Quiet, good food, excellent service, lots of local clientele. We spent a long rainy lunchtime here and thoroughly enjoyed it.

We had a wonderful experience at our first dinner in Paris at the L'Orangerie. I had the ravioli for an entree. It was done perfectly on a bed of spinach. The duck for the main course was superb. The cream mousse was a great finale. The staff was very good. Professional at all times. We had made our reservation by... More

We followed Rick Steves advice when choosing this restaurant for our first dinner in Paris. It was a great choice. Great menu, delicious food and excellent service. A very enjoyable dinner. Only the small screens playing old black and white movies were a bit of a strange choice of decor. Still, highly recommended for a true Parisienne dinner experience.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Paris and went to this restaurant based on Rick Steves' book. It was absolutely perfect from start to finish! Monica was charming and a perfect hostess and the food was uncomparable. We started out with excellent champagne and had the eggplant gratin with a chèvre and curry creme sauce... More

This is a unique French restaurant in the gorgeous île St Louis, a stone's throw from Notre Dame. I used to live nearby in the Marais and this quaint quarter is a must for Francophiles. I thought that the food was delicious and cooked to perfection and there were some select French locals, which is always a good sign. We... More

After reading some of the reviews of L'Orangerie on TA I thought of trying to cancel my 50% off Groupon but the on line menu looked good. Perfect, welcoming and warm unpretentious service began with the selection of a tasty and affordable Cote de Rhone for 35 euros and well worth it. My wife started with the fois gras torchon... More

I dropped in for lunch and had their formula for 19euros--for appetizer, I chose the ravioli on a bed of spinach which was finished off with a very tasty white cream sauce with a little of tarragon/basil? The tiny little raviolis were also quite good but overcooked as it was not "al dente". For my main, I chose the duck... More

Dined here based on the reviews. I can confirm that it is really not worth the effort. An entree which represented itself as eggplant gratinee should have been charged with false pretences. In reality it was a rather soupy cheese sauce with a few pieces of less than inspiring aubergine. No crisp chewy topping. The fish main was fine and... More

This restaurant is located on the quaint Ile Saint-Louis in Paris. The staff was extremely friendly and provided us with an English menu. Although the menu was pricey, we chose the fixed price dinner that offered a choice of an entree and dessert, and we were very pleased. The portions were a perfect size and filling. I would recommend the... More

Out if the way find on the isle of st Louis. This charming little restaurant offers well done French food at a good value.. You can't go wrong with the price fixed menu of main course and dessert. It seemed like it was patronized by locals which is always a good sign. If I had more time I would eat... More
