The problem is a couple (out of four couples) is insisting that Allard is the end all-be all in Paris for dinner. It's our sixth trip to France, and it is at the very bottom of our list.
Does anyone have any recent stories, either good or bad to share? Good stories are fine. We just hate to waste a night with average food, cooked and served to Americans.

For one night, your group can dine separately, no? Then everyone's happy.

IMHO, it's a solid bistro. I'd be very happy indeed to have it down my street.
Where else are you going?

Kidding aside, I'm looking forward to hearing about this terrific-sounding trip.

It has a great history but is long past its best.
Try instead l'ami jean, l'entredegeu, les papilles, etc, etc

Most of the menu selections require that two people order the same item.
We had two other people that joined us, and Allard only let us have 5 orders of veal stew for our table, even though other tables were ordering it. BTW, the room was 100% Americans.
We figured we'd go there to make Jack happy, and he was.
