    Love bierhaus for its after work ambience. Went to "bottomless brunch" for the first time last Sunday and was beyond disappointed There was a party of about 20 people and my group of 5 people and that was it in the entire restaurant. Everyone in my group chose to get the unlimited champagne. We all get our first glasses fine. Then the waitress tells us that we will now be getting white wine because they ran out of champagne. Then she miraculously comes back with a pitcher of champagne that she says she found in the bar. She pours it into all of our glasses and someone literally gagged from how foul whatever this concoction that was now in our glass was. They only have 4 choices for brunch entree and they all leave much to be desired.

    Our visit was on a Wednesday night. The band that was playing was doing bad covers in some sort of Polish/German style. It made the visit unenjoyable. The food was o.k. The beer was pretty good but we did not linger because of the bad, loud music.

    They rudely cancelled my reservation under a false accusation that I cancelled reservations in the past. I am an avid user of open table, and sometime plans change, but I always make sure to cancel at least 30mins before the reservation, so the one time I cancelled on them was not unacceptable and DEFINITELY not a no-show! They also forgot to mention the other 3 times I did come in with a party of 6 in the last couple of weeks. Bottom line is that they wanted to cancel my reservation as it was during the WC finals and they probably needed the table for one of the staff's friends. As unprofessional as it can get!!!!! Other than that the food is reasonably nice, and the beer is good but having only one brewery gets boring after a while.

    Food wasn't good, and the tables were hard to get in and out of because they had backs. Not like benches at other biergartens. The food wasn't good, and very expensive. I won't be coming back.

    The food was ok, nothing special, same with the beer. You're really paying for the experience, which is worth it because it's a fun place to try. The service is slow, there only seemed to be two waitresses. Tuesday turns out to be trivia night and we had a blast with that!

    Authentic atmosphere. Great German beer. We both ordered schnitzel which is what we were looking for. It was good, but the plate was swimming in vinegar from the salads. When we pointed tips out to the waitress, she apologized, promised to mention it toothed kitchen, and took a nice chunk off our bill. May return to try the sausages.

    Have been looking for a place that serves really good German bratwurst. Saw this and decided to give it a try. Was not too crowded and with our reservation, we were given a table for 3 which was great. Most of the tables we're for communal seating. Pretzel was authentic and delicious. Our server was very helpful. Had the Wurst sampler - I guess we were expecting something really special. The pear and endive salad was unique and refreshing. Kid friendly place and food choices. Topped off our meal with Apple strudel and vanilla ice cream. All in all a good place to go when craving some German fare in NYC.

    Met a business associate for lunch - have been there a number of times, and am definitely a fan, but they have a very limited wait staff during the lunch hours, so it does take a while to order, or re-order additional drinks. Food is always good, but another waiter would be a big help.

    This place is great for a night out with work colleagues, big tables, too much noise to talk shop and huge beers to hid behind when the boss arrives! Staff are always great and very friendly/

    we went for lunch on an off day so not much going on. the sausages were pretty good, but the potato pancake was heavy as a rock. I'm sure this place rocks in the evening time, but lunch was not that exciting.

    The authentic German food was great. We were late for our reservation but they accommodated us right away. There was four in our party and everyone loved what they had. The family style tables are great to meet other guests and make for a great evening. It gets loud inside, so if you are looking for a quiet place, this is not the place. There is live German music which get the guests going. They have an outside balcony which is nice. Will stop again when in New York.

    Fun place but BEYOND LOUD! A fun place if you enjoy German beer, food and music. Perfect spot if you have no desire to speak to anyone that you're with. It's not possible to talk to anyone if a band is playing.

    If you're looking for a fun time with co-workers or friends this is perfect place to go just don't expect much conversation. The band is really fun in a freecreditreport.com kind of way but quite loud so get all your talking done between their sets. The food was decent but not sure how authentic so I wouldn't recommend on that basis. The beer and service make it worth a return trip.
