Really great offerings and they have a menu of allergens upon request. Had the Beef and Fries and it was amazing, as were the escargot! Special shoutout to the staff, who were so kind and accommodating and put up with our terrible French!

What can I say? We had one of the most memorable dinners to tonight. The dishes with beef and salmon were delicious. They DID provide a chart of the allergens present in the menu. Our server was very kind and personable and put up with our poor attempt at French. Gluten free starters, main courses, and several desserts!

We will be back!

Super nice to find real French food that I can eat! Very charming place and had a seat outside :) I feel good about this spot, and the waiter reassured me things would be ok.

Review is only to highlight how busy they are; came a little before 1 pm and was told they have no seating for a few hours because we didn’t have a reservation :( Had to find another place to eat, which was a total bummer.

I had the best meal here. We walked up before it got busy and sat outside. The service was incredible, the food was so good and I felt really confident that I wouldn't get sick. I am a very sensitive Celiac & this was a total win. I had the fresh salad, the beef bourginon and creme brulee. What a highlight. Highly recommend.

Perfect French bistro for my GF husband! Wonderful staff, great fresh food! Don’t miss it hidden in a back courtyard! Nice and quiet off the crazy shopping boulevards.

Little hidden gem near Palais Garnier! The waiter reviewed the menu with me after I told him I had Celiac, and the food did not disappoint! I had a delicious eggplant dish as a starter and chicken with potatoes and a salad. Th wine pairing he suggested was on point, too. I'll definitely head back for the escargot if I have a craving!!

What can I say, this place was a delight. The staff was so kind and the owner came over to walk through the whole menu, most of which can be made gluten free. I had the snails, pork, and crème brûlée. The restaurant has a great French feel. Make sure to make a reservation, especially at lunch time!

An authentic old school Parisien bistro, close to the Palais Garnier Opera and Galleries Lafayette Haussmann...

This unassuming venue oozes character and backs it up with awesome food.

The maître d took time (in English) to knowledgeably explain the GF options (~80 per cent of the menu is or could be made GF). Care was take to avoid cross-contamination, but given it is not a GF kitchen, cross-contamination is (as alway) possible.

Wonderful food, friendly staff and a great vibe!

Oh, and very reasonably priced!!!!
