    This restaurant has managed extremely well the succession from one iconic restaurant in Lyon for several decades. This is great balance between history and modernity. The menu of the day is solid value for money and the service is vert user friendly.

    the restaurant was sophisticated with a beautiful decoration. Staff was really welcoming. although there was no English menu, the staff translated and explained in English. I could enjoy the signature dish.

    The food was spectacular, as was the service once seated. A small item that holds me back from a perfect rating...as the first to show at opening I was asked to sit and wait so my table could be checked, but then the next couple was seated immediately as I sat and waited.

    Everything was special, everyone was welcoming. Léon. De Lyon was everything it was advertised to be. I would say it is a definite “don’t miss” when in Lyon.

    Absurdly good food, and excellent service. We throughly enjoyed our set dinner menu and the cocktail bar was amazing. It was our last dinner in Lyon and we couldn’t have been happier.

    A historic restaurant which has been renovated tastefully. Food and service are top notch and the wine list is fantastic. We went for the set menu and were very pleased. The white Beaujolais was excellent and much more reasonable than the white burgundies! Toilets are exceptional! Well worth a visit.
