I have been few times in this restaurant and can highly recommend it. Not only a very nice place, with high quality food and good, friendly service, but also a must for any champagne lover. Their special champagne carte include many of the best grower champagnes together with the best champagnes from bigger houses. The cusine is with mediterranean inspiration and is very tasty. There is also a great smoking lounge where you can prolonge the pleasure.

While everything is fine (food & service) they did a very poor job (not) handling a very drunk client next to our table getting a offensive towards everybody around him (he seemed to be some new-"not-so-rich" guy from the US with his Swiss bank relationship manager and some other guy who weren't on top of things neither).

Fortunately this wasn't a romantic dinner or so and rather amusing for myself and my friend but I'm baffled about how it didn't got handled by the restaurant manager:
- he just disappeared wile the guy did make his scene
- after they finally left (and the guy actually excused himself towards us) the restaurant manager appeared and asked if everything is fine. When I told him that the other guy got offensive he was just making the excuse that they couldn't have done anything about it (in such a restaurant I expect otherwise)
- I then kind of expected at least a dessert or coffee on the house (I did not ask for it as it is not about the money but rather about the gesture) but to my surprise nothing, not even our espressos, were taken off the bill

Conclusion: while everything is fine from a food and service point of view they don't seem to be on top of things when things get a bit "non-standard" and definitely have lost me as a returning customer.

The experience dining at Gustav rivals Daniel in NYC and Scotts in London. The entire dining experience was wonderful. The table was ours for the evening. The staff catered to us and made sure that everything was to our liking. They helped us choose a wine that was reasonable in price, yet superb! Our appetizers and main courses were so good!! There were several chef samples that were served between our courses; all of them were excellent as well. Our dining experience was over three hours--the staff truly cared that we enjoyed the evening. I highly recommend Gustav Restaurant.

This restaurant went beyond my expectations. The ambiance was amazing, the restaurant decor is beautiful, the staff was so attentive and the chef was of excellence. Everything we ordered tasted to perfection and the presentation was on a different level. Chef Antonio came out to introduce himself to our table, said a few things about our selections and asked how our meal went. The sommelier Fausto was very knowledgeable of all things related to wine and champagne and helped us pick the right bottle to complement our different courses. The restaurant has a smoke lounge as well for those who would like to take a relaxing smoke and drink after drink. If your having a drink you must have the Gin and Tonic... best I've ever had!

The restaurant itself is very beautiful inside. But menu is not very impressive, business lunch is nothing special for the price it charges (41 chf). We wait for our business lunch 1 hour to be cooked. So, it is a good place to have a long negotiations, not a quick lunch.
