The food was amazing. Excellent service all around. The spaetzle was the only item not worth having. Everything else was exceptional.

I'd recommend this to a friend if they are really easy to please and will eat anything. The menu was limited, one guest eats primarily chicken and that was not on the menu. There were no choices of salad dressing besides the one mustard. Needs more entrees.

Love the food and our second waiter. The first one was behind the bar took forever to get back to us after he got our Appetizers. Finally had to go and ask for someone to let us order our dinner. She was amazing and very attentive.

I’ve always enjoyed the best case. The service is good the food is good. A mixture of comfort food but with an upscale feel that makes you feel like you’ve actually gone out and had an experience :-)

I assumed the chef was from Germany, given the quality of the food, but discovered he/she is from NY. But very authentic tasting nonetheless.

It was a delightful evening meal with my husband and a very good friend. Food choices were varied enough that between the three of us we were able to each try something different. We were seated at a wonderful table right near the window and although there were children sitting around us, it was a pleasant and quiet dining event. Thank you for making the evening enjoyable. BTW wine selection was outstanding!

This is one of my top 5 restaurants in Raleigh.
Consistently excellent, the presentation, the perfect blend of flavors, texture and color leaves one floating in a happy place.
I mostly come for lunch, but dinner yesterday was simply spectacular, cold peach soup, the diver scallops special and the lemon-blueberry kvark cake with coffee, slowly enjoyed along with the 2016 D.F CdNV.
Out of this world on an early hot and steamy summer evening...!

We were there for a 6:30 reservation. The menu is limited. One of the five main dishes (the one I most wanted) was sold out. When I switched to two appetizers instead of a main, one of those was sold out. Early in the evening to be sold out of such a significant percentage of the menu. By all means if menu items are not going to be available clip a note or sticky to the menu so dinner will not waste time making a choice only to be told after indicating a selection that the item one wanted is no longer available.

WE loved everything - the pierogi appetizers, the main courses - our party ordered the duck confit, the schnitzel and the pork chop special. Everything was perfect. We loved the cucumber salad , the spaetzele, the German potatoes and two of us ordered the delicious hazelnut torte for dessert. We will definitely be going back there!

Wonderful as usual. Said it before, let the hipsters have downtown. Food is always good and most of it isn't necessarily traditional German. My wife is not fond of most basic German fare and always finds an interesting salad or summer soup to enjoy here. Service is good, food doesn't take long to arrive and there is plenty of parking on a weekend evening.
Beer list is full of rare German offerings.

Would definitely recommend this place. Food was awesome! Staff were great. Attentive but not clingy(water and drinks never reached the half glass mark) quiet enough to have conversation but just loud enough not to be overheard . Portions were large enough that you could take some home BUT it's really easy to clean the plate... I thought I made good pierogies i was wrong. Really wrong. Great selection of beers if you like that( I do) overall I'd rate this place pretty damn good. I had the seared beef medallions and it was delicious. looking forward to the next time.

Very service oriented, in fact, our table had a principal waiter and then additional staff attending to our party of 5. Food came out quickly and was very good. The sausages and kielbasa were very authentic as well as the schnitzel. I had the fried oysters with a cooled corn chowder which was great and tasty for a warm evening. Recommend the restaurant highly!
