Disappointment

This was my third visit to Le Grand Colbert and sadly this visit did not measure up. They may have changed the menu because I didn't feel the selection was as good as the two previous visits. The food was good but nothing outstanding. The biggest disappointment was a terribly pompous host.

The service was rather slow but when the food came the beef was overcooked however there were some good highlights about the meal. The ice cream was delicious though and quickly served!

Went here for a late lunch expecting beautiful French cuisine, with a 3.8 rating we thought let's give it go.. The food was not great. Our starters were ok, two of us had a traditional onion soup, the others a salad and also a salmon dish. The mains however were very disappointing. The salted cod was so salty and rubbery... More

The meal was wonderful, the restaurant has a lovely busy & warm bistro feeling & the service was excellent. And the oysters were the best I've had!

Well it is a typical French place, in a quiet street not far from Louvre, nice décor and unlike many reviews very helpful waiters! Good food and a not unreasonable price for a city restaurant...

Looked at trip advisor for somewhere to eat and was not disappointed. We had the chiefs special which was chataubriand and dessert and it was amazing. The staff were lovely. Tripadvisor said it was expensive however we found it reasonable for the quality of the food and the service compared to others. Would highly recommend this place!!!

We had the French onion soup and the chateaubriand and both were absolutely delicious. It's pricey but the quality, atmosphere etc is definitely worth it.

The meal was worth every cent and the service was exactly how it is supposed to be. I strongly recommend the fondant and the boeuf tartare.

I go everytime I'm in Paris! Delicious Escargots! Service is OK. Got more famous and turistic since the movie Something Gotta Give. But I do enjoy it very much! Brings me good memories!

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.
