    Loved it! Food is super interesting (great tuna tataki in bite size portions with multiple sauces also excellent turbo with 4 different ways to eat carrots). Not inexpensive but worth every cent. Seating in second room - high table but nice and quiet and lovel service.

    About the food nothing much to say, good, inventive and overall very good. About the service: sloppy, they called us saying they didn’t have room at the tables so they sited us at the bar, no problem with that although we had a reservation! The person in charge of the bar had literally too much to do, so no attention was given to us and some hygiene aspects weren’t accomplished like his hands were used to pick up plates, money, cookies for the coffee and everything and weren’t washed or utensils were used. The overall attitude of the staff wasn’t nice as well and the door that was always opening had a cover that didn’t worked very well so we were having cold from time to time, they saw us trying to fix the situation and no questions were asked or help was offered. It’s a pitty that a place that is in a Michellin guide and have such good food don’t pay attention to this kind of details and for sure I won’t be coming back

    I don’t know the server on Feb 10 evening, but I want to recognise him. Thank you for the best service I’ve experienced in any Parisian business in the past year. Friendly, responsive and efficient. ????????

    Best meal we had in Paris! Highly recommend this place. It was delicious and a good value. We will be coming back next time we are in town. It’s a small restaurant so be sure to make reservations.

    Quite expensive for pretentious plates that do correspond to expected quality at this price

    I enjoyed special meal for the lunch of the 31 December. The plats were all with truffe but the place was affordable. The atmosphere of this restaurant is not too 'formal' so it was really comfortable to stay there. The servers are also amiable! It was my second time to go there and this time they presered me a lot.

    I made a reservation online from Japan. I knew it was a reputable restaurant, but it was really a great restaurant. I was with children, but the clerk was kind and the food was not only beautiful, but also very good. This is one of the shops you should definitely visit when you go to Paris.

    I would like to file a complaint against the service for this reservation. I mentioned in my reservation that this was a birthday meal - in fact we were celebrating my fiance's birthday. Once we were seated, we waited 30 minutes for service to give us water and take our orders. I made eye contact with the server with eye glasses several times, but he refused to acknowledge us. I even asked him if we can have water, but he ignored me and walked away before I even finished my question. We finally had enough and got up to get our coats. Again we explained to the other server at the front of the house that we spent the last 30 min being ignored. He said nothing and offered no apologies. I guess this is normal behaviour. To make matters worse, another couple sat down after us at the next table. Not only were they tended to right away, they were eating their starters by the time we decided we finally had enough. The only difference is that they are French, and we are Asian. What conclusion would you draw here? I will say that this experience was among the worst I've ever encountered. I also cannot believe we were given no apologies for the mistreatment. It was incredibly unprofessional and made us feel awful. I hope management will look into this matter and take action.

    Excellent food as always. Service was good but maybe a bit ”mechanical” i.e lacking some passion just out with the nice dishes and get it done.

    The restaurant is small but serve top notch food. A must try lunch set menu where the chef have something special to surprise you. The food tastes so good you just want to have more. I had a great time there. Totally full for the whole day. Despite having to take 90min to walk there due to strike going on (no transport to get there), the whole dinning experience is super worth it. I love the time spent and wouldn't mind going back to eat again when I am there. Highly recommended!!
