“Great decor, poor meal”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

I had the opportunity to eat in the famous Salle Belle Époque in the back with the beautiful 1900 vitrine. The decor is very charming and historic, which can be a bit too much for my taste but can be very impressive with its chandeliers, torsos, burgundy carpet and white tablecloths, etc. In any case what was disappointing was the food. My quiche with goat cheese and tomatoes was nice and warm but with 4 small pieces of lettuce leaves with some browning edges.my salmon was fine but quite small with no special seasoning (can be Picard quality) on top of this very tiny mount of overlooked stir fried courgettes that were bland. The desert , opera with coffee ice cream, was just way too sweet and no one at our table was able to finish. I also tasted the lemon panna cotta of my colleague but it was also far too sweet, too firm and artificially seasoned (or at least it felt like) to make it "lemon-flavored."

Overall a very disappointing experience with little attention to detail. 2 stars because I think the decor is still worth a visit. So go have an aperitif at the bar and admire the decor before heading out to another place..

“Welcoming”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We had an excellent meal and the staff made our dinner experience very welcoming and comfortable. The meal was very good and we very much appreciated the warm and welcoming treatment at the restaurant.

“Nice food - poor service”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Our hotel recommended this restaurant.
Great welcome when we arrived at the restaurant but the service went down hill after that.
The food was fine, but the service was very poor.
There are so many nice restaurants in Paris - where both food and the service are fantastic. We wouldn't return to this restaurant.

“Some good dishes, but poor service”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Nice atmosphere and some of the food very good- ravioli starter, lamb main and chocolate fondant dessert.
However, we were made to feel very unwelcome by several staff which spoilt the nice atmosphere. One waiter made an effort, but others ignored us and weren't interested in explaining menu options, even though we can speak reasonable french.

Fillet was overlooked and chips not cooked. When they went to change it they brought the steak much later than the chips
Desert not good either
