    Amazing service, we were celebrating an anniversary and they brought out one of their desserts and made us feel very special. The vibes and aesthetic of this restaurant is incredible and the ambience of it all it sickening!

    I've been going to Bierhalle since they opened, and enjoying their food via takeout during the pandemic. I noticed on this visit that the food quality was significantly worse than it had been. Our fries were undercooked, the food was under-seasoned, and a seasonal item (pork goulash) was borderline inedible. They were playing loud early 2000s top 40 rock (that's a choice). I will say that our server was kind and attentive. I think this was our last visit to Bierhalle.

    Food was great but wished the portions were larger. Also wished pretzels would be larger - but their beer cheese dip was amazing & pretzels were great texture and salty as expected & wanted. Music was way too loud and as it got later the large crowd mixed w/the loud music made it hard for us to hear each other at our table so we went somewhere else after for more drinks and food where it was quieter. Also, was a bit weird for a German bar to not play any German music. Why not? *scratches head*

    My husband and I had a great night our at Otto's Bierhalle. We started with the pretzels and beer cheese, both of which were delicious. We split a Wien Feast, which included both the pork and halloumi schnitzel, cucumber salad, potato salad, coleslaw, cheesy spaetzle, and the best pickles I've ever had. This could have fed three people with no problem, so we were both stuffed by the end. Everything was super tasty and plentiful. We are already looking forward to coming back!

    Ate here many times before the pandemic, and food was always amazing. We’ve come back twice since the pandemic ended and both times, the food is just not as tasty. They used to have an amazing beer cheese dip for pretzels. Now its like nacho cheese with mustard added. The salad used to contain candied nuts and have an amazing dressing, now it has golden berries- it just doesn’t match the bitter greens. My daughter ordered the hunter schnitzel sandwich, which she used to love. Now it has mushroom aioli, not sliced sautéed shrooms, and was strongly lemony- she was disappointed. The schweinsaxe was still good, and the servers are always great. The noise level was off the charts. I’m not sure if we will come back.

    Great beer selection. The food is good but a little bit pricey. But, the servings are big, many plates can be shared. Add a great variety of craft beers and bottled beers and it is a great place to go

    Another good experience and good food. A small issue from the kitchen with separating food allergy items although requested by the server. Could improve by offering to fix the issue as it was related to food allergies. Let’s hope the next time this attention to detail can be rectified.

    Always a great time coming to Otto's! The food is delicious and quite filling (my personal favourites are the pretzels and the currywurst plate) and there are several drink options, including cocktails and beer flights. Service is always pleasant, the ambience is phenomenal and the location is great. Looking forward to coming back again!

    The server was not quite helpful. The restaurant wasn’t busy when we were there, but waited too much time to just get a “to-go box” even though we asked them multiple times. Not a good experience overall.

    I am in Germany about 6 times per year and I can tell you that the Schweinshaxe itself was as good as anyone I have had in Munich. The platter itself with the eggs was not so German and more a North American brunch thing. The service was friendly and very attentive.
