This restaurant, an assuming front on a street in the Marais, has a very cozy atmosphere, with its signature spiral staircase and small number of tables on both floors. The exposed wood beams, menu on a chalkboard, and old-world feel made for a great feel--the perfect place to settle in for a leisurely meal with friends.
Service was wonderful. Some confusion about the reservation time was handled with grace by the staff. The French menu was very happily translated orally into English. The server was hospitable throughout the evening and had a great sense of humor; he oozed hospitality.
The food was not my very favorite in Paris, but was excellent nonetheless. A fish appetizer was very fresh with nice notes of smokiness. The escargot served in puff pastry cups was a highlight--truly delicious and a nice variation on the classic. The risotto with shrimp was a bit of a disappointment; I wanted the risotto to be creamier. Overall, though, a very good meal.
Would happily return!
