A night at Paul Bert

When we arrived on a wet cold Wednesday night at 7:30 the place was empty and we thought we shouldn't of had to make reservations. By 8:30 the place was packed and we were thankful that we had made the... read more

My husband and I used to love Bistrot Paul Bert and looked forward to going there on our relatively frequent trips to Paris. To us it was the quintessential classic French bistro. Not having visited Paris for the past four years we were really excited to return to both Paris and Bistrot Paul Bert. Paris was as wonderful as ever... More

Great parisian experience. when i travel europe i dine out for the love and energy of its people; not what I am accustomed to back home in the states. sure the service was a bit languid but this is Paris. Dining out should b a love affair and Bistrot Paul Bert set a fantastic mood. The Steak au Poivre was... More

My wife and I have conflicting opinions of this place, but since I'm writing the review my bias will show here. Overall, I was disappointed. This place has received quite a number of very positive reviews not only on TripAdvisor but from other well-regarded sources, and since dining in Paris is usually pretty solid almost anywhere we approached it with...

We came to this restaurant during our trip to Paris, with my boyfriend, in the middle of december, seeking for traditional french ambiance. The food was ok but not exceptional, price/quality ratio not good because simple mets quite expensive, but over all the rest we were chocked by glacial attitude of waiters, neither friendly nor polite, almost throwing food to...

We had an excellent lunch here. Food was top notch. The steak was fantastic, seared perfectly with a nice flavorful crust. You will not regret ordering this if you're a red meat lover. We were so stuffed we did not have room for dessert, much to my disappointment. Service was good, but not outstanding.

Decided to have lunch here only by happenstance. It was terrific! They Ztook us without a reservation. The menu is on a chalkboard. Everything we ordered was delicious. They were also very nice to our 6 yr old. The decor was very Paris.
