This is truly an amazing place. Delicious flavours and combinations I have never experienced in a vegan restaurant. And the staff are extremely attentive to every request. I had to leave promptly to go to the opera nearby, and had mentioned this at the time of booking. The staff ensured our dinner was served on time. A big thank you... More

A very good vegan dining experience in Paris with also a great wine selection. The food was original and delicious although not copious. Service very friendly and good although a little on the slow side. All in all, a very pleasant evening.

It's usually quite hard to find good quality cuisine as a Vegan foodie, most vegan places do fast food or bar meals. Gentle Gourmet gives you the authentic fine dining experience with properly composed dishes and even a really good daily menu. It's pricier than most vegan places, but then again, the food, setting and service is of a much... More

I'm a vegan chef and a lot of my friends talk about this restaurant. All they say it's a genuine vegan gourmet experience. In my country I can't find this kind of restaurant, so I was really excited! Luckily, I did not need to make any reservations. I ordered the menu of the day: 1) Sweet potato velouté: perfect and... More

I was so excited about going to this vegan, gourmet restaurant! I convinced three non vegan friends to experienced it with me, I was so disappointed. Food:**1/2 Nice ideas and original menu. When the plates are served though, I found them disappointing in presentation and flavor. No "wow" factor. The hamburger bread was too soggy to eat it with your... More

Four of us visited Gentle Gourmet because one of our party is vegetarian and we thought we'd try it out. The whole meal was great but the desserts were all superb. We tried one of each - the menu has four choices for each course - and we all shared as they were fantastic. Very well presented and tasted devine.... More

This is a very nice vegetarian restaurant. The staff is friendly, cocktails are great, the three-course meal is inspired and well-executed. The dining room is modern, but on the smaller size. They desperately need to upgrade their restrooms.

We dined here on our first night in Paris, unaware that this would be the trip's best experience... We had two different starter; one was a raw sandwich with avocado cream, very tasty and beautiful and the other was Vegusto cheese balls, both dishes were refined, beautiful and had high flavours. For the main dish we had mashed potatoes with... More

While I am not a vegetarian, my daughter is, and this satisfied both of us. The service was good and the drinks were good. I would go back.

Gentle Gourmet is the Home of Vegan Bistronomy in Paris since 2012. We opened as the first vegan restaurant in Paris. We specialize in a generous and gourmet high-end cuisine, fresh, mostly organic and always innovative, with the objective of breaking down the stereotypes on vegan food. We change the menu 4 times a year and offer lunch specials from Wednesday through Friday. Our fine pastries and vegan burgers have been best sellers in Paris.
