“Great food and service! We'll be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

I am so happy to have discovered this place. The food was great, with combinations of flavors that were not just tasty but were also a nice surprise compared to the usual dishes one gets used to eat at comparable restaurants. The service was friendly, competent and attentive. Btw, the entire team in the restaurant is really young, from the chef to the waiters. If this is just the beginning of their careers, I am sure they are up to big things!

“Delightful meal and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

It was our first time to Equitable at Sankt Meinrad. I had just recently read a very good review about the new chef there and we spontaneously wanted to give it a try. The restaurant is very big on using fair trade, local and seasonal products and they offset their emissions with certificates. Many reasons to go!

Our reservation was for 7pm and only a few tables were occupied by then. For some 15-20 tables there are only two staff waiting on everybody and they do a wonderful job, relaxed and friendly at all times. Fabian Fuchs is joined by a Souschef in the kitchen and what they cooked/ baked/ made was delightful and beautifully presented.

We first had several different amuse-bouches (nice touch: all vegetarian), amongst them soy pralines, bear's garlic balls with liquid inside and beet marshmallows. Next came three kinds of home-made bread with cottage cheese and sweet pepper butter (the latter was really superb).

Our three-course meal started with a variation of cucumber, which included cucumber icecream, hazelnut powder and pumpernickel crumbs. The combination really fit! Course number two was a variation of spring vegetables resp. a tartar. Both were accompanied by little drops of different sauces. For our third course we got a cheese plate resp. the sole. Neither of those were a dissappointment either.

By the time we asked for the check around 8.20pm, the restaurant was full. Before we went home, we got a sizeable round of deserts with cups of strawberries and mascarpone, different cookies, muffins and jellies. A really nice treat and worthy of a dessert on its own.

Our check included drinks and wine and yet "only" came to 220 CHF. Considering the quality and amounts of food and beverages, add to that friendly and prompt service, this is a very fair tab for Zurich. We'll be back!

(A few words on the restaurant: The design is quite simple and even though it's only one big room, the noise levels are quite low. In short: It's an unagitated atmosphere to dine in, which is right down our alley.)

“Outstanding place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Excellent place and probably one of the new hot spots in Zürich. All food and drinks are organic. The food is on a very high level (the chef worked in several top spots before he took over the EquiTable) and really creative. Compared to many other places in Zürich the service in EquiTable really deserves the name service. The two women who run the show are very friendly and customer oriented however never overwhelming and pushy. Absolut top standard. Pricing is very, very fair for the level they offer.

“Zurich needs more places like this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Wonderful meal with excellent service. Meal started with five(!) very tasty amuse bouche to enjoy while reviewing the menu. Menu is very brief, generally just highlighting the feature ingredient without giving an indication of how it is prepared which makes the dinner enjoyable and the preparations are creative and very very professionally cooked. This chef knows what he is doing.

I have eaten at most of the top places in Zurich and Equitable is comfortably in their group, cannot recommend highly enough.

Prices are reasonable, particularly the wine, by Zurich standards for food of this quality.
