Outstanding food, but a bit slow on the service (took 3 hours for a full dinner with starters, mains, cheese, and dessert).

Staff was very courteous and funny while still being very professional and informative. Had a blast with all the little extras they gave us and did a wonderful job with the descriptions of all the cheeses on the cheese tray. Due to the staff at the restaurant, we may stay at the hotel next time. Great place!

I can’t say enough about my meal this evening at Chateau du Pray. Not only has it been the best meal of all the ones I’ve had these two weeks in Paris, the staff at this restaurant by far has been the most amazing. Each staff person was cheery, kind, and attentive. The summer tasting menu that we had was multi-layered in taste and light. Particularly the dory fish course and apricot granache course! It was also a special dinner for us because it was my partner’s birthday. So they were kind enough to order flowers for the table for him, as well as put a birthday candle in the dessert. Last, if you’re looking for a restaurant that has ambiance and character, this is the one for you. Set back in part of what looks like a troglodyte cave, yet with tables with white tablecloths and a lovely terrace view, Chateau du Pray has everything you could look for in a nice dining establishment. My thabks to them for making tonight simply merveilleuse!

Amazing gastronomic experience. We took the sampling menu, and never thought back. Each course was beautifully plated, tasted divine and the servers were super knowledgeable and on point. Would definitely come back and bring friends.

I ordered the foie gras as a starter... very ho hum and nothing spectacular. It was truly just a sliced slab of foie gras on a plate, with no accompaniments or presentation. I ordered the fish as my main course. It was cooked in some sort of leaf and presented table side for the "unwrapping." It was flavorless, lacked any seasoning and was cold. This restaurant is certainly not worth the money and absolutely NOT deserving of a Michelin star. It was terrible and I would never recommend it to anyone!

Everything about our experience was wonderful. Very creative tastes and textures, with excellent wine pairings/suggestions. We had the prix fixe meal that was sprinkled with delicious extras and just-right sized portions. We were given the choice of various cheeses, again with good recommendations. Staff was very professional and friendly. The dining room had a classic look, not ornate, but sleek and comfortable. Value was excellent. The waiter made a point of showing us how we could take a walk after our meal on the chateau's grounds.

The waitstaff was really hectic. They were literally running around the dinning room. Even had a couple of collisions while they were hurrying. The food was very good but hard to enjoy while the staff stands staring at you one minute and then is running around the next. They could have been a lot better about explaining the courses of food. There was a definite language barrier as English was hard for them.

The dining room of Chateau du Pray was unique, partly constructed into a natural rock shelter. Very pretty room with enthusiastic young staff. They did seem, however, to be a little disorganized. The service was somewhat uneven, therefore. The presentation of the food and creations were lovely, and sophisticated. A terrine of foie Gras was excellent. My husband ordered the main course of blue lobster as his appetizer, and there was a misunderstanding. The waiter thought that he wanted the starter of the lobster. We felt badly to send the dish back, but they did take it away with apologies and brought the other preparation fairly quickly. It is definitely worth coming to dine at Chateau de Pray for the unique dishes, the atmosphere and the friendly staff.

The food was good, but disappointing after our prior Michelin 1-star experience at Pur in Paris - it was not in the same league. The service was definitely off - there were long waits for someone to take our order, or offer a wine menu, or a somellier to discuss wine pairings. I rarely refuse a wine unless obviously bad, as I'm curious to see how they pair with the intended dish, but I ended up sending back 2 glasses that evening. Overall, I'm surprised this restaurant has a Michelin star.
