We ate here because we had eaten at Pierre in Hong Kong and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant and wine cellar are really nice. Some tables particularly up top seem a little to close together. The service was very good easily 3 star. The food however was not that great. I had a lamb dish which was uninspired and... More

After twice eating lunch at Pierre Gagnaire's this was my first dinner experience. We took the tasting menu with accompanying wines. From start to finish it was culinary brilliance with artistic flair. We were delighted to be greeted by the chef himself before our meal and from there on in the curve of delight went up and up. A fantastic... More

Note - I visited here in April 2015 Looking at the menu online, I was somewhat concerned that there was no prices associated with the dishes. A sure sign we couldn't afford it. When we arrived we were greeted by the staff and offered some water as we were led to our table. We had legged it down the Champs-Élysées... More

Went here with lunch. Each course (and the 2 amuses bouches) had between 4 and 6 different plates. Some plates very a little bland but most tasted very good.

The service, atmosphere and food were easily worthy of its Michelin star. Our waiter and sommelier were very accommodating, and this ended up making our night. Absolutely incredible food with excellent service and a true delight for anyone who appreciates gourmet food at its best! Every course was a picture on a plate and the flavours were amazing. Simply the... More

Had dinner last night at the chef's table for the truffle tasting menu. One of the best meals I have ever had. Not only was the food spectacular but the service was amazing and friendly. Completely lives up to its ranking and reputation. Certainly one of the standout meals I've ever had and I have eaten at many 3* restaurants.... More

With no doubt the best meal I have had so far (lunch menu)! Quite an amazing experience! An explosion of flavors ! From start to Finish. The Chef welcomed us when we got in and the maitre d'hotel insisted we meet Pierre Gagnaire before leaving the restaurant. Zero error. From surprise to surprise. We opted for wines by the glass...

The best! There is not much to say....The food is so good and creative. I went to several PG restaurants and I love it. PIerre Gagnaire is one of the best chefs I know. There are many really good ones and some of them are even better. Go there and try it !
