Remembering....

I was a child when my father took me in this typical and popular brasserie. After 35 years it seems nothing has been changed...it looks like at that time and that was my expectation. Food is average, but the raw materials are genuine and french style presented. The place is amazing full of mirrors... read more

We decided to celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary here as the Lonely Planet Guide suggested that this was somewhere special. We had our hotel make a reservation and we arrived at the appointed hour. We were seated at a satisfactory table location and ordered our meal. The waiters were busy and, though not rude were rather officious (FYI waiting table... More

I eat my meal touching shoulders with the woman on the next table! The space between tables was zero.............The meal was ridiculously expensive for what it was! I had fish soup to start which at best was average compared to soups I have enjoyed in the past, followed by mash potatoes and fish in a dish, not a fish pie... More

Braserie Lipp offers the best food of the three main cafes in this area of St Germain des Pres; the place has been there for a long time and there’s plenty of knowledgeable waiters, food is delicious (mostly from the Alsace region), served quickly and elegantly. I had one of the best roasted chicken in a long time, accompanied with... More

Yes, "traditional" French waiters and few concessions to an international clientele, but none the worse for that. We joined many of the local "rich old couples" and small family gatherings, for lunch on Easter Sunday and had a great time being transported back to the 1960s - not in a terribly bad way, or in a terribly good way, but...

So it appears they have a policy of locals getting to eat in the front of the restaurant and visitors being pushed to the rear of the restaurant and packed in like sardines. Once you get over the fact they literally have to slide or pick your table up so that you can sit down things start to get better.... More

Service must be hit or miss judging from the other reviews, but our family was treated wonderfully by a patient and diligent wait staff. They were happy to help with the menu and wine list, get the meat cooked "right" for Americans who don't want their steaks raw, and introduce us to some previously untried dishes such as a delicious...

Food excellent, and the waiters, wonderful to observe. It was a full house, and kept everyone on their toes. A little expensive...but the food was excellent.

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.
