I would say to date it was the best meal I've had in Paris. Funky atmosphere. Delicious adventurous cooking. I'm a fan.

Hate to say this but I'm no longer a fan.  


Seriously guys what happened?  The previous times I've visited you were brilliant.  Every time we had time in Paris we make a point of dining here.  This time it was disappointment.  Apart from the mandarin sorbet and the excellent bread & butter, the other dishes were lacklustre or overflavoured.  


The wine by the glass were a let down... we had to send back the first one offered to us.  The next ones weren't great either (but we kind of gave up).  We've had organic and biodynamic wines before so it wasn't a case of unfamiliarity with their character.  The table next to us also questioned their wine. 


The plus side was that our waiter and the girl who brought us bread and water were nice.  


Yes it was a shame that the dinner was a letdown as this time we had a friend with us whom we couldn't wait to try Bones.


We sincerely hope this was just an aberration and not a sign of decline in your otherwise high standards.
