I lived in Germany for six year and I think I know a thing or two about German food. I've been to some of the other German restaurants in town and I have to say Hildegard's is the best in town. The other venues - I didn't think their food was that good to be authentic. I have been disappointed... More

Had their gulash. Not great, but not bad. Also did reuben take out which I unfortunately never got to, so I'll have to go back for that. Maybe my score would improve with a different try... Service was excellent.

Hello QZOCK, thank you for coming in, and for taking the time to post this review for us. The Reuben is one of our more popular sandwiches, and I hope it held up OK after travelling. Hope you'll have a chance to come back and try some of our other food! You won't be disappointed. Sincerely, Amy Miller More

Love this restaurant. The best soup on the planet is here - their asparagus soup. The pork chops are amazing. Love the schnitzel and the brat selection is wonderful. Sides are good and authentic.

It's certainly popular and tends to go pretty quickly, but I'm glad the German chocolate sufficed this time! Looking forward to your next visit, and thank you again for being our guest.
