    The food was incredible, never thought I would love escargots! However the service was lacking in the communication hand off between servers. We had the wine paring but we’re not served the last glass. Better communication between the servers is needed to ensure smooth transitions.

    I’ve been to Substsnce a few times but JD not been there for a while. It was a surprise that you have to go for menú degustación (previously it was a la carte). We went for the 7course menu with wine paring. Overall this continues being a great restaurant with a good ambience and food but yesterday we were somewhat disappointed with the menu (some of the food had flavors that were too intense, e.g. too much lemon flavor that ‘killed’ any litter ingredient). In addition, the wine serving was quite poor - you are warned that they serve 6 half glasses (and yes, these are really half , as in very little, wine serving) for 70€. Even for a restaurant with 1 Michelin star in Paris, this is expensive. As to the wines, they make great paring, but the service must improve (forgetting to change glasses, a dirty glass , forgetting to serve one red wine…) all in all this is A great place but yesterday just not as good as in the many other times we had come to Substance

    Incredibly innovative menu. Everything was well prepared and different from any other meal we have had in France. We had the 5 course tasting lunch and every course was extraordinary and unusual. I would highly recommend Substance to gourmands who want a meal that goes beyond the ordinary.

    First of all, the atmosphere of the restaurant is really modern, passionate and warm. Beside, the sommelier is professional and introduce each wine in detail. Of course, the waiter and waitress are pretty nice to provide excellent service to us. As for food, it’s extremely creative and delicious without doubts, l greatly like one of the dishes, it reach perfect balance in harmony with each flavor.

    Omg. We snuck in here on a last-minute cancellation. The best meal I’ve had in years. The degustation menu of nine courses was unreal. The pair of wines were fantastic. The service was unparalleled. I want to fly back just to eat here again.

    Vi er et gift par som bestilte lunch. Vi valgte 5 retters smakmeny med 1 vinpakke til min mann. Jeg har glutenintoleranse og maten var tilpasset til det. Jeg fikk nybakt varmt glutenfri brød som smakte vidunderlig og likedan alt maten som vi fikk servert. Servicen var upåklagelig, servitører var oppmerksomme og hyggelige . Retter og vin tilsvarende maten ble introdusert på en hyggelig måte. Vi var veldig fornøyd med alt og kan anbefale gjerne den restorang.

    Grab a seat at the bar and watch this kitchen work like clockwork. Executive Chef Mattias has a great group working this eclectic and inspired menu. Choose the degustation menu and be delighted- the sommelier knows his pairings well and is patient and informative. The meal was memorable and I look forward to coming again next time in Paris. Come, enjoy, marvel, relish, and appreciate this fine young talented team.
