We had a rough travel day, and arrived in Lucerne 5 hours later than planned, and were cold and hungry! After checking into our hotel, Les Balances, the concierge recommended Stern to us, as one of her favorite places. It was within walking distance of the hotel, and a cozier warmer place couldn't have been asked for! We were seated immediately, and enjoyed a wonderful dinner, with a great bottle of wine recommended by our server. The highlight of the meal was the Parsnip soup but the entire meal was outstanding. Server and manager both spoke English, and were very friendly. We've already recommended Stern to some friends who will be in Lucern on business later this year!

This restaurant (aside from the crowded bar) is lovely...charming, intimate, cozy...and the menu was wonderful, with many tempting regional and seasonal offerings. I thoroughly enjoyed my multicourse meal...everything was fresh, well-prepared and delicious...paired with regional wines. The service was very good, albeit a tad slow (even by European standards), but it was a busy evening. I would return.

We chose this restaurant for our only night in Lucerne, we were happy but without been blown away. The small dishes we ordered were tasty but the portions were of a small size and were pricey even for Switzerland. The service was reasonable but we were left waiting a while for a second round of drinks as they seemed a little under staffed.

Excellent food - ordered the veal steak and partner ordered the Veal slices - both dishes were excellent and lovely tasting, just the right texture. Ambience very gd too. Highly recommend.
Dessert was chocolate lava and ice cream parfait- delicious!

We booked this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdviser. We weren't disappointed. In fact the ambience, food and waiting staff surpassed our expectations. We would certainly eat here again. Thank you Stern.
