“Disappointing in just about every way except for the aperitif”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Was really looking forward to a great leaving meal at Anne-Sophie Pic's. having been to both Le cerf in cossonay and rochat in crissier, we were expecting similar standards. Unfortunately, with the exception on the beetroot starter (extraordinary), the scallops were overcooked, the sauce over salted. We were given an additional dish as a replacement...also oversalted. Sole slightly overcooked. Meat dish was forgettable, dessert (quince) was in edible (we all left it). The sommelier was rude and obnoxious.....the saving grace was the aperitif...very cool bar. Martinis mixed in front of you. Staff knowledgable and friendly.
So if you're looking for a gastronomic experience and a night to remember, there are many other options in Lausanne and the surrounding area.

“Outstanding food in top location”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Anne-Sophie Pic opened this restaurant in the Beau Rivage Palace in Lausanne. What can I say? The food, wine and service was outstanding - you pay for it but that's to be expected in an place like that. Well worth it on a special occasion if within budget.

“Excellent but not the top yet”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Really liked the place, nice design. Food was just excellent even though the pre-dessert was in my opinion a bit too sugary for the following lighter dessert (baba). Brilliant cheese selection. Brilliant wine selection (sommelier has excellent know how...but needs to listen first to client). Excellent experience in conclusion but some details could be improved
