It’s an ok place . The schnitzel was nice enough as was the Black Forest cake , but the Caesar salad for $8.95 was seriously overpriced for a very small mediocre salad -. It was not worth more than about $4.95

Introduced two of my friends to your restaurant and German food. They felt right at home when they entered. Loved the homey décor. Felt like they could be somewhere in Germany.
As we have had our birthdays we have sampled food from each of our ethnic backgrounds. Thank you for making the evening a great success. :)

I have been to this restaurant in the past and brought along a friend who had never been there. We booked for after a play at Queens Park on a Sunday. She loved it also and we have plans to return. I booked it because I did have a coupon and it made it affordable for us.

Traditional German menu with always delicious weinerschnitzl and accompaniments. Wine by the glass menu needs updating as selections are unappealing , old-fashioned and low quality. Service is always excellent by accommodating and happy staff.

The Old Bavaria Haus is New West's hidden gem. It's easy to overlook because it's been around forever but it is a worthwhile visit. Service is professional yet casual and friendly. The menu is extensive but you can't go wrong with any of the Schnitzel choice, even the vegetation versions.

Based on an in-house vegetarian patty with the traditional choice of toppings it is rich and satisfying. The potatoes, veggies and cabbage with the entrees are fresh, properly cooked and served at the right temperature.

We were too full for dessert but they offer about 8 varied items but will try and make room for them next time. The rooms are packed in fairly tight and even on a week night the place can get full during dinner time. Don't expect privacy or a quiet conversation but for an enjoyable, casual dinner that will fill you up it's worth a try.

We were in Germany last year and had authentic German Schnitzel that was to die for.
The Old Bavaria Haus was just exactly the same. Tender, flavorful.
Excellent schnitzel, the portions were very big and the veggies and potatoes were also done perfectly.
Awesome staff.
The food was spectacular. Very fresh with a great variety!

Brought my husband and friends who have never had German cuisine before. Thoroughly enjoyed the schnitzel meal.

years ago when the German fellow owned it you got lots of gravy on your schnitzel, the other night you could barely see it... a little more would be better
Plus it was cold in the restaurant most people had their coats on

Our waiter was very over busy perhaps because he was on his own. A young chap delivered bread but offered no other help. The waiter was great but too rushed. It was Valentine’s Day though so we get it. The food was great. We will be back for regular date nights. We have to try all the schnitzels.

The food here was good as usual. The crazy lady at the front table ruined the experience for the other 4 tables in the room. A staff member was having a private celebration in the other room. Would have been a better experience if our table was in the other room. We work in the hospitality field, so would notice more then most. But all the other tables commented out loud how disruptive the crazy lady was. We were the voluntary sounding block (we gave the waitress permission to vent)

Our reservation was at 19h30, we had to wait until 19h50 before someone realized that few people were waiting in the entrance. At 20h00 our table still wasn't ready... We had to wait another 10 min to get the menus and when we mentioned the wait to the host (who seemed to be the person in charge that night) he reluctantly offered us a beer. I'm not sure if they were short staff but the service was poor. We were hoping to find a new spot for German comfort food but just for the service, we won't go back.

Food was really delicious. Came out nice and hot which is awesome. But took quite a long time to get the food. I often don't notice if the wait for food is long, but I noticed this time as it was a particularly long wait time. Even so, I would totally recommend this place.

The house is very quaint and the restaurant has some very delicious Bavarian cuisine. I recommend the combo platter which includes schnitzel, beef rouladen, bratwurst, and spätzle.

Please note that this location is busy most days of the week but they do have quite a few tables. However, if you desire a more quiet time for dinner, I recommend coming after 7:30 pm.
Enjoy :)
