SquareMeal Review of Le Paris Grill

Arrayed like so many hunting trophies, the severed neckties displayed at Le Paris Grill are a not-so-subtle reminder that it’s best to go open-necked if you’re visiting this venerable family-run steakhouse on your birthday. Tradition doesn’t end there: steak tartare is prepared at the tableside, cheeses are served from the trolley, and the menu has a distinctly French accent – from snails in garlic and parsley butter to the chalked-up daily specials. We rate the charcoal-grilled beef here: Irish fillet with béarnaise sauce, chateaubriand or the 750g rib to share, served with hand-cut chips. Wines are predominantly French and relatively affordable. If the comfortable but windowless dining room emits a certain function-suite anonymity, the same can’t be said for the delightfully snug basement bar, where you can tuck into steak sandwiches washed down by bottled French beer. A second Le Paris Grill opened at 6 Little Britain in 2014.

Service was attentive as requested, due to time limitations on our part, and the food was very good. The tuna steak was well prepared although perhaps a little more of the tasty blood orange salad would have been nice. We continue to enjoy the experience.

As always, a good venue for good French food, good service and a pleasant atmosphere, where a business conversation can be had. The halibut was excellent.

Very good country style French food, with good size portions. The skate was very good, as was the steak. Service is pleasant and relaxed, in tune with the restaurant. Overall very good.

I have eaten here a few times and find it consistently good for a business lunch. The tables are not too close, so conversation can be had without having to shout. The food is well prepared and the portions generous, in particular the veal. Service is good, and relaxed.

Food is really good and the venison was excellent. Portions are large and so we all left full. Service was knowledgable.

It does what it says on the tin – brilliant steaks, interesting specials and good value (especially the wine list). I had the steak tartare which was prepared in front of me and was excellent (but a very large portion). My companion had coq au vin which he said was very tasty. The tables are well spaced so there was privacy – but it did get quite noisy as it filled up. The bar downstairs is worth a visit for a pre-lunch drink as well.
