We just ate there last week. We were with people that live in Zurich, The food and service was excellent. I had read that the veal with mushrooms was their specialty and it was excellent. Be aware the serving is very large. They serve you half of it while keeping the other half warm. So don't think you are finished when you finish your first plate. We had a great time and the service was excellent. We liked the upstairs because it was more intimate and easier to talk. We stayed for hours because it was a rarity to be with our friends in Zurich and we were treated beautifully the entire evening. My husband ordered the gazpacho and the sea bass which he enjoyed. The 3 of us ordered the veal dish. It is titled veal Kronhalle.We did share the chocolate mouse for dessert...also excellent.I would definitely go back if in Zurich. It was funny...the cab driver pointed it out to us as a famous excellent restaurant and so did the head person at our hotel. so it was ironic that is where our local friends took us.It was a lovely evening.be sure to enjoy the paintings on the walls. they are famous and originals

This restaurant has good art on the walls as its main claim to fame. The food is also very fine. Centrally located.

James Joyce, Pablo Picasso, Yves Saint Laurent, Wladimir Horowitz, Alberto Giacometti, Oskar Kokoschka, Lauren Bacall, Andy Warhol, Golda Meir or Günter Grass were guests at the Kronenhalle, which was founded in 1924 by Hulda and Gottlieb Zumsteg. Regular visitors were Max Frisch, Othmar Schoeck andFriedrich Dürrenmatt. The art collection on the walls is unparalleled - Monet, Picasso, Chagall - originals of course! Not many museums can compete that. The Kronenhalle is probably the most famous restaurant in Zurich although one does not go for gourmet food but for "see and to be seen". The food is traditional Swiss style cooking ("Züri Gschnetzeltes", "Leberli").

Kronenhalle is a must visit when in Zurich. The paintings on the wall are more famos and valuable than in probably the most museums in the world. The cuisine is very Swiss, you get in two parts - so the meal isn´t cold when you come to finish. As Kronenhalle is a Zurich legend, try the culinary legend: Geschnetzeltes. If you don´t like traditional food, visit at least the bar. You can have your drink under classical modern paintings.

One of a kind restaurant where you can enjoy high-quality traditional menu in a museum-like setting - the paintings that are casually hung on the walls are genuine works by Chagall, Picasso, and Miró! The service is formal, professional, and the menu is great. It is on the slightly pricier side, but worth the experience as a local or a tourist.
