I just cannot find the words to express this experience. Besides the ambiance, everything else was below average. Is this what they call quality food? The service was extremely slow and impolite. The restaurant is a disgrace to the hospitality industry. I strongly recommend people to stay away from this restaurant. Just the mere thought of this restaurant is giving... More

Greeted with friendliness and smiles, excellent service and a devine buffet with a choice of many different fish, meat deserts and cheese dishes, there were also a few warm dishes to choose from too, the quality of the food was tip top, the only down side is the price, a little expensive for the average Swiss but very expensive for...

Really enjoyed the experience to dine in the famed halls. The menu selection for both food and drink are very extensive, the service is impeccable and the food is nicely prepared and presented. Of course this has its price, so do not expect to dine here at a bargain. It will set you back quite a bit, in my view... More

cozy atmosphere and good food, though a bit cold, but the service was terrible.. staff lacking in basic skills. we got ignored most of the time and had to actively ask to get something to drink.. we waited 40! min. before somebody would ask us about a coffee or a digestif after the dinner. not a memorable experience.

I enjoyed a really nice evening and meal here, it's Zurich so I never expect it to be cheap but at 69chfs (approx £48 ) for 3 courses I actually thought it was quite reasonable. The location is very good, I had a table looking directly at the Bahnhofstrasse at the lovely Christmas lights. The food was extremely nice with... More

We enjoyed our meal at Zürich Main Station's Au Premier. The food was between good but not excellent. Not much you can do wrong with Geschnätzeltes. We did not understand that a 3-course menu was cheaper than ordering 2 courses: strange. Next time we will order 3-course menu and only eat 2 of them! Ideally located to meet people from... More

We visited this place with some friends during the Smorgasbord event, where they serve Swedish buffet. I believe this is an una-tantum occasion, or a yearly event of sort. Accordingly, I cannot judge the food they usually serve here, and most of the servings at the buffet were of good quality. The service we experienced was fairly poor: we were... More

When in Zurich on business and need a central place to meet for short conversations, I recommend the lounge at Au Premier. It is in Zurich's main train station, which seems to be the crossroads of all people in the area. Au Primier's lounge is small, comfortable, and reasonably quiet. A good wine list is always helpful, as is friendly... More

My prefered restaurant in zurich, as it is just in the train station. I like the modern design in the arcades of the train station. Even when its full house, the noise level remains supportable. Friendly service, attractive/original seasonal food, a bit pricey but otherwise very good
