Wanted to go to a "famous" place

We mostly ate at cafes and brasseries around our hotel or the sites we were seeing, but made a special trip to eat at Lipp to go somewhere "famous." We saw a lot of Americans there, but the two tables on either side of us were French -- one older couple on a date and one business lunch -- so... read more

Sure the neighborhood is a bit touristy and so is this place but it's food and its staff is as good as they come in Paris. The price is just right also great to have been there.

Ever since Gil Pender mentioned Brasserie Lipp in my favourite film, 'Midnight in Paris' I have been meaning to go there. I stopped by for a delightful glass of wine which cost 7 euros. Service was brusque, place appears professional. Something to do if you are in the area.

Times and vogues come and go and the iconic Brasserie Lipp continues to occupy a prominent location in the unber-chic locale of Saint Germain-des-Pres. It is a very masculine sort of place which draws its clientele from local, well heeled males sans wives or mistresses for whom a worn out ritual, presided over by surly waiters, is evidently more comforting...

We had a good experience at the Basserie Lipp in Switzerland. When we asked the concierge in our boutique hotel in Paris, he enfatically warned us that this is not the same experience as Switzerland. A well-traveled proper lady overheard the conversation and added to the warning. She said it was a tourist trap...not good food and the waiters were... More

True, there are only a few places open on a Sunday night, but we thought we'd give good old Lipp another chance, despite thinking it had lost its appeal on past visits. A friendly host seated us at a nice table in the front, and my husband and I both ordered the roast chicken, being asked which was our preference,... More

Though an institution by now, it slipped into mediocrity with the exception of service that is impeccable. Menu limited, quality below average but environment exceptional. With the popularity of this restaurant, Paris could offer more competition on the food side though the art nouveau setting will be hard to match.

Go for the ambient and tradition. Go for the shrimps and avocado. Go for the traditional duck pate And the beef filet with French fries or salad. Cream Brule for desert. For wine a bottle of chateau Ramage la batisse. Wonderful.

The quintessential Parisian brasserie, complete with snobby old waiters who approach you with disdain. Great food, and an institution and totally worth it. Not expensive either actually. A very Parisian experience.

The staff can be a little standoffish but the decor is lovely. I had a lovely tuna salad that was so big I could not finish it. It cost €16.50 which is not unreasonable.

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.
