Brasserie Lip is an icon of good food in Paris! The service is excellent and the dishes are well served, most of them can be divided by two. It is a lit expensive but it is worthwhile!

My husband and I were in the area and dropped into Lipp for something to drink, a place we had not visited before. Whilst enjoying a carafe of red wine, we took the decision to see if a table was available in the restaurant, it was the best decision we made during our stay in Paris! I have read some... More

As of lately (past 3 years atleast) I have found Brasserie Lipp to have lost part of it's quality. The food is not as god as before, service tends to be sluggish and the overall experience is that you are NOT going to a classic restaurant in Paris. It has definitely seen better days, I truly hope they bring it... More

This place is about 120 years old! They have the traditional parienne cuisine, so try them if you want to try out parisienne food. The waiter didn't speak english, so the chef himself came out and suggested us what to eat. And it did not disappoint!

I don't recall ever being treated with such contempt, rudeness and disregard by waiters in any restaurant in the world where I have dined before last night. We had been travelling all day and missed lunch therefore wanted an early dinner. But did not seem to be appreciated by the tone of our "greeting" despite a couple already dining in... More

After we arrived in Paris we asked our concierge to recommend a nice French restaurant nearby, he recommended Lipp. I think we weren't ready for the French experience quite yet, the fact that they spoke only French really took us by surprise, but we manage to order some food. The food was pretty good but we feel a bit a... More

We found this Cafe from a list of the "10 Best Cafe's in Paris"; no joke. And it sure does meet the challenge. For us, two Los Angeles-raised people of modest beginnings, being in such a hoity toity place was a bit difficult at first. In fact, there is a sign that asks you NOT to use your cell phone... More

This very traditional Alsacian brasserie is still going strong and mostly for locals who know the menu. The waiters are a little pushy but if you ignore that you will have a good experience. Check the bill as a bottle of San Pelegrino apeared twice instead of once! I think the waiters are on an incentive plan!

Even though I used to love Lipp and keep on going in my regular trips to Paris the service has become terrible a very rude. This time the waiter spelled steack sauce all over my jacket and cashmere scarf and "informed" me that I had to take it up to the "maitre d", because there was nothing he could do.... More

We popped in for a drink late afternoon. The waiter was so rude and indifferent that I am amazed any customer would willingly enter this establishment. I don't care how old or established this cafe is there is no excuse for rude waiters no matter how old they are. Avoid and spend your money elsewhere.
