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

I've never seen a restaurant this big. I entertained 22 people to dinner and was accommodated no problem. The main theme is Alsatian cuisine, but there is plenty else to choose from on an enormous menu. Do not expect to have a quiet romantic meal: it is more of an enormous high class, quaint canteen than a restaurant. The food... More

Bustling charming restaurant in Lyon that serves up tasty food. Huge Art Deco chamber with a great atmosphere. Had typical French fare- crab to start, fillet steak cooked to perfection, baked Alaska ( must order at start of meal) and local red wine. The din of chatter and cutlery halted when the lights dimmed to celebrate a birthday. Everyone clapped... More

Having read the reviews, I tried to keep an open mind as big and noisy is not really my thing. We tried to make a reservation here for Friday night but it was full, so we came on Sunday evening when it was much quieter. Go with an empty stomach as the portions are generous. We shared a starter of... More

Big and beautiful in size, menu and service! Brasserie Georges is one of the oldest and largest Brasserie in France which at first made us think that because of its size it may not be able to live up to its reputation. Wrong! The ambiance, the decor, the food, the excellent speedy service, all first class. A must try.

The ethos and style of this restaurant probably has not changed since it first opened at the end of the 19th century It is almost liking stepping in back in time to a period when the customer was king and service was indeed service Added to that a fine menu and superb surroundings and you have a winner.

As an upscale restaurant this was fine dining at it's best! Service was excellent, menu very interesting including veal's head and pork chitterlings, A large dining room, all the tables full, and never felt crowded or rushed. Reservations are best. Bon A'petite.
