“Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Bouillabaisse was mussels and other shellfish. Nothing you would recognise in Marseille. Service was good. Probably will not return. OK just not special.

“Active Scene at Felix”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

After a long cold New England winter we arrived at Felix on a Saturday afternoon at 5:00 to find the large doors open to the street and fresh spring air. The place was full of life and a very fun atmosphere. We sat at the bar and had a little early dinner, all the while watching the world go by in and out of the restaurant. Very European feel with soccer ,not basketball, on the TV. Affordable with great food.

“Very French - good food but as expected, awful attitude from servers....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

Early Friday evening. bar area busy and a good ambiance observed. Most of the dinner tables occupied so a healthy atmosphere overall. Waiter offered explanation of specials but we stuck to menu. No water offered. Starters and main course were good, though not spectacular. The longer our dining experience became, the less friendly the staff were. Looked very much like a demarcation zone between the servers - one will not enter into another area, so we had to wait some time for our waiter to be available for more drinks and the bill, despite other waiters serving nearby tables. Same with the servers - no mans land in some areas. Good wine list and selection of beer but is one supposed to drink Kronenbourg 1664 from a wine glass? Regret that I had to as no other glass provided.

Overall, nothing to write home about though with most restaurants in Paris, the food is fine, but the attitude and courtesy from the waiting staff leaves much to be desired. If you accept this as being part of the French eating experience, then you won't be disappointed.

“Good French food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

The food is great, very typical French cuisine. Well executed. Very nice restaurant with the "bistro" style. I just didn't like the too French attitude in some of the staff members. Other than that good place for French food

“Best Steak Tartare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Was recommended as a nice casul French/ Brazillian eatery, but turned out to be an amazing french bistro. The food was amazing and the ambiences equally nice. Make sure you have an American Express as that is all they accept.
