“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

I went to this restaurant several years ago on a first date, and had an amazing experience. All the food was superb and the ambiance was really nice, as well (exposed-brick interior and nice enclave seating options). The menu is diverse and everything we had was delicious. Highly recommended.

If you like dining with opera music on the background, in an authentic romantic restaurant, this is the place to be!

“Excellent Restaurant”

Well decorated, nice atmosphere, good food and reasonable pricing at least at Geneva levels.
Have been with a few family members living in Geneva and it is their preferred Restaurant.

“Best In Geneva!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

While staying at a local hotel, I was told to look for a restaurant as they couldn't change a large Swiss note. I am thrilled to have stumbled in to L'Opera. They happily made change and I promised to return another day.

The following day I returned and had a MARVELOUS meal. It was pricey but amazing!! The waitstaff was very kind and friendly. Once they realized I only spoke English, one of the ladies translated the desserts for me.

Food was ready in short order and was just delicious! Perfect portion. My thanks for the chat, assistance and wonderful food. I will return anytime I am in Geneva!!

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

This place has a very good atmoshpere, and it's a little bit warmer than other places I visted in Geneva. The food is mainly french and generally a bit heavy. The choice is rather limited and expensive. Overall, if you want to try something new, go for it but go with average expectation so that you have some room to be surprised.

This place is in line with Geneva dining standards where you find expensive food, not always good, and dated locations in need of some restoration.
