The service was exceptional on every level! Most of the food was excellent. Our steak frites were served well done despite a medium rare order, but the flavor was still excellent and when we brought it to the attention of our waitress, it was rectified immediately with the enormous courtesy and grace. Beef Bourgignon, oysters, octopus and burgers were the winners on our visit -- really delicious.

Being my first visit to The Bercy and having heard / read multiple good reviews, I was hoping for the same. It was good but far from great. The service was incredible slow. Watching three tables seated after us being served only added to that frustration. The food was good but again I was hoping for much better, especially since it was Mother's Day.

I will be back at some point however I not rushing back any time soon.

My service complaints are related to our wait staff who would take a knife after appetizers and not replace it so we had to ask when entrees arrived. Ditto when they brought tea in a mug with no spoon or saucer. Just weird. Also despite ramp up to restaurant it is not that elderly/walker friendly. And too noisy for elderly.

Mother’s Day brunch - felt like a potluck. Ran out of food- example: no shrimp at raw bar and no filet at carving station. Burned omelet and waffles all broken in pieces. Worst of all - staff were non responsive. Never again!

We went to The Bercy for Mother's Day lunch. I did not know ahead of time that we had to do the "all you can eat" buffet, which was pricier than lunch from the menu. So while I do not think I would go there again for Mother's Day, all of the food was quite good. I had been to this restaurant for dinner twice before, and the food is always excellent with a good variety. In any case, we ended up having a great time and excellent food.

We visited for the $55 mother's day brunch buffet.

In fairness, I have not tried the normal dinner menu which is likely a very different experience. But if you evaluate the brunch buffet for what it is -- there is no justification to come here and pay this price point for the food that you get.

There is bread, some egg dish (it started out as a quiche lorraine and then switched to plain scrambled eggs after 1 hour of opening the doors), breakfast meat, seafood, omelet/waffle station, a carving station, and desserts. All of the food is laid out along the bar area with two satellite stations positioned awkwardly in corners of the dining area. Nothing I had was great -- it was all just generic breakfast food. The leg of lamb was definitely the low point of the meal. Several people were seated right in front of the buffet line and you could tell they were visibly annoyed by a sea of people's waists hovering inches away from their food for their entire meal.

It goes without saying that I would not go back again for the brunch -- but I would go as far as to say that I would not go back even if the price was cut in half.

Radnor Hotel Sunday brunch buffet is orders of magnitude better in quality, service, and ambiance at a price point 40% lower than Bercy. If I were a betting man, I would guess that the rate of return customers who attend Bercy for Mother's day brunch would be in the single digit percentages.

We had a group of seven for my father's 80th birthday and enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and accommodating. The interior is well designed, typical of many restaurants today. The prices are a bit on the high side, but the overall food quality is good. My French onion soup was excellent, although the steak with the steak frites was a bit on the fatty side.

Beautiful building and decor but they have work to do, particularly with their service staff. The food got out quick, but then the service stopped. They didn't come over to ask if everything came out right in a timely manner. By the time they got there and I had to ask for salt and pepper (should have already been on the table), my entree was halfway complete.

We had three creme brulees on our dessert table and no spoons. Took me five minutes to flag him down and ask for spoons. He gave me a passing "Yeah" upon hearing my request, walked over to the silverware area....and came back with forks. I was getting frustrated by now. "We are eating creme brulee, we need spoons!" He finally came back with spoons.

Sensing my frustration, he (Isaiah) then never returned to our table. He never dropped the check. We sat there for 20 minutes, sometime raising hands to get his attention, and he kept walking past us. Finally the other server brought our check to us.

Food: No real complaints. Most people were happy. The rotisserie chicken was vrey good. The veal disappointed. I didn't expect it to be breaded and fried. And if it is going to b breaded, there should be a sauce to soften it, not just arugula. So yeah, that wasn't a great dish.

Overall a pricey dinner for one of the least pleasing dinner experiences I have had in awhile. I don't expect to come back.

This has become our favorite dinner place. A perfect mix of sophistication and friendly atmosphere. The food is top notch. Our favorites are the chicken and the trout, but we have yet to try anything that wasn’t excellent. The wine list is good too: don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations. You’ll enjoy a great evening here.

The food is overpriced for what you get back in quality. My wife and I both felt sick the next morning after eating here. The person (not sure if it was the general manager) who greeted us and our waiter were both kind and welcoming, so I would in no way complain about how we were greeted or served, but we were disappointed with the food. I also in making my reservation noted to them that it was my wife's birthday and hoped that they might acknowledge her, but they did not.

Rushed would be an understatement. Servers were hovering around our table, anxiously awaiting to clear our plates. More than once we had to say “we are not done”. Intended to go out for a nice relaxing evening that became stressful due to the feeling of being rushed

Another wonderful evening at The Bercy. Superb dinner! My husband raved over the Veal Milanese and I had the trout. So good, one of my favorite items on the menu! Went back on Saturday for a perfectly prepared omelette with sautéed spinach on the side. As always the staff is so welcoming and friendly. We are there so much they are like family. Never disappoints. Go.

I have been here two times now. The BErcy is nice to have in the neighborhood. The atmosphere is nice but not too formal. Last week, service was great although food a little slow. Waiter could not have been nicer. The entrees were fine but a bit pricey. THe appetizer (fois gras) was not very good given the syrupy sweet and messy fruit sauce. The dessert was called a merangue and was inedible. Given the prices, food needs to be better.

We went for Easter brunch. The format was awful. The omelette station was basically in the kitchen, so there wasn’t a good place to wait. The food handling was interesting. The carving station had salmon and duck right next to each other. The omelette chef used the same spatula for my friend’s crab omelette and my cheese omelette, which would be fine if I want allergic. The French toast station was tucked in a corner. Point is, the restaurant shouldn’t offer a buffet. The quarters were tight and unpleasant.
