Just dropped into this place without a booking and with little knowledge of the place. Was just a wonderful setting with excellent simple food. The staff were lovely - would definitely go back.

A fabulous place in Paris - very special in a very special city. A place to be and to savour, the food, the company, the ambience - and very much le maintenant - the now of being there. Food and service are great. Wine selection fine. Crowd very international, but many Paris folk as well.If I had one Paris resto... More

This is my favorite restaurant restaurant in Paris and maybe in the world. It never lets me down. The staff are as nice and efficient as possible. The wine list is reasonable and the old brasserie decor is just gorgeous. I have friends who go to restaurants for their ambience. I like great ambience and delicious food. We went back... More

We came to this restaurant after leaving the Grand Palais as its quite nearby. The restaurant looks gorgeous but carries quite a strange (unfavorable) odour. The waiters are quite friendly and helpful. However, when it comes to the food, we couldn't help but feel bad. The taste is clearly off and oversalted. We ordered a lobster, which was our best...

What a great experience! Atmosphere very Parisian. Food was terrific. The Creme brulee-flamed was impressive. Great seafood, served on a tiered shell. Reasonable prices. Impeccable service.

Treated like tourists even though we speak French. We were offered one of the worst tables (booked weeks in advance) and then when we asked to moved although the next table was better the best tables were clearly saved for the French. Service was off hand by the maitre d' and although our waiter was very pleasant he got the... More

Decided to go to LCG on a recent Pairs trip after seeing the fun that Jack, Diane and Keanu had in As Good As It Gets. Food was excellent. Oysters were fresh, salmon was perfectly seared and veal was as tasty as I've had. Problem was the service. First our waiter sent a young boy, inexperienced and nervous who asked... More

Because of a reservation mishap by our hotel, we were not on the list for dinner for five. Despite being a busy Friday night (luckily not full yet), the maitre kindly seated us right away, after explaining the unfortunate situation. The restaurant is quintessential classic Paris, the service efficient, and the food delicious. For "entree" we shared frog legs (surprisingly... More

Went after a show at the Garnier. A 22.00 hour seating is no problem here. Lots of life and the place is full on until 1 am. Good service in a great and beautiful room. The food however is a little dull. Oysters seem to be a speciality but we didnt try those. The foie gras very average. The meat... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
