  • Although the first thing that comes to mind when I hear Madeline are good French pastries in the shape of a shell that like flavor resemble plum cakes here we speak of the Church of Madeline ... that of French at least to the outside for me has absolutely nothing ... in fact ... seems like a Grecian Temple ... along the walls instead co are the statues of the Saints. Definitely the thing for which in my opinion is worth seeing this church is definitely the door ... show there are depicted the 10 commandments all in gold.

  • This is essentially a French diner. I mean, it's Paris, so you can still get escargot and oysters here, but it's of diner quality. Food and service we're fine. We wanted something light to eat and it was late, so there weren't a lot of options open. I was tired of drinking wine, and wanted to switch over to beer, but they had a pretty measly selection. I ended up drinking this weird french beer called Desperado, which ended up being a lager/tequila mix. It was alright. I think it had a decent ABV, so at least I caught a buzz.
  • This was the first place we went to when we got to Paris. We quickly realized our knowledge of the french language was none existent. We couldn't google translate fast enough. Haha. We tried our best and our waiter recognized right away and spoke enough english to help. He was friendly and patient and allowed me to practice my french. We have heard nightmare stories about how Americans are treated in France, especially if we don't speak the language. Our experience here showed us something else entirely and set the tone for the rest of our trip. We continued to try and speak the language and everyone continued to help. We plan to go back in a couple of years and will definitely take our friends back to Madeline 7. Our French will also be much better by then. Thank you!
  • Worst service I've ever had in Paris and I've been living here for 7 years!!!! Overpriced food, overpriced coffee and bad and rude waiters... the perfect combination. If I could give 0 stars, I would for sure
  • So far no complaints! We felt welcomed the minute we walked in. Service is great, French onion soup is yummy, good bottle of red wine ...so far so good...be right back...stay tuned for more...
  • Excellent service and good range of food and drinks
