We came with a larger group for dinner. Weather was great so we did stay on terrace and enjoyed the excellent food which was also well presented. All services personnel was highly professional, very friendly and helpful.

Service was lacking, we had to fill our glasses several times ourselves, ask for the menus, etc. Also food wise the main courses was OK but at least one side dish was rather average and given the prices the restaurant charges, this should all be top notch... we will wait until the new Chef arrives to see if he can...

On a recent trip to Zürich, we stayed at the Dolder Grand, and spent one fabulous night dining at the Sonnenberg. Got to meet Jacky, and of course had his signature veal cutlets. Nice experience.

I was there for my dinner. Salad was good and i had ordered a dish with fish which was delicious. In desert, i had something creamy which also had alcohol in it and it was great. Tables are organized properly. Service is average though, more than normal service time. View is good.

The view over zurich is really nice. The service was okay. The food we had was delicious. But since I'm a vegan/vegetarian there was only one option for me. But my family said that the "südfleisch" was the best they had.
