“Very fishy things!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Lipp is an offshoot of the famous Brasseri Lipp in Paris and is just as good.
The seafood is excellent and very fresh and the service professional. If you feel it is a night for meat then Lipp will not disapoint, I had excellent rognons de veau in a mustard sauce the last time I was there.

“A brasserie like in Paris”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

There are plenty of good restaurants in Geneva. But few are open late in the evening. Lip is the opportunity to have dinner after attending cultural events. You have all the features of a well known brasserie in Paris including a lot of customers ... so book before.

“FEW LIGHTS AND MANY SHADOWS...”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

LIPP is probably one of the trendiest restaurants in Geneva, but on a strictly culinary offers in my opinion an undeserved fame.
I was incredibly surprised by the location, inside a shopping center, being a singular solution at least for a restaurant that wants to be classy. The restaurant is invariably crowded and very noisy, the tables are small and very close together, which does not allow any privacy: the atmosphere is chaotic and very little overall relaxing. The service is professional, but rather dismissive.
Fish, shellfish and oysters are very fresh (and scenographically shown and partially prepared at the entrance): the taste of the food is definitively good, but the style of cooking is rather banal and impersonal whilst the level of presentation is decidedly modest.
Good wine list.
Overall prices close to those of a jewelry store...

“A Classic”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Parisian Bistro style, with a nice selection of sea food, and an interesting wine list. In summer terrace outside. Efficient service. Noisy in the main dining area.
