Found the place based on reviews published here and it didn't disappoint. Lovely restaurant located in a charming square. We got lucky, due to rainy weather and football championship, the restaurant had tables available. Everything on the menu looked good. The food presentation was divine. We had a roast duck liver for an appetizer. For main course my husband and daughter had fish and I had duck breast. Everything was delicious including desert. The check was a bit large but we did have a bottle of wine and as I mentioned before, food was excellent

Have eaten dinner at the Waage several times, mostly for business dinners. The building comes with a lot of history and it is always nice to sit in one of the old rooms with the wooden interior and colored lead framed windows. The food is generally quite good, but clearly on the very pricey side. Overall worth a visit.

I recently hosted a private event here and the entire process was seamless. The service is fantastic, the food does not lose quality and the building is beautiful.
When I dined in the restaurant prior to the event the atmosphere was lovely - very exclusive but still extremely welcoming.

The enviroment is beautiful. If you are eating here eatSwiss traidtional food. That's really the best option. People in my company were happy with that option. I took risotto and fish - non of the could be considered as particularly good.
