The decor was grand (all lighting by Lalique), bathrooms listed as historic monuments(!), the service was impeccable (in service since 1872), and the drinks were superb, but the food was saw dust (was the chef having a bad day?).
Maybe we were there at a bad time or ordered the wrong dishes, and I feel bad putting down one of Paris's bastions of fine dining, but the only thing we liked was PART of ONE appetizer. We had the full range: appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts (come on -- how did they get a dessert in Paris wrong??), and I don't think it was a fluke that none of them impressed us.
