I went to "Zunfthaus Zur Waag" !!!! for a business dinner and all of us had a great time, even though most of the time we were talking about business. The service was great and efficient, food was amazing, the décor is cosy and welcoming. We were greeted by the owner of the restaurant , who was so hospitable and... More

Our institute has a formal (award) dinner at the Zunfthaus zur Waag every year. A historic guilde house is of course a great backdrop for such an event, especially for international guests. When the event happened there in 2013, the Waag was packed full, they had big dinners going on in every room they had. They still managed quite well... More

Anytime we are in Zurich we dine at this historic Guild house. The intimate second floor dining room (no more than 8 tables) creates a beautiful setting for the expertly prepared food and wonderful wine list. The Guild host Sepp Wimmer has described the staff's dedication to quality in the following way, "I am sticking with personal commitment and creativity,... More

Had a pleasant evening eating outside. The duo of melon soups was the highlight. Very expensive menu items so I was very disappointed to be charged for tap water (we did order wine in addition) and the waitress making a point of indicating where we should leave a tip was rather uncalled for.

Great and classic Swiss restaurant. You should order it also for a lunch, because it is usually full of locals. For the evening it is must. We have a lunch there. The meal was great, perfectly prepared and beautifully served. Service was excellent. A have no choice but to agree with “weekenderpaul” and to add that it is probably a... More

I had dinner here on a Tuesday night with an old MBA classmate who was in town for a conference. We sat outdoors on a Tuesday night with a bunch of guys from his conference. It was really lovely in the heart of the old town, and I was surprised that they let us linger there all night without kicking... More

I ate dinner at the Zunfthaus zur Waag one night in June and thought it outstanding! I ordered a 3-course menu that was served with a basket of four delightful little rolls and three flavored butters – delicious! My appetizer was a cream of asparagus soup that managed the perfect balance of lightness and rich flavor. My main course included... More

We actually ate outside as the weather was warm so did not get to see what the inside of the restaurant was like but it is very well rated by swiss local residents. There is a slight asian mix to a traditional swiss menu with an excellent spicy soup with prawns as a starter as well as an advocado tartare.... More

Only having 6 hours in Zurich on layover, I wanted Swiss food and I wanted it done right. This restaurant did not disappoint! The food was only bested by the service which was impeccable. Will definitely come back.
