3 of us went there for dinner. The appetizers were good. The main courses left a lot to be desired. One of us had a chicken plate that was very bland. The other 2 of us had the steak with Bearnaise sauce. Both of our steaks and sauce were cold. The steak came with fries, that were just thrown on... More

I was there last December and I have tasted the best Confit de Canard. My family enjoyed everything in the restaurant, we had to wait nearly 40 minutes and it's all worth it. I will come back again and I am sure the quality will be good.

I had visited this restaurant several times previously and it was always exceptional. But this visit was over the top! We and three other couples came here our first night in Paris this trip, and it was a dinner beyond compare. The cassoulet is the best in the world. Don't miss this!

After a busy day of traveling I had a great Sunday dinner upstairs. The staff was very helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to experience a traditional French meal. We had escargot, sausages, duck, beer and delicious ice cream and pastry for dessert. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a relaxing dining experience.

Most professional and personable service from the staff at this restaurant. Completely charmed by the manager Christiane. Cannot recommend this place more highly if (like me) you do not speak French but want to experience authentic French cuisine in a great French restaurant.

This unassuming restaurant has a beautiful interior and a very friendly staff. I was dining with Frenchmen, but I would like to believe that the service would have been just as good for anyone!! I went here for lunch, so I only had a main course and dessert. The main was a fantastic, simple but elegant chicken dish with boneless... More

I will start by saying that the food here is truly inspired and so delicious. Being American and wanting to try as many dishes as we could we know that we offended the restaurant by not ordering in the 'proper French way', but we just didn’t care, the waiter and couple sitting next to us were visibly offended by how...

We (2 parents, one 11 year old) were in Paris for two weeks in August, and I agonized over which restaurants to book. I was apprehensive about La FDM due to mixed reviews, but it was one of the better meals we had in Paris and our overall favorite experience. They could not have been warmer or more welcoming, and...
