Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Disappointed based on the rating and reviews. We had four adults in our party and all ordered different entrees - no one liked theirs! Barely finished any plates. Service was bad as well. Our waiter basically abandoned us all night and we had to wait...to hunt down service. Salt on the wound was the steep bill for a bad meal. Don’t often post poor reviews, but we truly were disappointed.More

Wanted a nice and comfortable dinner experience. Simple menu and what we tried was very good. Asparagus on the specials menu, prosciutto, Wiener Schnitzel, all good. Not a cheap night out, though. Nice wines.

Great location along a tree lined pedestrian walkway next to the main station. They’ve a great range of wines with limited but well formulated menu. As part of a the Excelsior Hotel, we expected good food but higher prices. We had great wines but requested...an off menu salad as wanted diverging light after days of delicious but heavy meaty meals. The salad was great mixed with excellent dressing. One surprise though was a €9 bottle of natural water!More

After all of the beer....we were craving some wine and Vinothek delivered! Their wine list was packed with beautifully aged bottles (we picked a very reasonable for the age 1996 - which the waiter then told us it was the year he was born!). Food...was outstanding. We did the 3 course prix fix - and were impressed with each course. If we were in Munich another night we probably would have come back and eaten at the bar.More

Booked the restaurant at the last minute as we were travelling. Francesca, our server, served us patiently and gave wonderful recommendations. The food was good and since it was 57 euros for any 3 courses, it was very reasonable considering the quality of the food...and service. Thank you very muchMore

Given the fact that we seemed to be the only non-locals here, this is clearly a very well respected restaurant in the heart of Munich. The wine selections by the glass were actually much smaller than I was expecting. However, this turned out not to...be a problem as both selections recommended by our waiter were simply outstanding.More

My wife and I are in town for Octoberfest; it had been canceled the two previous years because of covid. We sampled roast beef and chicken entrées plus a salad. Very good food. There is a wine list but we're in Munich to drink beer...though we are big wine drinkers usually.More

They have a 57 euro 3-course mean, where you can choose any 3 items on the menu. For starters, my husband had the crostini, which tasted like very good bruschetta and I had the prosciutto with melon. I have never had such good prosciutto and...the melon was perfectly ripe. We then both had the chicken entree, which was very flavorful and moist (chicken is so often dry). For dessert, my husband had the trio of creme brûlée and I had the coconut mousse--both delightful. We also had an excellent bottle of wine. Future visits to Munich will include this restaurant.More

Went to this restaurant with 6 friends and we had a great evening. The food selection is not overwhelming but it is really tasty and nice. The wine list is exceptional and the waiters are very nice and helpful to make good selections. They know...what they do. The atmosphere in the restaurant is good and you feel appreciated.More

We had Poltinger duck breast, roasted lamb and 3-variations of cream brûlée for our dinner and of course the wine. The food was excellent. The best food experience we had in our 18-days journey in Europe.

The 4 plates served were excellent and could no be faulted. However the waiting on the table was the opposite and quite poor. First impressions were good and the maitre d’ was most welcoming but the young girl waiting barely interacted and chose to splash...our glasses in an attempt to fill our wine glasses for which we were charged the privilege! We are not staying in Munich long but we won’t be returning there.More
