Reserve a table on the beautiful terrace, a serene setting with its peristyle of imperial columns, sweeping view of the surroundings, restored mosaics, wicker, linen and potted palms. It is located in the left wing of the Grand Palais through the Alexandre III rotunda. The menu was designed by three star chef Eric Frechon (Le Bristol) who installed his protegé Stephane d'Aboville as acting chef. The service, food and presentation were all excellent. A particularly nice touch was the giant, warm Comté cheese gougère served with our pre-dinner drinks.

We recently visited this restaurant after a day of shopping along Champs des Lysees without a reservation and they accomodated us. Beautiful location and ambience with both indoor and outdoor seating. They also have a resident cat, which depending on your taste was interesting. The food and waiter were great, he offered excellend suggestions on food and wine. One possible downside would be its expensive, between 2 we spent $200, but it is definitely worth it for us and that was with entree, main dish, dessert and a bottle of wine for both

The service is a buffet, at least at lunch, where you buy food and drinks and find a table. We had a salad and a smoked salmon sandwich which were very good. We also had a cafe latte and a bottle of water and it cost 24 Euros. The locale is nice and pleasant, we sat on the terrace, but it is not exactly gourmet quality food.

We arrived in Paris from cold and rainy Moscow, we rested and looked for a restaurant walking distance from our apartment. What a good decision. We were seated on the terrace overlooking the petit palais on a beautiful starry night. Attentive and excellent service. Food was perfect as was the presentation.

I booked a table for a business dinner, and I was not impressed with the service and food.
the only positive feedback will be the beauty of the venue and the location.
