Jules Verne Restaurant

Located in the Eiffel Tower itself, and used for many a movie setting, reservations are certainly required here!!! This classic Parisian restaurant is noted for "haute cuisine a la Francais" from Chef Alain Reix.

i was recommended here in New York to go to your restaurant by www.NYCMOVE.com and they said it was a MUST do while in Paris if I had the extra cash, I am so glad we went, it was the MOST memorable forever...

This restaurant is TERRIBLE. The wait and the reservations never work the way they are suppose to be. The wait is forever, the staff is rude, and it is very expensive. When I mean EXPENSIVE, I mean it too. If you think this would be a great place to visit (the restaurant), don't go there.

My husband I went for our honeymoon. I had booked a reservation 3 months prior and could only get a lunch date - dinner was booked. It was cool going up the private elevator and even cooler to meet the chef. We are skateboarders and the formal dress code required us to check our skateboards at the coat check - the staff got a laugh out of that. The food was overpriced, but the portion sizes were good. The quality of the meal and, of course, the view could not be beat. I had fish, he had steak, we ate every bite. This was definately the most romantic (and expensive) lunch I've ever had. I would go back in a second, given the chance.

This is a 'must do' before you die. There is nothing else in the world remotely similiar. Do lunch here so that the lights at night are not a distraction; do a boat dinner cruise at night (reserve a table in the best section) so that the lights are an attraction.

A unique place, excellent food and so are the prices. Consider 30 € upwards for the starters and up to 60€ for the main course. But for a special occasion the best place to go.

i feel like this restaurant wasn't very good at all in my opinoin. There was a person perposing every 5 minutes and always flashes going off. The food was exellent, same with the service. I personally thought that the price was way too high! With all this said, i will certainly not go there ever again.( the bad over comes the good)

My husband & I have had lunch at the Jules Verne twice & both times it was excellent. My husband reluctantly agreed to have lunch at the Jules Verne thinking it was over rated, it wasn't. Now he's the one who wants to go back again. It was great, the view was spectacular, service very good, (although not extremely friendly), however, we weren't there to make friends with the waiter, so it was fine. So many interesting selections on the menu, I found it hard to choose. Everything was beautifully presented & tasted as good as it looked. We are planning a trip to Paris in September for our 40th wedding anniversary & have a reservation at the Jules Verne for dinner. We can't wait to see our favorite city all lit up from the Eiffel Tower. Although I made a reservation in early April for our September visit, a window seat was not available, we're very disappointed. When I called, I was told there was not a window seat available until October. I am going to try again before we leave. We're still looking forward to the Jules Verne but a window seat really is great, we had a window seat on our 1st visit. Lunch is quite expensive & I understand dinner is even more so, but I think it's an experience that should not be missed, it's unforgettable.

I love to try different restaurants and have had many great and bad experiences.. but this restaurant is by far, the BEST dining experience I've had my entire life. It was tough to get a reservation and we had to settle for lunch but it was worth every penny.

Having been to many restaurants the world over, this is among the most enjoyable experiences I've had. The service was top-notch, much more hands on than the typical French restaurant. Their wine knowledge was wonderful and very helpful. The food was very good. Is it expensive? Yes. But you're not only paying for a very good meal, but maybe the best view you'll ever have while eating. My girlfriend and I were there for her birthday and they made sure we got an window seat overlooking the Seine. (Also, Barbara Bush was there eating at the same time, but it was not the distraction, with security and all, that you would expect. The staff did not let it interfere with any one else's experience.) A very memorable experience. Also, I understand that Lunch is less formal and more relaxed. Be sure to book in advance. And try the butter - WOW. And I don't eat butter.

I booked some months in advance for my wife's birthday. They remembered and brought her a small present. Excellent meal. Superb wine. Not cheap at all - but you pay your money and take your choice! I'd go again.

My wife and I got married in Paris in 1998 and had lunch at the Jules Verne. We got the most fabolous window table (reserved just the day before), and had a meal we'll never will forget, with great champagne and service from a most servile staff. We are most certainly going back for multiple anniversaries. Having dined in all over France on many occasions, I will rate the Jules Verne at the very top of my list.

My husband and I had dinner at the Jules Verne Restaurant twice, in 1998 and 2001, celebrating special Anniversaries. In 1998, we requested if we could meet Chef Alain Reix and indeed we had that wonderful experience. We were taken near the kitchen and he came to visit with us for a few minutes and signed for me his cook book. We had the best gourmet dinner experience ever! Both times, we had excellent meals and superb service and great tables by the window for fabulous views of Paris. We hope to celebrate our 50th Anniversary at Jules Verne in 2006!

There is a brilliant view from the restauarant and the service generally is very good. One of the wine waiters was a little slap dash and splashed my water into my lunch. I didn't like ordering my desert before I had eaten anything. Overall though it ws a fantastic, romatic place, perfect for a special occasion

Equisite service and very interesting menu . My selection was intentionsally a little different. Foie Gras with Truffled Dublin Bay Pranws and leeks., followed by veal sweet breads with lobster and then Crepes with orange marmalade. Best course the desert with main a close second. Service second to none.
