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.

We were meant to have a late lunch, at least we thought so, but we were told that the last order is at 1.15pm. We arrived at 1.10pm and ordered promptly. Our entrées and mains were served in quick succession and our deserts followed just...as quickly. What a shame.. it was such a disappointing experience both in terms of the food and the speed of the service. There won’t be any need to go back.More

Warm and cozy atmosphere, friendly service, excellent authentic food. Highly recommended family restaurant, where staff seems to be always happy to meet you and dishes are just the way they were meant to be in good old Switzerland.

My favourite restaurant we visited on our trip. Lovely atmosphere And setting, really good service and a great steak. The three chocolate cake was delicious.

Recommended by the concierge, we were not disappointed. A lovely French restaurant walking distance from most of the hotels in Geneva (we were at the Mandarin Oriental). Everything was fresh and freshly prepared. Warm and welcoming staff. Definitely worth checking out :)

I am baffled. I have been working in Geneva for decades and for some reason, I have never eaten here. I have my usual spots. I wanted something different and TA actually suggested this place as it has many times before. I finally said yes....I was shocked at how great it was. The salad was incredible, the wine selection amazing, the Beef Tornadoes with seared Foie Gras on top was out of this world. The steak was cooked perfectly and I am picky. A perfect Medium Rare. Amazing flavor, butter tender beef. Absolutely the best service as well. I told the waiter/maybe owner that I regret never having tried this place before and that I would be coming back frequently.More

The food was above excellent and the service from the staff l would say was second to none. Bistrot Du Boeuf Rouge has been a family owned and operated restaurant for 38 years with the second generation working alongside employees who have stayed with the...restaurant for 20 years which is a testament to how this family run business values their staff. Covid was tough on the restaurant industry in Switzerland when the government shut down pretty much everything. Still even with such a struggle the owner and his family found a way to keep their employees paid which was not easy. I cannot say how highly l recommend this restaurant due not only to its commitment to outstanding food quality and just an overall commitment to both its customers and Staff. We have one more day in Geneva and my last evening meal here will be spent at the Bistrot Du Boeuf Rouge. Thank you Pascal and to Carlos whom without you l would never have found the COOP.More

The service and food were top notch. We were greeted as soon as we walked in. The server helped us through the menu as we don't speak French. We had a wonderful traditional Lyonnaise meal and enjoyed everything.

After reading the reviews we ask our concierge to book a table absolutely perfect. A friendly welcome a nice table at the end of the restaurant an English menu and my questions about the different cuts of steak answered without a problem. My wife had...the medallion fillets & I had the tenderloin cooked to perfection and so tasty. I had a rum barba for dessert wow plenty of rum over it . Again coffee excellent. Yes not a cheap meal but it’s Geneva . The service is so good , food excellent what more could you want Just don’t be put off by the exterior or the street once inside the experience begins.More

Food and service were exemplary- best gratin I’ve had and we’ve been bumming around Europe for three weeks now. They’ve earned their reputation as a great restaurant. Not fancy or expensive, just French classics done really right. Had a bavette au poive and it was...a highlight of the trip!More

It was extremely busy, I was on my own and was lucky enough to get a table in the corner. Food was great as was service. I decided to try something slightly different and went for the tripe sausage, it was nice but not amazing....I saw other people's food and realised I made the wrong choice! Would go again.More

We ate here our last night in Geneva. Wonderful meal from start to finish! Food was excellent and service warm and wonderful. We both had beef, sirloin with bourdeleis sauce and the top sirloin with butter. We start with a bottle of wine, caprese salad...and their house made bread, and finished with coffee and dessert. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. I would definitely go back. Others must agree as the place was full even early on a week night.More

We emailed the hotel we were going to be staying at and asked them to call and book the reservation for us. I think the only way you can make a reservation directly with the restaurant is to call.
