This is a very comfortable restaurant in nice area of the city. The staff here are excellent as is the food. We were a table of 5 for lunch and everyone enjoyed their food. I highly recommend this place to visitors. All the locals already know it.

I know of nowhere else in the world where you can sit among the Picassos and Braques and other Masters of the 20th century and have a superb dinner. We have been there twice in the last six months and the food and service have been exemplary.Be sure to call well in advance and ask to sit in the main dining room. They will also make available to you a booklet on the history of the restaurant.
The menu is Swiss and I had an absolutely delicious leg of veal cut from the cart right at our table.

No, no, no. We had two nights in Zurich and wanted Swiss cuisine. We were seduced by the beautiful photos of wood paneled walls, priceless art, a retro air, and classic menu. The ambience, though bustling, is lovely in a traditional European way. The people are hospitable, particularly the maitre'd and our sweet server. But, the food! My goodness, it is terrible and TERRIBLY expensive. I have no issue paying high prices for great food but not for awful food. The herring was fishy to the point of inducing nausea. The shrimp ravioli stuck to the plate. The sea bass was overcooked and sitting on a bed of cabbage-y/potato mush. The only decent dish was the pumpkin soup. Their famous bar has a good mocktail list - we tried one which was decent and then asked the bar to create something different and not too sweet. They brought... the same exact drink. Clearly, this restaurant is going through the motions and not the real deal.

Dear Kronenhalle Guest

We are very sorry to hear that you did not like our food and you even describe it as "terrible"..... perhaps you should try next time the sliced veal "Kronenhalle", as you can see from the other comments "the best in town"!

Best regards

One of the best dining experiences in Zurich. But it’s as crowded as the best. Food quality is outstanding. Beef stroganoff & veal are excellent dishes. We also ordered avocado & crab meat. The wine list is long & superb. Most customers spend time at the bar pre-dinner. That’s also part of the experience as you can admire famous artists work, including Picasso, Miro & others. A must dining experience but make a reservation with plenty of time.
