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.

The ambiance was nice and fancy. It's nice to say I've been to the restaurant from "Something's Got to Give" - it's quite recognizable. The meal was forgettable - except for the price! My wallet will never forget, LOL! We got the chicken, but we noticed many others ordering seafood; so perhaps this is where we went wrong!

Not the best meal i have ever had, but was the best in Paris. Had great night out with friends. Salmon appetizer was excellent and the escargot were also enjoyed. For meals we tried a wide variety of dishes. Veal piccata, lobster ravioli, lamb chops and salmon bernaise were all great. The crepe suzette and salted caramel ice cream along... More

July 17, 2014 Whilst the interior and decor was periodic and very nice, the food was mediocre; three of our guests had to send their cod dinner back to to over salting that left the dish inedible.ANother dinner entree was offered. Prices are high for middle road food. Despite the notes that said that there was air-conditioning, there was none.... More

We had many friends who recommended this place. Let me start by saying the staff was excellent and the service was top notch. My husband had the roasted chicken which was delicious and enough for 2. I had the french onion soup which was fantastic. Looking around while we ate we noticed how dusty and dirty the palms were. This... More

I have been a fan of this restaurant for years, having been at least ten times. The last time I went a year ago it was average, and having been again last Saturday night, it has now descended into your typical tourist trap with a bad attitude and insipid food. I'm French so I can give as good as I... More

We had seen the film As Good As It Gets and wanted to find a similar style restaurant to really appreciate the Parisian gastro charm. To our amazement, through trip advisor, we found the actual place. Some recent reviews where negative but that didn't deter us. They didn't have reservations for the sat night but we went along anyway (... More

After my last disastrous visit a year ago I decided to try again. Nothing has changed. It still survives on its fabulous decor and the exposure through a silly movie. This restaurant could be so great yet misses on all levels. Very poor service by waiters tired of being badgered by annoying foreign tourists. Food totally hit and miss. Some... More

Hi All, My wife is a real Francophile and believes she was French in an other life so as a result anything French [within reason and sensibility ] is good for us. Having watched many movies depicting French scenes we decided to locate the Restaurant featured in "Something's gotta give" Dianne Keaton and Jack Nicholson, and with some help from... More
