Stunning and well worth the reviews. Head for this place for the brilliant bone marrow starter, soft marrow off set by the sharpness of the raw leek and shallot. The pork and cabbage was divine. Huge chops, perfectly cut and sourced from a specialist breeder...near Paris. And this wine. Omg. This wine, brilliant and different. This place deserves its place as a culinary destination.More

Overall we had a great experience. It was easy to make a reservation over the phone one week before. Service was great all night and not bothered by my crappy French. We had an outstanding steak frites and a very good steak tartare, portions size...were more than adequate. We had the Paris Brest for desert and it was good but not in the same level as the mains. Wine list looked like it was a treasury for French wine enthusiasts, but had very few known names to me, but the staff suggestion was interesting and a good match for the food. Good value for the experience, would definitely come back.More

Bistrot Paul Bert had the classic bistro experience we were looking for during our foodie adventure in Paris. We walked in without a reservation just after they opened on Wednesday- we were seated right away however be mindful that this was off season in March...and a crowd started to appear as we were leaving the restaurant. The highlight for me was the Grand Marnier Souffle and a dessert that I cannot forget. Absolutely perfect in every way. The duck was delicious and the portions are just right.More

No faults at all with the first class piece of fillet steak, sizeable, excellent pepper/cream sauce too.Home made chips - for a change, not the awful mass produced pre-cut potatoes which never taste of anything much.Unfortunately, we got a plate with rather too many of...the burnt offerings, when I saw the nicely piled up plates of fresh chips served to other tables.Mostly French folk dining at lunchtime it seemed.38 euros for the steak and chips (no other veg/salad) advertised as a 'special'. Perhaps we missed out on what our guidebook had told us was a superb value lunch deal which included steak - we were there on a Saturday, so possibly that was the reason. Someone next to us had the Foie Gras, a real big slab of the stuff but at 20 euros for that starter, a bit steep. Never convinced of the quality served in restaurants either - ie whether top notch or (as I suspect) fairly bland. Had to try the Grand Marnier Souffle.A small amount of nice GM cream at the base but the rest was fairly tasteless.Disappointing but none of the rest of the desserts appealed (the usual French suspects - Tarte Tatin (rarely good), Creme Brulee, Chocolate Mousse(bet that's not made in house either.) Anyway, nice atmosphere inside, nice service, nice to be surrounded by French speaking folks.Noticed two Americans had the Cote de Boeuf (80 euros for 2) which was absolutely enormous and looked good, if far too much for 2 people.Good value for 3 or 4! Glad to have tried it but don't think we'll be back.More

We had been advised to book a table and the place was full from 8 pm. There were few French among the clientele in the room in which we were seated, and I'd guess that Americans were in the majority. The restaurant does traditional French...cuisine well enough, but neither B's pollock nor my steak knocked my socks off. A number of wines were available by the glass, but the list and description of those was given somewhat grudgingly - to us, to the French man in the corner. I found the woman taking orders and serving barely civil, though she had friendly interactions with another table. It is rather expensive for what it was, where it is, especially in conjunction with unpleasant service. Disappointing.More

We had the 3-course set menu of the day and, on the whole, it did not disappoint. Service was nice and the atmosphere of the place is really vibrant. It really feels like Paris, despite the tourists. A place to return if I'm in the...region.More

It's the famous Bistrot Paul Bert...my wife and are gobbling steak au poivre, grilled fish, housemade pate, salad greens and a magnificent Grand Marnier soufflé...everything is washed down with glasses of champagne and a bottle of 1st cru Beaune...we are happy as can be. You...must have a reservation, or you will be thrown to the curb like the barbarian you are...let them know you are coming, the staff are switched-on and efficient, the food is great, and the vibe is totally bistro-like: lively and bustling yet organized and soothing. Enjoy!More

The service is great and the food serviceable but it really isn't a lot more than that. There's a kind of online buzz around the place that fills it up with non-Parisians (like me), but there's much better food to be had in Paris. Even...in bistros.More

I don’t remember seeing a kids menu But if order the steak for 2 and your child eats steak it’s definitely enough.
