Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked for the signature menu belated birthday present for my husband, our food never was served to us at the same time, the food or the wine flight which we had, wasn’t explained to us we had no idea what we were eating or drinking...the service was terrible not like mitchelin star in England where everything you eat and drink is explained to you and where it’s sourced. We had very much been looking forward to this meal and trip to Geneva. Geneva was amazing but I definately would not recommend or ever go back to the bayview restaurant.More

We always like to return to the Bayview restaurant by Michel Roth in Geneva. We had the 6 course surprise menu with the wine pairing which was excellent. There is a beautiful cheese cart with a wide selection of cheeses which is included with the...9 course dinner - too bad it is not brought forward for the other menu. Special thanks to the chefs Michel Roth and Danny Khezzar for taking the time to meet the guests after dinnerMore

The ambience and service are on point. The food is skillfully prepared and artfully presented. We loved every morsel. The cheese cart had a wonderful selection of cheeses. We felt a bit rushed towards dessert as I think they wanted to prepare for dinner. They...escorted us up to the pool bar and we were able to enjoy the weather and view with our sweet treats. It was a lovely time.More

Horrible experience at Bayview. We arrived 6 minutes late for our booking at 13.30, were seated and the informed that the Chef had already decided to close the kitchen and would not be serving us. After complaining, they finally agreed to serve us. We wanted...to order the tasting menu and the Chef decided that it was not available, could not be bothered to prepare it for us. Never have I experienced a more appalling treatment in a restaurant of this nature. Beware and do not dare to arrive a second after 13.30 or the Chef will not be bothered to serve you.More

Food was outstanding but service had several inexcusable elements. At the start of dinner when we were given menus to look at, I (a woman) was horrified when I realized that my male dining companion had a menu with prices, while my menu did not...have prices. Is this restaurant really so outdated that women have different menus? I found this incredibly offensive and sexist. This is the 21st century, please get on board. At the end of the meal, when we were paying, I used my credit card and was asked by the waiter whether I wanted to leave a tip for the staff. I am more than happy to leave tips in the US and other countries where that is the custom. However, in my entire time in Switzerland, it's been made clear to me that tip is not expected, and this is the only restaurant that ever even mentioned it. Maybe they were shocked a woman was paying? Maybe they wanted to take advantage of an American tourist? We also noticed other tables got a little bag of chocolates to take home at the end of the meal. We never got ours. I'm sure this was simply a mistake, but for a place with a Michelin star, I expect better. These issues with the service are a real shame because the food is exceptional. We did the 8 course tasting menu. The tomato appetizer was one of the most creative dishes I've had. The farm egg course was also a highlight - incredible flavors and texture. I really enjoyed the potato cappuccino. The cheese cart was a nice touch, as we got to try some new cheeses based on our preferences. The wine pairing introduced us to some interesting Swiss wines throughout our meal. One negative point on the beverages though - we started with a champagne aperitif, which was simply Veuve Clicquot. While high end and tasty, it's less original than I would have hoped for from a place of this caliber. Overall had a fine night but the separate women's menu and the fact they found it appropriate to take advantage of Americans means I would never return or recommend this restaurant to others.More

We had the chef’s signature menu and all the dishes were fabulous. Perfect cooking, seasoning, taste, presentation. And the chef uses local and mostly seasonal products. One of the best 1 Michelin star restaurants we’ve been to.

Went for dinner on a Tuesday night. The staff greeted us warmly and took our coats. The food and service were everything you'd expect from a Michelin starred restaurant in Europe. Our only glitch was when ordering wine. We ordered a bottle and the sommelier...thought we ordered a glass. He brought us glasses and when we all discovered the miscommunication he brought us a new bottle without charging us for the glasses. Overall an excellent experience. Reserve a table by the window.More

Fantastic lunch in Geneva, with Lake views. Great service, and their lunch menu is worth trying for the price. All dishes were excellent, and their amuse bouches and bread were a nice addition. We skipped dessert as we had too much food already! Worth the...visit, their Michelin start is well deserved.More

We have had a business dinner at Bay-View. The overall surrounding could not be more pleasant with relaxed atmosphere and good distance between the tables (this - I am not sure if not for COViD reasons). We took the 8-course signature menu with wines matched...by the house to the dishes. The culinary experience of absolute top class. What was especially specific, was that the service team was spontaneous and authentic in their enthusiasm for serving you and returning for the fact that you decided to reserve the table there. Such attitude is more and more seldom these days.More
