Wow. Everything was fantastic. Service was elegant. Food was superb. The Sommelier gave us a great education in wine. (We asked for it.)

An awesome experience, Tartare amuse, Foie Gras and Artichokes, fish course, Veal, cheese course and Grand Marnier Souffle everything was perfect. La Mere Brazier is where France's most famous Chef, Paul Bocuse apprenticed (most famous next to Escoffier). The standards have been upheld, a must do if in the Lyon area.

This is a Michelin-starred restaurant, so we were hoping for an outstanding experience. We had an average experience, not outstanding. We ordered a type of chicken that is cooked inside a huge balloon - I'm not sure what the balloon was made of, but the balloon itself was not edible. So the presentation was striking, as this great balloon was... More

La Mere is lovely restaurant, replete with crisp white table linens and an attentive staff. Our tasting menu gave us the opportunity to sample some of the restaurant's many offerings, and none disappointed. The dessert souffle was a special treat!

A truly great meal. Veal chop for two as the main was the best veal ever. Stylish dining room, great service. Two stars are well deserved.

The restaurant was in an inviting home with different rooms giving it a cozy, intimate feeling. We had the tasting menu in the classic style. It was creative with a beautiful presentation. We especially enjoyed the artichoke starter. The portion sizes seemed inappropriately large for both a meat and fish course. We were impressed when the chef came out to... More

One of the finest dining experiences I have had! La Mere Brazier has several menu options and one is free to choose any combination. One can pick from a tasting menu, a seasonal menu, two classic menus, and as if that were not enough, there is the a la carte option. We had the classic menu, every bite of which... More

At least for the moment I write this review, I admit this is the fanciest gourmet experience I've ever had in my life: the restaurant is a house (so you literally feel like home) and is elegantly decorated, we were a big group so they took us into a special room where there was only us. The servers are absolutely... More
