Good FoodEnjoyed dinner before a Folger Theater production. Server was very friendly. Food took quite a while, however. Glad we gave ourselves plenty of time to get to the show.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMbest date ever!We had a request for an entree not on the menu that was our favorite meal - the waitress asked the chef and he said it would be no problem. It was delicious and filling - not particularly cheap, but it came with a great salad. We had strudel for desert. It was a beautiful evening for outdoor dining.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeI've been going to Cafe Berlin for years. It has consistently (very rare for most restaurants) has great food and service. I have never been at all disappointed in either. Portions are sized moderately and they have a great desert selection In the summer they have a very nice outdoor setting area.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll go backWe celebrated our wedding anniversary here and the staff was very attentive and kind. We enjoyed the food, which tasted very much like home (Germany). Although we are vegetarian it was very easy to find something for our taste and the cook even prepared something which was not on the menu. In addition cost/ benefit was very good too!We would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-theatre dinnerCafe Berlin is conveniently located walking distance to the Folger Theatre and the staff readily accommodates theatre goers with time constraints. We have gone here several times and the food has always been very good.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMore new customersWe've been many times but brought 4 friends who had never been there. They will be returning next time in DC! They've been to DC many times and couldn't believe they missed Cafe Berlin. They won't any more. My ratings pretty much say it all. Everything was great! They even accommodated a late request to add the 4 friends to our reservation. That's service.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Unique FoodThe food was terrific.

I ordered flowers to be delivered and when we arrived for our dinner, the waiter gave me a knowing wink and after seating us bought over the flowers to our table and to my surprised wife. The staff was very attentive during our entire meal and the food was just spectacular. Will dine here again and again!!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for lunch and foundWent there for lunch and found everything to be very charming, authentic and tasty. Looking forward to trying it for dinner sometime.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen in DC, Café Berlin isWhen in DC, Café Berlin is a favorite of ours. The food is consistently wonderful and the homemade deserts are just a delight; obviously house made and not from the pre-made-restaurant-frozen-desert-factory that churns out one cloyingly sweet confection after another. And if that is not enough, the restaurant is an excellent value.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you've ever been to GermanyIf you've ever been to Germany and miss the food there, then you need to visit Cafe Berlin! The food is authentic Bavaria and the beer is imported- GREAT spot!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like German food, itIf you like German food, it is definitely the place to go. However, if you don't, they also have other menu items like salmon and steak. Enjoyed the German wine and my husband enjoyed the German beer. It's lovely to eat out on the garden patio, weather permitting. The service was great. Thought the prices were better than most as far as DC goes.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM$$$ food at a $$ priceThe specials are consistently excellent. The chef makes the German traditional dishes as one would expect them. No surprises there, but the specials are where the chef shines. I had the salmon special. The fish was cooked perfectly and the sauce was light and flavorful. Service is always consistent. The ambiance is dated, but the place is very clean...something important in restaurants. Cafe Berlin is a place to go for good food at a reasonable price.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful meal, andAlways a wonderful meal, and very friendly and fast service. It is really an occasion to dine there.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my Minnesota family hereTook my Minnesota family here and had a ball. Authentic German food, great beer, wine and schnapps!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit slowFood comes out slowly. Not a good place to go if you are in a hurry. If you want to take your time then it's an excellent place to go.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic German cuisine servedFantastic German cuisine served by a friendly staff. Great selection of German beers for your meal.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSome significant menu changesSome significant menu changes and additions as the new owner makes the place her own. The food was several notches better than usual -- interesting, thoughtful, full of élan. We were very happy with our meals.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & Fantastic BeerLoved all the pretty christmas lights outside, very welcoming. Staff were great , friendly, helpful an knowledgable about the menu and beer / wine list. Inside decor could do with a little updating, but I can easily over look that for the cosy atmosphere, good service , great food and beer. Basically its good home cooked German food, comforting and filling served with a great choice of wine or beer at a very reasonably price. If you visit you simply HAVE to have one of the great beers on offer, you won't be disappointed.
Outside is a beer garden which I should imagine on a summers days a great place to sit with a tankard or two.
Highly recommend will most certainly be back.12/5/2012 12:00:00 AM
