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 !

While on a trip to Paris with a friend, we went for the lunch menu. It was flawless from start to finish.

Hard to find any flaws, the course menu is delicate, well thought and really surprising coupled with a professional service ! One if not the best 3-stars restaurant in Paris. It is a one of a kind culinary experience that I would recommend to any gourmet travelers eager to give French cuisine a try.

The service, this people look like they really know what they are doing, and they love it! The food: modern cuisine, delicious 5 course lunch with new unexpected flavors. Size was just right, and dessert was to die for. What a great experience! They did give us the information for their restaurant in London and Las Vegas, hopefully we can... More

Went there to dine few days ago and wanted to write a thank you note to say thank you for the wonderful experience and overall great atmosphere. Then, called up the restaurant to clarify the name and position of one of the staff and was rudely told off on the phone and questioned why and told to call back later.... More

Lunch started out a bit confusing, not least because as a good restaurant goes, they had a separate menu for the lady. And having read reviews on prices prior to lunch, i thought it best for my husband to make the choices. He studied the ala carte menu and the lunch set menu and had the good manager walk over...

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary by dining at Pierre Gagnaire's restaurant. EVERYTHING was perfect. Not a single complaint. We have dined at the very top restaurants in NY, Chicago, London & San Francisco - all enjoyable experiences. However, Pierre's restaurant is of a different class of its own in the type of food that he serves, the presentation, the... More

We enjoyed the Pierre Gagnaire experience on our first night in Paris with the restaurant being situated directly next to the hotel in which we were staying. The restaurant is well set out and offers a calm and intimate dining experience with large tables to accommodate the large number of dishes being served. The "main course" is split into five...
