This is one of my musts in Paris. The traditional French food here is at it's best. The Duck Confit and the Boeuf Bourgogne here is the to die for! Also Chez Dumonet has the VERY BEST Mille Feuille in the world.

The food here was terrific. And the service was outstanding. We had reservations for 7:30 and we arrived early since we weren't sure how long it would take to get there. It happened to be raining that evening and when they saw us waiting outside,...More

I'd dinner at Josephine Chez Dumonet for the first time about 3 years ago and was very impressed with its foie gras and bœuf bourguignon. I went there for the second time last night and ordered again foie gras and bœuf bourguignon. They looked exactly...More

Beef bourguignon is amazingly good. Must pick! However, the service is horrible, maybe because I am not local. Still, felt bad being treated rudely and unprofessionally. Be careful.

While super booked for dinners, it is a lot easier to get in For the same great food over a leisurely lunch where you can meet and talk to the chef owner and praise his world’s best boeuf bourguignon. Be sure to generously spoon the...More

Perhaps this place was once the spot to be but it now is tired, dirty & not worth the visit. Service was very poor. Too many bookings and not enough staff. Took us quiet a while to get our order placed and we waited too...More

Please order the Boeuf Bourguignon. It is so tasty and literally melts in your mouth. You will not leave a single morsel. Also make certain to order the Grand Marnier Soufflé. Definitely shareable, but you might just want your own. We let the manager choose...More

This place was recommended to me for its boeuf bourguignon. I arrived shortly before closing but the staff was accommodating. I was given pea soup and I ordered boeuf bourguignon aux tagliatelles and millefeuille Jean-Louis. The boeuf bourguignon was fine, if a bit underwhelming. The...More

Visited Chez Dumonet in January 2017, and again in September 2018. Reserved by phone about 4 days before. Absolutely nothing available for 2 days, on the 3rd and 4th there were tables at 9:30 (which is actually fine since few French eat before 8 or...More

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

I used a Visa, so I am not positive - but I doubt that they accept American Express. There is a Trip Advisor review from 2015 stating that they don't - and I doubt that has changed.
