    This was as good as any 3 Michelin star restaurant I’ve been to. The food was as delicious as it was creative. The service was friendly, informative and perfectly paced. Each course was the perfect size, and while we left completely satisfied we were not uncomfortable. The atmosphere is casual and unpretentious but the chef deserves all the stars. I cannot recommend more highly.

    The food was outstanding, surpassing what I expected even after reading the glowing reviews. Unique and delicious flavors and the chef's passion for his craft shone through. Would recommend the premium wine tasting if you want to expand your palate's horizons. I didn't like all white wine pairings, but I appreciated how they complemented the food and introduced me to whites from Jura, the Savoie. Overall exceptional meal and I will jump at the chance to visit again!

    Outstanding and truly memorable experience. I expect that this restaurant will be recognized by Michelin and recommend anyone who is in Paris before it becomes impossible to get a reservation. The Chef and staff are passionate about their concept and mange to create a menu of delicate cuisine that is both unexpected and full of flavor. All dishes were great, but there were at least two, that I will remember forever. Wine pairings were also excellent. You will not be disappointed.

    This is one of the rare places to eat in the world where if you fly into a city, you need to prioritize eating here (much like Del Posto was in NYC). Good news here is that Tracé is still open and going strong, with exceptional food, service and value. We dined at a “traditional” French Michelin 3-star restraunt the evening before and Tracé was very comparable, yet more evolved with exceptional service from Felix. We found him helpful and extremely approachable, which only made the experience that much more enjoyable!

We had the non-alcoholic drinks pairing and would very much recommend this - really interesting and well paired drinks. The service was also very good- friendly and professional. We had a lovely evening- thank you!

    Un dîner à trois, une « Immersion » en 8 services selon le menu annoncé… La cuisine d’abord, pour laquelle il faudrait une quinzaine de mots dithyrambiques : imagination, cohérence, accords parfaits, qualité des produits, grand travail au piano et aux consoles… Les surprises les plus grandes se cachent dans les services en apparence les plus simples : un bouillon « signature » de langoustines, limpide, transparent, sans accompagnement sacrifiant aux effets de mode, mais dont puissance et saveur sont inégalées ! Le Chef Clément Vergeat aurait-il reçu en confidence les secrets d’un alchimiste caché au fond de ses casseroles ? Sa gentillesse et son attention le font venir près des tables participer aux dessertes, mais surtout pour prendre « la température » de la salle… Avec une modestie, qui semble malheureusement avoir abandonné quelques-uns de ses aînés, presque rougissant aux compliments, il se risque à nous éclairer : « c’est juste une petite réduction ». Nous sommes déjà trois autour de la table à être dans les nuages, et le maestro nous chuchote à peine son plaisir partagé ! La salle est tenue par un artiste des accords mets-vins, un véritable comédien que l’on attend avec une impatience renouvelée après chaque service. Félix règne en maître sur la présentation des assiettes. S’est-il échappé de la Comédie française, célèbre voisine du restaurant ? Des évocations qui nous mettent l’eau à la bouche et retardent opportunément notre impatience à nous jeter sur la raviole de homard ou sur l’agneau de lait et ses couteaux. Un accord mets-vins très travaillé et pertinent pour accompagner le Menu Immersion. Un minuscule regret : on aimerait un tout petit plus de générosité dans le service des vins : un accompagnement dès la mise en bouche, le fond de verre d’une découverte vigneronne pour débuter de la bonne bouche et du bon pied. Et enfin, sans vouloir abuser ni tituber, 1 ou 2 cl en plus pour accompagner chaque service avec les honneurs qui lui sont dus...

    Very good experience at Tracé. The different plates were elaborated, with nice mix of tastes and textures, and a very interesting non-alcool pairing ! We felt that everything that was proposed was not done at random, and that there was a real coherence and passion behind it. The service was very good as well, quick enough but not too much, with detailed explanations of the different plates.
