As always, we had not just wonderful food and wine, but a wonderful overall experience. We've already booked our next lunch there. The ambience, the service and the cuisine make it one of our two favorite restaurants in the world when we wish to dine,...rather than just eat. We have many other favorite places for whatever mood we happen to be in, but for a romantic environment and a great dining experience, this is a must. Like our other favorite, we are still puzzled by the single Michelin star since others that have more stars that we've dined in, don't come close to the overall experience we have here.More

I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for many many years and have the experience of the canard presse. To be honest it was not all disappointing. We got the best table in the restaurant ( at least in our opinion ) The...second service of the duck was perfect The lady sommelier chose a very good red wine BUT From the beginning the waiters seemed as if there were / is a second service coming that evening and rushed us to order. Instead of looking from a distance the waiter came on frequent occasions sort of disturbing us. Bread crumbs on the table was not, until the very end removed from the table The first serving of "extras" was incredible dry and boring. The whole atmosphere of the duck being pressed in front of you was not there. In my opinion the most important part of the "show". I have been to at least a dozen of Michelin restaurants around the world and must say that "The Tour" has to step up the game to get stars. We left with an empty feeling both in our minds and in our stomach ( even the lady complained ) because where did the rest of the duck go !More

I was at La Tour d'Argent in late September 2021 for lunch, with a good friend of mine, Everything, from the courtesy of the waiters to the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the superior quality of the food, made us feel like we were in...heaven. We were even given a table with a view of the river, as I had asked! It's an expensive place, undoubtedly, but the experience is worth every Euro.More

Everything was just perfect ! The food (6 dishes menu) was so fine, the view so breathtaking, the service so pleasant and the overall experience so impressive. It was my husband’s birthday and I will for sure book it for next year again!

One of the best meals my husband and I have had in 40 years of marriage. We dined here last week and are still spending of the experience. Our arrival was greeted by the pleasant doorman. We were taken up to the restaurant by elevator...and met by the Maitre’d, who sat us at a window side table, which was beautifully set. We enjoyed small nibbles with glasses of champagne which set the tone for the evening. The wine list as others have mentioned, is massive. I am in the wine business but deferred to the (native Boston!) sommelier’s suggestion of a Malbec to accompany the restaurant’s signature duck duo preparation (which was done table side). This was after a second amuse Bouche of zucchini flowers and appetizers of crab and foie gras. The first course is duck breast, and soufflé potatoes, served with the famous duck blood sauce. The second preparation is the leg accompanied by sausage served in pastry cups. As expected, all was exceptional. During the meal the owner stopped by our table to inquire if we were enjoying our evening - and we certainly were! Too bad our numbered duck card arrived too late for him to sign for us . We ended our meal with dessert (no room for the wonderful looking cheese cart course!), a chocolate creation for myself and the famous baba with champagne and berries for my husband. These were served with coffee and tea and more little dessert bites. Of course, this all comes at a premium ($900 US) but we felt it was worth every penny.More

I grew up in Paris so this restaurant always held a special place in my imagination. We visited last Sunday for lunch where I invited with my parents, my partner and a close friend of ours and we had such a wonderful time. The dishes,...the service, the wine, the view... Everything contributed to making this visit truly unforgettable. Big thank you to the team who were looking after us it was perfect!More

Firstly sending this to monsieur or madame does not seem very sincere. Seems you do not know. This time wine waiting staff appear to be a little less enthusiastic & lacking in knowledge compared to previously. Our main course was a little late to arrive...this time for the first time. Otherwise everything was perfect & we were very happy again with our visit. I saw your menu in English on the internet. I find the mistakes I have previously pointed out to you. Also it’s in American English. Should we be speaking Canadian French? We will be very happy to return in August.More

La Tour D'Argent is the Grande Dame of French restaurants. It was a great restaurant and then fell into decline. It is said that the fil; “Ratatouille,” is based on La Tour D'Argent. I ate there with my family and was not disappointed. I had...the very best fois gras that I ever had and the best chocolate mousse. We ordered the duck which was splendid. The mille fois was spectacular. You can see a video of the meal on my YouTube channel: Art and Travel by Dave.More
