Consistently GoodHave eaten here about 6 times...it is always a great meal. The outdoor patio is wonderful when the weather cooperates and the indoor dining area is very nice and comfortable as well. Have always had great service.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendlyWaiter came right after being shown table. Brought menu and sacked if we wanted anything to drink. Told him and by time. Came back gave him our order. Asked whether or not we needed more time to figure out what we wanted and asked if we had any questions. All in all, a great dinner was was received and everything cooked perfectly.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated 22 Anniversary!The food was fantastic! The service was prompt. We enjoyed ourselves and would return next year!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Service & AtmosphereWe were looking for a new place to take friends who were visiting and found Guglhupf online. The restaurant is tucked behind a few other stores and is truly a gem you stumble upon if you didn't know it was there. The food was outstanding with a nice selection of small plates & traditional dinner plates. The beer & wine selections were spot on with what the group was looking for. The dessert selection was ample and the chocolate sea salt ice cream with caramelized bananas was amazing. We look forward to going back when the weather is a bit warmer and eating on the patio!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfoodthe short beef ribs were too fatty with not much meat and flavor. The weiner schnitzel was very good.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoy the outsideWe really enjoy the outside area. It's wonderful in the evening with the stars. It has become one of our favorite dining places. The service is fantastic.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went with friends and hadWe went with friends and had a wonderful evening. The food is inventive. Pricing is adequate for a place of that caliber. The only fault I could find is that the wine list is very weak. If they want to make the restaurant just German, then the existing list with German, Austrian wines is OK. But since the restaurant is more than just German, some Spanish, French, Italian wines ought to be included.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe unknowingly stayed an hourWe unknowingly stayed an hour past closing, and no one made us feel at all bad about it.

The swordfish on a bed of asparagus was superb. We split three desserts and they were scrumptious as well. We dined outside and as the evening fell and the lights twinkled, we enjoyed the casual ambiance of Guglhupf and continued attentive service from their staff.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever we visit out sonWhenever we visit out son in Durham, we always have dinner there!

Great perfectly prepared food and attentive service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food for moderateExcellent food for moderate prices without pretension. The outdoor patio dining area is just lovely.
The only thing that could be better is the outdoor chairs, which are a bit too large and with no back support.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful EveningI enjoyed the eclectic decor, the airy, multi-level interior, and the absolutely charming patio. Our server was prompt and efficient without being oppressive or effusive. Everyone we interacted with was cordial and professional. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. The evening was a special occasion for us and Guglhupf really came through.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my German mother in lawTook my German mother in law and she Would have liked to see some German favorites like Maultaschen or sauerbraten. Cheese and wurst small plates were excellent and beer and wine selections were great. Looking forward to going back and sitting outside!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious (asThe food was delicious (as usual) and the service was very good. Also, the coffee was outstanding. Best coffee I've had in a long time.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAs someone who is regularlyAs someone who is regularly spoiled with gourmet food at home, I'm not going to lie and say that it's hard to wow me. I'm easily pleased but rarely overwhelmed.
Guglhupf, however, delivers. Excellent food, neat architecture and decor, fabulous service. The menu is small, but I like it because it makes selection easy. Anything on there, I assure you, will be marvelous. I thoroughly enjoyed the rib eye that I ordered, and dessert was spectacular also.
I'm also an avid beer-drinker and a fan mostly of German brews. If you're similar, than Guglhupf can be even better.
If you get a chance, check out the bakery as well.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time diningIt was our first time dining there and it was great. Will definitely return.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! Great atmosphere.Great food! Great atmosphere. Not sure how "authentic" all the German food is, but the food was very good! Service was excellent and quick. We went before a show at the DPAC and had plenty of time (with a 5:30 reservation). I had the mussels as an app and the short ribs as my main course. I could only eat half the short ribs and the mussels i could of had as my main course. The hubs and I shared the dessert, the carrot cake which was to die for! So good. layers and moist and not overly rich. We will definitely be back!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Food, and Date!We had a very lovely evening thanks to an attentive staff who made us feel right at home. Upon arrival the hostess was kind enough to give us a table farther away from the main entrance as that was originally the table we were going to be given. Thereafter our waitress was kind, informative by letting us know what the evening specials were. She gave us enough space to enjoy the romantic evening and enough service to let us feel as if we were being firmly attended to.Most importantly the food was fanastic! We ordered drinks, schnitzel and a chocolate tart dessert. The schnitzel was tender and perfectly seasoned. The potato gratin and vegetables were also made to perfection.Thanks for a lovely evening.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my parents here forI took my parents here for their birthdays. They are particular about their mixed drinks when they order them, and Guglhumpf delivered! My parents really enjoyed everything down from the drinks to dinner. Our wine was amazing. I wish we had been seated upstairs where there were more people, but we had a nice time overall. I wasn't too keen on my carrot cake, but I think it was just me. It was a bit sweat for me and I tasted more orange. I was hoping for a more cream cheese flavored icing too, but overall was okay. We'll be back!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are frequent flyers. WeWe are frequent flyers. We love this place, a little noisy but on a nice day, best place to sit outside in Durham. Food is inventive and we have our favorite dishes that bring us back
over and over. Best service.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our 2nd visit to Guglehupf.This is our 2nd visit to Guglehupf. Hubby had the homemade sausage plate with the lentils and the kohlrabi slaw. This was very good. The lentils had a bit of spice/seasoning that really enhanced the flavor. I had the green salad & potato leek tart. SUPERB!! Perfect for a light supper or lunch. My only complaint is that the chocolate tarte was sold out...I was really looking forward to it. Guess we will have to return so I can experience that bit of decadence!!!
We would have liked to lingered and enjoyed another beer, relax and chill abit. Hubby had to pack for a 9am flight, so we will definately be back. This has become our fav spot for a night out!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! Good service (thoughGreat food! Good service (though the waiters can seem slightly snobbish). Lovely atmosphere. Perfect place for a special occasion.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
