    Food was not what I expected. Steak was over cooked, lobster ravioli came out of a can, and the beef stroganoff was not freshly made . The bread was fresh and tasted very nice. I would recommend the porc chops. They were very tender.

    We went there after looking at the menu on Opentable: menu must have changed! If it is great to be served 2 minutes after having order it is only because you are getting frozen food microwaved! Everything we had was tasteless and we'll never go there again!!

    This was a first visit. Overall all 3 diners were happy with their choices but we were heavy on meats given the German vibe (schnitzels). Large portions. Service was friendly; water service excellent. Wine list moderately varied and reasonably priced. No espresso drinks. Desserts were very good; apple strudel the big winner. Pleasant but modest interior with some noise from the bar section that was a little bothersome. Would probably return to try another type of entree but would be sure to have a very empty stomach.

    I booked Austria Hof for New Years Eve and we were very pleased with our experience. The decor was lovely in an Alpine way. For the occasion, balloons filled the ceiling making it very festive. The menu was chock-full of Austrian/German specialities, which made making a decision difficult. I went for the classic Weinerschnitzel. I've had it a little better elsewhere, but it was still excellent. Husband's steak was perfect. Tuna poke starter was delicious. We will definitely be back next time we're in Mammoth.

    There were 3 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. One person has traveled all over the world for decades and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of his meal. He loved the Escargot, Elk and Weinerschnetzel. The duck was also very well prepared and delicious. Our server Cisco was very attentive and accommodating and Todd, who checked in on us periodically was also interested to know if we were enjoying our evening. We have had dinners at Austria Hof in the past and the food and service has never disappointed us!

    German/Austrian restaurants are hard to find in California. We gave Austria Hof a try. Neither gourmet or carefully prepared The weinerschnitzel was dry and crust was flat. The saurbraten was tender with a good flavor. Skip the potato pancakes. Ok if you go in with low expectations.

We had a great meal and a lovely end to a lovely day. We HIGHLY recommend. Prices were fair and wine prices were very good with a beautifully varied selection.

    We went with a large group of several families. The restaurant was very accommodating- we worked out the spilt bill easily and they were great about kids table near adult table. The waitstaff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone agreed the food was very good. We were all staying in the Canyon Lodge area and enjoyed the 2 minute drive and neighborhood and alpine feeling of this "old school" Mammoth establishment. If you don't want to battle for parking and elbow to elbow crowd, try the Austria Hoff.

    We have been to Austria Hof before, and liked the German food and nice warm welcoming decor and vibe. Thought this would be a really fun place to celebrate Christmas Eve this year. However, we were sorely disappointed in the service this year. We get that's it's a holiday, but the waiter's inattention and extremely poor handling of a small issue with our meal turned a special holiday dinner outing into a chore. I hope they take this critcism as constructive, as otherwise, we would definitely recommend. But not worth the poor service.

    Wished the food was as good as the service. But, alas, this is Mammoth. Not exactly a diner's paradise. The lobster ravioli was very rich and delicious. The Osso Buco was quite fatty and a bit on the bland side. A very nice wine wine list that was reasonably priced. Probably would try some of the sausage dishes next time.

    The quality of the food was very good. The "starters" were big enough to be a meal and delicious. The main courses were varied in variety and ample in portion. The creme brulee was the best around but I would skip the other desserts! The booths are not so comfortable but very authentic German in appearance. The wine list is extensive and there is a full bar option. Our waiter was very nice and had good recommendations about the menu. I would definately recommend this restaurant for hardy, winter food!

    After eating at most of the larger eating establishments (like Chart House) around town, it was nice to dine in a more casual environment with some Alpine themed ambience. The Austrian and Germanic food was quite good. The cooked red cabbage was some of the best I've ever tasted. They also have some traditional American dishes as well which is nice for the kids. The portions were larger than I expected so bring your appetite.
