Based on delightful experience a few years ago--both food and service--we brought friends for last night in Paris. Food was disappointing. Sole meniure (40 euro) was not as good as what I make at home. Service was poor. We ordered drinks, but requested glass of wine three times, and it was delivered after salad. Carafe of water was emptied and... More

We are traveling with friends who wanted to visit this restaurant.We made reservations and were greeted upon our arrival with a smile. Olives and chips arrived while we made our wine selection. The ladies went with the chefs selection of red...the men couldnt decide...the server brought two tastes of white, before the men decided...now, thats good service! The meal of... More

Who wouldn't love this place? It has everything a person not living in Paris or France can imagine in a French brasserie. The oh so illustrious art déco design. The French waiters decked in traditional black and white attire. And a menu that is so sooooo French! Everything you ever wanted to try in French cuisine is here from Onion... More

Well, my friend and I had high hopes for this place because of the movie and we were really eager to try it out and experience a nice dinner out. We tried to book ahead of time, but the time slot we would have wanted was all booked up for the next 2 days. Sigh. Great. Before we went, we... More

I asked my partner where she would like to spend her next birthday, days later she told me that in the movie "Something's Go To Give" Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton went to a restaurant in Paris and that's where she would like to be. We managed to book from Adelaide and the experience was well worth it. The atmosphere... More

I had a travel person book me a dinner at this restaurant and quite frankly had never heard of its famed notoriety until I arrived with my group. From the moment we entered the dining room we were treated outstanding. The server, management and staff fulfilled all needs and the food was outstanding. Definitely a great setting for a business...

Decided to see for ourselves what is so "Gran" about Le Gran Colbert. So, made a reservation using "Le Fork". Sit back and let me tell you about our first dinner in Paris. We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Our waiter Francois was delightful and quite humorous. Give your French a try, if not your waiter (who also speaks... More

Given some of the negative reviews, I was somewhat loath to visit this restaurant. However, my wife is a great fan of 'the movie" and she convinced me to go. Also, Paris does have limited choice at Sunday lunch time. I was very pleasantly surprised. There was a nice cosy ambience to the place service was efficient and friendly and... More

Really regret having chosen it for our last night in Paris. Female, Asian waiter - sorry, French male fits the vibe better - perfectly nice and decently capable but a bit of a bummer. Food not on par with New York and we had a far better meal at La Fontaine de Mars. Atmosphere not even special. Stupid waste of... More
