I made a reservation but it was not prepared for us. When we got there, there was not a table reserved and the place was filled. The waitstaff went out of their way to find us a place, and were going to move some people that were at a table that was not reserved. We found seats at the bar, and didn't want them to move the other people. They did what they needed to do to accommodate us for the oversight. Great!

The meat in the goulash was tough. Food is definitely over priced. This is a private club, the prices need to be more reasonable, especially considering the club does not pay for servers, there is zero ambience and the wait time for food is very long.

Initially we had a dining room reservation and our server ignored our table for over 15 minutes. We then moved to a table over at the bar area and were served immediately. The schnitzel was fabulous as well as the red cabbage. However, the sausage was over grilled and dry. German sausage is not meant to be thrown on the grill but rather boiled and if necessary, pan fried for a few minutes. Our service at the bar was outstanding as usual and the selection of beer was great. As far as the ambience goes, Wunderbar! We will be back but hope that some minor adjustments can be made in the kitchen to showcase the delicious sausage that you do offer.

Maybe a table decoration steak was a little expensive some music playing and do something with the empty flower boxes could replace with shutters

Totally excited to see meatless options on the menu! The portabella mushroom with vegetables entree a few weeks ago was delicious! Hope it will be on the menu again some time. Any plans to add side salad to the menu? The desserts ...flan and the angel food cake type dessert soaked in milk...FANTASTIC!!! Keep doing what you are doing!
