Beautiful

In the most beautiful art nouveau atmosphere, excellent beer and good food for a reasonable price. The place is literally huge, but nevertheless always pretty full; be ready for a special treat if it's your birthday!

It's not my favourite kind of food, either, but I thoroughly enjoyed the lentil salad followed by roast lamb, washed down with the house beer and some good burgundy. The "excellent" rating is not for the food, which was "very good", but for the experience: a majestic interior with fabulous turn of the century light fixtures, art nouveau trims, and... More

The dinner was great. My meal was perfect. The service was great. It was relaxing after a long day of traveling from the US. The potatoes dauphinois were outstanding.

Brasseries Georges is a part of Lyon's gastronomy and hyistory. It was my second time there and stepping in in this huge restaurant is always impressive. Food is great and the atmosfere very peculiar, with probably too much light, but a great caracter. Don't forget to taste its great beer!

Had a very enjoyable meal here. The food and wine were good, however It is the atmosphere and bustle of the old ballroom venue that stands out, (complete with slightly snooty French waiter, but that's also part of the fun)

We arrived at about 1700hrs and there were only two other diners. So the atmosphere was lacking somewhat. But the food was good and the service excellent. We enjoyed the meal and thought it good value.

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.
