“Beautiful find”
Reviewed 25 November 2012

We have visited Paris annually for over 35 years and are always on a hunt for good dining without the Michelin star prices and this restaurant fits that well. We were four people and each of us had a creative and high quality meal and a very comfortable dining experience. The husband and wife team are inviting and helpful with those who do not speak French by translating each selection carefully and answering questions with grace and clarity. The fois gras was as good as we have enjoyed in a long time. The decor is modern and beautiful. This is a find that we hope will be a delight to others wanting a good dining experience in Paris.

“comfort and class”
Reviewed 19 November 2012

I guess it would be exaggerating to describe my experience as an elegant lunch. I'll just say that the white table cloths, appealing menu, prompt service, and subdued ambient noise level made for a special mid-day experience.

“Wonderful lunch”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We had a 2 p.m. lunch reservation at Le 122 so we arrived as most people were finishing their meals. We were the last to leave at close to 4 p.m. We never felt rushed but had gracious and charming service throughout the meal. The food was outstanding -- especially the lobster risotto which was included in the fixed price lunch for a small supplement. The escargot appetizer and lamb entree also were excellent. I also liked the ambience which was starkly modern but still welcoming. The meal was expensive but good value for the quality -- especially in Paris.

“Our best meal in Paris!”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

A French friend of ours took us to Le 122 on our first night in Paris and he spoiled us! Truly one of the best meals I've ever had in my life. The space is light and bright and a nice option to the normal Parisian bistro. The shrimp/gambas starter was delicious, as was the lobster risotto dinner.
My husband had the chef's terrine and the veal and loved every bite. The dessert? The best chocolate cake EVER. The owners (a husband and wife) and the chef (who worked at Daniel in NY for 2 years) were welcoming and generous, suggesting wine and Armagnac after the meal. This was a fantastic, memorable night and we can't wait to go back...
