Nicely decorated restaurant with appealing menu. Entrees were excellent but main courses (beef and lamb) both disappointed. The lamb was over cooked and the steak so tough the my wife's steak knife struggled to cut it. Service wasn't great either.

La Ruche is along Rue Colbert, away from a lot of the tourist places, and is one of 3-4 really good places. The setting is very nice, the service excellent, and the food seriously good. We had the plat du jour: two varieties of lamb,...More
