I had a wonderful dinner and lunch at Ristorante Brissago. Highly recommend the soups (both were absolutely fabulous).

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

I usually go to the Chophouse but decided to go here to switch it up. It's not that great. Portion sizes are small for the price and there is not much flavor to the food. When you go you will see there are more people at the Chophouse and theres a reason why,

This is an excellent fine dining Italian experience in Grand Geneva Lodge. We enjoyed the food and exceptional service. Portions were small and expensive so have that in mind if coming here. Great pasta, breads and steak.

You must try the Chilean Sea Bass, it is to die for. Just stay away from the Grand Cafe. Had a crazy waitress that threw a plate at us. Totally enactable and bazaar behavior.

We all had the most delicious meals at Brissago. We had such a knowledgeable waiter who explained the menu clearly. Two of us had pumpkin ravioli in sage sauce. Every bite was exquisite. The two men had pizza and both of them being Italian, are tough critics when it comes to pizza. They really enjoyed their meals. We love the... More

We had a very nice dinner here. Wine choice was good. It says it is northern Italian so not too many pasta and marina dishes if that is your thing. Service was good, Tables were pretty close together which is only a problem is neighboring guest is loud and obnoxious which is not restaurant's fault. I do not know if... More
