My parents and I (who are African Americans) are currently vacationing in Zurich. We decided to check out this restaurant at the recommendation of our tour guide. We love seafood and were excited to check out Brassiere Lipp. Our excitement turned into disappointment when it became clear to us that our server did not want to wait on us. After... More

We have been twice in this restaurant and it is one of my favorite in Zurich. Oysters are fresh and delicious and seafood is cooked simply but with best ingredients. I also like that everything was prepared in a light way so after having a sizeable meal, there was no remorse regarding the calories. Wine list is great. Although it... More

Unfriendly service personnel. Quite harsh and cold. To begin they brought us bread... half of it was hard No friendly smile, just like automats. No advice. The food was ok, but not "delicious", what could be expected in such a restaurant (we had: sole meunière and some other fish. The sole was not tender. Price is far too high in... More

It's strange, but two restaurants LIPPS in Zurich and Geneve are very different even to have the similar menu , each of them has his own fleur, and Zurich location in some cases is more attractive, especially if you are involved in business processes, I very recommend for business lunch set of huitres , bulots and other sea food representatives,...

Brassiere Lipp is a Zürich institution. Have visited many times. It's has that French Brassiere ambience that you only find here, and everything on the menu is delicious! It's a great place for lunch or dinner. Very accommodating team, typical Zürich prices, quality food, quality service. In the heart of the centre.

Service was ok, the food was at best average (bread is really bland) while being disproportionately expensive. Mussels were disappointing, overcooked and with little flavour. Tuna tartar contained almost as much avocado as tuna. Not recommended.
