Great food. The interior of the restaurant is the real star. Perfect choice to live it up in the home of art nouveau.
It was a really nice experience to have an early dinner in this restaurant. The service was outstanding as well as the quality of the ordered dishes (ingredients, preparation, garnishing). Not to mention the original well-preserved art nouveau atmosphere why we came here at the first place. If you want to celebrate a special occasion with high quality french dishes... More
The interior of the Brasserie Excelsior has hardly changed for almost a century. Windows, lighting elements and ceilings are contructed and decorated in original Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) style, the style of the famous Nancy School. If the interior is traditionally French, so is the cuisine. The Brasserie is affiliated with the equally famous Paris brasseries Bofinger and Julien, and it... More
This is an extraordinary building, with wonderful Art Nouveau architecture and interiors and its well worth a visit. We had two meals here, both were enjoyable. It is a very busy brasserie and the staff are constantly hurrying around the large space bearing huge platters at shoulder height. Most of the staff were pleasant, with one or two exceptions. (Notably... More
A very nice restuarant for a special occasion. We took our daughter here for a special evening out. The decor was amazing and service was friendly. Quite expensive but food was delicious
This place was just fun. Watching the diners, the staff, the delivery and presentation of the food. My daughter and I each had the "plan"—she got appetizer and main dish, and I got main dish and cheese course. The building is gorgeous, just celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. The food is very good, but it's the atmosphere that really... More
Book to eat and drink very well in this State recognised historic and wonderful brasserie dining room. Art Nouveau period, school of Nancy architecture, and a Proper old fashioned Brasserie. So good we visited twice! Extensive and expensive sea food menu but plenty of other choice. Busy all day (recommended to book) and run in a highly efficient way. The... More
Bustling atmosphere, waiters running on and off. Beautiful interior. Food was average, The wine we had was not worth the money.
If you like classic French belle epoque brasseries, this is one of the best. It reminded us of Terminus Nord in Paris (part of the same group), always consistently busy, professional and plain good. Excellent service. I had the quiche lorraine and choucroute, good local choices, more food than I could finish. My husband had a soft-boiled egg in cold... More
The L'Excelsior is an enormous art nouveau restaurant near the railway station. We ate here a couple of years ago on a rainy mid-week evening in January and just managed to get a seat thanks to the efficiency of the Maitre d' who had complete control of the restaurant despite it being absolutely packed out. This time we booked via... More
