Steak was cooked perfect medium; pepper sauce was creamy and savory. Was so tasty that we though about coming back again for it. The fish was ok, not so fresh. Mozzarella salad was very fresh; yummy! Local red wine was nice but not special.

We have been here several times on several different trips to Paris. Today we made our lunch journey there. Arrived at 11:30 to make a reservation for 1pm. They speak petite English to match my petite French. Very friendly as usual. Even showed us what table we would sit at. Walked around doing errands until 1. We had the prix... More

We didn't have a reservation so we were seated outside. The terrine was one of the best things I ate on my trip! So rich and delicious. I ordered lamb chops and was served sweatbreads. My husband ordered a very delicious steak. The server did not appear to be trained very well, and once we convinced the server that I... More

The menu and the food was very poor. Service was poor by disinterested staff, wine menu was outrageously expensive, in all I would never eat at this restaurant again. The four of us could not get out fast enough from it.

Classic french bistro food cooked to perfection, a brilliant table booked well in advance, great wine and a bright , intelligent waitress who got it right all made for a great meal. That doesn't quite sum it up though, this place has the 'Je ne sais quoi' that only comes with somewhere above and beyond. Will return next time in... More

We were hoping for a real Parisian experience at a great well-known French bistro. Nearly empty at 8PM - many other Paris bistros seemed lively at that time with people having drinks, etc. This was the only restaurant we visited where the whole place was filled with Americans. I guess we read the same blogs. Unfortunately, no one mentioned that... More

We went to this because one of our foursome really wanted to go due to the spectacular reputation. When we arrived our 9pm reservation was not ready. After being seated we were given a wine list that didn't include the wines of the day which were posted behind us on the wall. We asked for a wine recommendation which was... More
