Great atmosphere, there are between 3 and 5 appetizers, 3 and 5 main dishes and 3 and 5 desserts. You can either pick the ones what you want or take the "impro" menu and let the chef decide.
While this restaurant is adorable and the service is fantastic (personal, attentive, helped guide us, etc.) the food was hit or miss with the appetizers proving fantastic but the main dish (steak) missing the mark - it was difficult to cut/chew and perhaps not the right cut of meat for the dish. The restaurant has amazing design and is in a hip area, may be best for a drink and appetizer or dessert... or perhaps the other main dishes were better. Either way the price / quality ratio was a bit off.
Great Food and wine.
A remarkable find. Expansive menu with inventive takes on French cuisine. When I made my reservation, I indicated that one person in our party was gluten Intolerant and they had made special preparations for this need (GF bread and a different amuse bouche). There were many options for gluten free dining and a very helpful staff. Great atmosphere and music in the background.
The food was fantastic. And the service was also great. I really enjoyed my meal!
Incredibly tasty dishes made with fresh and local produce. Very original dishes with wonderful flavours. It’s a shame the service was not up to scratch (a one hour wait for the starters) — otherwise this would be a 10/10.
tres bon restau qui merite son excellente reputation
Menu was limited
Excellent, creative seasonally fresh food and warm professional service. Oh, and did I mention a great wine cellar with really good prices? A winne!
Sophie's choice: enjoy the gastronomy upstairs but be stripped of all personal choice, or choose from much less impressive offerings downstairs. What drew me to Botanique were the gorgeous, colorful photos of their food on the internet. What I was served was drab (overly rich and bland lobster penne) and careless (a completely uninspired apple crumble). Only the splendid caviar justified its eye-watering price (55 euro for 3 tiny tartlets). My companions were happy with the terrine and fish of the day, but I was sorry to have dragged them so far afield for merely decent food. It was our most expensive dinner in Paris all week and the least rewarding.
