  • Brasserie Balzar: Not a Good Experience

    by dlr3638 Written Nov 21, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very ordinary and overpriced. The waiters were nice enough but the maitre de was extremely arrogant and unpleasant. We were made to feel very unwelcome and in retrospect I wish we had walked out. We had planned on having dessert and champagne to celebrate our last dinner in Paris, but didn't want to linger in such a crowded and uncomfortable place.

    The meat was well prepared but the side dishes were not. A "vegetable" soup tasted of only watery potatoes and squash pureed together, seasoned only with too much salt. White beans served with the lamb were very bland, only a little parsley sprinkled on them and the green beans were overcooked and also unseasoned.

    Favorite Dish: The lamb was quite tasty, tender and not overcooked, but it was the only thing that was acceptable.
