This historicle temple of 2 michelin stars rewarded restaurant, still decorated in a style of like 300 years ago serves food that is no longer qualifying as great food. The starter of ravioli with fois gras and a fois gras avec kumquat was oke but not great, thinking of a 100€ pp starter? And 2 bites of the foi gras... More

And it's a happy occasion. The room is very special. I don't know anyplace else with murals like these. And certainly there's no place else with windows looking out on les Jardins du Grand Palais. Wow! The lunch menu was limited but everything we ate was excellent and beautifully presented. The lobster bisque was unique - flavored with Asian spices... More

Was really looking forward to an amazing experience at Le Grand Vefour. We've been to our share of starred restaurants: I would question whether this one deserves star at best. Mediocre food: nothing fresh or inspiring; infact some of the puddings were sickly. Appalling service, with staff that lacked any enthusiasm for the food or customers. The interior is impressive,...

The foie gras was superbe and for main course the canette was cooked perfectly. It was delicious and melted in my mouth. The chocolate dessert with the salt de Guerande was very original and excellent. The service was very discret and flawless. The restaurant is beautiful.

Beautiful setting. The food was very good, desserts superb. The service is however not up to a two star rating. Very surprised by that for the price and the excellent reputation.

Yes, the place looks great, and you can feel a lot happened here. The staff explains it very well, is very friendly and helpful. A lot of lobster and caviar on the menu. We took the 7 dish gastronomic menu with pairing wine; it was a bit disappointed to see that the signature dishes such as lièvre à la royale... More

Our family has been here before and we all fondly remembered the place as where Napoleon and Josephine once ate...and that time the food was truly memorable. Sadly, this time it was not memorable, good, but not great, and at these prices, one expects great. Service perfunctory, little warmth; sharp contrast with Guy Savoy, for example. The food was good,... More

The lunch menu, while one of the most expensive among 2* restaurants in Paris, is absolutely amazing. Food is extraordinary! The service is impeccable. And to top it, we were greeted by the chef. Absolutely magnificent!

What amazing grande cuisine! Very relaxed atmosphere for such a classy place, that's probably what makes it even classier.Guy Martin himself welcomed us! The Lunch Degustation Menu is the perfect deal! So much to taste at the end! Very highly recommended!!! We were celebrating my 45th birthday and some other important events and we could not have dreamt of better!... More
