Yes, it's undergone a change, toward higher prices and cold neon ambiance. We were severely disappointed by our experience, perhaps even more so because we remember the warm and welcoming old "La Cigale Recamier." Gone are the white linen tablecloths and napkins, replaced by paper and hard surfaces, along with prices increases ($60+/person) and nouvelle cuisine names for old classics... More

The place, which was always a favorite in Paris -- and attracted local and international celebrities -- has gone through a major revamping. Its decor is new, sleeker and more modern, with a design, streamlined atmosphere. Its menu has also been revamped: the restaurant still serves its famous soufflés -- really the best anywhere, and the most original -- but... More

Largely driven by the desire to find somewhere for my vegetarian partner and mainly calls that resulted in nothing suitable for vegetarians and meat eaters we came across this place. Based solely on their Soufflé menu, they have a wide selection of vege options such as cheese/mushroom/spinach Soufflés as well as meat (chicken/lamb e.t.c). We were late arrivals at about... More

I love this place, discovered on an earlier trip to Paris a few years ago. The service is typically French, in other words dismissive, verging on rude, particularly if you are not French. The soufflés though are like food for the soul. My last baby had left for university and feeling bereft Paris and soufflé were the answer. The mushroom... More

Make a reservation and try to go early or later avoiding the peak hours. This place is a must every time a go to Paris. My favorite meal is Ravioli petits legumes, filet de boeuf and of course the Soufflé au grand Marnier! The staff is moody and I don't mind. You are in Paris it is part of the... More

A new visit at La Cigale, and still the same warm ambiance and great food, for a sweet price ! As always, the soufflés are incredibly creative and they change from season to season, but everything else is also very good, not to speak about the fantastic deserts. Some people complain about the staff, and truth is they can go... More

This is what could be described as a "typical" Parisian restaurant with one major difference. The truly amazing soufflé’s. On arrival my host politely asked for another, more quiet table and was treated like he asked the most terrible thing imaginable. The entire staff are not the friendliest people in the World but that seems all part of the "show".... More
