We went there for casual dinner, we had a salad and two main dishes (one with beef and the other with deer). Everything was very tasty and the portions were good. We paid around 100 francs which is not terrible for Switherland. The staff was very friendly and the atmoshere relaxed.

Who would have guessed that the restaurant of a hotel serves such amazing food. We were lucky that we got a seat without reservation. I had a delicious lamb rack and a wine to pair with it. The salad was fresh. The bill was about CHF67 which was reasonably priced for a good meal in Lucerne.

I went here for a business lunch recently. The staff are nice and the atmosphere is relaxed. The tables are a bit small and close together. The menu is great with some really interesting traditional and seasonal dishes. I had a tomato soup and a pork escalope in pepper sauce with asparagus and potato croquettes. It was excellent. Good value... More

Made a bee-line from our hotel to the restaurant in the cold rain. Well worth the walk. Friendly service and good food. Menu had great offerings hard to chose. If you like wine go with the local Swiss selection you won't be disappointed! Relax and enjoy!

Ended up at this restaurant by chance. Very nice food, with emphasis on seasonal products and local specialities. Staff were very friendly and helpful when it came to making our choices and selecting wine that would go well with our picks. I asked to have a couple of the dishes amended (like replacing one starch that came with the dish... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Hotel Hoftgarten although I wouldn't list it at the low end of the price range as it is currently on Trip Advisor. It's more mid-high range. We had two courses each and two glasses of wine each at a total cost of 146CHF. The food was delightful. We started with a Goats Cheese Tart... More

The outdoor patio setting is just charming and fun. We chose vegetarian dinners since we previously had traditional meat meals in Zurich two days before in Zurich. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the wait staff were very courteous and friendly.
