This is a small restaurant and the decor is unprepossessing including rather basic seating. Service is cold,distant and borderline unpleasant. Fortunately the food redeems the place. My mackerel appetizer was quite good. So was the lamb that followed. However I am told the sauce on the tuna was too sweet and the fish was undercooked. Average wine.

The food was great and totally worth the price. However, it is not correctly marked in tripadvisor as some other reviewers have pointed out, which could lead to some awkward situations if you really were on a budget. If you do decide to go there, their foie grass is very nice for an entree, and the pork feet was excellent... More

Le 122 is both a friendly neighborhood place and a place to have a romantic, special meal. Service is friendly and knowledgeable and translated the menu for us. The server/owner recommended a wine (St. Joseph Vieilles Vigne - Guy Farge) that was honestly the best wine either of us has ever had, and the price was quite reasonable. I had... More

Great menu and very nice desserts. Try the kalamasi sorbet! The place itself is very nice and cosy. Great for business or for romantic dinners

We had a memorable meal in a sleek and lovely room. Staff were gracious and attentive, translating and describing each offering on the menu. The chef is truly talented; everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. This was our best meal in Paris.

The menu offered a lovely selection of dishes which we enjoyed so much that we returned for a second evening. The food was beautifully prepared and of a consistant high standard across all the dishes we... More

Went here on spec because we were staying in the area. The short (6 choices per course) menu has good variety. Ingredients are of the highest quality and tastes are cleverly balanced with the inclusion of beautifully prepared vegetable elements. Starters of cured salmon and an excellent andouilette with figs were preceded by amuses vouches of tapenade and an intense... More

We just had our second dinner at Le 122, and we love it. The food is exquisite, elegant and beautifully presented. The crispy gambas (shrimp) is wonderful. Last time we had wonderful pork and veal, this time we both had fish, all excellent. We will come here on any future trips.
