We got a reservation at Septime a couple of months after Covid lockdown, after having had in the past not much luck at getting a reservation. We had pretty high expectations, because this place is extremely hyped, but we were very pleasantly surprised that those...expectations were met. The food was spectacular and hands down the best we've had in France in our year here. Highlights were creamed artichoke with blanched almonds, truffle and sumac, an aubergine dish with mushroom jus and cuttlefish, a vegetarian cabbage main with flowers and preserved peppers, and a verbena flower ice cream with honey. An excellent fancy option in France if you are vegetarian. Yum!More

We were invited here by our business parter and were surprised by the variety of the French kitchen. I knew that they're special, but this has been excellent. We had several dished of fish, sea food and meat. Nicely decorated and made on the point....From fish to meat, everything was like butter and easy to eat and enjoy.More

Took me years to secure a reservation, but it did not disappoint, even with all the build-up. Very interesting dishes, using ingredients that are so simple into creating truly mind-opening food. Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. Could use better wines, some more meat...and we did not get butter (no one did on the night we were there), but apart from that, it is truly everything advertised and more.More

After reading earlier reviews and articles on this restaurant, we came in expecting to be wowed by the flavours of the dishes. Unfortunately, despite the amazing and tentative service the actual dishes were uninspiring and unimpressive. The wine paring was awful, looking at some of...the wines of vino, our table discovered most of the pairings served to us came from the bottom 1%. Personally, this is one of the poorer performing Michelin restaurants I have been to. Although, I can say that the menu changes seasonally and it may have been by chance that there’s been a hiccup in February.More

Totally unpretentious, with really friendly and professional staff. Simply industrial ambiance. The food is great and enjoyable. Very fair prices for a Michelin star place. Wine pairing has room for improvement. Overall... don’t miss this one!

We arrived about ten minutes late for our reservation and received a very warm welcome and seated right away. The space is modern, well arranged and modern music played at a comfortable level in the background. Most of the team spoke perfect English and did...a wonderful job explaining each dish and the wine paired with it. Every course was delicious, well presented and well portioned. My wife and I have tried to eat venison dozens of times, without success,and here we had sugar cured, venison tartare and it melted in our mouths. This was our best meal in Paris and well worth the price.More

Came for lunch with my 15-year old son. Loved the ambiance and decor, restaurant had a sunny and inviting vibe, worn wooden tables and plaster-peeling walls. Food was delicious and thoughtful, enjoyed everything we had.

Sometimes you just enter a place and you know it's right. Friendly reception, elegant simplicity. No bling, just simple, nice and good. Every plate a pleasure, planted forever in my memory. Impeccable wines. The barbecued chicory with paper-thick lardo served with a bell-pepper and mussel...sauce is a lifetime reminder. Thank you!More

Septime is a very good restaurant - they deserve their Michelin Star. Nevertheless, I do not understand the feature in Forbes 50 best list. Don't get me wrong - food is delicious and perfectly crafted, wine selection is special with some hidden gems. Compared to...other restaurants on the Forbes list, I think that one is a bit behind.More

The small blue building on a one way street is hard to find with no real sign and address, but try a little harder and the results are worth it. Each dish opens the palette to a world of adventure. We started with a small...amuse bouche that warmed me from the cold Paris day. Followed by a series of indescribable plates all of which were as good as the last and makes you want more. The option cheese plate can be shared and though it’s not big after so many delights your high from the previous delights. The best part of the experience besides cardamom cream is the staff. They speak English so your not left to your own struggles. They make a point of exposing each dish in detail and compliment you on your wine choices!More

Yes. That’s what it means. But would be better, when you get in Paris, call then to certify. A French friend did it for us
