There were 7 of us ...two couples and 3 well disciplined and behaved children, ranking 6, 10 and 14. It was Saturday lunch and while the place was busy there was no rush. We were at the table close to the kitchen where I would not like to sit usually but this time it was okay as the two youngest ones could enjoy the making of the desserts. The food was well presented and delicious. All and all, we had a very nice time ...it could have been excellent if the waiter had been as polite during the service as it was when waiting for the tip. I can still not comprehend in such a nice restaurant how you can be let down by a not so professional and borderline grumpy waiter.
Tip: wine ...Chassagne Montrachet ...delicious red wine.

We were a pre-booked and pre-ordered group. We got a good private space on the balcony but service was interminably slow. Food was pleasant without being outstanding. Felt as if we were rather forgotten. As with many restaurants in Lyon, the interesting interior is quirky and fun. We got plenty of opportunity to look at it..

Lyonnaise classics done well in a grand very pleasant, library-like atmosphere. Service is extremely accommodating, portions are generous and prices are very fair. Compared to some other Lyon restaurants it felt a bit big and impersonal, but they are also open at times when lots of other restaurants are and is a safe bet.
