    We had a wonderful dinner here during our last evening in Paris. We started with two coupes of champagne, which was very good. My wife had the in-season white asparagus entree, which she really enjoyed, and I had the fois gras, which was excellent. We both had the salmon main course, and enjoyed it. Our waiter, Dennis, recommended a red Bordeaux that we really liked. The decor of Café de la Paix is lavish but tasteful, the service was great, the seating was uncrowded, and the food was delicious. This will be one of our go-to favorites on future visits to Paris!

    Even though we received confirmation from OpenTable the restaurant did not have our reservation. Instead of being gracious they just kept saying they didn’t have our registration. Finally we just had to say,”You are clearly not busy as your restaurant is practically empty. May we please have a table?” They did reluctantly give us a table but acted very put out. We booked this reservation for our anniversary and noted this in our reservation but of course nothing was said about it. The service during our dining was very good, however! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was absolutely stunning!

    We had a fantastic experience with welcoming hosts who all spoke English and were very friendly. We had the Caesar crab salad and pan fried sole with butter which both tasted amazing. The ambience was also lovely. Overall, great experience and made my wife’s birthday lunch special. Thank you.

    The restaurant was beautiful and centrally located but that’s where the praise ends for me. The food took almost 2 hours to arrive and after the insane wait, the food was sub par. The prices were ridiculously high. For example a glass of basic champagne for 22 euros! No thank you. The staff was nice when you could actually get their attention. Overall it was an abysmal experience for such a highly touted restaurant. 1 out of 10 would NOT recommend again.

    Café de la Paix is a beautiful, gracious, somewhat dressy restaurant, right across the street from the Opera, where we had tickets. The food and service was among the best, and our friendly, knowledgeable waiter was marvelous. Friendly to Americans.

    Perfect place to go before a ballet or opera at Palais Garnier which is right across the street. Upscale, elegant $ loved the sole. The only hiccup was they did NOT show reservation, but when I pulled it up on Open Table they finally sat us. Not sure why they could NoT fine the res. by my last name . We were in a tad rush so to waste 10 minutes for me to try & find online w/ internet not great was aggravating & especially after booking well in advance. Therefore, did not have dessert. They were very nice though once I came up w/ a res. # but I think they should of had. Moral of story… call & follow up every week a few weeks before to ck on your res.

    Emblematic Cafe Brasserie in Paris! Not my first visit and probably not the last…Excellent sea food, but prices rocket probably due to the pandemic. For a 3 courses dinner and reasonable drinks (glass of champagne and 1 glass of wine) someone should count 150 eur/pers.

    First, the place was nearly empty and they tried to seat us at a table as far away from the windows as possible, in a remote corner. Luckily we asked for a window table and, after checking with higher-ups, they were able to accommodate us. The food was average but the prices were outrageous, even for Paris. Would never return.

    The quality of the food was really disappointing. The onion soup was bland, the accompaniments with the main were incomprehensible and not very tasty. The staff was not to blame: they made a lot of effort to provide excellent service. However, in the end it's the food that counts, and it just wasn't up to standard.

    A fantastic evening thanks to a great service from the restaurant manager who helped me address the original inconvenience at arrival and looked after me all evening with great care to the rest of the waiters who made me relax with fresh selection of oysters, great fish selection for mains with delightful crustacé sauce and the famous millefeuille to finish accompanied by nice Calvados!
