    When I arrived there was a huge group of 30 people eating,no one took any notice of me, they were too busy with the group. I had to go up to 2 waiters to get seated. After 15 minutes I had to get up to find a waiter so that we could order drinks and again when we wanted to order food, even though the group had left . I got up again when we wanted another drink. The only thing that I did not need need to ask them for was the bill, which arrived as they decided they wanted to close! The waiter was sullen and unfriendly. I would not go back.

    Enlightened to experience that this part of Paris history and tradition are well kept - and that the brasserie is still a place for people to meet to eat, drink and talk

    We could observe that all the tourists (= not french speaking guests) got bottles of water, for which they had to pay (7,60 Euro p.p.) - the french guests got caraffes of water for free. That ist not ok!!!!!

    Celebrated New Year's Eve here with my wife on our second time to Paris. We found this place through The Fork, they had a preset menu which was €69 per person and seemed like a value compared to other restaurants. I had the Duck Fois Gras for the entree, the Rossini Beef Fillet for the starter with Truffle Purée, and the Large Macaron for desert. All but the entree were great for my palette. I found the duck flavor to be a bit unique and couldn't quite finish it. The Beef fillet was very tender and paired really well with the mashed potatoes and a size able portion. The staff and our waiter were all very nice and gave us enough time between dishes and made the experience great. The space is a bit small and they offer outdoor seating as well with heated lamps.

    We were looking for a nice place to celebrate our last night in Paris. I read a number of reviews where people said that place should be Le Zimmer. We got a table just inside but with panoramic views of the square. The waiter didn't speak much English and I did my best with my French but he was very pleasant and helpful. The food was very good, while a little pricey. The onion soup was worth it all by itself. However, the burgers were large and tasty and my daughter enjoyed the chicken and my son, the ribs. My wife had a very filling salad. The place has a very interesting history as well, I suggest you read about it before you go.

About the restaurant

Le Café "Le Zimmer" existe depuis 1896. Elle fait partie des grandes brasseries parisiennes fondées à la fin du 19ème siècle par les grandes familles alsaciennes ayant investi la capitale. Le cadre de la brasserie est d'ailleurs classé aux monuments historiques. L'ambiance recrée par le célèbre décorateur Jacques Garcia se veut intemporelle, cosy, comme un retour à l'époque Napoléon III: elle est faite de velours, grands rideaux et fauteuils sur mesure pour un confort et un bien être maximal.

L'histoire du Zimmer est étroitement liée à celle du Théâtre du Châtelet : des portes permettaient autrefois aux spectateurs d'accéder directement à la salle du rez-de-chaussée et au salon du 1er étage.

Le Zimmer attire ainsi depuis toujours une nombreuse clientèle d'artistes et d'écrivains : Jules Verne, Emile Zola, Sarah Bernhardt, Gustav Mahler, Claude Debussy, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Richard Strauss, Arturo Toscanini, Edmond Rostand, Marcel Proust, Serge de Diaghilev, Guillaume Apollinaire, Igor Stravinski, Vaslav Nijinski, Pablo Picasso et bien d'autres ont fréquenté cet établissement.
