    The meal was for our anniversary. They looked after us so well. The night we were there, they had just been awarded a Michelin Star... well deserved. Whilst I wasn't keen on the texture of the duck on my starter, the rest was divine and beautifully presented.

    Welcoming. Attention to detail. Welcoming. Attention to detail. And meticulously prepared and very delicious food. The service was very attentive, friendly and accommodating. Great fun to receive a lot of extras (all the guests did too). The food was so accurate, layered and tasty that you need to stop and think a bit. Chapeau!

    My wife and I had dinner here tonight as we celebrated her birthday. The greeting was warm and friendly. Frankly, we cannot remember having a better meal. The ambiance and decor are elegant yet welcoming. The service was excellent. We treated ourselves to a great bottle of Cote Roti. We enjoyed the scallops and fois gras as entrees, and the cod for our main plates. Surrounding our courses, the chef sent us some small tastes. And desert topped it all off. One could easily pay twice the price without matching the quality of this restaurant. We shall return.

    The foods were actually delicious, but the problem is it the portions are just way too big. Half the amount and the meal would have been much more pleasurable. It might seem counterintuitive, especially in this “supersize me” era, but the slab of foie gras and the piece of sweet bread were both excessively big. Of course, it’s up to the consumer to leave it on the plate, and we did leave some behind, but it was nonetheless excessive to the point of turning an excellent dish into just very good. The same can also be said for the chef’s signature crab appetizer. Again, it is delicious, but the portion is way too much for an individual to consume. I understand that the chef aspires for a Michelin star, and having eaten at many of these, including a number of 3-starred ones,my advice to the chef would be to reduce his plate sizes.

    Le Sergent Recruteur

    Dear Sir, Thanks for your comment. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your time at the Sergent Recruteur. Regarding the amount of each meal, the Chef and the intire team is highly focused on reduce as much as they can the food waste rate. We can ensure you that more than 95% of the plates come back empty in the kitchen after our clients enjoyes their meal. So we can conclude every day that the amount is well calculated. Please let us know next time that you'd rather eating really small portions. We wish you a very happy year end. Alain Pegouret and his team

    We were visiting Paris and went to Le Sergent Recruteur to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was a great experience! The atmosphere had a nice, minimal elegant feel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating; we didn't speak much French, but they described the menu to us. Plus the food was exquisite and creative in presentation. Highly recommend!

    This restaurant was superb for our last night in Paris. The chef is inventive and all the dishes are expertly executed and beautifully presented. Watching him at work is a joy! The staff are attentive, knowledgeable and engaging. We could not fault the experience and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a gourmet experience that is way out of the ordinary. Deserving of a Michelin star rating!

    O M G! This was a terrific dining experience! The restaurant is air-conditioned, I had champagne which was delicious and my husband had a beer before dinner. We were given an amuse Bouche with our drinks, and then another one just for the heck of it! Everything was absolutely delicious. The staff was super kind! I was practicing my French and my husband doesn’t speak French so they spoke English with him and spoke French slowly with me! Our lunch starters and main dishes were fantastic! I told the sommelier, a very nice woman, that I would like a glass of dry white wine. She brought me one of the best glasses of wine I’ve ever had! I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Dear Barbara, We are glad you spent such a nice time with us ! We try to keep the reputation of the French Cuisine as best as we can... We wish you nice stay in Paris Alain Pégouret and the Sergent Recruteur team

    At first I slightly struggled to find a dish to order but eventually decided on the tuna and it was amazing. Beautifully presented on the plate. Every detail of the meal was beyond our wildest dreams. Can’t recommend it highly enough

    Le Sergent Recruteur

    Dear Jenny, We are pleased to read those nice details. The marinated skipjack tuna inspired the Chef soo much (since it's not such a common dish) that we are happy to read you appreciated it. We look forward to welcome you again The Sergent Recruteur team
