Just ok -- and expensive

We had a late lunch here mid-Feb and it was still very lively and crowded. We were shown a table upstairs, which was charming, light-filled, and quiet. The stairs were hard to maneuver for our oldest member and her slow speed was holding up the server behind her. He was very rude but was... read more

I got recommend this restaurant and thought it was worth a try despite some questionable reviews on this site and I have to say that I loathed everything about it, the starters were so bad I had to leave it and the mains were ok although it was all very over priced, France is famous for its food but this...

If you're wondering where to have that 'Very French' meal with 'Very French' waiters, Brasserie Lipp is an exceptional example. The staff do not speak English too well, but ask what they recommend, and it's guaranteed to satisfy you. Very good food, done to the roots and core of French cuisine.

I went by recommendation on my first trip to Paris. Foods was over priced IMO for what it was but still very good quality. My waiters bickered which was very entertaining. Dining solo I was able to observe those sitting very close by me, also entertaining. Was a great experience! Got a good glass of Bordeaux & had the tartare... More

Although there is not much on the menu that I would be really excited about eating, I think it is definitely worth a visit for the historic and iconic surroundings, style and atmosphere. Obviously, the Brasserie Lipp is a legend on the left bank, and I love the fact that it has changed very little if at all since Hemingway's... More

I have been eating at Lipp for over 30 years and notice somewhat of a decline in the food over the past few years. Last March my wife and I had a wonderful lunch at or favorite table in the back. The service French as always at the food and wine selections have returned to the standards we always expected.... More

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

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.
