My family and I had dinner hear one evening after a long day of sightseeing. I haven't had German food in awhile and was eager to dive in! I ordered the traditional Wiener Schnitzel with red cabbage and a potato pancake (very traditional plate) and though the veal was a bit on the tough side when paired with the red... More

Great for lunch. Arrive around 1145 if you don't have a reservation because it fills up quickly. Welcome vegetarian twists on German-Austrian classics. I had the mushroom snitzel (a giant portobello) with five types of salads: tomato/onion, three bean, carrot raisin, cucumber/dill cream and a vinegar-based slaw. My friend had the vegetable patty plate: a veggie patty, potato pancake and... More

This little restaurant is tucked in a surprising block. When you enter, you are in the deli. Make your way past the selves of convenience food items to get huge helpings of wonderful German food at more than reasonable prices. I had the mushroom schnitzel plate, which included servings of 6 cold salads. It was wonderful

We heard about this place on restaurant.com. We read the reviews and decided to give it a try. We were in Washington DC for three days celebrating our anniversary. We decided to go to this restaurant for one of our anniversary dinners. The atmosphere is quite unique and very cozy. We love the accordion player she was terrific. The service... More

Looks like a shop from the outside but behind is a restaurant, we would have missed this if we hadn't been taken there by friends who eaten there previously. Not sure the accordian music would have been my first choice but it did grow on me. We had an enjoyable night and enjoyed the food and good service.

JMJ As you enter the front store area, keep working your way back to the restaurant behind the double door. Such a wonderful area and first class service and food. Our server was patient with my confused order. She set me straight and we laughed about it later. Our food was delicious and very ample! Will definitely return here again... More

More German than Germany! I have often noticed that expatriates can become to embody more of a culture than their motherland itself—the Japanese in Hawaii, the Canadians in Victoria British Columbia and now this experience comes to mind. The recipes here are more German that anything I had in Germany, and are clearly reflective of a time and place—someone’s grandmothers... More

Great food, large portions, sensible pricing, courteous/efficient service and a delightful pianist sum up this experience! A group of us were in DC for the weekend and found this gem on restaurant.com. Having used the site in prior trips to major cities, we have found that sometimes you do not get what you expect. Well I must be honest and... More

Just around the corner from our hotel - a cosy café style restaurant with huge servings of schnitzel etc. I enjoyed a super fish meal. There is also a deli/store before you enter the actual restaurant and we were able to purchase some lovely fruit as well as some decadent baked tummies for a treat. They also have a good... More
