Still a scene! Good food though

This is a "see and be scene" place - and has been for years - right in the middle of the posh shopping area. The staff are superficially beautiful (the women are employed more for their looks than waiting skills) ... but the food is actually pretty good, if not great value.

If you are looking for a lunch in the sun then this place is beautiful, the waitresses are very friendly, beautiful and if your partner isn't spoiling you they will make sure they do. The food was to a level of an English Gastro-pub, good but not great and worth half the price. It is definitely based on the location... More

It is no coincidence that this restaurant is featured in glossy magazines with celebrities. The Hermès bags are plenty and this is one of my favorite places to people-watch while having a decent meal. The five is for atmosphere, but the food is not bad either! May take some time to get seated at busy hours, but it is worth... More

We had our concierge (we were at a 5 star hotel, leading hotels of the world hotel) search for a restaurant on the 1st May 2015, which was not easy, due to most restaurants being closed for the Labor Day Holiday. The third option was this restaurant, which he e plained as "trendy". In our presence he spoke with the... More

I visited Paris for the first with my girlfriend for her birthday so we wanted to go somewhere special. We found this place and read mixed reviews.. It's in a very nice part of the city and has a touch of class to it. The food was of an excellent standard and we could not fault any of the 3... More

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
