A warm relaxing atmosphere with good food, the fries were especially yummy.
The overall quiet makes it an ideal spot for conversation with friends.

My friend had to have fork changed as it was dirty; tables could have been further apart as the person behind me kept bumping into my chair.

Excellent customer service. We ordered a beet salad to share. The kitchen kindly served it to us on separate plates. The wiener schnitzel came out hot. The oil tasted fresh, but that was expected as we dined at 5:30 p.m. One of the few restaurants that used veal as schnitzel.

We had a lovely lunch. We each loved our food - salmon cakes with salad and sweet potato fries, pasta with mussels, and omelette with squash and pear puree soup. I had the salmon cakes and would definitely have that meal again. We also appreciated that we were left to chat and catch up despite it being a busy time of year.

Fish of the Day was sole. Very soft and seemed like a Grocery frozen item. My wife really liked the Zuercher (baked chicken with rossti potatoes) as well as the apple strudel. Don't know what fair value is in these times

Was offered a time slot of 4.45 pm or 5.15 pm ,,yet there were empty tables when we showed up at 5.15
Our waiter was anything but pleasant ,,,,should not happen in a restaurant like Barsteiner
We were close to the kitchen and the “ fumes from cooking “ from the kitchen were unpleasant ,,hard to ignore ,,,wondering if your ventilation system is defective as I have sat in the same spot a few months ago
Our food was lovely
( grilled calamari a little chewy ,,,) ( oysters delicious albeit a little pricy )
Thank you

The food was well prepared and properly seasoned. Overall, we were there at lunchtime and it was a bit loud at times. Sadly the waiter was next to non existent. A little more attention to the tables is in order

The service by the waitress was excellent. However, our toast was burnt and so was the pizza crust. As we were exiting the dining area I inquired of a male staff member to please take a photo of us as a memento of our first date in the restaurant but he ignorantly walked away.

Overall just ok. Ordered a burger. Bun was burnt. Fires not hot enough. Partner's fish was just ok. No one looked up to say goodbye on leaving. All just ok. Would have mentioned the above but running late to get elsewhere.

Everything was good, the setting was okay. Nothing was great. I’d come again, but it certainly isn’t the event of the day. Bear in mind, I came at 5:30pm on a Thursday. Maybe it’s nicer at other times. The waitress was nice, but didn’t feel she was very attentive to us.

My mother took me to Barnsteiner's for my birthday dinner. We were seated on the patio next to a young family with loud children, but the kind server immediately tuned into the situation and offered to move us. We hung in and the kids eventually settled down. Dinner was great - I had the tuna appetizer and the beet salad - both delicious. My mom had the braised beef and loved it. During dinner the server - Shaleena - went back and forth with the kitchen a few times regarding my gluten allergy making sure my meal was okay for me - which I really appreciated! And she remembered my gluten allergy when it came time for dessert and brought me a mango sorbet with a candle in it! Thank you Shaleena and Michelle for a great night out:)

I would definitely recommend Barnsteiner to others. The dishes were delicious and appetizing, while being perfectly culminated with flavors infused. The services was amazing, especially from our server Jamie who made the each point of the meal comedic and energetic with conversation. The atmosphere both inside and outside was great. As for pricing is would leave that to individual choice. If your having a date, a celebratory gathering, or just a casual evening meal I would definitely recommend Barnsteiners. Bon Appetit!
