I work near Cafe de Paris, and have probably had lunch there well over a hundred times in the last decade, with the occasional dinner visit as well. The food is consistently delicious - the french onion soup, the salads (best dressing in the world!), the crepes, the fettuccini, and even the hamburger and fries, are among the best I've had. When I take colleagues there, Ithey've always pleased.
Specials usually include a fresh fish dish. 99% of the time, these are genuine melt-in-your mouth perfectly prepared. Once, the fish was perfectly edible but just slightly overcooked. It happens. The veal stew with wild mushrooms is wonderful and yes, those really are morels in there.
The service is friendly and willing; they genuinely want to make your experience a good one. I'd have to say they are perhaps not as well trained as one might wish, and knowing how many servers to schedule in a place that can be nearly empty one day and slammed the next must be a nightmare. This is a local family restaurant, and a treasure to our neighborhood. It does not have to be perfect to be loved.
The owner/chef is more than willing to adapt a dish: If you prefer your fish amandine rather than with lemon and capers, no problem. Want chicken with your fettucini rather than clams and mussels? No problem.
For the quality and the portion-size of the food, the price is reasonable. Dinners are considerably more expensive, but again, the quality is excellent so the value is definitely there.
