My girlfiend and I spent 3 wonderful nights at Le Grand Colbert. We were walking distance to the Cathedral of Notre Dame and some wonderful restruarants. The service was outstanding. Definitely would come back and stay. Glenn

The restaurant is wonderful - and that is where it stops. The server we had was rude. The menu stated a price but because it was a holiday they raised the prices but did not advertise the price increase. The food was just so-so. There are many other wonderful restaurants to choose from - this is a tourist trap for... More

We wanted to try a few things and the seafood tower of power along with the oyster appetizer was too much of a good thing for two of us. Lobster, crab, snails, clams, mussels, langastinos, mini shrimp - it was all there.

I am so surprised by the great reviews. Apparently our experience was not typical, but we would have had a better night at McDonalds. The service was absolutely terrible. So inattentive. So unhelpful. We couldn't leave fast enough. Go anywhere else.

We were two couples meeting for dinner- my wife as usual was running late and it was a hike from the Metro station and she was wearing heels so our friends waited a good 30 minutes for us to arrive. Luckily the Matre'D was an unusually friendly chap and had sat them down at a table and served them some... More

Le Grand Colbert is located in a very calm street, behind the Royal Palace. The interior is nice, typically French. The staff is mostly friendly. The food was delicious: very nice and tender red meat, and fresh and tasty fish. Do keep in mind that the restaurant is quite expensive.

It was a beautiful, magic, charmed and delicious restaurant. We eated differents planes with a couple of friends and all are ver y good. The people of the restaurant are all the time near watching over you, it wasn't a food, it was an experience.

Five of us had dinner last Sunday at this lovely restaurant. The food was of a high standard and the whole atmosphere had a really vibrant feel to it. The waiters were excellent and highly attentive, we all really enjoyed the experience

My husband, mother and I dined at Le Grand Colbert for the first time a few days ago. we loved it! The atmosphere was great, the food fantastic (frogs legs, lentil salad, oysters, we had it all). The only disappointments were that both the dessert Souffle and the dessert cart were both out; we were offered creme brulee and vanilla... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, 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.
