L'Alsace any good?

Has anyone been here, is it good?

  1. No, it is not very good. It is very touristy, the service is consequently quite cursory, and the food is mediocre. I work not far from this restaurant, and one day I found myself with no lunch plans, a vague hankering for choucroute, and a bit of time on my hands, so I went in. Very disappointing.

    If you are looking for Alsatian food like choucroute, there are plenty of better places. I'm not a big fan of the Flo group, but any of their places (e.g., Balzar, La Coupole, etc.) are much better.

    1. if that is what you want to eat l'alsaco in the 9th is fabulous and way more authentic;

      1. I thought it was good....until I got very ill to my stomach from the escargot and raw oysters (which I eat ALL the time without incident). The service was nice and the company was great, but I could see how it would definitely be a tourist spot.

        1. By the Champ-Elysées standards, it's not a bad place, and it's open 24/7.
