I went to Swiss Bistro with my family to celebrate my birthday. They assigned a separate area to have our own space without bothering others. The service was outstanding from start to finish! Food absolutely awesome; fresh fish, excellent beef and the past can't be better. The owner explained the menu, wine list and dessert with so much enthusiasm that... More

Growing up in a German/Swiss household this place was a poor reminder of authentic Swiss cuisine. The schnitzel, a staple, was heavily breaded with a thin slice of veal? The stroganoff was presented as a few chunks of beef covered with a milk sauce. Asking for a spaetzel substitute for potato was an exorbitant extra charge. The wait staff was... More

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch with the best personal service. We recommend it with close eyes. Everyone is there to serve you from the guy who parks your car to the lady who takes you to the table.

Excellent food, the escargot is to die for. Fish was prepared perfectly and even the coffee is good. Valet parking available and every table is a good seat. My second visit but not my last !

Beginning with the special attention and honesty of its owners and the freshness of it's food offerings ,Swiss Bistro is the place to visit and enjoy a great and delightful lunch. Don't miss the escargots and potatoes pancakes. All in all you will enjoy this imaginary visit to the Chef's country of origin.

We waited more than 15 min to be attended once being seated. After I got up and asked to be attended we ordered the drinks and they got them all wrong. They were put of specialties and no waiters didn't even know the details of the plates. The food is very good and the only reason I gave them two... More
