This place has a timeless ambiance and decor that takes you back in time. When lucky you can find small corners for your table for a private dinner. Staff was surprisingly friendly for Paris, available and fast. Food was good and price for the menu (including wine) was good. Overall a good experience.

We ate lunch here on our first day in Paris as it was close to our hotel (Hotel Residence Foch) and it had caught our eye earlier in the day. It turned out to be a great find and was full of locals out for their Sunday lunch. Waiting staff were excellent (and patient with my speaking French). While we... More

The place is the next to the metro entrance. Service was exceptional that is unusual for France. Food was very good however my steak came medium as opposed to requested medium rare.

This was close to our hotel Le Meridien and was recommended to us. We began with the crab appetizer which was grand then the turbot for entree which was beautifully prepared and presented, and my husband ordered creme brulee which was possibly the best I have tasted. Our server was Roberto who did an outstanding job and his delightful personality... More

We kept going back here because it was close to our hotel, and breakfast for 2 and a child was cheaper than for just one person at Le Meridien. Our petit dejeuner contained croissants that were outstanding, freshly squeezed orange juice, lovely bread and great cafe au lait There did seem to be a challenge with getting food to tables... More

We were eager to go to a typical parisian brasserie and ended up going to Le Congres Porte Maillot. We usually go the Montparnasse brasseries but felt like doing something else this time. I have to say that the surrounding is quite pleasant. We were seated on the first floor in those wagon like booth. The place felt old school... More

My French mother was drooling at the trays of 6 different kinds of oysters. I had a delicious salmon with thinly sliced zucchini and carrots in a light dijon sauce, my brother had a rare (barely seared) burger and green salad, Mother had a slab of lamb (not their best meal I think). For dessert, we shared profiteroles (made with... More

We had the most impromptu and delicious meal at this restaurant. Our hotel at Residence Foch highly recommended this casual Monday night dinner (gratitude to them) as one of the finer cuisines in the area- and we found it to be an absolute gem. The staff was friendly and courteous and we were fortunate enough to meet our waitress, Alexandra,... More

Le Congress is a fabulous restaurant located just steps off the Maillot Metro station. It is primarily a seafood restaurant but does have other offerings. It is a classic restaurant with several rooms and was quite busy the night we were there. The a la carte menu can be a bit pricey, but the quality is well worth it. They... More
