Came to the restaurant after my bf read the reviews. Wasn't in time to make any reservations so we tried our luck by visiting anyway. It was almost full given the size of the restaurant so we were prepared to be turned away. Fortunately the sweet looking lady boss made some special arrangements and sat us down. We were served...

Dined with two others on Friday night. Seating is uncomfortably cramped and crowded, even by Parisian standards and the dining room decor and ambience are nothing to write home about. We all ordered the same from the day's specials - ham hock terrine and steaks. The terrine was OK. Rather flavourless and eked out with a large amount of carrot.... More

A la Biche au Bois offers the quintessential classic French bistro experience. The restaurant is relatively small, but the layout is an admirable exercise in packing density. Our neighbors were politely friendly, but not intrusive, which is necessary when you are all seated so closely. All members of our party agreed that the food was excellent--veal filet was done particularly... More

This Michelin rated restaurant is a must for anyone interested in spectacular food, ambiance, a friendly and attentive staff, all for a reasonable price. They are only open on week days so call ahead and make a reservation. For 29,90 Euro, they offered a 4 course meal, with your choice of anything on the menu, no limitations. Consider their specials... More

Our visit here didn't start well. I had booked a table over the phone very easily but we rocked up just after 7 when they opened and were almost yelled at for going in - they were NOT OPEN yet! Despite that when they did open the service was great and really good and friendly all evening. I wish I... More

In 2012 we had a very nice lunch at La Biche au Bois so we were keen to return. This time, we found our lunch disappointing. Perhaps this was partly due to the fact that the day before we had a very good lunch in a modern restaurant serving innovative dishes whereas the menu at La Biche au Bois is... More

Classic French food, the coq au vin was wonderful. We really enjoyed the cheese course. The foie gras here was the best we've ever had. Chocolate mousse with Grand Marnier was very simple but so unbelievably good. Excellent french wine paired with the meal as well. Perfect dining experience!

Don't go here if you are looking for something wonderfully innovative. What you will get is excellent value, good sized portions and good traditional French food. We ordered the fixed price menu which included an appetizer, main course, cheese plate and dessert. For 30 euro a person, that's a steal in Paris. We ordered a variety of appetizers (salmon pate,...

We have a meal here every time we are in Paris and it never disappoints. It's the set 4 course menu that's so good -30€ And the meal is always excellent. A huge casserole of coq au vin with a big bowl of mashed potato for 1! The cheeses are magnificent too. A restaurant that I can't rate highly enough!
