The staff here were very friendly, welcoming and helpful, suggesting things on the menu when I asked them. The food was beautifully presented and prepared and was delicious. As asparagus was in season during my trip, I have been ordering a lot of it and it was excellent here with a delicious mousseline. I ordered their famous chocolate tart for... More

Excellent meal with the right balance between innovation and tradition - for instance I was amazed by the brilliant mix of curry and asparagus. Great deal for lunch on weekdays.

Michelin and Frommer and I agree- this restaurant is not to be missed on any trip to Paris. Michelin-star haute cuisine that is always reliable and great and enjoyable, with excellent service and reasonable prices- go!

Average for a 1 star place. Some courses better than others Fois gras was good but boiled egg with toast and crumb was poor and very average! Fish course was nice but quail for the meat course was very small and skin not rendered. Can think of better ways to spend 261 euro!!! Especially since we were charged for a... More

I really enjoyed the lunch I had in this restaurant. Located in the rue Saint Dominique in the 7th Quarter. The staff was very warm and welcoming. The decor is modern minimalist. The service was impeccable. I chose the fixe menu at a reasonable price of $45.00 for a one star Michelin restaurant. The foie gras was excellent. The scallops... More

Went there shortly after getting engaged. Had previously told them of this and there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us. The service matched the equally exquisite food. Was a marvelous experience for both of us and everything was amazing in taste, delivery and setting.

We dined here to celebrate my Boyfriend's bday. So we chose the " Dégustation " menu whereas there's 7 services (wine not encluded) which is a bummer. Expect to be pricey since its a one star restaurant and the food is really amazing good quality especially the foie gras .. it's to die for. So since the wine is not... More

I was looking for a Michelin one star for lunch and was very pleased with this choice. The service was impeccable from the start - very helpful English speaking wait staff.

We dined at Le Violon d'Ingres whilst visiting Paris for a short visit. The food was superb, a great menu that was original without being over complicated. As an example I had the scallop salad to start followed by pigeon and they were both perfectly prepared and presented. The service was also impeccable, friendly and attentive without being intrusive or... More

We had seen that the restaurant offers at lunch a 45 euros three courses menu with a substantial choice. We booked a table and asked for one far from the door. We got a very nice rather quiet table and were pleasantly surprised that our menu included a cup of champaign. My main course was scallops, 4 medium size ones,... More
