My wife invited me on my birthday present celebration for a dinner in the recently opened Japanese restaurant Izumi, located on 7th floor inside Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva. First of all, the restaurant is having 2 different rooms where you can have a table, with very few tables available in each of them. One is located just above the SPA reception area (no lake view) and the other one is located inside... bibliotheque ! The service and the food were excellent, many new tastes for your mouth and unexpected food presented, as the type of cooking is called fusion japanese food, very unsual, you will see by yourself.
The only disturbing point was the general high temperature we had to support, as there was no wind, no ventilator to mix the air and to cool down the place, especially when you are eating also some spicy food and drinking champagne, you are feeling hot... So we were somehow suffering from the heat. We went on the 21:15 service which was the 2nd one, the first one being at 19:15 (if so, take sunglasses, because sunset may disturb you if your table is close to the large window...).
I will soon post some photos of the place and of the food, for you to have an idea of what it looks like. Expect high prices !

With a great mix of traditional sushi, sashimi and tempura, their new and innovative fusion dishes are quite outstanding such as the Tuna Tartar with Gochujang Sauce on Crispy Rice and the Baby Spinach Salad Yuzu Truffle Dressing.

Strongly recommended for anyone with the ability and will to pay CHF 150 per person, in my view, money well spent.

The only negative for me is the location, small windows and very noisy in the main areas of the restaurant!

we had a lovely evening here, we chose the nine pm sitting, really lovely, friendly but discreet staff, as we expected in a Four Seasons. The menu is outstanding, really delicious, superb food. starters are around 18 to 25 france, the tuna tartare on crispy rice was particularly good. Main courses are around forty to sixty francs. everything was wonderful , so many delicate flavours, out of this world. There is an extensive wine and sake list too. We will definitely be back to try the business lunch as this is a really special place. I loved the chef s take on mochi, they were the one Japanese food I could never like, but , filled with ice cream....heavenly! The waiting staff did everything they could to make our evening special, we felt very welcome.

A very nice small cozy restaurant in the four season hotel in Geneva . Fusion cuisine. Tasting good dishes to remember tuna tataki salad and black code. The sushi selection is limited. Nice selection of sakis. Worth trying although don't forget we are in Geneva and it's priced accordingly

Went for a lunch with the family, and I must say it was superb. The setting is beautiful, in a library with a real log fire!
The food is extremely well prepared! Service is, as always with Four Seasons, Impeccable! Will be back soon!
