About the restaurant L'institution

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.

Well, I wonder where my 30% discount went? The one that Trip Advisor allures people with?

The server was quiet bite bad, always asking three or four times to repeat what's we asked because he forgot.
Concerning the food, it's good concerning simple menu but when it's a little bite complicated it's too expansive for what's it is.

There was only one other couple in the main restaurant. As a result there was little atmosphere.

Nous avons passé un bon dans ce restaurant. Le cadre est vraiment très beau, le personnel sympathique, Le repas était bon. Nous avons faillit ne pas bénéficier de la réduction, car les plats que nous avons choisis n'étaient pas "du bon coté de la carte", mais comme personne ne nous a prévenu au moment de passer commande, elle nous a été accordée.

Super slow. Waiting hour and half for food, wasting time. Bad service and taste. It's not worth for money.

Great start of our gastronomical journey. Foie gras for starters was phenomenal. The portion was huge compared to the US. The vino was ok. We opted for the house Rose and Rhone. House Rhone was better. The rest of the meal was ok. Had the Club sandwich with truffles. They are huge portions.
