We had a group of 8 with us the first night we visited this beautiful restaurant. It was truly a grand experience for all 8 of us and the decor is beautiful, hanging chandeliers, beautiful ceilings and romantic. The food was fabulous and the service was impeccably. Francois was our waiter and treated us like royalty. This is the restaurant... More

Visited this place together with some friends. Food was prepared the way it should be, very tastful but not cheap at all. Had some of the best crepe suzette as dessert. The waiter told us that the roast chicken would served crispy but it wasn't (the meat was tasty though).

The food and service were definitely above average compared with other places we ate in Paris, but we went primarily to see how the restaurant compared with what we saw in the movie, and we weren't disappointed.

I was guilty, as I am sure many other tourists often are, of wanting to go here after it was mentioned in the movie w/ Diane Keaton (Somethings Gotta Give) and of course I had to order the roast chicken too! it was just ok. the chicken was a bit dry to be honest. the atmosphere was nice but food...

My mom and I went here on the recommendation of our tour guide. We both love the movie, Something's Gotta Give, but didn't think to track down this place before we came to Paris! Our guide told us dinner reservations can be hard to come by so he recommended we stop by during lunch hours for their prix fixe menu.... More

The restaurant had a great buzz and is quite well known, so we tried it despite many reviewers cautionary concerns. The food was OK to good, standard classic French cuisine, with good French onion soup, salmon, oysters, etc. The restaurant is fun and classic French bistro. However, the service was mediocre at best. Food dropped at table without follow up,... More

A great place to enjoy a great meal. Start off with an olive salad and a bowl of potato chips. A great menu to choose from. I had the roast chicken which was fantastic and my Mom had the filet which was very good. Ambiance is quiet, well lit and a nice place to eat.

If you want a slice of a real Parisian life, go to Le Grand Colbert! The bistro is centrally located near the Palais Royal, and a regular spot for the rich and famous, but its casual atmosphere and fantastic food make it for an attraction in and of itself. Always a win-win, and you just never know whom you might... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

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.
