Went here for lunch on a Friday afternoon in July around 12:30. The place was packed but they managed to squeeze us in (party of 6) without a reservation, yay! The menu is entirely in French, but the host speaks English. Among the six of us, the two who ordered sandwiches (Croque Monsieur smoked salmon and egg sandwich and Croque... More

I give only one star because of the good food. We arrived and waited for forty minutes in line for a table. The table were very close to each other. The menu was only in French and the waiters were not so available to help in this fast paced environment. I ordered a soup and my wife ordered an entree.... More

My husband and I are visiting France for the first time and thought coming to Le Comptoir would be a nice place to have our last dinner in Paris. What a horrible mistake that was! This place really is a tourist trap luring people in with the long lines outside, it is all a farce! We waited about an hour... More

Two couples and we had 1 liter of house wine, bottle of water, three steaks that were doused in a thick brown sauce and an order of salmon with vegetables for 142€. Fairly expensive, but everyone enjoyed their meals and the fish was terrific. Around the corner from a terrific small organic wine bar and nestled into lots of restaurants... More

Thinking about my dinner and lunch at le Comptoir makes my mouth water. I have a dairy allergy and the staff made it so easy for me to order and provided great recommendations. And the people watching in St. Germain is fantastic. Go here, I don't see how you couldn't like it.

We ate here when this restaurant was at its best - but that was years ago. Nothing has changed since we were last here and were so disappointed: the menu is unchanged, unbelievable after such a long break and in a different season. One thing has changed however - the chef seems to have discovered sumac, and it was everywhere.... More

We have been very fortunate to travel in Paris twice a year for the past two years. Each time, we try and experience more restaurants recommended by our foodie friends. We tried to make reservations for Le Comptoir du Relais but we were not able to get them. They do make a number of the tables available for people not... More

The menu was all in French and they were not willing to help with menu but I was prepared. Watched what the other tables ordered.... More

Have eaten here twice...both in summer and it's fabulous seasonal French food showcasing great produce..get there before 1230pm and you should nab a table for a great lunch. Highly recommended.
