Unforgettable experience. I must do in your lifetime.

We had one of our most romantic and unforgettable dinner of our lives in a very magical atmosphere from other time. The grand classic of all French Restaurants!

My husband and I dined here on our recent trip to Paris. The restaurant is on the banks of the Seine, with lovely views of the Notre Dame-but you don't come here for the views! The food is superb and very traditional French cuisine. The house specialty is duck, as you'll find out from the abundance of foie gras, duck... More

Since 1991 I have eaten at this once iconic temple of gastronomy. I have witnessed its long drawn out decline from 3 Michelin stars to one very shaky Michelin star. The cuisine is tired and crying out for someone to take a firm grip on things.Yes, there is a magnificent wine list but at prices that are astronomical. The head... More

Having been to La Tour d'Argent for diner last time, this time we decided to visit for lunch. They offer a lunch menu but the A La Carte is always available, as is their full wine list. As this was for a special occasion, we chose à la carte the Canard au Sang, as we did last time and chose... More

The Tour d'Argent (Silver Tower) is a culinary institution in Paris. Located on the Quai de la Tournelle in the 5eme arrondissement in Paris, it has been serving up wonderful meals since for generations. Duck is the house speciality and diners receive a certificate with a serial number for the duck they have consumed for their meal. Many famous people... More

This restaurant has to be one of the best I have ever visited. The food is just delicious, I had the famous duck. The cheese selection was amazing and they had the most impressive vine list.The waiters are very professional and the owner lady ever came over to our table to greet us. You should be dressed up for this... More

This place is a myth and you'll know why when you'll go there... The view is incredible and the service is something I had never seen before. Not only the staff is perfectly groomed but they are nice and always taking care of you. Yes, the bill is incredibly high, but it is a true experience and I am glad... More

I visited La Tour d'Argent ten years ago when on business in Paris. It must have made an impression on me that I have been wanting to go back since. My husband and I decided to go to Paris to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. La Tour d'Argent was the dinner venue. The restaurant is such that the moment... More

This was my third visit and feel it will be my last. We know that of course it has a tip top reputation, so my first visit was a lunch with 8 of us to say goodbye to a dear friend. The Sommelier was arrogant and condescending. We chose to ignore him and focus on the experience. It ihas a... More

I had wanted to experience this historical restaurant for a long time and booked three weeks in advance. From arrival to departure with my tiny blue box I felt like I had stepped back into true haute cuisine dining. The staff were extremely friendly and as I was solo this was greatly appreciated. I decided on lunch to enjoy the... More
