The ambience was amazing. Service was impeccable. One should must experience.
Super duper expensive. All the dishes starts from 80 euros.
But I was not very happy with the food. I have experienced many fine dining restaurants. The food here was not upto the mark and prices are extremely high.
Overall I loved the experience

Thank roohz

These people are laughing at you. If you really want to pay nearly $100 for an egg (admittedly a very fancy egg), or $250 for a fatty scrap of lamb for two people, by all means eat here. Otherwise, stay away, because this place is not meant for anyone who has to think about value for money. We were also plagued by mosquitos, which at this price is frankly unacceptable. The service is very good though - friendly, helpful, and language-tolerant.

I booked this for mine and my husbands wedding anniversary during our recent trip to Paris, not really knowing what to expect. The restaurant is located in the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel near the Louis Vuitton store on the Champs Elysees. They currently have an expo of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles stay there so stop in to see the pictures if you're a fan. My husband is a huge fan so just that fact was worth the visit.

Your meal will begin with selecting between a glass of white or pink champagne, I now think all meals should begin that way :) then you will be enticed and delighted with course after delicious course ending with a selection off the dessert cart AFTER you've enjoyed your dessert. Le Cinq really proves that there is art in the preparation and presentation of food. It was also great watching the waiters in the restaurant make sure everything happened flawlessly to ensure a fabulous dining experience. I recommend that you do not eat during the day of your dinner. We will definitely be reserving a table here whenever our travels take us to Paris.

From beginning to end there is none better in the world. You're greeted with charm and class. Appetizers take your breath away then te main course does you in. We had the lamb and it changed our life. Dessert can't even be explained! Bring your checkbook because is very expensive. But you can't put a price on something like this. Once in a lifetime!

I just had a fantastic solo dinner at Le Cinq with the full Epicurean menu paired with their perfect selection of wine (~500 euros so think about it as a high end gift and not as a dinner only).

Arrived earlier and started with a drink at the bar of the Four Seasons, the barman made a spicy cucumber vodka drink, worthy. The ambiance at Le Cinq is elegant and classy, not Versaille-like ostentatious. The captain Pierre is attentive to all details and some small gestures count such as bringing me the book written about the restaurant (since I was alone, to pass time in between the total of 8 servings) or giving me an english version of the menu to take home.

Food was excellent although some dishes are clearly more interesting and richer such as the mushroom soup and the shrimp; the lamb is the weak spot as it is too small and fatty so you basically have two bites.

The wine pairing was a case of growing white wine power and elegance (more on Vivino) and make everything more interesting to the experience.

I planned to spend 1.5 hours at dinner, on time to catch my plane, but ended up unfortunately having to rush things at the end and even so spend more than two hours in one of my best enogaatronomical experiences!
