“I regret the change of the owner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We used to come here often, with colleagues and friends. Apparently, the owner has changed, and the chiefs were changed. The change is dreadfull, all nice things we liked, such as baked potatoes with sour cream were remplaced by tiny potato with just a hint of cream, the meat was not of the quality it used to be, and we had to search for the waiter for 20 minutes each time. Shame really, it was a Geneva pillar restaurant, and we regret the change.

“Restaurant from another era, very expensive food and not really good = do not go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

If you are familiar with English steakhouse (Goodman) or American (Peter Luger), do not go to this restaurant (expensive and old-fashioned)

“Terrible service - go somewhere else.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Food ok , too expensive - but that is normal in Geneva. Service is absolutely terrible. Better steakhouses in Geneva than this.

“Nice steakhouse w/ good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This place is quite nice, the decor is very 50s maybe, has a diner/steakhouse feel. The waiter was great but didn't have a lot of English but we managed. We got a lot of food for our $$, the chateaubriand was delicious and came in 2 servings with delicious jacket potato and vegetables. I walk past this place often and it always has people in it for lunch and dinner and seems especially busy on Thursday evenings.

“There's a diner within the restaurant which is cheaper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

There are actually two restaurants in one:
As you enter, to the left is the fancier restaurant.
To the right is the 'diner' version (no table-cloths, etc).
It's the same kitchen, and the diner is half-price...
I had the 'lieu noir' fish, which is the Friday special.
It was very good. The spinach was re-heated, which was a shame, as was the creme of asparagus soup (disappointing).
But Red Ox (diner) was inexpensive and very handy for the Adriatica Hotel.
Service is old-fashioned and excellent. That's what earns them the 4th star.
A great place to eat alone, because they have a bar with newspapers.
Lots of businessmen regulars having lunch solo.
