Had a business lunch with 4 other colleagues and found the venue to be excellent for this type of meeting. Very spacious with a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very attentive without you feeling you were being pestered. Great food, nice variety of drinks and I would definitely recommend a visit or 3!

What I love about this place is that it has such a warm and traditional feel. Wooden walls with nostalgic pictures of Paris on the walls. Of course, as most people do, I come here for the steak sandwich. Which is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S. There are other sandwiches but the steak sandwich is just on another level. Served with french fries and... More

Have been twice now and will be back again as soon as I can!! The restaurant itself is so relaxed and roomy which is so nice to see and experience compared to the sterile stainless steel affairs throughout the City. It has a good homely feel to it and the food has been simply excellent on both occasions. I have... More

Dined as part of a small group from a conference nearby and was very pleasantly surprised by how lovely the food was (recommend the baked cod with spinach and blurred blanc) and how attentive and pleasant the staff were. Understated from outside so might have missed it but quite authentically French inside.

This is a well established venue which serves well prepared tasty food in a "wax tablecloth" atmosphere. A more than acceptable place for a casual get together. Sadly the service is rather off hand which was disappointing. I will return but am not compelled to rush back.

Never quite sure about French places to eat but I am glad to say this one did not disappoint at all. The bavette tasted just like when I am in Lyon and the atmosphere is one of years gone by but in a good way.

My partner and I were looking for French restaurants on TripAdvisor and saw this one. We booked a table and received a reminder email the day before.

Doesn't look like much from the small entrance, but opens up once you go upstairs to the main restaurant. Interesting theme, with lots of ties, each with a story dotting the walls. Go choice of mostly steak or meat cuts on the menu. Good quality food and waiter was very attentive. Recommended.

I have eaten in the restaurant many times, however i always tend to visit the bar downstairs. You cannot book a table for lunch and the menu is limited. But the fillet steak sandwich cooked to order is the best steak sandwich i've ever had. At £12.95 served with fries also you cannot go wrong! I'm a regular, service is... More

Description
A family run establishment for over 35 years, Le Paris Grill has a proud history of serving classic French food and wine to generations of patrons since 1978. The restaurant, started by husband and wife team Michel and Pat Trouard-Riolle is now in its 3rd incarnation on Crutched Friars, EC3 having previously been located on Bury Street and before that, London Wall. Many customers will remember the collection of ties which were sometimes cut from around their owners' necks and which are still displayed on the walls. It's a brave man who wears a loud tie here on his birthday!! A collection of the menus from the 70's, 80's and 90's is on display in the entrance foyer. Particular highlights from the early days were grilled sardines for 85p and rump steak and frites at £2.90! The restaurant is now run by Michel and Pat's son, Christophe who is determined to combine the best traditions of classic French cooking with an individual approach to service and hospitality.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
