The interior is lovely but....we had to wait ages to be served. The beer is completely overpriced and they were out of some of the beers advertised. There was a feeling that the waiters look down on you. We wouldn't go back- what a shame as we had looked forward to going there due to its history.

My husband and I ate here last night after asking our taxi driver for a recommendation on our way back to our hotel. Everyone from the doorman to our waiter(s) were absolutely wonderful. The outside patio was still full at 10:30 and we did not have a reservation so we were seated inside. I only know a few phrases in... More

The place has an average food and good ambience, but the waiter was very rude when he discovered that we did not speak French and we spoke to him in English (although we are not from an English speaking country). It seems that some French people suffer with the loss of importance of their language. We will not return to... More

We nervously approached the door having read the reviews but despite service being in full flow we were warmly greeted and offered a table downstairs which was dressed as we sat with starched white linen. The menu is in French but with a basic knowledge of French we could understand most and what we did not understand the waiter cheerfully... More

Brasserie Lipp had been recommended by fellow travellers as well as being highly ranked on tripadvisor AND Lonely planet however definitely didn't live up to our expectations. The staff were quite rude and despite reading many reviews stating they provided an English menu we were rudely dismissed when asking for an English menu. In terms of flavour the snails were... More

Exactly as expected and hoped - Alsace type resto with hearty food, smart waiters and lovely tables. Fascinating clientèle - some locals and some tourists

I always approach 'famous' restaurants with caution - they tend to trade on their reputation a little too much. Lipps is more famous than most having featured at some length in Hemingway's A Moveable Feast and later become a regular for Picasso and others. Lipp did, however, meet expectations. Arriving quite early for dinner, we were soon seated and enjoying... More

We had read about Brasserie Lipp in guidebook and decided to give it a try, though were unsure if we would get a table without a reservation. Fortunately that was not a problem and though the restaurant was quiet to begin with it soon began to fill up and was quite busy by the time we left. It is a... More

We walked in off the street unsure of how we would be treated. we were both wearing very casual cloths and caring cameras....a tourist identification was not required. The staff were fantastic and did not care. We wanted to eat inside and were initially the only ones....this soon changed as many people began to arrive. Our waiter was great, spoke... More
