i've been here several times, and repeated my visit recently. Food, as always, nothing to say - very good. But, i guess they should improve a bit the service. We've been waiting abt 15-20 mint's to get menu, after all went more or less ok, and at the end again waiting 35mnt or even more for tea and bill.... I saw, next table to us, people also were complaining about the time they are waiting.
It is just disappointing for this place and standard of food. I like Lipp and would recommend it to friends but of course, i wish people work a bit better, as far as it's not cheapest place in GVA. Service should be on the level.

One of the best-known restaurant in Geneva if you are looking for traditional french food or seafood. A lot of choices but everything is really good and well-served. The waiters are always there for you and are very polite. It can look quite expensive but this is proportional to the service and the quality of the food. I strongly recommand it. The russian tartare served with caviar and sour cream is delicious.

I ate here with several business colleagues on a recent trip to Geneva. Restaraunt is well situated at the bottom of the old town, a little bit of an uphill climb from the river. Modern on the outside and well appointed on the inside. It was a chilly evening so there was no outdoor dining. As a result, it was packed inside, but we had made a reservation and were seated right away. Large menu with good selection of seafood and other cuisine. The meal itself was terrific. Good wine selection. Service was just OK. At times we felt as if we were inconveniening the waitstaff by asking questions, asking for bread etc. We felt the meal and drinks were fairly priced given the excellent quality. Overall definitely worth a repeat visit and certainly worth a try if you are staying in central Geneva.

We loved the Lipp in Geneva so we decided to try out the Zurich branch for once. To be surprised it is not at all as crowded, and in a much nicer location and layout. Food is as delicious and fresh, although it is more on the fusion side. Service can be friendly. Great thing is that it also opens on Sunday which comes as handy when no one wants to cook.

I know that dining in Switzerland is expensive, and Brasserie Lipp is no exception. Yes the service was very professional and polished. The food was not very memorable. The ambience - like a high end shopping mall....which is where it is.
Next time I am in Geneva, will skip this eatery and try to find something a little more casual.
