Made very welcome. The staff were great, explained the menu well. The entrees, seafood chowder and scallops were beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. The mains, rib eye steak and salmon were also presented well and tasted great. A lovely meal. We will be back. Thank you.

The atmosphere of the restaurant, as well as the staff working there is irreproachable. The only down would be the snails, as a french person I had high hopes that they would taste like home but they did not. The rest of the food was great and I will still recommend the restaurant.

A pleasant surprise from the left bank only disappointment was the French onion soup which was returned and taken off our bill. We had the steak for two perfectly cooked with ample sides without extra payment!!! We dinned at Rata two weeks ago and I would rate left bank way better cooked food better portions and value for money well done the Left Bank team!!

We loved the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant and the quality of the service. We loved their "Bonsoir, good evening"! Each staff member was very considerate and made sure that we got every thing we asked for and even more. We received good advice on the food and wine matching.
We were offered dips and a bread selection on arrival and the starters we were recommended were delicious. Especially the perfectly cooked scallops, served with sauteed mushrooms and fresh spinach leaves! Then we ordered their signature dish Chateaubriand, a pink roasted beef tenderloin with ratatouille, frites, sauteed mushrooms, café de Paris butter (mixed with shallots and herbs, heaven!), baby carrots... As a dessert, we ordered a crepe suzette flambéed with Grand marnier, caramel and orange sauce and slices, absolutely amazing, taste and show!
We will definitely come back again to try the duck and for the lovely service!

What a wonderful experience we had for our very first time with First Table.
The staff is very lovely, helpful and made us feel welcome from the start. Menu is quite diverse so anyone can find something they can enjoy.
We had snails, scallops, duck... everything tasted like heaven!
We also had some French red wines which tasted amazing. Overall great experience and I would recommend this restaurant to absolutely anyone who loves good wine and good food!

A good experience. It is a cosy but comfortable place for a fine dinner or a drink in Sofitel. Service is really good and professional. Food is beyond our expectations. Do try the lamb kidney, which is very tasty. Will recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet but tasteful place.

We loved the ambience and the food was excellent. The service was a standout especially as the staff forgot to give us our 50% discount and later called us to rearrange a refund to our cards. We can highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Beautifully presented entree mains and desserts. The chateau Briand for two was rare and tender and was very generous .
The staff were very helpful and we enjoyed chatting with them, Pauline who was from Normandy, France, was charming.
The restaurant suited the cooler evening as there is no outside dining that we could see. Most enjoyable..
