Location and contact

Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890. It still has the red painted wood store front, and the original sign "Maison Lyonnaise".Frédéric Thévenet, head of the brigade, prepares "good, old fashioned, hearty food" but adds a modern touch. Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes

Had dinner here and found the offerings to be most delectable. The service was excellent as well. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Even though we did not have a reservation, the hostess did not rush us at all.

Very short menu of traditional Lyonnaise food. Most dishes are good just very little choice. Service is certainly not good. We booked a table at 9:30 and they rushed us as kitchen closes at 10! And it took ages for them to bring the drinks.

The food at this quaint spot is a mixed bad: some dishes such as the sweetbreads are excellent, others like the veal are tough and perhaps more cow than calf. The fish is not quite as fresh an one might hope. Service is slow and...More

Similar to some of the reviews below I found this restaurant to be quite overrated and riding on it’s status as a popular restaurant with a good reputation. It had quite a confused feel to it: the setting was quaint and understated, which was refreshing,...More

Personally found the Aux Lyonnais overrated. The quality of the food did not meet my expectations and felt rather bland if I am completely honest. The restaurant itself was stunning and the waiters were great.

This is a quintessential French bistro. Our server, Thomas, was very attentive and friendly. He was knowledgeable about the menu and happy to help us with our selections. The wine list offers many choices but we chose the house Côtes du Rhône which was excellent....More

Aux Lyonnais has been around forever for good reason. It is excellent. The menu is limited but the selections are classic. We ordered frog's legs and charcuterie for starters and quenelles and sweetbreads for our main plates and loved every bite.

We ate here upon the recommendation of our concierge. While we liked the atmosphere and service, the menu was very limited. There was really nothing I wanted to eat. We both had the special Lyonnaise pot which was some kind of mixture of pork shank...More
