I was invited here by family and had a marvelous lunch in December 2015. Everything is top notch. Walking into the lobby, the restaurant (which is relatively small), and of course the food. Several in our part enjoyed truffle flavored dishes, and I had a seafood medley.

I visited Alain Ducasse with my mother for breakfast - and what an excellent choice it was! The service, quality of food and not to mention how visually enticing the restaurant is! 10 out of 10! I will definitely be returning!

I had the pleasure of dining here for lunch in July. One of the most visually stunning restaurants I have visited. Excellent service, amazing presentation, and delicious food. The size of the space is not overwhelming. The pace for the courses was ideal. Will definitely be back for dinner.

From the greetings to the endings, a lovely place. A glorious room, the staff all attentive. Menu is quite good for breakfast and maybe we needed to order less food, but the pastry platter and brioches were excellent. A great start to a one day in Paris.
