Bustling charming restaurant in Lyon that serves up tasty food. Huge Art Deco chamber with a great atmosphere. Had typical French fare- crab to start, fillet steak cooked to perfection, baked Alaska ( must order at start of meal) and local red wine. The din of chatter and cutlery halted when the lights dimmed to celebrate a birthday. Everyone clapped... More

Having read the reviews, I tried to keep an open mind as big and noisy is not really my thing. We tried to make a reservation here for Friday night but it was full, so we came on Sunday evening when it was much quieter. Go with an empty stomach as the portions are generous. We shared a starter of... More

Big and beautiful in size, menu and service! Brasserie Georges is one of the oldest and largest Brasserie in France which at first made us think that because of its size it may not be able to live up to its reputation. Wrong! The ambiance, the decor, the food, the excellent speedy service, all first class. A must try.

The ethos and style of this restaurant probably has not changed since it first opened at the end of the 19th century It is almost liking stepping in back in time to a period when the customer was king and service was indeed service Added to that a fine menu and superb surroundings and you have a winner. I had... More

As an upscale restaurant this was fine dining at it's best! Service was excellent, menu very interesting including veal's head and pork chitterlings, A large dining room, all the tables full, and never felt crowded or rushed. Reservations are best. Bon A'petite.

A well known with an old style feel from the decor to the wait staff. It is a large restaurant that has been popular for generations. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this charming place.

We had no problem getting a reservation. We picked for our final night since it was recommended in Yelp and we wanted something with walking distance of our hotel. Others have noted the large dining room, which as an American I did not find all that noisy compared to restaurants at home. For a big touristy place I was shocked... More

Big and busy, the reviews suggested we were in for and experience. Not a good one unfortunately, they failed to deliver our entree before the mains ....... Whoops !! Really, I didn't want escargots after the Duck ....... Nor did my wife, after her scallops. Speaking of which, 4 lonely scallops and some sauce for $30.00 is a bit rich.... More
