A very nice and trendy brasserie, especially a place where you'll see bankers, financial people and lawyers, maybe even some local Genevois VIPs. Somewhat pricy but food and variety is pretty good. Open late so ideal if you see an evening movie prior.

Good food, good service. Terrible seating, people are too close to each other. Very noisy. A place some go to be seen. An address.

Ordered fresh oysters, veal steak, salad and escargot. I must say none of them was disappointing. All yummies!

This is a restaurant that is in a great retreat. The restaurant is very large, yet intolerable overcrowding, Distance between a table to table, 2 cm only, and to get into your place the waiter drags the table out.... This does not allow for a quiet conversation or some romance.... The price is very expensive, and if you do not... More

Even though the only reason we found it was that it was the only place we could find open, it was worth the visit. If you don't like things that crawl along the bottom of the ocean, the steak was delicious and perfectly cooked.

Like the restaurants of the same name in Paris and Brussels, Brasserie Lipp is known for first-rate food, particularly seafood. This Lipp is pretty much always busy, with service that's quite French (as in frequently aloof, but very knowledgeable about both food and wine). It is expensive, but then, in Geneva, restaurants pretty much always are. One quibble: the volume... More

I am slightly biased in my opinion about this place, as it often is similar to sunday brunch with friends, and therefore equals good times. Great atmosphere, and the posh usually become more relaxed. Stiff upper lip loosens up. Service is really pro and friendly. One of the few restaurants that actually employs people who have received proper training! recommended... More

Lipp is an offshoot of the famous Brasseri Lipp in Paris and is just as good. The seafood is excellent and very fresh and the service professional. If you feel it is a night for meat then Lipp will not disapoint, I had excellent rognons de veau in a mustard sauce the last time I was there.

There are plenty of good restaurants in Geneva. But few are open late in the evening. Lip is the opportunity to have dinner after attending cultural events. You have all the features of a well known brasserie in Paris including a lot of customers ... so book before.
