    Great vibe. Food is solid. Spatzel is great, so is the pork schnitzel. Good for groups, we had about 20. Our waitress played a song request, too: Call Me Maybe. Gonna be huge (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Try the Franz cocktail before dinner and get the side of fries with the bacon aioli with it. For entrees I really enjoyed the squid ink pasta with a poached egg

    The Bitches say: B. The main attraction to this East Village eatery is the unexpectedly awesome ambiance. The food is tasty, but has some room for improvement. Read more

    Would recommend the pork wiener schnitzel. The potato salad, lingonberry jam, and cucumber sides were delicious. The blaufränkisch was a good wine pairing.

    The black risotto with scallops is wonderful and aesthetically pleasing. The lamb - great dish to have before a night out. Soft lighting and Cuban music in this german themed cute place.

    Really a fantastic meal. Everything on the black sea bass plate is phenomenal. Similar to ABC Kitchen Monkfish dish but less soupy. Liptauer and red snapper for small plates. Menu does change. Read more

    Enter a heurigen–a traditional wine tavern found in Austria’s wine country. You’ll be offered an assortment of Central European wine/beer/food–for a little fun, get the Grüner Veltliner in a keg. Read more

    Overgrown urban garden/garage/greenhouse,” and it serves some very good Austrian food: pickled veggies; cured pork belly; spatzle; steak; schlutzkrapfen (cheese and beet ravioli).

    Chelsea Renaud · August 30, 2015
  • Amanda A.

    Maybe getting flatbread at an Austrian place is where I went wrong. Place is pretty--except for the broken lamp over my head-- but my dish was oily & the cheese & peaches combo made me a lil queasy

    Amanda Albergo · August 27, 2012
  • Scott B.

    Try the amazingly cooked veal wiener schnitzel with a glass or two of perfectly chilled Austrian wine in this cozy festive restaurant.

    If you are not here for brunch, come back for brunch. And then order the poached eggs w/ the pork belly. And then tweet me (@dens) to tell me how much it blew your mind.

    $14 brunch deal where you get your choice of beverage, pastry, and entree, including things like Kaiserschmarrn (caramelized pancake bits), scrambled eggs, or a pork belly BLT.

    This place was amazing. Our NYC friend chose it for a mini reunion and we had space to spread out and eat comfortably. Delish German food and amazing ambiance.

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Duck Dinner. "Call ahead, and for $100, 4 people can tuck into an entire roasted duck. Sides include pretzel brioche and braised red cabbage."

    Food was very good. Ordered a few dishes to share all of them were great. Spatzle was one of my favorite and I'm not a fan of fish but everyone loved the skate.

    Bring a cute date here for a late dinner in the back garden. Make eyes at them over the liptauer cheese and hamachi shared plates. Wait for the inevitable romance.

    The Walnut Old Fashion is amazing! I was away from the table when it arrived, and the smell of the drink caused my 3 travelling companions to help themselves.

    So good. If you want fast food go get tacos and quit whining. Poached eggs, schnitzel and the ravioli. Top notch cheese plate and staff knows the wine menu well.

    Really great place for a warm winter dinner or date. Best to share a few plates as there's a lot of great stuff: duck, schnitzel, sea bass.

    Absolutely delicious. Great food, cozy atmosphere, fun decor. Get a cheese platter and go with the Ravioli or Duck (if its on the menu for the night).

    This place is like a half burned candle. Gorgeous interior, warm and welcoming staff, amazing wine list. I'd spend an entire Sunday here...oh wait, I did.

    Get the Squid Linguini with Uni Butter, Pickled Chili and Thai Basil. A side of Spätzle is also a good idea.

    Incredible service, unusual selection of small plates, good for special occasions, get a couple cocktails and just keep ordering until you're full.

    Consistently delicious awith great ambience. Unfortunately, today our waiter brought us a second round of drinks without asking, which seemed very shady.

    Try the Cured Pork Belly with Horseradish and Apple. Want to make this recipe yourself? It is featured in"The Better Bacon Book" made just for iPads. http://oapub.co/9a4d0f5d

    it may seem simple but the schnitzel really is the best (veal or pork). snag a spot in the backdoor patio if you can.

    Sadly a very disappointing Schnitzel or maybe I had my expectations too high. Apple strudel very good but the size was ridiculously small.
