The Brasserie Lipp is within a large commercial center in the business section of Geneva and takes up most of the atrium of the second floor. Having been to many great French restaurants all over France I was curious to try Lipp as I had never visited any of their locations in Paris. I was not disappointed. The food here... More

Meeting a friend for lunch in a super cold windy day in January. Made a booking with 10 min notice. We were greeted at the entrance. Our coats were taken. The table was soi tiny we wanted to take two. Waiters kind, friendly and quick. We decided to have the sauerkraut. Lovely. Excellent quality (not so sauer!) and the accompanying... More

Crab & Lobster were tasty but expected something more for the high pricing. Didn't particularly stand out. Creme Brûlée desert was seriously good, as were the profiteroles.

We eat here and in their branch in Zurich every time we go to Switzerland, four or five times a year. The food is good and there is a good atmosphere. My only issue is the staff asking if I wished to add the service charge when paying with a card. The swiss include service and I will always leave... More

We were late looking desperately for a place for lunch on Christmas Eve, and chanced upon this gem. Vibrant atmosphere, very busy even at 3 pm and really good efficient service. The oysters and mussels were excellent - our best meal this holiday!

One of my top 5 restaurants for 2016 having been at the Lipp 3 times during 2016 and while on business travel in Geneva. Outstanding menu selection for both lunch and dinner. The very best Veal Milanese outside of Milan. Order with mashed potatoes and a glass of house red and you cannot go wrong. The Dover sole is also... More

Lipp is a classic, both in Geneva and Zurich. The one in Geneva doesn't look inviting from the outside but this shouldn't put anybody off. Once in, one feels in an authentic brassiere with a nice decor, French service and most importantly a classical menu. Quality is constantly good and the wine list is also very good. A very good...
