Wonderful art nouveau restaurant. Staff were very courteous and helpful and service was first class. Excellent food from extensive menu, this was one of the highlights of our stay in Nancy. Prices very reasonable - we inadvertently ordered three items between us which were also on one of the set menus. When the bill came we were charged only the set menu price for these items. Very fair trading. This is an essential part of a visit to Nancy, highly recommended.

You know you are in for something special as soon as you walk into the dining room. The rooms screams ultra conservative rich country France circa late 19th Century. I doubt you will find any new cutting edge recipients but you find oodles of classic French cooking that has stood the test of time.

The price for two at lunch is about standard for France (€75 including two glasses of wine) for lunch. I thought this cost was reasonable as we had three courses including one coffee.

The service was efficient if somewhat perfunctory, but no cause for complaint. In summary, if you want a big lunch attended by professional service at a reasonable price, I can commend L’Excelsior.

Because my recent trip to Nancy was to view everything Art Nouveau I made a point to eat here. The decore is beautiful. But because it is also very expensive, I stopped in one morning for breakfast. I had coffee, juice and several pastries for a relatively modest price.

What a great dining room. A complete eyeful. The atmosphere here is grand. The waiters all dress in black with extra long aprons. Very classic. An experience!

The food was good, about average for a decent French restaurant. Don’t expect exceptional. We had salmon and chicken dishes and they were fine. They offer some elaborate lobster & seafood platters that looked great but were also expensive.

Service was an issue. Like a previous reviewer said, our waitress was overwhelmed and made mistakes with the order and bill. We had to ask for corrections.

Classical French dining in an Art Deco environment. The food was as it should be: classical French with few surprises but good food), however we were unlucky to be served by multiple waiters, and consequently there were a few service mistakes (e.g. they forgot to serve water, fetch water, and when the bill arrived there were some minor mistakes due to the lack of internal communication)
