Spring, Septime, or Sola?

Hi, all,
I was looking for recommendations for restaurants that start with the letter 'S'..... ;)

I'm having a hard time deciding where to book for dinner in Paris two weeks from now. We're there for only two nights, and we'll be going to CAJ for one of those. It's tough deciding between going back to a place that one has enjoyed many times and trying something new, but I am thinking that since we have one base covered, we should try something new the other night.

I'm unclear about Spring and Septime - they seem slightly controversial, and I'm not sure why. Or am I just reading into the normal mix of reviews of any restaurant? Also, I read here that the chef from Spring left - is that a reason not to go there?

Sola sounded intriguing. But it sounds like Paris doesn't have great Japanese food, so, coming from a city that does, will I likely find Sola disappointing, versus a more French place?

One last question: I remember eating at Paul Bert years ago and thoroughly enjoying it. Sounds like the chef has a new place, 6 Paul Bert. Would folks recommend that?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
