“Great spot on top of Zurich Casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went to George Bar&Grill several times for drink and finally tried out their lunch. The restaurant is on top of the Zurich casino (entry by the left hand side) and has a great view on the other side of the limma.

In a good weather day, I really recommend to sit on the terrace and enjoy a bit of the summer. They have a simple but elegant menu, also a set lunch menu. As a devoted meat lover, I tried out their prime steak- perfectly cooked as medium, tender and juicy, a bit of New York in my mouth actually.

The wine selection could have been a bit more extensive and one has to be patient with the food, as it is quiet a popular place for lunch. But the food itself definitely worth it.

In terms of the bar, it is more 70's style with live music and piano, which I am also a big fan of. Given it is close to the office, I can imagine myself become a regular for the lunch menu already :).

“Stunnings views, friendly service, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

After having found the entrance on the left side of the Zurich Casino main entrance and having taken the elevator to the top floor, we were very positively surprised by the atmosphere: live piano music, lively bar scene, and an elegant decoration reminding us of New York in the 70's. Outstanding friendly service, solid dishes (especially for meat lovers), Zurich-style prices. The views from the roof top are stunning on a nice day/evening, especially as there are not many restaurants with a city view in Zurich. We shall be back.

“Outstanding Steak in perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

I am a meat lover. So my reference for the best meat in the world is Peter Luger in Brooklyn. For the first time, I have had a similar sensation when served a dry aged black angus (Swiss meat) at George's Bar & Grill over lunch. It was simply fantastic and the best steak ever in Switzerland.

Go there. It is the roof-top of the Casino. And yes all the rest is also great (gorgeous view, ambiente, service, desert, home made fries etc), but that all fades away compared with the quality of the steak!
