One of our best nights in Paris. We lucked out on a corner window seat, had a great view. The food was excellent! I had the risotto, and I basically licked my bowl clean. Dessert was great. Service was great! Really enjoyed it here.

We had a typical French breakfast: croissants, orange juice, coffee, bread, butter and jam. We ordered "brunch" which features eggs (carbs are dominant everywhere for breakfast!) and I improved my French by learning "oeufs au plat" means fried eggs, which arrive 3 per customer sunny side up. Language skills improved! Service was briskly efficient, and waiter seemed amused at my... More

This is one of the old Brasseries of Paris where the artistic greats like Picasso and Hemingway would hang out. It's not touristy like some of the other famous literary crowd hangouts. We got there early for lunch and were greeted warmly. We had a wonderful light lunch of a artichoke and asparagus salad with rocket lettuce and shaved Parmesan.... More

As a French guy living outside France since a lot of times, I needed to get back this Parisian feeling - There is no better place than this one : great food, server with the right attitude, bunch of artists and politicians sitting there... Decor, food, people, the perfect combination !

We were looking for a place where we could have brunch before taking a train and after visiting several brasseries in the area ended up here. The breakfast menu has the usual pastries but also cooked eggs and omelettes - exactly what we were looking for. The atmosphere is refined without being snobbish and the architectural features very appealing particularly... More

I just got to Paris and I was looking for something quick to eat and I found Le Select Café. The food was average and service can be improved. Location was great and the patio Charis were almost full.

We had a lovely evening here, sitting on the enclosed terrace and watching the world go by as we had our dinner. The service was excellent as was the food. A great place for a meal in relaxed surroundings.

Visited with my two teens. Medium price compared to some parts of Paris. Friendly waiter. Good location. Food was good and wine also not bad.

Visited here for a late lunch after we realized Le Dome across the street was closed until dinner. Haven't been in years and usually avoid it because of the tourist crowds but glad to see this brasserie stalwart hasn't changed. So evocative of M'Parnasse in it's heyday. Some homages to the Lost Generation but not too cloying. Ate on the... More
