The restaurant is a cute french bistro that you would never think to be as delicious as it is. The food was classic French cuisine that we enjoyed immensely. I would definitely recommend you go here during your stay in paris and order the artichoke with goat cheese and the duck confit. The procuttio platter was absolutely delicious as well.

We were recommended this place by the concierge at Le Bristol Hotel (Great Concierge). It was fantastic for our last night in Paris. A great neighborhood brasserie, great food and great ambiance!

An awesome local French dinner spot. We loved our night here. We drank three bottles of the house wine and the staff was friendly with us the entire time. It really was a blast. Small restaurant that fills up quickly, so come early.

Sometimes when you revisit a place you have loved the memories are not supported by the experience. We have been eating here for about 10 years now and all our experiences have been really delightful. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Food is truly delicious. Specials of the day always interesting. Worth a visit

Outside and inside, a good-looking, inviting, unpretentious place, named after the monument right next to them. The fixed menu is enlivened with a starter and a main dish of the day. The fixed menu is not excessively long, but it may not harm to concentrate it a bit more on dishes they are really good at. The choice of wine... More

Every two years for the last 20 years a bunch of friends and I meet up in Paris and always come to La FM for lunch. It's all just so classically perfect almost in a traditional way: the staff ( exceedingly helpful), menu ( with some real classics and signature dishes) and wine list ( with staff who know their...

Off the beaten track and away from usual tourist hunts. This place provides typical French style bistro meals excellenty delivered by professional chefs and waiters. They are friendly and service oriented. You will find largely locals who frequent this place for lunch or dinner.
