My first review was for the restaurant. This review is about the specialty shop. It's a beautiful boutique offering the gourmet specialties that makes Maxims unique. The macarons and chocolates are a cut above the rest. I'm looking forward to indulging in my first cup of Maxims richly roasted Arabica coffee blend.
The gentleman who welcomed me into the shop became my host. He was like an ambassador for all things Maxims! He had extensive knowledge of each item on the selling floor. I appreciate the insightful and delightful experience that he provided me. I'm not sure if I can mention his full name, but it begins with the letter A and ends with the letter N.
On a final note, there's a bit of confusion about the location. Maxims De Paris, isn't located inside the Louvre Museum. You do not have to purchase a ticket for the Louvre Museum in order to access the shop. Maxims De Paris is actually inside of a shopping mall very near to the Louvre.

Stumbled upon this while exiting the Louvre and thought it was a bit of a tourist trap and that the macarons would be "ehh," but after taste testing Macarons at 5 places, these were by far the best! Seriously worth a stop!

They had a beautiful selection and my only regret was not buying more.

My main reason to dine at Maxims wasn't the food. Instead, it was to bask in Maxims' Mystique. It was like dining inside of a sophisticated, high end art museum. The decor and atmosphere creates an ambiance, that teasingly invites you to indulge in the experience!!!!

I Went there today after visiting the Louvre. I got 8 macaroons that looked good but upon making it back to my hotel I was annoyed- they were really stale. I had to just toss half of them as I was not going to eat stale food. What a waste of €12. I do not recommend this place at all.

Dear Annie, I'm really confused about your comment ! All our fresh specialities (macarons, caneles, "gâteaux de voyage") are daily fresh ! Moreover, we sell the macarons 2€ each, or in gift-boxes with a minimum of 6 pieces for 12,50€. Are you sure you've bought these macarons in our store ? Looking forward to your reply, Regards

This company is trying to take down an independent philanthropist in the UK by claiming their names are the same (when clearly this is not the case). The UK brand gives its profits to help the poor. You should be absolutely disgusted with yourselves Maxims! Trying to destroy and cost a man thousands who is only doing good and helping people in the world!

Very fancy, the attention is 5 stars. The food is amazing, the ambiance is eccentric but sublime. It has very little number of tables and separated certain distance, which makes it feel more private and exclusive (I liked it, since we were having a nice family time). Basically, any dish you order will be tasty, and at the end they bring a cart with different cakes - all very good. I really recommend it.

We visited this shop after the Louvre, as you pass it as you exit.
We were greeted warmly by the assistant with a sample and then left to browse the large choice of chocolate goods. When I was struggling to make a choice, the assistant offered further samples of the chocolate I was considering and we brought some fabulous chocolate home!

I did a double take when I saw the Maxim's concept shop near the Carrousel entrance to the Louvre. It hadn't been here when I was last on this level a few years ago. But there it now was, dripping in red, white and gold. The design, colors and window display brought me in; the products enticed me to stay.

I wandered from macarons to chocolates to blocks of Foie gras to champagne and still had a ways to go. But I remained well fortified for the journey after eating a free candy sample (rich and delicious), offered by a gracious employee. All the staff I interacted with here were topnotch, giving assistance, helping customers to choose, but never pushing merchandise.

Everything here is beautifully presented. I especially liked all the red boxes and the lovely art work. The space is nicely used with a high ceiling opening the room up so that it doesn't seem crowded when many customers mingle.

The Louvre awaited, but I knew where I would return after visiting the museum.
