Heralded as a home for French gastronomy since 1836, Barsserie Georges offers a unique dining experience where you may feel like you've been transported back in time. The enormous dining room features a high ceiling adorned with an elaborate fresco and classic art-deco interior design that will make you wish you'd worn your Sunday best. The menu includes French and Lyonnais dishes, along with some European specialities. But if you're looking for a quiet dining experience, you won't find it at Brasserie Georges. With a seating capacity of 650, the restaurant can be pretty noisy when full.
