“Deeeelicious!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

English friends who live in Paris recommended this place to us and we were SO happy that we got to eat here!!!! For a bistro, the level of service and quality of food was out of this world.

The waitress took the time to explain everything to us in English. We had the La Picana - the Brazilian style beef for two cooked with the fat still on (the fat comes out crispy and oh so delicious). Remember that it is France, where even medium rare is blue, so if you are a medium rare fiend make sure you ask for medium to well done.

The wine list was extensive and could be quite overwhelming if you don't know French wines very well. We asked the waitress for her recommendation and are very glad we did because she chose the perfect wine for us.

If you want a view of the Eiffel Tower, ask when you make the reservation. If you don't end up with a table with a view, just go for a walk before or after dinner and stand on the bridge (less than 100m away) for a perfectly uninterrupted view :) you will also get to see the Statue of Liberty from the bridge.

If you are trying to decide whether to go to L'Ogre or somewhere else, let me make your mind up for you: GO TO L'OGRE! :)

“Best bistro ever in Paris”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is the best place I've tried in Paris. The service is perfect and the quality of the food is just incredible.

Just have a look at the wine list to notice that this place is a connoiseur choice!

The best : EIFFEL TOWER view if you book your tabel early enough.

I recomend their Cote de Boeuf that is officialy for two but will be enough for 3 or 4!

“Great meat - A place for the carnivorous”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This place overlooking the river Seine with a nice view on the Eiffel tower is dedicated to the meat lovers. Beef lovers especially. The wine list is extremely selective with mainly Red from the Rhone Valley and the South West of France - Strong wines in the 13.5% plus range. Service is very friendly - Meat is great but a little pricey. Not for the light appetites in search of Grean beans, lettuce and Mineral Water. Be warned and if you like great beef pick up the phone and book

“Great place”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I was there with a friend of mine, and it was very good experience. All customers were local, but staff is very friendly and command enough English to communicate with aliens. I have to admit that we tasted just one course from their menu – it was 1kg (2.2 lb) steak, big enough for two hungry males. It is their specialty and was just perfect; other dishes also look very good. Price is reasonable, atmosphere is pleasant. The only cavity – we came again on Friday evening and the place was fully sold out, but this is definitely not their fault, so be warned and book table in advance on weekends.

“Great view and fun staff”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

The restaurant had a great view of the Eiffel tower during dinner. The waitstaff was friendly and accommodating as we looked at ordering our food. The staff spoke some English which was enough to get us through the night. The food was typical French with a modern twist.

As we had a very diverse group, this served us well. You are also able to see a replica of the Statue of Liberty looked on the Seine river right next to the resturant.

Was a charming evening out and we were able to walk over to the Eiffel Tower after dinner.
