We saved Le Grand Colbert for our last dinner in Paris because I had heard so many wonderful things about the it, but unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. Le Grand Colbert is very pretty and Parisian (though we were seated in the front of the restaurant which was somewhat dull and not in the central bar area which is... More

We had a late lunch here and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Service and food were perfect. My roasted chicken was amazing and my husband was so delighted with his beef dish that he still talks about it. Desserts were amazing. Expensive, but worth it, with a lovely French ambiance.

My hubby booked this restaurant as a surprise, and it was a lovely treat. The decor is beautiful, the staff pleasant, the food lovely... As long as you judge it as a little bistro you will enjoy it here, we were surrounded by French families which added to our Parisian experience. Only downside it was very hot when we visited... More

I paid 180 euros cash with four fifty euro bills each. Five minutes later a girl comes back and tells me that i gave her three 50 Euros bills and one 10 Euros and that I still owed money. I told here and showed her that I only had 50 Euros bills in my wallet and that I had checked... More

I know this is a tourist attraction restaurant. I also know that people don't go here because it's not "Parisian". It's honestly one of the best restaurants in Paris. I honestly left with no complaints about the food nor the service. My one complaint is the prices are high but the food is so worth it. The portion sizes are... More

If you want a truly Parisian dining experience then reserve at Le Grand Colbert. The ambiance is classic French. I love all the brass and mirrors. The service is always impeccable. The food is sooo delicious. I had one of their summer specials, the lobster with mayonnaise. I've never eaten lobster with mayonnaise before and was a bit leery of... More

This restuarant has certainly earned five stars in my book. It is not cheap but the food is phenomenal. If you go to Paris you must pay them a visit. It was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert, nothing bad to say.

Didn't like this place at all. A very grand premises which doesn't deliver on any front other than its looks. We dined here late on a Sunday night. Having arrived at 9:30pm we were asked to wait at the bar (for around 15 minutes) whilst our table was prepared.... this despite the fact that the place was about 20% full... More

I have enjoyed several fantastic evenings at Le Grand Colbert in the past and long before it became the famous "Something's Got to Give" restaurant. So on a recent trip with my boyfriend we reserved a special night at Le Grand Colbert and asked a foodie friend from London to join us. It truly has quite the beautiful ambiance that... More

Came here without a reservation for dinner and were seated right away even though restaurant appeared busy. Waiters were friendly and prompt. Food was good.
