Very little about this place is German except the beer you can get lots of places. Frozen entrees....no German chef..Zum Schneider or Paulaner brewery are much better choices for good food and atmosphere. Very loud the couple times I've been there...spent of the time on the bathroom line! The door guy seemed more like a thug daring us to come in... seemed overwhelmed by the crowd, as were the bartenders. You can do better for a real German experience...

We went there for brunch. The hostess had a bad atittude and it wasn't even cute. After a few minutes, we were ready to leave but ended up ordering our brunch. The food was not bad, but I wouldn't go back or recommend it. Lots of other places to check out.

It's a great place if you want to drink huge beers and have a meat and potatoes kind of dinner. I'll definitely come back with my buddies, as it's a good place to start off the night.

The reviews on MP suggested a visit to this joint would not disappoint... I ordered the Rheinischer Sauerbraten Mit Kartoffelkloflen and Rotkraut (and yes, i did copy and paste that from their online menu) the meat was succulent, and the accompanying salad and potato dumplings were sensational and left me quite full. I also recommend getting the tray of 11 beers (take a few friends to help with this unless you intend to wake up with a sore head ) Service was very attentive and as always was a pleasure having a waiter who knew how to smile and have a laugh. where possible, select a table in the outdoor beer garden and do not go to this restaurant without an appetite Highly Recommended

The first time I went to Loreley, it was a Friday night and the place was packed with sweaty, meathead, post frat Murray Hill dwelling, Wall Street working types, YUCK! but I wanted some German food and a lovely Weissbeir. The food took forever, and the staff was pushy and rude, not how I expect to be treated when I am opening my wallet, however when the food and bier (currywurst mit pommes frites) arrived I forgot all about the sad crowd and difficult service, yummy. Somehow I wandered in a week later at lunchtime and found a very different Loreley, the place was thinly populated, those who were there seemed more like local LES types, and the same staff members who were difficult at night, were lovely at luncheon. the following week I returned for dinner with friends, I ordered the Sauerbraten, almost as good as grandmas, with perfect red cabbage, my friends were equally satisfied with thier dinners . My estimation is that the staff is rude at night due to unruly crowds, generally, they are polite and helpful. The long and short of it is...If you love real German food, come to Loreley for lunch or dinner. if you come after 10pm...you must be from Murray Hill.

Talk about a German experience. If you're looking to relax and chill out with a few beers, Loreley is the place to be. Warning: if you have a large party I'd suggest reservations as this place gets packed quick! I was a bit hesitant at first as the owner told me that I would be charged a 100 dollars if we cancelled or had a no show, but my friends ended up having an awesome time. Our servers were very attentive with drinks and food. Prices are reasonable for the amount of beer and food they serve. I am most certainly coming back to Loreley again!

The place is loud and reminds more of a beer hall. not relaxing but great for the football crowd.
