Our last night in Paris, France and decided to have an elegant dinner at this restaurant which came highly recommended. What a mistake! Waited 10 minutes before even asked for a wine or drink order and they gave us a young waiter that knew no English. Wine menu is very expensive and we ordered the most inexpensive Bordeaux at 58.00 euros. Our party of six finally got our orders to waiter who could not explain how items were cooked. One couple ordered a chicken to share and it took almost an hour to be served. Others ordered beef and it was not cooked as ordered. Medium rare came out very well done and had a very tough time cutting. One member ordered scallops and what came our was sea bass. Sent it back and waited an additional 20 minutes to replace. Just a horrible evening and a restaurant we will never go back too. Waitstaff should be trained which was lacking and for an expensive meal did not meet our expectations!
Don't waste your dollars or euros here! Even the maitre'de was no help other than to say he was sorry. We did not even leave a tip which we did in all other restaurants. It's too bad our last meal inParis was a disaster! We have eaten in many fine restaurants in the world and this will rank at the bottom of the list! Left much to be desired!

Some american friends were visiting Paris recently and invited me for dinner at this newly launched restaurant in the Hotel Fouquet's Barriere. I had been at La Petite Maison in Dubai at DIFC(Dubai International Financial Center) a year ago and enjoyed it very much (considered by many the best restaurant in Dubai). This is a sister hotel to that restaurant and another restaurant with the same name in London- the original one is located in Nice.
This one did not disappoint either. I had what I believe to be the best 'ratatouille' I ever ate anywhere as a starter. A nice surprise was the way the different types of bread was presented in a brown bag! The service was excellent, attentive and professional. I found the restaurant set up exquisite. Well worth a visit if you are looking for good high end traditional french cuisine when next in Paris.
