Food in Paris?! Recommendations please

I will be traveling to Paris in August, I have my hotel booked and my sightseeing all planned but I am looking for any recommendations for restaurants, pastry shops, cafes, etc. (anything from reasonably priced eats to nicer places).

If you have been there recently, please let me know of any recommendations for Paris eats that you may have!

Look at the RS guide book and then look them up on line to see their menus. Make reservations whenever possible, many of the Paris restuaruants are very small and going for dinner can be tricky if you don't have a reservation. Your hotel will make the reservation for you and going in August make sure the resaurant is open as many close in August, also make sure they are open if it is a Sunday, many are closed on a Sunday.

Have a great time! Love Paris!!!

We have several favorites on rue de Seine (6th)
Cosi. Great interesting sandwiches on incredible focaccia type bread baked on site. Don't pass up the apple crumble for dessert.
Freddy's. Next door to Cosi for great wine selection and inventive interesting small plates(tapas like).
Fish. Across the street from Cosi lovely place, great food and wine.
Relais Comptoir. On Odeon
Le Coup Chou (don't have the address handy). We spent New Year's Eve there this year ( don't pass up the apple Tartine)
I know I am misspelling but I think you can follow the list despite that :).
Also. Patrica Wells ( American born author of tons of cookbooks, food journalist and fantastic French restaurant reviewer) has a great App. "A food lovers Guide to Paris" We haven't been steered wrong.
Ooo just remembered Pizza Chic on rue de Mezieres. Fabulous pizza and salads (reservations recommended they get packed )
Well, unless you are going to be there for a month I will stop.
Bon vacance

After avoiding Le Relais de l'Entrecote on previous visits, thinking it was too touristy, we finally went to the location at 15 rue Marbeuf last year. We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice! The only thing they serve is steak frites, so if you are not a meat eater this will not be for you. The meal will consist of salad, steak cooked to your preference with an amazing sauce, fries and if you choose wine
and/or dessert. There are no reservations, you just queue up outside. There are other locations in Paris, this one is between the Seine and the Champs Elysees.
