Third visit to this 'famous' restaurant (so we were able to book by email - on our first visit we asked our hotel to phone). Each time it is has always been very busy ( a good sign?) but the staff cope well and very attentive and under the circumstances highly interactive. We just soak up the atmosphere (yes we... More

This is a must. Service was good, food was excellent and it gets very busy so if you go later then 7 you most likely will need reservations. I wanted to go here for my birthday ever since I saw the movie Somethings Gotta Give. So, I went and was so happy I did. I dined alone and had a... More

Beautiful decor, very good service . Very good food on the whole, though I had Filet Steak which was disappointing. This was the second poor Filet that I had in Paris and I wonder if thyey butcher their beef differently so you don't get that 'melt in the mouth' experience that you get in the U.K

Hands down, Le Grand Colbert is a pretty restaurant. But, the service was spotty, and the experience not nearly up to my expectation. I ordered the roasted chicken, and it was average. My wife orders the crab...expecting something like California-like crab. But, she was only able to salvage about 4 oz of meat after way too much work. It was... More

Le Grand Colbert didn't disappoint me or my guests. We had reservations for Friday at 8pm and I had requested a booth seat....I was seated promptly and had my booth seat. Order a bottle of Moët & Chandon and started a wonderful experience. The ambiance was fabulous! I order a wonderful beet salad, followed by Chateaubriand pour deux.....done to perfection!... More

It was the second occasion that I visited this bistro, made famous by Something's Gotta Give, this time for lunch. In all fairness, looked a little less romantic in daylight but the experience was not less pleasant. I had the fish menu together with a caraffe of house rose wine. They were both very good. It was a sentimental return... More

The restaurant is very french and very popular. Make sure you book ahead. The food was very good as was the wine list. I was quite pleasantly surprised as to the variety and selection of seafood. The salmon and prawns were excellent as was the beef. The only issue is that they "tend to pack you in" so if you... More

Just amazing, service is excellent and just the fact that my favorite actor was there made it all better... Truly this is a restaurant that is a must go when in Paris. I highly recommend it, great choice of wine and food to die for.
