Description: Located right next to the Palais des Congres convention center and the Avenue des Ternes, Chez Georges offers the elegance and conviviality of an authentic Parisian brasserie. Here, the great classics of French cuisine are brilliantly executed as tasty, refined meals. A legendary meeting place for the 17th arrondissement, Chez Georges dates back to 1926. Its up-market, traditional cuisine and tableside service have made it one of Paris' must-visit brasseries. Designed by the architect and decorator Slavik, star of the 70s, the decor at Chez Georges pays tribute to Art Nouveau, with leather banquettes, silverware, wood and copper to give the restaurant a warm and elegant atmosphere.

“A very good experience”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Everything from service, ambiance, food and wine list was a "4" or better. Can't say that any one element was exceptional but a very good experience that we would repeat.

“One of my Favorites in the World”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Whenever we are in Paris we eat every available opportunity we can in this place. It opened in 1926 and survived an occupying army and everything else you could throw at them. The food has never disappointed and I doubt it ever will even into its next century. Tried most of its menu over the years. The herring in oil, with onions and carrots; the white asparagus; the lamb; the variety of fish and last time the Iberian pig in a plate licking sauce. Went nuts over the tartare as near as good as the best in the world in Calgary,Alberta Canada. The wait staff is super as attentive as you could possibly expect. Tried the profiterole roles covered with a great chocolate sauce. This place is so good it required a two day stopover in Paris en route to our destination in Ellmau Austria. This is by far the best value for money in all of Paris in terms of great food.

“To Be Avoided”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Expensive, mediocre food and too fast yet inattentive service (which is hard to do) makes for a very unhappy experience. The escargot were tough, the meat of poor quality and the service was unsmiling and focused on getting us out the door as quickly as possible. Excellent location, but there are so many better places to go.

“So delicious!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Upon walking round the whole of Paris this December, we were desperate for dinner and happened to remember a review of this restaurant. Everything about the meal, from start to finish, was delicious. Even the bread and butter was sublime! The duck lasagne was possibly the most amazing thing I have ever eaten, my friend even said she didn't want her meal to end because she was enjoying it so much.

We left really stuffed and really happy. The waiting staff were really friendly, and happy to talk to us and give us menu recommendations. I would plan a trip back to Paris just to eat here again

“Excellent Choice -- All Elements Present for a Great Meal”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

There are endless choices of places to eat in Paris. It is not meaningful to compare a 3-star to a bistro. Chez George has been around a long time and in the bistro/French Comfort Food class--this is one of the better choices.

Food: Excellent. Great range, including many French classics. The appetizers (particularly the truffle macaroni), entrees (filet, sweetbreads and chicken--all were spot on for seasoning). There are daily specials, but they run out before 8 pm. Execution on every dish was spot on. As to those who complain about "medium" being too "rare" -- this is just how it is in France. Tell them pink, not red--and they understand.

Service: Pleasant--easily handle English--and friendly. Well trained staff.

Ambiance: Excellent. The interior probably has not changed much since it opened in the 1920's, but still it is clean and the decor fits the menu. A bit of step back in time. A lot of Parisians were present.

Wine List: Short, but very reasonably priced.

We enjoyed this meal much more than some of the more famous choices like Brasserie Lip, other choices in 5th and 6th and were thoroughly impressed. Worth the effort to get here.
