I think, it is the certainty of very good restaurant. Very good staff, very good food, very good wine and very good price. Yes, really very good. But not excellent

We were referred here by a friend from home. What a waste of an evening in a city known for its food. Where do I begin- the atmosphere? Like a train station with about as much noise...we were packed in to a banquette table between two noisy parties that were about as happy to see us as as we were... More

I go hear nearly every time I'm in Paris. The food is nothing to write home about, the wine list is limited and a bit overpriced. The service is just OK. I would note that even given that, I've never had a bad meal there. The reason I come back is the unparalleled history and atmosphere. There's nothing like La... More

My wife and I stayed in Montparnasse for 10 days, and after our red-eye flight and taxi, randomly stumbled into La Coupole without reservations or preconceptions at about 10:00 pm. Greeted warmly with smiles (which was so nice after our flight) and seated under the beautiful mural overhead. We were treated so graciously, our French is poor but the waiters... More

Here for 60th birthday celebration. Classic French brasserie. Standard menu, everything done pretty well, Chateaubriand, fish dishes, desserts, cheeses very good. Let down by charmless, narcissistic, unsmiling waiter too busy channelling early period Leonard di Caprio vibe to give a damn. Nonetheless, enjoyed it well enough...

I have been several times in this brasserie and I can say it is a wonderful location full of history, but there host too many people during the dinner and it is too noisy. The food is very good, but also prices are high ath the end. In any case it is a place to go for sure in Paris.

We first visited this restaurant 2 years ago. In a nutshell, we liked it! Nice food, good service etc. However - we returned to Paris last week, and in anticipation, booked at La Coupole for the first night. I am so thankful I did not make any more bookings. I had booked online for 6pm. We arrived, and firstly was... More

A very energetic restaurant with good food, excellent service and enjoyable ambience. Enjoyed escargot, a very large platter of oysters and excellent white wine.

This restaurant is a big, busy, noisy old place that looks and feels past it's prime. The waiters seem over extended and the food seems lacking attention as well. The food was passable but nothing special and after such a long wait was somewhat a disappointment. I had duck and my wife had chateaubriand which we ate with enthusiasm only... More
