I was invited by my good friends for my bday in this restaurant. It was great, great meal, lots of different taste, definitely a cooking style that I've never tried before and I liked it very much! Taste was full of surprise but in a very good way. One of my friend has LOTS of diet restrictions and they were... More

This place is a very nice looking restaurant with impeccable service, very professional staff, and an impressive selection of food. Unlike the regular tasting menu, the food comes out in batches based on theme. So if that dish is a particular fish for example, each of the two to five little dishes will feature that fish or a particular extraction... More

Outstanding!! Totally deserve in the list of top 10 restaurants in Paris. Well presented, the mini sized course comes teasing your taste buds and left you wonder how the heck they came up with this creative idea and ingredients. All the dishes are very rich in flavor, left you feeling full, not to mention well presented. Do book in advance... More

We ate here because we had eaten at Pierre in Hong Kong and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant and wine cellar are really nice. Some tables particularly up top seem a little to close together. The service was very good easily 3 star. The food however was not that great. I had a lamb dish which was uninspired and... More

After twice eating lunch at Pierre Gagnaire's this was my first dinner experience. We took the tasting menu with accompanying wines. From start to finish it was culinary brilliance with artistic flair. We were delighted to be greeted by the chef himself before our meal and from there on in the curve of delight went up and up. A fantastic... More

Note - I visited here in April 2015 Looking at the menu online, I was somewhat concerned that there was no prices associated with the dishes. A sure sign we couldn't afford it. When we arrived we were greeted by the staff and offered some water as we were led to our table. We had legged it down the Champs-Élysées... More

Went here with lunch. Each course (and the 2 amuses bouches) had between 4 and 6 different plates. Some plates very a little bland but most tasted very good.

The service, atmosphere and food were easily worthy of its Michelin star. Our waiter and sommelier were very accommodating, and this ended up making our night. Absolutely incredible food with excellent service and a true delight for anyone who appreciates gourmet food at its best! Every course was a picture on a plate and the flavours were amazing. Simply the... More
