Never disappoints. The menu is long and you will talk yourself on and off dishes until the waiter finally arrives. The had salad and bisque to start and pheasant and sole for the mains. Excellent The couple with us had herring and charcuterie as the starters. The wines are superb and try to leave room for desert. The staff has... More

If you are an American, or one who is not fluent in French, you are not wanted in this restaurant. We were spending our wedding anniversary in Paris. It was our 13th stay in a city we love. On many visits we have made a point of eating at Voltaire. Previously the restaurant had been most enjoyable despite our being... More

We used to live around the corner from Le Voltaire and no matter how many great restaurants we enjoyed, nothing could match the food, atmosphere and professionalism of the waiters. Tonight's meal at LeVoltaire closed the deal. I've had better food at In economy class on American Airlines. The waiters were snubbing us speaking french while carrying on in English... More

Fantastic partridge, wonderful and helpful servers, and the type of Left Bank feel you imagine when you think of Paris. Great night!

Delicious lunch shared with my mom and aunt after a trip to the Louvre. Great service even with our minimal French and we would've definitely gone back again if time has allowed. My aunt and I both had the moules frites and at the end of our trip agreed that this was one of the best meals we enjoyed while... More

My wife and I dined here tonight. We loved it. The waiters had impeccable manners and service, and helped us with the extensive menu. I had the oeufs "James" to begin and it was a great start. My wife had the lapin and I had the boudin noir. Both dishes came with generous plates of puréed carrot and potato, a... More

Our lunch was ok. I enjoyed a good vegetable soup and a sandwich. We CLEARLY ordered the special Quiche Loraine et Salade. The Salade never came, so when I asked the waitress to charge us for only the quiche she rudely claimed we ordered it all but only wanted the quiche and it would be the same price.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews here on trip advisor. Bad choice. We dinned with friends and had a smattering of French between us. From the moment we walked in we did not feel welcome (we obviously looked like tourist!). We tried out best to speak French and asked politely if they spoke English - the answer 'No... More

This is the problem with family run restaurants, owners can pretty much be rude and racist and get away witih it, unlike managers they are not answerable to anyone. We went there on a rainy evening and asked the vey pleasant, bespectacled frenchman inside, probably the manager, if we could have a coffee and smoke and dinner later, he said... More

I can't believe I waited almost two years to write this. We had lunch at this charming bistro after visiting the Louvre. My son still talks of the delicious roasted chicken and steak frittes he enjoyed. I had the most delectable club (French style) sandwich. We tell everyone visiting Paris to be sure and have a meal here. I will... More
