Was in Paris late July this year. A friend of mine just visited the city and gave me a list of restaurants she went. I booked Josephine for lunch not knowing much about it. Once I got there and saw a valet outside I knew this place would be interesting. The moment I sat down I was given a glass of white (free of charge). I'm guessing that this is a traditional thing. The menu comes and its all in French (turns out there's an English menu), so I simply asked what's good. The waiter pointed to the Veal, "It's very good" he said. I ordered it even though it was 43 euros. I also ordered a half order of house pate. Long story short, the pate was fabulous. Then comes the was absolutely the best piece of meat I've had in my 30 years of existence, even the mash potatoes that came with it was superb. I savoured every bite and was extremely glad I didn't cheap out on not ordering it. The only pity was that I saw an absolutely delicious looking Napolean being served at other tables, and I didn't get it because it was a 30minute wait (it said on the menu but I had the French one). So make sure you get that too because I basically saw everyone else get it. Bottom line, if you like classic French food, go there. This place made the other places I went in Paris pedestrian (I went to modern French places after that). Really try it out!

Fair, huge portions, very expensive. Food is decent, but should be shared. We took half home. To reiterate- prices would be less offensive if the portions are shared. Only Americans eating

Es un clásico bistró entre los clásicos. Para no perderse : su confit de pato, o el filete de lenguado guisado con verduras y vino (sole bonne femme)

We had a lovely lunch at Dumonet's on May 21st last and enjoyed it thoroughly including the "pousse cafes" offered by Monsieur Dumonet. Our waiter, Thierry, was very solicitous and did everything to make us happy. We came in late, so by the time the desserts came, we were the only 3 diners in the room. The only black mark in this experience was the way they dissed their neighbor restaurant: "Le bien decide" by G. Depardieu. Apparently we made the mistake of saying we had made reservation there for that very evening, and Thierry and Dumonet were adamant to have us try another restaurant supposed to be much better. We were sent to a lackluster dinner in a bistro near the gare Montparnasse, where Thierry said he had worked many years. It was a very bad choice and rather petty from Dumonet to try to stir us away from Le Bien Decide. After all we already had our meal in his restaurant and were not planning to come back so why not be a good sport and let us eat next door?? Lesson learned: do not ask your waiter for a recommendation in front of his boss.

We went here twice during our stay in Paris. The Grand Marnier souffle is amazing and the waiters are a lot of fun!
