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

Returned here after ten years, not because of the American hype, but because of a fond memory. Despite being noisy, with tiny tables, the fresh shell fish is good, whilst expensive, meat courses no better than average pub grub. The service was fine, the white wine selection minimal and the Chablis expensive. Some memories are best left as memories.

We were expecting a wonderful ending to our trip to Paris at Le Grand Colbert. The evening was a complete disappointment! The restaurant is beautiful but not as grand as we thought it would be. One could see it was once lovely but now a little worn and dirty. Instead of lovely fresh flowers they have dusty plastic flowers possibly... More

We couldn't be more pleased! The atmosphere is lovely, the staff are all professional, warm and engaging, and the food and wine were delicious. On our first night, Valentine was our server and did and excellent job. Tonight, we had multiple servers, whose names I don't know, but who were exceptionally polite, knowledgeable and great fun. The maître d'hôtel, M.... More

Felt like an upscale New York diner from the 50s. Service was subpar and food was just okay. Had the french onion soup and crusty goat cheese salad. Husband got the soup as well and the skate fish with capers. He said his was pretty good.

Had a spectacular meal here, with the exception of the crème brulee. If you enjoyed the movie "Something's Gotta Give" you will love it. Either way, it was a fantastic restaurant. The roast chicken was amazing. Wonderful atmosphere.
