We had lunch reservations and the place was packed. Lovely outdoor dining with a nice view. The gougere which I had with my cocktail was super and too much of a temptation. We had duck and chicken for our plats and everything was excellent. The highlight was my husband's chocolate dessert which was gluten-free (he has celiac disease). Not a... More

Recent review from Marc definitely hits the spot. A big resto in very grand surroundings, with service definitely better than previous reviews had led me to expect, food good but not exactly memorable, and at a price just a bit higher than I was comfortable paying for what we got. We dined inside on a cold autumn evening in uncertain... More

The restaurant is huge, and so are the portions. The prices are also high, and the food, although good, nothing that will last in your memory. It is a good experience if you want to dine in the Grand Palais. Service is very attentive and cordial. Wine list also very nice.

Zero stars really. Despite having made a 2pm reservation for lunch, there was no table available and my party of three were 'told' to stand at the end of the queue, of mainly people who had not made reservations. After twenty minutes of standing there, with no evidence of anyone ahead being shown to a table, we left. From our... More

I came for a business lunch and I would definitely recommend it. The food was delicious, portions are great if you look at the quantity / quality / price ratio and the location is clean and prestigious. Being a little picky, I would say that we could have expected a warmer welcome in this kind of place: we were seated... More

We invited our family for a nice lunch on the weekend at the Mini Palais. It was our first time there and we did not regret our choice. The environment is great, big space, modern, confortable. The location is also unique, on the side of the Grand Palais, next to the Petit Palais and small walk from the Champ Elysees,... More

Dropped by at lunchtime but did not have a booking. Receptionist told us to come back in 45 mins and we could not wait at the bar hang a drink. Whilst I was using the toilets my husband overheard a conversation whereby some new walk -ins asked to wait at the bar. I then again asked to wait at the... More

Live in Paris. Have been twice. Went yesterday for coffees and gourmandises around 3-3:30 pm. Quickly seated on the terrace. Then the wait begun. Finally got the attention of a waiter. Who replied with an attitude that "she will come soon". Then he stood by the entrance to the terrace doing nothing. After some time a waitress started talking to... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant in October. Although we were 45 min late the maître d gave us a table without extra hassle. The dinner for two including wine was 110 euros which I think was pretty amazing value. If I were to go again I would make an effort to dress up as this is the place... More

A staple every time I am in Paris. I love the atmosphere and the bar is top notch. The bartender Alex makes great drinks with great service. After spending a few different days over different visits having drinks I decided to bring my parents and friends for dinner and the beautiful terrace. The service was awful. The server was rude...
