A word from Paris Club Bistro and Bar
Paris Club Bistro & Bar is Back! Gone is the industrial dining room, replaced with a warmer and more intimate setting. Plush leather booths, rich wood paneling and antique brass chandeliers create an environment of 1920s Paris. To further celebrate traditional France, Chef Partner Doug Psaltis and Executive Chef Christian Eckmann have focused on assembling a menu of celebrated classics like Hand-Cut Steak Tartare, French Onion Soup, Chateaubriand and Dover Sole Meunière.

Rediscover Paris.

Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I have been to Paris several times. For our 45th wedding anniversary we decided to try the Paris Club Bistro and Bar. The entire experience from beginning to end was wonderful. The service was courteous, friendly, and competent. The menu was tantalizing. I had the escargot and my husband had the mussels. Just like Paris.....delicious, hot and perfect. Both of us decided to have the traditional bistro fare of steak frites. The skirt steak was cooked to perfection, crispy on the outside, juicy and tender within and the trio of sauces...out of this world. The manager treated us to a glass of champagne to finish our meal as we were too full to have dessert. Wine, food, service and atmosphere....the perfect blend!"

  • "Perfect for my 40th Birthday Celebration. Staff and service was impeccable. Food was very high quality."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "No question -- the food here is delicious and well prepared. Our foursome tried cocktails, wine, apps, mains and desserts and every dish was excellent. But if we say we need a minute with the menu, give us an actual minute. No exaggeration. We weren't slow -- we were headed to a show and the room was half empty. Still, we had to guard our plates, as we kept being asked if they could be taken while there was still food on them. It was utterly distracting and annoying and rather out of step with the French vibe. Yes, we talked to our server and the manager about it, but it didn't matter. Turning tables is clearly a pervasive strategy."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Bring back Brasseries Jo's food and atmosphere. No comparison to the latest try with Paris Club Bistro. Service still very good but the wait staff cannot do everything needed to make this a good restaurant."

  • "My wife and I are from boston and we just loved this place. We went on a tues night. First of all everything we ate was delicious. Service was swift and the pace we liked. The ambiance was perhaps the best part for us. It felt like a Paris bistro. We had the theri bbc s and pork dishes. Their signature desert was amazing. Great spot"

  • "My sister and I planned a last minute trip to Chicago, and we're obsessed with all things French, so we googled French restaurants in Chicago and made reservations. Our minds were blown, such an amazing experience, and even better food. Thank you for a wonderful night! This place is a must everytime we're in Chicago."

  • "Best salmon dish I have eaten in my entire life. Perfectly cooked with a well balanced simple sauce, simply delicious! Girlfriend has the Hangar Steak which was also excellent. Bearnaise sauce was on point."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Everything was excellent. The good, the service, the wine-everything. I ordered oysters on a half shell and loved it, we ordered their version of the filet and loved it. Our only complaint was that it was a bit dark in there and the next table was within arms length. We got used to it after a while, but would have preferred it the other way around. Overall, great experience and we will definitely be coming back on our next chicago trip!"

  • "Gianni gave prompt and caring service while the food was all outstanding, steak cooked perfectly, great wine selection and recommendations by the bartender as well as our server."

  • "Don't get "the Famous Duck". It's oily, tasteless, and has multiple little bones. French onion soup was over cooked, also tasteless. Service was good and great ambiance."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "I was disappointed in my recent visit. The tomato salad consisted of a few cherry tomatoes instead of the large sliced tomatoes I had expected and would have gotten at other places. Absolutely not worth what they charged. Additionally, my salmon and French fries were greasy."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We entertained relatives from out-of-state here last Sunday evening and we were all very impressed. Our server (I don't recall her giving us her name) was absolutely outstanding...personable, knowledgeable and very accommodating! She was able to explain the various cuts of steak offered and also suggested a wine that everyone was happy with. The food came out promptly and was delicious and cooked to everyone's preference. This was my first time here and I was a bit worried that it would be cavernous and noisy. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by it's subdued, warm decor and manageable acoustics. I (we) would definitely dine here again."

  • "Had the oysters, escargot and hangar steak. Everything delicious and served with understated elegance. Wait staff was friendly and helpful"

  • "Had a lovely meal and despite crowd we were seated within minutes of our reservation time. Not bad for Chicago on a Friday night."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "WE enjoyed a wonderful meal here, in gorgeous surroundings. Our server was vibrant, intelligent and knowledgeable. we asked for a wine recommendation and the wine person was at our table for several minues to help us with our selection. (He suggested a great Vouvray which we would never have picked for ourselves). Our food was excellent and we will be back many times."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Clubby atmosphere suggestive of, of all things, a Paris Bistro! Food is also typical with several versions of steak frites, mussels, escargot, roast chicken etc. French wine list has some good values. My wife and I have gone 3 or 4 times and the food is consistently high quality, well prepared and served."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Love the new décor. It is very cozy, elegant and intimate. Malory was a knowledgeable and attentive waitress. They have these delicious warm cheese puff pastries (COMPLEMENTRY) that melt in your mouth. I told her I loved them and she brought me more. The steak and frite with the bearnise sauce was very well prepared. There were other dinner selections I can't wait to try. To top off my night the manager sent over a small éclair because in visiting my table I made the comment to him that the dessert list looked great but I did not have room for a full dessert. The dinner made me feel special and isn't that what dining is about."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Tried this restaurant new for our anniversary. We have enjoyed other French restaurants in Chicago and this one was just as great! Delicious food (we shared the orange spiced duck), old Paris atmosphere, wonderful service. We would come back for a romantic night. I thought the servings of food were larger than most French restaurants. A little too much for me, but others may prefer that."

  • "The entire experience was great! Such good service"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was my first visit to the Paris Club and also a memorable one. It had a very intimate atmosphere, mostly romantic in décor and lighting. Seeing a lot of couples dining in there accentuated that kind of atmosphere. The food was expensive, but the taste and amount of it was worth it. I couldn't eat there once a month, but I wish I could. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable, answered all questions asked. and was very attentive to our needs. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good French food and French wine, especially if you want to go for a special occasion and go to a special place."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "It was a birthday celebration for me. For starters we had the berkshire ham and the Frisee lardon salad. The bacon on the salad that looked like croutons was amazing! For our entrees, my husband had the Steak Frites and I had the Garlic roast chicken with pommes puree. The chicken was the best roast or sauteed chicken I've ever had. The sauce was to die for. The mashed potatoes was also very good. The wait staff did a great job too. They were attentive without being obtrusive. For dessert, the staff brought out a surprise profiteroles with a lit up candle. They made my birthday dinner very special."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My friend, who truly enjoys fine French cuisine, and I dined there recently. She had never been to the Paris Club Bistro and Bar. I had been there before and really enjoyed it. I wanted to surprise her with the great atmosphere, the superior service and the excellent food. She was not disappointed. Thank you for a memorable meal and experience."

    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We chose Paris Club to celebrate my niece's graduation from college, it did not disappoint! The server was so accommodating, she even brought a little taste of the special risotto (which had truffles in it) for my niece to taste before ordering. Seafood plateau was a delight of fresh oysters, lobster and shrimp, steak frites is always a favorite and the skate was delicious. This is on our go-to list of places."

  • "We had a wonderful experience at Paris Club Bistro. The food was delicious and very French. Will be going back!!!"

  • "I went with my family to The Paris Club to have a birthday dinner for my wife. Her birthday was on Bastille Day and so we chose the Paris Club in hopes of some added fun. Sadly, the restaurant was not actively participating in the French celebration, but the dinner was still really good. Our waitress was very warm, professional and attentive. Our one complaint was the "frites" that came with the traditional French steak frites were really thicker soft fries and not the authentic thin and crisp "frites" of France."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Try the Cold seafood platterat whatever level, it's superb ...and so is the steak tartare!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This is not the original Paris Club- very different vibe- smaller, tighter, a little darker... same food offerings- served a little differently- bigger portions- less small plate format. Great service even though the restaurant was jammed full."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were fans of Brasserie Jo but didn't like the first Paris Club. Too loud and noisy. The New version of Paris Club is the best of the old with a little Mon Ami Gabi thrown in. The dining room is a comfortable old fashioned room, dark wood, white tablecloths, big banquettes and tables with enough space you aren't sharing a conversation with the next table. Background music is retro but not loud. Service was excellent, attentive and nicely paced. Food is standard bistro fare, nothing experimental or daring, but well prepared and presented. Something old is something new."

  • "the lobster risotto with shaved black truffles was outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The service at Paris Club is just wonderful. We came for dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were seated right away, and were immediately brought a lovely amuse bouche from the kitchen. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, helping us select a lovely wine to accompany our meal. The French Onion soup was spectacular, as was the Moules Frites and the Lobster Risotto with black truffles. They also remembered that it was a birthday dinner, and brought us a dessert compliments of the house. Overall, we enjoyed a fabulous evening and we can't wait to go back again!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We enjoyed our visit to Paris Club! We had some delicious drinks at the bar prepared by the over-the-top bartender, so knowledgeable!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Our meal was delicious. The onion soup was exceptionally sweet and the frisee salad had huge chunks of lardons that were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The lardons, combined with the crunchy frisee and the oozy poached egg, made one great salad. We shared a special- lobster risotto. It was also delicious, but the kitchen made a mistake in the preparation, and we had to wait almost a half hour for our entree. Other than that delay, our meal was delightful."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We expected good to great food, good to great service, and a really nice atmosphere, a la Lettuce Entertain You. Instead we got gloppy food, slow service, and a constant thump thump thump from the the club above. Ugh."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The quality and flavor of the food was excellent. We all enjoyed what we ordered, but were looking to order a few more sides and struggled to find healthier options except for the raw bar. The menu did not have a lot of variety. We were trying to order things on the healthier side. We tried to order a side order of asparagus at 6:15 PM in the evening the had none left. Really in the summer in the early evening? They did not have a lot variety for vegetable selection except the mushrooms which were 12.95 and although delicious a very tiny order.for a French bistro I found it to be just average in terms of selection."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Disappointed in the quality of the food (fish and steak) for the over-inflated prices. We had to wait a long time for our food and then it was dried out. If they offered more generous sides with the meats/fish, it would make the restaurant more generous as it should be. It wasn't particularly French, either. This restaurant should study the workings of Mon Ami Gabi and try to be more like that, quality-wise. Even the bread was not as good as the baguette brought to the table at Mon Ami."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Appropriately enough, the French Onion Soup here is the best we've ever had! The 2008 Nuits St. George offering was superb. Our server was perfect."
