    My wife and I visited here on our honeymoon in January of 2013. The weather was frigid and very snowy which made getting around difficult but our visit was made much more enjoyable by our dinner here. We stopped in for dinner to learn that no tables were available. We made reservations for a tad later in the evening and ran off to The Hard Rock Cafe to pick up some souvenirs for family. Once back, we were greeted warmly and the dinner with everything from the warm French onion soup to a beautiful steak and potato meal with an amazing light salad was incredible. This brasserie is very cozy and the people were cheerful giving it a wonderful ambience! Highly recommended!!

    The onion soup was sort of like what you'd have at Petit Four on Sunset Strip. It had a gratin cheese topping. The escargot was plentiful and was very flavorful, just slightly chewy. They are snails after all.

    The main courses we had were some duck thing which we couldn't make out. The dish was composed of spherical duck protein, maybe they were large duck testes. I'm not sure. But it was good just uncertain of its composition. The sauce was good.

    The entrecôte had a great flavor but was chewy. It wasn't butchered enough for me, removing the sinewy parts of it would have been nice. I had to do most the butchering on my plate which thankfully I am capable of doing.

    We didn't have dessert because the meals were very hearty.

    The reason I can't give this place four stars is because of the annoying habit of Parisian restaurants allowing their waitstaff to take breaks in the middle of a service to go outside to grab a smoke. The waitress comes back inside smelling of smoke and continues the service. This is not something limited to this restaurant and if you read other reviews of mine, you'll see similar comments. But this stupidness needs to stop. Smoking is not conducive to a pleasant gustatory experience. I don't want to smell that in the middle of my meal.

    How I made it through the 1980s with everyone smoking in restaurants I have no idea. But Jesus Christ if they ever allow this shit to happen again, I will stop eating altogether. It just amazes me that an intelligent and educated populace like that of Paris' continues to habitually smoke.

    It didn't ruin my meal but it definitely is a turn off.

    My final recommendation is to go there and enjoy your meal, if you're in the area. I wouldn't go out of my way though to find this restaurant.

    This was near my hotel. Cozy and friendly. I walked in close to closing but that was no issue. I ordered "eggs mayonaise" and "beef bourgogne" (served with noodles). Both were excellent, the beef was extremely tender, and portions were huge. Although close to tourist epicenter, it was not "touristic" but just plain honest and authentic. I will be back

    Out of all the brasseries I visited in Paris this one had the most character. It wasn't the most fancy. It wasn't the most expensive. It wasn't even my most memorable. It just had real authentic character. True grit.

    By character, I mean the interior had lots of red velvet material on the walls and seating (which had a few holes in it). The lamps and lamp shades looked time warped from the 1890's. The whole interior was decorated like an old Victorian brothel. Not that there's anything wrong with that :-)

    My food here could best be described as good French "comfort food." What I mean is my duck entree was a little bit greasy, but my portion size was large and filling. I walked away stuffed and didn't have any room for dessert.

    By the way, this brasserie is located in the opera district of Paris. It's not too far from the Saint Lazare train station and the Printemps store.

    This cosy resto was a 5 minute walk from our hotel.  The server didn't speak English so I used my 6 years of grade school French to order dinner.  The escargots came in a nice creamy sauce and were absolutely delish.  Steak Frites was also very good.  Profiteroles for dessert ... Yum.  3 lovely choux pastry puffs with delish scoops of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate.  Great end to a great meal and a great week visiting Paris.

    It's ok bistro fare. Just went for a light meal of onion soup and wine. It was fine. Not great - I make better onion soup myself. But it worked for a quick meal. My wifes salad similarly was nothing special. Some lettuce and goat cheese. Adequate bistro.

    Nearby department stores Printemps and
    Galeries Lafayette and the Olympia, The Clos
    Bourguignon is a bar and restaurant district enough
    the remaining discreet.

    There had its habits the late Henri Salvador,
    who dined there in the evening of his death. Other customers and boss' friends are boss Jean Amadou and Laurent Gerra.
    Laurent Gerra ! To listen to the boss he is really a
    good guy, who does not head and forget
    not to celebrate friendship!

    But back to the facility: it is not very
    big, square-shaped instead. A corner bar
    entry, another room for coffee, 3rd east
    reserved the restaurant and 4th is for cooking.
    The ceiling is not very high which accentuates the side
    House that it feels.

    Because this is for the first time or not, as soon as
    you enter, you are pleasantly assaulted by a
    atmosphere, people are happy to be together.
    The boss is a wise man who likes to converse taking
    time.
    As the price of dishes, they are reasonable and
    served quantities are generous.

    An Eden unusual in the 9th arrondissement, within a
    district passing very, very busy. To discover
    absolutely!

    Ex: Formula noon to 10.6 EUR entry (or sausage Egg Mayo
    with garlic salad or nuts) + flat (escalope of
    calf / andouillette / piece of beef). And that's very good!

    Foie gras and boeuf bourguignon at this classic Frenchy resto rocked my lunchtime palate before hopping the train back to St Pancras back in December. The escargot was memorable as well.

    Open late, it's one I plan to keep in mind and very much hope to return to soon.

    What Clos Bourguignon lacks in space (it's a tight little joint crammed with tables for maximum elbow rubbing capacity) it more than makes up for with atmosphere. Service (although surly) is quick.

    Reservations are recommended unless you've got some downtime and don't mind lingering at the bar for awhile.
