Unforgettable experience! Le Cinq dining area is very comfortable, very beautiful decorated and elegant! From the starter dish until the desert was so flavorful yet beautifully presented, truly plating ! Combinations of flavors brought amazing taste to the palette, simply brilliant works of the Chef!...Five star for the sommelier and the service team! Everyone is very attentive and pleasant. Serving and explaining every dish clearly and elegantly ! I and my partner was amazed by how everything moves efficiently yet harmoniously! The director of the restaurant Mr Beaumard such a pleasant gentleman, he came to our table a few times to make sure that everything is going smoothly, truly a five star service, Thank you !

Excellent food. Rapid efficient yet friendly service. Beautiful decor set within the grand four seasons hotel. Creative menu but extremely pricey.

Very good as one would expect. We celebrated meeting up in Paris for the first time post pandemic. Well worth the wait. Le Cinq is one of 3 Michelin* restaurants at the George V. Le Cinq blessed with 3*. Great to enjoy all of them...whilst staying here. Look out for quail + tonic water. Very good.More

Restaurant Le Cinq is without a doubt one of the finest restaurants on Earth and must be visited by anyone in Paris looking for the best of the best from a restaurant. The dining room is large and grand, set within the beautiful Hôtel George...V. When a pianist is playing in the gallery next to the restaurant you can hear this as you dine, which makes for a very comfortable and enjoyable experience. We started off with some canapés, the parmesan waffle being such a comforting thing with abundance of cheese flavour. The bread then came which was a selection of baguette, olive bread and a bread with seeds which was almost pastry like, similar to a croissant for example. These were impeccable and served with great butter, I can’t recall having better bread anywhere than this. All the dishes which followed were equally as impeccable as the bread we started with. I ate a gnocchi which melt in the mouth, the best I’ve had anywhere. The gratinated onions burst in the mouth to reveal a depth of flavour. The spaghetti timbale gratin was as decadent as can be, beautiful mushroom and truffle flavour and even topped with gold leaf. Cheese trolley was perfect. The desserts were all first class and the dessert trolley and the kouign-amann at the end of the meal with coffee was also fantastic. Service was as attentive I’ve encountered anywhere, yet discreet at the same time. Everyone was extremely friendly and talkative towards us. I’d like to mention a gentleman who previously worked in Oxford that made our evening extra special. The service is akin to a fine Swiss watch, everything runs so smoothly and perfectly. It is also worth noting that Le Cinq caters to vegetarians perfectly, so do please dine here if you don’t eat meat as you are guaranteed to eat one of the finest meals of your life. I cannot wait to return and I recommend Le Cinq to anyone who wishes to dine in what I think is easily one of the best of the best restaurants on earth. Christian Le Squer and his chefs in the kitchen are a dream team. A must visit!More

We celebrated our 10th anniversary dinner last evening, and as always Le Cinq was perfection. The setting is so refined and beautiful - and the immaculate service begins the moment you arrive at the reception podium. The staff is simply incredible, you want for nothing...- every need is met before you ask. On to the meal. The menu is continually innovative - and as great as the menu selections are, the additive extras that just come along with your meal would be the envy of most other Michelin restaurants. The wine menu is about the size of the King James Bible, with an incredible array of fabulous wines. Since the bride only drinks white, it was a 2020 Montrachet for her…just exquisite. Red for me, my favorite is a Chateauneuf-du-Pape - a 2016 was fantastic. The meal itself was sublime. The Prawns starter, as well as the onion au gratin were just amazing. The wagyu steak and the lobster entrees were exceptional. We enjoyed a brilliant cheese course, and closed with chocolate that was world-class. One thing I have to mention - when bread came around, one option was a flax seed bread. JUST HAVE IT. It’s perhaps the best bread I’ve ever eaten. Let me end where I started, the food is brilliant - but the service is simply unmatched. Incredible combination. A must do.More

Had dinner at Le Cinq on a Saturday night. We had a fantastic time with the entire staff working there, in particular Yan (spelling?) who proivded us with not only amazing service but great conversation as well. We did the tasting menu which was very...good along with the wine pairing. In retrospect, I think we probably should have ordered a bottle of wine instead. I am gluten free and they did a great job of accomodating me. A real great place to go to for a special occasion or just a special night out in Paris.More

Walking in is an experience. The fin de siecle splendor of the Four Seasons Hotel is a great setting for such a decadent dining experience. Gobelins, chandeliers, sky- high ceilings and plenty of gold transport you into the Belle Époque. Attentive waiters silently dart between...the tables. The room sparkling with crystal and silverware seems hushed and yet buzzing with activity at the same time. You know then that this evening will be a celebration. Surprisingly though the first few amuses bouches were rather insipid (I don’t really understand why) - but don’t worry, once the real dishes are coming, things turn around very quickly. The high lights keep coming thick and fast, climaxing in an unsurpassable morel tartellete, so divine you will hear the angels singing as it melts in your mouth. We were surprised to get our picture taking, which we received printed out in a card as we left - a rather luna-parkish moment a bit out of sync with the rest of the experience. For a moment the golden age feels gilded but don’t worry, the moment passes. Overall we had a grand evening, full of culinary delights and enjoyed ourselves very, very much. Thank you to the sommelier for the informative conversation, and the chef, Christian Le Squer, who joined our table for a while, for his art.More

Le Cinq is inside the 4 seasons and the dining hall is fantastically beautiful. It seems like the kinda old fashion glamourös but I assure you the food is not. My guest and I selected the tasting menu and not one course disappointed. Everything was...exceptional. The wait staff was exceptional. The price tag was exceptional $$$$$ so be prepared to spend around $1000.00 USD for tasting menu w/no alcohol. Oh but sooooooooooooooo worth the money and the experience. You cant get this kind of theater On Broadway!!!! The meal never seams to end with delicious things keep coming to the table. Be prepared to part with 3 to 4 hours of time for this wonderful 3 star Michelin experienceMore

We were looking forward to dining here for Christmas. It was a set menu for all tables that night. Unfortunately the dinner turned out to be one of the most uninspired, underwhelming meals we've ever had in any restaurant. The only course worth noting was...the turkey, which was cooked well. Every other course was served without a thought spared for the balance of the dish, or perhaps lacking any thought put into it at all. Delicate scallops and sea urchin (beautiful on its own) just drowned and lost in a sour lemon yoghurt. Jalapeño in chocolate for dessert which was as pointless as it was tasteless. The only things that worked well that evening - the wines, the sommeliers and the wait staff. The Christmas decor was reminiscent of a pleasure house with gaudy red lights lighting up the walls. Breads were served cold and very hard. Why? Even airlines serve their breads warmed. All in all a very disappointing, exceptionally overpriced dinner that was worth nothing more than its name. And if this continues, even that may not be worth much. Would not recommend.More

I have always wanted to dine here since 2017 when the restaurant was in its glory. We skipped it and went to Alain Ducasse which was disappointing as well. Came 2019, we skipped again and instead went to Pre Catelan (amazing!!) and L’Ambrosie- obnoxious!). So...this time around, we skipped Epicure to dine here instead. I may have made the mistake, but inevitably, we have to dine here sooner or later. I was very excited dining here for their tasting menu. Unfortunately, the food did not satisfied my curious palate. I can’t think of any dish that was worth noting. Instead, the last dish which was the smoked rice was so undercooked that I ate so little of it. Our server was so kind enough to replace it with another fish dish. The service was impeccable, however, all servers hurried along the dining room, almost in race which was stressful and distracting. I ended up not enjoying the experience. Been to more than a dozen 3 Michelin star restaurants and this is gotta be the most stressful I have even been in. Please tell your servers to take it slow, no need to rush and place each dish on everyone’s table. Let your guess enjoy the ambiance, etc.More

There is definitely a reason this is a three star Michelin restaurant. First, every member of the staff fantastic. They all obviously love their jobs at Le Cinq and make you feel right at home - from greeting you right through walking with you out...of the restaurant. Although extraordinarily high end, there is no pretentiousness - which is frankly missing at other Paris restaurants and is refreshing when you're spending that much money. The food is also amazing. Each time we have been we have chosen the prix fixe menu and have enjoyed every serving. Also an incredible wine list. I would never miss this restaurant on any trip to Paris!More
