We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at this restaurant walking distance from Hotel Du Cardan. The owner and his wife were very friendly and shared their experiences in France with us. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was very intimate as it is a small place. We felt like we were dining in our own private restaurant! Mariette was very sweet and funny and served us with complimentary shots. We had a great time and highly recommend!

We went here for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere is calm and enjoyable. Small and intimate restaurant. The service is splendid, with a topping when the chef made us a private visit. He presented the food we had eaten, and also the history of the restaurant. This made the experience more personal.

Marcella and Alfredo are simply the best. They both speak French, Spanish and English and are more than happy to speak whichever language you are most comfortable with. Alfredo creates the culinary deliciousness, while Marcella is tending to your needs.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Restaurant Mariette several weeks ago when we were in Paris. We went prepared with restaurant selections for each of the three nights we would be in Paris. We chose to dine at Mariette on the first night since it was close to our hotel and would cause us to walk right past the Eiffel Tower. However, Marcella and Alfredo's hospitality was so overwhelming that we chose to dine at Mariette all three nights (we tried different menu items each night, so it's not like we had the same meal twice). The menu is small, but wonderful. Between the two of us and the three nights we dined, I think we tried almost every item on the menu and there is not a single one that I didn't like. Each menu item we ordered was very flavorful and well presented. After the cooking is complete, Alfredo emerges from the kitchen to speak with guests and get feedback on his creations.

We both really enjoyed having a true French meal - where you take your time and dine slowly. It was very nice to spend a couple hours relaxing and eating after a day of sightseeing. Do not mistake the European way of dining slowly for slow service; the service was wonderful and it was so nice not to be rushed through a meal. The last night was particularly memorable and one of my favorite restaurant experiences to date – I can’t fully explain it, but we had a very nice meal and then enjoyed wine and conversation with people in the restaurant from around the world and before we knew it, we had been there for five hours - time flies when you're having fun! We are looking forward to a return trip to Paris, so we can dine with Marcella and Alfredo again!

Had a 3 course set meal with my wife, high in quality throughout. The room itself needs a makeover but the food could not be faulted. All courses excellent and the service was friendly and attentive.

Nice place and when we first walked in and after 5 minutes we thought reviews were wrong. The service was slow and basic to start but boy once the food came and meal was flowing the service improved and food covered any issues.
I had this amazing chicken in a pastry dish that was out of this world for my main course.
Near a very happening area we hadn't discovered in our previous trips down there. It's off a side street and a nice break from those junk tourist cafe's.
