“Grand Finale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

We went at the end of July for our last night in Paris. We had an amazing time. The food and desserts are very, very good. The atomsphere with Harold makes you feel quite special. However, you need to how much you want to spend before you go. Harold is so smooth that he will have you drinking champange, which is really good, and spending lots of money if you are not careful. We budgeted for about 100.000 euros per person but spent less than about 60 euros per person with champage, we shared one appetizers, one entree each, one dessert each. We probably spent 2 1/2 hours dining but it felt like 30 mins. Paul took pictures with our camera and was generally a great host. I could not have thought of a better way to spend our last night in wonderful Paris.

“Very good food and friendly welcoming service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Went here mid-week in July 2012, the restuarant was full and the service from the maitre d' (Harold) was efficient and welcoming at all times. The food was very good as was the wine selection, and the value very reaonable, Would definitely return.

“Last dinner in Paris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

Great food and experience, but expensive. We went there recommended by trip advisor and were not disappointed!

Paul himself was there and the foiegras with orange Cointreau was excellent!

Service was excellent with the bar tender very personable! Great find in a neighborhood that is calm and quiet.

“Best dining experience in Paris!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

On our recent trip to Paris, we returned to Paul Chene to celebrate a special birthday and anniversary. The experience was even better than the first! Fabulous French cuisine, the ultimate cognac, and Harold's outstanding, personal service. After dinner, it's just a short walk to the Eiffel Tower - making this the perfect evening in Paris!

“Fantastic meal !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012 via mobile

The food is fabulous. Had the pan fried frois gras - amazing. The escargot (a dozen!) we're escarGone not long after they arrived. They were traditionally prepared and delicious. The lamb and fish equally as great. Don't forget to ask for the cognac soufflet. It's made with Harold's family' private cognac label. Harold is quite a character and will make you feel right at home.
