    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.

    Food are not really as I expected, oysters really good, breads good, main dishes really bad, fish are not fresh, Wild boar bad too, we have to give up on our main dishes. Will never want to return this restaurant. Nice atmosphere is the only positive that I can said.

    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!

    Billy and the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the evening, which was both our first visit to Paris and our 40th wedding anniversary. The food was excellent, as you would expect, though most of the wines were well out of our price range. However, all of the staff - Billy, young Aki and Morgan and others made the evening lovely. At such a place as La Closerie it would have been easy to be formal and stiff, but they made it relaxed, friendly and enjoyable. Thank you for making it one of the highlights to our first Paris visit. Joseph Coburn

    Food and wine were both excellent and the recommendations from the waiters were spot on. Service was fine at the start but as the night went on we were somewhat ignored, which is my only critique of the night.

    Superb Sunday lunch. Delicious food, beautifully presented by the restaurant’s charming staff. The white asparagus was perfection, beautifully presented with edible flowers. I am Vegetarian and the chef prepared a wonderful vegetable and cereal dish for my main course. My partner is a Hemingway fan and choose the steak ‘Hemingway style’ with Bourbon and mustard which we enjoyed watching the staff prepare and flambé. I finished with the Lilac ice cream which was delicate and served with raspberries and chantilly cream- scrumptious! We enjoyed a Monkey 47 G&T apéritif and rosé Champagne also. This will become one of our regular restaurants when we visit Paris and my family are looking forward to joining us.
