I would love to be able to give a review of this restaurant but when we arrived at the time and date of our confirmed reservation we were informed that the venue was totally booked out for an 'event'. The situation went downhill from there.
We had made a booking (in October) for our last night in Paris (January 8th) as we always like to arrange a meal in a Michelin Star restaurant as a sort of 'culmination' for each trip. So arriving at the restaurant to be told that we 'couldn't have a booking for that night' was more than a little disappointing. We produced our confirmation email but were still met with looks of disbelief and irrelevant stories of the restaurant having been closed in September for renovations, though I can't imagine how that could have affected a booking made in October.
Having established that we were leaving Paris the next day so couldn't come back the next night (was that really their best offer ?????) the best they could do, apparently, was to see if their 'colleague next door can fit you in' - that being Les Cocottes. Somehow sitting up at the bar in a noisy 'bistro' environment didn't quite compare with the dining experience we were expecting that night, and the food was actually quite ordinary.
When we eventually asked for the bill, having spent less than an hour over what was intended to be a leisurely and extravagant dinner and having to shout to hear each other while we ate, the manager consulted the chef who said our meal would be complimentary. Absolutely the least they could do I would think.
Overall a very sad a disappointing experience for an evening we had been looking forward to for three months.
