For our first night in France, we wanted to have a really special meal and this restaurant did not disappoint. We were very tired having arrived at 6:30 AM in Paris from the US, so a tasting menu made choosing our dinner easy. Unlike my husband, I do not eat meat, but the chef already had alternatives for pescatarians. The... More

Some very successful plates, but enough gaffes and poor execution to prevent a recommendation or a return visit. Modern, and a bit overly bright decor. Three menus from 47€ to 95€ (plus an all lobster option at 99€); we took the middle road at 69€ for five courses. Portions are modest. Amuses were rather bland little nibbles, beautiful but with...

What a treat! I went to Origine with my daughter yesterday @ lunch time. We had the choice between 5 menus (from 95 euros to 37) we took the "découverte" (discovery) @ 47 euros. It was delicious, from the "mise en bouche" to the dessert! We also took the pairing wine which were really interesting and matched the food perfectly.... More

Attractive exterior facade & interior decor. Staff highly professional & pleasant.(including the owner) Each beautifully presented dish, comprising of the highest quality products, left a long-lasting mixture of tastes in the mouth. Equally impressive range of quality wines to match. Public utilities impeccably clean. This is not a restaurant for clients who adore copious quantities of food on their plate,but... More

In Rouen for a special weekend, we first called to be told the Restaurant was fully booked - we called on Thursday 18 January for the Friday which was a bit ambitious. We were however called back on Friday morning: there had been a cancellation and they had already booked our table. Great start. As soon as we arrived, it... More

If service in Paris is like a nose stricken with the flu--stuffed-up and snotty--then Origine comes across like a long breath of fresh air. The young and energetic staff were courteous, humorous, helpful and attentive. The sommelier's recommendation of a white Corbières (over pricier white Burgundies) was not only excellent value, but perhaps the best wine of our two week... More

The food was perfect, but our party of 5 was one of the first to arrive and one of the last to be able to leave. A bit to long time between the 10 couses and a very slow service to give us the bill (it should be easy to divide it in 5 equal parts) and even we had... More
