At the beginning I thought it was a Japanese restaurant. What I really liked is the extreme attention to details, excellent service and quiet atmosphere. You can have half main course and try 2 different ones if you want. Everything was absolutely perfect.

This is not a Japanese restaurant as some reviewers write. It does not have a traditional Japanese menu. It is definitely French cuisine with a subtle Japanese influence. We came as a group of 4 and ordered starters, mains and dessert. The great thing about this restaurant is we can have half portions so we all had 2 half portions... More

It's now been nearly 25 years since my husband and I have been eating here, and it has never been less than superb. Each dish is sublime, prepared with reverence for the main ingredients and judicious use of seasoning. Prices are entirely fair, given the fine quality of the food and the work the chef puts into preparing it. Yes,... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of my friend who is a frequent visitor. I felt cozy, finding it and opening its door. A kir royale framboise and a white wine were nice, but a red wine was a bit acidic. Food was wonderful, especially the starters: salad with confit of gizzards and terrine of foie gras. Saint-pierre sauté... More

I think this restaurant puts off some people because of the Japanese staff including the chef but the food is heavenly French with only a single dish claiming Japanese influence. The amuse bouche was a delightful herring melange on toast . We once again started off with a foie gras and a sauternes which is something we cannot be denied... More

One of the strong points of this restaurant is the virtuose handling by the cook of "pâte feuilletée", so his desserts like "Croustade de frangipane" (which we tried) are remarkable, although often neglected as many visitors skip the dessert; at least at lunch, to buy a macaron at the nearby shop of Hermé. Another good feature is the offer of... More

lovely japanese-french fusion restaurant, quiet with attentive staff. every item was terrific and the half-portions meant our children could try a variety of options because so many sounded (and tasted) great. would come back in a heartbeat.

This was my favorite restaurant when I lived in Paris. I returned to this restaurant for lunch when I visited Paris as a tourist, for the first time in fifteen years. I was so delighted that Japanese chef kept up the wonderful taste! The restaurant was filled with local people and I realized that it has been loved by them... More
