    The food was amazing. This is now my go-to place for French comfort food.

    Wonderful evening. Unfortunate that our table was booked for a waiting party thus rushing us a tad.

    Friends had recommended Chez Fernand and we were thrilled with our experience. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. The service was fantastic. The food was great — and they played background music that we loved (American 80’s music). It was our first night in Paris and it kicked off what we hope will be a fabulous week.

    The specials on the blackboard were outstanding. (If they have mushroom appetizer, it's outstanding.). I had the beef bourgoin it was excellent. My husband had the veal, it was excellent also. It is very french and very fun. Well worth it.

    Chez Fernand for me and my husband is our favorite restaurant in Paris. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is nice and cozy. The service is very good and the attendants are professionals and always very happy.

    This restaurant came very highly recommended and was mostly perfect except for the rude and nasty waiter who gave us the bum's rush. It felt like he was doing us a favor by feeding us and taking our money. There are a bazillion restaurants in Paris and I will never visit this one again.

    Friendly host and hostess. Popular place - it filled up early, unusual for France.

    French Onion Soup and Beef Bourguignon were exquisite. Other dishes were good but not exceptional. Service was very good and friendly. Like many Paris restaurants seating is tight. 90% of the other diners appeared to be US tourists. This was intended to be a “special meal” to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it certainly lived up to that. The price was similar to what we’d paid in another upmarket restaurant the night before and double what we’d paid for an excellent meal in a “local” restaurant full of French diners the night before that.

    Flavoursome food but expensive. Wine & drinks too much (average red wine €45, still water €6:50).

    I am a frequent customer of Chez Fernando Christine, and this place almost never disappoints. I brought my parents here today for the first time, but was really disappointed. 1. Food was average. The guineafowl was dry, the escargot was dry 2. Service was slow, but felt rushed when we were finally served. 3. It took 20mins before we even had a bottle of water on the table. I would expect, especially in this heat, to have a bottle of water immediately as we sat at the table. 4. It was almost impossible to get the attention of the staff if we needed anything. Not the type of food and service I have come to.expect at Chez Fernand Christine. Really disappointed today.

    Chez Fernand Christine's "feels" right. It's friendly, welcoming and the wait staff couldn't be better. I always enjoy it, and it was perfect for lunch on the 14th of July.

    If you like bistros, you're going to be very happy here - with the restaurant itself, with the service and with the food.

    This place offers mainly traditional French fare, and it's hugely overpriced for the decent, but not great, quality of the food. The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff friendly--although far from efficient. The restaurant's location in the touristy 6th arrondissement doubtless added to the price.

    The ambience, service and food were superb! Especially liked the beef bourguignon. It was melt-in-your-mouth tender in a wonderful sauce. Definitely a go-to restaurant next time in Paris.

    Food was really good, we had cod fish and chicken. Both very enjoyable and light. Only annoying thing was the way the waiter was cleaning up the sofa by slapping a cloth just next to you... not really nice nor elegant.

    Very friendly service--host was charming, gracious and wore excellent shoes. The boeuf bourguignon and duck were terrific, as was the Wine suggested by the host. A lovely experience!

    A hidden gem with the best atmosphere, excellent service and incredible foods. Ordered bone marrow, white asparagus, French onion soup, langoustines for appetizers....each was the best. Dinner included stark, veal chop, monkfish, duck breast and veal kidneys...incredible flavors, all done exactly as ordered and plentiful. Wines were st Julien and Bordeaux at reasonable prices. Our waiter was very fluent in English and had a great sense of humor. Definitely will go back again and again.

    Smallish old stone/brick wood beam ceilinged rooms almost cavish very lively ambience great friendly n helpful staff, speaking English no less! Food very flavorful some even being served in kitchen ware pots/turins. Downside for this meal... egg dish was overdone as I prefer runny yolks (maybe need to specify?) and no Tartar de Boeuf this night as listed on previous menus however the Boeuf Bourguignon was quite succulent n more than made up for it!
