The servers and the chef couldn't care less about the people who go there. Space cadets! The food was beyond late, people who got there later also got their food first. It was a perfect example of how the staff can totally ruin a night...out.More

I rolled my eyes at some of the one star reviews (in English) below, thinking they must be exaggerations by overly critical folks. And so for a few weeks I hesitated to post this review. But on reflection, and after reading the three recent critical...reviews in French, I feel some sort of obligation to the community to confirm that at a Monday dinner a few weeks ago we, and our multiple companions, found Yard shockingly bad. We ordered all eight food items on the chalkboard. Two or three were passable. Many, including tomato salad (simple and looking beautiful) were bland and under seasoned. Boulots were good, huge, yet a bit tough/ rubbery. But that can happen. Then there were three substantial food problems: We placed three orders for “Marinated” beef. Under the sliced beef was a combination of lentils and corn — decent but overcooked and amateurish. One plate of beef was cooked properly. The other two servings were literally raw, cool room temp, inside — making them unpleasantly chewy in the extreme. We prefer rare beef, but I could find only three of four outside pieces to eat. Another companion's was identical to mine. We piled our slices into a mound, eventually asked for some foil, and he took it home to properly cook later. Two orders of bar turned out to be a generous whole slice of the back tail area. It was largely bone and vastly undercooked -- mushy and translucent. It seemed to have been poached in plain water with very little or no seasoning. To the side was essentially undressed and raw / rather metallic-tasting fennel. We like fennel, but this was not a good match. The capper was two orders of the worst risotto that any of us had ever experienced. It resembled tasteless and overcooked gray / brown mush. Perhaps a touch of brown sugar or maple syrup would’ve helped make this a passable breakfast item. The inattentive but hip waitstaff never asked what was wrong when they finally woke from gazing at the ceiling or other apparently appreciative (or clueless?) diners and picked up our partially nibbled plates. But did the wines save the day? No. Of the four different natural wines we were served by the glass, the two whites were volatile, fowl, and undrinkable. Yes, we know and appreciate distinctive and edgy wines. We enjoy oxidative wines from the Jura and Loire. But the wine drinking experience should be, in addition to broadening and educational, at least somewhat pleasant. These two whites had become monsters in the bottle, and could not possibly have been what the winemakers intended when inserting the cork months earlier. (Maybe they ha been cooked by poor storage during the summer heat waves?) And yet the staff, true to form, did not seem to pick up on any of these problems when they finally picked up our largely unconsumed glasses. A funky red Beaujolais (and we do like a bit of funk) had absorbed way too much of the barnyard’s fecal component. The final red, Vers la Maison rouge 2016 (Savoie) was rather pleasantly sauvage and distinctive — and yet seemed highly priced for what it was. (The magnum, from which our glasses were poured, was €95.) Was this an off night? Apparently the head chef was not in the kitchen. But that’s no excuse. The best I can say is: this was a kitchen well in sync with its front of house and wine staff. Finally, speaking of “Sauvage,” those interested in truly good natural wines -- and much more attentive cooking and staff -- might try the lovely and lively restaurant (and across the street wine shop) of that name in the 6eme.More

This place is tiny, and has a neighborhood vibe. The food was good, and the wine was better. All natural amazing wines. I really enjoyed it and the staff tolerated my non-existent French. I will be back.

A small restaurant with a busy cave nearby, crowd overflowing into street. The counter was full of fresh vegetables from the market. Then came the food. My mozzarella came with a plate of tomato segments, beefy and fleshy but without much tomato flavoring, with an...average taste of mozzarella cheese, nothing special. My merlin fish was cut through the backbone with bones in the middle, plain, with segments of tomato similar to the tomato salad, ie, flavorless. The lamb and entrecote both came with cold lifeless potato chunks, like potato salad. The vegetarian among us ordered tofu, eggplant and other vegetables, in high hope after viewing the colorful raw vegetables on the counter. Alas!—a brown soup of brown vegetabales came in a bowl. Though told the sauce was not meat based, the meat eaters’ tasting could not vouch for that. It was otherwise untouched. This was not picked up on by the oblivious waiting staff. (they also had plated a table for 4, when our reservation on line was for 5). The wine list prices were expensive, our rose was dark and slightly acidic, not a wine style I favor ("natural" all too often is used as an excuse for poor wine). The food dishes also on the expensive side of moderate. All in all, a terrible disappointment.More

Following in the (large) footsteps of Action Bronson - fantastic place, veal chop (2kg) for 3 people incredibly good. Natural wines only (love!). Will go back every time I’m in Paris!

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our son's birthday (he is a chef elsewhere in Paris and wanted to see what Yard could do). It stands out for a number of reasons. First, the menu is excitingly different, and although not all the effects quite...come off, there is plenty to stimulate the palate. Second, the extensive wine list is (claimed to be) 100% organic, with no additives such as sulphites. Our starters were salmon with a cream sauce; tarama (smoked cod's roe cream) with fennel; and steak tartare. Mains were artichoke barigoule; octopus (one and a half tentacles!); and veal sweetbread. We had a bottle of red and a glass of white, and the bill came to Euros 135, so it is not cheap; but worth it for the different experience. Service was friendly (our waiter spoke good English). The noise level in the restaurant was moderately high, which might distract some people.More
