For a while, we have not been at 1871. Yesterday we went there for a desert. Now there are less choices than before, only 5-6 types of cakes, instead of more than 10 different types of desserts. However we spent good time there.

The quality of the service, the food, and the beautiful ambiance of this restaurant was superb! My husband had a personal chat with the chef when he picked out his piece and portion of his beef. Was a one of a kind experience that he will not soon forget.

You can feel the best high quality just from the first step into the restaurant. It has a history. There is a very nice outside area. Super menu. Perfect service. Refined interior and equal food.

Excellent location and very convenient for hotel guests. Reasonably priced (everything is very expensive in Switzerland) Service was very good.

While the hotel is 5 stars in my opinion this restaurant was just not up to par. The service was terrible. The appetizer was very good (steak tartare). However the entrees we terrible. Over Seasoned and not cooked appropriately. I was expecting much more. I am happy to pay for good service and good but this place missed the mark.... More
