Relaxing decor, nice ambience and good service. I find it very expensive but its worth for special occasions . One of the best fish restaurants in Paris

“Divine and worth the price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

If you love seafood you must try Le Dome. Their selection of oysters is top and their fish selection is also to die for. Since we could not decide which ones to pick we went for a sampler of 6 kinds of oysters they had on the menu (they were all excellent but I especially loved the Tserkaya's and Gillardeau's). Boy what a feast of taste and freshness!
Then my friend had the Crawfish quenelles and I had the Lotte (monkfish) with morel mushrooms. Both dishes were top in terms of quality and taste. For dessert we chose the fresh wild strawberries full of flavor and the poach pear with chocolate fondant. For wine we had a very good Alsatian Pinot Noir (Louis Beyer). From beginning to end the service was top. We were sitting in a very comfortable booth. Will definitely come back when in Paris!

“Fabulous seafood but expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited Le Dome for our 5th wedding anniversary and very nice it was too! Couple of points though - some reviews state it's formal wear. It's far from this. We arrived dressed up (hubbie wore a tie) and felt decidedly overdressed. Also the tables are a bit close to each other but it didn't bother us. We ordered 12 assorted oysters to start - v v nice. We then had bouillabaisse for 2 which was just stunning. My hubbie ordered the Mille feuille which wasn't as good as it looked - lots of pretty bland pastry and cream. We found the service to be spot on - attentive without being obtrusive. Good occasion dining but be prepared for a high price tag!

“Famous Paris Brasserie and a Must to Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Le Dome is one of the most famous Paris restaurants. It specialises in the freshest of fish although there are other options for those who don't want to eat fish. This is such a traditional French restaurants with booths or the option of sitting under the awning (closed in) over looking the pavement. The plateau de fruits de mer is a work of art, the fish soup absolutely delicious and look out if you're with someone who likes fresh sardines as if you're an expert you'll find yourself filleting them.

Expect it to be noisy, bustling and you may have to wait a bit for service. As befits one of the most popular restaurants in Paris. So make yourself comfortable, watch the Parisiens and wait. As they do.

“Stereotypical French Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Came in for coffee and petite dejeuner and were ignored. When we finally ordered, we were told they were out of croissants. I mean really?! How do you run out of croissants in Paris? Got our bill and took our business to another restaurant. The coffee was good.
