Environment of the nineteenth century, with good service and good food. At lunch, I ordered a lamb that was correct. But the soufflé Grand Marnier (20 minutes) is a must.

Starting from the greeting at the front door, the restaurant oozed relaxed style. Seated immediately, although 20 min early, all staff were efficient and attentive. From the French Onion Soup, the Escargot to the Chateaubriand for two, to the wines by the glass to the exquisite bottle of read with main, this place is comfortable fine dining. If you go... More

My friend wanted to visit this restaurant because it was in the movie “Something’s Gotta Give”. I had never heard of it before but was open to the adventure of a new place. We were walking and it took us quite a while to find it as it was difficult to follow the map we had picked up at the... More

I made reservations for my Husband's birthday after seeing this restaurant in the movie "as Good as It Gets." We were not disappointed. The service and the food were amazing. We enjoyed the traditional Parisian experience.

The service was excellent. The decor is great. We have been there before so our expectations were high. The food was not at all good. You needed a knife and fork to consume the tasteless onion soup. More a cheese and bread dish than soup. The veal could have been anything. Certainly it was not tasty tender veal Limon. Somehow... More

Le Grand Colbert, an old mainline French restaurant - made famous by serving as a location for the movie with Diane Keaton Something's Gotta Give" - is very popular with American tourists. A little pricey, you should order the escargot and the potatoes au gratin (to die for!). The service is professional but busy.

Another trip to Pari - another opportunity for dinner at le Grand Colbert. This bistro/brasserie retains all it's charm whist still sefving up excellent food. Visited by many Americans because it featured in a film with Dianne Keaton ( forgotten the title) it maintins its' dignity. By no means the cheapest ( a 3 course meal + a half bottle... More

What can I say, the reputation was far from reality. I ordered the "famous" roast chicken. While it was generous in portion, it lacked seasoning and was so dry I couldn't eat it without washing down every mouthful with a drink. My partner had the sirloin which was a major contrast to my dish. Flavoursome and tender (wish I had... More

We went on a holiday so very few people at the restaurant, service was good and attentive with kids. As for the food it was amazing. One of the best steak tartare, great escargots and onion soup, delicious sole meuniere, we also had foi gras and lobster. Worth the visit.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
