We found this restaurant after having meals which were typically French and needed a change. This was right near our apartment which we had rented. Service was good ( hard to find good service in Paris!)' The meal was well priced and very good. We enjoyed it s much we returned the following night! There is a more intimate restaurant upstairs for the couple looking for romance! We ate downstairs watching the world go by.

We ate at a lot of brasserie's in Paris, but this one stood out! The service was wonderful, the food delicious, and the portions large. My son ordered the hamburger which was large and good. We ordered the chicken with a sauce that was incredible. I wish I had gotten the recipe. The French Onion soup was in a large crock and delicious.

We ate a very late lunch here in May. After walking in the rain & tired, we came across this delightful brasserie on the way back to our hotel. Chicken club sandwiches, fries, & mojitos hit the spot. Service was great---friendly waiters. The nice atmosphere(we ate on the bar floor level) was coffeehouse/Bohemian. We'll return on our next trip in December.

This restaurant isn't far from our hotel. We gave it a go and it was out worst meal in Paris. We had the roast chicken and steak. Both were bad. Chicken was dry. Steak was overcooked. Will not go back again!

The Trait d'Union is a decent enough restaurant.

We dined upstairs. The space is intimate and cosy with comfortable crushed velvet sofas and dimmed lights.

We had goat cheese and parma ham salads. We agreed it was a good idea that the vinaigrette came on the side. The parma ham was lovely but its a pity the goat cheese was over cooked and therefore quite dry and hard to swallow.

The service was slow: we waited 45mins for our drinks (a Coke and a Perrier ) and another 20mins for our salads. I'm not sure it takes over an hour to make a simple salad, especially considering there were hardly any other customers in the dining area.

Overall the food was nice and cheap ( salad was €14 ) but the staff wasn't attentive enough. While we weren't in a hurry; waiting 45mins for bottled drinks that required no mixing or pouring was excessive.
