We returned to Le Grand Colbert after a few years gap with a party of 6 recently. It was as good as remembered! first of all they were able to accommodate a last minute delay/change in our reservation on a Friday evening which was most appreciated. While limited, we all enjoyed the multiple-course....my oysters on the half-shell as a starter... More

We were a table of twelve celebrating life, big birthdays and the chance to travel together. Service was spot on, the onion soup was the best but would not touch the seafood platter for two - ever again... Beautiful experience and grateful to have shared this evening with those I love most. A truly Parisian brassiere - go for the... More

The food was wonderful. the 10 y/o and 8y/o tried escargot for the first time. It was a hit. One of the waiters entertained our 4 1/2 y/o... More

I've written rave reviews of Le Grand Colbert - my wife and I have been there several times over the last few years and we always went away completely satisfied - until tonight. And wouldn't you know it, we bring family along to share our great find and the restaurant comes up short - really, really short. The service, which... More

What a fabulous restaurant! The decor is gorgeous, the waiters were superb and the food was absolutely delicious. Such a wonderful treat! We shared the Chateuabriand which was excellent and the roast chicken was the best we've ever had. Our three kids loved it!

Exactly what you think of when you think of a Parisian brasserie. Very good food and service. Mostly tourists, but aren't we all?

Great service, excellent food, very beautiful restaurant. When in Paris, it is a must! We had the seafood platter, which was a lot to eat, we couldn't finish. Great wine selection. Extremely attentive service.

Loved the movie and loved the Le Grand Colbert. We feared that the restaurant might be a disappointment given its notoriety but were so wrong. The food was divine and the ambience was special. There was a mix of locals and tourists dining when we visited and everyone seemed to enjoy the experience. Have just returned from Paris and watched... More

My wife really wanted to eat here because of it's role in the movie, Something's Gotta Give, so I made a reservation. I had no idea what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised! The staff was perfect, even having someone at the door to help us out of our taxi and into the restaurant. That was a nice touch.... More

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.
