This is one of those iconic Parisian restaurants that you have to experience once. I'm glad I did: the atmosphere and the service was exceptional throughout. But for the price, there are many restaurants with finer food. Not sure that I'd return.

Yes, there is a bar. On their website it says the restaurant is closed Sundays and Mondays, and for lunch (except for groups of 40 or more). So, I’m presuming no breakfast, lunch, nor brunch.

I do not think the one I utilized was. I'd ask the restaurant as there may have been another option. They were very helpful in communications prior to visiting.

I went there on Bastille Day and it was smart casual. I wore a dress and my husband a jacket with no tie. But we saw other costumers more casual.
