What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.6

Despite the name, Edi And The Wolf has a great spirit to it, and is quite Infatuation-friendly. The food is as accessible and familiar as any – the words for the dishes are just spelled crazy.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

This is our favorite place to dine at. We come back very frequently and it never disappoints. The service is incredible - it’s always the same people working and they always treat everybody with such kindness and attention. It is truly the individuals who make up a team that contribute to the general feeling of how successful that team is, and Edi and the Wolf hit the nail right on the head! Can’t wait for another excuse to ask my boyfriend to take me there ;)

The service was very slow, we had to wait 40 minutes to get our food. This also happened with the desert, they just forgot about the desert.

I've lost count of how many times we've been to Edi & The Wolf. One of my favorite restaurants in the city by far. The food is consistently amazing, the service is always kind and attentive, and the ambiance is unbeatable. Recommend the schnitzel and the spatzle, as well as whatever fish is on the menu. Always incredible!

This is a cozy spot. The space is big enough that you don't feel over-cramped but still has that cozy feel to it. The food was delicious. I wouldn't describe the food as totally Austrian, but rather Austrian-inspired. We were 4 and all had different main dishes - we all enjoyed whatever we ordered! We shared starters and they were great too (definitely recommend the octopus & the broccoli/chorizo). The service was top notch, we asked to move from the common table once one of the tables on the side opened up and they easily accommodated our request. We were celebrating a birthday and when we asked for a candled dessert, the staff asked us for the name of the person celebrating - just a nice personalized touch that shows they're being attentive and not just rolling people in and out.

Felt a little impersonal as we were seated but no engagement by staff. This was thanksgiving and we chose to spend it there, I’m Austrian by decent and know restaurants there are more of a family feel know matter where you’re from. I came with my three kids, one flew in from Milan, the other from Houston and my oldest from Chelsea... I’d love to come back and see your usual menu and hang out again

Edi and The Wolf has been a standard bearer for originality and quality in the East Village since opening. Austrian food and wine are on evidence but since most Americans don't know what that is (think weinerschnitzl and schlag), simply expect to find freshest ingredients, beautiful display, simple yet original and tasty dishes likely to delight anyone who gets superb cooking. The room is dark, cozy and like a country inn. The service is amazing--quiet, vigilant but not hovering, knowledgeable, and ready and wanting to help.

I can recommend everything about this restaurant EXCEPT the noise level, which makes it frustrating or impossible to hold a conversation. I return once a year hoping that they have ameliorated it. I will try once more before they lose my business for good.

As Austrian citizens living in the US we were looking for authentic Austrian cuisine and atmosphere. We had the Liptauer spread, the Wiener Schnitzel, and the apple strudel. All were excellent. I thought there could have been a bigger variety of authentic Austrian dishes on the menu. After trying the house gruener Veltliner (dry Austrian white wine) which was mediocre we decided on a bottle of a 2017 one which was excellent and nicely chilled. My main complaint would be that the decor was too dark and gloomy in my opinion and did not reflect the happy Austrian vibes I was hoping for. They were maybe trying to give the restaurant a rustic mountain cabin look but it gave you a little scary feel rather than a cozy one. Loud music that was definitely not Austrian also did not help in creating a sense of Austrian gemuetlichkeit. However, I would go back for the food. Please switch the lingonberry sauce to cranberry sauce to go with the schnitzel!

We were really hoping to love this place but were so incredibly dissapointed and it was on our anniversary. Our reservation was made weeks ago for 8:00 pm and I requested to sit in a booth instead of the communal table. We ended up waiting for 40 min with no apologies from the host and no care in the world. Then we finally get seated in the communal section, with not even being able to speak to each other because it was super loud. We left because we didn’t want to eat somewhere after receiving such poor service.

I had an amazing dining experience at Edi & the Wolf primarily because of the ambience. Half of the front side wall of the restaurant was intentionally left unconstructed, allowing plenty of post-summer breeze into the restaurant. Warm colored lights were everywhere which complimented the light brown wood tone well. The menu had beautifully crafted leather covers. It was also some of the best Austrian food I’ve tasted. The ravioli was exquisite, and the pork schnitzel was amazing. Chicken was average. I will return and try more items on the menu.
Drinks menu wise, the range of choices was quite impressive for a small restaurant like itself. The cocktail menu was a nice surprise. I strongly recommend the bourbon based cocktail. It was very enjoyable.

Loved the feel of this place. Rustic and comfortable. We tried the restaurant week menu. I had the Roasted Peach Salad. It was good, but I would try the salad my friend had next time, which was the heirloom tomato salad (really good dressing). We both had the schnitzel, very good as well. Desserts were also really good. Very good service, friendly and attentive. Enjoyable evening from start to finish!
