Well, If you take out the fact that we had to wait in a large queue out in the cold, all else was very nice. Nice hot chocolate , nice dessert despite the overpricing. Very nice and helpful waitress also. I would love to taste...the other dessert too, but this time only for take away.More

After about 1 hour queue in the cold, I was so excited to sample the food. I ordered the breakfast set; consisting egg benedict with avocado, mini croissants and bread, hot drink, fruit juice and french toast. One of the egg benedict, unfortunately was overcooked....Though when pointed out, the wait staff immediate response was to give complimentary macarons (too bad the nice gesture was overturned by request of a tip when I was paying for my bill; tip to my knowledge is not customary in France - perhaps I looked too touristy to the wait staff?) The butter croissant has a sweet hint. The french toast was good; crisp outside and very soft inside, not too sweet despite the caramel sauce and sugar. I experienced the hype though I would not queue that long again as for me the food was just ok and the service could be improvedMore

Angelinas is such a wonderful treat. I am sure to book a table whenever I visit Paris as the food, service and ambience are all excellent. The eggs Benedict is the best I have ever had and you cannot come here without trying the hot...chocolate. Great place, the very long queue outside shows how popular it is. Would recommend booking a table for brunchMore

I cannot give a 6 star or I would. The experience was fabulous. The greeting by Mr Pascal was phenomenal. He loves his job and his customers. The hot chocolate and the mont blanc dessert were unbelievable but especially enjoyable thanks to mr Pascal whom...I watched check on his customers and us. Great experience!More

The ultimate Parisienne patisserie experience. Fresh whipped cream with Famous Angelina Hot Chocolate! The cream is beaten so well that it literally "stands" on the hot chocolate! Chestnut cream for the freshly made croissants. F Fresh squeezed orange juice. We waited a short time for...a table and it was worth every second. Every delectable bite melts in your mouth. NYC has recently opened a division at Bryant Park and I couldn't be happier!!!!! This patisserie brings me sheer joy!!!!More

There is always a line in front of this place, but the wait is worth it - just amazing Mille Feuilleton, a super thick hot chocolate (delicious), an only semi-sweet apple tatin…and of course the classical “montblanc”(Creme, meringue, nut cream). Service a little rushed, prices...steep, but well…you are in Paris…if you don’t want to wait in line you can pick up anything you want and I eat it in the gardens in front of the Louvre…More

My wife and I ate lunch at Angelina when we were recently in Paris, and it was totally disappointing. It’s a touristy, crowded restaurant with attached store that feels like an amusement-park version of a Parisian restaurant. On top of that, it offers really mediocre...service and food that’s not good enough to make up for its faults. I was disappointed that we wasted one of our meals in Paris on Angelina. We knew were going to be in the general area of the restaurant one afternoon, so after reading several glowing reviews, often naming Angelina as a must-visit for a casual meal in Paris, I made a reservation. The things I was reading were all about how it’s so gorgeous, so classically Parisian-looking, and just has such good food and desserts. I can see that if it’s your first time in Paris, Angelina would feel like the classic idea of Paris that you may have in your mind, with its ornate dining room and menu of French basics with a focus on dessert. However, for anyone who’s been to Paris before and doesn’t want to be sitting in a room full of only Americans on vacation (even if you are one too), there are so many better ways to have Parisian experiences. Reservations aren’t required, although the walk-in line can get long, so it’s best to have a reservation. When we arrived, there was a line of people snaking out the door and down the sidewalk waiting to get in. Signs on the door indicated that people waiting for the restaurant should stay in that line, while people going to the store could go right in. What the signage neglected to do was differentiate between restaurant guests with and without reservations. After waiting for at least 10 minutes before getting far enough inside to speak to an employee who came to check our health passes, we mentioned that we had a reservation. At that point, we were told we didn’t need to wait in the line, which was for walk-ins, and that we could skip right to the front to be seated immediately. If you have a reservation, just go right inside as if you’re there for the store, but check in directly at the host stand. We were seated in the front dining room, which is generally nice-looking and ornate, but it felt a bit dirty, and it’s very crowded with tables close together. Our server came over very quickly to get our order, and she wasn’t the friendliest by any means. The service was very perfunctory and impersonal, and especially at the beginning, it felt rushed. It felt like they basically wanted us to sit down, place an order immediately, and get out quickly. I started with the famous Angelina hot chocolate as a drink, and this was definitely the best thing I had there. The hot chocolate is rich, thick, and decadent. It’s sweet and lovely, and can definitely be a dessert on its own. However, I also found it to be a standard thick-style hot chocolate that you can get in many places in the world. I’ve seen a lot of people act as though this is something you have to come to Paris and Angelina to get, but I’ve had similar hot chocolates at many places for less than 8 euros per cup. I really enjoyed it, but I don’t think it’s quite as unique as some people say. Food-wise, I got a club sandwich, while my wife got a croque monsieur. The food came out extremely quickly, in the way that only happens at places where the food is mass-produced. I had requested my sandwich with no egg, but it came with egg, which was frustrating. They were just rushing to get anything out to the table without making sure it was correct. When I sent the sandwich back, it actually took much longer to get one without egg. This messed up the entire flow of our meal, since I told my wife to eat her hot croque monsieur while waiting, but by the time my replacement came, she was done. The club sandwich was actually pretty good, so I guess it was somewhat worth the wait. My wife deemed the croque monsieur to be nothing special. For dessert, we wanted to try a couple of things form their pastry counter, so my wife ordered a chocolate éclair and I went for the millefeuille. I thought the éclair was below expectations. It was too cold and hard, obviously right out of the fridge and/or freezer before that. It just didn’t have the fresh taste I had expected. My wife liked it though, so maybe I was just being overcritical. I thought the millefeuille was much better. It was light with a really nice vanilla cream. Although still indulgent, it was a nice counterpoint to the super thick and sweet hot chocolate that I had earlier. It took a while to get our check at the end. Our server had changed right before dessert, I assume due to breaks and/or shift change, so we weren’t 100% sure who our server was, and service just sort of stopped at the end with no one coming back to our table after dessert was delivered. There was just no easy way to signal that we needed anything, which was frustrating. Service had been pushy and rushed to start, and now that we wanted to get going, servers were nowhere to be found. Overall, our lunch at Angelina was a waste of time. It wasn’t even that everything we had was bad, because it really wasn’t. The hot chocolate is nice, the desserts are generally good, and I felt that my sandwich was fine. However, the place just feels like a factory for tourists, so it doesn’t feel authentically French at all, and the service isn’t very good. Service was totally disinterested, with an inconsistent pace and mistakes made that were easy to avoid. I wouldn’t waste time eating a meal here. I’d be more likely to just stop into the shop in the front to get something to-go, since their sweet products are good, but their ability to translate it into a restaurant is poor.More

1h in the queue and we got a table in an HORRIBLE room (almost in front of the kitchen). Meanwhile, plenty of tables available in the second floor (which, for no reason, was closed). Would never recommend - not worth the queue!

Living in Paris, I do not go to Angelina, too touristy. I did stop there today to pick up some croissants and pains au chocolat. What a deception. Heavy, not flaky, really taste of croissants that were taken out the freezer and put in the...oven. Is this French luxury? In addition, poor service. I wanted to purchase 1 mini-pain au chocolat to eat immediately, before getting back to the apartment for the others. They told me "Not Possible, must buy 3". What a joke, so much for customer experience... Angelina is NOT luxury.More
