“Good but expensive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I've visited this place around 8 times, the food is great but it is pricey. The lamb shank in amazing and I've found generally that the food is consistently good, however, the service is far from consistent. It ranges from welcoming, happy and friendly to miserable, rude and very slow. It really is the only criticism I have for this place. The atmosphere is always great because it's always busy and it really does have that Parisian bistro vibe (which is very welcomed in sleepy geneva!)

“French Bistro Style outside France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Having closed the entrance dood you feel like being in a french Bistro. The foie gras was simply delicious, the entrecote double to the point. All this plus a good french Sancerre completed the a good evening dinner with french atmosphere (in Geneva).

“French brasserie as it has to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Friendly, noisy, animated, full of locals - the excellent atmosphere of French brasserie! Excellent selection of oysters and crabs is definitely the gourmet destination of this place!

“Average. expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Quite disappointed at Lipp. Had heard great reviews from friends, so expected a more exclusive and relaxed ambience, unfortunately, that was not the case. Lighting is far too bright, menu is ok (seafood did look amazing though) and the service very erratic, almost nervous as if he was just wanting us to finish and onto the next guests, not relaxing. There are better restaurants in Gva.
