Good atmosphere and food

Visited with work colleagues for a evening meal. The place is very big with seating in rows. At 7pm it was not very busy but by 9pm it was full. The food was fantastic with a very large menu. I had the escargot followed by the beef cheeks. Excellent evening and very good value.

We're a group of 20-ish people out for business. It was a nice place, and located close to the public transporation network in Lyon. But the food wasn't that good for the price we paid, compared what I could pay for good food elsewhere in Lyon - which is probably connected with the placement of the restaurant. The service was...

I went to Brasserie Georges and had a nice beer. I loved this place with such beautiful Art Déco ceiling... It is very close to Perrache train Station and you can even see this Brasserie when you drive on the motorway.

This is a place frequented by the locals. The art deco interior is very interesting. I was surprised by how big the place is. It is huge! Loud and noisy. A very boisterous atmosphere. The food was very good too. Nothing overly spectacular, but definitely a worthy experience all in all. If I were to go back to Lyon, I... More

First the decor, scenery of the place, which gets you immersed in the Lyon and France of another age. very typical the restaurant it is, so the food. I would advice practically everything on the menu. I have tried half of it and only the fatty part of certain dishes stopped me from enjoying the moment. if I want to... More

Very interesting and intriguing building and decoration. Really liked it. Not a fan of the service and the food but don't regret going there. Look out for the beautiful Music Box, one of the waiters will play a tune at some point!

My wife and I arrived at the Brasserie Georges about 2:00 PM. Of course, we could not be seated right away. We had also eaten there a few years ago and loved it (and tried once, foolishly a few years before that, arriving without reservations for lunch on New Year’s Day and they regretfully said they could not seat us.)...

The food here is outstanding, the service is amazing and the band that was playing made our dining experience even better! Every once in a while the lights would dim and the entire restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to some unknown patrons who were there celebrating. A truly fantastic place as it always has been since the 1800's. When you're there,... More

This restaurant received excellent reviews and was voted a must see in Lyon. To be honest though the food was ok and the staff relatively friendly there was nothing special about it. The table side beef tartare was over processed and the duck dish was too rich without something to balance it. The restaurant was full by the time we... More
