Square Meal Review of Café Colbert ?

Custom-built for ‘Chelsea’s new old guard’, this jam-packed recreation of a 1920s’ Parisian café is the pulsating heart of Sloane Square and buzzes from breakfast until late with a transient crew of locals and shoppers. Colbert’s high-ceilinged interiors are convincingly theatrical with red leather banquettes, vintage posters, photos of movie stars and a dazzling mosaic floor in the bar, while the menu is ‘textbook grand brasserie’ – and all the better for it. Coffee, cakes and croque monsieur are touted alongside buttery snails (‘plump little fellows’), moules marinière and substantial plates of salade Niçoise, cassoulet and veal kidneys in mustard sauce. Otherwise, Elizabeth David completists can economise with ‘an omelette and a glass of wine’, while Made in Chelsea types splash out on caviar and Champagne. Service can be decidedly off-hand, but there’s no denying that Messrs Corbin & King (The Wolseley et al) seemed to have weaved their magic once again with this nexus of fashion, society and the arts.

    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 simple snacks like croque monsieur, to extravagant platters of oysters and caviar, to brasserie staples like moules marinière and steak diane...
