On an early summer evening, when this restaurant ought to have been its most bewitching - it's a purely sensual pleasure to watch the light fade through the tree topsthat surround the elegant second-floor Directoire dining room that is one of the loveliest settings in Paris - our dinner here was a maddening catastrophe. They had no record of our reservation., but somehow we were the ones labelled remiss.  We were finally seated at a woeful table next to the busiest serving station in the dining-room. A  waitress managed to get us through a half-bottle mineral water before our starters arrived, and then decided that we should have another one with no further consultation. The menu had changed little since the last time we came, but we remembered enjoying the langoustines, now priced at an absurd 72 Euros for three, and hoped that "cooked and raw" asparagus would be pleasant.  The langoustines were certifiably flavour-free and mucked up in an insipid sauce, and the asparagus would have been  all right were it not  for a sauce that tasted as if waxed kitchen paper and butter were the main ingredients. Main courses were also a crashing  disappointment : impeccably  cooked turbot was ruined by a dreary sauce that had something to do with truffles, while dreadfully overcooked and almost tasteless sea bass came  in yet another botched sauce with rubbery bits and pieces of shellfish. Though we didn't finish any of these dishes, none of the staff saw fit to ask if there was a reason why half of each plate had been left untouched. We skipped cheese and dessert, and concluded with coffee, before being blasted by an absurd bill for a ghastly meal. Never again.
