Not an ideal vegetarian haunt, with veal calfs head, snails, frogs, bone marrow, fois grais, steak tartar etc etc on the menu. Even so, we arrived early (about 6.30) and the place was practically empty. Fantastic original art deco interior (loved that). There was 8 of us and we were seated quickly by a very pleasant waiter who took our... More

A huge 'barn' sized room – with somewhat OTT décor but it adds to the ambiance. The restaurant was packed and the staff, of which there appeared to be hundreds, worked flat-out to minimise delays. The atmosphere was electric. On our visit I think everyone in Lyon celebrating a birthday was here. A nice touch, and a good piece of... More

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
