    Very pleasant "Belle epoque" restaurant. The interior is absolutely fabulous. Food is very well prepared and good portioning. We got the 30% discount from thefork which made it a very good deal.

    Great restaurant. Also, quite the bargain when 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 desserts, 2 glasses of wine and one of cognac cost only 108 euros. Visit, you will not be disappointed.

    Food was good, the waitress was nice. But we were placed very badly. The most of the tables were free, even after we finished. It feels like not every customer is treated equal.

    Bouillon Racine

    Dear Valdimira, Thank you for the time you took to share your feedback about your recent dinner at Bouillon Racine. Sorry for the fish bounds found in your fillet, fishes are prepared manually which can cause some oversight. Best regards Bouillon Racine

    The best part was the Art Deco decoration. Really added to the mood and ambiance. Cocktails were good too! Innovative selection of vegetarian dishes. Would return again.

    This restaurant was amazing. The food was divine - flavourful and well priced. I have had to rate it lower due to the rude waitress we had. We thought it a one off until everything was plonked down on the table with an, almost, disdain for our existence. Without her, it would have been five stars all the way. Don’t let this experience turn you off, even if you get her, just ignore her and enjoy the amazing French food.

    Dear Matt, Thank you for the time you took to share your feedback about your dinner at Bouillon Racine. We are sorry to read that your didin't like the service provided by our waitress.

    All in all disappointing. Decor is lovely and deserves better. Starters were mediocre with over-cooked tuna and flavorless tomatoes. Mains were the real disappointment. Spare ribs were bland and filled with grease. Maigret had flavor but was so tough it could hardly be cut. Dessert was ok, but to write home about. Wine though was good and fairly priced. Service, unfortunately, was almost nonexistent.The place is packed though so the owners and staff must know something that we don’t know.

    Dear Gary, WXe thank you for your feedback even if your dinner didn't live up to your expectations. We are sorry to read that you didn't enjoy dishes served, and your remarks will be transmitted to our chef.

    Terrible service, staff couldn't cope with number of diners;(restaurant was only half full). Waited 25 minutes for menus, after 50 minutes still no drinks/ water brought out to table, our party of 4 simply left after bringing how bad the service was to the managers attention (he blamed the waitress although he did nothing to help). Can't comment on the food as we didn't get the opportunity to eat it!

    Bouillon Racine

    Dear Lee, Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your remarks about your dinner at Bouillon Racine. We are saddened to read that your experience in our restaurant was disappointing. It's clearly not the image that we wish to give to our clients and you're pleased to accept our most sincere apologies. We had to face to staff absence the day of your welcome which caused some service difficulties. We hope that we will have the pleasure to welcome you back in the future to prove that your experience was the exception rather than the rule. Best regards Bouillon Racine

    The setting was very stylish. Made you feel you you were about to have a special experience. Unfortunately we did in a bad way. The service was really bad (although the waitress was very kind and helpful) they were understaffed and the food was not in comparison to what we paid. With 2 adult and a 10 year old we paid 125€. We have had much better meals in Paris for almost half the price. We will not return here and I wouldn’t recommend anYbody to eat here.

    Very good place for welcoming guests from abroad, biz lunch and romantic dinner. I tried pork ribs and it was one of the best ribs I tried. Really recommend the restaurant if you'd like to find a good French restaurant with a reasonable price.

    We really enjoyed the food quality. The only issue we had was that when we asked the waitress if gratitude was already included in the price, she said no so we added extra 10% as tips but later we found out it was indeed included in the price. This should be made clear to the patrons.

    Bouillon Racine

    Dear Anne, Thank you for your good comment about your dinner at Bouillon Racine ! Regarding your remark about the tips, this misunderstood is certainly due to a lack of comprehension. Moreover, our menu mentionned that service is already included on our prices. Best regards Bouillon Racine

    This is definitely a well known restaurant though seemingly older tourists-targeted. A reservation is a must. That said, the food is ok while the atmosphere is very classical French (mirrors, gold, white linen, etc.), which is probably most appealing to those coming to France on holiday. The restaurant is very busy and service is rushed and somewhat impersonal. At one point a wait staff leaned into the table to pour wine while getting his jacket flutter about touching my main course. I was not impressed. It is the same waiter who spilled a whole glass of newly poured wine all over the table. Not once did he offer to replace the glass of wine. We were with guests so did not want to make a scene in front of them. I was most unimpressed with the service of this wait staff who by the look was neither young nor inexperienced. Based on this service and the 'ok' food, I am not sure I would come back.
