It's very hard to explain the appeal of L'Ambroisie. On the one hand, it's not a restaurant that you can just go to once to really enjoy. You have to return again and again and again before you begin to appreciate the subtle nuances of...More

A beautiful and comfortable restaurant. We passed by at lunch time with no reservation and the staff were nice to accommodate us. A truly classy restaurant with highly qualified staff. We had the Langoustines, the Arlequine vegetale, and shared a Volaille de Bresse. We finished...More

We were a party of four dining in August 2017. The location is spectacular and the dining room sumptuous if somewhat (French) old fashioned. The staff were cordial ad correct but helpful. The food was very good but, save for the langoustine dish, not exceptional....More

We were very excited to have dinner at this restaurant while in Paris, but unfortunately were disappointed by the overall experience given the ratings and price for the meal. One expects more from a 3 star Michelin rated restaurant in Paris. To be fair, the...More

Personal opinion is a funny thing. Can 7 people really think L'Ambroisie is terrible? Very difficult to understand. Our experience could not have been more positive. The setting is magnificent in an 18th-century mansion on the Place des Vosges. Furniture, table linen, cutlery and crockery...More

Finally, got to L'Ambroisie and, well, the previous reviews probably capture an accurate picture if you read between the lines. Yes, it is supremely French and independently run. So, with that, the debatable negatives... They are probably not as inclusive to international customers as some...More

My husband and i visit Paris every spring/ summer and have frequented six of the city's ten 3 michelin star restaurants in Paris thus far. L'Ambroisie was by far our least favorite *** -- leaving much to be desired. In our opinion, the food didn't...More

Beautiful restaurant on what is arguably the most beautiful square in Paris. Two lovely "salons" followed by a third one where you don't want to be. Service is ultra classic and a bit stiff to begin. Eggs with asparagus and caviar. A combination that can't...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

I think it's pretty difficult to get a reservation without knowing someone quite well connected (like your PA or a concierge) but I would call them straight away now. Hopefully it's not full yet for your date. I'm sorry I... More
