We came for lunch at baieta and didn’t knew what to expect, but when we opened the door we knew that the meal is going to be good. The place is designed beautifully and in the highest levels, from the furniture to the cutlery. We...ordered the initiation menu that includes 4 courses, 1 appetizer, 2 main courses and 1 dessert. Before the lunch I thought that I will still be hungry because Michelin restaurants takes high prices for small amount of food, but after this meal I couldn’t eat until dinner because I was so full. If you ever in Paris and want to eat at a very high quality restaurant, not in a very high price and enjoy every second, this would be my recommendation for you. Bravo chef Julia Sedefgdjian and the crew!More

Outstanding service, attentive sommelier, true Michelin quality foods—creative appetizers (both the mackerel and the bonito were wonderful), exquisite rendition of bouillabaisse, excellent wine options. My husband and I experienced 13 Michelin restaurants in our month long trip to France, including several 2 and 3 stars,...and Baieta ranks very high. It’s definitely tops in terms of value for money. Kudos to the entire team.More

We decided to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary in Paris, and wanted to visit some popular restaurants during our stay. One of our choices was Baieta, and what a choice it was! Booking has been made via the internet, and it was pretty straightforward (we...booked ~2 weeks in advance, we were asked to shift our intended 'slot' to a later time): booking made, confirmation email, then a reminder on the evening of the booking. Excellent. The place was very busy at the time of our arrival, we had to wait for roughly 5 minutes for our table to be prepared. Service was pretty attentive, friendly and helpful - and although the place was full, we did not have to wait too long for the dishes to arrive. Quality ingredients, professional technology, amazing flavors. Everything was excellent, this is a highly recommended place for an exceptional dinner. One remark: the restaurant is quite small, and tables are close to each other, so this may not be a good choice for confidential conversations, but in every other aspect it is just perfect. It would be great to go back one day :)More

This year’s trip was highlighted by amazing work, artistry, showmanship, and precision provided by La Maison, Jacques Genin, and Chef Nishi’s second child (a la Chef Naito) at Pilgrim. Unfortunately, however, this review is about Baieta. We had read about Julia Sedefjian well-ahead of our...visit. Her profile printed in the New York Times, along with other reviews from Parisian food blogs, were glowing since the inception of the new-yet-traditional Niçoise cuisine. As such, the schedule was set. We contacted the establishments several months in advance in an effort to procure our spots. Ya-Ya, La Maison, Baieta, Pilgrim, and another well-spent visit to Jacques Genin were on the docket. Plainly, our experience at Baieta was only memorable in the sense that, for all the wrong reasons, we will never forget it. 1) At the time of making the reservation, we were requested to pay some money in advance ~$160. Well, although this is the first time this has been requested, we felt it was reasonable for a small-format restaurant that believes in properly sourcing fresh ingredients. So no REAL problem there. 2) The problem arose, however, on the day of the reservation when we were called with the news that the menu would be “restricted” to only several selections if we were to not select the prix fixe. I will mention that we often do the prix fixe, but in this case we wanted to order à la carte. To spare you the details, this was a 15-minute conversation. The waitress was a dour 20-24 year old who could only be described as an exponentially Millennial “millennial” – who seemed desperately disgruntled with her station in life. I used to have her job at that age. It was one of the best times of my life. From her, however, there were ZERO descriptions of dishes, ZERO warmth, and ZERO smiles. 3) We were eventually allowed to order off of the full a la carte menu, but again, this was after great resistance. *Credit to The French: I think that in America most people would have left the restaurant by this point; but our Parisian friends did a magnificent job of mediating the process (they were almost always the interpreters and conversationalists, although most all of us make an effort and are interested in speaking/learning French) 4) I would almost be certain that there is a standard code for fingernail-appearance at a restaurant slinging haute cuisine. This was not the case from our server. Half-painted, highly-chipped nails do not give a sense of clean lines. Just take the paint off…or all the way on…either will do. 5) Half of what we ordered was great (positive). Specifically, however, the boeuf was cooked to the level of a briquette on the outside and as dry as a saltine-cracker on the inside. 6) We won’t describe in detail the full gravy-boat of bouillabaisse sauce that was fully spilled over 2 of our friends and their coats. 7) Again. ZERO smiles. ZERO descriptions. Very little in the way of characteristics that we have come to expect from Michelin-level restaurants, in our collective opinion. In conclusion, several of us have replayed this experience over – both individually, and conversationally as a group. We feel badly about writing a negative review, as we are generally in the business of writing positive ones (as we will for Pilgrim and La Maison). As such, it is unusual for us to leave a Parisian restaurant with a sour taste in our mouths and hearts. My prediction is that this restaurant isn’t there 2 years from now without some major leadership or philosophical remodel. Perhaps even sooner.More

Really good Michelin star restaurant. Went there for lunch and choose the tasting menu. It was a really good choice because it let you try different things on a very affordable price. Also chose the wine pairing. It was very nice, however, as I'm not...used to drink alcohol, so, it was too much wine for me. Staff was really attentive & food was deliciousMore

Had a delicious dinner here. Friendly, efficient service—outstanding young Moroccan waiter, spoke perfect English & was so helpful. Food was excellent from the amuse bouche to the octopus salad to the chef’s version of Bouillibaise. Excellent Domaine Ott Rose to go with. Dessert was good...not great, entire eve with all those courses & wine cost about 220 Euros. Beautiful presentation, quiet room. Will return.More

Baeta has many points to recommend it: a welcoming room, a reasonable noise level, fresh and inventive ingredients and a generally pleasant vibe. We went with friends and most people were happy with their dinners. I would particularly recommend the egg appetizer and the bouillabaisse,...or Baetabaisse, which was probably the best I've ever eaten. The rouille was perfect--creamy and not too spicy, the fish was plentiful, varied and cooked correctly and the actual soup was a wonderful blend that was so delicious that I wished our waitress has taken the time to empty the pitcher it arrived in. Some of the other dishes--notably the octopus appetizer and the maigre main course- -were less successful, not because they were bad in any way, but simply because they were less interesting. The only reason I am not giving this restaurant an "excellent" rating is because of the service. Our waitress was flip and harried. Her borderline disrespectful attitude cast a pall over the meal and should not be tolerated. We were a table, by the way, of 5 French speakers.More

Had a good meal here with a fair few issues that you wouldn't expect with a michelin starred restaurant. Positives Nice 7 course tasting menu with a variety of food - highlights were the egg starter and fish main. Reasonable value at 85 euros for...the food Nice decor Friendly non-stuffy staff Complimentary water and replaced bread freely Negatives Too hot in the restaurant - the fan said it was 26 degrees which is just too hot for most people to enjoy a meal Wonky table - to be fair this was swapped when we raised it but that meant another customer got it instead Toilet door didn't lock - homemade sign up saying if the door is closed it's occupied. It would cost 10 euros to get a small latch to sort this out while they get the door fixed. A personal thing but both desserts were fruity. I know it's summer but it would have been nice to have more of a contrast e.g. Chocolate, toffee, coffee, biscuit etc They didn't have the wine I ordered first. I know these things can happen but it added to the disappointment when I ordered a wine at around 45 euros and the most similar wine would have cost 70 euros so we ended up with a wine that was totally different for around 45 euros So overall a good meal but I suspect the star wouldn't last if I'd been the inspector tonight!More
