“worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were in Paris for a weekend and based on our budget and our location, La Casse Noix seemed to be jumping off the page at us. We got into town about 1pm on a Friday and looking up on their website we realized we were probably going to be out of luck. It is closed Saturday and Sunday, and without reservations, we weren't very hopeful for a table.
Since the Eiffel Tower was on our list, we stopped in on our way there. We were told they were finishing up lunch (every table was taken) and that for the evening, they only had a 10pm seating available. Sold! We didn't think we'd get in, so this was definitely good news.
Our travels ended that day with being very tired and a cheese plate served with a bakery worth of bread and a couple of drinks. By the time we got back to the hotel, we were wiped. A day that began before 5am was taking its toll and a nap was in order. We could have easily cancelled, we were tired and groggy, and full of bread and cheese. A nice dinner wasn't at the top of the list anymore, but since we made reservations, we felt obliged to honour them.
We are glad we did. 10pm and the energy and hustle and bustle gave us our second wind.
Basically there is a a la carte menu with app., main and desert with about 5 choices each. In addition, there is a blackboard brought to your table with a similar number of choices.
We were next to the kitchen which was a treat, and everything coming out of their looked to be something special. Our plates were something special. alive with flavour. Every bite was to be savoured...from start to finish.
Price came in well under 100 Euro with wine and water and was best meal we had in Paris. Service was a little bit rapid fire, not rushed, maybe just brisk. We were tired and it was late, so it suited us fine.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I just got back from dinner here. Definitely our best meall in Paris so far! We tried to go last night but didn't have a reservation so we made one last night for today. They have a fixed price menu and for 32 euros a piece, we got to choose an appetizer, main dish and dessert. For both my husband and I our bill totalled 92 euros for 2 3 course meals, a bottle of wine and a bottle of water.

I got a butternut squash soup, pork belly entree, and baked apples with caramel ice cream and merangues for dessert. My husband got this salad with chicken sausage, peas and greens for an appetizer, a beef steak dish with the most amazing potatoes for his entree and a baked molten chocolate lava cake for dessert.

I would highly highly recommend this place!!!

“Cozy room, authentic and delicious food and a wonderfully warm staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by our nearby hotel, this was our first dinner in Paris. Exhausted from arriving from the states that morning, we went at 7:30pm and were one of only three other tourist tables. The restaurant quickly became packed with locals between 8-8:30 pm, which is always a good sign. To begin, the Chicken Liver Pâté served with as much French bread as you'd like. Very reasonably priced wines and a fantastic 3 course meal where you can mix up the choices for a small upgrade. Our meal for two was only 83 euros including a carafe of wine and one upgrade to my husband's meal. The staff was so wonderful to Americans and made us feel right at home. Merci beau coup!

“I fell in love with this excellent bistro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We had our best dinner in Paris in this lovely bistro. Everything was just great: the atmosphere, the service, the food, value. Service was very friendly and our waiter was smiling all the time. Very relaxed athomphere. And what a food! So delicious! I will go back here next time visiting Paris. I recommended this bistro to my colleague and he loved it also.
