This restaurant was recommended to us by a woman at the Dali museum, it was just down the street from our hotel and we were able to get a reservation that day. The food was wonderful, although after seeing the steak tartare prepared I was disappointed that I hadn't order it. I had the beef bourguignon, which was very good... More

Had a wonderful last night blowout French dinner here that did not disappoint! Terrine of mushrooms and pea soup was delicious and of course they are justifiably famous for the beef bourguignon. We ate late but the place was packed, but the stuff was busy and efficient. The Grand Marnier souffle was amazing!!

We were fortunate to get a last minute dinner reservation on our last night in Paris. My 12 year old was impressed by the duck confit. Food was amazing, especially the mushroom filled with foie gras ( I can't remember the name ). Waiters were attentive. Price is reasonable for the quality of food. Menu is in French but waiters...

When there's a Ferrari parked outside, you know it must be a good place! They squeezed us in even though we didn't have a reservation. Would definitely recommend the haddock and boeuf bourguignon. Lovely little place with a great wine selection for any price point.

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

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
