As chocolate lovers we are especially fond of this historic restaurant, where the celebrated Goncourt, Renaudot and Apollinaire book awards are presented every year. In addition to delicious chocolate desserts, Drouant offered appetizing dishes and excellent service in an elegant and tranquil setting just a few steps from the department store frenzy. Every time, including this one, we have visited this restaurant we have left satisfied and looking forward to our next visit.

Wine And Spirits Details A broad selection of wines and various price options.
The cheese course was a pleasant transition from the meal to the lighter deserts. The selection of cheeses was excellent for the price. The pastry chef is a master with chocolate, with delightful Macaron and light petits fours. For a chocolate lover, the chocolate book (Quelques Feuilles “de chocolat” en hommage à Jules et Edmond), in recognition of the annual book award presented at the restaurant, is a satisfying and rich dessert that is beautiful and tasty.

Service The service staff was unobtrusive, attentive and efficient. Hardly a moment passed before our glasses were refilled or our empty plates were taken away. The assistant sommelier guided us seamlessly in our wine selection to provide a wine that could bridge the fish and lamb we chose.
