Great service, but no seafood!

My friend and I decided to come here on our final night of a girly trip in Paris! We arrived and there were a few empty tables but were told to wait until our table was ready. A bit odd but we were happy to wait. Then we were told there was no seafood! A famous seafood restaurant with no... read more

LA COUPOLE, one of Montparnasse's most famous brasseries, opened in 1927 and soon became the favored hangout of many of Paris' most famous including Apollinaire, Cocteau, Stravinsky, Hemingway, Picasso, Josephine Baker, Matisse, Jean-Paul Sarte, and Edith Piaf. Quite a classy way to spend a night on the town within walking distance of our hotel Le M. Try the Curry d'Agneau... More

We booked a table for ten at the famous "La Coupole", a place we have visited many times in the past. We were very excited to revisit this wonderul brasserie. What a let down.... First off, despite the place being empty our table was not ready and we were made to wait as they set up. Next we were told... More

One of the worst dining experiences in Paris: a ghastly barn of a place with nil atmosphere: indifferent welcome/service/food. My advice would be to avoid this place.

Lovely decor although when you first step in it looks a bit like posh hotel foyer /bar. Menu extensive mostly seafood. Lots of Oyster options. Wine well priced we paid €29 which was midrange price. Service was very good although I was surprised we sometimes had to pour our own wine. You seem to get allocated a waiter got 4-5... More

Eating at La Coupole is of course about the food but moreover its about the experience. The immense dining hall with neighbors basically in your lap, the singing for the birthdays and the oldfashioned waiters. Always get some type of seafood on ice, definitely the way to go and the meats for the main course are fine too. My favourite... More

We booked a table at La Coupole based on a recommendation from my father in law...and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant is beautiful and the food tastes amazing. The staff were all very welcoming and attentive; and our waitress very kindly gave us a menu in English instead of French. My partner and I both had the duck foie gras... More

We went for lunch and loved it. We are from the set menu, the food was very good and very reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly and spoke numerous languages which made it easy. A English menu was available so ordering was easy. Great to eat at one of paris's iconic restaurants!!!

The Restaurant was almost full, Service OK, didn't serve Seafood, I think because it's being renovated. I went there a long time ago, and the people I was with, liked it more before.

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
