“good location but poor service and not good value”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

I had diner with a friend in the Brasserie de la Pepiniere- the food was ok but not food for the price.
I had 1 Bar and the fish was overcooked, very dry. The same for the crepe not fresh and not tasty at all.
My friend had a salade nordique which had nothing special, the dressing was not good and the price was 16.50 euros for a salad.
The crepe was 7 euros!, the Bar 21.50 and 4.50 for the Heineken and 4.70 for the leffe

The service was the worst ever in paris.

“What a poor excsue for a french bistro”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

This brasserie is what helps keep the image alive that in Paris as a tourist you get fleeced. 6,60 euro's for a cappucino that is mediocre at best! Food is way overpriced and should be served with a warning. I mean, it's not horrible, but it is far from good and certainly not what you want to pay money for.
Go here if the rest is closed, or if you like a good view more than good food.
Service was friendly, but haughty.

“A dream. A nightmare, better”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Well located brasserie, below average food, buth when you receive a handwritten school squared ticket with no information about date, place, taxes, service"compris" or not, you look for hidden cameras or so. Where is the child in charge?. But not, this is the way we had to pay. Unforgettable, we are still laughing cause we decided not to complain, it didn't worth it.

“A very pleasant Parisian Brasserie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

I had lunch there with French colleagues on a business travel to Paris.
We had good service for France, the waiter was attentive and efficient, the atmosphere of a typical Parisian brasserie was a great experience.
Though it was rush hours we were not at all urged to finish quickly our meals.
I recommend Brasserie Pepiniere and will have lunch there next time I come to the French office.

“Usually open”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

This restaurant 's claim to fame is that it is open most of the time and was near our hotel. The service is slow and the menu caters to their idea of American taste. Lots of thin French fries with everything. Ham and cheese omlets. Crepes with Nutella.
