What a lovely surprise!

My husband had walked past this restaurant a couple years ago, and so he decided we should try it this trip. We walked in without a reservation, and instead of being shunted to the back, we were put in the front. We had the pris fixed menu, today was beef carpaccio with a lovely peach and... read more

The menu was in French which neither of us speaks but when my wife asked our initial waiter what was the speciality, let's just say he was not helpful. I would have left but the wine had been opened. My wife then asked a waitress who although she spoke little english (unlike the first waiter who seemed to be reasonably... More

Our favorite Sunday go to for leisurely brunch. Ambience is thru the roof. Love the setting. The food is good, nothing memorable and service friendly. As a brasserie open all day which makes it so convienent.

A return visit each time we find ourselves in Paris. Always great food, atmosphere and not too pricey. Looking forward to our return in October.

One of my favorites in Paris. The chicken and the onion soup is outstanding but a bit pricey but hey, the ambiance is first rate!

Beyond mediocre food- was my daughters birthday which I indicated - I ordered veal stew which was bland, tasteless and chewy-- my daughters duck was so dry I could not swallow- when I indicated this to the waiter he shrugged his shoulders. The greeters at the door are charming as is the ambiance - and that is all. Very rushed... More

Must go to this restaurant. Was in the movie Something's Gotta Give With Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. First class service, worth the price. Dress neatly. Take your time and enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful restaurant. Frog legs were excellent.

This is what I think of when I think of classic French restaurants. The atmosphere was casually elegant, with soft lighting, perfect for a date. The food and service were exceptional. They think their claim to fame is the fact that a scene from "As Good As It Gets" was filmed there, but their real claim to fame is their... 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.
