Brasserie Lipp is one of the very few restaurants in the heart of Zurich that offers a wide variety of really good fresh fish along with other meat dishes in its French menu. I like having lunch at Brasserie Lipp at Saturday's after a nice walk at the city centre and the shops with family and friends. The restaurant is... More

This was our third visit to Brasserie Lipp this year and once again it was superb. I have covered everything in past 2016 reviews. You must not go to Zurich without experiencing the atmosphere and incredible food at this Restaurant! On this occasion waitress Mira served on table and was exceptional. Booking is advisable as you won't want to be... More

Went again last December 24 for a Christmas eve lunch with a friend and as I'm on diet, eating no sauce, no potatoes, no noodles and only grilled meat, grilles vegetables and rice, I asked them to cook for me a special main-course... which they did without any trouble and it was excellent - As usual

After so much hype about Lipp thought we had to treat ourselves only to be disappointed- cold food- poor service and outrageous prices - never again

Terrible atmosphere, awful crowd, posh in a very Victoria Bekham kinda way ;) food was totally overpriced and about the parisian feeling; the only authentic thing was the beef tartar- if you have ever been to Paris you know what I mean😉 never order one untill you know it is the best in town! But the waiter was very friendly.

Dear Jonas A, Thank you for your comment on Tripadvisor. Your description is rather confusing and does not tell reader of this column what you really experienced. What has Victoria Bekham to do with the Brasserie Lipp in Zurich? Posh? Overpriced? Can you further explain? À bientôt, NB: The Brasserie Lipp in Zurich very successful for the last 25 year,...

The service was poor in the sense that the waiter didn't pay attention to us and forgot about us various times. The food didn't taste very good.

I went there twice, their seafood dishes were good, their beef dishes were beyond expectation too. I've tried their oyster, lobster, steaks, beef tartare and they haven't let me down yet.
