Good food and friendly people.

I've been two times to this restaurant and I can recommend it. Typical french brasserie, good place to eat well and drink wine with family or friends.

If you want an old style restaurant - complete with cloth napkins - Brasserie Lipp is the place. It's so formal, that it's a delight. The waiters can be snooty, but that's the charm! We had Duck and a Steak special and ordered a bottle of water. The Steak came with nice, crispy French Fries and the Duck with Roasted... More

If you wanna try the local food with a great taste and a classic ambiance, try this brasserie, most probable you will need a reservation as the place is quite busy. Very local but all the waiters speak english. The decoration is really nice !!

This restaurant is perfect for winter, as the food is heavy. You can't just pop in for a quick snack. The waiters are very proud to work there and they will tell you the history of the restaurant if you ask them. The restaurant is also full of small signs of what is NOT ALLOWED - smoking cigars, wearing shorts,... More

We decided to lunch here one day. The service was excellent as was the food and the ambiance but the prices topped the Eiffel Tower! I can definitely recommend it as a place to visit once in a trip put probably not more than that - unless you're independently wealthy!

Immuable in time - La Brasserie Lipp - is a restaurant bistro landmark in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Paris. Expect "real" french food, not fancy but good. Do not expect a private or romantic lunch but instead expect to see and to be seen... Nice bistro décor with signs for another time - see my photo. Plat du jour are always recommended... More

Coming to LIpp since the age of five and some twenty times a year I never thought I would ever write this in my mid sixties. I have always been most comfortable here, seeing the change of waiters over the years but never service, always impeccable, even if the food has never been the best; it all had to do... More

We wanted to visit the "famous" Brasserie Lipp, and I'm so glad we did. The decor was amazing--vintage ceramic tile, truly artistic. Service was friendly, and they offer a happy hour menu that we truly enjoyed. Try a traditional dish--like the egg and ham gelee. This is still a gem in the heart of historic St. Germain. Avoid Deux Magots... More

Love the atmosphere and history that goes along with Lipp, but can't recommend due to awful service and mediocre food. Might be better on a sunny day outside for coffee and a salad.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
