“Ahhhhh, mmmmm. Not what you'd expect or like”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Lunch crowd had people waiting outdoors so we thought this could be the one. Despite tripadvisor reviews, we wanted to give this quaint locally owned place a shot. Had "stuffed veal" but stuffed with what? Tough tomatoes and bland mozzarella didn't start the meal off well so caramel dessert on fixed price menu should have ended with a bang but it was obviously prepared days ago bc it was sitting in a liquified mess. For 13.5 euros thinking we should haw enjoyed something more palatable but not tonight. Don't be lured by the crowd and find something else.

“C'est magnifique”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I was there with a group on 31 March. This is a very cozy and family oriented restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was personable, and the location is just off the beaten path. We were in Paris for 3 days and this was probably our best casual dinner experience there!

“So sad.”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

We have enjoyed tasty, low-priced meals at Chez Georges for more than a decade. At our most recent visit, it was a shadow of its past. The burly waiter had no people skills, little knowledge, brought the wrong wine, could not bring a check - our French is fine, the problem transcended languages. The food showed abysmal quality of ingredients, too many problems to list here. The onion soup was acetic, the duck orange was tough as a log, the pistachio ice cream tasted like soap - my wife had french fries and ketchup for dinner. This is a family restaurant - the patriarch passed away not long ago, and we are very sorry and miss his quiet presence. The family has big management problems and I wish them well in solving them and hope Le Paradis becomes again the treasure I remember. We will try again and hope you will too, but this review could not honestly be otherwise.
