Having eaten at this highly reviewed restaurant on previous visits to Paris,we were so looking forward to a return visit this summer, that we invited friends to join us as our guests. Unfortunately,my husband and I both ordered the same entree, steak. When it arrived at our table, the presentation and the aroma were fantastic, but when we tried to... More

This was the third time I went to Bistrot Paul Bert. This one was with my family. Everything was delicious, with a great bistrot atmosphere, with that feeling of real life of Paris. For dessert, the macaroon with raspberry is wonderful. If it is the season, the beaujolais Côte Du Py Morgon 2012 was a nice choice.

Food was not uniformly good. The sole meunière was outstanding. But the steak was tough. Service was quite brusque. Compared to other meals in Paris, I thought this place was overpriced. I would not return.

Three of us enjoyed this bistro our first night in Paris. The menu is listed on chalkboards and one is in English. The service was friendly, but a bit brusque due to the business of the restaurant, and while not slow, very leisurely. Our server's English was limited but he had someone else come talk to us when needed. My... More

Good food poor service terrible atmosphere The staff made us feel dumb by asking to explain some of the dishes and seemed like we were not the welcome there. Thankfully the wine was good but the food was only above average. Maybe we caught the staff on a bad night

I don't understand why this restaurant has such a good reputation. I felt I would have gotten a better meal in any randomly chosen French restaurant in Paris. This place seems to be coasting on its reputation, which it may once upon a time have deserved. It's overpriced. The wines especially are overpriced. I had lamb shoulder. The waitress, trying...

Had a 3 course pre fixe meal for 38€. The choices were wonderful. Buffalo mozzarella with heirloom type tomatoes. Little olive oil and basil. There were also fried monk cheeks with tartare sauce that looked really good. We also had a pate first course. Two Dover sole for lunch. My husband had rabbit with olives. The dessert I had was...

This restaurant is just about what you would expect on your trip to Paris, good food in busy bistro. While we both thoroughly enjoyed our food, there didn't appear to be a huge selection on the day to day menu and most diners opted for the special which was fillet steak at 37 euros. Choose wines from the blackboard which... More

We went yesterday for the 38 euro menu. There were ample choices and settling for the langoustines followed by the suckling pig were both stellar choices. For dessert I had the Raspberry macaroon which was delicious and also the largest one I've ever had. A very good meal with some highlights. The bistro is frequented with locals all enjoying their...

We loved our dinner at Paul Bert. We were seated on the banquette near the front (more fresh air, which is nice in the summer in Paris), and because we saw that the portion on the steak frites was generous, we opted to share it. My husband ordered the prix fixe menu with the tomato salad (fantastic!!), the steak ("ongle... More
