It's such a shame it has a beautiful interior which is unique and unusual. We went to a family dinner. I know it's typically Lyonaise Resto however the menu didn't show much selection and the food quality wasn't great. The serveurs were rude both times we visited. Every 10 minutes they sing Happy Birthday to someone, they switch the lights... More

First problem on foot is how to scale the dual highway that dissects the Cour de Verdun. If the sign on the Brasserie George building was any lower it would be invisible from the other side of the race track. Grand building inside, column less structure. Not full on a Sunday evening, but still busy. Starters were good, salads huge,... More

Warmly greeted as we arrived noon for lunch. Centrally seated in this wonderful art déco brasserie (largest pillarless building and seats 550 people). Established 1836. We ordered from Lyonnais menu and everything was served promptly and was excellent. Traditional French cuisine, brasserie style and good value. Many regulars here who dine alone- welcoming brasserie atmosphere. I highly recommend.

Went for dinner with husband and baby of 4 months. The waitors were very accomodating, we were given a table with space for the stroller next to it (the restaurant is totally crammed with tables very close together so this was great for us) and they were playing with our son which he absolutely loved. There is a changing table... More

After eating the evening before at the wonderful and highly recommended Cafe Des Federation (a traditional Lyon Bouchon) we decided to sample a different experience at The Brasserie George. A totally different venue but equally enjoyable. The place is absolutely huge with wonderful Art Deco interior. The sheer size of the place and the number of diners was mind blowing,... More

I don’t know if people who come here are really interested to the food or just to live the experience of the oldest brasserie in Lyon. It is the oldest brasserie and, undoubtedly, seems to be the largest. A huge dining room with high ceilings, painted walls, long tables with hundreds of seats and waiters who run up and down....

From the entrance you are impressed by the size of the restaurant (600 seats), the service is great, the plates are huge and the food very very delicious

It's not my favourite kind of food, either, but I thoroughly enjoyed the lentil salad followed by roast lamb, washed down with the house beer and some good burgundy. The "excellent" rating is not for the food, which was "very good", but for the experience: a majestic interior with fabulous turn of the century light fixtures, art nouveau trims, and... More
