    Chartier: It's where the locals go

    This place is packed AND it's huge (it seats several hundred). Two of us went for lunch and were seated at a table for four with two strangers. No big deal but we definitely weren't expecting it (now you'll know). It's a grande place with soaring ceilings. In the 1890's it started out as a worker's canteen (bouillon) and has been open ever since.

    I had roasted (rotiserrie) chicken leg and it was quite good. My boyfriend had sausage & sauerkraut...he wasn't impressed but everyone seemed to be ordering it.

    Overall, I would say the food is average. It's classic French food at a really good price.

    Chartier: Rude waiters so why do i always go back?

    This restaurant has been a favorite for years. And although the waiters are rude and the line outside is long, it is still worth going. Maybe because of the amazing art-deco dining room or the fact that it is quite cheap or because it is so nicely crowded.. i don't know.

    I guess it would have to be Chartier in the 8th arrondissment. Good food, good service, reasonably priced and GREAT ambiance. Probably one of the most popular restaurant in the whole city, I would think.
    Like I said, the atmosphere here is what this place has really going for it. It is jammed with people so you may be seated with a stranger, which can be sometimes good and sometimes bad. The dining room, though, is great - hasn't changed probably since the forties. It used to be a workman's restaurant and it still has some of it's now defunct features such as drawers where the workers used to store their napkins!

    Favorite Dish: The old stand-by 'Steak-Frites'!
