“Great Value in Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I picked Chez Marie Louise based on TripAdvisor's reviews. We were on a month long stay in France so we were not in a hurry. We walked most of the way from St. Germain to the 10th Arrondissement. The area where the restaurant is located is not great. Based on that we lowered our expectations for the experience and the food. When we passed the restaurant we were surprised that it looked so "average".
Inside was different in that the welcome was warm and when we were served the food was excellent. But, it still looked like a NYC dive-bar.
The service was a bit amateurish with a young man learning his trade but we were patient with him and it was not a bad experience at all. I did tell the owner that this was among the best food I had in Paris this trip.
There was a woman sitting outside the restaurant dining but also doing what seems like most Parisians do, she was smoking and blowing smoke into the restaurant. That nearly ruined my dining experience. Expect this wherever you have outdoor dining in France.

“Hoped for better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

After 4 days of wonderful food, we hoped to complete our perfect trip to Paris on a high. Unfortunately, it was not to be. Excellent food was let down by very average service. The waiters were simply going through the motions with no real passion. Most obvious was the desire to rush us through our courses, to the point we simply skipped dessert and left.

“Good, but no wow anymore.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It was our second time at the restaurant.
The food was good, but a bit pricy. Crowded.
Excellent service, but we didn´t get the "Wow" we got the first time we visited the place.
I am afraid we won´t return there again.

“Great host and lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

This place is small but so welcoming and Christophe could not do enough for us. We are both Gluten and dairy intolerant and Christophe sat with us and went through every detail of the menu, plus he recomended an excellent wine. This was the first time I had tried chocolate sorbet as a non dairy eater and it was so good, I bought a sorbet maker when I got home! We really enjoyed the ambiance of this place and Cristohpe is a tribute to it's success!
