Unfortunately, we cannot comment on the quality of the food since the restaurant refused to honor our reservation. Despite the fact that the restaurant was empty when we arrived, they told us that they could not honor the reservation (which had been confirmed by American Express just the day before) "because they could not reach us personally" (note they had...

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Paris. The food is always amazing, as is the service. Our expectations about the escargots (Fantastic) are never let down.

I came here twice in the past with parents and the food was great, so I was looking forward to coming back. My husband and I made a dinner reservation about two weeks in advance to celebrate our anniversary. The policy is that you have to call to confirm the day before or morning of the reservation. We decided to... More

I was able to get a table on the same day due to a cancellation, I'm glad I didn't have to go any special effort like so many others have mentioned. Ordered the foie gras, a slab on a plate with no condiments. That foie gras presentation can be gotten all over Paris for far less $$$. The acclaimed chicken... More

yes it is very tiny and cramped, in a mediocre location, and requires a fair amount of muscle to get a reservation, but this is a special restaurant. The gigantic salad and the escargots are the best you can find anywhere. The goes for the steak and the frites, as well. Our son is in the midst of being a... More

We loved this place---nothing stuffy or affected about the ambiance or food. The waiters are hilarious---they grab your coats and throw them up on the wall as they are seating you. The escargot was fabulous, and we ordered the chicken, which was yummy. But I wish we had known that there were 2 parts of chicken per person. After we... More

We ordered the chicken which is their claim to fame and it did not disappoint us. Be prepared to shell out a lot of €€€€'s as the chicken is for 2, but could easily feed 3-4 people. The food is extremely simple, but fresh and well-prepared.

Loved this place. I felt like I might have a heart attack after leaving but that's only because I couldn't stop myself from eating this amazing food. My favorites were the escargot and foie gras. I heard the chicken was supposed to be amazing but we had the beef instead and it was delicious. Definitely a must when you visit... More

My family has enjoyed this place greatly in the past, in fact it was a family favorite. After great difficulty reaching them by phone to secure a reservation, I finally succeeded. I was advised to confirm the reservation either the morning of the reservation or the day before. I advised my daughter of their requirements and she tried to call... More
