    Food was only OK. It would be fine in a French style restaurant in another nation. For Paris, just sad, tired renditions lacking taste, texture and presentation. Service was awful: Inattentive wine service (we had to pour our own). The Busser tried to clear plates from the table while my wife was still chewing, etc. The restaurant was less than half full so little excuse. Wine list was weak and generally expensive. Of 12 Dinners in France this trip, this was among the worst. Its also clear that his restaurant spiffs Hotel Concierges to recommend it. When we walked in we were greated with: "What Hotel referred you?" In sum, a disappointing tourist trap.

    The meal was delicious! Great wine selection! And we are foodies! So very critical & fussy when choosing a restaurant! Enjoy

    Overall, the restaurant was a little disappointing. We were looking for an exceptional Paris dining experience and was a little let down. The food was good but just average. The menu was limited. I had the duck liver pie for an appetizer and my wife had the 4 small plates. All were good but not exceptional. For dinner I had the duck breast and my wife had the pork roast. Both were good and flavorful but not exceptional. The service was matter of fact and a little distracted. The restaurant is very plain and dated. The prices were not exorbitant and were fair. Wine list was again OK but kind of limited. It wouldn't take much to make this into a great restaurant. Drapes on the windows, some art, flowers, carpeting or updated floors. Wait staff more attentive and dressed well. Expand the menu. Finally, if you want to have a step above a bistro dinner, not fine dining, and pay about 300 E for a good adequate dinner. This is a good choice.
