Paris Restaurants

Le Georges

Updated 02/19/2014

Fodor's Review

One of those rooftop show-stopping venues so popular in Paris, Le Georges preens atop the Centre Georges Pompidou, accessed by its own entrance to the left of the main doors. The staff is as streamlined and angular as the furniture, and about as responsive. Come snappily dressed or you may be relegated to something resembling a dentist's waiting room. Part of the Costes brothers' empire, the establishment trots out fashionable dishes such as sesame-crusted tuna and coriander-spiced

beef fillet flambéed with cognac. It's all considerably less dazzling than the view, except for the suitably decadent desserts (indulge in the Cracker's cheesecake with yogurt sorbet).

Le Georges Review

Yes, the view is terrific, yes atmosphere is funny, but don't expect to have the attention of the staff if you are a family...Better to be trendy!!! Don't hesitate and refuse to be parked in the tables near the toilets...You have right to be well seated even with young childrens... Alsewhere good menu...

Decent food, but pretentious and overpriced

I had a late lunch by myself at Georges after the restaurant where I really wanted to eat had already closed. As I needed some explanations of the cryptic menu selections (e.g., Aller/Retour, Le Tigre qui Pleure), my too-good-looking waiter promised to return in "deux minutes" to assist me. Despite the restaurant being nearly empty, deux minutes turned into dix, then quinze, until the waiter finally returned and I was able to order a starter of artichokes

and that crying tiger, which the waiter inaccurately described as being beef in a curry sauce, but was really beef with a Vietnamese nuoc cham dipping sauce. The food was however pretty good. Trying to order dessert was equally frustrating. Wanting to simply ask how much Georges charged for a dish of ice cream, I was again given the "deux minutes" brush-off, and at this point I just asked for the check. "No coffee, nussing?" asked pretty-boy waiter, and then deposited my check brusquely and silently at my table, as if his rudeness was my fault. I just plunked down my 50 euros, was not so much as given a Merci or Au revoir, and walked downstairs to the cafeteria for a pastry and coffee, cursing myself for wasting nearly two hours that I could have spent productively sightseeing.

Beautiful View--Mediocre Restaurant

I dined here for lunch on a Saturday and was amazed by the view and the decor. Very swank--almost zen like. The food was medicore. I enjoyed my lobster cream pasta but was disappointed by how heavy the sauce was. On a hot Saturday, one hopes to be greeted by crisp vegetables...too bad the menu did not reflect the change in season. All in all, go up and see the view but don't expect to be eating the best cuisine that Paris has to offer.

Post-Modern Misery

The food was good. Quite good. The rest of the experience was not. The entire evening was accompanied by a pounding dicso beat that did not let up and made conversation hard, sun in our eyes (no, they could NOT change tables for us)...and a huge price tag to the pretentious dinner. Trendy expensive pretention. What's post modern about that? Every decade has one. I love fodors recommendations and have never yet (until now) been let down. This time...is

the exception that makes the rule. If you are thinking of eating here...unless you are a BIG fan of this particular fashion....dont.

Great View !

If you are really hungry, this is not the place to come. The portions are small, the food is good but not very special. You are paying more for the views , the great design and the good looking staff.
