Going in two weeks with my girlfriend. Suggestions on restaurants if I should make reservations? I am staying near the Louvre. Thanks!

Agree with these. Not far from Notre Dame.
On the picturesque Ile Saint Louis. We had a great meal there a couple of years ago. Worth a visit for sure
they are on the Metric system. You will not see terms like qtr pounder ... or half pounder.
(I learned that from a Travolta movie ... hmmm if he isn't the better actor he may be the more educational one?).
check out a couple of Lebanese Restaurants. I don't know names, but there are several quite close to where you are staying. Also, on the Left Bank and other neighborhoods, there will be lots of informal cafes that are great for lunch/brunch.
on rue de sieni. Best leg of lamb I have ever eaten, and it's not even close. There was another lunch spot with really good burgers and desserts that I cannot remember. It was a guy's name but I am blanking.
Which is a beef stew that is incredible, then go to Aj Bourguignon du Mariais.
Also very close to the Louvre is Paris’s best pastries shop. It’s called Angelina’s. It awesome. Best you will find. Go before 10 am or it will be packed (Parisians love to have mid morning coffee/pastries around this time) will be line out the door.
It’s Paris, you can’t help but stumble into good restaurants. Whatever you do, just don’t go into a Paul store and grab pastries there. Even the breakfast croissants at most hotels beat most anything Stateside.
From what I remember, L’Astrance lunch was the most accessible (ie not over 200 euro pp) among all the Michelin restaurants.

Semilla was tremendous.
the other place is called Paul Bert, great little lunch spot. They have some deal during the week for lunch. I don't remember it specifically but it was pretty cheap.
Don’t ask why. Just don’t do it.
Inexpensive and very good and Lenny Kravitz likes it as well. L'As Du Fallafel
