Description: It opened in January this year at the location of the former Kiwi Corner restaurant. It has been rated on thefork.com website at 8.2/10. We've eaten there and found the restaurant to feature classic French cooking, extremely well prepared in a small congenial restaurant across from the Luxembourg Gardens. We sampled the dishes and found all of them very good to excellent. Nice choice of reasonably priced wines too. I particularly liked the Grand Marnier Souffle. The best part is the very reasonable prices which are shown on the thefork.com website.

My wife and I finally found French food we loved! La Cuisine de Philippe is a small restaurant located across from the French Senate away from the tourists and crowds. Make a reservation and get directions before. we almost walked past it.

Our appetizers, cheese soufflé and lobster soufflés were cooked perfectly. We got the lamb and fish as our mains. Both delicious. For dessert we got the crème brule and of course a dessert soufflé. Once again the soufflé was cooked perfectly.

Philippe the chef came out near the end of the meal and chatted with us for a few minutes. A nice ending to a great meal.
Meal was reasonably price including a main. All food can be purchased a la carte or a 3 course meal including an appetizer, main and dessert.

This is a small, appealing and excellent restaurant with a very nice staff. Duck and seabass dinner were tasty and very well presented and of course the suffles were fantastic

As has been stated this place is small get a reservation. We have had a few good meals in Paris but this experience felt most authentic. I suspect due to positive reviews the tourists are taking over but the owner and his wife are warm and welcoming.

They made special care to review a food allergy which affects one of our party. So much so, that they mentioned which items on other plates to avoid if we shared.

The soufflés are very good. The best part was watching all the perfect soufflés come out of the kitchen to other diners. They crank out high quality food promptly.

The three must try items are the sea bass ( what is in that sauce. Crack or something very yummy). The pistachio chocolate soufflés and finally the Carmel almond soufflé.

We had a great time and enjoyed excellent service and food.

Try the house wines they are reasonable and drinkable.

Recently had dinner at La Cuisine de Phillippe. Monsieur Phillippe greated us as we entered this intimate, delightful restaurant. I had duck for my main course with chocolate soufflé for dessert. This is the real Paris. Warm, friendly, and talented owner and chef. Service was friendly and efficient. Love this place. Reservations highly advised.
