Very special "degustation" , very special wine , excellent deserts. Above all ,... More

As soon as you walk in, you know your gonna be spending a lot. Very elegant staff wait for you, very formal and well presented. The menu is large enough but you wont find anything below 50 Euro. Some dishes go up to 200 Euro. The food is French and the focus is on presentation as well as taste, the... More

We were there for lunch on our 1st day at Lyon. The restaurant was easy to find with great decor. Service was excellent and staff were friendly and professional. Had a big selection of wines and sommelier's recommendation was great, everybody love it. Food was more than superb, everything matches so well together and we truly had a 5 stars... More

If you are looking for a three star Michelin restaurant with impeccable service, a certified sommelier and creative, delicious, incredible food from start to finish, then this is the place! I recommend the more expensive fix price menu (approximately $200) to get a broader selection of specialties. Wine is extra and a wine pairing is also available. By the Way:... More

We expected more from a supposed 2-star restaurant in the world's gastronomic capital. The food was underwhelming and the staff, although attentive at times seemed ready to be rid of us towards the end, to the point we left half our cheese board untouched and are till waiting for the port list to go with the cheese.

When I travel to France, I look for restaurants that have fine and rare wines available at reasonable prices so this review may be of little interest to you unless you share that interest in wine. The food here is very good in a traditional style, with special mention to a Bresse chicken cooked in vin jaune and served in... More

Upon our arrival at La Mere Brazier, we were seated in a small room (where there was a lot of traffic as there was another room in behind, so patrons and servers had to go through the space we were in to access it). Both my husband and I immediately noticed a very musty smell in the room; we tried... More

Definitely one of the cullinary hi-lights of my life! My wife and I celebrated her birthday at this world class restaurant. The food is absolutely exquisite and the service was extremely well coordinated and seemless in it's presentation. The waiting staff and sommelier were very knowledgeable and did not miss any of the small details. We would recommend this dining... More

We had heard great things about La Mere Brazier but eating is believing. The reception was welcoming and the decor was minimalist harking back to the founder. The serving trays, plates and cutlery were works of art in and of themselves. The rooms are divided into arrangements for two - four tops. Upstairs they can accommodate larger parties. We had...
