We went on a Saturday evening. The waiter was surprised that we would want a non smoking table, and after he had shown us a table outside and explaine dthat we should not be bothered by people smoking around us, he pretty much ignored us....More

This wonderful Austrian bistro serves many more outside in a large pedestrian courtyard than inside in the warm. We arrived on a rainy super cold night in May not realizing that there would be no available seating. Rather than turning the two of us away,...More

A very crowed place for a reason. Great food and service in a lovely and traditional atmosphere. We didn't get a table for 2 but they asked if we could share which worked perfectly and even ended up in a nice conversation

Had a nice dinner there. Service was excellent even though the place was full. The chicken was superb, and the char was excellent though small. The salad was fresh and tasty. Would come back for sure.

We hadn't booked and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated so I would definitely recommend booking in advance. Fair warning, parties of 4 or less will likely be asked to share a table with another group - we found it entertaining to be...More

Does the restaurant charge for tap water and for the bread basket? I'm assuming they charge for pretzels.
