Short review: You'll probably have a nice dining experience as long as you make sure when booking that you won't be seated at the table nearest the kitchen. Longer review: First, and most importantly, the food was excellent. Unfortunately the table closest to the kitchen is too close to the heating lamps used by the chef and it produces bright, unpleasant light and heat which are not conducive to a fine dining atmosphere. When this was pointed out the manager's reply was also unfortunate: "These are heating lamps" as if it excused anything. When told that this table should then not be used, the manager pointed out how small the restaurant is, as if it justified why the customer should be uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I am sorry to say, it is the restaurant's owners' responsibility to make sure all the guests are comfortable and the guests should not have to suffer from the planning shortcomings of the owners. If your restaurant is small and you cannot afford to waste space, then perhaps find another way to keep your dishes warm or rethink the layout of your kitchen. To her credit, the chef did acknowledge the issue and tried to minimize the use of the lamps but it remained a nuisance. This review is meant as constructive feedback and not trying to overly disparage what would otherwise have been an enjoyable dining experience. I hope they will improve.
Excellent, comme d’habitude.
You won’t find a better place in Paris for twice the price. Fabulous, inventive dishes beautifully prepared. Definitely go for the wine pairing as well.
Excellent food. Quite small and thus quite noisy place. The waiters friendly but either too tired or bit bored. Still a very positive experience.
A sweet little restaurant with beautiful, subtle, dishes -- complex yet also somehow simple and deeply natural. You taste every gorgeous ingredient. That said, apart from a divine fig granita that tasted like breathing in fig trees smells -- it wasn't an especially ecstatic meal, partly because subtly seems to be its point. But that's a good thing too. Every element of every meal was high quality and carefully thought out. The lunch menu is certainly worth it, and friends of ours raved endlessly about their dinner there too.
A small gourmet restaurant holding 10 tables in a cosy setting. A set menu with 6 dishes is served for all diners. A nice variety of small dishes. Unfortunately the 2 main courses were a bit bland (needs some kick) but overall a nice experience. We paid 220 euro for 2 (2 set menus, bottle of wine and 2 glasses of wine). The waiter has charm and good humor. A foodie insider place.
Wonderful restaurant! The food was fantastic (and beautiful) and the atmosphere was very cozy. Will definitely be coming back!
Magnificent food with intricate flavours and perfectly plated too.
This was my second visit but I didn't get to leave a review the first time since my boss had booked. Innocence is a gem of Parisian gastronomy. The setting is intimate - only 5 tables, and all the activity in the kitchen is visible but yet the noise level is very quiet. There's a fixed menu with an optional wine pairing so decision making is very simplified. The preparation and presentation are exquisite throughout and the wine pairings delightful. I brought my wife and some friends from California and everyone just marveled over every dish. We couldn't pick a favorite since they were all outstanding. This is a restaurant that should be on your "must go" list when in Paris.
Fantastic meal of 6 courses and many other small bites paired with some excellent wines. Highly recommended!
Superb and inventive cuisine. Fantastic service and accompaniment
Young talented chefs, wonderful presentation, delicate and soothing special "petals". Very thankful for this gift.
Excellent tasting menu and wine pairing. It isn’t easy to find food if this quality without fuss and fanfare. A job well done
Excellent food and considerate service. We enjoyed every mouthful of the delicately prepared meal. The chef’s skill in combining flavours, cuisson, bringing out sophistication in simplicity is amazing. Highly recommended when visiting Paris.
Creative, beautiful and delicious. Every dish distinct and layered with flavours. The basil sorbet that was part of one dish is one of my new favorite things in the world.
Wonderfully innovative food, and the wines (bio) were simply excellent. A young team with fresh ideas and a passion for sustainable delicious food, and beauty.
