We were served a delicious 7 course meal with wine pairing in this atmospheric and unpretentious restaurant. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was really special and perfectly coordinated. The mackerel and pollock tasted so fresh I can only assume they were swimming...that morning. Really special evening, not one to forget. Thank you for such an unforgettable evening.More

This was our second time at Aspic - we had an amazing and unforgettable dinner here two years ago on our last trip to Paris and returned on this trip to Paris. I must say that everything was so perfect - like last time, each...dish was beautifully presented and executed with perfect balance of texture, composition, and taste (perfectly seasoned). We also loved how Chef Giroud made an effort to talk to each table and get to know his customers - he is so talented, personable, and pleasure to talk to. We finished each dish with complete satisfaction and admiration. We are so happy to hear that Aspic was awarded a Michelin star in January - congratulations to Chef Giroud and Aspic team! By comparison, we went to Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée the following day and decided that we liked our dinner at Aspic much more because of all the reasons above (the price not being the factor here at all but strictly based on the menu and dishes). This also was the case on our last trip.More

My wife and I were visiting Paris for the weekend and had booked this restaurant as a result of reading trip advisor reviews. We had the tasting menu with matching wines and the whole meal was stunning. The staff were friendly and attentive providing good...descriptions of the dishes in English. The main fish dish was one of the best pieces of white fish I have tasted. The octopus was delicious as was the duck. It wasn't rushed, the restaurant only seats 20 and the timings are all important. The chef thanked us for eating in his restaurant and told us that he had received his first Michelin star that week. All in all a lovely meal.More

For my wife's 30th birthday we made a reservation at Aspic. It is a surprise menu with 5-7 courses I think, and you can choose if you want wine paring with the dishes or not. We went for it and didn't regret it. The food...was delicious, and the combination of tastes was unbelievable. The wines went perfectly with everything. The staff was very nice, explaining every dish and even the chef came out sometimes to explain the dishes and talk to us. All in all, a lovely experience which we would definitely try again.More

We loved ASPIC so much that we even situated our accommodation in the 9th, which is a fantastic area with a great vibe. Its a tasting menu, just in case you didn't know, with the ability to pair wines (which I would highly recommend). Chef...Quentin Giroud once again delivered a variety of culinary delights with no dishes disappointing us. He has an outstanding ability to combine seasonal ingredients to create wonderful flavours and textures. His passion for food really shines through his dishes. We will back again.More

I discovered Aspic from TA reviews, three years ago and on each on my visits to Paris during December/January I dine twice at Aspic and it has continued to be my favourite Parisian restaurant. The food, service and overall customer treatment has been exceptional and...even with a change of front of house staff has maintained a quality service. My last visits were in December and January and when I was there in January the December menu had not fully been changed by Chef Quentin who went out his way to change some of the menu ingredients (e.g duck to guinea fowl) so the menu would be different for me that evening. During my annual visit to Paris, I dine out most nights and usually at restaurants that offer set tasting menus with matched wines, cost is not a factor in my deliberations whether to go to a restaurant or not. I dine solo, so the overall welcoming is important to my experience. I can honestly say that Aspic offers the best value compared to most other similar restaurants that I have dined at and I am always made felt extremely welcomed by all the staff including Chef Quentin. From my experience, only at Aspic, are you offered refills as part of the matched wine option and this does not occur at other restaurants. One of the other restaurants that I dined at in December 2019 also gained a michelin star, its 7 course tasting menu with matched wines was 192E compared to 107E at Aspic. Clearly from all the positive reviews, the gaining of their michelin star was deserved and I congratulate Chef Quentin and all his staff including previous front of house Vincent. I can't wait to dine with you again in December.More

This was by far the BEST MEAL I've EVER HAD!!! It's an open kitchen, 8 table, intimate restaurant with an AMAZING tasting menu. It's a chef's choice menu and the chef doesn't disappoint! My gf and I ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairing...and LOVED everything. Little things like lime butter added such sparks to wake up your taste buds. Each course had balance, cohesion, and the flavors played perfectly together. This chef is exceptional and he should get a Michelin star soon! I purposely waited to write this review until after my lunch today at Septime, a Michelin star restaurant, and I can say with confidence that Aspic had better flavors that excited your taste buds and brought you joy. Let me also add that the chef serves plates throughout the dinner and talks to each guest at the end of service. I will return to Paris just to eat at this restaurant again! Thank you chef Quentin, I hope you get a star soon!!!More
