Fun American place outside of the city

I was able to make last minute reservations for Friday night and the staff was very accommodating even though we should up with more people than we had reserved for. The waiter seemed to be new but made up for it with his good spirit. It did not take too long to get our food. I had the Pulled... read more

We like going here for a nice breakfast, inside if the weather is cool, or outside if warm. The food is really very good and it is why we keep going back. The kitchen had a change of staff, but that does not seem to have impacted quality.

Went after seeing great reviews on various sites. It completely blew away my expectations. The ambience is surreal: old farmhouse bookended by a highway and a farm with ponies (yes, ponies). The outside space is so cool/casual. The service was incredible-as was the food. Ribs which fell off the bone and were smoked to perfection, spinach and artichoke dip as... More

This restaurant is across from a train station and is kind of in the middle of farm land. It is by far the best pork I've had in my life. The selection of craft beers were exceptional and tasty. Must eat here. Call and reserve to be safe.

This is a fabulous find in Zurich, and if you are looking for a great dining experience without all the Fancy Fluff this city is known for, then come to F&B! The beer selection is large and delightful (a rare find in this town), and the food was delectable. In the summer, the outdoor beer garden is a great place... More

The best smoked pork ribs I've ever had in my life. Seriously delicious. I can't believe that I have to have at least 100 characters.

We recently held our son's 30th birthday party here and we were not disappointed. The host Mike and his team truly did go the extra mile for us to ensure that we were able to celebrate in style. Great food, great selection of wines and beers, superb atmosphere and quality staff. Thanks to all for a truly wonderful afternoon and... More

How I secretly wish Los Angeles has such a cool, relaxed place like Fork & Bottle! The atmosphere, food, and location is the perfect place to kick back with friends, grub, and kick back. It is set in a beautiful open space with an amazing outdoor space with plenty of seats. Oh, there are animals right next door too! (FYI... More

Last Sunday, after discovering the best American style brunch, venue and service in Zurich (having been here for 3 years) and then returning for such a delicious dinner last night, I just had to write a review...only my 2nd review as I rarely take the time to do so. Fork and Bottle is a perfect restaurant for a relaxed, wholesome... More
