  1. Thanks for this! I'm staying right near there next month and duck is one of my favorite things to eat!

      Boy, it looks like a bunch of us are going to be in Paris in March and we'll all be headed for Le Petit Canard. Two questions: 1) Will I be welcomed if I am eating alone? and 2) do they take reservations? I am willing to eat early or late (as I usually do when going solo. I hate to take up a table at prime time).

      1. re: Paul

        I had dinner there alone and I felt quite welcome -- when I declined dessert because I couldn't eat another bite having gorged on duck, the owner (I assume) said he was open til 2 and I was welcome to stay until I was hungry again. They were never full while I was there (on a weeknight in October).

    2. A very interesting way to present reviews, though torturous. We both got home late from work and the fridge is empty. Looking at your photos made the situation worse. We will be in Paris in March so these reviews are very helpful.

      1. Perceptor, I *rarely* check this board but something told me to go here today, and well, glad that I did! Everything about that place made it look like an amazing find in Paris.

        I never feel a hint of jealousy when I vicariously experience your posts (ok, maybe Urasawa); however, this one made me green w/ envy knowing that you were in PARIS! Thanks again.

        1. thanks for the magnifique report and glorious photos. can't wait to go back and experience this place!

          1. I'm so happy to see another opinion on this place! I posted about it last fall, but as I said in my report, since I didn't have much experience with Paris restaurants, I didn't have much of a yardstick to judge my experience by.
