a good choice. Food is very fresh and straight forward. Service is charming. The classic sole with green beans is perfect! And the cracker cheesecake is a must.

When in Paris we often take the quality of the food for granted. It is a given that the French are proud about their cuisine and strive for perfection even if it is to be delivered from a food truck. All the reviews about L'Avenue are true. The atmosphere is chic. The service is "Modelesque". If you are intimidated by... More

Heres your Foie gras. The process of force-feeding ducks and geese. This is done by forcefully pushing tubes down ducks' throats. If the stress is prolonged, excess protein may build up and clump together as amyloids, consumption of which can induce amyloidosis in mice. It has been hypothesized this may be a route of transmission in humans too, it could... More

As usual nice atmosphere. The service is perfect . Nice looking girls working in . You feel in a fashion house. The cousine is international . I got oyster and St.Jaques . Sitting outside you got the great view on the Tour Eiffel

If your afraid of the glamazon woman with immaculate features, legs longer than the champs eylesse and dressed in what i can only imagine is donetlla versaces dress up box... There is something pretentious about this restaurant. The waitress's where practically models and whilst that is a complement, I don't think they have the capability to be genuinely friendly.

Amazing food! the vibe is incredible!!, Kendall Jenner was eating there while i was arriving, the area is to die for just full of high end designer boutiques, so GORG.. and is not expensive considering a simple plain lunch in Mcdonalds for example is 9 or 10 euros, i love this restaurant deff made me feel in PARIS, lovesit.

The atmosphere in this gem of a restaurant is great. I have come alone and with a group of people. The food is always great. It is a real treat. The people watching is fun and the food is fabulous. Don't miss the desserts. Love the French macaroons! Nothing like starting with a glass of champagne and then having a... More

L'Avenue was highly recommended by my friend, so our hotel concierge booked us in for lunch. We were meeting there and, when I arrived, I gave my friend's name and hotel name and was taken to a table upstairs in a corner. I waited and waited and waited...first angry at her tardiness, and then increasingly panicked that something terrible had... More

Went to L'Avenue last night and it was quite horrified at the experience. As it is owned by the same people as Hotel Costes where i eat often i was expecting helpful staff and beautiful food, unfortunatly this was not the case. The staff were incredibly abrupt and rude which was incredibly off putting and uncomfortable for myself and my... More

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
