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.

My friend Andy recommended this place & it was quite good. Very busy. The food in Switzerland is basically not so good & expensive & I think it's because labour is so expensive, how can the restauranteur possibly make any money after he has paid all the bills. Always better to have the dish of the day- hopefully it's fresh food, freshly cooked.

We have been invited on Sunday the 12th of October 2020 to this for me new restaurant and I must say that a was not at ease at all. The restaurant does not at all respect the minimum rules of distance all the rooms have been packed to the maximum. To get to the table was difficult because of no space. If I had not been a guest I would have left the place immediately! I would at this times not recommend to go and eat there, because even the food passes to many people.

I organised my birthday dinner here. To begin with, as I spoke on the phone and made the reservation, we were promised that we'd get a special table where everyone will dine together. As we arrived there, there were two separate tables, far enough from each other that you could not quite hear what the others were speaking. The food took an ungodly amount to arrive, and when it did, three of my friends had their order messed up, as they asked for modified versions (which were although noted down). My pasta came cold and clumpy, and I tried my best to accommodate everyone, but it was awkward to see my friends decide where they want to sit as they did not want to be divided. Overall, people were not happy with it and none of us have gone back there since it happened. It was my first time too and I was deeply disappointed.

I have come to this Italian restaurant, against my better judgement, a few times in over 12 years and have been consistently disappointed. I shall not bother returning. Prior to the current restrictions, this Montreux staple was so full of tables that one could comfortably eat from a neighbour’s table. I had been convinced that due to social distancing, things might actually be better. In all fairness, the restaurant has made a big effort to screen off tables as much as they can and have produced a laminated menu as opposed to their normal “book”. However, the service and food have not improved. Given that, for some reason that mystified me, this establishment had become a place “to be seen in”, the service always ranged from indifferent to borderline rude. This time it was slow and harassed. My melon starter was far too hard, my main course did not produce the garlic croutons which were integral to the dish and my guest’s pizza order was completely misunderstood, (it was removed from the bill later) but she couldn’t eat what was served. All in all, a stressful and disappointing evening. I, for one, have decided that enough is enough and shall, not be returning as I have been convinced to give this place the benefit of the doubt far too often. A dinner out with friends or family, even in these difficult and different times, can still be a relaxed and fun event but not at La Rouvenaz.

We had a reservation at 1:30 , we arrived 10 mins prior to the reservation. It took 20 mins for the crew to place us into our table. After another 20 mins waiting for them to pick our order, they came just to tell us that the kitchen was already closed and that we could only order pizzas (which if the kitchen was closed I assume it was pre heated(?) Terrible organization and even worse service. Avoid it at all costs.

Went there for lunch. Ordered the chicken salad, tartare de boeuf and pasta. Everything was okay till the moment we found a hair in the salad. When I told the waiter, his only reaction was telling me that the kitchen closed, and that he would see with the manager what he could do. The manager surprisingly came to the table with the same plate, asking where was the hair and of course, the attitude and condescending tone was necessary… After pointing it out, his only reaction was surely the lowest ever, stating that the kitchen was closed and that he couldn’t do anything about it. The complaint above isn’t really the hair in the salad but more the reaction afterwards… such a pity witnessing this lack of professionalism in a restaurant that I usually really good. Last but now least, professionalism stayed at it lowest when bringing the check. They gently crossed out *with a pen* the salad from the bill, recalculating the total and writing it down, with a pen of course. Lol. The picture is just complimentary! PS: a piece of advise, invest in staff satisfaction -it’s crucial for your clientele !

Awful. Had a pizza ...little cheese, swimming in oil and uncooked vegetables. When I complained they just took it away and ignored us for 5 minutes. Eventually someone came and said it was all fine but offered another the same. Vegetarian lasagne my husband had was one step below a ready meal presented with a wilted stick of rosemary in the top and massively over cooked. Avoid!

Madame, Il est inacceptable d'écrire ce genre de commentaires. Nous vous avons demandé si vous souhaitiez un autre plat. La lasagne a été mangé dans son intégralité et votre mari nous a répondu que celle-ci était très bonne. Nous vous avons également offert la pizza. Nous acceptons la critique constructive mais pas le mensonge. A votre service depuis 1965. L'équipe de la Rouvenaz

I had lunch here yesterday, it was the first time I had visited this restaurant. I left with the impression that I was their most valued client. The service was exceptional, friendly and very professional. The waitress speaks perfect English and the waiters are most attentive. Food , wine and prices, correct. Congratulations to all the team for making an enjoyable lunch during these difficult times. (Covid )

We visited the restaurant at about 8pm on Tue., 29 Sept and I am happy to report that thanks to our serveuse, Anick, she made it a great evening for us. My wife and I only had a pizza and a dessert dish between the two of us, with some delightful Swiss red wine, but it was enough to fill our hunger and leave us happy to declare it was a happy evening. I thank Anick, a kind, friendly, and highly service-oriented person, and given the beautiful ambience, we regret we did not take a few pics of our beautiful evening.

Had the gin basil aperitif which was fresh and with clear taste of gin. For starter a glass of Sauvignon blanc and the sea bass tartar, which was alright however a touch of spices and herbs would have put the dish a level up. Main course was the tagliata di Manzo which was medium cooked as requested but had been two long time on the desk before served for me. Plate was served warm however due to too long time on the plate, the meat had turned dry and greyish. With the main dish I had two glass of the Moscarosa. Dinner was wrapped up with a double expresso and a Grappa . Price 124 CHF. Which is reasonable in view of the quantity, but quality was not worth the money. The service started out very good with a waiter paying attention to the customers around my table, but after my fish the waiter was released by a colleague who did not have the same service attitude. The new waiter was not directly arrogant, but contributed to a bad impression of the restaurant. When changing from white wine to red wine the waiter asked if I wanted to change the glass !! When ready to ask for the check the waiter or his colleagues was not in the restaurant where I was sitting for more than 5 minutes. After having the waiters attention the receipt was printed, but then the waiter fell into a long talk with a friend or colleague while I was waiting for another 5 minute’s.

We came today to the bar in the lake side (les voiles de la Rouvenaz) After getting a table we were waiting for 15 min and no one came to take the order. When we realized that people who came after us were served we asked if we could place our order and the waiter said that he will come immediately...another 15 min passed and no one came .. We decided to stand up and go and even in this situation there was no reaction.. I am really surprised as an usual guest it’s the first time that I was treated in a such bad way.. Don’t think will come back soon .

We arrived and yes had to wait an hour for a table but it was well worth it . The service was great and food just as good as the service. Yes the menu wasn't extensive however this is to be understandable with the current situation restaurants are in. A thing restaurants should know is that happy staff makes happy customers and this is definitely the case in this location. We have already booked for dinner in 2 days time.

The driest chicken I've ever had!! No taste. You need to put so much salt to make it edible. Served with the most boring potatoes. You are also given some bread for the table. Dry! No butter or olive oil/balsamic vinegar. The staff walk so hard on the floor... stomp stomp STOMP! The staff are also ignorant. They know you don't speak French and then continue to speak in French even though they can speak some English! The restaurant has great view and good music!

I visited here with my two daughters in July 2020. The food was exceptional... easily the nicest calzone I've had in Switzerland. Even the kindermenu was amazing. Amazing food, really friendly staff. Oh, and if you're staying at a nearby hotel and you remembered to apply for a free 100 CHF Vaud card, you can spend it here (which is what we did). Oh, but book in advance. It gets busy.

La Rouvenaz really is an exceptional place to eat. Brilliantly prepared dishes with some unusual twists as well as better-known Italian staples. Pizzas and pasta made on the premises and served by friendly & efficient staff. We had to wait for a table and didn’t regret hanging on in there; the wait was worth it to eat at quite the best Italian we have been to in years and quite a few countries including Italy. Forget the fondue tourist traps here in Montreux and give this place a try. Remember to leave room for desert though.
