Best Soufflé ever

Wow, what a place. We arrived 9:45pm and the place was still packed. Luckily we got a seat for 3 and ordered 3 different flavors of Soufflé. It's hands down the best.

Without a doubt the best Soufflés ever. Very on the ball staff. You must try the chicken one and for dessert the chocolate is yummy.

My husband and I walked in here for lunch without a reservation on a Saturday in peak season, and although the main dining room was full, the waiter found us a seat in the back room. We had two savory soufflés and shared the apricot soufflé for desert. They were all delicious but the apricot soufflé was by far the... More

We really enjoyed our meal so much that we returned for a 2nd meal during our visit to Paris. The soufflés were delicious as was the filet mignon. We were led to a backroom dining room that was very cozy and air-conditioned -- a priority for us on a rather hot Paris day. The waiters were professional, cordial, and attentive.... More

Savory souffles were not out favorite but the place is nice and service is good. Salmon was good. I just preferred buying fresh cheese, baguettes, and wine and picnicking in the park. Save your money for the attractions.

The souffle for dinner was incredible. The service was good. Try the escargot. Must have the hotel make reservations for you.

Le Soufflé serves mainly air, but such tasty air is worth waiting for. Yes, you will wait in line since they do not take bookings. Yes, the wait might be long. But please wait. All they serve here is soufflé. Soufflé as a starter. Soufflé as a main dish. Soufflé as a dessert. We had the Soufflé artichoke & haddock... More

We took a soufflé cooking course at La Cuisine and one of the participants mentioned that she had eaten at a wonderful restaurant that served only souffles - Le Souffle. Since we love souffles we naturally had to try it. Le Souffle is located on a street just parallel with the Rue de Rivoli – close to Place Vendome. We... More
