    Really good food, on a nice place! Unfortunately we weren't treated that kindly like other guests. Maybe cause we booked via La fourchette...

    Hello, The experience was good. This place was recommended by my French teacher and it was not disappointing at all. It was a very good evening that we had. We were seated outside in the non-smoking area, so since it was street facing, it was a little noisy at times that caused some confusion while ordering (this was corrected) but apart from this, the ambiance was wonderful. The food was wonderful and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people. Thanks,

    Beverage is far too expensive. Menu ok. Waiter was good but the manager had a serious authority problem with his employee: he criticized him in front of the guest. Not the fine art to communicate.

    One of the steak was really not good. The other excellent. So mitigated review for this one!

    Almost all the plates were very good. More attention to service is required, they made a mistake with our orders and a friend couldn’t eat her risotto because they said it was finished and she ate alone at the end of the dinner another plate. The didn’t offer anything for the inconvinient and they forgot the “the fork discount” in the bill, we had to remind them our the fork reservation for having it. Location impressive, very good atmosphere!

About the restaurant

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.
