Having dined at Guy Savoy in Las Vegas (and having enjoying it immensely), we knew we had to try to the Paris original, particularly since it was just walking distance from our hotel. As much as we enjoyed the Las Vegas location, we were blown away by the Paris one. Much more intimate than the Las Vegas Guy Savoy, Restaurant Guy Savoy is small, storefront place in a most residential neighborhood, filled with little jewel boxes of rooms. Our dining room was near the back of the restaurant, and from the front door to our table, every employee stopped what they were doing to welcome us, and did likewise as we were leaving, including Mr. Savoy himself, who came to our table just after we were seated to welcome us. The staff is impeccable. Service flawless. What could have been intimidating, was anything but. Without comment, question or hesitation, every staff member was as easily conversant in English as in French, making the night a pleasure for both my husband and myself. And the food. What can be said? It was perfect. As delicious as they were beautiful, each dish was an exploration of flavors and textures and aromas designed to delight. I could list each of the specific dishes we had, but that would likely be pointless given the changing nature of the menu. Suffice to say, I would go back in a heartbeat, it was so good.
As to some of the negative reviews, I think you need to understand the nature of this restaurant. It is not a place one just drops into for a quick lunch. This is evening to be savored and enjoyed, course after course, hour after hour. Treat the experience with the respect it deserves, and you will be rewarded. Our experience was everything you should expect for a restaurant of this caliber, and if your expectations are set accordingly, you will be in for an amazing experience.
