Was a nice experience, don't expect the extra service and food but the whole experience is positive.... food is not something extra, tried the curry which was not very good.

I was invited there for a work dinner by Parisiens who had fond memories of La Coupole and indeed so did I from many years ago. It used to be a classic french brasserie - full of Parisiens eating straightforward classic cuisine. It had a great atmosphere. Now it is simply a tourist trap and empty of the locals who... More

We went with the whole family and a cousin from Paris and had an excellent meal. We had cocktails first at the bar and then did the whole treatment for dinner. It was a little pricey but worth it to have a real "old-fashioned Parisian" experience

Whenever I am in Paris I make sure to eat there at least once. This time, we were attending an exhibition so I invited my team for dinner. The restaurant was busy as usual, the ambiance was nice but unfortunately the service was not good, the waiter was arrogant and surprisingly the food was not exceptional specially for the price...

We have eaten here a few times and in fact a visit to Paris would not be complete without the Coupole Experience! The food, the wine, the atmosphere, the waiters, the decor, everything is amazing. There's nothing more to say except once you have been there you will always want to go back. We just love it !!

The restaurant service was very poor. We were asked if we did not mind a very large dog sitting beside our table - what can one say as then we could have been publicly accused of being anti-animals in restaurants which we are. Also, tea shirts were apparently allowed as there was not a dress code

Decided to go upon the suggestion of a friend. The food was disappointing and expensive and the ambience was not special. I felt like we would have been better served by trying something a little less touristy. The wine was cheap though!

La Coupole has been around for awhile and seen a lot. (Do spend time looking at the cartoons on the walls.) It's still a glamorous destination for a meal or a drink. As famous as it is, service is still friendly and efficient.

A true Art Deco masterpiece, La Coupole is the most famous Parisian brasserie in the world. Today it is the quintessential symbol of Montparnasse's history, as well as a key component of the art of living and socialising in Paris, particularly in the 14th arrondissement.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
