41 Avenue Montaigne, 75008 Paris, France
Love the food and the venue there. The outdoor seating is great and charming. I tried many of their different items on their menu but their morel pasta has to be my favourite. They also have great raw fish starters. They also have decent cocktails.
The Veal cutlets with cream and mushroom a must try. The Pavlova superb. Such beautiful people in one area. Next time i go I will certainly dress up much more. Location very good. You literally pay for what you get.
For the prices they charge the service was awful. It was late morning and I asked for a croissant. Came back and said we don't have anymore(completely get it) but we can give you a chocolate croissant. I said yes, that will be fine. She disappeared for 10 minutes. I asked someone else if they bring me the chocolate croissant they said they don't have any type of croissant left. I explained to her what happened and was told the waitress did not know we didn't have any and she forgot about you as she is eating in the back. The waitress forgot to tell me they are out of chocolate croissants too. Instead of coming to me to pick something else she just forgot. I was offered a peice of chocolate for my troubles and wasting 30 minutes of my day there.
Excellent food, fancy restaurant, very lovable hosting. Service was slow though even though it wasn't too crowded. Definitely recommend for a romantic dinner or a special occasion. Valet parking is available (it's a bit complicated to find a parking spot in the area). I'd advise coming in metro.
We arrived around 5p on a Tuesday (party of 2) and were welcomed and seated promptly. Staff were friendly and attentive throughout. Cucumber martini was fabulous. We also loved the "Six Extraordinary" escargot, and my vegan tofu curry dish was satisfying. As others have noted, patio seating is prime for people-watching. A wonderful experience overall!
