I visited Restaurant Français for a celebratory lunch with several guests. The restaurant's interior was elegant but still welcoming, which my guests appreciated. We ordered from the three course menu featuring a myriad of original dishes, and each was delicious. I use that adjective sincerely and carefully, as the food was very, very good.

Nice setting in a great hotel. Ambiance is nice, tables are really spread out so its very quiet and tranquil for dinner. Service is very good. As for the food I must say I was disappointed in three ways: First its a really limited menu, really limited. I think there were 9 items on the menu including the two deserts,... More

FOOD: We went here for our first wedding anniversary and ordered the prix fixe menu. It was lovely and every dish was elegant, delicious and unforgettable. Fresh and seasonal, just as it should be for a restaurant of this caliber. SETTING: Intimate and beautiful. I felt like I was in a different era. The noise level was low. SERVICE: A... More

Excellent food, presented in a very esthetically pleasing way. The service is efficient, friendly and low key. The whole experience is German execution at its best. A top product served with seemingly effortless, yet, world class execution.

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
