What a charming spot! Felt so appropriate on a snowy night. Food was excellent, service friendly if a little slow (not the fault of the server, they were just short staffed), all in a cute alpine shack.

Fantastic stick to your ribs food in a cute setting. The pork loin wrapped in bacon was decadent. Schnitzel was solid - on par with what Oma used to make. The dumpling appetizer was good, maybe a little under-seasoned. OTOH the cabbage accompanying it was really great, with lots of caraway seed and sharp/acidic dressing to counteract the rich dumpling. If you're looking for a German/Austrian meal in an unpretentious environment, this will do the trick.

We were so full after fondue appetizer and entrée we decided not to eat dessert but the waiter brought us a piece of cake with a birthday candle in it because he knew from my reservation that it was a birthday celebration. That was Thoughtful.

The restaurant was super cool. Love a good Christmas/Austrian theme. However the staff was not the nicest. The moment we walked in, we felt very rushed by the staff. We understood that there’s a two-hour limit but there was no courtesy.

Such a great spot for a cozy dinner! It’s technically an outdoor spot but it’s covered and has great heaters for the winter. Authentic Austrian food that will make your mouth water! We ordered the bacon wrapped pork loin with mushroom fettuccine, a beef goulash soup appetizer and my husband ordered the veal schnitzel. We finished dinner off with the Red Glühwein warm drink. Delicious! We will definitely return the next time we are in the city.

After we declined alcohol for our table we were never offered anything to drink! Not even Water? Once our food was brought to the table, the wait staff never came back to check on us. I had to physically get up and go over to the waitress to request Water for our table. Very disappointed…

Cute tucked away spot, festively decorated. Food was underwhelming. Staff was nice, friendly, polite however not helpful in providing menu recommendations, for example, indicating popular drink/dish, a staff favorite, or a staple in the cultural cuisine.

The fondue was great fun in a super seasonal atmosphere. It was a little hilarious to be in such an alpine shack when it was almost 70 degrees out, but a great experience overall. Will only be improved by more wintry weather.

The setting is interesting and full of character, except for the awful rock music which is too loud. The food is less than mediocre compared with what I had on my last trip to Vienna.

A pricey disappointment. The “open garden” is now a claustrophobic and dark space with little to no charm. There is no service and the food is fair to good. A potential hidden “Oktoberfest” on the upper east side fails to be welcoming, comfortable, or impressive. Stick with the streetside window for the best of this location.

Not quite as advertised, so in that sense am disappointed. I was expecting more of the “experience” than just food. No live music, service good, most of the good quite good, but nothing to make a destination again.

We where disappointed there was only one Pork Shank available. The patrons before us got the last one. I was annoyed when I seen the Pork Shank was still on my bill.
