I was doubtful that a large scale restaurant with a 2-century rep could be anything but a tourist trap. But -- our first choice in the neighborhood was closed for a private party so we sauntered over. With 500 seats we had no wait. The...More

Beside the little " bouchons" which have made Lyon famous, there are great brasseries like this one, the best, maybe. The decor is fro the 1930's, superb; the waiter, in white and black, are quick and helpful; the food has beautiful UPS, and little downs,...More

Very large place with little atmosphere. Although packed with people service was fairly fast. When cooking food in such quantities it cannot be really good but they did a decent job. It was nice to visit once but Lyon has so many better and nicer...More

The cast Art Decided interior is very impressive. There is a large selection on the menu, including many Lyonais specialities. There is also n extensive wine list. We were greeted quickly and seated. I did notice however that the service became a little more perfunctory...More

Lovely Art Deco interior, generous portions and great service. France is all about wine but since they are a brasserie, you must order the beer. And eat choucroute!

This restaurant had all the things I wanted in a French restaurant: a large ornate building, waiters in bow ties, elaborate furnishings and regional dishes. Not only was the food great but the dinner was a wonderful experience. The dining hall is so large that...More

There's seating for around 500 people in this establishment and the service is excellent. If you're in Lyon for a couple of nights, it's worth the stop. The pork mignon was terrific but the steak tartare was average. The wine is well priced, but skip...More
