My wife and I at here right before they closed for the August holiday. The view is spectacular overlooking Notre Dame and the Seine. The food was excellent. We went with the chef's tasting menu instead of the Duck 'Orange. The service was very good. In many ways, what made the meal most memorable was the sense of history. Kings... More

My wife and I treated ourselves to this restaurant and yes it is expensive but well worth it. From the moment you enter the building you are treated like royalty. As should be in a restaurant of this calibre, all of the staff are highly professional and the food, especially the duck, is to die for. The wine list is... More

Where to start? I was one of the people that had only briefly heard of this fabulous establishment as somewhere that I needed to go. I put it on my list and sort of forgot about it. When I emailed my dad just before leaving for Paris and asked him if there were any additional recommendations that he could give... More

This is a place to visit and cherish in your memories. It is not only a restaurant, it is an experience. From the moment you step in and confirm your reservation you are treated with the utmost deference. Let's face it, it has been serving discerning costumers since 1582, and I guess that if the cooking was good enough for... More

What can we say - Impeccable service, beautiful food and a marvelous view of the Seine and Notre Dame. If you appreciate French food and wine Tour d'Argent is very hard to surpass.

My father was Parisian and a gourmet. My whole life, every special meal was compared to La Tour d'Argent. The classic phrase was "C'est bon, mais c'est pas La Tour d'Argent" (It's good but it's not the Tour d'Argent). My father has passed away so I never had the opportunity to dine with him in this establishment, however, when my... More

This is a review designed to guide Americans toward a good experience. Dined at La Tour in 1993, 2002 and more recently. Each time I arranged to have my friendly travel agent, selected because he is fluent in French, do the reservation. Over the phone, about 3 months in advance. They have trouble with American no-shows and merely askied me... More

This is probably the most related restaurant review in history - went here 3 years ago for my 21st but by the looks of the reviews, standards haven't dropped. This restaurant was absolutely first class. I couldn't fault it if I tried. Service was impeccable, food was outstanding, decor & ambiance excellent - perfection from start to finish. I shared...
