The first time I came here was 1969 and I was 12. For the last 50 years I have been coming. I love the place for the memories I have and for the excellent food it always had. It is still very good, but I...miss some old dishes like the Turban d’Agneau à l’Ancienne.More

We had an excellent dinner with five persons in this special restaurant. The food (both meat and fish) is of a superb quality and an army of waiters is present to offer you a perfect service. Prices are obviously ver high. Excellent evening.

We dined here for lunch and found the lunch menu very affordable, although limited in options. The meal was very good, although the service was average. The children’s menu was very well presented and the highlight of the day.

I do not know what to say it wasn’t good from beginning to the end... Bar carpaccio with slice so thick you won’t imagine, no style and it didn’t put on high level side the fish like expected. Then, a traditional beef tartare presented as...the best never made and result was so so. And, above all what was the most outrageous was the french fries are not homemade !!! More Mcain type reported by the waiter when we asked. I won’t ever back to this restaurant.More

My wife and I invited for dinner a friend who happened to be in Paris at the same time we were. This friend staying in an hotel nearby we decided to make a reservation at the Relais Plaza. We enjoyed the place a couple of...times a year before its had been renovated. The decor is a mix of Art Deco and modern of the 60’s. The restaurant was fairly busy and noisy; Adding to the noise, a piano played too much loudly made conversation extremely difficult without raising our voices. As cocktails we ordered Champagne Moët rosé and decided to stay with the Moët for the dinner. My wife and our friend ordered Foie Gras frais as an appetizer and I choose the Pâté en Croûte. The portions of the foie gras were ridiculously small and not very tasty. My Pâté en Croûte was hard with a thin croûte and without any taste and consistency of a pâté. Main course for my wife and friend was a kind of pochouze made with 3 different types of fishes: sole, sea bass and turbot with small vegetables. This dish was decent and well done, For my part I had calf liver with purée. I ordered the liver rare and it came pink, way too much cooked for my taste. Here again the portion was way too small (for the price paid). For dessert we ordered the Millefeuille. I like the millefeuille made the traditional way with multiple layers, with a thin sugar coated top and filled with crême patissière. It came with 3 layers only, filled with a soft exotic crême which had no resemblance with the crême patissière. On the other hand the consistency of the pâte feuilletée was “at it should be”. Service was not the way you expect to be in such a place. Waiters removing your “dirty plate” before everybody else had finished and interfering while you are conversing. The price paid was almost as high as the price for a suite in the hotel. Overall you pay for the location and multiple staff.More

After reading the reviews on Tripadviser (most positive) we made a reservation at Relais Plaza and looked forward to a great meal. What a disappointment. I am a Chef myself and the food was not worth the money at all. We eat lunch at a...small brasserie for 1/3 of the money and the food was really really good. We had a reservation at 7:30pm and was the only ones in the restaurant with 7 waiters, not very cozy. The choices of the menu card was very limited, not the one we saw on their website. I ordered two starters. The first one Seared sea scallops, baby leek, roseval potato and truffled vinaigrette. It was tasteless, like eating a raw fish with absolutely no flavour. The second one Heart of smoked Scottish Label Rouge salmon, potato waffle, pimiento del piquillo hummus. The combination of rich smoked salmon, sweet waffles and hummus, is not very appealing and tasty. What a shame to use such good smoked salmon with the other two ingredients. I took two bites and send it out. My husband got Grilled sirloin steak, Béarnaise sauce, chunky potatoes for € 48. Not worth the money. The atmosphere in the restaurant was snobby. After we finished the waiter came by and asked why we did not eat up. I told him that I am a Chef myself and he did not want to hear more, he just left.More

I am in love with this place! Excellent food, service, management, live piano music, wine list and small surprises. Probably the best Baba au rum in Paris. Thank you all for the wonderful evening and au revoir!

We dined in this gem last week and had an amazing dinner. Of course, the setting is spectacular, and the host, Mr. Kuchler, is so welcoming.
