I had dinner at Brasserie Lipp (like often when I am in Paris) on Friday December 12th. This historic brasserie was opened in 1880 by an Alsacian couple, Leonard and Petronille Lipp, specializing in Alsacian dishes like choucroute. In 1926, the interior was renovated in art deco style my the new owner Roger Cazes (after whom a literary prize, given... More

We went there for dinner with good expectations, as this place is also mentioned on the Lonely Planet Paris Guide. However, we found ourselves in a pretty awkward situation, as the waiters did not speak a word of English (which would not be a huge problem, we are in France) and subtly made joke of us due to being non-French...

For some reason, I tend to have one meal at Lipp whenever in Paris. It is a stupid thing, really, since there are so many restaurants here. The food is rather traditional, but nevertheless good. The service is ordinary, but also very correct and amicable. Prices are also affordable. In particular, I love their millefeuille. The most important thing, though,... More

I love this restaurant! So authentically Parisian all the way down to the slightly aloof (read mildly blunt) older waiting staff wandering between closely set tables packed with diners of all ages gesturing wildly over steaming hot snails and huge bowls of unidentifiable but delicious smelling stews!! Now I am aware that a lot of people would find the waiting... More

If you want to feel that you have been transported back to a time when dining was sublime then go to Brasserie Lipp. The waiters are in bow ties and aprons..white glove treatment from the start. It has a classic french menu, from fois gras to gravlax. It is large and not necessarily quaint or intimate but it does feel... More

I took two of my american friends and two of my french friends along with my sister to this brasserie on a Monday night. You have to make reservation. It is a fun place to watch people and the waiter dressed in the typical Parisian cafe attire with the long black aprong. They are Pro and they know how to... More

By old fashioned I mean bordering on the rude. The staff must suffer a certain ennui dealing with tourists coming here to have one drink or a pastry and then sit staring around at the fabulous decor . It's iconic and sits across the road from Cafe Flore and Les Deux Magots which are equally famous , even more expensive... More

I live in St Germain and took my parents out for a fantastic meal in the 9th. We stopped by at Brasserie Lipp on our way home in the hope of having a dessert. I asked the waiter, in French, if they did rum babas (a Paris staple) and his reply was, with a look up and down, "non plus."... More
