“Exquisite flavours beautifully presented”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The deco of this restaurant is well thought through and tasteful. The staff is very professional and smiley without that pretentiousness that some exclusive hotel restaurant insists upon. The red tuna starter was perfectly seasoned and the semi cooked salmon with its quirky carrot puree sauce I had for main course was simply divine. The lemon tart dessert was to die for and served in a original way.

“Worth the trip out of the city centre”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

We took advantage of the 40% off food offer online and booked for my work team, the 12 of us were given a private room in the restaurant which was a very pleasant gesture. The food was very good with exceptionally creative starters and desserts. I had the lobster for main course and this resembled more of a casserole but nevertheless was very tasty. I couldn't finish the 3 course meal.
Good service, shame about he candle marks on the black table. Definitely worth visiting for a special occasion. Additions like wine and coffee are reasonably priced.

“Ridiculous service. When was the last time . . .”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

you sent back a piece of fish that was not fresh, and the wait staff told you that they were certain it was fresh and insisted on charging you $65.00 for it? They took it back and charged me as if it was my fault, insisting that they had got the fish in only today -- of course it was "sea bass" so who knows where it came from and how? I don't think sea bass grows in Lac Leman! To try to placate me, a nice waitress (without advising her supervisor) offered a second bottle of wine, which was poured and left at an adjoining table. When our glasses were empty and no one attended to us, we brought the wine to the table ourselves to pour another glass, but were quickly upbraided by another girl, "that wine is not yours," claiming that we had been offered a glass only. That brought the first waitress back to remedy the situation and apologize. This is Switzerland, for Chrissake, where they are famous as the most meticulous hoteliers in the world. No one should try to emulate these folks!! Oh, and the saddest part -- the food was really quite delicious (except for the fish), completely spoiled by the idiocy of the waitstaff.

BTW, the maitre d'hotel was off tonight. I know because we had eaten in this same restaurant for the two prior nights (as I said, the food really was good!).

Dear Sir,

We would like to thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at the InterContinental Genève with the Trip Advisor community.

We do appreciate receiving your detailed feedback, which is quite useful for us, but are for sure sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your dinner at Woods and that service disappointed you.

Please accept our sincere apologies for all the inconvenience caused. These matters have been of course forwarded to the F&B Director as well as to the Maître d’hôtel and our Chef to prevent such incidents from reoccurring.

However, we are pleased to hear that, except the fish, you enjoyed the menu concocted that evening.

Dear Sir, we unfortunately cannot undo what happened but do hope you will give us another chance to welcome you back to the InterContinental Genève and the Woods in a not too distant future.

In the meantime, we remain,

with best regards,

Jurgen Baumhoff

“EXCELLENT!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We tried Woods last weekend via BuyClub. For both me and my partner, the experience was simply superb. Excellent food and service, in a nice setting. A bit pricey, but that's part of the package for such an experience, and for us it was well worth it. Highly recommended.
