They are certainly busy! Arrived at 1 pm and was told they didn’t have seating for several hours, and the place was packed. Left a review (just so others can plan ahead and get a reservation) and spent time pouring over this app to find another place to eat.

The owner (?) saw us sitting on the nearby curb for about 15 min trying to decide where else to go, and maybe thought we were going to wait for a table and squeezed us in. When I asked about GF options, he laughed and said they made their food to be good, and it was mostly naturally GF, and somehow became a hot spot, so good job guys!!

The food was delicious, I’m so glad we stayed! Definitely make sure to plan ahead if you want to come, and trust me, you should want to come!

This salad was surprisingly delicious for how simple it looks!
Main: sauce had a cheesy pepper taste; very delicious and a little rich. Potatoes were very whipped; also really good. And the pork chop wasn’t overcooked! Travel buddy who is not GF got the bouf bourgeon, which ^is^ GF, which was the one time during the trip I got to sample his food too! Beef was a little dry for me, but very yummy.
This… was the icing on the cake. So good!

There’s no gluten free marking anywhere, but once I asked they were happy to point out what is safe and it was a lot of options! As others have said the fries were cooked separately which is awesome. I had the salmon salad starter and pork sausage main which came with a cream sauce that they verified would be fine for me. They did appear to omit a decorative sauce I saw on someone else’s plate, but that made me feel like they really took care of my needs.

This place was PACKED on a Monday at lunch with all locals. I wasn’t expecting that day of the week to be busy so I do suggest reservations. We didn’t have it, but I feel we only got lucky to be seated. The price is great and the quality is super high! Everyone loved this meal in my party!

This was a great place to eat. I explained I was gluten and dairy free and they were helpful to help me with menu selections. I had the salmon appetizer and steak dinner (omit sauce) with French fries which were made in a separate fryer and a salad with balsamic dressing. Reservations are required as they were full at dinner time with a sign on the door. My son and husband had the French onion soup which looked amazing and they said it was wonderful. They also enjoyed their dinners which were not gluten or dairy free.

LOVED THIS PLACE! The menu is mostly gluten free, just ask what you can and cannot eat before ordering. The staff was amazing and put lots of attention to my gluten allergy. Service was great, food was great, would totally recommend to anyone.

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!

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.

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!!!!
