Can we eat well in Paris without reservations?

This is my first trip to Paris and I've been restaurant reading reviews on TripAdvisor. It seems that most restaurants are rated at 4 out of 5 stars, more so that any other city I've visited in the US. Because we weren't planning on spending over $100 for the two of us for most of our meals, we thought we'd be able to just stroll until we got hungry, then check the posted menus and pick a little bistro or cafe since they are apparently mostly very good. But... I'm having second thoughts on this plan and am thinking that the same people who eat at bad restaurants in the US and love them are also reviewing restaurants in Paris. :)

So...do you think the quality of most places to eat in Paris is really that exceptional that we will not be disappointed by the no reservations approach? Or should I rethink this strategy?
Thank you!
