Someone in a preview comment to this place said he was treated very roughly since he got in with the AssietteGenevoiseApp.... now, whether that was a very unfortunate day for him or else his comment has provoked an immediate effect in the staff behavior. We came with the AssietteGenevoiseApp and we were treated like sultans. The waiters always found the... More

Real shame for this restaurant as was great service and wine, the food was pretty but underseasoned and not matched well. Needs to look at this to be up there with others. We went to le jardin in richemond the second night and was far superior not for too much more.

I came here with a friend using "L'assiette Genevoise", which is a card that allows you to try restaurants, 2 ppl, for 50% off the food. We were treated like 2nd class citizens, the waiter was rude, we were not allowed to eat what we wanted, etc. I will never come here again and I have already spread the word... More

Dear Sir, I am so terribly sorry to read of what a disappointing dinner you had in our restaurant. It is rather a shame we were unable to put right the concerns you had whilst you were with us; but believe me, we never treated differently a guest coming with the Assiette Genevoise's card" than another one. I would very... More

My husband, two adult sons and I had the New Years Eve degustation meal for Our New Year celebration and it was lovely. The service was always excellant.

For a hotel restaurant this one is really first class! I would happily eat there again. We were in a hurry- so the head waiter suggested we stick to the menu of the day. Some of our group (we were eight) opted for risotto which took a bit longer. Every dish was delicious and we were in and out in... More

Not many restaurants that are part of a hotel have food as good as the Côté Square, delicately plated with an impressive presentation only matched by the great culinary taste. It is a very good addition to the Hotel Bristol, and offering a great menu for room service...cover music that is also tastefully chosen is part of the dinners.

The staff works smoothly and impeccable, the food outstanding, the lunch -prix-fixe- is at CHF 17.00 an amazing price in a totally overprized town and country. Even Geneva's French, Euro-based neighbors can easily afford to lunch here and experience the quality unless the mind veiled ladies from the orient. Their smoked salmon was flattened, pounded and filled with a delicious... More

For a memorable meal choose the Cote Square in the Hotel Bristol. Chef Bruno Marchal has designed a fine menu featuring new takes on classic European cuisine. I had an excellent ravioli featuring peas inside, a pea mousse on the outside and a pea garnish. For the main I had an excellent rabbit preparation featuring rabbit saddle and sausage. Uniquely...

It started with the bread basket: four different types of bread and all delicious, a rare event. "If the bread is this delicious, it bodes well for the rest of the meal." The kitchen brigade under chef Bruno Marchal served a superb dinner. The amuse of broth, an appetizer of lobster, and a main course of herb-crusted volaille. The presentation... More

We ate here on a night out with friends and had a fantastic dining experience. The team in the restaurant were very friendly and efficient and the wine list had a decent selection that seemed to be reasonably priced (for a restaurant in Geneva).
