Allard - Let the Debate Begin!

My husband and I always have had one dinner per Paris trip at Allard; admittedly, the last two times
were a disappointment - the food was not that great and it seemed to be in decline. So, it is not on the list for our upcoming trip; however, we are having pangs of nostalgia and want to make sure
our assessment is accurate and up-to-date. Comments? Opinions? thanks

  1. If you yourself know that you are going for sentimental reasons and not for the food, you should go. Simply because nobody can or should talk you out of it. Like all of us, you have to arrive all by yourself at the conclusion that You Can't Go Home Again.

      I was hoping the restaurant had improved since our last visit 3 years ago - wishful thinking, huh?

        Me think that you taste and palate might have "improved" but the restaurant (this one and others) did not changed at all.

          I agree. Jmk, you may need to move on instead of waiting for one of us to give you the answer you want to hear. :-(
          Go to one of the many wonderful bistros and start a brand new unique memory.
