Rhein Haus is your stereotypical biergarten in Capitol Hill, and it’s great. There’s a patio, glass boots for beer, and comically large pretzels.

The Infatuation is an app and website which uses a small team of local editors who dine anonymously to rate and review restaurants. We are partnering with them to bring you their smart, helpful, trustworthy reviews of restaurants on OpenTable

I was really excited to come to the restaurant however, I was quickly disappointed with the food. I ordered a giant pretzel and a brat sandwich. The food was Luke warm when It came to me and it didn’t taste very good. I was not impressed at all with the food.

The food came out burnt and did not taste like the German food I had in Germany, base on my experience, I would not recommend this restaurant if you are looking for the type and taste of the food you were use to in Europe.

We have been earing at several restaurants in Germany and in Austria and we love schnitzel. This is the main reason why we were looking for an authentic German restaurant here in Seattle. However, it was cold and pretty dark inside, the atmosphere in general was not at all inviting and the food (we ordered pork schnitzel with potato salad) was just mediocre. The breading of the schnitzel was drenched with some sauce and the potato salad was very greasy. Overall, we hoped for something much better.

Our family met up here for a birthday celebration. It is a great place to go for celebrations! The food was great, we got a wonderful table where we could see the Bocce games, and the wait staff were attentive. We have never played Bocce before - what fun! Easy to learn and you can often play more than one game within the allotted time. As far as the food goes - the hardest part is choosing what to eat! They have a good-sized selection and it all sounds great! We will have to go again so we can try something else on the menu.

Love the German beer and food is great. Some touches like jalepenos on the flamkuchen (German flatbread pizza) detract from some of the dishes. Good German food doesn't need a redo. When you want German food, though, this is a great place. Fun with groups, especially.

We were a party of 8 for a birthday brunch and football outing - the drinks were great and the food and service even better. The waitress was very attentive to us for along 4.5 hour stretch and even gave the birthday a beer on her! Definitely will be back, great for groups!

Great place to go for watching sports and having a beer and snacks with friends. We like the shareable food better than the entrees. My friend missed a step, fell and hit her head. The staff was incredible as they helped her before the ambulance came.

Extremely noisy. Goulash soup was good, but Jaegerschnitzel was burnt and there was hardly any mushroom sauce on it. It was also pretty bland - needed some seasoning. Spaetzle was also burnt. Peanut Butter Crack & Salted Caramel Ice Cream was weird - the ice cream tasted bitter. Although it was really busy, the server did a decent job of being attentive.

Food was good, I liked the big bierhaus feel but the music was more geared to the bar crowd (loud and harsh) than the 6pm dinner crowd. I wasn’t expecting accordions but the ambience could be improved if I could eat without my cutlery vibrating from the music.

The website said they opened at 4. We got there at 4 because we had an event at 6. We found out they only have happy hour from 4-5. We couldn't order off the full menu until 5. Only a few snacks available. Also it was very hot. The doors were open and no air conditioning. The waiter did bring us a menu a little before 5 and the food was pretty good.

Vibe of restauarant was cool and food was pretty good, especially the pretzel. I would have rated higher but we sat outside and could not get any service. We decided to try inside and our waiter spent most of his time flirting with the table across from us (not that I blame him). We had to speak up to get anything and to get our check. I would recommend we just probably had some bad luck.

Beware the parking. As in--none reasonable. However, the food was delicious--I had the pork schnitzel with apple slaw; my friend has bratwurst with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut. The service was perfect, attentive but not intrusive. I did like it a lot.

I love German food, because I'm a German descendant, and this satisfies my need for brats, schnitzel, beer, pretzels, etc. They have a lot of German beer on tap, which is great!
Someday I want to try out the bocce.

Came here with a large group of friends to celebrate my birthday and was more than impressed! Our waitress was very friendly, attentive, and just simply adorable! The food is excellent - definitely recommend the habanero cheddar wurst and the small pretzel with horse radish cream cheese! My friends brought a birthday cake that the staff allowed us to enjoy and brought us small plates and utensils. Have been to the Tacoma location but everything about the cap hill location is WAY better! Didn’t get a chance to play bocce ball but I will definitely be back to give it a try!

It was Valentine's Day and we showed up a bit early. Even though we had a reservation we were sat by the front door which was cold particularly in view of the cold weather and for my wife who has fibromyalgia. Food was OK but not really German but someone's variation. Beer and schnapps were very good.
