The ambience was great not only for family but also for couple. The food was also tasty. Since we are Asian, we do not like strong taste like popular Americanized Italian food. But, this restaurant serves very delicate dish. Also, the tiramisu was great in terms of soft and mild texture. The price is reasonable! The server was very friendly and suggested the best dishes for the first comers like us. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

The host was congenial, and the waitress was excellent. The food selection was limited, which was disappointing. We ordered the rigatoni entree. The sauce, pasta, and meat were tasty. The sausage was spicy. For an appetizer we ordered the three raviolis($12), not worth it. Because it was a special occasion our table was decorated with rose petals, and I received a red rose. Also, the tiramisu was on the house. It was incredibly delicious. The ambiance was perfect.

It took almost 25 minutes to get our drinks. Our server blames it on the bartender, however the drinks were ready for at least 10 minutes before she brought them over. She offered us bread, and then after asking for it three more times it finally came out with our food.... an hour and a half after being seated.

Excellent rack of lamb and my wife said the branzino (crispy skin sea bass) was the best she has ever had. Also split a pasta puttanesca with calamari which was excellent. Bottle of Barbaresco, finished with vaniila bean gelato. Great service! You wouldn't think you'd find great Italian in a resort, but Grand Geneva seems to do everything well.

They gave us a server who had a huge table in a separate room. A couple that was seated after us already had food and our order had not even been taken. It was not pleasant being at a table next to the big party. It was very loud.

Food is very good.

For our 33rd anniversary we had dinner at Ristorante Brissago at Grand Geneva. The food was top notch and the service was excellent. Our server, Tatiana, carefully explained the key items in the menu which made our selections very easy. Each plate was brought out in a well timed pace and we enjoyed each one immensely. Even though we are an hour away, I can see coming back in the near future.

The food was pretty decent, after we waited 1 1/2 hours once we were seated top get the main meal. The apps came quickly, but then waited an additional hour or more for the main meal to arrive. No explanation from the server of why a delay. Some customers seated after us and they finished their meals and left before we were served our main meal.

My wife and I enjoy were seeking a quiet romantic upscale dinner location while enjoying a long weekend in the Lake Geneva area. Ristorante' Brissago was recommended to us by my son who resides in the area. We intentionally made early reservations (6:00 pm) to enjoy some quiet time. Upon entering the restaurant were promptly seated at a table for two at a glass wall overlooking the Grand Geneva hotel lobby - which was fine and our server appeared immediately. Because of the early reservation, there was literally no other guests in the restaurant! Before getting to enjoy our drinks a large group of people entered the restaurant and the maître d suddenly appeared and summoned a group of servers immediately adjacent to our table to rearrange and assemble 4 tables together to accommodate this group of people who were celebrating an anniversary and therefore consisted of children and adults of all ages. Mind you, this seating arrangement could have logistically set up anywhere in the large unoccupied restaurant. What possessed him to set this up next to our table is unbelievable. The group was noisy as you would expect, leading my wife and I to hardly hear what each other was saying.
The food was just ok. The homemade pasta was very good as you would expect from an Italian restaurant, but the sauce on the lobster entre left a lot to be desired. Our server was attentive. This establishment and the hotel markets this restaurant as a "fine dining" experience. Trust me, I would describe our entire experience from a management and culinary experience for the money paid as another Olive Garden franchise.

This restaurant was SUPERB! The calamari was out of this world -- the best we've ever had. The salads wee crisp and delicious. The entrees were innovative and wonderful (I had the Divers Scallops and it was a very generous portion). The service was high end. Our waitress, Rebecca, was attentive and provided impeccable service.

The service was impeccable. We were treated very well. The server was attentive but not bothersome. She was knowledgeable of the menu and gracious with her service. The food was very good, but probably a bit pricey for the convenience of not leaving the resort for a nice dinner.

Our 4th Anniversary. Always first class service. Rose petals scattered at our window table
When we arrived. The homemade pasta small plates are awesome. Both entrees (scallops and rack of
Lamb) were perfectly cooked. Experienced waitress, is efficient and genuinely cordial in all ways.

Nothing on the menu is disappointing.

If the pasta had not been a bit dry, it would have been a 5. Noise level was normal and we could actually hear the tabby conversation. On another note, the dress code says ‘business casual.’ If you say it - ENFORCE IT. Two women at the next table we’re so inappropriately dressed I couldn’t believe they were allowed in. Sorry, but we all know what trashy looks like (except those 2). ENFORCE YOUR POLICY!!!!

We just LOVE the Grand in general! We have dined in many Marcus restaurants over the years and are always impressed with their level of service! The only negative for me about this latest experience is the menu has changed and they no longer do the chef experience. Brissago is such an intimate experience, trust your chefs to impress you and the guests!

Those truffle pastas are dangerously good - keep those forever!

Very nice place with an amazing view! Didn’t get a window seat but the windows are so big you can still enjoy it from across the room. In my opinion the food is overpriced; Good but you don’t get what you pay for. The wine was delicious. I would like to see the staff being more friendly and less formal. Don’t get me wrong, our waitress was lovely and quite friendly, however I found that it was almost like the other staff (filling our water, bringing the bread, etc.) weren’t allowed to talk to us. Which is a little weird. Would recommend for the atmosphere, but not the prices.
