“Normal food for a quite high price”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Good location close to Av. Champs Elysées, but quite expensive for either normal food. Some combinations are strange and don't taste well.

“A very disappointing experience. Go elsewhere.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

This was our second visit. We went on the recommendation of our hotel concierge in October 2011 and had a good experience with nice food and service.
On November 22, 2012, we made another reservation and took 4 friends with us (total party of 6). We were embarrassed. The hostess and maître d were surly, despite our offering the usual pleasantries in French. The man who was initially our waiter disappeared from our table, though serving other tables around us.

Eventually, the maître d took over taking our orders. He was abrupt and scarce. We waited for every single interaction, enough that we went to another restaurant for dessert. We were quiet and polite throughout the visit, despite the service far below what we have generally experienced in France.
The food was of moderate quality but not nearly worth the price.
The setting is lovely, but it could as well have been in a barn.
I would note that the two older ladies at the neighboring table were treated deferentially, having gotten all the way through entrees, plats and dessert before we were able to find someone to ask for the check.
The hostess sneared a smile as she helped us with our coats.

“All that Glitters Ain't Gold - Looks can be Deceiving”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

I had dinner with some friends in The Berkeley last weekend while on a visit to Paris. I found the whole experience very easy to forget. This Restaurant promises so much to the eye but the quality of Service is Poor and the food is 1 Star in 4 Star surroundings. The building is beautiful and the interior design is wow but they did not follow throgh with The Quality of Food and for that reason I rated this restaurant as Poor . I note from recent postings that I am not alone in this opinion.
