We were so fortunate to walk into Schlusselzunft (that is quite a name to type, I tell you) and get seated right away. We really liked the setup of the restaurant--an old porcelain oven anchoring the main dining room, and tables set up far enough...More

The prices in the Schlusselzunft are worth every cent. We spent a romantic anniversary and were delighted with the polite and yet funny staff, the excellent fish and perfect wine. This is the place to go for special occasions!

The spirit of this restaurant calls for floor-length elegant dresses and black-tie dress code. However, shabby clad tourists as we were really appreciated the efforts made by the staff to create a sense of a feast, in order to leave a lasting memory of fine...More

If I could give this restaurant more than 5 stars, I would. The service was attentive and excellent. The food was gorgeous both in presentation and taste. My husband and I both had the curry soup with lemongrass ginger sorbet. It was pure delight with...More
