    A good "Brasserie", classic, in the strategic heart of the city. let's say : Nothing more, nothing less.. A plus for the terrasse which was pleasant.

    The food was spectacular. Fresh mushroom risotto and the three chocolate mousse were the stars of the menu for us!

    Formal ,traditional, both the service and the quality of the food. An international rather than local restaurant, with good quality wines by the glass

    Really good food, on a nice place! Unfortunately we weren't treated that kindly like other guests. Maybe cause we booked via La fourchette...

    Hello, The experience was good. This place was recommended by my French teacher and it was not disappointing at all. It was a very good evening that we had. We were seated outside in the non-smoking area, so since it was street facing, it was a little noisy at times that caused some confusion while ordering (this was corrected) but apart from this, the ambiance was wonderful. The food was wonderful and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people. Thanks,

    Beverage is far too expensive. Menu ok. Waiter was good but the manager had a serious authority problem with his employee: he criticized him in front of the guest. Not the fine art to communicate.

About the restaurant

SITUATION - C'est entre les quais Saint-Antoine et Jean Moulin que se trouve le restaurant L'Institution, dans le 2ème arrondissement de Lyon. Dans un cadre baroque et cosy, banquettes de velours et moquette au sol, c'est le 1er établissement signé Jacques Garcia à Lyon. Talentueux, il est l'un des grands de l'empire du design parisien, et partage volontiers son savoir-faire du goût français.

AU MENU - Et dans l'assiette, c'est aussi bon que le décor : escalope de foie gras poêlée, pavé de saumon bio rôti, entrecôte Black Angus… Pour finir sur une belle note sucrée, on vous suggère le gros macaron à la fraise Tagada et framboise, le chocolat viennois revisité par le Chef ou le fondant au Nutella tiède.

EN BREF - Une terrasse chauffée vous accueille, été comme hiver. Et en plus, le service est continu. On n'hésite plus, entre amis ou en famille : L'Institution est un passage obligé à Lyon.
