We've dined at Taillevent several times since the mid1990s. The last 6 or 8 years have repeatedly provided us with terrific experiences at Taillevent, most recently, a few days ago. We've dined for dinner and for lunch, with family and friends and alone as a couple. The service is flawless and welcoming. The food is neither tired nor cliche-ridden and... More

We both had a Langostino soup for 95 E + A Sea Bass on Leeks w/ A Champagne Black Truffle sauce that was the best fish dish... More

Outstanding service and cuisine! An incredible wine list that is one of the best values I have ever seen. Very deep in Burgundy, particularly Coche-Dury. Bravo Taillevent!

I have dined at many noted Parisian restaurants but none surpasses Le Taillevent on Rue Lamanais near the Arc de Triomphe. It remains unchanged since my last visit. One enters an historic 18th century residence owned by the Duc de Mornay and immediately feels welcomed by an indulgent well trained staff. Service is impeccable, the cuisine offers a range of...

Outstanding! Food, service, everything! Went for a special occasion. We were a bit apprehensive beforehand. The place was often described as "formal", "official", "very traditional". Well, it was all that and much more. The food was insane. The service was excellent. The special attentions, the professionalism and the ability of everyone to make you feel at ease no matter how...

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
