Second time coming here with the wife. You order food that comes from their main restaurant across the street. Sort through thousands of books for sale. Have a great drink from the bar. Loved the atmosphere. Great concept! Came once now in February and back...More

Lunch at Les Philosophes was exceptional - the food fresh and delicious, the service - well, it's Paris. Had a duck that transcends description and a creme of cauliflower soup that was divine. Highly recommend.
