Description: La Table du Lancaster propose un nouveau voyage sensoriel à travers la cuisine de Julien Roucheteau, chef de cuisine. Le chef Julien Roucheteau et Aurélie Armand, responsable de salle, travaillent de concert afin d’élever toujours plus le niveau du restaurant étoilé de l’hôtel Lancaster. Table raffinée réputée pour la créativité de sa carte,l’élégance de son cadre et la qualité de son service. Après quatre ans de collaboration, Michel Troisgros laissait à son chef exécutif une liberté totale dans la création des cartes de la Table du Lancaster. C’est donc dans la logique de cette continuité qu’en novembre 2012, Julien Roucheteau reprend avec talent les commandes de la table étoilée. Grâce à une technicité gastronomique, le chef sublime les produits traditionnels et offre une ouverture sur le monde avec des plats traités de façon inattendue. Si l’assiette a le bon goût de rester appétissante, Julien n’hésite pas à explorer une palette gustative plus surprenante pour les accompagnements et condiments. Il offre ainsi une cuisine élégante, contemporaine et savoureuse.

Leaving this restaurant, we felt cheated, angry, hungry and food poisoned. Promotes itself as five star haute cusine. By some mistake got into listings of luxury parisian restaurants.
Food was overcombined pseudo-fusion of french and asian. So-called maitre d' was young, stuck-up and self-absorbed. We where given a table, where 2 of us sat on a strange sofa, where you have to literally crawl. Very strangely behaving sommelier (before pouring you 60 years old cognac, she ran around putting the bottle under our noses to smell it). Not so important if you compare it to the fact, that one of us got seriously
food poisoned. After EXHAUSTINGLY discussing celiac disease and allergy to gluten, we were served food containing wheat flour. After eating the meal, the waiter changed the story 3times before telling us there was wheat flour in the dish. He really tried to fool us and lied to us! Many more not so serious errors which made us laugh. So arrogant, so pretentious, so cheap! Go to a real haute cusine restaurant like Le Meurice and forget Lancaster.

Dining in this restaurant was an all around excellent and memorable experience. Beautiful, cosy setting, high quality food, first class menu selection. A must in Paris with decent prices for such a high end address.

Short Review: If you are willing to spend the money for a wonderful dining experience, you should definitely consider dining at La Table du Lancaster. Worth every penny.
Detailed Review: Couldn't visit Paris for the first time and not have at least one five star dining experience. Reserved my table in advance through La Fourchette without any difficulty. Booked an early reservation at 7:30pm on a Monday (their earliest time). We arrived a little early and were directed to the bar. While sipping our French martinis, the staff brought out an amuse bouche of pea tart, herring mousse and anchovies/cheese on wafer. Delicious although our children were hesitant to try. After being given warm towels to freshen up, we were directed to our table. White glove treatment by the staff. Placed our orders for appetizers, main course and dessert. The sommelier recommended a nice wine to go with our selections. First came the assortment of breads (lemon bread, fruit bread, baguette and sourdough). Next an amuse bouche of pickled watermelon with grapefruit foam. Time for appetizers--prawns in Chinese cabbage with jelly; lobster with fruit jelly and salty vegetables. Followed by more bread offerings. Time for the main courses- lamb chops with assortment of vegetables (finely sliced), fliet of beef with potatoes (more complex than it sounds); John Dorrey fish over sweet potato puree and --the hands down winner, filet of sole with a cream sauce with a button mushroom puree with spinach and truffle oil (one of their signature dishes). Each dish was an explosion of taste. My wife (a skilled cook in her own right) was wowed by the taste of mushroom puree I gave her and she refused to believe that it was mushroom puree. That prompted the chef to bring out a complimentary order of the puree to my wife for her own. Next came the cheese cart with over ten selections - our favorite was the Corsican cheese. Finally dessert-- a selection of ice creams (vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut and pistacchio) with chocolate wafers for the youngest, a caramel cigarette filled with marscapone and berries; a strawberry fruit cake and a tart with sorbet. Everyone was content. Just when we though we were done, they brought out another complimentary amuse bouche of desserts for the family -- pineapple over meringue, peach and a melon ball. Needless to say, we were the last family to leave the restaurant and had some great conversations with the staff. To end the night, the staff brought the family back to see the kitchen. Four hours and the kids had not a single complaint. This is not my first five star experience but it certainly was one of the best. Was it pricey? Sure but for the type of food and the overall experience, well worth the money. Just don't tell my wife how much.

It is evident that Michael Troisgros is no longer involved with this restaurant. The food is lacking in creativity. It is certainly not the wonderful gastronomie that was served in the past. The wait staff is average, too, not the polished, articulate staff of the past. The wonderful cocktails have become average, at best. For years, this was our favorite restaurant in Paris. But, after this last dinner, we do not plan to return. Very overpriced for the experience.
