ホテルに入っており、高級感は十分あり、特別な食事にも景色を見ながら食べるにも良いステーキレストランだと思います。
2名で1キロTボーンステーキを食べましたが、丁度良い量であり、出来れば目の前で切り分けて貰えればもっとよかったかな?とも思っています。
(そうすれば好きな部位を話しながら盛って貰えます)

また、お肉の出もスイスかフランスと明示しており、アメリカ産を使っていないとしているのも良かったです。

It was good but not great. I mean everything - ambience, service and food. Wrote a note to them that its special occasion and still had to remind them when already there. One guy came with cake and half-sung happy birthday. Not really prepared for that kind of stuff. Looked more like a place for business meal for loaded people as paying 60 for a bottle of cheap wine is a bit exaggerated.

This restaurant was great! The atmosphere was very nice and comfy, service was excellent and food was delicious. We order the beef tartare and the cockerel, both were excellent.
I strongly recommend this place for a romantic dinner or special occasion.

Recomendaría que utilizaran aceite de oliva para cocinar el pescado y en especial las gambas; producto fresco en general pero muy soso todo. El precio desorbitado para la calidad de la comida

I visited recently for a business meal and we very much enjoyed ourselves.

On the whole, the food was very good and everyone enjoyed their selection. The foie gras was delicious, but sandwiched unnecessarily between thin slices of melon (I believe...) which did not complement the dish at all. The drinks were excellent and served promptly.

We had a few small issues with service being a bit slow and disjointed (on the food front), but an overcooked steak was quickly rectified by the kitchen. Otherwise the service was pretty good.

On the whole, this was an enjoyable meal with a great view of the lake. I'd happily recommend the restaurant, even though it's a little on the pricey side (like much of Geneva).

When you go to a steakhouse and the favorite dish is french fries that should say a lot. The pork ribs were unremarkable aside from "I wouldn't order them again." The filet of beef was tough and lacked flavor. Service was acceptable but she did strongly recommend both dishes.

Le Gristle. Perhaps the worst steak I have ever had. The steak was solid gristle, and virtually inedible. Staff seemed unconcerned and the manager did not even come over to apologize, or offer a solution. Too bad. Beautiful setting overlooking Lake Geneva, but a real zero for dining and customer interest. Go elsewhere.

Very calm and pleasant environment. Very good steaks served with a variety of accompanying sauces and three sizes of fries !! Not outstanding but a good place for a business lunch for people with a good expense allowance. Calm was appreciated although one can wonder why on a business day at lunchtime only four tables were occupied . Maybe fewer people have large expense accounts.

Nous avons été très bien accueilli et suivi tout au long du diner.
Le repas fut bon même si ce n'est pas révolutionnaire.
Les prix sont élevés en rapport de l'ensemble mais nous sommes à Genève, au Kempinski et avec une superbe vue sur le lac et le jet d'eau situé en face.
Bonne soirée et nous recommandons.

 (Chicago)·Dined on September 5, 2016

Average dining experience overall for a 5 star restaurant. Immediatly whenI sat down I noticed that my chair was unsteady.

We ordered the burger and a steak frites...the food was of average taste except the fries trio which was very good.

3 glasses of red wine.. The server served me wine from 2 different bottles..very strange.

The staff were friendly in general but need more training in hospitality and fine catering. They seem geared more for tourists who may never comeback and so they are over familiar and have a pub approach to service.

 (Calgary)·Dined on July 6, 2016

Exceedently expensive for the food, even more for the wines, no wines on a huge list were reasonably priced, poor and little choice on food menu, only the view was okay, it had scaffoldings outside on the sidewalk which hindered the view. I have never been so disappointed wth a restaurant. I wanted to leave but my son didn't think it was appropriate so we stayed but ate very little. As the main meal was overthetop pricy, we both had bottled water which was around 11 FRC Swiss francs each to accompany our meal. I did not order any wine nor any dessert , which I usually order. We were adjacent to a loud table of 8 people which I know, is not the restaurants' fault. My son and I ate the main meal as soon as it arrived at our table and then quickly asked for to pay the bill without leaving a tip, which I have never done in 40 years of travelling and going to different restaurants around the world. Never again.

We had a business dinner and we weren't able to talk to each other, due to the noise level.
It tooks 40 minutes to give our order to the waiter. This is unbelivable for an Hotel like Kempinski. This was the last time that we book an table at the le grill.

The night we visited the Grill at Grand Hotel Kempinski it was a bit quiet. We had a nice table near a window looking over the lovely lake in Geneva. I enjoyed one of the better steaks I've had in Switzerland (600g Côte de Boeuf). Service was pretty good and overall it was a pretty nice evening.
