“Great neighborhood cafe”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

A wonderful cafe for a delicious French lunch. The staff was so helpful in explaining French bills and translating the menu. Fun to watch locals greet each other as they passed by the outside seating area.

“Nothing to complain about”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Just another enjoyable Paris restaurant recommended by the concierge at the Marriott Rive Gauche hotel. My wife and I shared a beef steak for two. The portion was more than generous and the potatoes and mushrooms that accompanied the beef was delicious. One amusing situation (to Americans at least), is if you order two scoops of ice cream, they are served in two individual bowls.

“Food good; service attentive; good value”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Prices were very reasonable for Paris. There were 6 of us, and we all enjoyed our meals. Concierge at Marriott Rive Gauche recommended the restaurant. It was a rainy Friday night on holiday weekend and the place was packed. Despite this, service was very attentive.

“Generous portions...”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

We went here for lunch on the recommendation of the concierge at the Marriott Rive Gauche. It was popular and busy but we got a table and were served promptly. The salad plat was a huge serving with a lot of lettuce which is fine if you like that kind of salad. Just so so. I did see the large tartines which looked very good and it seemed to be popular with locals.

“Simple and honest food, excellent wines”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

L'Alouette is a nice modern French brasserie which serves simple and honest French food for reasonable prices. The wine they serve is really excellent, my personal favourites are the Cahors and the organic Bordeaux. Also try for dessert one of the delicious "tartes" and "clafoutis" on display. It is nicely crowded in the evenings and it is one of the rare places in Paris where a woman alone can have dinner withoug feeling uncomfortable. Unlike the other reviewers I have never had any problem with the service: the "garçons" are efficient and courteous.
