Do not miss a restaurant from Napoleon's days; ooh la la!

It is epic architecture, tuxedo-ed waiters, 200 diners , and a menu to match everyone's palate. It is a very relaxed French brassiere and it makes francophone and English speakers very welcome.

Fabulous place full of atmosphere and old world charm. We were here on a dull Monday evening and Brasserie George really lifted our spirits. Busy, bustling, but with attentive service, the atmosphere and decor are wonderful! The food is also pretty good with an emphasis on charcrouterie! Well worth a visit.

We had to wait but enjoyed waiting at the bar drinking Georges own pale ale. The fresh pale ale was a great teaser before sauerkraut and local sausages. My recommendation is to try the sausages, they are perfect for lunch. They system for waiting is great and modern electronic devises tell you when the table is ready. The waiters are... More

Having dined at Brasserie Georges on three separate occasions in the last 2 years, we can confirm that its reputation for food is very well deserved. Each time the quailty of the ingredients and of the cooking has been high. And the service is some of the best that can be found - efficient, discrete and polite. Coupled with the... More

I have never been in such a huge restaurant! The service was excellent, the food and wine a delight. The first dimming of the lights for a 'happy Birthday' sparkler topped cake was entertaining.... By the time you get to the 7th, the sparkle has Lost its shine a bit! Also, the restaurant ordered us a 6 seater taxi.... But... More

I have been three times to Brasserie Georges, and it's always a pleasure, their homemade beer is excellent, selection of food and wine also. It is not an intimate setting but one for the overall experience and for celebrations. It is a huge restaurant but the service is wonderful. Enjoy!

I dined and lunched at "la Brasserie". The lunch today was better than the Dinner yesterday (a slice of beef with cheese was not so inspiring) . Yet today a thick lamb chop on a thik cus-cus disk was excellent as it was the accompanying Cote du Rhone red.

Reading the reviews both French and English and especially those who have rated this Brasserie at the lower levels I wonder what my fellow reviewers are doing or thinking? This establishment can seat 300. That should be a big, neigh massive clue - it is not nor does it appear to be trying to be an intimate eating experience. The... More

This place is so beautiful, but they have really gone too far in trying to serve thousands of people. You really feel like a number here. Plus I had a steak that was sinewy and tough. I don't recommend it.

OVER 200000 SERVED PER YEAR.... EPIC STEAK TARTARE, CHOUCROUTE, and other local specialties. In house brewery with very nice beers. And when it's your BDAY, mention it to the waitor who will dimm the lights in the whole restaurant, and play a happy bday tune on the hand organ. Kids go bonkers when this happens.
