Widder used to be a spectacular restaurant in Zurich, but our visit yesterday was very disappointing. I must say the restaurant no longer justifies the expense, despite the very nice car service. I had reserved a table by phone and asked for a non-smoking area. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were offered a table outside, which was fine,... More

Well, the quality of the food, the selection in the vine card and the great location will really deserve 5 stars. The only reason why I gave "only" 4 is because of the (even for Zurich) high prices. But .... if you have a special occasion and want to have a excellent food with a also excellent vine (BTW vines... More

Was able to change reservation without any hassle. Restaurant manager, very friendly and knowledgeable about the different dishes being presented for the evening. Recommendation of wine was on point. Food was delicious-fish cooked to perfection. We had a wonderful time.

The Restaurant of the Widder Hotel is situated in one of the gracious budings of the Hotel. The food was delightful, the service was outstanding-with a very warm and stylish help from the maitre - who was also helping on the choice of the right wine and the right food. Light and well done !! I was there for dinner... More

Being a regular visitor to Zurich I have dined at most of the top restaurants. I only recently discovered the restaurant at the Widder Hotel. This small intimate restaurant is located above the more famous Widder Bar, in fact I had visited the bar several times and not realised they had a restaurant above. The service is more friendly than... More

This is a real gem and like most gems a little hard to find. It is located above the more famous Widder Bar of the Augustinergasse or you can get to it through a labyrinth from the hotel main entrance. It is as if they are trying to keep the restaurant a secret ! Once you find the restaurant it... More

First time at this restaurant, but certainly not the last. Widder is a small hotel restaurant on the first floor, with a nice and friendly bar on the ground floor. Just a few tables and three or four waiters. Two lists. One menu with a price depending on the number of dishes you choose and a la carte with a... More

Exquisite food... Discreet perfect knowledgable service... If you're looking for somewhere to enjoy a special occasion in Zurich look no further. It's not a cheap night out but that's not why you would come here.... Come here if you want a treat, love amazing food, want to try something different and want to be spoilt... Heaven.

Wonderful food and excellent service. However, note that the restaurant is quite fancy...I think many of the reviews in this section confuse the restaurant and the piano bar which is also very nice. We enjoyed both. But we were in a bit of a hurry and by the time we made it to the restaurant were not able to do... More

We have been to Widder bar several times. They have an extensive cocktail list and a champagne bar during the holidays. Live music as well.
