    The ahi tuna tartar was delicious - as was the jaeger schnitzel which was nice and crispy. The food was really fresh and well presented in a non pretentious atmosphere. Our waiter Ray had great suggestions on the food and drinks. Everyone in the restaurant looked to be having fun. The only negative for me was the tables for 2 are long so we had a hard time hearing each other. We were In the front room which was a bit noisy. We would usually prefer to sit corner to corner but we would have crowded our neighbors to move a chair.

    This wonderful restaurant never disappoints. I settled on two daily specials, a salad of cold sliced beets, goat cheese, arugula and pistachios, with a simple dressing--what's not to like? For the main, pan-seared Lake Superior Whitefish, in a cream sauce with shrimp, mushrooms, and tiny new potatoes. Simply delicious! This fish was always the mainstay of "extra fare" streamliners, like the Empire State and the Super Chief, but, like them, not much seen on the menu now. The service was attentive but not intrusive, as always. Raspberry bread pudding with vanilla ice cream for desert.

    This reservation was our first time after wanting to go for months! Overall it was a great experience; food, service and ambiance were all 5 stars! We had two special appetizers, seafood cocktail (amazing) and the prosciutto arugula salad. For our entrees we enjoyed the Lemond & Capers schnitzel and the Jager Schnitzel, both with veal and were delicious! Highly recommend, a true little hidden gem in Palm Springs.

    Great for tourists. This use to be a great place for schnitzel. But it’s gone down since COVID. This was my third and last try. There are too many better choices in town at this price range. Hint: the food is delivered within minutes of ordering. So the quality has become very similar to fast food

    What an excellent dinner we had. Starters included the tuna tartare dish, cold corn soup w/crab meat and shrimp cocktail. Main course included the perfectly seared scallops, filet, a traditional and a hunter's veal schnitzel. The best anywhere outside of Vienna! Service was perfect, Barry was knowledgable and attentive -- couldn't have asked for a more lovely experience. Highly recommend.
