The food is spectacular and so is the wine list. The completely remodeled restaurant is very bright and stylish. The service is not really up to speed and pretty cold as well. Slightly pricey overall

We love the Schnitzel, the wine (Hill), the dessert, the simple & elegant furniture...! We live in Zürich and go there often. Try it! :-)

We never had Austrian Food and were pleasently surprised. Good mushroom soup and a modern and tasty presentation on the plates.

My boyfriend and I went there recently on a friday evening. It should be mentioned that the restaurant is closed on weekends during summer. The interior design is minimal chic and comfortable, but sadly, it is located in a not so nice place directly in front of the tram station. From the beginning until the end, the waitress was very...

The place was recently renovated and an Austrian restaurant settled down. The food is great, but the portions come rather small: my colleagues looked a bit hungry afterwards. The Wiener Schnitzel is really good and also the selection of wines. Overall it is a bit pricy, but familiar with Zurich price levels it is still in good range. I can... More

The newly renovated, in modern style from Austria influenced decorated restaurant, that offers sistrum specialties I found it quite expensive for what it offers! It can be characterized as a below average restaurant judging from decoration, service... But the prices are very high if you consider that you have a Wiener Schnitzel with a side dish and you pay 50.-... More

The Hofwiesen is my favourite Austrian restaurant in Zurich. The food is excellent. You should start with the Brettljause and then go either for the classic Wienerschnitzel with the fantastic horseradish and cranberries and the fabulous Styrian potato salad or choose one of their other typical Austrian dishes. The gem is the walk-in wine cellar featuring the top of the... More

One of the best restaurants I have been in Zürich. The fish was served absolutely perfect, the wine list very interesting, the service friendly and professional. This restaurant ticked all the right boxes. Will definitely return in the future!

My Partner and two of our friends recently had Dinner at the newly opened Hofwiesen, which is beautifully designed. The staff were friendly and helpful with the menu, but that is as far as it goes. There was no management (Maitre de) visible which was strange as it was also Valentines evening. We ordered the Tiroll ham platter to start,... More
