If you love beer then this is a must. Food menu is limited to mainly burgers and pub style food but it is decent quality. Friendly helpful staff with a good knowledge of craft ales. Beer menu extensive and mostly includes beers from Switzerland and Italy.

I can't say enough good things about this place! The food was great, the service was super friendly, and the atmosphere is something I've been missing since I moved to Switzerland. The play area for children is an extra plus, and we probably stayed an hour longer than planned, just because we were enjoying ourselves. We will definitely come here... More

I had lunch there with some friends. Since I heard all good things about the restaurant my expectations were a little bit high. Unfortunately the food was mostly hamburgers which don't taste good. The pommes frites was overcooked with so much fat. And all the items were overpriced even for Zürich. The place is good though and the garden is... More

Though I can't recommend visiting Fork and Bottle if you are looking for traditional foods (the owner and many of the staff are American), the service, food, and overall vibe is excellent. My husband came across the restaurant through a beer review website and the bottle and draft selection will not disappoint! Both the revamped farmhouse-style restaurant and outside seating... More

... then don't look any further and go to Fork&Bottle! We enjoyed our third brunch there within a few months and loved it every single time. Nick welcomed us to this slightly hidden gem in Zurich (close to Sihlcity/Brunau), and he and his team made sure that we were well taken care of! From the generous pastry basket with cinnamon...

Booked a meal for Sunday evening, unfortunately we were stuck in traffic so had to call and book a later table, the owner was lovely no problems whatsoever. We arrived and chose to sit outside in the lovely sunshine, listening to live music. The waitress was really helpful I could not decide between two dishes (they all sounded really tasty)... More

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
