Loved finding this place! Central European cafes such as you find in Munich or Vienna are wonderful. It was wonderful to find this gem hidden away in the back of a German grocery store/deli in the middle of DC. All German language speaking countries are represented in food and drink. It it is a regular place now when visiting DC.... More

Not impressed with the restaurant, but really enjoyed the little store/deli. There was a great selection of German products that are very hard to find in the US. Will definitely visit the store again, but will probably skip the restaurant next time.

My daughter and I were hungry for meat. She ordered the Sausage Sampler and I got pork schnitzel. We ordered different sides (each entre gets two) and shared everything. It was tasty, quick service for a late lunch, convenient location from Metro - in short, I was glad we went and had a coupon to use - as we spent... More

Decent German food with great liters of beer and excellent pianist on weekends. To enter you pass through a German deli and then a simple bar. Low key vibe. Restaurant in back room. Not many places with German cuisine in DC, so I'll be back next year for annual visit.

My friend recommended this place, but she hadn't been there in years and it must have changed owners or management or chef. The potato soup was watery and spicy, the carrot salad dripping with mayonnaise and too sweet. Altogether a disappointing experience.

Every time I go to this place I have a Schnitzel. This time I chose the Rahm sauce, which is mushroom sauce. My schnitzel was very good. It came with double German potato salad, which I love. And I was not disappointed. Among the best I have ever eaten. Service was good, I arrived after 2 pm and ate in... More

Had a family dinner recently at Cafe Mozart. I have eaten there before and always found the food excellent and the service friendly and attentive. Last visit it was almost TOO attentive. It made conversation a little difficult. Only difficultly with this restaurant is walking through the deli with its German delights. It's also walking distance to many landmarks (including... More

We found this cozy restaurant on a cold evening and didn't quite know what to expect. There was a piano player which helped set a relaxing mood. The decor was dated- nothing special. As mentioned, the restaurant is locate behind the deli and bar, so it is tucked away and private. Quality food and atmosphere made for an enjoyable evening.

Most German restaurants will have your standard menu of Bratwurst, Roladen, Schnitzel.. but I've never been to a place where they offer 3 varieties of Schnitzel, and you choose from veal, pork, or chicken. The warm potato salad was perfect. I would have expect red cabbage from a jar - it's not bad - but this was so much better.... More
