We knew beforehand this was the largest dining hall Europe, and so it was! We visited as part of a group, and were seated in the group section at the back. The sheer size of the establishment made me feel like being in an enormous cafeteria. The service was excellent and fast, but I personally was not overwhelmed by the... More

Excellent food in a beautiful old style brasserie where waiting on table is a profession. Friendly atmosphere, vibrant and run with military precision.

We booked for 7.30 and it was quiet but within 1/2 hour it was really buzzing. We started with the onion soup served at the table. We should have been warned about the amount - it was far too much and it took time to eat. The waiter cam back several times to see if we were finished and in... More

You only receive decent service if you arrive after 7pm. We arrived at 6.25pm and were told that we could only order the set menus and nothing from the ala carte till 7pm. Waiter was rude and forgot to serve us our wine and water. Things got better from 7pm when the rest of the service crew entered the restaurant.... More

We returned to Brasserie Georges after a gap of 10 years so looking forward to our previous wonderful experience. The ambience remained unchanged, the menu was not as good (admittedly not to our tastes) but the principal failing was the poor service. Our cold entrée was long in coming (only a melon), our mains arrived before the melon was eaten... More

We were only in Lyon for one night and it was our first night in France, and had dreamed of this meal for a long time. We were not disappointed. We tried several appetizers, steak tartare, pork,sausage,cheese plate, a chocolate sweet dessert and the house red Syrah de Papa's. Every single mouthful was scrumptious. The waiter was wonderful and spoke... More

This is a large [400seat] bistro with its own brewery. Doing good French country food with some German/Alsace influence. Despite the size the service was good and the food and beer were excellent. I whole heartedly endorse anything with Foie Gras and the Steak Tartar.
