Went there for wife's birthday. Place very nice, and the staff was excellent. But the food simply wasn't that great. My wife's fish was awful. You can get better food for way less money at many local Bistros in Paris. But there was the movie.....

In a high-ceiling room presided over by a bust of Minister Colbert of Louis XIV fame, complete with leather banquettes, potted palms, and a lot of brass, the food is quite good. Enjoyed a perfect onion soup gratinee, escargot and foie gras naturelle along with...More

Our farewell dinner in Paris was at Le Grand Colbert, as return guests. We were a group of 4 ladies. Surprisingly, the welcome and initial order of drinks was very confusing, rushed, and weird. I did not want to ruin the celebratory nature of our...More

The Grand Colbert never disappoints. I am particularly fond of the chilled seafood platter with cockles, mussels, clams, oysters and shrimp. The service is excellent and the greeting friendly. Reservations are recommended.

Le Grand Colbert came highly recommended to my aunt, and so we were sure to book a table several weeks before our trip. We were not disappointed. The beef bourguignon was delicious; the service was impeccable; and the ambiance was classic. If you're into the...More

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

Sorry, just saw this. Tell them it is a special occasion and they will seat you appropriately. It was my 65th birthday and we sat to the right of the front door, in a corner booth. by the window, it was perfect.

Le Grand Colbert, taken from the name of Louis XIV’s famous minister, a well versed man on French cuisine in which some dishes still refer to his celebrity, is situated in the heart of the 2nd district in Paris which borders the Palais Royal gardens, la Place des Victoires, the Stock Exchange and well known theatres such as Les Bouffes Parisiens, La Michodière as well as Le Theatre des Variétés, Palais Royal and many others. You can find in the large room an architectural volume which is quite impressive, walls as high as 6 meters, relics, in particular, sculpted pilasters and their consoles. You can also admire paintings in a Pompeian style of which there are very few examples in Paris. The mosaique floor, exactly like the one in the Galerie Vivienne, is worth admiring. Today, Le Grand Colbert has now been listed as an historic monument and has been managed by Joel Fleury since August 1992 and his business team. They welcome and serve a cosmopolitan clientele.
