Sitting outside on a balmy Luzern evening Stern really hit the mark for food and service. When we saw on the menu that we could get a second serving of our mains if we were still hungry we knew we were in a place that cared for their diners.

Having heard a lot of good things about Stern, we were excited to finally go there for dinner. In spite of us being a few minutes late, our table was not ready and we waited outside for roughly 10 minutes before we could get seated. After some more waiting we asked if we could see some menus and maybe have... More

Everything was delicious. I had the trout fresh from Lake Luzern and was happy with the choice. Staff was sympathetic and helpful with kids as well (both under 12).

Fresh ingredients and made simple. Had the pork loin, slightly under seasoned but overall dish was great! Service was great even among the chaos during the rain and waiters had to rearrange outside customers. Highly recommended.

While visiting Lucerne my wife and I had dinner at Stern twice. On both trips we had outstanding meals with great and informative service. Ingredients are fresh and the meat is grown on there own farm. The chef is creative and we found no reason for additional seasoning . We highly recommend Stern for a great dinning experience.
