Tips from the Net @ Bouillon Chartier

Great atmosphere. A strong enough reason to visit on that note alone. Te duck pate was excellent. Very good I highly recommend it. The meats that me and my group got where sub par. All a bit dry and bland. Aside from that it was an amazing experience, a unique place worth the visit no matter what. GooglePlace - January 2018

My aunt and cousin took me here for dinner and it was awesome. The building is very historical and the service was excellent. The ambient atmosphere was nice but it can be a tight squeeze. The food served was good and I would come back to this place again. The line getting into the restaurant can get very long. GooglePlace - December 2017

Very delicious! Affordable prices for quality French food. The experience of going here is great, but expect to wait to get in (groups of 2 move the fastest). The prices are very affordable, so it isn't the finest French cuisine but it is traditional and simple. Very fun! Great for students, couple's, families, etc. GooglePlace - November 2017

Despite the long queue to get in, we had a great time there. The waiter was really helpful and friendly, I really liked that. The service was quick and the food decent. Cons? First a long strange queue, we waited more than other people just because we weren't the right number of people. Same story: as soon as you finish eating, you have to free the table.

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.
