At first glance we liked look and feel of the place (inside, not outside), menu is promising, great choice of beer and they have a toy room! On second thought we missed a friendly welcome, poor to non existent service (was simply not present on the upper floor), food was good but don't order fries if you like them crispy.... More

We were two couples with our babies and got a table on the second floor where they place all the families with kids. They have a corner for kids with toys. They have a great variety of different breakfasts: pan cakes, eggs in various styles, different egg Benedicts... My egg Benedict was very nice and also my friend's options were... More

Fork and Bottle is a nice restaurant and the city limits of Zurich and has some good international options. Specialties are American diners e.g. ribs, burgers but also some curry. Overall the prices for Zurich were normal, the food was good but not really hot when it was serves and it took a really long time. Some healthy kids food... More

When we step inside, we missed the welcoming atmosphere. The service was not very friendly and the place was not packed for a brunch. the Food was not so good, had better brunches. Cleaning the bar before serving the customer, then you don't care about the business. And a good morning smile hasn't killed someone. Shame its a great location...

Went here for the first time after wanting to go for many years. Went for the fish and chips and it was delightful. Will try out the vast beer selection another time. Great the staff were able to sneak us in with a late reservation.

The restaurant served as our meeting place for "Walk the Talk Toastmasters". It has an excellent selection of beers from around the world. The food is great, some pub food items included. Great service too.

The service was way too fast. My CHF 37 Spare Rips were cold on one side (after 10 hours in the stove). Others from the group complained about cold food too!

Visited on a Sunday late afternoon on friend's advice and it was really worth. We shared in 2 a plate of chicken wings in honey and sesam as starter. They tasted awesome. We then had pulled beef burger and a pulled chicken burger. Honestly: never expected a chicken burger to be so tasty! They have as well a very broad... More

This is the perfect place if you're in the mood for comfort food in a super relaxed setting. Very family friendly. Staff was friendly, mostly of Anglo-Saxon origin. Food came quickly and was of decent quality. Obviously no light or healthy fare but enough to make you feel full and satisfied.
