Grand Colbert (Le)
This renowned, classic brasserie is housed in the Galerie Colbert. Sporting repainted friezes, fabulous gilding and fine Cafe de Paris-style lamps, this wonderful 1830s brasserie, now a listed building, looks as good as new. One of this fashionable district's most popular eateries, there's a constant buzz about the place and classic fare features on the menu: beef or fish dishes and choucroute. The fabulous seafood platter costs around EUR32.
Just arrived, very jet lagged, but we really enjoyed dinner at Le Grand colbert. We had escargot and my duck confit was delicious. We arrived just as it opened and it was crowded and busy by time we left. For first time visitors, check out the ladies room downstairs--never saw a toilet like that before!!!
It was our 31 st anniversary,and I had written down the name of this restaurant for some reason, that I forgot, in our guide to France book. When we arrived,sans a reservation, to boot, I realized it was the restaurant from,"somethings got to give." It is one of my favorite movies. You cannot imagine how truely happy I was to be there. The owner kindly directed us to the bar while we waited for a spot. He also picked up the bar tab, then sat us next to two other Americans,also celebrating an anniversary( they met on the tv show" the weakest link" and the four of us got along famously. It is one of those restaurants where everything runs beautifully because of the owners generous spirit. It obviuosly reaches his help as well. They are all equally accomodating.We also had the opportunity to meet "the girlfriend!" who works at the Birken Bag store who made some food recommendations.Just an all aroud wonderful dining experience. Wish I had a e-mail address to thank him myself. Hopefully, you let them know. Merci, Jillian
Movies are fiction people! A relative saw this restaurant in a movie and decided that�s it would be a fab place to celebrate his birthday. Yes the brasserie d�cor is charming but the food is definitely cafeteria style and unremarkable. Actually I�d call it just plain awful. Entrees are served with pounds of non descript boiled potatoes. It was almost impossible to get a waiter�s attention or any service at all. My husband ended up with a severe case of food poisoning that left him bed-ridden for days and really put a dent into our travel plans. If this was our first impression of Parisienne fare we would have packed up and got out of town.
I have dined there only once, definately you are paying for the decor and the name, not for the food, and it is food not Cuisine. But on the other side of the coin it is like walking into Paris 1890 and the service was friendly and fast. However if you are looking for a creative dining experence, this isn't it.
You are bound to admire the decorative works of this place. There is no way anyone can ignore the historical
significance of the restaurant. Bask in the aura of the rich tradition as you wait for your meals. And ...
If you're looking for some peace and quiet, you will love this place. This bistro is popular among the locals
for the varied, colorful & traditional French dishes it serves. The reception and service provided is also note worthy. ...
This bar cafe used to be a favourite venue among artists in the Montparnasse area. Jean Paul Sartre himself would
come and sit here for a coffee. Now it caters to tourists who have all heard or read about ...
