I could happily give the F&B 4* for the food, and for the range of beers. Fantastic burgers (and chips), and great brunch menu too. But the service can be awful, there just never seems to be more staff when busy. And, although the beer menu is very good, even for Zürich, and taking into account they're craft beers and/or... More

Dear Mike: Thank you so much for the warm reception we received, the wonderful ambiance, the great food and service we had at The Fork and Bottle. Your restaurant is for people who love food well prepared, delicious and well presented. Your beer list is (comming from a beer snob) very extensive, concentrating on Italian craft brews which are difficult... More

We travelled Europe for 5 weeks and this place is one of the most welcoming family places you will find on the continent. There is a park next door with horses, and is set up well inside with a playground and upstairs for families. The food is priced well and delicious....all fresh from local produce. The beer selection is outstanding... More

Stopped by with friends & family for drinks & dinner; we were absolutely blown away by the phenomenal service, creative and succulent menu as well as one a staggering and impressive craft beer selection! Everything we ordered for dinner was on point, from the warm spinach dip appetizer, to the perfectly cooked and seasoned sea bass, and some of the... More

The Fork & Bottle is fast becoming something of an institution in Zürich. A little piece of home for the US and UK expats and a welcome retreat for all, but one which manages to retain all of the positives of its Swiss location without the overly reserved and sometimes unfriendly nature of many venues in Switzerland. The food itself... More

Absolutely the best choice of Swiss beer in Zurich. The menu is maybe 40-strong, and all are well-described. Almost all I have tried are a very high standard- but basil beer is gross! Great beer garden and a very decent curry.

This place is a bit in the middle of nowhere but turned out to be a nice experience. It's about a 10-15 minute walk from the tram stop. The food was American brunch and was quite good. I had the crabcake benedict and my friend had the french toast. The fresh juice and smoothies are delicious as well. Service was... More

So we were at the fork and bottle on Sunday the 18th of May and couldn't have been happier! We arrived with no reservation around 12 and it was totally full!! A man greeted us ( Mick I think ) and he asked if we had a reservation and we explained to him that it was a spontaneous visit. He... More

More than a month in advance, I booked brunch at Fork & Bottle after my daughter's First Communion for a Party of 12. Although I had never been there, I had read so many good reviews and was excited to try it out. I even stopped by to talk to the owner, Mike and Special Events coordinator, Amy to review... More

I was looking for a not too pricey burger restaurant in Zurich for my boyfriend and his friend and found "Fork and Bottle" in the internet. It had some good reviews and the prices were ok so we made a reservation and went there by car. The restaurant is located a little out of the way, nearby a freeway so... More
