The restaurant was its usual outstanding self. However, the parking situation has become unacceptable. The valet service was not operating, and finding on street parking is next to impossible. Unless something is done to restore the valet service consistently, this will be our last visit.

I’ve eaten here many times and enjoyed. Always boisterous, frequently noisy. But this last time noise level so high as to make conversation impossible. Their famous mussels not good—broth problematic. Very nice bread, wine and service staff. Hopefully my dinner an anomaly

Wonderful meal of steak tartare followed by trout filet - very nicely presented with tasteful vegetables.
Had their house French Chardonnay wine - good and reasonable as usual.
Server- Cullen was knowledgeable and attentive throughout the meal, also other staff are recommended.
Will return again as we have so many times in the past.
Parking under city hall is easy and reasonable - just across the street.

Everything was wonderful. High recommendation. The mussels are very special. A dozen choices for sauces. The short ribs were tender and succulent. All in all it’s a great meal for not a crazy high price. Such a nice wait staff.

Lovely setting and great service. Sadly we found the mussels to be somewhat dry and disappointing. The onion soup is terrific and so is the trout

Nicole was outstanding. I came for the muscles and I was kind of disappointed. Seemed bland and the salad was soggy. Wine was good and dessert was delicious. My wife’s special of the night was good though. Overall dont set your expectations too high. Go meet Nicole though she saved the evening!

We have always loved this spot but have not had great experiences on our last two visits. In both cases the kitchen was backed up and food was not available for 30-45 minutes. Our waitress apologized profusely the first time ... which brought us back this weekend. Unfortunately I don’t think our waitress remembered we were there, and worse the 2 of the 3 meals were not as ordered. I love that this remains a Culver City staple, but with so many other options we will skip in the future.

Poor service, even though we were the only people in the restaurant for the first 15-20 minutes of our meal. Food was close to inedible. French onion soup was lukewarm bordering on cold. One of the worst meals I've had in a long time.

We went for the all you can eat PEI mussels which did not disappoint! They were really good and come with so many different sauces to try. Most of them are cream sauces and filling. Wish they had a few more brothy type sauces. Service was excellent, so friendly and attentive.
Small, cute intimate place.

We have been to this restaurant several times, but this time was terrible! Table was sliding around on the floor, and they were reluctant to fix, but worse was the fact that they brought the entrees for 4 of us, and it was not until they were almost done that the last two showed up. No apologies, not explanations.

MEET in Paris is a very small place. Unfortunately, although we made reservations which required a credit card, they were not read to accommodate us, upon arrival; that was a little upsetting. There server was kind and willing to meet our needs. He gave great recommendations. However, the service was very slow. Good thing I was in good company and it made the time spent enjoyable. The food was good and I would likely come back again... but not very soon. I think you have to be in a particular head space to deal with how tight everything is... but I am glad that I experienced it.

Bad service and lousy food. We had a party of 5 and 3 small tables were moved together. All the tables kept moving and our water glasses kept tipping over. Coffee was a joke and scrambled eggs were overdone. Staff seemed overwhelmed and didn't know what they were doing. Would not recommend.

Love the outdoor patio seating. Really cosy and does reminds us of Paris. A little Parisian music would be nice. French onion soup is a little to sweet for us. Scallop risotto and bisque tasted divine! Food is good, nothing out of the ordinary. A little pricier than we thought for a bistro dining.

The food was really good actually the mussels were perfect. The ambiance was really nice casual and remind me Paris;)The only thing is floors. I was near to fall down when I enter the place. It was incredibly slippery. They said they are going to fix it. Be careful when you enter inside.

From the moment we were seated outside, we felt like we were back in Paris. All the staff acted as if we were their longtime friends and they couldn’t have been nicer.

The food was spectacular - coq au vain, mussels, escargot, steak frittes, abd too top it of 1/2 price wine and the most delicious chocolate lava cake we’ve ever had!!!! This is our new favorite restaurant in the area and we will definitely be regulars. We stopped in after picking up our daughter at LAX and we will find every excuse to return for their delicious food and wonderful service!!!

Benedict over-cooked. Instead of a beautiful yolk cascade a firm mass crumbled onto the dish. Service is capable, but hit-or-miss. Tables crowded together, but manages to retain some charm.

I did the Screenland 5k race then had a birthday brunch at MIP. I had reservations but and another person show up and they easily accommodated me even though it was very busy. The service was great and quick; shout out to Cullen who was chill and readily available with our F&B. Look forward to coming again!
