    The young wait staff was lacking in skills and experience. Cocktails were correctly served in the beginning but it was downhill after that. I opted for a salad and main entree, my husband chose an appetizer and main entree. I was served both my orders at once with my husband’s appetizer. His main course came a half hour later only because we asked about it. Salad was what looked like weeds with vinegar, oil and too much salt. The lobster was served cold with a side of warm carrots and tomatoes and a dollop of hummus. (I think it was hummus). The steak was more of a filet mignon instead of the rib eye my husband ordered. That was not quality meat, cooked medium when we asked for medium rare. It was pink on the inside but it took some effort to slice into. Needless to say, we skipped dessert.

    Caffe Stern had incredible food and service. It was a bit hot inside the restaurant, but the ambience is wonderful nevertheless. This is a special restaurant where excellent food is supported by exceptional design, elegance and service.

    The tasting menu was a culinary delight. Each course held a bouquet of delicious flavors that kept our conversation lively. As American tourists our French is limited but we try. The sommelier found us the best wine to fit our preferences. She was very thorough thoughtful and pleasant. Our wine glasses were magically always gently topped off. The staff was very kind and helpful. Their English was excellent though I persevered with my French efforts. What a wonderful evening!

    Very good. Portions were a bit small, though probably the size I should be eating when not utterly indulging. The prices were a bit high, but overall a nice night

    We discovered this little gem on the website of the hotel we were staying in. It is the perfect place for fine dining, an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Passage des Panoramas. We had two courses and a glass of wine. The food was excellent and the staff were lovely - attentive without being too in your face.

    Very disappointing experience. We came with very high expectations, but the food was not better than what you can find in an extremely touristic restaurants. Embarrassingly overpriced for the quality of the food. I felt ashamed having invited my friend to eat there. We got two primi and both were very salty, and after we told the waitress after we paid, she just ignored us :D Definitely go elsewhere if you want to have a nice dinner.

About the restaurant

Located between the Stock Exchange building and the Grand Boulevard, in the heart of the Passage des Panoramas, Caffè Stern has been a must-visit restaurant since its opening in 2014. Housed inside a former letterpress and national historic monument, Caffè Stern is the brainchild of the Alajmo brothers of the eponymous restaurant group and Gianni Frasi, a fourth-generation coffee roaster from Verona. The restoration of the space was entrusted to the famous designer Philippe Starck who has preserved the original charm including the “cuir de cordoue” details, while adding a sense of wonderment with classic Starck details.

Caffè Stern's cuisine is inspired by modern Paris bistros, while remaining authentically Italian in spirit. Every week, chef Denis Mattiuzzi serves Alajmo-style dishes prepared with the best ingredients available at the market. In addition to the seasonal dishes, you can find Stern signaturs such as the potato cappuccino alla bolognese, spaghetti alla carbonara with eggs and bacon, (no cream of course), tagliolini with seafood and pistachio sauce or white truffle risotto (when in season), Venetian liver with fried polenta, pistachio gelato and the not-to-be-missed panettone…! Caffè Stern takes you on a journey into true Italian and Venetian cuisine through dishes prepared with care and skill.

In the dining room, you will find a young and friendly team of servers lead by Eufemia Demuro, who will be happy to assist you with the wine list, which includes wines from all regions of Italy and France. While you “scroll” the menu, don't forget to order an iconic Alajmo spritz paired with a plate of culaccia di Parma (center-cut cured ham).
