It is one of our regular dining place whenever we come to the area. We enjoyed their food in the past and even now. They are very accommodating with slight change of menu that is different from what is on. I wanted to Calamari dinner and it was not on the menu. The restaurant made it as a dinner plate for me. We basically ordered appetizers only this time because we had big lunch. I have seen the staff having tough times with some rather unreasonable customers before but they had never, not even once, made it a scene and maintained professionalism. Bravo!

Our food was good, the ambiance was good. My husband and I are both earthing ketogenic so we were careful with our orders. When dinner came we bit into the purple cabbage and it tasted sweet. When I asked to waiter if there was sugar in the cabbage he replied yes. I told him I couldn't eat sugar. He just said, "Oh." And walked away. I was really disappointed in that; both the sugar and the waiter not really addressing it.

Delicious, fresh, schnitzel. Prompt friendly service. We really enjoyed our evening. Our bill for dinner for two, with wine came to just over $100.

While the restaurant has had a change in ownership in recent years the new owners have maintained the excellent food an service that has kept us going back time and again for many years and still does.

Great meal, good prices, seems fairly true to real German food. They didn't actually log our Open Table reservation, but they accommodated us just fine even on a fairly busy Saturday evening.

Well located in Harrison Hot Springs. Service was excellent and the food was very good.
Schnitzels are the specialty and there are good choices.
We will be returning here soon.

We went on a busy night. We had an overwhelmed waitress. Not that great German food, we have had better. Not a lot of flavor to the dishes. It was a supposed to be a nice night with good food. We left disappointed.

This was a good place - glad we went. There is a lot of meat, so it's a bit heavy if you aren't paying attention. Good beer because the Krombacher dark to start and the pilsner with schnitzel. We both agreed the fare would be better in the winter vs the summer, but we'd definitely go back next time in Harrison for a couple of nights.

We always eat here when we come to Harrison. This time my husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. There were 10 of us, we all ordered something different and all enjoyed our meals.

It is great! Everything tastes homemade and like the chef took pride in sharing their culture with the guests. Beer we had with the meal was amazing. Great old fashioned restaurant.

I love this place and will keep coming back. But our waitress was not nice, sort of slammed dishes down, reached across people to set stuff down. Just was very disappointing because service in the past has been very pleasant.

The bratwurst and schnitzel dishes were flavorful and abundant. Escargot, excellent and was the children's menu. Female server was friendly and knowledgeable. Cocktails on the high side, but was expected for where the restaurant was located. My family will definitely dine again and we would recommend this establishment to others.

We enjoyed a Birthday dinner here last Sat. night. Our meal choices were varied, bratwurst, schnitzel and pork hocks. All the food was excellent. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The only complainet we have is there was also a very large party there and it was very noisy. I would definately recommend the Black Forest to others.
