    Atmosphere and service was excellent . Starters and Main courses were nothing special. However the salted caramel Mille feuilles was amazing.

    The ambiance is really Parisian. Loved the live piano music. The food is simply heavenly. From the little cheese buns to the delicious starters through melt-in-your-mouth wild hare or lamb, everything was absolutely incredible. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Magnificent place worth every penny (not cheap!) for a special occasion.

    The food and atmosphere were amazing! I first visited this restaurant as part of a school trip in high school but we only went for hot chocolate and to talk about the history. I waited 10 years to be able to come back and have a meal, it was definitely worth the wait. By far one of my favorite dining experiences, the staff were friendly and the food was phenomenal.

    During our 46th Wedding Anniversary visit to Paris, my wife and I enjoyed meals in 4 highly rated Paris restaurants and La Closerie des Lilas was the very best of the lot! From the warm greeting, to the impeccable service rendered by Mark and Francois to the superb meal preparation and the genial atmosphere accompanied by live piano, it was a dinner we will fondly remember and look forward to repeating as soon as we can. This restaurant, that enjoys a history unparalleled by any other of Parisians' numerous excellent restaurants is well worth seeking out!

BELLE CARTE – Des huîtres prestigieuses, des grands classiques tels que le filet de bœuf Hemingway, flambé à votre table ou des quenelles de brochet aux écrevisses, on ne se lasse pas. Mais il y a aussi les créations de saison du chef. Les générations se succèdent, la tradition des Arts perdure.
