For Americans, I sort of think of this restaurant like eating at the first Denny's. You go to say you went and because of some cultural significance, but you don't expect an amazing meal. Adjust your expectations and you'll be fine. Lobster bisque was fine,...sort of average. The omelette was underwhelming, seemingly undercooked and to me fairly tasteless. Service was reasonable. It's worth going to say you went but adjust your expectations. I cannot imagine how they got a Michelin star.More

Excellent omelet, never eaten something like this, with a smoky taste and so light. Service is decent and the place classy, clean and nice. Visited by many famous people. Must visit.

I don't know where the hype of this omelet is coming from. We took the menu with omelet included. Really....the taste is not worth of the price. Others took something else and this was quite good. So we were little disappointed.

The hotel is really pleasant, we’d advise anyone to stay there. But, the restaurant is another story. Three words that define it: pretentious, mediocre, overpriced. The children’s menu is 20 euros for a main dish and a dessert. It listed as the main dish a...quarter roast chicken. Instead, we received a dry chicken breast drowning in some inedible gravy with a side dish of French fries tasting so weirdly not even our hungry child would eat them. BTW they charge 7 euros for an Apple Juice! The menu choices for the adults are either 39,99 Euros or 49,99 for a 3-course meal. We picked the less expensive one. Each and every dish was an utter disaster. No flavors plus mediocre ingredients and their incomprehensible combinations define this culinary experience. We highly recommend you skip this place. Hopefully, someone there will wake up and realize the disservice they’re doing to their paying customers. But, that’s unlikely. The waitstaff, although quite professional, clearly bought into the pretentiousness of the place. They didn’t react helpfully to any complaints. Avoid this restaurant if you can. We gave two stars in order to acknowledge the very pleasant hotel experience, but also to warn about the mediocrity of the restaurant. Btw, even though breakfast was included in our stay we skipped it after having ‘enjoyed’ their kitchen the night before. It wasn’t worth the aggravation.More

It is outright laughable that this restaurant has Michelin stars. I got the lamb which I actually think was mutton which is false advertisement. It was hard to chew and not flavorful. The only reason that I did not give it 1 star is because...the lobster bisque was delicious and the dessert was great as well. I am so over Michelin star restaurants at this point. I just want good food.More

My omelette was half-rare, salad greens were wilted, 2 out of 3 pieces of lamb were tough to chew. Butter was served super cold and impossible to spread, however it made no difference since bread rolls were stale and completely inedible. Dessert was a joke,...too. Service was mediocre, our server never asked if we needed another drink or our water refilled, even though water bottle was empty half-way through the meal. Really the only good thing about this place is the location. I honestly do not know how did they receive Michelin recognition last year; my assumption is that the main chef left right after and place has gone down since.More

Absolutely loved the omelette, well worth the wait. the staff here were great and so attentive even though it was really really busy. Sitting looking at all the photos on the wall while we waited and the 'cooking of the omlette' watching was fascinating.

When we got into the cafe they used a long time to find us a table, although the cafe was almost empty! I ordered a crepe with caramelized apples, and what I received was an apple tart with a very sour cream on the side....When I told the waitress that it was the wrong order, she rolled her eyes at me, and was very rude. She also made clear that it was my problem, and because of her rudeness I didn’t dare not to take the Apple tart. It was not good, and neither was the coffee. The worst cafe experience I have ever had in France. Also very expensive, compared to the service and product you receive. Would not recommend to my worst enemy..More

One of my good French friends told me I had to come here when I visit MSM. Despite all the bad reviews, I found myself at the restaurant. No one paid me any attention for a long time while I waited to be seated. The...place was empty except for one table. Finally, the maitre’d came and gave me the worst table of the whole place. I requested a better table and he signaled that he didn’t like my rain coat. Why that mattered on which table I sit at is beyond me. I took the raincoat off and sat at the table of my choice. I like fish soup and asked if they made it fresh there on site. He said yes. The watery taste betrayed it as something obviously from a can or previously frozen. The star of the show, the omelette, was fluffy and pretty for an instagram shot. Taste wise, it was light and fluffy. Good for an omelette but not at this price. The dessert was boring. All that for €55 which is way too much. A perfect tourist trap!More

Yes, Ma Mere Poulard still uses magnificent large copper mixing bowls that are a ground floor attraction while waiting for a table.
