There is something for everyone at Lipp's!

Lipp is usually always busy and with it's really wide menu everyone will find something to enjoy.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at the Hotel Schweizerhof. We had asked about a good sea food restaurant within walking distance of the hotel, and this hit the mark on both counts. In fact it exceeded our hopes and expectations. The atmosphere was bistro-like, lively and busy, with an extensive menu, prompt and efficient (and in... More

For my birthday, my grandfather took me for lunch at Lipp on a rainy day. Ordered a salad Mesclun as a starter and snails as a main dish. Both were absolutely delicious, especially the snails with the garlic, butter and herb sauce. Thank you again for a delightful meal! We'll definitely be back with Friends next time!

The food is always impeccable in this Geneva icon. Professional servers guide you through an extensive menu heavy with crustaceans and fish, well rounded with even a vegetable cous cous. The wine list is extensive and very well priced at the top end. Very lively on Sunday nights which ca e rather soporific in Geneva. As everything in Geneva, expect... More

Probably the most known restaurant in Geneva for a business lunch with clients. And absolutely a great wine list and food selection. But unless you go for oysters and Montrachet, the kitchen's fare has become dull, greasy, over-cooked and lacking inspiration. Sure, if you're taking your 85 year old client who's been eating there for 40 years, but absolutely not... More

On the opposite to Lipp in Paris, the one in Geneva serves sublime dishes with high quality product. And, the waiters are polite and friendly. There is also a great option for vegetarians, like me. The wine list offers a great Swiss selection, which is enjoyable. But it is rather expensive...

Not my first time here at the Lipp!! In the first time experience was not so good, specially dur to the fact the restaurant was crowded and the weather was terrible (rainy and cold and we had to eat outside)! Today weather was good, so we stayed outside... I ordered the "magret de canard" which was well prepared except for... More

Lipp happens to be in Geneva but the atmosphere is decidedly French as are probably also most of the waiters who commute from nearby France. The service is quick and the food first class...things like "steak tartare" or mussel soup don't come any better. Lipp is trendy, well situated smack in the middle of town and unless you come early... More

The title is how this restaurant was described to me and I have to agree. The menu is extensive, the food is nice, staff friendly. Good selection of wine. It's busy but large so we didn't feel rushed. Prices were reasonable for Geneva.
