Your thoughts please! - Cinq Mars or Le Bistro Paul Bert?

I have managed to narrow down my 'last Paris dinner' to either Cinq Mars in the 7th or Le Bistro Paul Bert in the 11th.

I know these two places are somewhat different - Cinq Mars being smaller and more chic, with Paul Bert more of a traditional, jovial bistro.

Could anyone weigh in with their two cents' worth to help me paint a better picture of what an evening would be like at both of these places (food quality, atmosphere, price, personal recs)?

I think we may try to hit Chez Denise on our first night there, not as much for the food as for the lively atmosphere. Would dinner at Paul Bert merely be more of the same? Or a different enough experience altogether?

The dinner will be for four people, including my brother-in-law's girlfriend who has never been to Paris before, and I am trying to plan a memorable evening!
