This is one of those places where you go, have something to eat and then forget about. The setting is nice, but food and service is just average. Nothing to remember neither from a positive or negative point of view.

This bocuse brasserie was supposed to be a good restaurant: if the service was satisfactory and the premises worth seing the food was extremely disappointing . i took the menu of the day : serrano ham with melon, followed with a local chicken and dessert. The melon was not ripe, the serrano ham mediocre, the chicken overcooked. Bocuse is probably... More

Nice setting, average service, food well cooked but lacked the wow factor! We only had the menu of the day!

We had to wait at the bar for a few minutes before we were seated - the view of the open kitchen was so good I didn't want our table to be ready- free entertainment! It was like watching a dance with the fastest choreography - the team of chefs and servers are superb - not one of them seem... More

This is a Bocuse's franchise. The food is OK but not that great and it's quite expensive. But the very problem is that the room is very very noisy which is a problem for business lunch or even family or friend's one. You got a real headache because of this.

If you do not want to eat in a top notch restaurant but still want to enjoy some good traditional Lyonaise cooking in a nice setting, L'Est should be on your short list of restaurants. The price / quality relationship is good and the service is well managed. The cherry on the cake is the little electrical train going around... More

We visited this restaurant, part of the magnificent Gare de L'Est building, some years ago. It is still immaculate, offering excellent food at reasonable prices. Food is quality brasserie fare, staff excellent. A half hour stroll from the river Saône, with several brasseries around the area. It's fun, very French and has a miniature train running around the cornice!

My wife and I visited here based on the fact that it was owned by renowned chef Paul Bocuse. Food was average, service was terrible. I wouldn't recommend this place because frankly it is below the standard Lyon has to offer. There are plenty more restaurants that are cheaper and better quality with friendly service. Not sure what Paul Bocuse... More

First impressions are busy but efficient - a table is found, we are seated and then a wait. Our orders for two (specific) glasses of white wine as an aperitif ar taken, but then they don't come. Followed by confusion about which wines? When they arrive they are ice cold and we wonder that the condrieu tastes unlike any we... More

This place came recommended by locals. The food was quite good, but the positive stops there. This resto seats a lot of people, I would say over 100. It's very very loud and not in a "good atmosphere" way. The French's reputation for, low-quality service was well maintained in t his setting. The decor was nice, but so are most... More
