great environment

The room is very stylish and combines perfectly old and new. We loved the party our friends held in this place. The food was excellent and wine as well. We recommend Pinot Grigio as white and Barbera d'Asti as red wine.

My family spent New Year's Eve in Zurich and our concierge recommended this restaurant. We wanted something very upscale after coming off a skiing trip and this definitely was special. The building alone, 700 years old, was fantastic. Our dinner was excellent, as was the service. This is a very traditional style, rather staid, dining experience but we all thorouoghly... More

I was in Zurich for several days in early November 2015 and coincidentally attended two corporate dinners on consecutive evenings at the Zunfthaus zur Waag. Both evenings, the service and ambiance were top-notch and the food was delightful: fresh, local, seasonal and appealingly presented. The menu is always changing. Also enjoyed some tasty Austrian wines but some terrific Swiss wines... More

Located in the heart of the city in a beautiful historic building you will have delicious food. The Zurich style veal with roesti I had was the best I tried in the city. I should also mention that the service was perfect. One of the restaurants not to miss in Zurich

Being in a building that dates back to the 1300's is an experience of its own, but eating at this classic restaurant was a real treat. My eggplant appetizer was not only delicious but it was beautifully and artfully displayed. For the entree, I chose the vegetable strudel which would be a hit for non- vegetarians as well. My partners... More

Delightful surroundings and friendly personal service await you at Zunfthaus zur Waag. Excellent views and romantic atmosphere in the evening. Food choice extensive and beautifully cooked and presented. Highly recommend - especially for private dining and business hospitality. Staff were all wonderfully presented and polite. Eternally grateful to all for hosting our Swiss Re business client dinner.

Loved the traditional food like sausage and Roesti and veal zurichoise. The portions are more reasonable and the roesti is to die for. Also love the local wine that the restaurant suggested. We were actually planning to go to the Zeughauskeller and were dressed a bit casually for this elegant restaurant but at no point did we feel embarrased. Great... More
