I read good rumors about this place from people who know the best eating places in Paris. Its not easy to get a table in evenings..but if you go 12 for lunch you will normal get a table. I went and at 12 it was a line up outside and very soon we all got a table. And it was... More

We eat here all the time. It's busy and crazy but wonderful and well done! Crowded, but lots of attention is bestowed on you and the wine and food are superb. Go for the cheese tray!

My husband and I had dinner here twice during our time in Paris. The first time was while we were staying at the Hotel Relais St-Germain and so we had easily gotten a reservation. Also, we initially had a 9pm reservation and at about 6:30pm that night we asked if we could change our reservation to 8pm and they were... More

We keep coming back to this restaurant because each meal is very memorable. The selections and the flavors make this our favorite place to eat in Paris.

A friend and I had dinner at Le Comptoir in November 2014. Anthony Bourdain's recommendation of the place has clearly driven up its cache in Paris - as nearly everyone dining there was American. I agree with the general perception that the staff is less than friendly, with the exception of the maitre'd who was very friendly. The atmosphere is... More

Had suckling pork, escargots and beef steak same time. Waiters are rude and abrupt. No waiting just seated myself inside.

We went to lunch at Le Comptoir du Relais, which is famous for having a chef that is a precursor of the "bistronomie", recommended by friends. We were told that usually there is a big queue (it does not accept reservations), but it was a little after the lunchtime, and the weather was very changeable. It began to rain heavily,... More

We - my wife, her brother and his wife and me (of course) had dinner in our hotel's small restaurant. There was only one seating but the restaurant was full within ten minutes of its 8:30 opening time. To say the food was good would be an understatement, something like "it was the best Big Mac I ever had." No,... More

Just had dinner last night sitting out front, it was fantastic. Lovely food, reasonable price by Paris standards and great atmosphere laughing with some of the Parisians sitting beside us. Definitely worth it for rustic charm. If you make the effort to speak French I always find the staff friendly!

Just had dinner and all 4 of us were very disappointed. Firstly, our champagne was served in wine glasses and the waitress was very abrupt .Passed plates right in front of our faces and practically hit me in my face as she was clearing the table. Bread was served but no plates or butter. Steaks were EXTREMELY tough and the... More
