Tips from the Net @ Brasserie Georges

A meal at Brasserie George is much more than just food, it's an experience. As soon as you walk through the large double doors it's like you're transported back in time to an old time world of elegance. The restaurant is one huge room, feels almost like a wedding hall, and this vast space was completely full by dinner time, so make sure you arrive early or make reservations. The service was rather slow in the beginning, it took as almost thirty minutes till we could place an order, but the food was worth the wait. I started with a plate of a half dozen oysters, which were probably the best I've ever had. My partner had the pate en crute which was very good too. For the mains I had the onion soup, which was perfect and a very generous portion, while my partner had the sea bass over spinach in canelloni shells with a champagne sauce. The fish was cooked perfectly and the sauce was mouthwatering. We were still talking about this fish days later, it was that good. The dessert was nice, nothing special, frozen nougat in a berry couli. The prices here match their reputation, so it was not cheap but for the quality of the food it's reasonable.

Tourists and local mingle in a space with spectacularly high ceilings, served by swift and friendly staff. A genuine brasserie, you can only order the beers brewed on site (the saison went down a dream), and find plenty of French and Lyonnais classics on the menu. We went for a duck foie gras starter, but the star of the show was the Steak Tartare "préparé à table devant vous". Meaning he came with two raw chunks of minced meat, and prepared them expertly to our liking right there and then. Worth the detour if in Lyon. GooglePlace - March 2017

Beautiful building, a must see in that respect. Food is very traditional and hearty. Service a little stiff and formal. GooglePlace - March 2017
