Great Location, Attentive Staff

We chose to eat here for the literary historical significance and were fortunate enough to get a table on the covered in, see through front terrace facing out to the street - to people watch.

We arrived underdressed. The Maitre De would only make an exception to the dress code after receiving a tip. The waiter didn't pull the table out to allow the people sitting on the bench to get in or out easily. 5 people in our party and they brought 4 pieces of bread. He rolled his eyes when I sent back...

Manfriend and I caught the Eurostar train from London so that we'd be back in Paris in time for a late dinner and hopped over for our 10pm meetup at Brasserie Lipp (they are open late, do not take reservations and it's first come first served, most likely a wait but if you fuss you can leave, that's their motto...

Fabulous history to this restaurant, wonderful location. Who said French waiters are rude? Our waiter was absolutely charming and provided topnotch service.

I understand why some comments are negative.. Probably the price, the quality of food, the fact that is more for Americans than Parisians... All true but... My experience was: a kind and quick service, traditional food which was well cocked and the price fair enough (and well, come on! This is st. Germain!!!!) ..If you come here not in July... More

If you want an experience typical of what most Americans think of Paris, i.e arrogant, haughty, over-priced, and poor service, dine at this iconic restaurant. The waiters are well trained snobs. The food isn't any better than any bistro two blocks away. However, you'll have the privilege of paying about 50 percent more. Really only worth having a meal so... More

This is one of those traditional brasseries in paris where you cant go wrong. Everything from the brie to the steak tartar was very well prepared and delicious.

The best days may be behind this historic place! On a famous street, and a famous place, this is a place that you may want to avoid. If you go, make sure you dine on the first floor.

Recommended by friends, so made this a walking destination while in the district. It was a hot day and a long walk. We sat on the terrace and were treated with first class service. The melon plate was deliciously refreshing. The creme caramel was outstanding. Unfortunately, it was too hot to eat anything else. Would return in a heartbeat.

We went for a late dinner on a Saturday night and the restaurant was full of French people, dressed up, and out for the evening. We were the only people we saw speaking English. We could tell it was frequently filled with Parisians because our waiters barely spoke English. That didn't keep them from being flirty and cute though. The... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
