We went to Le Grand Colbert for my sister's 60th birthday, and could not have been happier. Our waiter, Francois, was fantastic - he seemed to anticipate our every need without hovering. We were all very happy with our food, and they even created a customized salad for one of my sisters. The potatoes Dauphine were to die for. We... More

Slip past the quaint shops in the galleries of the Palais Royal, pass the big glass windows of the Michelin-starred Grand Vefour out into a narrow street and into the rue Vivienne. There you will find Le Grand Colbert (no relation) a delightful remnant of old Paris. The black suited doorman ushers you into an atmosphere of red plush, potted... More

Me and my husband went here for my 50th birthday. This restaurant is known from the film "Something´s gotta give", starring Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. it was really a nice and romantic evening. The service was excellent and the food and wine outstanding! Next time we´re in Paris, we´ll be there for sure :-)

Group of 8, with reservation for 6 pm (early by Paris standards), and only one check. We were seated easily in a nice location and enjoyed a three course dinner with wine, etc. Food was quite good, servings large. However, we had to flag the waiters down for every interaction. Once we had placed our orders, we waited at least... More

We originally came to this restaurant before the movie even came out. Food is superb, and portions generous. Restaurant dates from the gay 1890's, and is virtually unchanged. We come here every time we come to Paris as it is a truly wonderful dining experience. (BTW, if you are waiting for the restroom, the movie is playing outside on two... More

This place gets lots of decent reviews and its easy to see why. Building is lovely in design and a treat to sit in. Service formal but helpful in both English and French. Food very tasty though not particularly imaginitive, and a trifle pricey for what it was.

Service was ok, nice waiter, unfortunately a head maitre'd dude was rather surly. Here to celebrate a birthday, and their overall attitude & presentation of Bday "candle in a cream puff" was disappointing at best. We are still sitting here and waiting for our bill. We R wondering if they will be kind enough to call a cab since we... More

Ok Le grand Colbert. We decided to go here because of the movie Somethings gotta give. The reviews were pretty good. This is French dining from the 1940s. The problem is its somewhat snobby . Not overly friendly. The food was good not great. We started with 6 oysters and 6 escargot. Oysters were fresh however not shucked very well.... More

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.
