Where else can you get "Hacksen" (Pork shank)? Everything's good here. Next time it's the Rahm Schnitzel. Service is great, nice bar.
LOVE THIS PLACE! Great German Food, Pizza is good too. Definitely will be going back.
We have always loved Himmel’s we were the only ones in the restaurant (early birds) and the ambient music was too loud. It got better when the live singer started.
Happy to be able to bring my father in law in from out of town and have enjoy a wonderful meal in such a welcoming environment with some great live entertainment.
Excellent spot for families. Delicious food, live band, great service. We will be visiting here again.
The food was very good and it was unique to have a choice between Italian and German cuisine. The service was very slow and the waitress apologized saying that several large tables had been seated at the same time. I have a feeling that their kitchen is not the fastest. Given the great food we will return to see and perhaps try something from their pizza oven.
Food was good except for calamari appetizer which was rubbery and tasteless. Not well prepared. Entrees very good.
Is it German? Is it Italian? It’s BOTH, done very well. Went before a show at Old Town School of Folk Music, time was tight, they got us served very efficiently and as friendly as could be given our time constraint. The food was absolutely delicious - the Rahm Schnitzel was crazy good, Weiner Schnitzel, same. The arancini, calamari, sausage sampler and bruschetta apps were fantastic. Decent beer selection and tiny but efficient wine list - complimentary to the food, which is the star of this place. They kept our leftovers in the fridge for us while we went to the show and we spun by afterward to pick them up and have a nightcap and then got to chat with our server from earlier about the quirky and interesting history of Himmel’s. I went back a week later with my son and his friend, a vegetarian, she was having a hard time deciding because there were so many options that either were meatless or she could ask to be meatless. Highly recommend Himmel’s. The moment you walk through the door greeted by the smell of the wood burning oven you will be hooked. Live music a few times a week but I missed both times I was there. Ask for a table away from the door, it was relatively chilly being seated there was the food was so good it didn’t matter to us.
Our food selections were just OK, but I think we just ordered the wrong thing. My rahmschnitzel wasn't very flavorful, and the meat was cut into chunks rather than slices, and the chunks were not all that tender. Also, the sauce didn't have much flavor. My husband's trout tasted a little too fishy. But the sides were very good and the quantities were huge. We saw a schnitzel go buy that could have fed the whole table.
Service was excellent, but we ate early and there weren't very many people there. We'll probably come again and try something different, though it's a bit of a shlep for us.
Surprisingly tasty and authentic German with some Italian thrown in for good measure and variety. Meal was delicious!
