    EXCELLENT!! After an amazing evening visiting the Eiffel Tower, I decided to treat myself to a good dinner, and chose L’Empire. The food was amazing! The butternut squash soup was the best I’ve tried. The beef was great too with a delicious sauce. And for dessert I had a pineapple ceviche with ginger that was outstanding as well. A nice wine and savory bread made all better. As did the music. But the best was the service. Phillip greeted me very nicely and kept checking how my experience was, and we were able to have a nice brief chat. The two ladies serving the table were very attentive as well. So I can attest that French people can be quite welcoming too!! I’ll come back for sure -and you should try it too

    The vibe was fun and the staff were super nice but the food is just ok. Open Table is not widely used in Paris so the reviews are heavily skewed for this spot.

    The service was prompt and friendly. The food was just above average, cocktails were better. It was not a busy night. Watch your final tab. We were asked for a 20% tip, unaware that the taxes on the bill were 10% and 20%, yes 30%! Yes we gave 20% as we felt a little bit pressured.

    An absolutely awful dining experience. Charged over 600euros for two; the service was terrible. Had to get up to find a server after sitting for 20 minutes just to get water. Entre came out bland after waiting over 2 hours. Advertisement said there was live music but there was none. Avoid this restaurant.

    Food was okay. Seems to be a very American restaurant. The food was okay, probably feasting off the location. When the bill arrived the waiter asked if they could add 20% to the bill which is not customary in Paris - that was disappointing!

    Our family of 5 from the US dined here for Christmas dinner. The atmosphere, service and food were all excellent. We had the salad with vinaigrette dressing, the stuffed chicken with curry sauce, ribeye steak, cod and risotto with shrimp. For dessert we had the chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and the chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. Everything was delicious. 10/10, A+.

    The restaurant presents a good choice of menu, and the food is average. The service was very good, the personnel was friendly and nice. However, the prices are too high for what it offers and for the location being it in a non tourist area in a quite anonymous street. I wouldn’t go back.
