Not just another french bistro around the corner! Food, service and ambiance are great. Yet, quiet and cozy for a couple or a person on their own. Enjoy an after dinner special drink made by the family and you will want to return again! Great for non-french speakers.

From the moment our car dropped us off and Harold came out to greet us, my wife and I knew this would be a memorable experience. We were not disappointed with what followed. Harold was extremely helpful throughout the whole experience, from recommending the right wine to choosing the right dessert to end with. The food was exquisite, my foie... More

Paul Chene is exceptional! If you happen to get a table (small intimate restaurant) count yourself among the very fortunate who will dine at one of the best restaurants in Paris! Harold makes the experience unforgettable, as he talks you through the various courses, and makes wonderful recommendations. Order an initial glass of the house Champagne - they actually make...

We have been to Paul Chene before and have recommended this restaurant to everyone who says they are visiting Paris. We have yet to hear anyone say anything but rave reviews. Once again, Harold delivers a fantastic meal and experience! We cannot say enough! This time we came for my wife's 50th birthday and we were treated like one of... More

Myself and my wife ate at Paul Chene on our first night in Paris to celebrate our 25th wedding. Recommended by our hotel, this was a great choice and a unique Parisian experience. Harold, owner and host, made the evening and meal unforgettable with his attentive service and conversation - without ever being intrusive. His rendition of my wife's English... More

Tried to get into this very intimate, highly recommended restaurant as a walk-in on a Monday evening. That was unrealistic. So we made a reservation for the following evening and when we showed up next, the proprietor (a remarkable one man show) was expecting us, welcoming us by name. The room was on the smaller size but tastefully appointed. The... More

One of the best meals I've had in Paris, lunch was extraordinary (mmmm lobster). Service was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. Definitely don't find that everywhere in this city. Every part of the meal was superb. Highly recommended for locals and tourists alike... you can't go wrong at Paul Chene.

My parents found this restaurant serendipitously 2 years ago and loved it so much, we had to go back this summer. The owner greets you at the door, is the typical French monsieur, and provides beyond excellent service. Their homemade champagne is fabulous (coming from someone who can't stomach even the most expensive brands - Dom and VC - in... More

We were looking for a new bistro in Paris and asked our hotel (Four Seasons) for a suggestion. They told us that we could not go wrong with Paul Chene. They were absolutely right. The food was tremendous, the service exceptional, and the atmosphere even better. As well, their wine list was very good. Paul Chene was a comfortable restaurant... More
