Great food for a more traditional and upscale atmosphere

Our family friends took us to this restaurant for dinner. To me, it's very classic and nostalgic in an european way in terms of its interior and look. Food was good. I ordered beef tartar, and it was probably one of the best that I've ever had. Kids menu, e.g. chicken nuggets and fries are a bit... read more

Lipp is a very upmarket Brasserie, probably more suited to merchant bankers with corporate credit cards the tourists. Service was very poor, but as one would hope for the price food was better then average.

We had eaten at the brasserie lipp in Paris before two years ago, so we knew it was going to be good. The steak is excellent and the rest of the food is too. The service was good and it was clean and it felt just like Paris.

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

Wonderful meal - my friend and I shared a bottle of Sancerre and raw oysters which were lovely. I then had the grilled sole with boiled potatoes. My friend had tuna tartare and we shared asparagus. The food was so delicious. Although I was full, I made room for the rhubarb crisp top with sorbet. The restaurant provided good quality... More

Very welcoming when we walked in, but the service was a turn-off. The fish was excellent, but offset by poor service. Very busy and extremely noisy - not a pleasant atmosphere, particularly for the price. Would not go back.

It's one of our absolute favorite restaurant in town. Friendly staff, quick and relaxed service and really good food quality! You need to try the cold Lipp platters, they are just delicious! You can have a drink at the Jules Verne Bar first and then go downstairs for dinner. What I really appreciate, also without a table reservation they always... More
