What a wonderful restaurant! I went for dinner to celebrate my birthday with my husband and parents and it was out of this world. Beautiful views over the lake, professional friendly service and really delicious food! A really magical experience.

The views up and down the lake are amazing so make sure you get a table next to the window. Contrary to some of the other reviews the service was also good and our waiter was helpful and courteous, no problems at all. However the biggest problem is with the uninspiring food.
To be absolutely fair the dishes are ok, nothing special but nicely presented and modern, however the prices are way too high. If this was a Michelin starred restaurant or similar then I could understand the costs but the food isn't up to that level. The decor and ambience are also lacking and it feels cold and informal, more suited to a business lunch than to a more relaxed evening meal.

Great location right along lake Zurich. Despite hearing the SBB rushing by its a great place to enjoy food. The soups are fantastic, but the beef was under cooked. The vegetable symphony with honey goat cheese was outstanding. Beware of the open wines, we had two that were skunked.

My girlfriend and I had dinner at L'O last weekend and found the location amazing. The terrace is very elegant and the views over Lake Zurich fantastic. Unfortunately though, the ambience is not matched by the food, which is just ok and overpriced, and the service, which is erratic, slow and not always polite (ever seen a waiter of a classy restaurant bluntly and directly asking for a tip???).

We waited for a while before being seated and even longer to be able to order...funnily then, when the wine we ordered arrived, the bottle was left on our table unopened and the waiter went on serving other tables...getting back to us 15 mins later to open our wine...(but he did remenber to immediately ask for a tip when we got the bill...)

Food was ok, the quality of ingredients was good and dishes well cooked and well presented...however price are very high

Overall, a dinner at L'O can be a pleasant experience given the surroundings...but the potential of the ambience is not well exploited by the management team

With the nice warm weather in mind, we booked a table outside and we were quite impressed by the lakeside location and views. The service was professional and attentive but the BIG disappointment was the food. To be fair, we thoroughly enjoyed our sashimi starters, the fish was super fresh and well presented with algae, wasabi creme, soy sauce and even a few pomegranate seeds. However both of our mains, Zanderfilet liguria and Felchenfilets, could not have been more bland, they simply were without any taste. (En français, on dirait complètement insipide et fade). It's difficult to say what when wrong, a lack of seasoning? freshness? or an uninspired cook (certainly not a chef de cusine) but both dishes were not at all up to par. Without a major change in the kitchen, I would not recommend eating here. This is despite the fantastic location.

However, we did notice that L'Ô also has a more relaxed 'Seegarten' section just next to the supposedly more chic main restaurant. The menu features hamburgers, eglifilets and other light summer dishes but also with much more moderate prices. We figure that there's not much the cook can do to destroy a burger or a salad so we'll probably try it next time the weather is good enough to eat outside. We don't have high expectations but am certain with moderate prices and the same fantastic views, we'll enjoy our evening (even if the food is just as crap as in the formal restaurant).
