About the restaurant Chez René

"HISTORICAL LAIR - Paris would not really be Paris without these gourmet monuments. Chez René, an institution of the left bank since the 1950s, bistro-chic decor is handled to perfection: rows of white tablecloths, seats in red leather, copper hooks, Picasso, Botero and others on the walls.

SMALL RETRO DISHES - as a good Lyon restaurant, the establishment treats regulars to the grand classics of the region and the must-have French ones: bone marrow grilled with thyme flower, black radish with cream, fresh froglegs à la Provençale, hot Lyon sausage with pistachio, warm apples with oil...

PROUST'S MADELEINE - After this tour de France of local cream, can you still find a small square? The legendary "

Our 3rd visit in a year and the standards are consistent. Classic food in a vibrant setting. Our server, Daniel, was efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. The restaurant was full and he was very busy but we never felt rushed or forgotten.

The chocolate mousse was delightful, as was the pork. However other items were disappointing, like the steak and the undercooked frites. However, what soured the whole experience was the extraordinarily rude waiter - every table in his area was made to feel upset or uncomfortable - ruining the whole atmosphere.

Great lunch for me and my family. Even though we don’t speak French, we were made to feel very welcome by our waiter Daniel. The food was quite delicious.

We had an amazing meal. Daniel was our server and was fanstastic. He gave great recommendations and the wine he paired with our meal just made everything taste incredible. A classic French menu and great atmosphere. We loved the food and the service!

I came early and got right in. My server, Daniel , was great. He was friendly and helpful, nothing like the stereotype of the haughty, arrogant French waiter. I had a glass of Sancerre with a delicious foie gras.and then had the house specialty boeuf bourginon. The restaurant interior is attractive, decorated with art museum posters. Good location on Blvd San Germain.

This is an old-school Parisian restaurant which is what we were looking for. Food was more than acceptable with very large portions. Daniel our server was fantastic.
