    College types and nabe trendsetters binge on high quality brews and wursts. Wine on tap and truffle fries offer a change from the typical beer garden. Mixed crowd gives the UN a run in the diversity

    Cash only. Seats 40-55. Outdoor seating. Great wait staff. TRY THE BEERMOSA!!!!! So glad I did. They're awesome and fairly strong. Not unlimited though I think they were $4 each. Def worth it!!!!

    Thrilled the place is (finally!) open. Good selection (see link), fantastically friendly manager (Donald). Adds life to the block. Thx to all-cement surfaces, acoustics are a little rough, though. Read more

    Service isn't bad at all like many have commented. Decent German/Belgian beer selection. Definitely try the Fruli. LOTS OF KIDS, even at 9pm on a Sat. Skip the food. Cash only but they do have an ATM.

    Heads up: you know that sweet free beer you've been waiting for when you've checked in that 10th time? Brace yourself for sadness, it's basically the size of a thimble and only the house choice. :-(

    Currywurst outside of Berlin is hard to find. Their spin on this classic dish is really great and makes it a touch upscale. You can even have the fries replaced with Cous Cous :)

    so excited to see this place in my neighborhood! the food is good (although the staff is slow, and i found at times didn't really know what they were doing). beer selection is terrific. I feel as

    Grab a sunny spot on the street-facing patio, tuck into currywurst and brats at the German-infused restaurant, or grab happy hour cocktails at the swank bar.

    Came here for fathers day brunch. Wasn't really feeling that the kitchen was "closed" when we got there but the staff is there chowing down. Plus the food took a little long to come out. Otherwise, ok

    Terrible service, burger over cooked, bartender never checked back and walked past my empty glass twice! never had good service there. Once had to ask server to clean table cause our arms stuck to it

    Great beer selection. Truffle fries used to be better, still delicious though. Loud at times, but overall a great place. Bring back the cute French waitress!

    Kind of disappointed there was no outside seating, but they did leave the front doors open as it was a nice day out. Decent selection of beer and cod empanadas were tasty.

    truffle fries are delish. also be sure to try the reissdorf kolsch, the hofbrau, fruli, duvel or the fuller's (that last one is simply for my own nostalgia)

    Celebrate Oktoberfest here from on Saturdays and Sundays through 10/2, with live music and traditional food, plus the crowning of an Oktoberfest Queen on 10/2 at 5pm!

    You will be greeted by a wonderful host named Donald and some of the best beers around the world. Try the Tusker beer from Kenya while you're at it!

    Enjoy an awesome selection of beers from all over the world at this Harlem hot spot – it gets crowded. Try their Bratwurst, Bier Steak Burger or Continental Board.

    My favorite happy hour spot in Harlem. The staff is friendly and the Fruli is a must if you're not really into "beer" like me

    They've just added Maibock to their list of amazing beers. If you haven't had this before you need to. Take it from an ex-pat!! :)

    Great beers, love the small glasses for trying new ones. Steer clear of the salmon quesadilla, and beware it's a cash-only spot.

    Truffle fries are a must! Their new summertime sangria ($8/glass) is delicious and packed with watermelon and peach.

    5:30 on Saturday... A lot of hipster parents and their infant kids. Seriously, at least one per table. Just kinda odd for a beer garden

    Try their delicious guacamole during happy hour, when it's discounted, and enjoy a beer on the sidewalk patio.

    Best truffle fries I've ever had! Good selection of beers, but prices are a bit steep. And where are the American craft beers?

    The table against the wall with your back to the word "Kongo" gives you access to an outlet to charge your phone and not look like "that" guy.

    Sit outside and take in the scene. Best when it's quiet and calm. Can get overwhelming when busy.

    Cash only. If you want to get something light and fruity for a change get the strawberry fruli beer.

    Amazing fries, best beer selection in the area and a great way to kickoff the evening if you feel like a little walk past Central Park.

    Usually, there's no such thing as too much head... Unless you're expecting to enjoy your fill of good German beer.

    Try the Berliner Currywurst. It's delish!!! Nice spice to the curry sauce and the fries are perfect :-)

    Donald is the best. He and Dedeou are awesome. And they are my buddies. Love those guys and Chris, Ousmane, Adriano, the gals over there. My homies! :D

    The menu has no integrity so stick with beer and, if you must eat, the sausage & meat offerings

    Nice biergarten, with a acceptable variety of beers. But cash only? In NY? Really?
