Very pleasant evening spent here

We were alerted to this restaurant before our trip by a friend, so made it a priority to find it once we arrived in Paris. We secured a booking straightaway and enjoyed a superb dinner in wonderful surroundings. My foie gras starter was delicious, my wife enjoyed a mixture of snails and frogs' legs... read more

Yes we went here per reviews from trip advisor and the movie Something's gotta give. We had lunch here. It was 80 euro. Not much to rave about. Service was mediocre. Salad was delicious however won't be going back.

This restaurant has incredible food! They start you off with the typical olives and fresh bread. We then ordered the frog legs appetizer. Those were the nicest frog legs I've ever tasted. I'd say they were like the tenderest chicken wing ever! We ordered two dinner entrees. Mark ordered the braised beef. It was accompanied by buttery mashed potatoes. The... More

We were just walking down streets looking for a nice place to eat dinner. When I saw the Zagat rated sign in the window I knew this place would be good. Was it ever! We did not know the history of this restaurant at the time, but now we do. The décor is beautiful and we had a very nice... More

Honestly. If you go and it is your first time...the stunning brasserie and excitement in the air will 'wow' you. As for me, I've gone here many times of the years always excited to 'not just enjoythe setting and the wonderful ambience', but for the wonderful brasserie cuisine that has always made me think this brasserie was somewhere between an...

The hi point was it was serving dinner on a Sunday. The decor was a set designers idea of a Parisian bistro, as apparently it was used as a set, but unfortunately they did not bring any real chefs to the set. My onion soup was OK, though lacked the intense taste I like from further reduction if the stock... More

Fairly pricey restaurant. Decor was magnificent. Service was good but the food was a disappointment, My wife had steak au poivre. The beef was nothing to write home about. I had lamb chops which were good. Overall, the experience was nothing memorable.

Fantastic! We celebrated our 39th Anniversay during our vacation to Paris. The food and service was impeccable. The restaurant has been featured in many movies and was very romantic. We were very surprised by the final bill as it was very reasonable and unexpected. Highly recommend.

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.
