Been here several times and food is consistently good. A bit of a walk to get to if coming by public transportation but not too bad. The restaurant is great for every occasion, from lunch to dinner and big group parties. Very family friendly with both outdoor and indoor kids corner. Owner is American and is easy to talk to....

My friends and I traveled from Geneva to Zurich for brunch, and we were not disappointed! Our server, Aiden offered to give us a beer tasting along with brunch and his amazing service and knowledge about the European beer scene was impressive. All six of us ordered a different brunch item and shared - from the burritos to the pancakes,... More

It's a great place to enjoy brunch outdoor with kids. Classic hearty American and English breakfast menu and late lunch all afternoon. Fantastic management and staff. Thumbs up!

I have been to Fork and Bottle many times, in fact I even have a Brunch reservation wtih my friends on Sunday. This little gem is hidden near Sihl City and easily accessible from town. In the summer it is perfect as you can sit in the spacious outdoor area and really relax. I have been for Brunch and dinner... More

I have visited and dined here many times and absolutely love it! It is always consistent and everyone is very kind and welcoming. The service is great, as is the food. The ribs are YUMMY and I end up ordering them every time! Highly recommend Fork & Bottle to anyone! Always have a stellar experience and attentive service.

Nice country casual atmosphere and friendly service, but I wasn't impressed by the lukewarm salmon avocado Benedict. It was served on a soft, seemingly untoasted, bagel with only a dab of hollandaise sauce. I would have much preferred the traditional American version, on hot toasted English muffins, smothered in hollandaise sauce. Capers would have been a tasty addition, being that... More

We had our Corporate Summer Party in the Biergarden of Fork&Bottle (80 Pax) and had an amazing time! Great service, delicious food and very nice atmosphere. They made great recommendations for the menu, the table setting and even the band. Fork&Bottle was very flexible with all our requests and friendly at all times. The event turned out even better than... More

Well... we had to think twice to give a balanced perspective: . location is indeed very nice especially sitting outside . large selection of beers . but maybe is this place too successful ? service and attention can be very different from one client to the other: perception is that maybe you do not need new clients... . food is...

Was there yesterday with friends. Was craving ribs and the meat arrived at lukewarm temperature, and the outer layer was chewy. The fries had no taste and were also on the cold side. My companions too found their orders to be nowhere near the usual quality from earlier visits. The couple on the neighboring table didn't seem happy either. For... More
