This restaurant was recommended in Rick Steves Paris 2016. Prices are high (roughly 25 Euros for a single small, non-filling souffle), but we thought we would splurge, as it was our last night in Paris. They sat us outside on a cold night because the...More

Very poor. Terrible service because we didn’t speak French. Ordered 2 mushroom soufflés. Both came way undercooked, wet inside. Sent it back. Still wet inside. Chef came out, took it back, apologizing. No excuse. Paid 63 euros for 2 soufflés. Not worth it.

Saturday as the second time in six months I visited this restaurant. Food is still good but completely spoiled by very rude, incompetent and slow service.

The souffles are tasteless. An accompanying salad for 6.50Eu is a few leaves in a bowl. And if you have their 'house' foie gras for 18.50Eu, you get two slices on a bed of aspic and toast (though we asked 4 times before we got...More

The souffles here are excellent. I would certainly return and probably order the very same thing but I will say that service was very slow.

Although le Recamier is best known for its soufflés, we ventured out and tried a couple of the daily selections. We began with a plate of very fresh oysters. The two main courses were the cabillaud with a beurre blanc and the Agneau with a...More

Worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life, from not only the staff but the owner too! They were transparently rude to Americans and proud of it. While brought the locals inside and gave them toasted bread and butter we were placed alone...More

I know this place for so many year. Very Parisian restaurant. The food is original for most of the foreigner especially in Asia, but you must go at least once. Play the game and order all their souflle, you will love it. Service is fine.

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
