An elegant discreet atmosphere. Since our dinner reservation was a bit late for our meal habits, we regretfully limited the order for just two curses. But what a meal! The main curses were exquisite, perfect in every detail, the complementary dishes made to confirm the sheaf’s "craftsmanship" and the desert an original and tasty surprise! The only complain I have... More

I'm always a little nervous about fine dining outside of my home country (UK) as quite often regional tasted don't necessarily translate. But what a treat was in store at Restaurant Francais.

One of my top 3 favorite restaurants in the world. Service second to nowhere! Helpful doesn't begin to describe the sommelier (and assisting in service) Mr. Mouzon, and the rest of the waiters. I chose the 5 course recommended menu (as opposed to the 7, since I was dining alone) and asked that the sommelier choose 5 different wines to... More

My husband celebrated his birthday here in early December. We had the tasting menu together with the suggested wines. The food was excellent, quite delicious and beautifully served by well trained waiting staff. The Sommelier was very well knowledgeable and my husband, who himself is a connoisseur of wines, really enjoyed discussing the different wines with him. I think it... More

My husband made the reservation ahead to make sure that our dietary requests were met. We were so delighted that they went extra miles to make sure that my bread was gluten-free.(We've been to top restaurants and other Micheline star restaurants before, but our dietary requests were never fully met. It was more like-you try my food the way I... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent dinner at Restaurant Francais in the Steigenberger Hof. I enjoyed the suggested four course menu while my wife ordered oysters and sole. The chef's Michelin star is well earned and perhaps he deserves more. Our dinning experience ranked with the best we have enjoyed in Europe and the US. The staff was friendly... More

With great anticipation we booked this restaurant for a 40th birthday celebration. We arrived in a festive mood and promptly ordered almost $1,000 in wine. Given the spending and the special day one might expect some good service, especially when a tasting menu costs $175USD per person, sadly we were mistaken. The sommelier made a poor selection on a 300... More
