Lunch here was great. Very comfortable, dark cafe downstairs and upstairs more seating, all white, lots of light overlooking the sidewalk.
We had two kids with us (6yo and 12yo) and had no issues with the space or menu. Service was friendly, attentive, and in English once he heard us talking. Thanks for that, Grizzli.
The burger was crazy good and big enough for kids to share plus incredible frites. My husband had the roast chicken which was a bit dry but the gravy more than made up for that. I had a salad with roasted eggplant a and peppers plus goat cheese rolled in prosciutto. A dessert was a lovely cheesecake and something like carmalized banana crepes. All awesome.
The wine offerings were good and affordable and we had a delicious Rhone blend. A this is near our hotel we'll certainly be coming back. So glad we found it.
A great find for a rainy Sunday night. The confit de canard and frites were brilliant - really. As a matter of fact, I'd have a difficult time getting something different next time. But maybe the first time is always the best...I don't know?
For desert I had tatin de pommes which is sort of like apple pie without the crust - served with creme fraiche - it was also very good.
The decor is warm and inviting. Lighting is just right and seating is typically intimate. Service was friendly and well paced and the wine was not overly priced.
Yelp is fairly reliable in metropolitan areas where it's well established. I didn't research Grizzli Cafe and we more or less stumbled inito a cool situation. Serendipity in finding a nice restaurant is a real high point for me these days. I gotta think about that.
Anyway, if your in the first or sort of on edge of the fourth (heading into the Marais), this is definitely worth checking out. Dinner for 2 with deserts, a bottle and a half of wine, coffee - €100.
New owners perhaps this year (2014) and many changes. No longer as good or as inviting as before. The new red color scheme and 60/70s music has changed the atmosphere towards touristy and the food and service leave much to be desired. Sadly, Le Grizzli can no longer be recommended.
OH MY GOSH. (I like that another reviewer started out like this as well, that certainly says something). The food here is incredible. We were really really lucky to come here. This place was by far my most favorite meal in Paris. At the beginning of the night we were at another restaurant- we hadn't been greeted, no menu, the people next to us had been waiting 45 minutes for their food, a waiter just dropped a massive stack of dishes, and more and more people were seating themselves. Nightmare! So we left, and found the most romantic and fantastic place EVER!
Grizzli Cafe is an intimate little cafe that provided a warm and relaxing place to wind down after a long day. Everywhere else was packed, usually this isn't a good sign, but everything here was wonderful. We began with the recommended wine- Chateau Grazin- Montaigu (I hope I wrote that right). The wine was very very good and light, I loved it! That's about as specific as I get with wine unfortunately.
My boyfriend ordered the duck skewers with a peanut sauce and I had chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. Oh dear lord, when I'm feeling homesick on Thanksgiving I might just book a flight to Paris and have this dish again. It was phenomenal. The chicken was cooked with just the right amount of love! It had a crispy skin and ever so juicy meat. And the gravy- oh the gravy! It was probably the best gravy I've ever had, and it complimented the mashed potatoes beautifully. All I can say is wow.
My boyfriend really liked his meal. The duck was tasty and the peanut sauce was very unique. It had extremely bold flavors that were unexpected but very very good.
The meal and service were fantastic. I would most definitely come here again.
Ich liebe Grizzly Cafe. Das Essen ist mega mega fein. Ich kann nicht glauben wie gut das Essen ist! Ich habe das Henchen mit Bratensauce. Die Bratensauce ist sehr gut und sie ist miene favorite. Das ist kein Thanksgiving hier aber ich kann nach Paris gehen und ich kann das Gericht essen. Ich LIEBE GRIZZLI CAFE. Der Weis ist sehr gut. Wir haben Chateau Grazin- Montaigu und es ist mega fein. Wir kommen wieder.
Some clients I was working with took me here for lunch. I had a pork dish with a nice creamy sauce and fries. It was very good. I also had a local beer that tasted great. The place is very dark inside and would probably be a good place to take a date if you were there with your better half.
Oh my god. Amazing, amazing food. Confit de canard, boeuf tartare, duck fat fries, pistachio creme brulee, cucumber gazpacho with tomato sorbet...amazing. My best meal in Paris, by far. I went with my friends whose French was not so good and the staff were very accommodating. Mostly French clientele, but it's in a somewhat touristy area, so expect some fellow tourists. Still definitely worth trying. A lot of food and drink for 30 euro.
Food was bland I got the cod with bean sprouts and she had the chicken with mashed potatoes. They tasted like instant. Food was not seasoned properly. The win was good but it was 33 euro per bottle for the cheap one. Just not worth the money at all.
Very friendly and helpful to a couple of confused Americans who just got into town. I recommend the leg of duck, as it may have been the best I've ever had. One less star than five because my wife's duck breast was not quite as good, and the prices were high even for Paris.
