The food was amazing. The chef prepared Act 1 (first course), 2 (main course), and 3 (dessert) in great detail. Each course was superb. Service was excellent.

First evening in Paris and after using this restaurant a few times with guests tried it personally and not disappointed. Great menu selection, with starters of sea bream and prawn ravioli followed by rissoto and veal - all beautifully presented and delicious. Staff very attentive and friendly, all outside on a wonderful, warm evening. Pretty much a perfect meal!

We enjoyed the Sunday buffet after a noon concert. There was a variety of food, all well prepared. The restaurant atmosphere was pleasant. If we are in Paris again, we will plan to return.

Tres magnifique! It was a highlight of our trip. Beautiful food, gorgeous decor - the perfect start to an evening at the ballet.

We came here in the evening and I loved the setting. It's an old building which has a contemporary fit out. The outside space was very good and needs to be exploited. The bar staff all round were very friendly and we didn't have to wait long for a drink. Inside was a cool club which was quite packed. The... More

I've been placed next to a women who had his dog sitting on her chair and eating from her plate. I don't put it in the picture as it was so disgusting. Nightmare experience and one question to the manager: who can you oblige customers to eat in a such uncomfortable situation? There is no respect for customers in Paris.

Just had dinner at L'Opera two nights ago. Never heard of the place, so didn't know what to expect. My wife ordered fish and a mille-feuille for dessert, while I had a steak and a chocolate cake. We had a Bellini and a Pick-Me-Up as starting drinks. The food was pretty good and we certainly enjoyed our meals, as we... More

Went with a group of friends for the prix fixe dinner. Never been to the Opera House, was very pleased with decor, and even the little bit of architectural details visible from our table upstairs, by far the best part of the experience there. I arrived late, server was very accomodating, took my order and ensured my food came the... More

I have enjoyed sitting looking out over the place and the Palais Garnier while having a good meal. The restaurant reserves the top with the wall of glass views for people eating meals, the bottom is for those ordering drinks. I always like to relax there and watch all the activity around the area and I love the architecture of... More

The bad news is that this restaurant isn't inside the Palais Garnier, but the good news is that it isn't inside the Palais Garnier. So, the downside is that here you can't start your meal pre-performance, then reclaim your table to carry on during the intermissions/intervals as you can in some other opera houses. But, on the plus side, you... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
