Ristoranté Brissago Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is beautiful the soft music was wonderful the food was adapted for health issues without losing taste the host was caring and made sure meal was perfect and every guest he made feel that they were the most important guest there! I loved the veal chop also great bread yum!
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary! When seating, they placed rose petals and a single rose on the table - nice touch! The food was outstanding! Waitress was very knowledgeable as we asked a few questions on the menu! We will be back when we are in Lake Geneva!
This was our third time at Brissago. Went for my wife's birthday. They gave us a good table, put some rose petals on it. Nice. They also brought out a little pastry with a candle for dessert. The pastry was awful, however; it was WAY too sweet, cloyingly so, and that spoiled that part of the experience.
This was a Saturday night of a three day weekend and the place was quite crowded. So, perhaps the rather brusque service can be forgiven. The waitress was very busy but it took her till the end of the meal to give us her first smile.
The food was "okay". We split a "Casalinga" (i.e., house) salad and a crabmeat/cappellini pasta dish. The salad was very good. The cappellini was al dente, and the crabmeat was plump and tasty. But there was a little bit too much garlic in the preparation. And, as I say, the dessert was awful. So the best I can say about the food is that it was "okay".
I'm hoping that the next time we go there (and we will give it one more chance) it will be better. We will be sure to go when the resort is not so crowded. And I suggest you do too.
Food was excellent. Service was very disappointing. Waited over 20 minutes after being seated to be recognized by the server. Dishes were not cleared promptly. Water glasses not filled regularly, did not check back to offer additional wine, had to flag down the busser to ask the server to take our after drink order.
Food was okay but not what I'd expect from a restaurant this pricey. This is my third time dining there, and I've always thought it was over priced. However this time on Valentine's Day was the topper. Portion size very small, nothing special about the flavors, service was very slow. Ambiance was nice, but unless I hear that something has changed for the better I don't see myself going back.
The ambiance is wonderful and relaxing.
The service is incredible.
But the food is just bland. I had veal and greens. The veal just tasted like regular beef, and I've had better greens at soul food joints for $5.
My wife and I would try this place again if they got a new chef. The Grand Geneva is a wonderful place. This was a huge disapointment.
Went there for a anniversary dinner. Had been there before for wife's birthday and so was looking forward to a return. Almost Every Item Was 5 star....the greeting, the drinks, the table set up (the rose petals were a very nice touch), the service, and the staff. The food however was a huge disappointment. My wife's was just ok and my salad was fine but the osso bucco was way over cooked and the rissoto was so under cooked it was crunchy. Tried to salvage the remainder the next day but it didn't work. We'll still go back for a special occasion but I'll probably order something different.
We went there for an anniversary dinner. Service was excellent very knowledgeable about the food and wine. Our server was Ryan. Food was excellent as was the dessert. Wine selection was ample. Very good experience with this restaurant and would recommend for any occasion. Only negative would be children present even late at night.
Steak came out over cooked after 45 minute wait. Sent it back and another 45 minutes later it was adequate. My wife had to eat by herself as did I. Server was apparently offended we sent the food back and never stopped by our table once after bringing the recorded steak out. 35 AFTER we were completely finished eating, finally the manager brought our check after we had to ask for it. The server walked past our table several times and never acknowledged us at all. Her name was Tori. Her attitude and her obvious lack of concern for our dining experience ruined our evening. When the check was brought out, there was no compensation for our experience. I had to tell the manager AGAIN that this was unacceptable. He hesitantly took off my very pricy steak. Never Again!
We went here for our 25th Anniversary the table was beautifully decorated with rose pedals and a rose. The bus boy was awesome fast to serve us water and bread, the manager very welcoming. The server was nice but she was slow due to having too many tables, slow to gret, slow to get drinks, slow to order. When she did come over we has her full attention. We ordered the 4 course meal with wine and added on the 5th pasta course. We asked if that would also have a wine pairing she didn't know but said she would ask. She reccomended a lobster pasta for our 5th course and described it as a pasta with a cream sauce topped with lobster.
Often our courses came out without the wine and or silverware. That was brought later.
First course tuna ... nice
2nd was our favorite a ravioli delicious
3rd was the pasta ... she delivered it it was not topped with lobster as she said. When we asked she replied that the tasting does not come with the lobster.... wish she would have told us that up front. This course was poor, it tasted like tuna helper.
It did not come with the wine pairing and we did not know that until after the dish was served.
4th was duck.. way over cooked and they did not have any more to replace it with. They substituted it with a entree of our choice the Osso Bucco this was overly sweet and the risotto was under cooked.
5th course egg nog creme brulee was also not good.
All in all after many errors the dinner took 3 hours we made the best of it.
Wine pairings were great choices.
Easily the worst dinner I've ever had in a nice restaurant. Both my wife's meal and mine were bland and tasted like we could have made them at home for $4. My wife's meal came out cold but was so flavorless that it wasn't worth asking to have it heated up. Disappointing because the Grand Geneva hotel is lovely and the other eateries in the hotel are spot on. This restaurant just seems to have missed the mark.
Food was just ok. Don't order shrimp scampi. Awful. Could make better athome. Poor quality shrimp. No flavor . Very expensive for quality. We are fine spending if the quality is there. Disappointed,again. Grand Geneva ambiance very nice during holiday season. That was the up side.
