Best place for a private dinner! Had an amazing time!
Excellent fondue. Very nice staff. Hard to talk over noise level.
Everything was great, the food, our server, the cocktails and the woman who greeted and sat us. Will be back next time we’re in the city!
Great little spot. We ordered the cheese plate and the chocolate fondue. We were informed you cannot just order the chocolate fondue, which is good to know for anyone going just for that. Overall a good experience.
The food was excellent. Will definitely be back
I used to love this place but the service was atrocious. The waiter was really rude to my group of friends, acting like she was above us and didn’t want to be there. Kinda ruined our whole experience. Not ever going back.
The party of 7 was celebrating my sons 26th birthday. It was fabulous food but getting attention by a server in the beginning was frustrating and a bit disappointing. The ambiance is wonderful and I tried to get another reservation for this weekend but couldn’t.
I recommend this restaurant but the service could be better.
Had so much fun at this ever chic spot. Staff was sweet and accommodating. Felt safe
Excellent Food, lovely service!!
Great service, we were seated right away this past weekend. Friendly staff. Had the lobster & bacon club along with the chicken schnitzel sandwich. Both were delicious! Will come back. Excited when the ski chalet in the back opens up again soon!
Delicious! And lovely outdoor situation
Another home run for Benoit + his team. Consistently wonderful.
Good, but waitress was a little hasty and presumptuous. Felt rushed and patronized
Had the most perfect dinner Thursday. Lawrence took care of us, our service, food + bev were outstanding. Well done + thank you.
They took my deposit please contact me to get it back
Favourite spot - the escargot and zurich veal are my top dishes
One of my favorite places in the city! The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing cocktails, excellent food and service.
Good food however overpriced and we had to wait 20 minutes in the cold for our table (we had a reservation). We placed our order as soon as we were seated but our food took forever to come out and then when we were ordering dessert they told us we had to leave within 10 minutes to honor the next reservation. It was very annoying and outweighed the fact that the food was good.
They were out of two main items that rendered several items on the menu not possible for ordering, therefore substantially shrinking the menu options.
Music was outstanding, and food was even better
Great food. Great service. Love this place
We had a birthday party of 6 people in the cozy outdoor sidewalk chalet during the beginning of the snowstorm. It's isolated just for our table so it felt safe. Felt like being in a little chalet in Switzerland. An out of town experience without the hassle of traveling.
Love their service, their food, their raclette, fondues are fun for groups, the lobster bisque is delicious, everything on the menu is outstanding!!
Seems to have gone downhill. Waiter was standoffish and rude (for no reason- we were pleasant to him and ordered wine, an app, and mains). Food was still good, but not as good as it used to be. Prices seem to have increased somewhat significantly for some items.
Chill environment, really good food and wine!
It was so loud in there we couldn’t hear each other - and more people seemed annoyed about that, too. Staff are super rude. Fondue used to be so much better a few years ago. Won’t go back again.
I was charged $6 extra to add grilled shrimp to my salad and I was given four (4) grilled shrimps. So over a dollar each which seemed kind of ridiculous.
I made a reservation for three people and asked for a Raclette table, which they didn't give us... They had bigger tables but gave us one in which we felt uncomfortable because we were packed against the table next to us. Raclette was only cheese and one potato, no charcuterie as you would get in other places, so not te experience I was hoping for.
Quite rude service since our waitress lacked simple manners and pressured us to tip her when the bill came. Great food though...
Service nul voir inexistant! On se faisait un plaisir d’y retourner en famille . Je pense que le restaurant est devenu un tiroir-caisses!!!!!
Possibly the worst service I’ve experienced in NYC. We were prepared to leave very politely with no problems when the hostess finally gave us a table that could properly seat us. Our server took 25 minutes to come to our table. It took 20 minutes to get a margarita and we were rushed out as soon as our food was finished.
The service was awful.
Don’t recall his name bald waiter was amazing
Outstanding ambiance but the food could be much better.
We booked a place at the restaurant because of a recommandation. We come from Switzerland and we thought it would be nice to discover a Swiss themed restaurant. We come often to New York and we have never gotten such a lousy service. The waiters were rude, impatient, irrespecutful and literally made us feel like we were disturbing them each time we wanted to ask a question, or order something. We just wanted it to be over. Obviously we’ll never go back, nor will we send anyone there.
Service surprised us with Prosecco to celebrate our anniversary. Very sweet
Awesome as always
Met a friend and former colleague for lunch.
Relatively quiet and easy to have a conversation.
Service was fair, attentive enough, but could be better , but not friendly, they seemed to be doing us a favor by waiting on us.
However I ordered the Croque Monsieur and it was ridiculously skimpy for $17. The bread was squat and small, and one very thin slice of ham and one of cheese. The outside was spread with the bechamel sauce ( look d more like mayo) after the sandwich was pressed, so you could not eat it as a sandwich. That’s not my beef, my issue was barely anything to eat! It tasted OK but it was a VERY POOR value. Companion had the wedge salad, looked nice, and a decent size , but again way overpriced for what it was, and the restaurant overall.
We waited for over an hour for our food. We were not provided receipts on payment with card and once we left we found out we had been over charged by $200. The staff were extremely rude when we came back to get the refund for the $200 and were unable to provide any receipts or information on what amount had been charged to which card.
The Café is super nice and if you miss Switzerland, they will make you happy with there amazing choice of traditional swiss meals.
