"Chef" - d'oeuvre - Taillevent

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary with a trip to Europe and we both agree that Taillevent was one of the highlights. As soon as we entered the door, we were treated so well, given a wonderful table and made to feel right at home. We decided to have the dinner with wine pairing... read more

We were in Paris for a few days and had we were staying within walking distance of Taillevent. Our concierge managed to get us a table at this world renowned French establishment. Food was outstanding. Service old school. Quality of food is very high, and filling despite the small dishes. We we were quite satiated after our entrées that we... More

We have visited Le Taillevent with high hopes based on the history of the restaurant and the generally good reviews it has. Unfortunately, however impeccable the service may have been, we have been mostly let down by the food. The starter was especially unappealing with cold and chewy lobster that had a slightly bitter taste. The turbot that followed was... More

This place is famous, but overpriced, and if you can find some place in Paris that is better do it. My suggestion is dine at La Tour d'Argent. For the same prices, get the view, meal and memories.

Taillevent is elegant without being stuffy; haute cuisine without being too rich; and has impeccable but not oppressive service. It must be said at the outset that it is breathtakingly expensive: one pays 80-120 euros for appetizers and 100-150 euros for main courses, so one just has to forget about money are remind oneself that one doesn't come to a...

In June 5 of us went for lunch to Taillevent in Paris. It's not just a meal but rather a complete gastronomic experience. The service was impeccable and the food superb. If you want an "over the top" dining experience, then don't miss Taillevent in Paris.

My husband and I (both in our early 40s) travel frequently across the world and our favorite interest is fine dining. Taillevent was recommended to us by a close friend who also shares a passion for gastronomy. We chose lunch for our first visit to Taillevent. Neither my husband nor I are completely fluent in French but we tried our... More

Visited Taillevent in July 2015. This was our first 2 star Michelin experience and we were not let down. Started with a house champagne as apitief served with some amazing crayfish. They have a amazing mind blowing exhaustive list of over 3000 wines. The 8 course menu was mouthwatering with a balance of sea food and poultry. The wines suggested... More

Of course we had great expectations. Not just because it has two stars but because its the legendry one and only Taillevent. The restaurant itself as a building is very impressive although these days it has no bar. The actual tables are well laid out and very nice. Service is intensive but unlike a previous visit the waiters' were more... More
