Having attended School in
Salzburg, Austria, I have always had a fondness for the culture and cuisine. I have taken my wife to a number of "german" restaurants in the US but they all failed to introduce her to the experience of my youth that I still hold so dear. This weekend, we visited Von Trapp's in Seattle with my son and, for the first time, she could feel the "gemutlicheit" that I experienced in my youth. The restaurant is a very large beer hall with an outdoor beer garden. Highlights were Chicken with lingonberry pancakes, warm potato salad and cheddarwurst sausage sliders."

Got there at445 but no bocce ball
fields open until 815. A bummer. Server, John, was unbelievable. Made the night. Wish we could've done more than eat."

The restaurant had pretty good
food. I will say for sure that the chicken and pancakes was amazing. Also, the Von Trapp Burger was awesome. The appetizer was fine (we got the selection of sausages...it was fine). The dessert was average to middling...coffee was good. The waiter was fairly dismissive at first and grew warmer as the night wore on. I might go back for another meal, but the place was SO LOUD that I couldn't hear my husband across the table and that's not what I wanted in a night out with the spouse. Good food, fun environment, not my taste."

A mini version of a German Beer
Hall with a Northwest twist. Plus people aren't standing on the tables singing to the Oompa music."

However while the ambiance and
decor were great, the food selection and execution were only ok. Nothing stood out, goulash, dinner kebab, curry wurst, ok but missing depth. Would go back with a group to drink from there wide beer selection and maybe play some bocci but wouldn't go back for the food."

My husband and I enjoy their
Sunday Happy Hours that start at noon-4 p.m. A few dollars knocked off the regualr prices is a wonderful thing! A must try in their corquettes... three beautiful round balls of yumminess! Their flatbreads are very tasty as well! Lots of room to roam about. They have 5 bocce ball courts to entertain a group or more. Their beer selection is pretty impressive. Excellent for big groups, families, almost anyone and any amount of people."

Food was plentiful and very tasty.
I had the Wûrst Platter and it was wonderful--enormous and delicious. (For gluten intolerant diners--wurst here is also GF!) The beer was very, very good and it was served in the appropriate glasses. Service was attentive and our waiter quickly remedied any need. The Bocce courts were all active, and they created a fun, festive atmosphere. Even though bocce, I think, is traditionally an Italian game, it gave the restaurant more of a relaxed and fun European feel. I have German cousins and I think they'd enjoy Von Trapps. We will definitely return!"

We chose to try Von Trapp's on a
Sunday afternoon, hoping to avoid crowds. Great time to come! We were pleased with the excellent waitstaff. Pleasant and attentive! Also, there was not a long wait for the food, which was quite tasty. Fun atmosphere and the indoor boule courts are a great addition for rainy Seattle. Von Trapp's would be perfect in my book if: TVs with sports not so load Viennese beer on tap (e.g., Ottakringer) The Flammkuechen more authentic. (Certainly tasty, but crust needs to be thinner, crispier and square in form. Trust me - I have eaten plenty in Alsace!) I would describe Von Trapp's offering more like a flammkuechen-inspired woodfired pizza. In short, worth a trip!"

Beer was tasty, service good but
the food was expensive, Americanized German food. Stay away from the spatzle, goulash, especially."

There were three of us and we
dined during brunchtime on a Saturday. It was pretty mellow and we really enjoyed the moderate noise level. The food was very tasty and affordable for Happy Hour (noon-4). Service was on the so- so side. the restaurant is cavernous... and a few bocce ball courts. Nice touch. Will go back again."

Went here for a pre-bachelorette
night out.... Perfect way to eat good food and get pumped for our evening. Food was very filling and my craft cocktail was amazing!"

Great gathering place for beer and
pretzels to watch a game or play Bocce. Skip the food. It was mediocre."

Our group was completely satisfied
with all aspects of the bar until the bill came. 18% gratuity included for a group of 6? I could maybe see this just for groups 8+. Second, even though the service was excellent, this is a BAR, this is not salty's or the Met. And to just include the tip as part of my bill is a bit arrogant to top it off. We will be back but not in a big group."

Great vibe and even better food!
Wonderful beer selection and fun atmosphere! Will Visit again for sure."

Great to do something different.
We went with two kids, 11 and 13. Sunday evening was calm enough to enjoy it with them. And played Bocci ball after eating. Not a long wait, again because of Sunday evening. I bet it's crazy on a weekend night."

We found that the food and beer is
very good. The establishment is clean, big and has beautiful detailed woodwork. A nice Bavarian feel! Our only frustration was with the server who spent far too much time going over every detail of the menu. A simple introduction and overview of the options would have been enough. We plan on going again with our friends."

This place was everything my
family and I were hoping for, if a little loud. We loved sampling all of the sausages, and the side dishes were very tasty and traditionally German. Nice place, good service, very popular (so we made reservations, and it was very easy to do so online--they even accomodated our needs when we knew we were going to be late). I'd go back!"

Fantastic! My family and friends
brought me for my birthday over the weekend. The food was absolutely killer, and the environment was perfect for a special occasion. Plan on bringing a pile of friends and some extra cash so you can order a smattering of appetizers for your table, and maybe bribe someone to DD for you so you can put away a liter stein or two of some exceptional german beers (yes, they come in liters!) Perfect beer hall, great atmosphere.. everything you'd want out of a German-style pub. OpenTable reservation system works very well, too. Don't be intimidated by a faceless reservation system-- it works like a charm and a hostess will follow up with you by phone before your visit."

Extreme hit spot in Seattle. Take
any reservation you can make and stay as long as you can. Service is great and food is good (German authentic) but the line can exceed 3 hour waits. Go early, drink, eat and play."
Dined on 4/6/2013
Service was great, food was great,
atmosphere was great. Had a ton of fun, played bocce, ate and hung out. Make sure you make reservations, it gets busy early! And get on the list for bocce the second you walk in the door! The wait can be 3+ hours..."

Great place to hangout with
friends to eat and/or have a drink! Would definitely go again!"

Good spatzle, but stay away from
the meatloaf sliders. They were Spam-like, at best. It is new and working out the kinks, so I will give it another try. I am also not a beer drinker, so a lot of the whole concept is not for me."

We loved Von Trapp's ~ all four
adults and two kids. One of our party is German and felt it was "just like a German restaurant". Our table was ready when we got there and they even called my cell phone before we came to make sure they had the reservation correct. We tried several meals and enjoyed them all and played bocce for an hour after dinner. The bocce really added to the experience and gave us a chance to have some fun beyond feasting. We'll be there again!"

OVERALL: Fun atmosphere. Glad we
got there early. Staff was accommodating: we requested a reservation for 5 (largest I could get), but had 30 people over 4.5 hours. They put us in a large booth with hallway standing access that worked OK for adults (not so much for the kids). MENU: I'd like to see more descriptions of the different sausages/meats and beers (love the multi-sizes and the 2 litre BOOT!). Even the sampler didn't list the sausages that were included, but was delicious! And for those not Bavarian-inclined, knowing the diff between Cheddarwurst|Brat|Frankfurter is helpful. WISH: With a name like Von Trapp's, the inference to Sound of Music is inescapable. Any chance for Sound of Music sing-a-long (lottery; one song per hour"

Great food in a very fun
atmosphere. The restaurant is beautiful and unique and the food was delicious. Drinking beer from a glass boot was the highlight of our evening."
