Whether it is the cosy ambiance in the dead of winter or the breezy coolness of the outdoor terrace in summer, it is hard to ever go wrong here. The food is consistently excellent. The service equally good. It is also perfect for anything ranging from business meals to special occasions with friends and family. Meat dish classics are as... More

Called in on the off chance at a Friday lunchtime. Restaurant was very busy which is often a good sign. We had not booked but were found a table on the terrace. We were not offred a plat du jour so ordered off the main menu. Food was very well prepared and tasty. Fare was slightly more expensive than I... More

This is a pleasant French brasserie in downtown Geneva. It has a rich menu with great variety. I like to have lunch whenever I visit town during the day. Also an early dinner or a very late one. I remember they close after 11 PM which is unusual in Geneva. It is located at the confederation centre downtown. I prefer... More

i've been here several times, and repeated my visit recently. Food, as always, nothing to say - very good. But, i guess they should improve a bit the service. We've been waiting abt 15-20 mint's to get menu, after all went more or less ok, and at the end again waiting 35mnt or even more for tea and bill.... I... More

One of the best-known restaurant in Geneva if you are looking for traditional french food or seafood. A lot of choices but everything is really good and well-served. The waiters are always there for you and are very polite. It can look quite expensive but this is proportional to the service and the quality of the food. I strongly recommand... More

I ate here with several business colleagues on a recent trip to Geneva. Restaraunt is well situated at the bottom of the old town, a little bit of an uphill climb from the river. Modern on the outside and well appointed on the inside. It was a chilly evening so there was no outdoor dining. As a result, it was... More

We loved the Lipp in Geneva so we decided to try out the Zurich branch for once. To be surprised it is not at all as crowded, and in a much nicer location and layout. Food is as delicious and fresh, although it is more on the fusion side. Service can be friendly. Great thing is that it also opens... More

I know that dining in Switzerland is expensive, and Brasserie Lipp is no exception. Yes the service was very professional and polished. The food was not very memorable. The ambience - like a high end shopping mall....which is where it is. Next time I am in Geneva, will skip this eatery and try to find something a little more casual.

As a "regular" patron I can only recommend Lipp for casual to formal meals all day around, all prices, and efficient waiters. Noisy but lively inside, the summer terrasse is top, covered during winter.

The Brasserie has and excellent reputation. The reason is the quality of the food and quality of service. They have an extensive repertoire of food choices. My personal preference is the Sea Bass. The desserts are fantastic as is the wine. However, none of it comes cheap but as they say you get what you pay for. Brasserie Lipp is... More
