Food excellent. Server was very organized. We had 11 people with separate checks. She was great. Very noisy though. They need better acoustics.
Will definitely go back.

We have eaten at Alps Village at least a half dozen times now. The food has always been great, whether Mama Milka's Goulash, Chicken Paprikash, Grilled Sausage Platter or Cabbage Rolls or the many other delicious offerings on the menu. Having lived in the Dolomite Alps in Northern Italy and travelled extensively in the region (Germany, Austria, Croatia, Italy), I can say that Alps Village certainly brings me back to the many small establishments I ate in there that take such pride in their food and hospitality. "Z" and all of the other servers make you feel like this is YOUR neighborhood and your restaurant. Try them, you won't be disappointed!

We LOVE Alps Village!!! This place is the absolute best in The Valley for Eastern European and Bavarian food. I had the Jägerschnitzel Land my wife had the Goulasch - both tasted fresh and delicious!

Not what I expected at all. Online info led me to think it was a German restaurant. It was a restaurant with lots of different choices but with a hint of German. The decore, music, and feel was not even close to German. Still good though.

Exceptional tasting food along with top-notch, friendly service. I will also add: very generous portion! If we lived closer this would become a #1 go-to.

We were visiting the area and Alps Village was a suggestion from a friend. Since we couldn’t decide on one dish, we ordered the sampler platter. Everything was absolutely delicious. The bartender knows how to make a drink too!!!

We started with a salad and the chicken & cabbage soup, which was outstanding. We then had the Alfredo with chicken and the chicken yagerscnitzel (sp?) which were both very good. The down side was the very loud music that people were shouting to be heard over. That aside, we enjoyed it and left satisfied.

The spaetzle was a disappointment. We’re used to spaetzle that has a light sauce. This was dry as a bone and too chewy. The cucumber salad had a terrific yogurt and dill dressing, but there was too much lettuce and not enough cucumber. The schnitzel was very good. The beef cordon blue was a bit disappointing—like deli slices of roast beef wrapped around cheese filling.

We have come LOVE this restaurant for our date nights!

Four times in two weeks and we have tried quite a few of the dishes.

The beet salad, calamari and pretzels are phenomenal appetizers.

We’ve had the chicken schnitzel- breaded and unbreaded- as well as the sausage platter, stuffed cabbage, chicken soup, cucumber salad and our favorite dessert: the gluten free white cake.

This is now our go to spot for dinner out!!

This is not authentic German cuisine- at least the weinerschnitzel wasn’t. It was more like a deep fried veal cutlet than the schnitzels we enjoyed in Austria and Germany. The red cabbage was totally missing on one plate and was minimal on the other. The cabbage was cold, not heated.

The background noise was uncomfortably loud. This is more of a neighborhood restaurant for the locals.

Our waitress was wonderful. Very efficient and pleasant.
