Paris restaurants open in August

We haven't been to Paris in August in probably 20 years but are thinking of going this year. Can anyone comment on restaurant closings then? On our last August visit I remember that very few restaurants were open. Still true?

Try thefork.com. It is an online Paris restaurant booking system. Look for some restaurants for the dates you will be there. If you want a wonderful place hope that Philippe et jean-Pierre are open...

The vast majority will be open. With something like 14,000 restos, you will still be spoiled for choice!

Family-run restaurants are the ones most likely to close for all or part of August (or even in late July). And sometimes the owners don't decide until the last minute about this. But there will be many many places open throughout.

Most restaurants are open year round. It is true that the smallest places often decide on the spur of the moment whether to close or not, depending on whether there are any customers or not.

Gastronomic restaurants are the most likely to have official closing dates every year, because it is much safer to have skilled personnel on holiday all at the same time rather than risk a drop in quality due to the absence of a key person or two.
