Square Meal Review of Colbert ?

“You could be in Paris” at this grand, feel-good rendezvous, so sit back and dream of 1920s Montmartre amid its timeless mix of art-deco prints, red leather banquettes and black-and-white tiled floors. Boasting Messrs Corbin & King’s matchless attention to detail, this close relation of The Wolseley et al is a delightful, rollicking room overseen by energetic waiters in long black aprons. With a vast choice of dishes ranging from croque monsieur to pots of beluga caviar, the carte has something for every occasion, although it’s better to plump for the reliably Gallic middle ground – say plump garlicky snails, salade Niçoise, steak tartare or cassoulet. There’s an equally alluring bar too, so pop in for a glass of Sancerre or hunker down with a coffee and pretend you’re Hemingway. “Full of life and a great bonus for the local scene”, concludes one fan, failing to notice service can on occasions hit the skids.

    Forks-Up Restaurant Reviews :: Colbert Restaurant Review

    Situated right on chic Sloane Square, Colbert brings the style of the grand boulevard cafes of Paris to one of the most upmarket corners of London and looks set to be a sure fire hit. Stepping through the doors is like stepping back in time, the dark wood tables, marble floors, red leather banquettes and mellow lighting are evocative of mid-20th Century Paris, and the numerous immaculately turned out waiters and waitresses flit from table to table, less brusque but just as efficient as their Gallic counterparts, making sure the diners are properly taken care of.

    The menu is classically Parisian, ranging from...

    samphire and salsify :: Colbert

    Colbert is the new ‘Parisian all-day cafe’ from master restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King (who own the Wolseley, The Delaunay and Brasserie Zedel). Situated on the corner of Sloane Square in Chelsea and slap bang next to the Royal Court Theatre, it’s location is rather a splendid one.

    We managed to get a table during the opening week meaning we received 25% off the bill whilst they were still finding their feet (I do love a good discount)...
