BRONWYN is a restaurant and bar located in Union Square, Somerville, featuring the cuisine of Germany and greater Central and Eastern Europe. Chef Tim Wiechmann draws on his cultural heritage to create hand-crafted sausages, schnitzels, traditional noodles and specialties such as Riesling sauerkraut and giant pretzels. An extensive list of bier and regional wein has been curated to enhance the cuisine. The chef’s wife, Bronwyn, is the restaurant’s namesake. The interior of BRONWYN embodies the rusticity of a European tavern and is adorned with the handcrafted treasures of the Chef’s travels and his family’s heirlooms. Upon entering the restaurant, one is reminded of the artistic spirit that imbues the neighborhood of Union Square.

    The restaurant has a great selection of German beers (the Austrian and Polish selection is rather poor) but the food leaves a great deal to be desired. It's a strange, not really authentic mix of German and Eastern European cuisine. For American standards it's an OK place but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wants to try some authentic food from German-speaking countries.

    Having grown up in Germany I really miss German food and beer gardens. Bronwen at least gives me a sense of being back there. The food is good and I love the gurken salat and Brezen. Miss, miss, miss real german biergartens.

    Great German food with a twist, Currywurst anyone? Had the Spatzel and bratwurst sausage, delicious. So good I had to have more. Started with a Bretzel with horseradish mustard, wonderful. Anyway thanks Bronwyn for a great dining experience. Did I mention the 32 German beers available?

    We stopped here before heading into Boston for music...I was craving German comfort food and Bronwyn delivered!! It’s a lot tight, but they created a traditional German beer house interior...the noise level is high because the spot is so small and was a little difficult getting in and settled, but once we did it was fantastic! The bread dumplings were perfect and the beer selection was spot on!

    Delightful Sunday brunch! Loved every bite - as did my kids, who dove into some familiar options and explored new tastes on the Bronwyn menu. Will come back to try their expansive beer list and enjoy dinner fare.

    My boyfriend and I had dinner here recently and we were so happy!!! The food from the appetizer to the dessert was excellent! I don’t think I’ve had a dinner that’s excellent from start to finish! Usually, something may be just ok. But I can honestly say this place is top notch!!! The decor had an old world but modern feel. The lighting reminded me of places in Zurich or Munich! We had the Dine Out menu which is definitely a must-try! You still have time! Our main dish was a shared pork shank of generous proportions that was so tender and just divine! Everything on the plate from the pork to the sour kraut and potatoes, plus slices of apple was just scream-out-loud excellent!!! Service was stellar! Ambience was very nice! So happy we found Bronwyn!!!

    I find the food quality inconsistent. Seems it is highly dependent on who is in the kitchen, I have had the same dishes a few times and find them varying in quality quite a bit.

    The beer was superb as always. The waitress was very helpful with recommendations. We ordered the meat platter for 2. I’ve had this many times and am reminded again just how fatty beef shank is and why I should order something else. Most of the other entrees have dairy tho. And as always, i remind myself that i should just have beer and a snack at the bar and dinner somewhere else.

    My husband and I went there on a week night just because we love schnitzel and wanted to try the place. Our waiter was exceptional, the ambiance really nice and cozy, but the food was disappointing especially if you've had authentic schnitzel in the past. Unfortunately, both my husband and I had, having lived in Germany for a while, and also having had an excellent German restaurant near our old place in IL. The cut was very small and not thin enough, and it gave you the impression that it was deep-fried. The spaetzle were way too greasy and almost lost in the cheese and butter. The potato salad and pretzel were ok, but they were not what we went to the restaurant for. Finally, the drinks and beer menu were way over priced ( $11 for a glass of gluewein(!), $11 for Koelsch Frueh which is normally at half price even when it's imported). We really wanted to like this place, but we are not going back.

    Bronwyn is not just one of the best German restaurants in the Boston area, it's one of the best German restaurants in the U.S. Our meal was spectacular as always. Slightly pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

    Bronwyn is one of our favorites. The ambience is great, the menu enticing and the service is very attentive. The beer options range from a lite lager to a hearty dark - and many options in between. We had the potato salad and the spaetzle to start - both excellent. My wife had the spaetzle as her main course and I had the sauerbraten. While the sauerbraten was excellent, her spaetzle was a little undercooked and swimming in butter. Regardless, Bronwyn is an excellent place to return to over and over!

    Amazing service from the moment I walked in. The hostess was very nice and recommended we eat in the front area near the bar because it was quieter. The waiter was extremely nice, gave great suggestions and also was attentive. Food was outstanding! I had Schnitzle and it was amazing. Highly recommend eating here.

    I love this place, my mom is from Munich so coming here when I’m in town is a taste of her homeland and change from my usual go tos. The details from the menu to the decor and beer offerings are perfect for family meals or dates. I definitely urge everyone that likes good beer or cocktails paired with hearty food to drop in. Parking is tight but a loop around the block usually allows for street parking or a spot in the small lot to open up.
