Dinner at the Eiffel Tower Reviews

It was our final night in Paris, so we wanted to make it very special. We dined at the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant. Our experience was outstanding! The restaurant opened promptly at 6:30 PM for its first seating. We were ushered to our table quickly and the odyssey began. Our service was outstanding and the food was beautifully presented and very delicious. We also enjoyed the beautiful view from the first level as we dined. Both my wife and I felt that the costs were perfect for the service and experience received. Don't miss this very special treat!

While dinner was on the expensive side, the food was excellent, service outstanding, and the view was lovely. People were either dressed casually or were dressed up.
