My wife and I, along with friends went to Le Procope to celebrate our anniversary. I had noted this when making our online reservation but received no recognition of it from the restaurant...no big deal. Our meals were excellent and the waitstaff was very attentive to a point. After our entrees were finished the waitstaff seemed to disappear. It took... More

We invited dear friends to a special dinner in Paris prior to flying home to Toronto. We were all very disappointed in the quality of the food served and the service was best described as bizarre, very slow and we finally asked for our bill although we had ordered dessert and coffee. Worst experience in Paris for dinner.

We came here for our last night in Paris and it became immediately apparent as to why it was so popular with its depth of history in each corner. We waited for food but rather than being understaffed we took it as having a nice drawn out evening as opposed to eatin' and dashin'. We had the french onion soup,... More

We dropped on Le Procope for an early dinner before visiting the Louvre during its late Wednesday hours. A friend who knows Paris well recommended it. Terrific historic atmosphere inside and friendly, efficient service. Go upstairs and view the exquisite dining rooms and decorations.

My partner and I went to this restaurant whilst we were in Paris, after seeing it on a television program. It's definitely a place to get dressed up for. It's absolutely beautiful and is full of character. We loved how you could read the history of this venue on the back of the menu. We were very excited about the... More

We went as a large group with reservations (25+people). The food was good, but hard to comment on the menu since it was a prix fixe meal. The history as other writers have pointed out is fascinating. I would love to visit again in a smaller group.

This is among the oldest restaurants in Paris. It's classic French food. We showed up at 8pm with no reservation on a Friday night. The place was busy but the host was pleasant and invited us to have a glass a champagne at the bar and he'd have a table in 20 minutes or less. We enjoyed the bubbles and... More

Not even worth the history. Stay away, seriously. It took ages to get a table despite being told 5 mins wait. Then took about an hour for the food (and only away saying we don't want it anymore). Chicken was dry and overcooked (probably because it sat there for 30 mins before it got served). Do yourself a favour and... More

Le Procope founded in 1686 by the Sicilian Francesco Procopio Dei Coltelli, is considered to be one of the oldest cafes in Paris, as well as a legendary meeting place for artists and intellectuals. You'll be surprised as much by the decor of the three-hundred-year-old restaurant, marked by the historical events it has witnessed over the years, as by its culinary classics, such as the coq au vin or whiting and its creams and sorbets made by the House. A historic cafe to try for a full meal or even a cup of tea and a sweet pastry.
