We ate Sunday brunch while being entertained by live musicians. The brunch was very good. Much of the offering is locally made and their bratwurst is a hit (made by them). The staff is very nice and professional, made for a nice event for our...More

Absolutely love Affare. This was my first time visiting since two years ago, and the food is still absolutely incredible. Our server Randi was an absolute sweetheart (God bless her heart she was hustling hard on Father’s Day!)! If you’re looking for something classy or...More

The white asparagus soup is fabulous. The house made brats were also quite good - we tried a sampling. Quite fine dining smallish in size - friendly wait staff.

You should not expect a Munich beer hall atmosphere - main dining room much more old world continental. Would recommend the trout, mussels the brat/sausage trio. The Jagerschnitzel tasted fine but was somewhat heavy. The wine list is targeted mostly toward German wines and our...More

First of all, let me categorically say that Affäre is an authentically German restaurant. But if you are expecting to get Sauerbraten and Rouladen here, you have come to the wrong place. Affäre is, amazingly, a German restaurant from 2018 that happens to be in...More

We went to Affäre for restaurant week. We had wanted to try it for sometime. The atmosphere is industrial modern. The service was attentive but not overpowering. The food was excellent. We started with the clam chowder. The server also brought the house made pretzels...More
