Here are The Professor's picks for restaurants near the Eiffel Tower:

Café Constant. 139, rue St. Dominique, 7th arrondissement.  Métro:  École  Militaire.  
A casual and relatively inexpensive spot near the ET.  Legendary Chef Christian Constant makes French food easy. Where else are you going to get dishes like tartare of oysters, seabass and salmon seasoned with ginger and lemon created by a Michelin-starred chef?  Or how about veal cutlet from the Basque country with white Tarbais beans?   I always have room for the dreamy Île Flotante for dessert. One of my top picks.   About €100 for two.  Website:  www.cafeconstant.com.

Les Cocottes. 135, rue St. Dominique. 7th arrondissement. Métro:  École  Militaire.  
Another Christian Constant gem.  Set up almost like an American diner with a French slant, it is casual and not expensive.  The unique main dishes are served en cocotte, or casserole style.  You are likely to see Chef Constant there, and most likely, he would love to chat with you.  Website: www.maisonconstant.com/les-cocottes.


Bonus:  Near the Eiffel Tower is rue Cler with plenty of casual restaurants along with markets and shops.  The food is not the same quality as you will find with the picks above, but it is good.
