We were here with a large group and yes, they are equipped to handle the large group and yes, by and large the wait staff was friendly, if not extremely hurried. Two complaints: 1) The food was not very good. For example, one night we had Chicken Cordon Bleu. The chicken was pressed meat. It was what you would see if you cut a McNugget in half. That sounds awful, but it is an accurate statement. I don't know if this is what they would serve an individual couple coming in vs. a group, but I can only speak to my experience. The other meals were a bit better, but still not very good at all. 2) We were very rushed. The staff served overly quickly, almost throwing plates down in front of you. There were a few waiters who were very, very friendly and tried to make the experience a little nicer (successfully), but by and large the service was just geared to get us in and out. I hate to say this, but nothing could have said "not in Paris" more than the meals we had here. Of the many meals we had with our group over two weeks, this was the least good. I would never choose to go back here given a choice.
I agree with the previous reviewer on all counts. We ate here with a large group and the food was not good and service was just OK. I would not eat here if given a choice. It is located in a questionable neighborhood and students had to unload the buses right into a busy street.
