Amazing! The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding. This was the most expensive meal I've ever paid for two people, but I'd go back again any day! Simply amazing!

I usually don't bother, but I'm compelled. Easily one of the finest dining experiences I've had, and I would like to think I've had many. The service is so finely balanced it's almost as if you were waiting for the staff to make the slightest mistake - except they pull it off in a bravo performance. I think some diners find service in Paris to be a bit stiff or unfriendly at times, at Le Cinq, no such worries, everything is carried out naturally and with ease.

The room, table, and dishes are presented beautifully, but tastefully, without distracting from the main event - the food - which is plenty creative, but not meaninglessly adventurous. I don't think you can go wrong by ordering anything, but I recommend at least giving some thought on one of the more expensive 'specialty' dishes - I feel there is often a reason for such high-priced fare to have survived on the menu, and personally, I was well rewarded.

Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to really interact with the master sommelier, who was friendly and eager to help. I felt sad that we couldn't linger on the pages of the 'book' that was the wine list, but I did notice that the prices seemed surprisingly fair for a restaurant of this class. All in all, an impeccable experience for us, we will come back for dinner for sure. (Yes, we were there for lunch, and we only had 2 hours - which we told the staff as we were shown our table. I signed the check 2 hours and 1 minute afterwards - thanks again to the staff for timing everything perfectly!)

What an elegant place! Really gorgeous and a beautiful, romantic atmosphere, ideal for couples. Les hors-d' oeuvres where all worth an attentive search for taste.

If you are in Paris, I really recommend it...

We were looking for a nice restaurant in Paris where we could enjoy excellent food at a nice place. We decided for Le Cinq based on trip advisor's reviews. This restaurant is inside the Four Seasons Hotel and it is luxurious! Don't forget to wear a jacket!
I had foie gras as a starter while my wife had 3 tasting starters based on black truffles. Both starters were good, not exceptional. We both ordered lamb as a main course and it was cooked to perfection but missing some flavor. As a desert I had pistachio soufflé and my wife an apple pie. The soufflé itself was very good although the ice cream aside had a sour taste. We had wine by the glass, one champagne to start and a pinot noir with the main course, both very good. The service was impeccable. The only problem is the price. You need to be prepared to spend Euro300/person!!!!!! I won't come back, but if you wish to visit, enjoy it!
