Every time we are in Zürich, one highlight is either lunch or dinner at "The Waag" - it has become a family tradition to pay the restaurant a visit and enjoy the original "Zürcher Geschnetzeltes". It goes without saying that this historic place offers the best of Swiss cuisine, exquisite wines and formidable service. Can hardly wait to visit again...!

Found the place based on reviews published here and it didn't disappoint. Lovely restaurant located in a charming square. We got lucky, due to rainy weather and football championship, the restaurant had tables available. Everything on the menu looked good. The food presentation was divine. We had a roast duck liver for an appetizer. For main course my husband and... More

Have eaten dinner at the Waage several times, mostly for business dinners. The building comes with a lot of history and it is always nice to sit in one of the old rooms with the wooden interior and colored lead framed windows. The food is generally quite good, but clearly on the very pricey side. Overall worth a visit.

I recently hosted a private event here and the entire process was seamless. The service is fantastic, the food does not lose quality and the building is beautiful. When I dined in the restaurant prior to the event the atmosphere was lovely - very exclusive but still extremely welcoming.

To start with, the location is great and the building itself is very well kept. Great menu full of great choices. You can hardly make a mistake. Good size portions and great cellar. However, don't take the eglifillet. It's OK, no one outside of the Suisee Romande make a really good Eglifillet. Everything else is great. Also great desert choices.... More

The room is very stylish and combines perfectly old and new. We loved the party our friends held in this place. The food was excellent and wine as well. We recommend Pinot Grigio as white and Barbera d'Asti as red wine.
