Excellent food

Good value for money. Very nice food and ambiance. Worth a visit and the set menu if worth the value. After 22:30 gets even cheaper.

The restaurant is very old Parisian style. It is a great place to celebrate special occasions. Servers were unfortunately typical French (aka doesn't crack a smile) and the food... I have definitely had better at smaller, less well-known establishments. But if you're more into the environment, this is the place to be.

Tonight I went here with my husband amazing night... The food excellent, ice cold champagne, onion soup, beetroot and goats cheese salad, my MR had the fillet steak cooked to perfection with pepper sauce, and my chicken was fabulous. Washed down with red wine.. Service was excellent. We will return thank you

Had a table of 10. Everyone really enjoyed all the food. I had fois gras and sole, with some green beans and chips - excellent! Service was generally attentive and quite good for a casual restaurant. We had several wines and all were very enjoyable. I highly recommend Le Grand Colbert and look forward to a return visit.

My boyfriend and I read about this place in lonely Planet Paris. After lookoing it up on trip advisor it sounded good. So, we went from Rue du Pont Neuf and meet a waitor who looked at us rather suspiciously and asked us if we had a reservation. Which we didn't. At around 7:30 pm. No-one was there. Then we... More

The ambience, service and wine selection was great. Stick with the roast chicken, the fish and escargot were not fresh. Will go again due to location and it's very Parisian. Loved that the movie Something's Gotta Give was filmed there!

Beautiful dining room and great atmosphere, with good service. However I found the food a little disappointing, in particular my friends calves liver, which was so sweet, she couldn't eat it, it was accompanied by dauphinoise potatoes which had not a hint of garlic and no seasoning apart from too much nutmeg which made it resemble the flavour of rice...

We really enjoyed our lunch here, the Fine Apple tart with ice cream was just amazing! We'd definitely return here.

Great place off the beaten path. Food and service was outstanding. We had fish, steak, salads, veggies and dessert. By far one of the best places we ate while in Paris.

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
