The memories of Brasserie Lipp from 30 years ago, are not the same

We went back to Brasserie Lipp after many years and found the setting to be as lovely as it used to be, the waiters fashionably arrogant, and the food portions far too big. The wines we ordered by the glass, and they were expensive and very delicious. It was nice to be back, but we would venture... read more

Despite booking in advance, upon arrival we had to speak to 4 different members of staff before being seated (all of whom appeared to just be standing around in the entrance doing nothing!). Over-priced mediocre food (I'm talking tough steak and oven chips from a packet and 8 Euro for a bottle of water). Only one member of staff was... More

If you want to have dinner at an expensive French restaurant with stereotypical snooty French waiters, then this is the place for you. We showed up without a reservations and they immediately could tell we were Americans so they put us back in the corner. I never saw one person smile or make us feel welcome. French restaurants usually let... More

A classic french brasserie which has kept traditional meals and waiters. Go for a great meat with french wine and you'll have a lovely dinner ! Plus you can meet celebrities sometimes...

I was surprised to see the TA reviews of Brasserie Lipp skew on the negative side, as I love this classic brasserie. Let me stick up for this glorious institution and attempt to explain what some reviewers may not appreciate. My wife and I first ate at Brasserie Lipp in 2011 at the suggestion of a good friend who grew... More

People have complained about the surly waiters. We had a five year old with us that the waiters fawned over. Our grand-daughter gave the head waiter a big hug when we left The food was great bistro food. I had foi gras and Chou cou garni and both were great. It's a bit expensive, because of the location, but a... More

I reserved a table through my hotel and it did make me wonder if we were treated differently because of that but then I noticed everyone was being treated the same so I felt more at ease. The design in here was very old but gave you that French interior you cannot find in many places because of the new... More

Well worth a visit. Try the entrecôte and fries. Great service with personality. Would visit again without hesitation and recommend unreservedly.

Brasserie Lipp is across Saint Germain, an art deco haven with mirrored walls and spruced up waiters in black and white. It is a Parisian experience that shall be had. The menu is a bit complicated to read, over pricey, but a true Parisian experience. The fish of the day was really good.

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.
