This prominent hotel on the rue de Rivoli for some reason decided to set up the valet at a seperate entrance - not easy if you don't know and harder when the valet is not there. We finally got our car taken care of, walked around to the entrance'and found no indication of where the restaurant was. Having found the... More

The food is good and very reasonably priced which is especially surprising considering it's location in the Westin which is located at the corner of Rue de Rivoli and Rue de Castiglione..

Only at breakfast here. For a hotel buffet breakfast it was excelled. Very good quality and good selection. Getting in and out in the morning was easy. Staff could be more attentive though with coffee refills and coming back by to check in.

The restaurant at the Westin Vendome is a culinary delight. This review is for the breakfast buffet. Although $50 (tax + tip included) per person a steep for most Americans, I recommend eating breakfast here at least once if you're visiting the Louvre after breakfast. This isn't a place where you come to eat like you're at a buffet (although... More

As a rule I don't usually eat in hotels. I figure I can order room service or go out to eat. We ate a half dozen breakfasts here. A really first quality buffet. Nice staff and very accommodating of all our needs. The dinner was very good. Spendy as you would expect but put together properly and served impeccably.

Whilst staying at the Westin Vendome in Paris we opted for this restaurant on the first night as we had had a long day. The service was very good and the food excellent. It is a little dark but very good ambiance all the same.
