Description: In his cooking, Cyril Lignac expresses a modern version of traditional French gastronomy. Uninhibited, graphic and uncomplicated cuisine that is also generous and authentic. The chef's leitmotiv, applied with and by all his team, is to highlight the very best of local and regional produce and showcase the work of small-scale producers and artisans. It is this vision of a balance between modernity and tradition that Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty, two talented interior designers from Studio KO, set out to reproduce for this Michelin-starred venue of fine food. The two of them, who share Cyril Lignac's affection for light smooth lines, endeavoured to create a cocoon-style interior that is both cosy and contemporary. In the dining room, the warmth of velour-upholstered bench seats sits easily with the mineral-style modernity of walls in black mosaic. The tablecloths and tables are chic and add new light to the restaurant's hushed atmosphere. The flattering evening lamp fixtures turn softer and gentler as they delicately shroud diners, seemingly leaving the star role to the food and the comings and goings in the kitchens, partly visible through a wide bay window. And that is not forgetting the terrace, a vast area protected from traffic and the buzz of the city by a drape of greenery. An oasis of peace and quiet, ideally located in a pedestrian alley, just a stone's throw from the Parc Andre Citroen.

First Time and we were quite disappointed as the quality of the food was not as good as it should be for That type of restaurant especially when you have à Michelin star .
It was original neither as we had some classical dishes , the wines are expensive too so at the end the night , we had to pay for something which was not memorable at all as it was my wife's birthday so you can imagine how frustrated she was as I was.
We won't go back there, no way and we won't recomended neither.

Le Quinzieme is not centrally located, but rather in the residential 15th arondissement - thus the name - which was a rather long Metro ride from our hotel. However, it was totally worth the trip. I went with my husband, celebrating 30 years together, and it was as close to the perfect meal as either of us has ever eaten (and we've eaten at some very fine restaurants). We had the tasting menu, paired with wines, and while expensive, if you're celebrating a special occasion, it will be a meal you'll remember. Amuse bouches were delicious single bites prepared with as much attention to beauty in presentation as to exquisite taste - a couple of examples - a perfect cube of seared smoked salmon, a fingernail sized Parmesan tuile with chevre and basil, a single cockle baked with stuffing and a lovely saffron sauce, a super fresh shot of green pea soup. First course to follow was foie gras with an apricot gelee, toasted almonds. Second course, sole with a white wine beurre blanc, garnished with tiny roulades of zucchini and chive oil, vanilla mashed potatoes...and it just kept getting better. Each course wonderful all the way to the desserts and mignardises. It's an elegant, refined and almost minimalist dining room which still manages to be warm, and gives diners enough space between tables to be intimate. Wait staff were superb - and when they (almost instantly) realized we spoke more English than French kindly accommodated us. The sommelier is very good as well - the wine choices were delicious and spot on. Near the end of our meal we mentioned that before our trip we hadn't seen many reviews in English, and staff confirmed that they don't see many American, English or Canadian visitors. That's a shame - for those who appreciate fine cuisine, it's worth the trip, and since our visit was the highlight of our time in Paris, I know that when we return to Paris we'll visit again.

We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. It was just amazing! Every course was beautifully served, perfectly paired and left us wanting more.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday.

The restaurant itself is very cosy, even though I have to admit that it was a bit fresh inside.

We had the "menu de dégustation" and as we had one person who cannot eat any fish, they were flexible enough to change the menu for him and replace the fish.

The different parts of the menu were truly excellent, but I have to admit that portions are not very big. If you are a big eater, do not forget to take a piece of bread with each menu, otherwise you might end up hungry.

We had the matching wine with each of the menus, as I am not a wine drinker myself I can only rely upon the judgment of the other people at the table, but they all said that the wines were excellent.

Cyril Lignac came personally to each table and greeted each guest by shaking hands with them. During the meal he stopped by one more to ask whether we were satisfied. This made him really very likeable to us.

The only strange thing all of us noticed - do they save electricity on the toilets? None of us have ever been to such a dark toilet. There was basically just one very , very small lamp and a candle...

As for the price of the meal... yes, the price is high! But as the food was really excellent we can live with the fact of having spend so much money for a meal.

we went to this restaurant as recommeded by friends, most of the critics were laudatory. we really are disappointed with the quality of food for an establishment of that rank and practices with respect to tariffs.
We hope that this was just a bad evening because there seems to have potential.
regrettable for us because it was a bad experience.
