Yes, the Obamas ate here. Yes, they are famous for their soufflés. I made a reservation for myself, my mother, and 2 daughters. Three generations of women, all who speak French. Not good enough, unfortunately. They were polite, but clearly uninterested in American clientele. The soufflés were ok . . not the best I have had. If you want to... More

My wife and I had lunch and had great soufflés. The chocolate soufflé was amazing. Plenty of different soufflé options as main course

The food was sublime, the staff attentive, the cost very reasonable, the owner like an immediate old friend. Could not have ended our time in Paris with greater joy.

I am a big fan of Dita Von Teese, she highly spoke of Le Récamier in Paris, that's why I ended up there last night around 9:45 pm. There were tables available and the boss told me to wait 2 minutes before they clean the tables, when the waitress came back to lead me to the table, I told her... More

Le Recamier doesn't rest on its laurels. It is an institution, but delivers on the food and ambience. Staff is friendly and helpful for non-Francophiles. Yes, the souffles are their hallmark, but don't pass on the chalkboard specials. I had the lamb cutlets which were juicy, well-seasoned and cooked to perfection (ask for "a point" if you want them medium... More

A very nice place with nice people. But the food was very mediocre. The onion soup was like onion water, the taste of boullion with a little onion, with a cheese coated piece of bread. The rest was a bit better, but I wouldn't eat there again or advise anyone else to either.

Le Recamier was highly recommended by a friend who spends a lot of time in Paris. The restaurant is wonderful. We were surrounded by locals including one who had her dog on her lap throughout the meal. You don't see that in the United States. The souffles were spectacular. We ordered one with duck, roquefort, figs and vanilla. It was... More

A boeuf a la ficelle that is just out of this world! Souffles for all taste and a menu catering for all tastes. The chef is probably one of the best in Paris. The atmosphere is friendly and refined, the service "impeccable" and whatever you eat is hard to fault. We were lucky to be able to have four meals... More
