My wife and I went to Alexandre restaurant in August. We really enjoyed dinning there. Alex who manages the restaurant and also gives service to customers is a friendly guy. We ordered cheese fondue which was perfect and we cooked beef, chicken, mushroom ... on stone. I strongly recommend this restaurant when you visit Paris. P.S. we did not know... More

Waited long time because they forgot to take our reservation, despite calling twice during the day. Instead of offering a spot, they let 15 local people in before us, which of course filled the entire place. After that, owner started to blame us, mock female friends and finally even faced phisically my friend... Luckily no fight started. Probably worst experience... More

Terrible experience. Extremely unpolite. We reserved by phone and they lost the reservation. We wait 1 hour outside while receiving offenses for not being French. They mock girls with us for not speaking good French. Unbelievable. Food was average and the service was one of the worst in my life.

Our group had to wait outside the restaurant for 30 minutes despite having made a reservation in advance. Then, once seated, it took another 30 minutes for the waiter to ask for our orders. There are only three things on the menu and they require very little preparation by the chef/staff here, so I don't know why it proved so... More

We (group of 4) went on vacation to Paris and wanted to have traditional fondue. I never had such excellent fondue before! Next time I go to Paris I will definitely go there again. Both waiter and owner were very friendly and the fact that we spoke little French was no problem at all, neither on the phone when we... More

And it was sooooo worth trying again to get in. The service is great, but the fondue is amazing. I highly recommend reservations if your time is limited in Paris. A great local spot that delivers amazing food. Eating inside or out doesn't matter -- the food is always great! Thank you for a great last night in Paris. See... More

We found the place on TripAdvisor and it got very good reviews. We called and booked a table for late one Saturday evening. Arrived around 22 and the place looked quite cozy and full. When we asked for our table, they just shrugged and said they did not have room. They indicated at least 30 min waiting time. No offer... More

We were four people on a Monday night. Booked for 8.30pm (the witching hour for dinner!), and still had great service from the owner despite the amount of people in the restaurant. He offered me a sample of an aperitif I hadn't tried to check that I liked it, and offered us complimentary apple liquor at the end of our... More
