I went there with a friend of mine on Saturday evening and after being treated so rudely by the bar chief I decided to write a review here. Don't go there, until and unless you want to be insulted and mistreated. First he didn't want to serve my friend any tea. We asked he said they only serve Long Island... More

I was there around last year and I have to say it was not what I expected servicewise. However I was around this area with my girlfriend and we gave it a second try. It still looks good and classy. We sat down at the bar and have been served very quickly by in Indian guy (Ranjit I guess was... More

Nicely located next to the opera house, the restaurant decoration and atmosphere is quite sober and comfortable. Menu offers quite a broad choice suitable for all tastes. However food is rather average and rather pricey for what you get. I ordered a beef tartare as starter and it was very average, definitely not well seasoned and rather tasteless. The fish... More

We had dinner at Brasserie Schiller. The location is great as it is next to the opera house and the environment is great too. But I have to say our experience at Schiller was very disappointing. We had pumpkin soup which was delicious. The beef filet was also alright, though not impressive. Per the manager's recommendation, I ordered Halibut. The... More

Obviously, no one at Brasserie Schiller was in the boy scouts because the couldn't cope with the lunch time rush. The weather was nice today, meaning the restaurant had a terrace full off customers looking to enjoy this Indian Summer weather. The only problem was the staff were overwhelmed. It took nearly half an hour to get a mineral water... More

Service staff that is not attentive and "never" around is one thing, but service staff and the head of staff at the outside service location that does not know the drink offer - that really sucks ("What to you want ? Rosamunde ? What is that ?"). Luckily they could locate a bar menu and hence we could show them... More

We were waiting more than 45 min to get the starter. The service is just not there where it should be! I ordered a salad with my starter. Never got it. Then I asked the waiter if I could have the salad with the main dish. The answer was of course sir! But didn't get it again. At the end... More

I spent a nice evening with a couple of working colleagues outside the Brasserie and we decided to have also something to eat. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed at the end as the place was definitely overrated for what we could get. The burger is nothing especial and definitely overpriced (for CHF 31.- it should be at least warm); The... More

I came here for the sunday brunch with my boyfriend and we got quite disappointed with the speed and the quality of the service. Eventhough we were here rather late and the terrace was half empty, we waited almost an hour for our food. Once it finally arrived it was delicious though.
