I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years whenever I visit Paris and it has been consistently one of the best food, service and wines in Paris that I have ever experienced. It is unfortunately that Michelin has only awarded it 2 stars since in my humble opinion it should be given back the 3 star that... More

When the place is THAT famous, you expect a lot. And sometimes it leads to disappointment like in the cast of Taillevent. The table we got was in a corridor with people constantly passing by.

What can I say? Everything about Le Taillevent was a perfect balance. Service attentive and helpful but not too much. The food a series of delightful discoveries - every course a journey of flavour, but not too many, or too clashing. Wine perfectly selected to compliment. The room elegant, comfortable, and welcoming. It is not tricksy, or flamboyant, and yet... More

This restaurant used to have 3 stars.it now has 2. I think it deserves 3, again. Service was impeccable, the tasting menu was impressive, and the wine list offers the best values in Paris, by a wide margin.
