Having read numerous reviews about Wallse I was really looking forward to this restaurant and was more than happy when I got there, but as the evening went on I was even happier when I left. Although friendly the service was anything but discreet and rather clumsy considering the small size of the dining area. The food unfortunately did not live up to it's billing and I was grateful at being hurried through the menu and finally out the door.

My boyfriend took me here for a belated Valentine's dinner, which the executive chef at Bouley recommended to him. We ordered the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. I have to say that I have NEVER had such amazing food before! It was so good it almost brought me to tears! The service was amazing and the sommelier did a great job of describing each wine for each course. I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who loves food as much as I do.

My family and I went into this fabulous restaurant last weekend and the food was just as delectable as the service staff, however I was only able to take the food home with me, what a shame. There was so much of it and so easy to finish. I have never been so thoroughly satisfied. I reccommend everything. Nothing is bad at this fabulous restaurant and I hear the chef is always available for buisness, including brunch on the weekends, don't worry Wallse I will definately be back.

I had dinner here with another couple and the bill with tip came to well over $400. The food was quite ordinary and the service was boardering on rude. A great place for those who think they are cognoscenti but really are just pretentious.

My husband and I have celebrated our anniversary here every year since Wallse opened. We eat here at other times as well and really love its atmosphere: continental but very New York, elegant but not pretentious...and consistent, wonderul food that is a departure from the ubiquitous Cailifornia/Asian/Italian food found everywhere else. How previous posters arrived at a $200 check is beyond me. While hardly a bargain meal we have found it to be worth every cent we've paid (about $175) for 3 courses, wine and 20%tip. Gutenbrenner is a NYC treasure.

The food was delicious but certainly not worth the price including the wine which was like drinking balsamic vinegar. After two appetizers, two entrees the bill was already near $100 that doesn't include the wine or dessert. I have plenty of money but for what we ordered this food was overvalued. My date and I thought the service on the other hand was rather strange. Our waitress seemed put off by our questions pertaining to the menu. She seemed very annoyed and looked like she was going to loose her temper. That I didn't appreciate. The atmosphere was very nice but again the vibe was intense and not comfortable. I will definitely not be returning.

I visited Wallse last Saturday because my friend kind of pushed me into it. I didn't really know what to expect from "Austrian" Cuisine. The place was busy around 9pm when we arrived. Thank god we had reservations after we heard the Maitre de apologize to a couple which just arrived ahead of us. Very nice atmosphere, also the music was not too loud so we could have a normal conversation without a sore throat next day. Service was fast, precise. Great Cocktails... The rabbit spaetzle were amazing so were the scallops served on amazing creamed spinach. For the entree we had the venison goulash and the Weiner Schnitzel also great dishes. For dessert we shared the Salzburger Nockerl, some kind of Souffle but very tasty. The wine list carries only Austrian Wines, I guess that comes with the gimmick. But great recommendatoins by the sommelier. Definitly come again!
