While the atmoshpere of the restuarant is a bit sterile, the the dishes are inventive, the food excellent and service very good. Prices are correspondingly very high.

The place is nice there is nothing to say, well decorated and very high and impressive ceilings. The service is ok. We booked a table the week before and even if there was few tables available we had to sit in the "shared long table" just back to back with another couple with loads of empty seats. If you are...

The restaurant has such a name and reputation that we felt that hen had to give it a try, but we were obviously very disappointed. I had just a salad and a seabass and both meals had basic presentations. The salad was full of vinaigrette sauce which made it hard to swallow. But the fish was the worst, it was... More

We went there in a company of 12 with kids. The staff was quite good, they brought food for the kids very fast, which is a good sign. We tried two dishes each, everything was on a highest standard. We spend very good time there. They have a bar next door which was super convenient for the ones who smoke!

We were a party of 12. We were seated in the Bar area (we made last minute reservations via a "friend"). We were 5 children, four middle aged adults and three senior citizens including three vegetarians. The food was spectacular. We tend to share so I had an opportunity to try many dishes, all of which were great. We were... More

Beautifully appointed restaurant with a hard to identify entrance. Arrived for our booking and were shown to a nice table. Good friendly and competent service both from the waiters and sommelier. Ordered mineral water and an outstanding Chateuneuf Du Pape. Then the food arrived. My partner had Crab Gnocchi which was under seasoned, very rich with average presentation. I had... More
