Great location, nice decor but only marginal food that is overpriced for what you get.only reason I didn't give a 1 rating is due to the exceptional staff.

Very expensive but posh lunch place in prime shopping area. Beautiful staff, very friendly (recently - it did not use to be this way, they were much snobbier in previous years!), best place to see and be seen during a shopping spree in the Avenue Montaigne. The food is solid (tuna tartare, beef tartare, foie gras, pasta pomodoro) but not... More

This restaurant really has it all. An amazing location on the corner of Avenue Montaigne, an excellent menu and friendly staff without the snooty attitude you may expect. Reserving a table online was easy with a prompt response. When we arrived, we were shown to a table and immediately offered a drink. The menu was explained and the food arrived... More

We ate here tonight, our last night in Paris, and most definitely the best! Everything was perfect. The staff were lovely and really helpfully in discussing the menu. We both had the Fillet steak with fries and mash and green beans! The mash is to die for by the way..... Steak cooked to perfection. We would definitely come back for... More

L'Avenue is at an excellent location and the environment, particularly the outside tables area on a sunny spring afternoon, is vibrant. The waitresses are young and beautiful. The food, however, is poor at best. It's about the same you would find at a decent large scale U.S. restaurant chain, only less tasty and three times as pricey. Ordering beverages wasn't... More

We had extremely high expectations of this restaurant as we had seen many pictures of celebrities dining here on their trips to Paris. Our expectations were definitely met. L'Avenue was a fancy restaurant, perfect for our final dinner on our girls trip to Paris. Being such a high-class restaurant we assumed the serving sizes would be rather small and fussy... More

Recently spent the weekend in Paris with a couple of friends and this restaurant was recommended to me by a colleague. We booked in for a late dinner on the Saturday (10pm) as we had already arranged to have drinks elsewhere beforehand. I wasn't too hungry so I had the starter of snails as my main with a side of...

Restaurant is great, stuff is mostly really friendly (not just French friendly;) and food is great. We had really tasty late lunch and we loved it so much that we booked table for dinner on the same day. It's maybe little bit expensive but location is perfect and it's totally worthy.

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.
