All My family wanted was a great French meal at a typical Parisian bistrot. The menu looks amazing but the food is absolutely not what was expected. We've had beef bourguignon and confit de canard better in countries far from France. All soggy and tasting...More

I had read this restaurant had the best duck confit in Paris. If so, then duck confit in Michigan is far superior! We had only two dishes of note: the beef bourguignon and the grand marnier soufflé.(which was superb, worth a trip just for that!)....More

We tried their beef bourguignon, pigeon, foie gras, and souffle and they were all very delicious. The pigeon meat was cooked a bit more on the rare side and that I'm not used to so I didn't like that part as much. Everything else was...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
