I arrived here with 9 friends and no reservation! We were made to feel very welcome in the upstairs room, even though our French language skills are poor. They served one of the best pieces of steak I have ever had in my life. I really appreciated their effort to make beautiful food, match it with excellent wine, and serve... More

This little restaurant provides an excellent and relaxed night out, we were looking for a large table for 7 of us and a child. No problem, we were seated in a charming upstairs room with a cosy feel. For entree we ate les Grenouilles (crumbed) - delicious and crisp. Also an excellent pate platter. Most of the table then had... More

This was the best dinner we had in Paris. They were so sweet and friendly. The waiter didn't speak English, so he enlisted the help of one of the cook staff who gave us a great overview of the menu. They took care of wine suggestions and even got the whole restaurant to sing Happy Birthday to our guest of... More

The food was sublime, between us we tasted the pate,mushrooms and escargots. All pronounced a success. Beef fillet was the best I have had bar none. The chicken was enjoyed by others. Being the...

We didn't have a reservation, but lucked out and got the last table available. The place filled up soon after and we heard them turning many away. We suggest you reserve before you come. This restaurant lived up to the expectations set by earlier reviewers. We were welcomed warmly by a friendly and cheerful staff who made us feel at... More

A small, exceptionally friendly restaurant with great food. Every element of this meal was a delight. It offers a mix of traditional French food (I confess to having the crepe Suzette for dessert! They added an extra dash of flame when I missed a photo opportunity) and some unusual (for me) options that made use of seasonal produce such as... More

It's rare to find a restaurant as good as Memere au Piano. The staff is very friendly, you almost feel like eating in your own dinning room that's how comfortable they make you feel! The food is absolutely delicious and goes superb with their fine selection of wines. I don't know what to recommend because I've eaten there so many... More

This was a fantastic find in a city that has so many good options! We enjoyed a range of French favorites with a creative take. We thoroughly enjoyed the creative menu which featured seasonal ingredients. The staff were warm and took the time to explain each item in depth. The smiling chef even came to our table to describe his... More
