The food is wonderful and if you go on your birthday they play music and lower the lights to sing happy birthday to the client. It is very worth sitting down in the large Belle Époque saloon for a 3 course meal. If you are brave, try the Tartare. The haddock is also wonderful. Don't miss the chocolate mousse for... More

This is probably the most known restaurant in Lyon. A great atmosphere with really good food and service. I recommend it.

Although I give this restaurant an average score for it's history and ambience it would rate a very good/excellent. It is a big hall of a restaurant with not very flattering light levels BUT it's fantastic for people watching and has a band in the corner playing lovely music and everyone stops to clap. The rows of red banquets makes... More

Big big disappointment when I went back to brasserie George. Used to go there for the atmosphere and it's all gone. Food not as good as it used to be, been ordering the same dish for the last 20 years and quality/quantity has taken a knock. Waiter wasn't there to help people but to make sure the table would be...

This is one of the great dining halls in Lyon which easily sits 1000 customers. Formerly (still!) a brewery it has specialised in sauerkraut (quite lofgical as it accompanies beer well, or the other way around:-). Service is swift and personalised. The atmosphere amazing. When it is your birthday, they'll dim the light, sing Happy Birthday and all will applaud.... More

We visited the brasserie today. We already had the table reserved and the waiting time was reasonable. The first impression you get is that the restaurant is that is huge and it seems like a railway station. Food is average and at 14:30 half of the menu (specially sea food) was out of stock. The service was horrible !!! I... More

If you want an authentic French restaurant with authentic cuisine, you could go about anywhere else in Lyon and find it. But you won't find it here. The food is pretty overpriced, and is not special at all. It was one of my least favorite meals in four months of living here. It reminded me a lot of a Brauhaus... More

I am always looking forward to eating there because of the atmosphere. Large room and 19th century décor. The people who come here are a cross section of all classes who enjoy this restaurant. Each time someone has a birthday the organ plays, the lights are dim and everyone claps. The specialty is "sauerkraut" and regional food like "saucisson chaud".... More
