Has anyone been here, is it good?

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

      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.

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

          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.
