We picked this restaurant on a chilly Sunday evening (when many restaurants closed) because it highlights some of its courses as vegetarian. One of us is vegetarian and northern France is not easy for veggies! Initial impressions were appealing; jolly table cloths and friendly - if informal- service. It is a good idea to have local wines available by the... More

Food was okay, but not excellent. We started with foie gras and received way too much. Later, the fish was cold and my bouillabaisse looked more like a yellow thai curry. Selection of cheese was great and so was the wine. However, the most disturbing part of this experience were the constant unapproving looks by the rather stressed owners and... More

Husband in kitchen (sometimes bring plates to table) looking burned out. Wife in dining room (bossing a paid staffer) looking exhausted. A few arguments occurred within patrons ear shot. Food seemingly OK. However, we both got sick in the middle of the night. What was that about? We requested the fish from one dish with the condiment of a second... More

Chez Bagot is very good and we had a lovely meal there, but we didn't think is was quite the best in Nancy. The ris de veau was the most memorable dish.

It was late saturday and we had not arranged any reservations. They were very nice in finding us a nice place for dinner. The... More

My partner and I have visited 'Le Chardon Bleu' on more than one occasion and have never been disappointed. The food is reasonable value, the quality quite exceptional and the service friendly. On a previous visit, whilst dining al fresco on the pavement outside, I ordered the cheese board. They quite literally set up a table and opened up what... More
