“Dinner after the ballet”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We'd booked a table (for 5) for dinner after the ballet at the Opera just over the road so we didn't arrive until after 10.30pm. We were offered a table upstairs with a good view across to the Opera House. Although the restaurant was still busy service was prompt and friendly so our orders for food and wine were soon taken. Although not all of us were French speakers we were making the effort to use our limited French - our waiter responded by using his rather better English - it's worth making the effort! The menu offers a good selection although it is of fairly standard fare i.e. the usual suspects. Prices reflected the central location. Each of us had ordered different items and none of us was diappointed either with quality or quantity. Notwithstanding the late hour we were under no pressure to leave; often a problem with a late meal. Altogether a very enjoyable meal and we would go back - so we did. A few days later having completed the open bus tour we called in to L'Entracte for a lunchtime snack. Seated at a pavement table again we were dealt with promptly by the waiter and quickly served our sandwich and beer. This a great spot for people watching either those on the street or the many sitting on the Opera House steps. Again, prices reflected this central location but that's what you expect and they were not out of step compared to similar Paris locations.

“Good food, rude service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

While i am used to the average service in paris, ifound the waiters inthis brasserie extremely rude. It took forever for the waiter to give me a seat, he refused to clean the table that i liked on the terrasse so i had to sit inside, he then complained when i asked him for the menu twice when he was late.. Basically i hd a horrible service experience. However the food was very good. I had a chicken salad which was fresh and tasty. I have also tasted their salmon and its good.

“Romantic atmosphere & stunning view”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We picked this restaurant in a hurry because it was pouring with rain. It was our final meal in Paris and we were not disappointed. We were seated upstairs back from the windows but still had an amazing view. We had two small suitcases with us as we were en route to the airport, but this was not a problem.

The waitress was very friendly and service was prompt but also well timed. We had two large glasses of wine, entree of frog's legs and two main courses + gratuaties for €60 which was very reasonably priced considering the quality of both the food and the service.

I loved everything about Paris, but our meal here was definitely a highlight and a lovely end to our trip.
