Read reviews on here and used that to decide to dine here. The staff was fun and friendly as could be. We didnt have a reservation and were still accomodated on a Friday night. The waiter was playful and professional. We ordered the fois gras and he split it for us. Rich and delicious! I had the duck confit and... More

This restaurant was highly recommended but just didn't live up to it's advanced billing. I just expected more. I would rate at 3.5 stars -- it was better than average but not quite very good. The Coq au Vin lacked complexity and the sauce was more like a salty barbeque sauce than a rich gravy. The duck breast in cherry... More

I was there for lunch today with kid (3 yo) and wife. The staff is amazing, taking care of our kid, the waiter even cut his chicken for him. Food is delicious from the first to the last bite. Cheese selection is great. Good wine list. Take the selection of the day : freshalicious !

We found this restaurant based on other trip advisor reviews. So glad we went. The food was fabulous. We had snails which were not in the shell but presented in butter and garlic that we could not get enough of. I had steak and fries with a lovely béarnaise sauce. Desserts were incredible. Staff was friendly and spoke English. I... More

This was recommended by a friend who travels to Paris every couple of years. Apparently Obama ate there when he visited. Our cab driver said "Obama restaurant" when I pointed at our destination. Who knew? The food was all very, very good. The only exception was the steak. I don't think this is a Parisian specialty, but my son wanted... More

Definitely advise you should try it. The duck (medium done) is what you want to choose as main! The snails are ok and the creamy goat cheese as starter is the best thing ever. Very friendly staff.

Our concierge recommended it, and it was a great experience. By Parisian standards, this was not that expensive a meal. I had the cold cucumber soup, the roasted duck, and the raspberry tart. Everything was wonderful. The service was spot on as well. This is a world class food experience at a very reasonable price.

Special was coq au vin. Delicious. Also had the pork terrine starter with the fig chutney. Just the right amount of spice and sweetness with the oil and vinegar on the salad. Great balance. Chicken with morel mushroom cream sauce was amazing. Highly recommend it and will return if we are able.

Our first visit to this restaurant was quite by accident, as we were looking for "Le Petit Cler"- wrongly given as this address. The mistake occurs quite often, apparently, as the restaurants are linked, Le Petit Cler being the "baby". We were helped by a lovely waiter there, who phoned ahead to explain our error.and to hold our table .... More
