“Exceed Expectation”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We spend 2 hours for lunch at this 2 star michelin restaurant and we are speehless from their food to their services. Amazing, amazing. Although it is a bit pricey, it is a MUST to go if you travel in Paris and you won't be disappointed.

“Perfect lunch”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

I do not want to mention about food and courses because they are excellent people like us are fond of seafood were satisfied everyone will leave cinq happy. It is really expensive but worths. It is not a place you go everyday. Wine was a good choice suggested by our waiter. Everyone who served our table was very polite smiling (not fake) they try to explain how it was prepared what ingredients inside. Because their chef is an artist not only a cook. I thank you all for exceptional lunch which we would prefer dinner but not available one month prior. The only critic I will make is about reservation correspondence was in french. Pls use also english for foreign customers.....

“Splendid lunch - service doesn't get any better than this”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

As you enter the restaurant you are greeted warmly and instantly feel welcom and at ease. The service here is so good that it's close to an artform. The restaurant serves french cooking at its best. Had the set menu; the main course was grilled duck foi gras; a favourite and this was perhaps the best I ever had. The sommelier was very helpful and my request for a bottle of light and refreshing burgundy was answered with Morey Duband 08 which was a light, fragrant wine with great finesse - perfect company for the food and a great lunch wine. Rounded of with the cheese trolley, selection of cheeses fabulous, and very generous and complete cheese plate was served, in fact they thought I should try a wide selection and provided two platters.
This is a restaurant of top quality and the prices are high, though not off the charts for food and wine. The coffee seems a tad expensive at 15euros. So enjoy coffe somewhere else perhaps; but apart from that an unforgettable and particularly pleasant meal.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were a party of 4 that came for lunch. We had a wonderful experience at Le Cinq, the food and the service was amazing. We ordered a 3 course tasting menu that became 6-7 courses in the end. Next time, we will order the big menu!

I look forward to come again in the future.

Thank you for the wonderful service to our baby boy,
bringing a baby to a 2 star Michelin restaurant, I have to admit I had my doubts.


We had an excellent afternoon, thank you very much.

Best regards.

“Haughty parisian service”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Second time I have eaten here, and this occasion was disappointing from the view of the service.
Food as always was well executed, good portions and balanced. For those who want the full Parisian experience the current Maitre d' has it down pat. Looked down his nose at every second diner. In particular an Arabic gentleman next to us was treated to repeated rolling of the eyes, and pretending not to understand his very clear English.
When you are paying 800 euros for a meal, I expect better service. Went to several competitors including the outstanding Taillevent and Pierre Gagnaire and can say that in this price range it is possible to get friendly respectfull service in Paris.
The email survey they sent did not appear to work properly, so dont know if they didnt get my concerns or couldnt be bothered getting back to me.
I will not be going back, too many better alternatives.
