This restaurant has ages, but every time we go to Paris, we go to have a wonderful souffle. You can have salted or sweet, they have another kind of dishes, that to tell the thruth i have not tried, but i am sure they are wonderfull.

This restaurant was recommended by a tour guide, who was able to reserve a table for us with six hours notice. It is a very popular place, as witnessed by the number of people being turned away while we sat smugly at our front row table near the door. The waiters were extremely attentive, providing us with excellent service. The... More

August marks 35 years to the month since I was first introduced to Le Soufflé. 36 rue 36 Rue du Mont Thabor, 75001, close to Concorde behind rue de Rivoli. My love affair remains. For me, it represents all that is civilised, unchanging and delicious in Parisian restaurants. The restaurant’s 28€ lunch menu of a green salad, your choice from... More

Glad that I checked the website and saw that they were closed for three weeks in Augusr. Emailed right away and got a reservation for their last night open in July. Cute little restaurant, so French. The staff was very attentive and service excellent. We had the chicken with mushroom soufflé which was rich and creamy, and excellent. We had... More

We had a party of 2 couples eat dinner at Le Souffle in July 2016 and the whole experience couldn't have been better! The food was exquisite, the service prompt and the wait staff courteous and informative. We enjoyed the entire meal - from appetizer to dessert. Everything was perfect. I wish we could have returned for another meal but... More

We picked this place based on reviews on trip advisor as well as it was close to our hotel... Furthermore as my wife is a vegetarian we figured the soufflé concept could provide a tasty solution for both of us. It was disappointing The soufflés are nicely done but tasteless... It is kind of stupid as if they simply add... More

A full menu of souffles, this restaurant is busy, but can schedule walk-ins for a later reservation. Salmon souffle was divine, and the Grand Marnier souffle was perfection.

The lunch special (12:00-14:00) is the best value in Paris! It includes a salad, main course, dessert and a beverage for 28 EUR. We adored the Boeuf Bourginon Souffle and the White and Green Asparagus Souffle. We are a family of 5 and found that sharing 3 lunch specials was more than enough. For dessert we were thrilled with the... More

Could the host and waiter looked down on us any more than he did? My wife wanted to visit an authentic French restaurant away from tourists. We wandered onto Le Soufflé. Soon after walking in, the host very snobily took us to a table. I tried to ease my wife's concerns about going elsewhere knowing how much she wanted to... More

Hidden jewel in the 1st Arrondissement. Small, intimate restaurant with made to order souffles. Charmingly decorated and delicious food.
