"I went there for a brunch date and was looking forward to sitting at a table in the open window area. When I arrived, I was told they were closed for a private event and they could set up a table for me in their sandwich shop. First they set one in the middle of it and then we got a corner table. It was a terrible ambiance. I would have preferred they advised of such and I would have gone elsewhere. I was disappointment and won't be back there other than for a coffee or drink."

"I eat at La Defense for dinner typically several times a year when in Brooklyn, NY. It's a very nice atmosphere inside. Not a large place but quite comfortable. Not a lot of people there when I had dinner, maybe 20 but people at a table yelling to people at the bar throughout my meal created way too much noise in a place that is generally noisey to start with. A decent menu but "homemade" guacamole was rather bland while the steamed mussels were good but not really even warm. Service was excellent and very friendly."

"Food was good, however, the online menu (both website and OpenTable menu) where completely different. The waiter said they changed the menu 2 years ago, but it has yet to be updated online, or with openTable... Parents were in town, we just moved to the neighbourhood, and I felt like something simple (burger), but it wasn't there. While I was disappointed at the menu change, the food seemed good all around. Took forever to get the bill, even though it was empty."

"Food is delicious (we were there for brunch). Noise... Good place to have a conversation with your meal. Service was inconsistent...first person I met just walked away but hostess was sharp. Too long to wait for check. Decor.... An update of furniture away from cafeteria plastic would improve what is otherwise very smart"

"The service was good, our waitress made sure we were comfortable and even let us taste the bloody Mary before ordering it. It was very tasty! The noise level was a bit high for a Sunday brunch in my opinion and the food itself was a bit overpriced for what it was. But overall a good experience."

"You wouldn't know such a great place exists in that quiet corner. Great staff and great food. I would definitely go back again if I am in that neighborhood again."

"I made a reservation for 16 TWO weeks in advance. On the day of the dinner, I called to increase the number to between 18 and 20. The reservation was for 6:30 and most people were in place by then. One simple drink order (a draft beer and a cranberry seltzer) didn't arrive for over 30 minutes, and my guest ended up going to the bar to ask for the drinks; he wasn't treated well by the bartender, who made it seem like he was annoying her. Food delivery was absurdly slow and the servers didn't have any idea who got what. One server walked back and forth three or four times with an appetizer asking "Did someone order the....?" Because of some of the servers accents, we weren't even sure what they were saying, so couldn't even know what the dish was. At 8:15 I asked the manager to at least bring some bread baskets. Many of the meals weren't served until after 8:30.
I think what threw them off was that we asked for about 10 different checks, and people on specific checks were not seated together. The head server ended up going person to person at the end of the evening (between 8:45 and 9:00) and asking each person what they had and then making up their bill. If we had known that this was going to be such a problem, we could have made other arrangements (like each group on four or six sharing one check and then we'd split it up.)"

"I recently went to LaDefense for dinner on a whim after work with a colleague and it was quite perfect. The restaurant is lovely with great ambiance and that was only topped by our outstanding service and delicious food! I will definitely go back for dinner, but we are also planning to go for a work happy hour."
