I had not been lucky enough to go to Brasserie Lipp until 2 weeks ago. Everyone who I spoke to said it was great, so I thought that our small company Christmas party would be well suited to such a venue. And it was... except the woman who is the Maître D is an absolute specimen, who made us feel... More

This brasserie is hidden inside a downtown Geneva mall. I saw the plaque for the restaurant on the outside of the mall, but it took me about 20 minutes to figure out where the restaurant was. I finally went into the mall, started climbing stairs (up two floors), and found the place. I was there early so the outside courtyard... More

I was never a great fan of Lipp.Always found it expensive and still do. Nevertheless our early dinner was really good in the winter garden with quick service and humerous waiters. Foie gras was not bad.Soupe de courge was also a good bet.My souris d'agneau was delicious and I would recommend it.My daughters had the steak tartare which is a... More

It has to be said that the ambience at Brasserie Lipp is rather lovely. The decor has a certain finesse, the tables are set at a reasonable distance from each other, the lighting is soft, etc. The waiters too are very attentive, knowledgeable and courteous. The jury is still out, however, as to whether it is good - or even... More

Relative to other Geneva restaurants this is a pretty good spot. During the holidays, they have a gorgeous Christmas decorations in one of their dining rooms which you can request to be seated in if you call 3-4 days in advance. Overall the restaurant, which is HUGE, was a perfect spot for a dinner with friends. They are open late,... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant while walking in downtown Geneva one afternoon and though that it seemed worth trying. We weren't very hungry and went for an appetiser each. Since we both have a sweet tooth, again we thought "what the heck, let's have some." When we looked at the menu, we couldn't agree on which to... More

It is a rather difficult place to find for somebody who is not from Geneva, being on the second floor of the Confédération Centre shopping centre. You will not regret the typical brasserie food such as bacon and liver, kidneys, "tête de veau" as well as more traditional food all of which is well prepared and presented. You have to... More

We had dinner here twice... once seven years ago on our first wedding anniversary, and again now for our eighth, it has been equally good both times, and I am thinking have I not been too eager to try new places on special occasions when one feels free to pay for it, I would have made this a tradition.

Brasserie Lipp is one of Geneva's institutions. Located in the town centre and bordering the Old town, it is a guaranteed good experience with consistent levels of quality food all year round. It is also one of the rare restaurants serving late and open on Sundays all day. Typical French brasserie decor and therefore a welcome escape place from other... More

I've been here many times and not once have I had a complaint. The food section is quite large, everything I've tasted has been good and the service is also quite good. It's also open almost all the time so quite convenient. The terrace in summer is quite large and not on the road (like many terraces in geneva) so... More
