    I can only comment on their service as we eventually left without ordering, but their customer service leaves A LOT to be desired, especially for an establishment as storied as Le Procope. When we first arrived, the maitre d’ was very dismissive and refused to acknowledge our OpenTable reservation, demanding to see proof that we actually had a reservation. After showing him an email confirming said reservation, the maitre d’ still refused to acknowledge it and stated he would add us to their “walk-in” list but wouldn’t guarantee a table (although they had just opened another dining room with numerous empty tables). After 10-15 minutes, one of the servers finally came to retrieve us, stating they had set up a table in their “terrace”, which was actually a back alley. The final straw was that the place settings appeared used/dirty. We left soon after.

    A wonderful large old fashioned French bistro. Great service, nice atmosphere and great food. The veal stew was absolutely wonderful! Would go again!

    Not impressed with this place, I’ve asked in advance for something to help us celebrate my friend’s birthday which they failed. Food was ok, I personally found my duck was too salty, desert was a disaster tiramisu watery tasteless. Service was the worst we had to serve all our drinks ourselves, they clearly favoured certain customers.

    The only knock on this place is Open Table didn’t work the last time I tried. It said I had a reservation, but I really didn’t. I seem to have heard other people mention the same thing.

    On a rainy night in Paris we chose this popular restaurant because it was close by. We were happy with our experience. The fois gras was delicious and the rest of our meal was fine. We ate early when the restaurant was not completely full and requested a quiet table in our Open Table preferences. The evening was relaxed and pleasant and the old world charm of the building was an added bonus.

    Very classy and traditional decor. I felt like going into a great late 19 century luxury restaurant. Staffs are friendly and quick. Plating of food is traditionally. Taste of food is good but not exceptional. Could be a better experience if they gave me a better table. Book the table from open table just 30 minutes ahead, so I guess I deserved to be seated on odd corner at entrance of back room

    The foie gras with pistachio was very good and a large serving but unfortunately the beef steak was inedible. I have never been served a more tough cut of meat. It could not be cut with a steak knife. We sent it back and elected not to have anything else. I know they just recently reopened. Maybe they lost their good suppliers?

    The Oldest joint in town. Step into 17th century Paris and immerse yourself in a great atmosphere with good food and nice service. Visualise yourself sitting in the same spot as philosophers and dignitaries from time past. This is the Procope, a piece of timeless history still bringing up a smile to both mouth and gut.

    Food was very good and atmosphere was great. Service was leisurely which is nice but it was a bit too leisurely - took 3 hours for dinner and we had fading children with us. I think they were understaffed.

    The restaurant insists they have no affiliation with Open Table. They did not honor our reservation per se, but found a table for us after a short wait. This happened to us twice during stay in PAris.

    We discovered the restaurant while walking in St Germain. Loved the look and its history. The food was excellent-recommend the filet with bernaise. The ambiance is old world traditional with lots of historic references. Be sure to ask to see Napoleon’s hat.
