After the trgic passing of the head chef - one might wonder could they maintain the astronomical standards that led to La Liste rating it the number 1 restaurant in the world. I have been going here since Freddy Giradet days and can confirm that HdeV is a good or better than ever.

Excellent service, Food reinvented, Sales team that puts any other to shame. Their enthusiasm and belief in their product unwavering and bring you around to trying and experimenting with novelties. Anyone who can afford it, must experience this marvel of the culinary world. They deserve 4 Michelin stars.

I have been coming to this restaurant faithfully throughout the reins of Fredy Girardet, Philippe Rochat, Benoit Violier and now Franck Giovannini. Foodies have learned of the tragedy when Violier took his life in February. Of course the question for devotees immediately became: Violier had been selected as the best chef in the world by La Liste, what now? I... More

It was the best experience we've had. We booked a table with 3 other couples and we occupied the central table inside the kitchen. The staff seemed genuinely passionate and having fun interacting with us while being extremely professional. The 3 michelin star chef unfortunately died a few months later, what a pity. The cuisine itself is "simple" in its... More

The food is something very special The wines are very special The service is the best I was taken here by my Nephew who lives nearby. I was totally impressed and having eaten in many good restaurants in major cities around the world from Hong Kong to London to New York this was the best.

With such high prices for one complete meal at this restaurant, you come in with a lot of expectations. Restaurant de l'Hotel de Ville have successfully exceeded all my expectations. Food was truly truly incredible, every part of the dish was thought through and it was amazing. The service reflected the well deserved 3*, it is impossible to describe my... More

La Liste seem to have got it right. This is the best restaurant we have been to. It is so rare to get a meal and pay that much for it but end up leaving and thanking the staff for the opportunity to have done so. It is hard to find the words to express exactly how good this was... More

5 months since the Magician Benoit left this earthly coil but the quality and creativity f the food remain. As does the impeccable Welcome and Service. As always i left the wine choices ( by the glass to accompany each dish ) to the Sommelier and they were Excellent. We wish Brigitte and her Equipe every future Success and Happiness... More

Arriving at 6.57 pm - table booked for 7 pm were surprised that no one was there! When the Maître D appeared he said they were not ready...... We were shown to our table, immediately followed by several other parties. Though the first to arrive we were the 4th table to receive rolls and butter. Throughout we got the impression... More
