I spent many a great evening at this restaurant in the days when I traveled to Lyon at least once or twice a month.
It is different from other restaurants: you will hardly find two identical chairs or tables here, and the atmosphere is always very cosy and amicable. I always read the "terrible" reviews, and the ones I see here seem (as they often are) a bit unreasonable: so someone happened to be there just the night they had a new waiter, and waited for two hours for his main course...? Never happened to me. And maybe he could have asked a bit earlier...
Service here has always been really good; the atmosphere is friendly, open.... if it takes a bit long, you ask... simple. So don't go here if you are in a rush. If you're in a rush, you should go to McDonalds. Go here if you want to spend a pleasant evening with great food, good wines (they have plenty to chose from per glass/caraffe), not to mention the impressive beer-list.
The food has always been great here. You can rely on recommendations from the proprietaire or the chef. They know what they're doing.
Every visit I make to Lyon, I'm happy to make an extra effort to go and dine here!
