I've been here a few times and always found the atmosphere and the food amazing. It is quite expensive but the portions are large and everything about this place is friendly.

Our first time dining here for dinner one night, and more than happy to come back. It's a traditional Germanic pine walled styled place with similar fare. Staff were great, friendly and the service was good with all the staff being engaging and happy to talk us through any gaps left by the language difference, the menu in English helped... More

Second time I came to this place and it won't be my last. Service was good (specially if you get the professional waiter not the trainee), friendly atmosphere and children friendly. In summer we can sit outside on the terrace or pavement. They have regularly special offers depend on the season. Menu is written in authentic Austrian accent :) Food... More

Second evening staying with friends in Frankfurt and Edelweiss is a stones throw from their apartment. Traditional Austrian fare. Very warm welcome. Starter was a chanterelle soup with mixed fresh herbs. The soup was gorgeous but fantastically complemented by the chopped fresh herbs. The release of flavours when you bit into the herbs worked superbly with the soup. I opted... More

Wanting something different than the schnitzel that I've enjoyed in a couple other traditional restaurants, I decided on Edelweiss. It didn't disappoint. I did see the traditional schnitzel, and it looked great. I had the "Hunters" selection which included a couple "meatballs" (seasoned ground pork), some streaky bacon on a layer of spätzle with mushrooms and a cream sauce. It... More

I've been to Edelweiss many times over the years. It's always been a great experience. The only possible disappointment you may have is not being able to get in or get a table right away. It's that popular. Aside from the typical German dishes they do have Austrian and Swiss dishes on the menu. Everything I've ever had there is... More

Having lived in Bavaria for 13 years and traveled to Austria often I can tell you this restaurant is a touch of the South in the middle of Germany (kind of Mason Dixon Line for Americans). We enjoy lunch on the outside patio in the Summer and inside when weather is cold. My favourite is their cordon blue with spatzella.... More

Brought a table of 7 on New Years day and had a wonderful meal. Had the goose special which was a late portion and delicious. Great beer selection and the service was fantastic in a cozy well decorated authentic restaurant. A bit expensive but worth it.

The service, atmosphere, beer (Austrian (Edel)weiss beer) but most of all food was great. The really warm welcome convinced me to stay and eat. Excellent beer from Austria and schnitzel followed by Kaiserschmarrn. Never eaten the dessert before and took on recommendation of the staff; it was to die for. I'd recommend a visit here any time you are in... More

I loved this place and will definitely return if I come back to Frankfurt again. I had veal and mushrooms with rosti potatoes and a side of sauerkraut - delicious comfort food for a cold December evening. Friendly serving staff, lovely meals, good drinks and a congenial pub atmosphere in old town Frankfurt - worth a visit!
