Tips from the Net @ Bouillon Chartier

Great ambiance! The place has not changed for decades! You get a slice of history. The food is very French & délicieux. The waiting staff is friendly and smartly dressed. Bear in mind that you may be sitting next to another couple on the same table. But worth it. GooglePlace - October 2017

Very fun, well known restaurant/cafe. DO NOT go during the weekend! During the week only. Be prepared for a wait, small groups won't take long. Pros: -Extremely fast service -Delicious food and variety of French cuisine -Nice atmosphere, with great decorations and French feel Cons: -DOES NOT PROVIDE A LOUNGING EXPERIENCE! (If this is fine with you, then seek it out) -More of an American restaurant experience because of the hectic and loud atmosphere Overall, I would suggest still going there but don't expect a quaint French bistro or cafe.

Excellent stop for lunch or dinner. The food & service is very good. The ambience is superb. You probably will be seated with or joined by other diners, but fear not... it just France Yes... they write your order on the table cloth as well as figure your bill... worth a visit We will return GooglePlace - September 2017

Very good place, good balance between traditional and touristy. Beware that you might be seated and the same table and in very close quarters with other patrons. Waiters are pretty good, so is the sangria and the escargot (good place to try it for the first time). Cons are that it gets pretty crowded, and so besides being cramped the service also takes a hit. Just time it right and don't go during high volume times. Prices are super ultra reasonable, you can get a full course meal for one for around 20 euros. Place also looks super classical French on the inside, menus are in both French and English. Food is good quality, as good as you can get for the price. Overall highly recommended, good place to try out light French food as a tourist. GooglePlace - September 2017

I love coming here. But the customer service varies with each waiter. I have had some amazing waiters and I left a good tip( tipping is not necessary). I have fallen on some really horrible and Rude waiters here. Some will complain if you ask for water or if you don't have your order ready in two minutes. If you are here at rush hour, don't expect the most friendly service. They are rushing around trying to get you in and out quickly . The duck and potatoes are my fave and the decor is simple, old and elegant. Don't come here if your looking for a long and relaxing lunch or dinner. They are NOT THE typical french restaurant, when it comes to taking your time and enjoying your meal. Again it's not always this way, just informing those that may get offended easily.
