Went here with 3 friends for dinner. Famous for its food and scene in "Somethings got to give". Service and food were great until I saw mice running across the floor. The server and maitre D were unaffected. Our server apologized and another table of locals thought it was funny. Another table of guests got up to leave upon seeing... More

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in Paris. That's where we had our honeymoon. We wanted to splurge on a special dinner and we picked this restaurant. I found out about this place when watching the movie "Something's Gotta Give" with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. I fell in love with the ambiance of the place and always said that... More

Most erything was amazing - service was EXCELLENT, atmosphere and presentation of food was beautiful, onion soup - the best! The server recommended the seafood platter, we cold barely eat, as it all was so "fishy". Even still, the experience itself was amazing. Highly recommended, just not the seafood platter ;)

If you are vegetarian you have one choice on the menu: namely 'vegetarian dish: 15 euros'. The website shows pasta with grilled vegetables, which looked passable. On arriving I asked what the dish was and was told it was "vegetables". I enquired further and understood it was a "pile of vegetables". I asked if I could have something a little... More

This restaurant was on my list to visit during my short visit to Paris. I didn't make a reservation as I didn't want to commit to a set schedule. My husband and I walked by at about 3:00 pm just to take a picture and saw the restaurant wasn't busy. We went in and were seated in the "seat" from... More

By American standards a great restaurant. By French, average. Food was good, service okay. Most of the guests were tourists (English speaking). Escargot was average, fish dish was not impressive in presentation or seasoning. They are open for Dinner all afternoon and earlier, so for people (tourists) who like to book an earlier dinner table this place is a great... More

The tables - at least where we started out where actually quite awkward. The bench seating an awkward level to the table. The greeting was fine, and from there I felt quite rushed. This was actually my husbands birthday (though we did not divulge he doesn't like a big deal)and we wanted a relaxed enjoyable last night in Paris, thus... More

One colleague had been here before and had steak frites which were pleasant. He went off piste and ordered veal this time which didn't match the steak, apparently though the staff did recommend the steak. Tunisian waitress was friendly and helpful - we would go back for the pleasure of hearing her recommendations. Friends had the French onion soup which... More

I was so excited to eat here. I had heard the roast chicken was amazing. Everything the waiter suggested was the most expensive thing on the menu. We had to wait 45 minutes for our French onion soup. The maitre D apologized twice and then had to reprimand our waiter to get it. We observed several people receive it before... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
