“Foie gras in its perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

In this "brasserie chic", quite expensive by the way, you can find dishes on the level of gastronomic restaurants, maybe a little bit more generous in quantity! I tasted there one of the best "foie gras" in my life. Seasonal cuisine, with very fresh products. Personel is efficient and ready to meet you wishes: half portion, more vegetebles, etc. Something - unfortunately - quite exceptional in Switzerland.

“Late summer evening dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

A beautiful terrasse, nice service, delicious meal and wines. Enough room between tables. Only 10 min from the city center by car. Do not go there too late.

“Chévrier takes over another restaurant in Geneva”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

.. which results in another severely overpriced, good (but rather bland, nothing exceptional especially when you look at the prices) restaurant that could have been great. If the prices had been reasonable (by Geneva standards: which are probably the most expensive in the world), I would have given the restaurant 4 stars for presentation of the dishes.

We had the melon soup which was way too sweet - and too much of it. I had giant gambas (which were good) on a bed of basilic risotto which was rather monotonous. My husband had chicken with morilles - good, but not inspired. Desserts were beautifully presented but - just as at the other Chévrier restaurants - too sweet and insipid.

“Just fine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

There's nothing wrong with Le Vallon but there's nothing really special either.
