Bofinger poursuit sa lente dégradation et on sent que la maison n'est plus tenue. Installés à une table entourée du matériel de service, nous avons dû demander que tout ceci soit débarrassé, ce qui a été fait partiellement. La cuisine est très décevante, la choucroute n'a plus la qualité qui avait fait la réputation de la maison. Le filet de turbot a dû être renvoyé car il est arrivé froid ( surgelé?) et ensuite il a été servi brûlant et trop cuit.
Nous ne reviendrons plus, dommage.

Unique atmosphere. Old Brasserie. Excellent oysters and brasserie type of fare, namely the famous Choucroute Garnie and baba au Rhum! There may be a little too much patine! Refreshing the details could bring back the splendor of the room.

Typical ancient French "Brasserie" (1864), with 2 large rooms ground floor, one with a gorgeous colored glass cupole, and more rooms at the 1st floor. Very good food, especially fish and seafood, professional service and good quality / price ratio if you take the formula. To test, definitely !

Bofinger is a beautiful, old, iconic Parisian restaurant. The waiters are not the warmest and welcoming servers, but nonetheless are extremely professional. You can tell they take pride in their service. My friends and I all ordered the 38 euro prix fixe menu. All 3 courses were plentiful and delicious. The wine list is a tad expensive, so we ordered the house wine in carafes which was very good.

the food was slightly disappointing. I had the choucroute de la mer, and it had clearly been sitting under a hot lamp before the service since the fish was a bit dried out, although delicious. Also, the sorbets ordered were mixed up although the waitress immediately brought the supplementary flavors that were missing from each order.

What makes this place special is its interior, especially "la coupole". They serve Alsatian specialties (Choucroute), Fish and Seafood and some brasserie classics. Since it's a famous place you will have to pay a little extra, but we thought it was certainly worth it. The service was impeccable and after all, it's a place you go to for the experience. A mixture of (often underdressed) tourists and local people. In our view it is definitely not a tourist trap.

Beautiful institution of a restaurant which takes you back to Paris in the twenties, near Bastille, perfect for family gatherings or special occasions. With everything from seafood to meat, all was fresh and delicious.

Food was very good, service very fri3ndly, and above all the 19th century decor of this typical parisian brasserie, with wooden panels and stained glass ceiling is really fantastic

The food was really delicious and the set menus excellent value. The Belle Epoque setting stunning. But Bofinger knows its status, its 150 year history, its importance as a draw for visitors so has a certain Parisian 'hauteur' which isn't as welcoming as a dozen other restaurants in the area. So rather old-fashioned in a way. Mistakes in the order and the bill were corrected without fuss but without apology either.

Make sure you ask for a table on the ground floor. So much more fun and the wait staff is on their mark.

But we always come back.

It is a traditionally popular restaurant in Paris, which I had enjoyed in the past. Unfortunately yesterday's experience was not as good. The onion soup remains probably the best Inhave had, but to eat only that after been siting at the table for 1 hour and 40 minutes woukd disappoint even the most patient. The remaining dishes we had were nice, but nothing to write home about. In the end 3 hours were too much for everyone.

Very good food however service was disappointing. Waiter made mistake after mistake and had to be constantly corrected. Staff somewhat 'abrupt' but hey, it's a Paris brasserie! Despite the rough spots, still a good resto...
