Impressive interior in art deco style. Very good service. Despite this, the food is not very good or well made. A lot of tourists, no charm.

Since we saw the high rating by so many people on various web sites, we put in a lot of effort to go there on my Birthday fora special treat. It was a disaster. The place is big, too big for a restaurant. It is like a college cafeteria. We found our waiter to be, impatient, impersonal, in a constant... More

This place is HUGE. Table after table and then some. This old original brewery has been turned into a wonderful restaurant with character and charm. Despite the volume of people, the place never felt noisy or crowded. The white table linen and red leather booth-type seating make for a stylish setting. The food was top notch. The goats cheese starter... More

Excellent quality food in a well established notable restaurant. Decor like a train station with many tables available. Gets crowded late. Definitely visit when traveling to Lyon but you must have patience with the servers if you do not speak French. Notable Special little pickles in a crock, huge tasty snails, delicacy of baby frog legs kept hot at your... More

When on holiday in Lyon I really wanted to eat some foie gras, and found this restaurant on tripadvisor. The food was lovely. Well presented, and delicious. Service was a little bit slow and not as attentive as you would like them to be, but it was quite a busy night. I'd definitely come back if visiting Lyon in the... More

Brasserie Georges is a fun, atmospheric delight. A great place to go with friends or family gatherings. Extremely competent waiters and waitresses with good gluten free knowledge. Traditional French menu with regional dishes. White table cloths and some speciality dishes prepared at the table. Our party had to start. French onion soup, roasted bone marrow, pate and my gluten free... More

The Brasserie Georges is a well-known restaurant in Lyon. It is a huge Art-Deco space with waiters dressed in black and white and the atmosphere is really amazing. They have a delicious dessert called "Omelette Norvégienne" and you have to order it as you order your starter and your main. It is a great place, not far from the city... More

You can't visit Lyon without eating at the Brasserie Georges. The setting is unique, the service courteous and the food will blow you away. Mind you, you won't find too many locals eathing there... but it's probably the international atmosphere that makes this such a special place; Japanese tourists eating Choucroute Royale, Brits actually getting a taste of real Frogs...

I was with a group and we went to the Brasserie Georges on Saturday 19 July 2014 to see this restaurant in all it's glory. The ceiling and lighting has art deco design from the 1930's our tour leader suggested we go for drink, which was around 9.45pm. We sat in the bar area, and watched all the comings and... More
