Only had breakfast at Le First, and the buffet was good and pretty much the same thing for the several mornings we were there. You can get a window seat with a view of Jardin des Tuileries across the street, but in January it was a little barren. The buffet had a reasonable variety of things but it was not... More

To be fair, this place is not bad, but as a 4/5 stars place it should be more delicious, tasty and attractive. The place is elegant for sure and the stuff so friendly. The presentation was beautiful but the food was not so delicious as it should be!

We have eaten many times at le First at the Westin. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and offered a wide range of foods for everyone's pallet. We decided to have Christmas dinner at this restaurant. It was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. Portion sizes were perfect. Service is always great here.

Was expecting a great dinner, the food quality was worse than bad, the waiter felt the service was great even if the food took over an hour and the fish was to tough to eat...May be just a bad night for the kitchen....

We had a dinner for 4 people at First restaurant. We hadn't any reservation and only walked-in. Service is awesome and very professional, food is very good and the restaurant decoration is great as it looks like an old fashioned cigars bar. Recommend this address for a casual dining option not too pricey but very good though.

This is the Westin's restaurant, breakfast and lunch are pretty much as expected. I was however, delighted with the dinner menu. The salmon and quinoa in curry was amazing. I would go back just for that dish. Service was nice but no better than expected.
