The service: absolutely fantastic.
The food: out of this world.

It was perfect in every way. I went every day while I was in Zürich, and by the end of the first day, everyone in their knew me by name already. The waiters, waitresses, and maitre d' were all kind, interesting, and attentive. They are never intrusive, and although you don't see or hear them, they are always there, ready to cater to your every need. The interior itself is spectacular, with many paintings from famous names, artists who lived there free during the war on the condition that they paint something for the lady whose family still owns the restaurant today.
The only thing that might be a turnoff is the price. But I say this: this is hands down the best restaurant in Zürich. The food is expensive, true. But it is incredibly good, all fresh and homemade, and the service is simply amazing. For me personally, I know that there are some things on which it is worth spending good money: delicious, fresh, homemade food; great service and attention; and a beautiful atmosphere.
That's why Kronenhalle is simply the best. There's no other place like it.

Small tip : These guys make the best wiener schnitzel in the world. That is not hyperbole; it's actually true. Must give it a try, with the homemade french fries or rösti on the side. Superb.

We selected the Kronenhalle at the last minute on a Sunday evening and weren't sure what to expect. The setting is lovely. The art, decor, and overall ambience of the restaurant is interesting and comfortable. Not being a big red meat or game eater, I opted for the roast chicken and didn't expect to be wowed by my selection. A roast chicken doesn't have a lot of wow-potential, after all. To my delight, it was simply outstanding. Served with decadent french fries, it was a fantastic treat. My husband opted for the more traditional veal sausage and loved it. Our service was attentive and helpful. The price point was what we had expected for Zurich and the overall quality.

Here you will find the best veal steak with Morel Sauce in Zurich. Appetizers are also quite good with great attention to food preparation and presentation. Last Wednesday night I decided it had been too long since my last visit and I was so pleasantly impressed. Nothing has changed in twenty years! The chef still socializes with the patrons and brings surprises to everyone while they are dining. Your food is kept warm at your table under the watchful eye of your very attentive waiter who anticipates your request for another helping from the hot covered table side food warmer. The chef will also honor requests for anything within reason based on French culinary standards of cooking. The art works all around you are beautiful.

A very good restaurant with a fantastic and impressive art collection. Kronehall means the King's Hall. You can eat like a King here. A good wine selection accompanies the traditional Swiss food. The rosti which are hash browns must be the best in Zurich. It is usually just a side dish, but even by itself it is fantastic. For better rosti you have to go to Bern. A very easy restaurant to get to and it's next to the lake. Expensive, but worth it!

A unique experience to dine in a room surrounded by original paintings of some of the most famous painters of last century (like Chagall and Picasso). The for is Todd but the dining room is a real jewel.
