We went to Weisses Rossli based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews and availability of a table on a Saturday night and we had an absolutely fantastic meal. The restaurant is not directly in the city center itself which was fine with us but hopefully others seek this place out. The staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant and the meal was leisurely with enough time in between courses to enjoy and savor the food and wine while you wait for your next course. Everything we had was delicious but the warm squid salad and veal and mushroom ravioli appetizers were incredible and the mustard crusted lamb steak was perfectly prepared. A smart wine list with some interesting selections on it accompanies the food well. Dessert was a good creme brulee but nothing special about it so that was the weak point of the meal.

Prices are expensive but no more so than many other restaurants in Zurich so you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Weisses Rossli for a fantastic meal in Zurich if you are in town. Hopefully the chef and the restaurant continue to do great things.

This is one of those restaurants you have to go out of your way to avoid because you know you'll want to eat everything on the menu. Simply stated this guy can cook! For the foodies of the world visiting Zürich, put this on your todo list and you won't regret it. The degree of care and culinary talent in crafting each dish is, in the humble opinion of this visitor, unrivaled in this city. All of which can be enjoyed in a friendly low key and relaxed atmosphere.

Downside, well maybe an extra mile on the thread mill if you can't skip dessert.

It looks from the outside from a throw back from the seventies. Well, it probably is. The service staff and the Cook were however just about born. The food is just good. Not good, excellent. Well, better than that. Classic in style, with good products: truffle, egg mushroom, pigeon...
Service is very attentive and professional. Price are normal for Zurich but good value for the food.

Recently went to Weisses Rossli after several recommendations and will have to say that the service was some of the best I have had in Zurich. It was very personable and the server and management really went out of their way to make sure our table had an enjoyable time. The food although was just ok for the price and was expecting something a bit more creative and unique. My meal was good but my partner from Belgium was not impressed based on his sweet bread salad which was uninspiring and served almost like a salad bar on the plate. His pheasant was bland and not cooked properly and remarked that this is no better than poor brassiere food in Belgium. My fish on the otherhand was very good and the presentation was far better. The overall ambience of the restaurant as the terrace was closed was uninspiring and very simple but cozy. Overall for me excellent service but the food brought down the overall rating especially for the price as we were expecting a bit more of a "wow" factor given the reviews.

This is indeed a hidden gem - very nondescript on the outside but a lovely little garden in the back. We were served by the owner who was very nice and had excellent recommendations. Hubby had the tuna steak and I had the veal - both amazing and with a good wine list even better! Excellent value for the quality and portion size.
