Went there to experience the art deco decor. Was unimpressed with the huge non-intimate setting. The food there was good, but not outstanding. However, there is a reason we will never return (except maybe to dance when they have one downstairs). While we were welcomed by the hostess, once we sat down, it was clear that the waiter viewed us... More

I dined at La Coupole in the 1990s. Even though it was world renowned then, the food was still amazing. Tonight in 2014, it was terrible. If I was French, I would hang my head in shame. You can get better food at any corner cafe or bistro. I ordered the fish La Plancha, it was really bad. The fish... More

We had oysters as starter and they were great. For the main course - Lobster with tarragon sauce. The lobster was not good at all but we did like the place very much - it is so Parisian and lovely. Great atmosphere.

When visiting Paris, you MUST go to La Coupole. A perfect way to end a long day of site seeing. If you like the Art Deco period you will love this restaurant. The history is very impressive. I would not recommend going if you are on a budget because it is extremely expensive. Go for a glass of wive or... More

This restaurant is a fun night out - lively, spectacular seafood platters and theatrical waiters. I had a wonderful steak tartin and iles Flottante for dessert. The first course was ok - fois gras I think. Everyone in my party enjoyed their food. The curry in particular was very fine. I would be very happy to come here again -... More

Went there with a group of people based on recommendation and will definitely not come back. The service was terrible, very slow, very improfessional, with very little attention paid to you as a guest. Even the food was not any special. There are definitely better places around.

I went last night to La Coupole in Paris having read all about it and how popular it was with Hemingway and some of the other writers and artists. So as a tour operator I wanted to investigate. I had also read about the Art Deco pillars and the ceiling - all of which is very Art Deco and interesting,... More

La Coupole brasserie certainly lived up to its reputation. Its Art Deco style makes eating there an experience not to be missed. The food was really great as was the wine selection. The service was extremely good; I wish all French waitresses were like this. Apart from seafood their specialty is to flambé; either your main-course steak in Armagnac or... More

I used to go very often to La Coupole, it is one of the best restaurants in Paris, and it is a pity they took out of the menu the Homard grillé aux herbes flambé au whisky... My best souvenirs are of birthdays spent there: by the time of your dessert, all the lights are going off and all the... More

Walked into this restaurant last week and sat for over 20 minutes without being served water or receiving a wine menu. When we beckoned a server, we were rudely dismissed. We left and walked across the street and had a lovely meal with great service at a brasserie!
