Lovely dining room with beautiful view from almost any table. Professional and friendly waiter. Reasonable wine list with large selection. We ordered salads and pasta dishes. Considering there are more expensive selections, from steak to lobster, we did not feel uncomfortable ordering a less heavy meal. We also had dessert and coffee. The only downside was my cappuccino; it tasted... More

My wife and I went for dinner and wasn't "all that". She ordered off menu with a simple garlic butter sauce with mushroom pasta dish but the chef would only accommodate it with "extras" that he wanted to add. There were specific mushrooms and herbs that had to also be included. She accepted but wasn't really what she wanted. Some... More

This was the second time that I have visited. On the second visit I had the choice of any other restaurant in the area (and there are some great restaurant around Lake Geneva) but decided to dine here a second time. The menu is extensive and everything was superb. The wine pairing was perfect. Service was exceptional - attentive and... More

This place is perfect. Rex was our server and he really made our whole meal enjoyable. 6 Ladies come every year, it seems like we always get a different server, but the server makes the whole meal come together, and we always have a fun time, kudos to the server!!! We all ordered different drinks and even tried different drinks,... More

This restaurant is right in the main building of the Grand Geneva resort. It is pricey, but the menu is nicely varied, delicious appetizers and entrees, and the food top-notch in preparation, presentation and taste. All Italian wines from what I could see. Service was impeccable for us.

The kitchen at Brissago is absolutely outstanding at any measurement. They can do something with taste that you don't come across everyday. This is a must taste for anyone who like good food. Unfortunately on the day we where there the link between the front and the kitchen was not as it should be. When you order the Chef's menu... More

We hosted a birthday dinner party here for 9. The setting is lovely and the food was outstanding. The service was good but quite slow. It was fairly busy for a Thursday evening but we expected more attention. We ate during Restaurant Week, so had the option of a special 3 course menu for $35 or ordering a la carte.... More

We were somewhat disappointed in this restaurant, but it could be blamed on what we ordered. It was restaurant week and we ordered off the $35 prix fixe menu. I would like to return and order off the regular menu.

The Ristorante Brissago was the destination for dinner for myself and 17 others before our prom. We had fairly high expectations due to the pricey menu and our expectations were not met. Upon our arrival at a little after 6:00, we were seated at two tables because of the size of our group. After about 20 minutes, our orders were... More
