So tempting to do the cliché Splendid at the Splendid - but it was... accommodating and very good. The staff space for me in my wheelchair and we all felt very satisfied come the end of the meal - again I'll return, It has good...atmosphere, a good feeling about it and that positive vibe seems to make everything work well. Again I didn't test the WC - my bladder must have grown as I know I'm not drinking any less!!!More

My first experience of this highly rated restaurant. The food, wine and service was excellent. The environment was very classy and near perfect.

I ordered the Poulet de Bresse; it was divine! I was with my French wife and three French friends who were familiar with this restaurant and recommended it for lunch. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the excellent service and the ambiance. Well worth a...visit. Reasonable prices for a top-class restaurant.More

A really classy dining experience. The decor of the brasserie is unique and welcoming. The staff were attentive, efficient and friendly and our food was served promptly. The dishes we chose were absolutely superb. It was interesting to watch the food being plated up in...the open kitchen. We arrived early, which was fortunate as we hadn’t booked and the restaurant was really full by the time we left. It is situated in a square with lots of restaurants, within walking distance from Lyon Part Dieu railway station. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

Good food well presented.. the poached egg in red wine devine. The service lacked a little attention to detail yet think that was due to language difference... worth a visit for lunch..

I came here with some colleagues to have dinner and it was a good experience. The restaurant is known for its chef (Mr Blanc) and has a diverse menu. I tried the following combination that I liked very much: Splendid Spring Salad - The famous...Bresse Chicken - Chocolate cream filled with nuts and ice cream. I can definetely recommend trying this place if you are in the area.More

What a disappointment for a chain of Mr.Blanc. The service was a disaster and the food not good , everything was old and not fresh. We order a “croustillant of fish” and were given some old fish with very old vegetables with on top some...crusty lumps. And we were charged on the bill higher prices that mentioned on the “ Carte menus “ To be told it was a computer mistake and they could not change it. So in summary you buy a product for a price to be charged at the end a higher price for the same product. Incredible. They gave us a free drink and a discount at the end after arguing with them. Not recommended if you want to keep sane.More

A very disappointing experience. The price quality ratio is not at the level this place pretend to be. We were left stranded waiting with no waiter in sight, for 25mns between our starter and the main dish, despite an empty restaurant. Their signature dish, the...Bresse chicken is really good, their foie gras expensive and absolutely average and the Baba cake is far under the taste and quality of its equivalent at Bocuse Brasserie. For the money spent here (70€ per person for the diner set menu and 2 glass of wine) you can get far better and have dinner in a stared restaurant in Lyon or east for far less at any highly reputed brasserie. A very disappointing restaurant for the price paid in quality, service and value.More

Amazing service and professionalism from the staff. Atmosphere is like a Brasserie, noisy, warm and simple. The paper to cover the table (and avoid changing the cloth table cover too often) looks and feels very cheap. An interesting open view on the kitchen was something...positive. The food is basic. Nothing special except the very high price. We came here for its reputation, but we all were so disappointed. No magic in any of the taste, average presentation, it is flat. Avoid the Baba au Rhum, worst Baba au Rhum I ever tried. No Rhum into it, not even 1%... not sure if they forgot it in our dessert. The brioche was giant and dry, floating in a plate full of a ridiculously over sweet sirop. Really I don’t know what this was... but definitely terrible.More
