Steak not cooked well, sent back and still not cooked done. Poor service, waiter has too many tables to wait on. Service is too slow. No shorts allowed except for general manager's son. Stay away go to another restaurant.

One of the benchmarks of traditional paris, a kind of brasserie to love or hate. Better if you speak french. Very traditional and even fairly shy waiters, traditional old food. Good ambiance if you are lucky. Not to miss. Ask to be seated downstairs and take french waiters easy!

One has to have a lunch at this very parisian if not culinary but at least cultural monument : all the great writers of the pas two centuries were there and their gosts are still making the ambiance. Truth is the staff too... The meals are correct without any originality but reliable and classic. The decor is like a time... More

Hi what can I say but the worst place we have ever ate in years, maybe I`m used to Australian places but no danger this has took the biscuit. First the waiter acted like we were from another planet and chose not to help with the menu then as we asked for guidance we were told chicken or beef ,... More

Wonderful place for dining in Paris. Great location and buzzing with people. The food was fabulous, and I had the daily special, Blanquette de Veau (French veal ragout). Our waiter was extremely pleasant and patient with us not speaking French. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant, even though it's a bit pricey.

Good place to dine in Paris. Very classy and old school but welcoming nevertheless. The cloud dessert is something different.

Brasserie Lipp was highly recommended though we were warned they could be nasty. The food we were told was worth the treatment. Our experience was somewhat what we expected. Our waiter was tolerant but could not speak English and made no attempt to try and help us. We hoped for something exotically and deliciously French. We wound up with plain... More

I am really pleased with this restaurant. Has the soup and the fish and they were both excellent. My favorite part: Their homemade desserts!

Usually I want to give positive feedback of my experiences! Now I just have to give quite negative one as the tonight's dinner at this famous Parisian brasserie Lipp was so much below the average quality of the brasseries in Paris. My wife and myself visit Paris around four times per year and we usually eat in very good restaurants... More
