We love Roessler’s. Great food and service. You may pay a little more but you get your money’s worth. My favorite is their Wiener schnitzel. The butter fish is another great meal.

The prix fixed bistro menu has a nice selection. Also there is quite a selection in the bistro menu itself. All very tasty. The menu is though only available in the bar area which still has some very nice views of the fountain and pond....More

We really splurged here on food and drinks. The food was delicious and the server was very attentive. It is pricy so we may save it for special occasions but I will definitely come back. The gardens are lovely. This would be a great place...More
