So much fun. Atmosphere was great. Food delicious and staff was courteous and attentive. Cost is a bit high but worth it. German Beer was great! Worth the money. Try it. True German food Sauerbraten was so tender!

A hidden gem in Manhattan’s Upper East Side – literally, due to construction for a new subway line in the area. Potential diners should not be deterred, however, as the quality of food is outstanding, and access from the 86th Street station of subway lines 4,5, and 6 is only two blocks away. We went for lunch, and, despite being slightly time constrained by 911 memorial tickets, we had no worries, as the service was prompt and friendly - and German speaking as well. The interior is reminiscent of a small pub in the Harz region of Germany, with dark wood timber trim and tables. We ordered wurst platters, and were not disappointed. The Knockwust and Bauernwurst were fresh, high quality meats accompanied by Sauerkraut and Kartoffelsalat (potato salad) adhering to Old World recipes. Our daughter, typically wurst-adverse, would have eaten the entire Knockwurst if given the chance. She also enjoyed the Potato Pancakes, which were well cooked with just a hint of onion, and not greasy, as is often the case. Käsespätzle, small German noodles in cheese with bacon, is a creamy confection so good we would return just for that dish alone. The list of imported beer choices isn’t huge, but is certainly well rounded, and offers plenty of variety for those who appreciate the better products available. We would definitely return here in the future.

When we saw "schwartzwalder kirsch torte" listed on the menu instead of the English translation "black forest cake" we got our hopes up. Perhaps this would be the kind of slightly sweet super fresh alcohol laced cake that's so common in Germany. Not Even Close. More like Sara Lee which isn't so terrible except that a $9 slice of supermarket cake was a real let down after an otherwise pleasant meal.

Just enough and very tasty! Served hot, too, by courteous staff. Only suggestion: better bread would be welcome.

We went this weekend and were impressed. It seems with their recent renovation that the whole restaurant has been revitalized. Everything was delicious...herring, spaetzle, roast duckling, sauerbraten, and potato pancakes...awesome. The waitstaff was also fantastic.

Me and my husband tried this place out a few months ago and are now hooked! By far, the best German food in NYC. The fresh pretzels are delish! So are the brots, Weiner schnitzel and potato pancakes! We also love the outdoor patio in the back! Love this place!

Went there for Restaurant Week. For $20.95 the food was too little, too bland and the "dessert" was stale. Don't waste your time unless you are there to take photos and to drink.
