Small but elegant, serious food, knowledgable and gracious service. The cheese plate was extraordinary. All in all a great restaurant.

Absolutely fabulous food. We both had the daube which was delicious. We had read of surly service but everyone was charming . Go early or late to avoid the queues for lunch ( we went at 3pm and got the one empty table straight away). This will undoubtedly be a restaurant we return to.

we arrived by noon, otherwise good luck with seating...i started my meal with one of my favorite entrees, oeufs mayonnaise, which was excellent...the mayonnaise great served with a quarter of a cabbage with a light vinaigrette and tiny onion rings which added a nice crunch to the dish...also had braised beef (shoulder cut) with roasted vegetables served up with a classical sauce...great meal...

Great menu with a lot to select from, artichoke salad delicious, foie gras dishes best in the city, rack of pork mouth watering, desserts incredible. Brush up on your french, no one speaks english, it is Paris after all. It will spoil you,for any future bistros you might go to.

We have tried to get a dinner reservation here a number of times and have never been successful. We were walking down the street on a chilly & damp day and were getting ready for lunch. Realizing where we were we stopped at Le Comptoir. The place was packed but the line was short. 20 minutes later we were seated at a small window table. I understand why reservations are nearly impossible to get - the food is excellent & the restaurant very small.
The lobster bisque was fantastic. Rich and warm in all the right ways. The Provencal stuffed squid was really good. I also enjoyed the steak - great, earthy, rich sauce. They are very focused on excellent quality ingredients and make a point of saying who butchered the meat. Nice wines with a good number of half bottle selections.
I am glad we found ourselves in the right place at the right time and had the opportunity to enjoy this excellent restaurant.
