“Great Food - booking mess up”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Lovely food, a real experience, friendly waiting staff. My advice take care when booking and you really do need to book this restaurant in advance, we booked 24 hrs before but nearly turned away as they could not find our booking, on a Saturday night in Geneva that is not a good experience fortunately the member of staff who took the booking remembered and acknowledged there had been a mistake then gave us a lovely table with a great view. The service seemed a little rushed and an over booking was obviously a problem but it did not spoil the experience.

“Refined Italian cuisine in an elegant, old-world setting”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

My favorite Valentine's Day dinner ever... It was seamless in every detail: from the delicious and well-presented menu, to the pleasant and well-trained staff.

“italian spring lunch by the lake”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I adore chef's lunches at nice prices. Fine fresh scallop spicy risotto, perfectly roasted veal and braised chicories, delicious sweet cannelloni and a Vesuvio view by the Leman lake...

“excellent service, slightly above average food”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

It's nice to see a place where they pull up a stool for a handbag.. No matter if your bill covers the just running cost or a week's profit, service is prime.
Food is above average though not shocking (had the goat kid and a goats chees selection - no intentional theme).
Very decent selection of wines by the glass and half bottles.
The barista would certainly benefit from an update though: the espresso should taste as such but well.. feel free to judge yourself..
If you have a sweet tooth: definitely go for the sweet trolley!

“Dining in a kings environment”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Arriving in the restaurant our reservation was not booked. Luckily I got their confirmation with me. They immediately tried to find a solution and in between they offered us a glass of champagne. The restaurant is in an abundant royal French decor. A little bit overdone but what do you expect at a Four Seasons. The food was marvellous. Extreme good service. Only the tables are too close to each other. This can be – was in our case – a big problem with noisy neighbours as you find more frequently nowadays.
