We ate here during a conference at the UN. It's a lovely place/setting at the Palais de Nations. It's a hotel school of Swiss standing. The service was a bit slow but we were happy to allow the students to practice on us. The food was good but they could learn to accommodate vegetarians, gluten free etc. a bit more. It feels rather out dated towards real food tendencies perhaps a bit too sophisticated. Overall it was a very pleasant experience!

Going to the Vieux Bois for lunch on a dark and sleety December day was heartwarming - the reception was "chalareux", the food delicous and the young people attending wonderful. This place provides a great refuge for a lengthy business lunch with tables giving you enough space for confidential talk. This time the amuse bouche, starter and main course were so filling that we had to leave the dessert trolley for next time - a shame because it looked fantastic.

I have gone to this school restaurant a few times and the experience is always memorable.
The service is normally on the slow side which one understands because it is a school...the service this time was really great!

This restaurant is always a good choice in terms of good French cuisine-the only slight let down is the service...it tends to be on the slow side and have to constantly alert the attention of waiters/waitrons. The mitigating factor of course is that it is a school and the staff is very junior.

We had a guided tour through international Geneva and this restaurant was our destination after the 2-hour-walk. It was nice to be seated in the shady garden and to sit down at a nicely set table. Our pre-selected 3-course menu was no disappointment, all 10 of us found it very delicious and especially liked its creative and colorful presentation on the plate. Unfortunatel, there was a small misunderstanding because of the wine. I would have expected the waiter to ask me if he should open a second bottle of red wine. We already had two bottles of white wine for apéritif and since it was kind of a business lunch we didn't want (and couldn't) drink too much at this time of the day. So in the end we had to leave an almost full bottle of red wine; and pay for it, of course. Well, it's a hotelier school so I think the personnel is there to learn. All in all, it was a nice experience and I can truly recommend the Restaurant Vieux Bois for fine dining.
