Reviews of interest

Ruth Reichl (2014) “It was, from start to finish, a miserable experience… I have never had such bad service in an expensive restaurant… food that reminded me of nothing so much as first class airline food.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “ carte nous ramène bien dans l’hexagone, les étendards de la cuisine françaises sont là, langoustine, ris de veau, volaille de Bresse, profiteroles, savarin…la magie du lieu participe autant, si ce n’est plus, de celle de la cuisine…”

David Lebovitz (2008) “Once they hit their stride, and hopefully they will, I hope they combine the well-prepared food with perfectly-polished service, worthy of such a dramatic setting.”

François Simon (2007) “C’est assez impressionnant de dîner ainsi au dessus d’une des plus belles cités de la terre. Les desserts, par chance, ne jouent pas aux Einstein (savarin à l’armagnac, soufflé au citron vert). Service véloce avec cette niaque propre aux premiers jours. Paris compte aujourd’hui un nouveau (bon) restaurant.”

  1. It is, without a doubt, the best way to experience the Eiffel Tower, for two reasons: first, they have a private elevator to the restaurant, which is located on the second level…so no waiting in line to go up! Those lines are LONG, so it’s a big deal, because after the meal they let you go onto the regular observation deck, then return to the restaurant to leave…second, now that acclaimed Chef Alain Ducasse oversees the menu, the food is good! Here are pics:

  2. I enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch at Le Jules Verne in June last year. It was amazing. The selection of free deserts that they bought out before our ordered deserts were astonishing- their passionfruit meringues were astonishing- revelationary- and possibly the best thing we ate in two weeks in Paris!
