We hadn’t been back in many years because of really slow service, but figured with the reduced capacity limits, it was worth another shot. Well, the service has not improved - it was an hour from the time we sat down until our meals came. Good was decent, but one schnitzel was seriously over fried. Kids loved the band (who do lunch at Hofbrauhaus!).
Great kitchen and service. We didnt get the best experience due to being placed in the back room, which doesnt have same quaint atmosphere as the front room. (Front room was empty) *shrugs*
Food was just ok - did not keep tables far enough apart, and service was very slow.
Service was great. Our waitress couldn’t have been nicer...wine was first rate and the potato pancakes were homemade. Thank you
Oktoberfest celebration! Live music and delicious food!
Charmaine took great care of us. The patio was a delightful place to eat. Food and beer were good!
Great place for Oktoberfest! The music was great fun and the food delicious...don't forget the beer!
The table distancing seemed too close. The food was quite good. Service was great.
The food was exceptional. What a great place to OKTOBERFEST. Will definitely be back
Hands down the best remaining German Restaurant and German experience in the Chicago-land area... It's a no competition winner for their sausage platter taster, their huge pretzel appetizer, Weiner Schnitzel, browned Spätzle with brown gravy and the can't miss liver dumpling soup...
We lived downtown in Lincoln Park back with the other 'Yuppies' back 'in the day' and were near weekly regulars at the incredible Zum Deutchen Eck German Establishment for years until it was unfortunately sold to a condo developer... :(
For the last 20+ years Edelweiss in Norridge has stepped up as the Premier Oktoberfest experience... Beers, Food, Atmosphere and Live German Music!!
(Just bring back your green German hats for the Oktoberfest feasts...)
We had a wonderful time at Edelweiss! We came for my husband’s birthday and the food, service, and live music made it a great experience. Dawn made us feel especially welcome and we’re already looking forward to our return!
Food was great, beers were cold, and service was excellent.
A fav for Ocktoberfest! Great beer on tap, delicious food- we usually order a number of apps- and always great service!
Food was delicious as always. Portions are huge. My only recommendation would be to offer another wine other than Josh.
Good for family with children. Food delicious. Social distancing not implemented consistently, parking lot tight. Recommend going early rather than later to alleviate those issues. Enjoyed the music! Nick our server very patient and knowledgeable of the food and beer.
First time out in months due to virus. Been here before. This however was not a good visit. Soup came out cold. Ordered pork shank which I know takes about 30 extra minutes.
Didn't complain to waiter about cold soup. Almost an hour after ordering out comes our entre. Red cabbage , german potato salad, and the shank were luke warm !! Now I motioned for someone and told them all our soups were cold and now my meal was luke warm !!! After an hour waiting !!
Was told the waiter took one of our meals and served it to another patron!! So the other two meals sat while the staff made our third meal !!
The hostess came over and we discussed my issue and she said she would happily comp my meal. Good response and repeated that she was sorry.
Also comp a round of schnapps which was a nice gesture on her part.
Service and food was wonderful. Took great care to make sure we were social distancing, and the food was fantastic!
Outstanding as usual. Everyone was wearing their masks. Tables are nicely spread out. Menu is smaller than in the past, food is still great! Staff is fantastic- we’ll be back soon.
Great little family owned place! Brought back great memories of Germany!
The food and service was great,the manager Dawn was very hospitable and kind! We always enjoy coming here.
Great service, nice atmosphere and great food!
Another delicious meal at Edelweiss Restaurant in Norridge. You can't go wrong with the sampler platter...a taste of all the best they have to offer. Generous portions all around. Waitstaff are great - we recognize many of them as long-time employees - always a good sign. Convenient parking. They have safely spaced out the tables in the main dining room and all the employees were wearing masks. We felt very safe eating here.
Usual excellent fare, service, and entertainment. we cannot wait for the menu to be expanded to Pre-COVID state.
We were there for an anniversary dinner. I think it would be better suited to a group outing for dinner. Our servers were so great. We were in the Biergarten it began to rain they let us sit under the small roofed area. We wanted to dine outside due to COVID,ventilation and warm summer weather. The staff was troopers and dashed meals and drinks out to us. The food was delicious and portions were generous.
Our vacation to Germany was cancelled due to Covid 19. My husband took me to this lovely and authentic German restaurant so we could at least have the food. They have an outdoor beer garden/patio, and I felt quite safe to eat out. Food was amazing, good beer on tap, wine list.
All staff were personable and professional...my friend and I had a wonderful time, felt comfortable in a friendly atmosphere.....thank you.
The food was very, the beer was also top notch as we enjoyed the Weihenstephaner hefe weissbier. Unfortunately, the bartender put a lemon in the beer! A German would NEVER do this. I quickly removed it. Ordered a 2nd a beer, and again someone added a lemon! You would think the waitress would pay attention and make sure this did not happen again. The food was excellent, we both had the rouladen which was excellent!!!
I ordered mashed potatoes (tasted like instant) and gravy, only I had to ask for the gravy.
The people at the next table had the same issue, guess the cook wasn't paying attention. It was not crowded, only a few regular customers. Will definitely return, only will make sure there isn't a lemon in our beer.
Authentic German atmosphere, cooking and beverages. Live music on weekends and limited parking available. Always a good time and always some food to take home. You will also love the desserts.
Food was good, service didn’t exist
Everything was great but there seemed to be confusion with management
We had heard this was the place for good German food. Well, they have German food. The food was just OK to us. We ordered the pretzel and curds for apps. The pretzel was a bit well done but the mustard sauce was amazing and we still crushed it! The curds were good but the bottom layer was drenched in grease, we did not crush this. Two of the six of us ordered the Friday Fish Fry...also quiet greasy, crushed for the most part. The chicken schnitzel was good. The carrot soup, surprisingly yummy! If we go again, we'll ask for some gravy...maybe that will help. Service was excellent!
Very good comfort food. Stick with the basics... potato pancakes & Weiner Schnitzel
Great German food like grandma used to make. Cozy European atmosphere. The German music is always entertaining. Good value.
Spent our 11th Wedding Anniversary here on Valentines Day. What a wonderful time. The food was delicious. The service was spectacular. Marion was darling and Dawn made us feel right at home. Marion picked my favorite beer in the Flight! Music, beer and good eats. Such a warm and inviting place. Cannot wait to bring all the kids.
Good food , live music , nice atmosphere , decent prices , parking on site .
Good food in a fun setting. Worth the trip to this part of the city.
If you want great food, a fun atmosphere and to be treated like family, then this is the place for you! Our family feels so at home every time we come.
Great authentic German restaurant. Friendly staff, attentive service, nice entertainment, nice ambiance. Food was great- generous portions, authentic flavors. Duck was a pretty dry- I would order something else. We will be back!
Great food and service from Josephine and staff... tastey cream of chicken soup ,pork and Wiener schnitzel ,spaetzle and awesome apple strudel.. thanks again
We had a grand time at the Edelweiss on New Years Eve. Great food, excellent service, and fine music in a cozy, warm atmosphere. Highly recommended!
