“Innovative Food in a Strange Location”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

This restaurant is not in a location where you would usually find a great dining experience -- one window overlooks the back of the Post Office near the Gare St Lazare!

But it is so popular we couldn't get in for dinner, so lunch was a great alternative. The food is innovative and beautifully prepared. The atmosphere and decor are lovely. We each started with Pate de Foie Gras with lovely toasted brioche. I had the Roughey with vegetables and pureed potatoes and my partner had wonderful Ris de Veau with artichokes. Desserts of a wonderful banana and lemon creme on a chocolate granache surrounded by "wings" of caramel wafers and a beautiful construction of a cherry parfait in a tube of some sort. There is a nice wine list by the glass.

This place is not cheap -- especially by US standards. But is is a lovely dining experience

“Do lunch and be amazed!”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Hidden away a block away from the Gare St Lazare SNCF marshaling yards is an inventive chef making amazing food, which is impeccably served in a serene environment.

First, get a reservation regardless of whether it's for lunch or dinner, since walk ups are always turned away. The place is quickly becoming "discovered."

We had their sublime monkfish ("lotte" en francais) main dishes which were exquisitely carved to look like lobster tails. For desert, we most strongly recommend you try "La sphere destructuree" not only for its taste but its dramatic presentation.

Their wine list is superb ranging from the affordable to the divinely priced.

Count on spending at least two hours talking, eating and enjoying.

“Good food for the price value”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We ate at this restaurant one night and had the T bone steak for 2 as the main and was a good choice as the beef was tender and moist. Overall food wise for the price was reasonable and service was immaculate though at times it good get a bit slow once the local Parisians start to dine (8.30pm onwards). Decent choice if you are staying in the neighborhood.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

I took my husband to Paris for his birthday and we had dinner at this restaurant on the first night because it was local. The food was amazing, the staff were really accommodating given we couldn't speak English and the atmosphere was pleasant. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

“Very talented French chef”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

We had dinner here tonight and it was absolutely first class from beginning to end. I asked for a salad or fresh vegetables as an entrée which was not on the menu. What arrived was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious - fresh, healthy and wonderful flavours. Very clever. Our main courses were perfect - cod and scallops and our dessert was magic ! It is unusual to find a chef capable of mastering both savoury dishes and desserts - but this lady does it to perfection. Not to be missed
