    They barely checked on us and tried to overcharge for drinks that we did not order.

    The food and service was top notch but the wine list might be the best part. Obscure producers of some unheard of wines.

    This was the best meal we had in Paris. The whitefish tempura was amazing. The burrata and radicchio were great and the duck dish was incredibly delicious. We have one more night in Paris ( tomorrow) and we’re considering just coming back for anything we didn’t try and more of what we loved the first time.

    Food was excellent and inspired. , sommelier and wine list were very good. Would highly recommend. The veal brains were honestly mind blowing.

    Sat down and was immediately asked to order... the menu was very one note (several raw meats, only three entree options) and we decided not to order beyond a burrata, which was admittedly delicious. When we asked for the check, the waiter had the nerve to tell us this was a “Res-raurant” and that we should not sit down for one drink and a starter... we restrained ourselves from telling him the menu was uninspired. We noticed the couple to our left was also struggling to find enough to order. Very disappointed, on the whole.

    Overall very well balanced plates and interesting combinations. The duck pithivier was really very well executed: perfectly cooked and the jus very lean and tasty. Very good and interesting wine list.

    The beautiful room has been ruined, despite keeping the clown tiles. It's like a Soviet prison cafeteria. It took over 90 minutes for two courses, and my monkfish was leathery and flavourless. The people next to us abandoned their dinner after the starter because they'd been waiting an hour. Staff were nice, but this place was dreadful. We'll never go back.

    Very disappointed. After hearing so much about the fantastic food we didn’t expect the food to be mostly flavorless with parts slightly burned and missing texture. Service was however impeccable but sadly not enough to save the overall dining experience.

    We had a 2:30 reservation and arrived promptly at 2:30. I used the bathroom and as soon as i returned the waitress told us we had to order NOW as the kitchen was closing. We felt very rushed and would have gladly come at 2:15 is that would have been better. The food was great and after that initial pressure the waitress was very helpful. The restaurant was very quiet and really had no “mood” to speak of as it is very small.

    We had a lovely meal at Clown Bar! The service was wonderful. Knowledgeable wine expert who helped us find a bottle that we loved. The food was innovative and fun - great mix with a twist on traditional french food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to someone visiting Paris or someone who lives there and wants a fun meal!

    Excellent dishes, creative and well executed ideas. Veal brains are delicious, duck and foie gras pie was out of this world.

    Something clearly went wrong with a supplier leading to a long wait for our mains, the otherwise very good front of house staff didn’t use this as an opportunity to improve our experience and it led to a delayed second service for the next round of people.
