Good food

A very trendy restaurant. I was a little disappointed with the onion soup (hardly any onion). Service was good. Vallet parking for those who need it (at list on Friday nights). We walked in without a reservation, even thigh it is recommended.

One of the oldest Brasserie in Paris near Montparnasse. Became famous for their Indian Curry but are now known for their excellent French cuisine. It is big but very nice to sit. Waiters are great.

This place still packs 'em in though not with the same style of the 1920s! Not that impressed in terms of a dinner venue. Food was ok but nothing more. Service was adequate. Could be a good place for a large group...not a deux IMO

I was very disappointed. They messed something up with our order and we waited almost an hour for our food. On top of that, my dish tasted like it was made an hour ago, cold with sticky rice. On the other hand, everybody else on the table said that their food was delicious. But a place as known should not... More

Had dinner tonight at La Coupole, as usual a very good experience. This lively brasserie is consistently excellent, service & food first class and wonderful atmosphere, regular clientelle & tourists alike flood to this truly outstanding restaurant so be sure to book in advance. Very good quality/price with a la carte menu & set priced menus. If you intend to... More

Love the ambience of this Parisian icon that has been serving food for so may years. I have been coming here for many years but unfortunately the magic has gone. Yes the Dining Room is still large and magnificent but the whole experience falls short of the memories of yesteryear. The fully bedecked Indian server still wheels his trolley of... More

Came out for a meal for my two year anniversary with my boyfriend, I am usually a strict vegetarian but expanded my repertoire for this weekend trip to meat loving Paris! We were given an english menu, which said there was a mushroom ravioli with cod, I ordered this with French fries on the side as a precaution... To my... More

Many times I visited this institution and always had great choucroute. In fact during the Millenium came here to spend New Year's Eve and danced away. I wanted the place to be great still after my last visit 15 years ago but this was not to be. At least my son and his family enjoyed the dishes so I am... More

Yeah, yeah, it's a tourist trap, a cliche. But you just get why they've stayed in business for 80 years. A freak show with more than decent food. The oysters are just fresh, the chateaubriand perfect etc, but most of all this place is about a good time. Great staff, a lot of noise and a lot of action.

La Coupole is a classic restaurant that still delivers. The art deco interiors are fantastic, the ambience in the huge is room great, and the service e got was great. We had a traditional (large) seafood platter, which was delicious. La Coupole is a great place to go for a nice dinner out, maybe even more so in a smaller... More

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.
