Loved our meal here. It was our 20th wedding anniversary, our last dinner in Paris, and the food could not have been more perfect. Served up the classics beautifully. Impeccable service without being too formal or stuffy. Especially sweet was the way the staff treated each other. We don't speak a ton of French, but was clear a young rookie... More

My husband and I enjoyed our final meal in Paris at this restaurant. We started with the smoked haddock which was very good. We split the beef bourguignon and it did not disappoint! It was plenty of food for 2, probably 3 people. We were unable to finish all of the beef. We ordered a grand marnier souffle to share... More

I went to Chez Dumonet (Josesphine) with high expectations. I read the reviews, and I love classic French comfort food. I went for lunch and there were two other solo Americans in the whole place, but I knew I wanted beouf bourginon, and I wasn't leaving without it. If you can't read French, look at the menu online before you... More

Always consistent in our expectation with amazingly tender and not salty harengs for appetizer, the pigeon was tender and excellent as my wife was pleased with her selection as well with duck as her main course. The country bread is great, the pate served as amuse gueule was very good. It was smart to follow the maitre d' wine suggestion... More

I come from the customer service industry so I tend to have high expectations. JCD did not disappoint!! They bring you a glass of complimentary white wine to start and a chicken spread. Lots of delicious breads. The they brought out more complimentary treats with my husbands cafe au lait. We were served by 3 people. And the host spent... More

Must go in Paris for classic French cooking. We had the best and largest smoke salmon platter to begin. My wife had pigeon which I never thought she would order, let alone enjoy, which she did thoroughly. I had amazing duck. The restaurant is very unassuming but well known so you'll likely need a reservation.

Yes, the food is good-- not great, but good. Nothing to are over and most particularly not at that price. Better meals can be had elsewhere in Paris. It is indeed classic french, in a lovely setting. The food is very old style, and not much effort is made to offer vegetables as a side-- just noodles or potatoes; and... More

When in Paris we like our food French and the decor classic French / Parisian. We were not disappointed by Josephine Chez Dumont, which was recommended by the hotel. We had a lovely seat in the front by the bar. The crowd was primarily out-of-towners, but there was a local man eating at the table next to us. We both... More

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
