good food

This restaurant goes back in time as a traditional french restaurant. Food and service was very good...we went at an off hour..3:00 pm. The only dislike was a friendly mouse roaming around.

I loved it because starts to serve from 12h. But better to book a table as it is well known so many clients are used to come. The menu is long and typically french cuisine traditional. Ambient is old style preserved and the service is professional.

Le Grand Colbert is a party restaurant. It seems like all the diners are celebrating something -- whether it be a birthday or a reunion or an anniversary. The Champagne and cocktails seems to flow in abundance at this stylish Brasserie. Chatter is loud and lively. We too were celebrating when we dined at the restaurant in November. It was... More

'Le Grand Colbert', although clearly living on it's fame derived from the "Somethings gotta give" movie is excellent value and provides a very good user experience, even for a cynic. The décor (in upmarket Brasserie style) food and wines and other drinks plus the service were all excellent. The best meal had in France this trip!

Because of the reputation of this restaurant and some reviews my husbsnd and I decided to give it a try. In a city with so much choice this restaurant did not live up to it's name. Sure the setting is charming and staff attentive but the food itself was just average. My veal was bland and a little tough. We... More

Family of five decided to go out for nice dinner and pre-read reviews for this restaurant - bit mixed but decided to go. Beautiful decor, good service at beginning when restaurant not busy. Sadly food was very ordinary and service was lacking once restaurant filled up. Staff friendly but this was only good thing apart from decor. Paid €388 which... More

Very nice and discrete service, excellent menu and very good food. Good balanace of classic and state of the art menu. I liked the beetroot salad and a colleague was excited about the fois gras as a starter. Good choices for the main dishes.

A very nice restaurant to have dinner with family or as a couple. Very polite staff. Good food. Steak with pepper sauce and Le Grand Colbert salad recommended. Be sure to book a table beforehand.

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.
