I went for lunch again with my wife. As always, I loved the room (wonderful art deco) and the food was good (though not excellent). Our waiter was incredibly rude. When he came to take our order, he simply stared at us. At the end he threw the bill on the table. He was equally rude to a table of... More

We ate here twice; first we were recommended to this by our hotel; no reservations were accepted at a peak time but they said they would find a table, and they did; five minutes wait only. The place was buzzing, the food delicious and wine was fairly priced. After the main course service tailed off, but at least we were... More

I have been eating in this restaurant (on and off) for 20 years; it is the first place I eat if I am in Paris. It has this great artistic history (Camus celebrated his nobel prize here and it was a favourite of Sartre). For me, it is the classic French Brasserie, big noisy room with waiters ripping around, a... More

Business dinner for two. Onion soup, lamp and steak and dessert. Waiter was amazing. Professional guy and funny. Food was ok. Nothing amazing. The restaurant is huge and atmosphere was great. People eating talking and of course the place with history.. Not promise to come again.

We had our Sunday lunch in this restaurant. We didn't book, the place was full, but they found a table for us. I absolutely enjoyed an atmosphere in the restaurants. An interier, photos give you a feeling travelling in the past. Fantastic! We hade a Fisherman plate with seafood. It was tasty. Good service. We will visit next time.

It has been almost 50 years I'm a fan of "La Coupole"... So, for my 70th birthday I couldn't choose anywhere else, I guess... We had scargots and coquilles... Always perfect. And a beautiful birthday party by the staff... Log life to "La Coupole"!!!

Coupole stands the test of time. I brought my family this time to celebrate my son's birthday. We ordered the seafood platter for four to start, it was magnificent with excellent lobster and oysters not to mention the langoustine. We also ordered a bottle of Bollinger Champagne for my wife and I. I have to say, they have the best... More

I booked La Coupole online after reading the reviews. My better half is a keen follower of Art Deco so it was a natural choice. First thing you notice is the size of the place. I can't believe they produce food of such quality for so many. Unlike some reviewers here we had an excellent waiter who was friendly and... More

Great atmosphere with huge dinning area. If you skip the sea food that is great in most of the places, some of the dishes were pre-cooked(snails) and the meats were at a grill that left them a bitter taste.Slow service but on Saturday evening. My impression is that this place is well known and runs in the automatic pilot. Wouldnt... More
