Only lives of fame ... dispense! Beautiful and classic environment ... and only! The food does not justify the fame achieved after the film "Something's Gotta Give." The famous onion soup is only reasonable...as well the chicken. Not worth the BCR (benefit-coasr ratio)!

A friend told me to go here and I'm so glad we did! My Mum and I went as we wanted somewhere nice to celebrate what would've been my Gran's birthday and had a lovely time. The atmosphere is very nice with lots of French people, not just a load of tourists! The staff were delightful and offered to book... More

We could not pass up trying this place since it was featured in one of our favorite movies. It was better than amazing. I had the chicken dish and it was flavor packed and very tender. Ambiance was perfect and the bottle of wine was one of the best we've had. Highly recommend this place, just make sure you make... More

We held our company Christmas lunch at Le Grand Colbert - though we had to have it on January the 17th as pre Christmas was too busy for us to get together then. Absolutely a quintessentially Parisian retaurant! We were well looked after, the food was great ( the Oytsers were superb!) and the decor and ambience was delightful. Did... More

Loved it! We 'found it by chance'. Usual story. The Paris shootings had just happened about 3/4 hour before. Terrible. We had seen the news unfold in a cafe near Sacre Coeur. I wasn't really hungry, but, as I like to say sometimes, 'I'll have a look' ! I am glad I did. I hadn't heard of this place, it... More

Hesitant to have dinner here, since the movie Something's Gotta Give placed it squarely on the American tourist map. We were quite pleased with the goldwn ambience and the attentive staff. The food was excellent....we had help choosing an excellent red wine...and the staff helped us with speaking English rather than have us struggle with French. From start to finish... More

Have been to this restaurant many times,even before it was shown in that film,but it seems to rest on its laurels.The food,service and ambience is all second rate now.The head waiter seems to treat his patrons as if they have trodden in something.We will not be going back,there are many other restaurants in Paris with offhand service but better tasting...

Waitstaff - aloof and indifferent. Famous roast chicken - dry. Decor - a bit tacky - movie posters. Skip it!

My wifes favourite movie is 'somethings gotta give', as a special treat we visited the restaurant to experience the dining experince of the movie. We arrived at 1400 for a late lunch. We had a two course meal at 30euro each, which for us is a special occassion price. I ordered the roast chicken dish and the desert specialty- rumba.... More
