He were there around 7:30 with no reservation. The fried frog legs were incredible, such as the frog hamburger. Even the sauces that come with the bread are amazing. A bit pricier than the average, but it is definitely worth it.

I was first taken here by a friend who lived in Paris. And now I return with every trip! And I still haven't had frog's legs! (not sure I can). It's a fabulous restaurant full of life and verve, Don't miss it - it's fun, authentic, and at the heart of Paris.

We went to Roger to try frog legs on the recommendation of a friend. The staff was very nice and didn't seem to mind that we were just ordering a dinner entree of frog legs to share. We also got wine. The frog legs were amazing

Roger is one of my favorite restaurants, bar none. I loved the older version, with frayed carpet and dated decor and massive menu. There was a certain glee in giving indifferent service -- the English-language menu back then was labelled "Menu de Canaille": Idiot's menu. Given this, I was a little worried about the new version, new menu, new decor,... More

This is an archetype of a Parisian restaurant with true patina. Fantastic food if you like marked flavors. Frog legs many styles but broad menu for all. The decor is eclectic but oozes fun. Lots of locals which is always a good sign. Could be a bit more clean. Not cheap but worth the money.

Delicious frogs legs served quickly! Our host was lovely and we were in and out within the hour in time for our tour! It is a cute restaurant and I can imagine enjoying a full 3 course dinner there and some drinks in the future as well! Highly recommended!
