We went to this little bistro for a dinner. Nice place, service and food was great. Price on average. 90€ for a dinner x2 with entree main course dessert and wine. Nice place to go to see a typical French bistro where french people go. TO GO

We saved A la Biche au Bois for our last night in Paris because of David Lebovitz's glowing review. Let's be clear about something. David Lebovitz is only human, and even David Lebovitz makes mistakes. When we walked in, I was delighted by the atmosphere. Packed, cozy, buzzing, pure mom-and-pop charm. The waiters were warm and welcoming, and I was... More

I like this place, make no mistake. Small and clubby, lively wait staff, crowded with character who are serious eaters. A five minute walk from Gare de Lyon makes it even more attractive. The only sad part of the meal was the Coq au Vin. This traditional french chicken with vegetable stew in a red wine reduction sauce is what... More

On a recent business trip to Paris I head to A la Biche au Bois based on the review I had seen on David Lebovitz's website. I wanted a good classic meal and wasn't necessarily looking for something too upscale. This meal and restaurant hit the spot, and I am glad that I tried it. I went to this restaurant... More

This restaurant, only 5 minutes walk from the Gare de Lyon, has a traditional French bistro feel with folks packed in as tight as can be. Apart from the friendly atmosphere and capable servers negotiating the tiny space, what is featured here is game (in season). After finishing off two huge portions of foie gras, we moved on to the...

We thought the food was fine but not better than many other similar brasseries. We went for the game. My wife had the duck and deer terrines and I had the country terrine. Both were fine. Then I had the hare and she had the Scottish grouse. Both were ok but but we have had better. So I wouldn't avoid... More

Every conceivable game dish, exquisitely cooked, generous portions and friendly service. Their own tasty game pate, clearly not bought in. Deer, venison, even grouse from Scotland tender and succulent. Unbeatable, Generous cheese included on the menu as well as super desserts - chocolate mousse au Grand Marnier completed a perfect meal.

Good food, even if the french fries were cooked and re-cooked over and over... no room amongst the tables, like a long single table with no privacy: you'll be able to listen to your neighbours' talks... and last but not least, if you are lucky, you might witness a fight amongst the waiters, ending up with one waiter smashing his...

Been here many times. The food is excellent and the biche was superb. Only one minor negative. There was smoke coming in from the place next door

Order the Coq Au Vin. You won't be disappointed. Being a self-confessed foodie, I did some research into places to eat before we our trip. This restaurant kept coming up so we thought "let's go!" Bookings are really important as its such a small & busy place - due to our lack of French, we had our hotel reception make... More
