Great food--fantastic red cabbage. Our wait-person (Bree) was delightful--competent, professional, non-intrusive, and a fantastic sense of humor. We four had different meals, and each one was excellent. Wine selection was excellent. Highly recommended. Be sure and get reservations, especially for dinner.
What a fantastic experience. I was nervous about going to a strictly German restaurant. I wasn't sure what to order. The waitress was exceptional. She explained everything very well and all 4 of us got a fantastic meal. I would highly recommend.
The best German food outside Germany!
The crab cakes & escargot appetizers was one of the best, I have tasted! House vinagret was light & delicious on the salad. The main meal we tried was the Mozart plater! A sampling of choice meats. The red cabbage was flavorful & not heavy or too sour. Reminded me of a holiday adventure. The pork shanks braised to perfection and tender! Wild board sausage had an authentic European taste profile, very nice tasty. Port sampler was excellent. Everything was delicious & my finances 50th birthday was a meal to remember. We will be back again & again.
I'd read a number of rave reviews and was excited to book Mozart's for my best friend's bachelorette party. The food was good, but not particularly noteworthy. The service was really slow especially considering the place was practically empty. When I had booked, I'd noted it was for a bachelorette and it felt like they could have cared less. While the cocktail list was notable and fun, the drinks themselves were a hit and a miss. Two drinks went unfinished... at a bachelorette party!
We dined on Saturday evening, 13 February, at the height of dinner rush. Which is it romantic & quiet or kid friendly & noisy? It really depends who the diners are and when you go. We have eaten here a few times and it has been both. This last time there were a couple of large parties, some with kids and the level of noise was a little bit more than moderate. It was obvious everyone was having a great time. Have been here before when it was quiet and reserved. It really depends on when you go and who is there. FOOD is fresh , hot and taste great...
Mozart's offers authentic German food with a great atmosphere.
This was our first trip to Leavenworth, so I have nothing in the area to compare Mozart's to, but the food was just average EXCEPT for the escargot, which was fantastic. The service was a bit awkward, our server came to take our drink orders and wanted our entire meal order at the same time. It wasn't rude, just unexpected in a restaurant that is billed as fine dining. Our meals were exactly as described, served at perfect temp and a nice portion size, but other than the escargot, were not especially notable.
We showed up about 10 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated immediately. They were still on the festival menu and we wanted to sample as much as we could, so we got the fried cheese trio, gnocchi with lardon, symphony of salads, and the Amadeus platter. The food was amazing!!! There were four of us and we were stuffed to the gills, but still had just enough room for the delectable marzipan torte and pot de creme. The only sour notes were that we came on a busy night and it seemed that we were being served by 3 or 4 different severs throughout the meal and also a large party came in to the table behind ours and there wasn't quite enough room because they kept bumping into our chairs. Overall though, it was a great choice!
Mozarts will be our go to place for a nice sit down occasion in Leavenworth.
Such an amazing place with great service, food and ambiance
We went there on a very stormy Tuesday night. We were one of 3 total guests on a miserable evening. We were promptly seated ordered a nice bottle of wine and an Oktoberfest style beer. The beer came in a frosty mug and brought back memories - 50+ years ago - of German beer. We started with a salad sampler including potato salad, carrot, sauerkraut and greens which were all good. I had sauerbraten which was fork tender with a great gravy with a hint of acid. A generous helping of red cabbage was wonderful. A Bohemian dumpling was sort of bland. Spouse had a wiener schnitzel that was quite tough and the breading needed some seasoning. The potatoes were well cooked and there was a compote of cranberries and lingonberries.
Dessert was a marzipan multi-layered cake with chocolate that was wonderful. The atmosphere is nice and the service was good.
We have had dinner at Mozart's each visit to Leavenworth. The food is incredibly good: well-prepared quality ingredients, healthful and tasty. The low-light ambience, decor, classical music (sometimes live piano), and staff make for a quiet, relaxing, special evening out.
Mozart's has a lot of local Leavenworth inspired foods. Great for all ages, the dining area is small and quaint. You'll often find they've a pianist.
I have visited Mozart's a couple of times before. I was again very pleased with the food, the service, and the whole feeling there. I had sauerbraten which was delicious. Also the sampler salad and especially the Apple Strudel were terrific! The Apple Strudel and coffee capped my meal.
Great food, amazing staff and beautiful view even amongst the rain!!
We visited this restaurant Oktoberfest weekend. We knew it would be difficult to find a walk-in spot for ten people so we used Open Table to see what our options were. There was plenty of availability, a table large enough for our group, kid friendly options, and friendly service. The food was great with a lot of different Bavarian options. Will definitely visit again.
Due to a couple of large noisy groups in the main dining area, requested move to another place so were placed in a alcove off the bar area. Lost a bit of the atmosphere, however, and service was a bit slow. But the food was OK.
Everything was good from the food to the service, one of the better German restaurant's in town. Nice to see they keep family traditions in their recipes .
The service on this evening was terrible. We were seated on time for our reservation but ignored for some time. Not even a drink order was taken. One person said they were understaffed that evening. A server at one pointpoint, after being hailed said she would return after running a couple credit cards. She never returned. After the wait another server took our full order for drinks, appetizers and entrées it took another wait to get drinks. The food was average appropriate for the price. I hope this was just a bad night.
The restaurant was quiet on Thursday. We were seated next to window as requested. The service was good. We had the sampler. The portion was big. We just got back from München, Germany and found their food not that authentic.
We tried Andreas Keller the following night. Although it is owned by the same family, the menu is quite different and food is more tradional.
My wife & I wanted Bavarian food while others wanted regular dinner so all in the party were able to satisfy their tastes. The food was good and our waitress was excellent. We would go back!
For a Bavarian town like Leavenworth we were pretty disappointed in the selection of Bavarian restaurants and even more disappointed in the few menu items that were offered. The Black Forest Steakhouse in Blaine, WA has a much better menu and much better food as well!
The food and service was great, however it was very expensive. We got the fondue and the escargot to begin the meal, and then we had the halibut and the meat platter. The meat was all very good, however it was fatty (I suppose that's the way it's meant to be though). The halibut was a bit dry, but flavorful. The total for those four things (with tax and tip) came out to about $170...definitely worth going to once or twice for a romantic evening, but not with kids or on a regular basis.
We arrived at 6:30 and had the whole place to ourselves. Later another couple came in. It's much more fun to eat in a busy spot. However, the service was terrific, we had the famous tray of German treats or two. From other reviews that were negative, we hesitated to order it, but it was terrific. I must admit that the pork belly was not something I could "stomach". 😀. However, the rest of it was very tasty and over generous for two. We had a bottle of wine and it was not expensive, but good, from Walla Walla. We would go back.
Everything was great after they figured out which waiter was ours. Took about 10 min for me to finally ask if we had a waiter and then service was great after that, was just a misunderstanding between hostess and waitress. Food was plated amazingly and each individual flavor was amazing. Will be back when back in town.
The food was amazing. Especially the Schizzel which is a dish i love. The plate of meats us wonderful, lots to choose from and huge portions. Sitting out on the porch is fun in case there is live music show in the park. Only problem is there is no handicsp access. Second floor, no elevator...
It was quite a bit busier on our second night dining at Mozart's. However, the staff remembered us from the day before (in fact, the waitress remembered us from our visit last year) and were very warm and welcoming. We all ordered different items than we had the previous evening, and continued to be both impressed and please with the presentation, flavors, and overall quality of the food. I can't offer any higher recommendation than to say you will not be disappointed with the food and beverages.
We have always enjoyed dining at Cafe Mozart (now called Mozart's) in Leavenworth. In addition to the excellent service, the food is always great. On the weekends, they have a live pianist playing a variety of music that ranges from classical to modern that provides a great backdrop for the dining experience. When we are in the area, we always make dinner reservations for our evenings and have never been disappointed.
My wife and ordered the Mozart Platter for 2 which provided a sample of a variety of meats; the petite pork shanks and cripsy pork belly were the highlights. The weiner schnitzel was very good and by the time we got to the sausages we barely had room to eat all that was left. This platter could probably be shared amongst 4 people with some light appies.
Very good service and a great experience.
Cozy vibe and great food, we went during Maifest and we could hear the band even while we were sitting inside. It wasn't very busy (our reservation was at 5 but they seated us early at like 4:40) there were only about 3 other tables seated. Probably didn't need the reservation. Loved the food! Big portions! We didn't have room for dessert but we'll be back and make sure to make room for it!
We enjoyed our visit very much. The restaurant had recently been remodeled according to the owner. The food was very good and we had a great time. Our kids loved the cheese fondue.
Good food in a tourist town
I am always amazed at how empty this place is, because the food is really SO good. My family has been eating at Mozarts for a long, long time and it is consistently great! This time, I had the chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce and spaetzle. It was fantastic! We were literally the only people in the restaurant, so service was attentive and quick!
We have a place near Leavenworth and are frequent dinners in the town.
In a town filled with average German food, Cafe Mozart is a standout. "Mozart's Favorite" and the "Orecchiette" are 2 of the best entrées in the town. Even on busy weekends the service is great.
Too expensive for the food quality. Sounds german but does not taste German.
My wife liked her schnitzel on salad.
My wild boar bratwurst dinner in general was a bit disappointing. It was just generally not exciting or real tasty. I didn't like the red cabbage. I must mention my spaetzle side dish. Your spaetzle was terrible. It was very tasteless, like it had been boiled too long. And the consistency was very poor - soggy. I could only eat a very small portion.
Two evenings before we ate at Andrea Kellars. The food there was excellent and their spaetzle and red cabbage were very excellent. Go down there and try it.
The piano player was excellent, as was his music. Your ambiance and service were both very good.
My husband and I visited (with a reservation) the night before Christmas Eve. When we arrived at 5:00pm and our table by the window was already given away. We were put in a smaller room which was ok, but wasn't as romantic as we'd hoped for. Our food (two sandwiches) seemed a little overpriced but they were still pretty delicious. I was sad to have so many Rieslings to choose from, but when I asked for one by the glass, the lady offered only two by the glass options. The waitress was acting as host (when we arrived) and our server (when we were seated). She didn't bring the rolls she said she would and generally was too busy with so many other people to really be genuine in her concern for us. I am glad I visited once, but would not go back again.
I thought it was a restaurant we had gone to the last time we were in Leavenworth but it wasn't. It didn't have as good a view because of fewer window tables but it was a bit fancier. I had pork schnitzel which was very good and it had a mushroom sauce and I hate mushrooms but for some reason on schnitzel its good. Had the apple strudel which is their specialty and it was great. Kind of a small portion but great. We had the cheese for an appetizer and they were good, maybe a bit of a small portion but good. Service was slow but got alittle better with time. We had an early reservation at five and they kept setting people after we got there even though we had not been greeted for ten minutes, we almost left.
We arrived about 8 minutes earlier then our reservation time and although the restaurant was mostly empty with all tables set we were told we had to wait while I table was being prepared.
Service was VERY slow throughout. Zero atmosphere. While the name of the place is Cafe Mozart nothing in the decor went along with the name. A piano sat in the restaurant but it was never played and no music was played at all in any form. Took well over 10 min after we gave our order to get my not very cold beer. Food was ok. Never had our water glasses filled or offered to be filled. It was disappointing.
This restaurant is typical of those we found in the village in Leavenworth. The ambiance is far better than the food. We will go outside of the tourist zone on our next visit to see if we can eat better and spend less.
