Location and contact

Journey to the Paris of the Belle Epoque, in the golden age of the Grands Boulevards district, Au Petit Riche was created in 1854, as a nod to the great Café Riche of the Boulevard des Italiens. Rebuilt in 1880 after a fire that burned the entire street Le Peletier, Au Petit Riche began its second act under the impetus of a new owner, which gives it its refined decor and its soil: the Loire. Today, Au Petit Riche is the meeting place for businessmen and art collectors from Drouot.

We were recommended to this restaurant by the hotel concierge. What an excellent recommendation!!! We didn’t have a reservation but they took us anyway. The food was excellent along with the service. The salmon and the cream brûlée awesome.

Terrific food ambience and character in a traditional French restaurant. The service was excellent as was the food. An added bonus was the very interesting people we met that were seated around us.

Great food, generous portions, large wine list (mostly from Loire region), cozy, even had a vegetarian option (lasagna). And the onion soup was the cheesiest I’ve ever had. Service was unfortunately typical too - hard to get water refills or any other attention. But if...More

The restaurant is divided into several rooms, though the divider walls are part glass so you can see around. The arrangement makes for an intimate feel and reduces noise. The menu is classic French: escargot, homemade pate, steak au poivre, etc. Everything we had was...More

Very enjoyable dinner: very nice ambiance and attention, and food was good and correct, though not particularly special. All in all, a good experience.
