Very good food, cool reception

Traditional formal French dining room. We were the only people there at 7:30 pm but it was full by the time we left. The service was efficient, if not friendly. My meal of warm foie gras with asparagus and veal sweetbreads was delicious My husband had the "menu" of rabbit rillettes (delicious... read more

When walking past the passage restaurant there is a secret door on the left with no signs. Knock on it and a classic well dressed barman open the door. You enter in a classic night bar with smokey mirrors and dark brown leather arm chairs. There is jazz music playing but too small for life music. The cocktails are made... More

We were taken out by a client who uses this restaurant regularly, so we were expecting it to be good...but it was just divine. My husband is a vegetarian which can be a problem in France, but he had what he said was the best meal ever in a restaurant. They made him a crudité starter that looked amazing and... More

We were back at Le Passage last week and I still love the place. What a wonderful experience. Great food and fantastic service. It's a business restaurant, you can tell that from the clientele and it's clear they are regular visitors. It's a lovley discreet restaurant, with clever professional staff who know what they are doing. Highly recommended.

The service was terrible, although there were only 2 other tables occupied when we arrived, it took about 10 minutes just to get a menu and we had to flag down a waiter to do this. Our wine glasses were never not once refiled by the waiters, we did this ourselves. I had specified to have my meal broiled and... More

Having had a delightful experience in Le Passage 10 years ago, we decided to try it again. The decor still has its Bohemian charm with lopsided lampshades, burgundy, velvet drapes and mismatched tapestry chairs. But, the service was simply awful. The waiters are very young and are like automatons--they make no conversation and rattle off the contents of your plate... More

This modern, trendy restaurant located in the passage of an apartment building is excellent. Another recommendation to us by the concierge at the Hilton. The food and service was excellent.

Had a wonderful lunch at this upscale restaurant. We reserved by e-mail in advance and they had a great table for us in the elegant dining room. The service was very professional and the food was superb. All tables were filled and the other customers seemed to be locals and some were probably having a business type lunch. I order... More
