Delicious brunch and one of my favourite places to grab a beer. Their tap menu is fantastic! Check out their funky washrooms.

Nice atmosphere and great for beer and snacks but, in my opinion, overpriced for the food.

I expected a type of atmosphere akin to WRST however I was pleasantly surprised with a amazing open air atmospheric venue, truly an amazing destination.

We had a great experience. We were quite disappointed about the fact there was no red cabbage. Fortunately the food they did have was amazing.

The food was not really authentic german, more of a fusion of sorts. The beer is the only good thing about the place and if you like pretzels, they were pretty good too. Not a good lunch though.

Very nice place. Unfortunately I came on a Sunday when they only serve brunch. Still delicious food though. I came originally for the Schweinshaxe but this gives me another opportunity to visit this restaurant with my wife.

The first time we visited Otto's we had a waiter that was primo. This time we had a waitress that acted like she would rather have been somewhere else and quite frankly the girl cleaning the tables showed a lot more energy. The noise level was very, very loud! I thought for $17.00 my meal should have had more than two spears of asparagus and more avocado would have been nice.

If we would recommend to friends we would say go early to avoid the excessive noise. Also, my friend and I agree that we would much prefer our own table. The two couples beside us talked so loud that I couldn't even hear my friend which was annoying to say the least.

I will say that your bathrooms are rad!!

Absolutely love the food here. Expensive but still worth it every time. The only item I didn't really like was the chorizo - not worth getting at a German restaurant. Seems obvious in hindsight LOL. I usually really like the atmosphere here, but they had projectors playing a hockey game. I know I'm just really biased cause I don't like sports but I would have rather appreciated their cool murals.

This was our first time here and we were so happy with everything. I was dying to try your eggs so I had the vegetarian benedict and I loved everything, the salad, the fingerling potatoes with onions, and of course, the eggs with avocado and asparagus. It was flavorful, rich, and totally enjoyable. Also, our servers were excellent. They totally helped to make our experience a good one. We will be back and we will tell friends. Just a mention though about our reservation. I was bringing my mom and we couldn't take the very small table with the stools. It would have made her totally uncomfortable. The person who showed us to our table totally understood and seated us at another. Thank you.

- took forever to get our drinks
- the curtain meant to keep the cold air out wasn’t functional so each time the door opened a cold breeze came in. Half our group kept our coats on for 1/2 the meal.
- the spatz and cheese dish wasn’t described clearly and unless you know you’re ordering small curd-like dumplings it’s confusing. It says cheese sauce covered in onions etc but doesn’t mention small pasta/dumplings. Three dishes were served of that kind at our table and not one was even half done. It was in dire need of salt too.

Hostess was useless. Lazy and rude. Draft beer was flat and server was not concerned. They didn’t have flatware clean so we had to share and the server got our order wrong. This place is a hot mess. Even though the food was “okay” it’s not worth wasting your time. Will not return. Take your money elsewhere.

We were 4 Moms with strollers. They only had 2 high chairs which was unfortunate, but we appreciated they had any given it’s a beer hall! Haha. The Haloumi Schnitzel and fries got rave reviews by our group. We basically had the place to ourselves because it was snowing like crazy but service was excellent and we had a sunny spot by the front window, which is also right underneath a beautiful hanging plant installation. Our babies enjoyed pressing the button in the bathroom to activate the disco lights as well. Excellent place to punctuate a stroller walk with a bite to eat and a beverage!
