    Fantastic meal from start to finish. Wonderfully well balanced dishes. We particularly enjoyed the wrasse and mussels dish. 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...

Le service était parfait. L'ambiance très feutrée et la cuisine ouverte donnait un côté intimiste très appréciable.

    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.

    We had the Immersion Tasting menu with wine pairing. The chef was very accommodating in arranging for non meat menu choices for one of us. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. However, we were disappointed with the wine pairing selection, it having been described as the “grands vins”. Whilst the service was good we felt a little rushed from one course to the next. The food wasn’t exceptional which it should have been for that price. We had high expectations which unfortunately weren’t met. For what we had we thought it was very expensive and for that reason have answered “no” to recommending Trace to a friend.

    What a perfect dining experience! The food was fantastic, and exceeded all expectations. It is a tasting menu so you have no idea what you will be served and it seemed like 8 courses from small to mid size inventive food. Would recommend to anyone that is open to a fine dining experience where the chef is in control and the wines are perfectly paired. Will definitely return the next time we are in Paris.

    We had a wonderful degustation dinner at Trace. The food was creative, inventive and also delicious. Beautiful to look at and even better to eat. Encouraged to sop up the yummy sauces and juices with bread, we felt unhampered by our surroundings and enjoyed the food as we would in a more casual setting. The staff is wonderfully knowledgeable (and grow some of the ingredients themselves). Definitely recommend.
