    Service was pleasant and good. However the meal was not hot which gives the impression the plate was sitting under a heating lamp. I had asked for my lamb to be well done, but it was only medium and I couldn’t eat it.

    A lovely restaurant with a warm welcome and beautifully presented and tasty food. We had the duck and tuna which were both perfect, with a decent bottle of wine. Would eat here again when next in Paris

    When we first arrived we were ushered to seats on the upper level tucked away in the corner. It was quite warm and a bit claustrophobic. But, once we were served our first dish, we quickly forgot about seating and enjoyed the incredible food.

    I asked for the best table when I made my reservation online. I was very happy that they remembered when I arrived to see a very romantic table by the window. It was the best table in the house! The food was delicious!

    This is a wonderful place little place with fantastic dishes. Both of our meals were perfectly prepared and the service was great and knowledgeable. Would not hesitate to visit again next time we are in Paris.

    Food good but not creative or inventive. No air conditioning. Table close together. I can tell you that they turned away several people so their reputation precedes them. Service was friendly.

    Very good food and ambiance. Service was a tad slow last night but the waitress did cancel our redundant reservation which was good. Value for money is not great compared to some of the other places we frequent regularly in Paris. The restaurant would do well to offer a reasonable fixed-price menu around 40€.

    Everything about our dinner was outstanding in all aspects. We enjoyed the table for two by the window, upstairs. It was perfect on our rainy spring day. From there things only got better, from our great waiter who did a wonderful job explaining and guiding our choices to our meal which was absolutely fabulous French food. Something not to miss.

    Friendly service, nice atmosphere. Tasty wines by the glass. A bit uninspired garnitures to the dishes, basically same salad and mash to most orders we could see. Had expected more imaginative sides to the meat. One of our lamb pieces over marinated/dry as it was the first cut from the rack, while the other cut was nice.

    Really can’t understand all if the 9 and 10 ratings. We ate there and all of the food was consistently bland. The vegetables were mushy and over cooked. The risotto was as well. Both of the proteins were under seasoned which was a shame as the quality of them was good. Over all very disappointed in the food and having spent 3 hours there with the last 45mins having to consistently ask for the check and be ignored. This should be a skip bc I don’t understand what has warranted the high ratings, unless everyone that has come here has no taste. Who knows.
