Had a good lunch here the day we arrived. Very busy restaurant which does amazing seafood. Good choice of wines at ok prices for Zurich. Very tasty food and good helpful staff.
Would have liked to go up and see the Jules Verne Bar and observatory on the top floor but although they offered to show us we intended to go back in the evening and didn't make it.

Went for dinner at this restaurant for a meeting, and was delighted to see some of the items on the menu. Food was very good, the service was okay. Compact space and you sit very close to the table next to you, but overall it was nice.

Brasserie Lipp is best in the month containing an "R", meaning that they serve oysters. Their seafood platters (plat royal, imperial ect) are classics in Zurich and Brasserie Lipp is famous for it.

Generally the food is unpretentious but of very high quality. I had the tripes in tomato sauce last time and they were extremely tasty.

The service is sometimes a bit slow and there are often a lot of people in the restaurant. It can be quite noisy, but that's how a French brasserie is!

Place definitely recommended.

Recommended by our hotel, we had an excellent mid-day meal here on a Sunday at 2:00. It has a classic brasserie ambience and although busy it was easy to converse. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The food choices are extensive, particularly the seafood plates. The wine list is also extensive with Swiss and European wines by the glass (and featured wines by the glass), half-bottles and bottles with a wide price range. We had a Swiss filet of beef (tender and tasty) and a pasta with chanterelle mushrooms (creamy) and small mixed salad with pumpkin seeds (very fresh). I had read comments on "Zürich prices" and this restaurant seems to fit in this broad category. The apple strudel with vanilla sauce (available in small and large sizes) was warm and superb. The coffee was also of excellent quality. The meal service was well paced. We would certainly return.

The restaurant has a nice location downtown Zürich. You may think you are in France. However, the restaurant is always full, and the service is relatively slow. We had moules and frites, which were fine but a little sandy.What bothered me most was that the salad was not fresh and had a lot of brown spots. In summary: ok but no must have!
