“The food stands out!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Cuivre stands out from this ultra competitive restaurant space in Shanghai. We were there for Sunday bunch. The brunch menu was about RMB200 that provided 3 courses plus 1 nonalcoholic drink. It offered pretty good variety of selections which were not overly focus on egg and toast items as compared to many other brunch menu that we had seen. This was modern french food done with a very refreshing and light appeal. Dishes were cleverly done with good fresh local and imported produce that gave good balance in flavor. Service was efficient and the team was able to provide good explanation to the menu to help selection. Ambient was rustic, hip and comfortable, We are always spoiled for choice when it comes to good restaurants in Shanghai, However Cuivre has that unique appeal that may bring me back for another treat very quickly.

“Wonderful food in a great environment”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

The best meal we had in our entire China trip. We had the risotto and tuna tartare to start which were beautifully prepared and we savoured every delicious mouthful. Steak and moules to follow which were also delicious. The service was both attentive and charming, and the overall ambiance just worked. Value for the quality was excellent - don't think twice! Top marks to Fanny for her leadership and vision.

“a nice place to enjoy simple but very good food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Went there for a nice evening on saturday night. had reservations, arrived a bit early, they had a table for us.
the waiters speak english, the owner welcomes you, she is very nice and warm.
The menu is presented on an ipad, it makes it fun and hip
there is a very good selection of dishes, from traditional to original. Portions are perfect! Everything is very tasty.
wine by the glass so you can really build a nice authentic dinner.
desserts are to die for!! you leave the restaurant happy, full but not over fed, and smiling.
We will come back.
We came with our teenage daughters who found nice dishes, out of the fries or hamburgers... we were very very pleased.

“Good service, good food, good wine”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

As the title says it, the food was good and tasty, just that my steak tartare tasted only mustard, I asked to change it, they took it and didn't argue. The new tartare was much better, but still a little to mustard taste. The french manager advised a very good wine (she knows well her wine list).
