Philippe Toinard (2014) “Si la maison a du style, le service en salle n’en manque pas…La cuisine est au diapason, élégante et raffinée sans jamais tomber dans le « m’as-tu-vu » à l’instar de ces queues de langoustines saisies à la plancha, escortées d’agnolotti (pâtes farcies) de potimarron et kumquat (agrume), le tout recouvert d’un bouillon des têtes de langoustines à la citronnelle versé à la dernière seconde.”

Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “C’est l’une des terrasses idéales pour les beaux jours, l’un des cadres – champêtres –  les plus chics de Paris…un repas de fête et de luxe au calme…”

Alexander Lobrano (2009) “…brilliant contemporary French dishes with a ballast of classical haute cuisine…exquisite food and service in a grand and romantic setting…Though 85 Euros isn’t pocket change, you get more than your money’s worth at La Grande Cascade, which is, with this menu, a terrific choice for a recession era splurge.”

Le Figaro (2006) “…superbe des jadis de second Empire et de Belle Epoque. Brillante d’être hors du temps…”

John Talbott (2014) “Today pesky Yankees, tomorrow the NYT?”

Alexander Lobrano (2014) “Precise modern bistro cooking with beautifully sourced and vividly fresh produce… the perfect retort to the ongoing kerfuffle about whether French food is still good anymore or needs to be saved or some such… I couldn’t help by being moved by the deep desire to please and nourish that so clearly motivates the admirably proud, hard-working and hospitable Bidaults.”

Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Avec cette placidité provinciale qui fait le climat de derrière Denfert, une jeune auberge qui s’y entend à cuisiner le simple. Bonne copie classique : produit net, recette claire, assiette sans rature. On n’en demande parfois pas plus…”
