Fodor's Review

Above all, you'll want to eat in this 1911 restaurant, part of the dependable Flo group, for its sensational Art Nouveau stained glass, mosaics, Daum lamps, and sinuous Majorelle furniture. But the food is stylish, too, with succulent choices ranging from duck fois gras served with Mirabelle plum chutney to grilled lobster flambé (in whisky, no less). Don't miss out on regional desserts like kouglof (a distinctively-shaped Alsatian cake). The waiters are attentive

and exude Parisian chic.

A rare disappointment in France

Aside from the architecture itself we found this a dull and overpriced lunch destination. Limited formule selection and very expensive a la carte options. Food wasn't bad, but it was not especially good. Place is large, impersonal, and noisy in a jangly, non-festive way. It is right near the train station, and it too feels like a railroad station.
