The food was excellent. Simple, good ingredients. The decor, well I hardly care. The service, unfortunately was not so hot. Not horrible or mean, just indifferent. Highly indifferent. Was it because we are clearly Americans? Was it because we ordered the set price lunch? We did order the same wine as the Parisians next to us, which pumped up the... More

Based on the excellent quality of this restaurant, and being an old established eatery on the Left Bank, I was concerned about snobbery to us as Americans. This was not at all the case. We were made to feel very comfortable from the the moment we walked in. The amuse bouche was a tasty pot of fresh clams, and the... More

Whenever I am in Paris, I have to go to Le Duc for their amazing Sole meunière. I even dream about it!

This restaurant is considered one of the best for seafood in Paris. I believe it has a Michelin star. Even so, we were able to get a 2-spot during an early-evening weeknight without a reservation. Most of the clientele seemed to be there on business. Service was excellent, even pleasant, but that did not make up for the deficiencies. The... More

If you want to find out why they call French arrogant and rude this is a place to visit. Not only is this place overpriced,the service is appalling, there is no other way to describe it.

When you arrive what a disappointment. It was empty and the decor was way below expectation. Feeling of an old and out of fashion passenger ship. When we left it was full with mainly local Parisian. The fish soup was excellent but lack of seasoning. The grilled Sea bass was unforgettable and very well served. The service is very professional.... More

Food is excellent and well presented. Very classical and basic French cuisine executed very well. When we were there the restaurant was completely full. Seem to be totally local crowd. I highly recommend. The restaurant itself needs a more modern decor. But it's also okay this way.

Le Duc should be renamed Le Avoid. When the concierge at our hotel requested a 9:00 reservation, he was advised that we could only be accommodated at 8:00 “at the bar”. When we arrived at the restaurant at 8:00 PM we found only one table occupied in a restaurant that could seat approximately 50. . Once seated we advised the... More

Well known as one of the best fish restaurant in Paris, we have not been disappointed. Close to Montparnasse but far enough to feel in a quiet area and discreet place, the restaurant is cozy, looking like the acajou cabin of a yatch. The card shows only fresh seafood prepared and served in a dynamic but delicate manner by handsome... More
