Certainly could not fault the food, especially the sauces. The Bresse chicken was remarkable as they use recipe of Freddy who is long gone. Service good but not outstanding. They are trading on the past and do not deserve three stars. And at $400 per person (yes, you read that correctly $400 per person) everything should be the best. We... More

On Tuesday 27 October, the whole Team of the Restaurant de l'Hôtel de Ville de Crissier prepared and cooked our yearly Corporate Gala VIP Dinner for our 160 guests. I must say that this dinner was the best corporate dinner we ever proposed to our guests!!! The quality of the food, the selection of wines and the service level were... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant nestled in the village of Olon. If you can get by the extremely high prices in Switzerland this is a gem. The menu is all in French. My wife translated for me and I settled on the steak. A good choice. The rest had perch and pork chops. All nicely presented and good food.... More

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.
