We hadn't been to the Berghoff for years. Our return trip was worth it. The food is still good. Love their pumpernickel bread. Miss the home-brewed ginger ale, though. If you've never been, you need to go. If you haven't been in a while, time for a repeat visit.
The Berghoff is a Chicago Classic, dating back to the World's Fair! The ambiance was a little weird, but the food was good. The beer selection was great and the menu was very extensive. It's walking distance from the theater district and made for a good dinner before a show!
Went to Berghoff before the Blackhawks game. Great service and very good food. There were very traditional options and new twists on old favorites
We were very disappointed, since the restaurant's food had nothing to do with authentic German cuisine and it was pretty expensive.
So many good things to say about The Berghoff. An iconic landmark where you're cocooned in wood, stained glass, linen, and crystal. My friend and I arrived at our appointed time and were immediately seated; our booth sporting a personalized "Reserved" placard. We were thirsty, having walked the Chicago Auto Show exhibits, and ordered draft beers from an extensive, but not too dizzying, collection. My pick was Sir Dunkle, a dry, dark beer with a mix of pilsner and pale ale malts. A little toasty, a touch of cookie, and a little dark toffee character. It paired perfectly with my main course, a beautifully prepared Wiener Schnitzel, accompanied by spätzle, creamed spinach, and some marvelously "hoppy" breads. One of the few restaurants in Chicago to sport an enjoyably drinkable cup of coffee, you'll want to have a slice of Apple
Strudel to accompany this. And if that's not enough, you're pampered by waitstaff who are old-school trained in the art of service. Just. go. You won't leave hungry or disappointed.
We had an early, pre-theater meal on a Friday in Lent. Even though they were out of the stuffed sole, there were still plenty of fish and vegetarian options. The waiter asked if we were going to a show, and so he made sure that everything arrived in a timely fashion. The food was great, the wine prices were reasonable, and the service was crisp and friendly.
If you like good food for a good price with a nice warm atmosphere with old world feel this is your place. The German food is a great break from the burger,pizza,pasta world.
One of our favorite restaurants in the city. My wife's favorite meal is the Sauerbraten and gets it with sides of red cabbage and Spätzle noodles. Their rye bread is the best in Chicago. I try the various old world German items and I'm never disappointed. Their bar is fantastic with its choice of brews and had live music. I enjoy the ambiance of an era gone bye.
We had dinner here before going to see “Wait, wait... Don’t tell me”. Dinner was fabulous. Service was great.
I had the triple sausage dinner. The sausage and sauerkraut were excellent. Wanted a German dinner and was not disappointed. Had creamed spinach for a side. It was nothing special. The house beer was excellent. My wife had a vegetarian dish which she thought was very good. Bottom line, if you want a great German meal without traveling to Munich it is a good alternative.
Not what it used to be.
My group had changed from 10 to 5 guests and there was no problem to have a smaller group. The staff was very accommodating. Food was great as well.
We were seated immediately. The house beer options are excellent; service was superb. Food was amazing.
I only have one complaint about the day that i was there and that is. It took way to long to get our order. I cant blame it on the waitress because she was the only one taking orders and delivering them. We were there for 30 mins waiting to order but we saw that there was only one person receiving orders. Everything else was pretty good for the price.
Mary was an excellent server, highly energetic and friendly
