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

Just back from a few days in Paris. Decided to do a bit of internet searching to find a nice restaurant to eat and La Coupole was near our hotel and had reasonably good reviews. The restaurant was really busy but they were able to take us without a reservation. Paris was very hot and clammy that day but the... More

La Coupole 18 July We love this restaurant as we have been many times before. We took Eurostar London to Paris for a romantic weekend and this dinner was to be the romantic start. In summary, the restaurant atmosphere wonderful, food excellent but the table position and comfort bad and waiter service disastrous and diabolical. When we arrived on time... More

It is a grand brasserie. A must see. I had scallops - tiny, overlooked and old. I actually had the nerve to send them back! Ordered beef and it was maybe fair. So unfortunate. Such a great institution.

My wife and I decided to have diner here based on Timeout review and the history. Trip advisor reviews not the best but do not be put off. La Couploe is very beautiful with great service and most importantly the food is amazing. They are famous for their shell fish platters which looked superb. We had the Prestige menu which... More

Found this restaurant listed in an Eyewitness guide and decided to try it based on it's history and proximity to our hotel. Enjoyed the food (duck and lamb were very good) as well as the great service. Classy interior added to a great experience.

They used to cook food there and used to be great I believe they only reheat pouches nowadays Steak Tartar was ridiculously small badly seasoned and tasteless Baba au rhum was grey, little taste and deflated... The only positive and obviously (it will be hard for the new owner to fit in a pouch) is the seafood but still why... More

This should be the last place for you to go eat in Paris. Worst service, cold food, butter that never arrived, water that was never delivered and empty plates that were never cleared. The waiter was rude, argumentative. At one point told the table next to us if you order desert I may bring in next week. They were not... More
