The food was absolutely amazing. The staff was great and spoke English fluently. Beautiful inside and romantic feel to the restaurant. Exactly what you expect when going to France. I would highly recommend Le Grand Colbert!

What a disappointment. We dressed up nicely for the evening and the concierge at our 5 star hotel made a reservation (10 days in advance) so we expected at least a nice table and decent service. Instead, we were greeted and ushered through the empty front room and deposited in the back room where we quickly determined that we were... More

The charm of the beautiful and well conserved dining room is probably the highlight of “Le Grand Colbert”, a famous gourmet place in Paris. The flooring, the high walls with chandeliers, mirrors and the bistro seats could easily be part of the historic heritage of Paris or at least the scenery of a film set at the end of the... More

The atmosphere prompts you when you enter to want to take a picture. We ate there twice. The onion soup and frog legs are favorite starters of mine. I had lamb chops for one meal--tender and cooked medium rare. We had the beef tenderloin for two the second time. The tenderloin was medium rare in the center only. A good... More

I don't understand why some reviewers have a problem with this atmospheric traditional French restaurant. OK it isn't Haute cuisine and it is a bit pricey but this is Paris and nothing is cheap in the 2nd arrondissement. This was my second visit in as many trips to Paris and on both occasions the staff were charm personified especially considering... More

My visit this September, against the advice of a well-travelled friend, proved two things: He was right and that locations (ie: restaurants) glamorised in films rarely deliver when tested in reality. The only thing going for this rather ‘down at heel’ establishment IS the fact it was a location in the Jack Nicholson/Dianne Keaton movie, “Something’s Gotta Give”. Indeed, the... More

We were here last week and 3 years ago. The only good draw is the liver and carmelized onions my husband loves. The wait staff is the most snooty I have met in Paris. This was where Diane Keaton at in Something's Gotta Give.

We have been to this restaurant 3 different times and have not been disappointed. One time my husband talked to the maitre d' in this private conversation and at the end of the meal I was surprised with a PLATE from the restaurant inscribed in gold lettering "The Grand Colbert" It was really fun to receive this plate. They also... More

My wife had specially requested we go here because of the movie and a friend had said it was a very nice experience. after reading the reviews I was on the fence. I realize your experience at a particular establishment has a lot to do with how you treat them as well as how they treat you. Knowing we how... More
