Awesome meal. Do yourself a favor and just order the Chef's meal. He will not disappoint. 7 great courses of small dishes made to perfection. The chef is an intense person. lol. We have dined at 30 plus Michelin restaurants and the food here is deserving of a star. I will recommend L'aime Jean to anyone who is going to... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch. The set menu is chosen by the Chef on the day, with generous portions of great quality. It really was one of the best meals we had in Paris on this trip!

We went to L'Ami Jean on the advice of a friend. We were advised to go for lunch and to get the set menu. Don't look at what it says, just go for it. We made the blind choice and what followed shortly after was a parade of dream like dishes that blew our minds. The mastermind behind L'Ami Jean... More

My Nephew recommended that we try this place out so we did and it did not disappoint. Hubby had the veal cheeks and I had the beef shoulder they were both delish.. But the best surprise was the Rice Pudding Desert, if you go you need to save room to taste this dish it was heaven.

Old restaurant but the food was great, you have to make a reservation. Don't let them rush you. The wine list is good!

The staff was French, efficient, but kind and funny, not brusque which is often tough for Americans to handle. The food was excellent. great quality, well seasoned, good portion sizing. Rice pudding all and more than we expected! (you will... More

Went here for lunch after a visit to the Eiffel tower, easy walk. Couldn't get a reservation for dinner because they were fully booked. The waiter was a comedian which made lunch a good deal of fun. It was packed to the rafters with the lunch crowd, obviously a very popular place with tourists and some locals as well. The... More

Tried to get a reservation for dinner, impossible. So we walked over and stopped by at lunch time and got seated at noon. They have a fixed price menu along with a la carte. We went with the fixed price and weren't disappointed even though we had no idea what we would get. Food outstanding, my granddaughter's favorite place to... More

If you are looking for an authentic shabby chic Parisienne food experience, look elsewhere. The food was regional but mediocre, my son ordered the duck, it came as a lump of pink meat, no presentation, the same jus had graced the quail entree which we enjoyed. A very very small bowl of mash for 3, not a haricot vert in... More
