We tried this restaurant 4 years ago and had a terrible experience. We thought we would give it another chance, but alas, same story. The waiter made us feel very unwanted with terrible service (maybe because we were Americans?). The Frenchman at the next table ordered the same food as we did; his steak was 3 times the size of...

We were in Paris for the weekend and were so excited to try Voltaire! Sadly, it was downhill from the start. They gave us a bad table near the door, in a room that was nearly all empty other than waiters rushing past us. Nevertheless, we were still happy to dine here and just be together - until the first... More

It's a memorable place to dine where Voltaire dined and to have the level of quality remain for so many years. It's a real experience and a wonderful staff to pamper you with their pleasure.

I have been wanting to go to Le Voltaire for a very long time, I went there for dinner with some friends that have gone there many times, the place is beautiful and cozy. Service was terrible, we waited so long for everything at the point that instead of asking for dessert we asked for the bill. You can see... More

26€ for three expressos and two bottles of water? Was a barriqued one? It cames from Alaska? The coffee was probably original tibetan. Thanks to Dalai Lama.

Great place to stop with friends to catch up while enjoying typical Parisian brasserie type food. Nicely decorated and warm reinforce its cosyness to discuss either family/friendship issues or work related issues. The staff is discrete and very nice. The food is just great and very well prepared. We shared some charcuterie, I enjoyed black pudding, while my wife had... More

Food is ok, nothing spectacular, nothing I would recommend being in Paris and having so many options. I ordered the beef for two and it was for three, it's good but if you are used to taste beef in the US or Japan the quality of the meat doesn't compare. The service is so So, some waiters are nice while... More

Revisited after many years and I love the decor the food and the service -- all impeccable and make me feel I am having the quintessential Parisian dining experience. But -- the steep prices and especially for drinks sort of killed the buzz... Not sure when I will return.

I enjoyed a dinner here with my daughter last month. The restaurant location is great, just across from the Louvre on the left bank, in one of my favorite neighborhoods. The restaurant itself is charming and intimate. The service is impeccable. I thought the food was good, but not particularly great or distinctive. I had a salad of with grapefruit... More

We also stopped in for an impromptu lunch after touring the Lourve all morning. We sat outside at a lovely table overlooking the Seine. My sister and I both ordered the quiche and it was simple and phenomenal. The custard was rich and they drizzled it with a thin bechamel. The quiche came with a big bowl of red leaf... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
