Paris Restaurant Recommendations
Many clients ask me for recommendations on where to eat in Paris. I usually eat in small cafés in my neighborhood, which is outside the tourist area. However, many people have told me how nice the following restaurants are for special occasions. None of these restaurants are budget friendly, but if you're in Paris, you may want to splurge!
It's very important you make reservations early, as these restaurants are very popular.
Les Ombres is a restaurant at the Museum Quai Branly, very close to the Eiffel Tower. It has many positive reviews from clients, and has a view of the Eiffel Tower.

Jules Verne - CLOSED FOR RENOVATION UNTIL SPRING 2019 but see 58 TOUR EIFFEL link below
Jules Verne is a stunning restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. It has an amazing view and is a very popular restaurant for special events. While the Jules Verne is closed for renovation, 58 Tour Eiffel, another popular restaurant on the Eiffel Tower is open. Check out info on 58 Tour Eiffel here.
Le Calife is an excellent dinner cruise on the Seine river. They serve an amazing 4-course meal, with nice service, and a stunning view of Paris by night, with the monuments lit. I highly recommend it. Prices for the meals are also quite reasonable when you consider you also have a dinner cruise included. I took a group of 30 on Le Calife, and everyone had an amazing time. Staff speaks great English and have wonderful customer service.

A new river cruise experience by the name of Ducasse sur Seine is being delivered up on the banks of the famous river. Beautiful glass windows, a four-course meal, and views of Paris lit at night, docked right near the Eiffel Tower. Well worth checking out for your special event!
This exquisite French bistro was featured in the movie Something's Gotta Give with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Located just behind the Royal Gardens (Jardins Royale), it is beautiful and the portions are generous.
Famous as being Coco Chanel's favorite spot to dine, this restaurant is an institution in Paris with very high prices. But very elegant decor, and was featured in the movie, Midnight in Paris. It’s absolutely beautiful inside and close to the Louvre Museum.
