The prestigious Goncourt Book Prize has been awarded in this mythical establishment since 1914 and the Renaudot since 1926! Meticulously revamped, the smart brasserie interior now provides a backdrop for traditional French staples (pork pie, vol-au-vent), together with more inventive creations. The wine list has also been dusted off by an MOF sommelier.

    The four of us had placed an order for starters and entrees that was poorly communicated to the kitchen staff. The starters arrived on time. However the entrees took over an hour due to poor communication in the kitchen. When the staff was questioned they blamed it on the rush in the restaurant, although we were among the first in the restaurant to arrive. The voul a vent arrived cold and the seafood was uncooked in the hurry to get it out. The waitstaff never admitted there was a problem other than there were too many people in the restaurant. To compensate, the voul a vent was taken off the bill. However there was no compensation to the other diners who had to wait over an hour for their dishes. I would not recommend this restaurant in spite of its nice surroundings and nicely presented menu

    A real disappointment and would not go back. The service was spotty, had to make multiple requests for items, as did other diners. The food was underwhelming and all in all not a place I’d recommend.

    Dinner was great! The food, ambience, and experience were amazing. Our service was not quite right. He wanted us to order very quickly and then later was no where to be find when we wanted additional drinks to enjoy. I would still go back and enjoy another great night.

    Amazing place to dine. I was a little under dressed for this restaurant. Our waiter forgot about us twice. The first time was 20 minutes. Our second time was after appetizers was 20 minutes. Don’t know if it was my attire of if he was new. Everything else was superb.

    This is a lovely restaurant with white table cloths, yet a cozy, inviting atmosphere. We loved our outdoor dining experience. They have an enormous,  reasonably priced wine list.  We had a smoked salmon appetizer, the grilled veal chop, and the Gatinais chicken. All were delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. We highly recommend!

    They know nothing about the hospitality side of restaurant business. After my meal started they seated a father with very young, very loud child next to me. Refused to move me (even though it is not my fault). I had to pay a fortune for the "privilege" of enduring an almost two hour long tantrum. Servers and management completely ignored my pleas to be assisted but everyone else with misbehaving loud children is fine? Seriously considering having my bank card issuer cancel this charge. If the management is reading this I would appreciate your reaching out to me for a refund. I did enjoy the food and the (other aspects of) service but it was egregious to ruin my evening like that. I make it a point to go whenever I am in Paris, but never again. You have lost a loyal customer and advocate.

    Drouant is a restaurant open on Sunday and there are few of those in Paris. We enjoyed our meal and especially the starter vegetable courses, especially the asparagus with grapefruit. Although vol-au-vent is a signature dish I was disappointed, although the pastry was sublime the filling had a weird texture and the veal and prawns tasted the same. The theatre with the steak tartar made our mouths water before it was presented and was very good. I would recommend the restaurant but I would choose more carefully.

    Drouant a été incroyable du début à la fin. Ma famille et moi sommes arrivés à 10h27 et non seulement la cuisine était sur le point de fermer, mais l'ordinateur du restaurant ne fonctionnait pas non plus. Quoi qu'il en soit, le directeur nous a assis pour une belle soirée. Le serveur a expliqué le menu et répondu à plusieurs questions. Il nous a ensuite guidés étape par étape à travers un tartare de boeuf à côté de la table, ce qui était super. Drouant a l'un des meilleurs filets que j'ai jamais eu avec une sauce exquise et des truffes comme garniture. Encore une fois, merci au personnel de Drouant pour cette merveilleuse nuit.

    I have had a number of set menus before, however, I was rather disappointed at the service received on NYE despite the restaurant not been as busy as expected. We felt very rushed to leave and requested a break after our second course and our main immediately turned up. Steak came out and it wasn’t cooked as requested. Overall expensive for what it was.

    This is not the same as it used to be. Mostly tourists and the menu used to feature French specialties now a thin and pared down version of its former self. While still a pretty place it has lost its French charm. Sad to see.
