As great as ever. New early spring menu wonderful. Also very much like the new prix fix format. Wallse remains consistently one of the best restaurants in nyc .
Wallse was everything we had hoped it would be. From the moment we entered until we walked out the door, we couldn't have been more pleased. It was a long and lovely evening.
My wife and I had not been to an Austrian restaurant before so we went to Wallse with another couple on a recent Saturday night. We enjoyed everything about it. The food was a good mix of some traditional items such as wiener schnitzel and other items that had a modern spin. Other nice dishes were the pea soup, white asparagus with smoked brook trout, and a short rib entree. The wine list was excellent. Many Austrian Gruner Veltliners and Rieslings as well as a large number of reds such as Blaufränkisch and Pinot Noir. We had a great sacher torte for dessert and the four of us shared a half bottle of a sweet Gruner Veltiner.
The service was excellent - attentive but not overly so. They had very good timing on serving the plates and clearing the table, i.e. all four setting were done at the same time. That is something increasingly rare in New York.
The restaurant recently moved away from a la carte. They have the menu divided into four sections (cold appetizers, hot appetizers, entrees and dessert) and there are various combinations of 2, 3, or 4 items.
We love this understated gem of a West Village Austrian restaurant. Everyone had the asparagus ragout. The artichokes arrived in a deep green broth, very fragrant. The lobster and spaetzle was well balanced and the veal wiener schnitzel was thin, perfectly fried, moist and tender. We had the entire meal with a delicious sparkling gruener veltliner selected for us by the sommelier. Service was unhurried and we stayed until closing, enjoying the meal's afterglow and conversation.
Everything was great. Austrian cuisine was fab and so many affordable native wines by the bottle.
Food was amazing. Went with family- this was the first time we’ve seen each other since a family trip to Austria. This brought us right back! Albeit with a slightly New York take on traditional Austrian cuisine.
Our server was new and seemed nervous but he did a fantastic job! Tell him to keep up the good work.
The lobster with spaetzle is the stuff dreams are made of. And the desserts were just as tasty as their European counterparts
Hadn't been here in years because we live up the Hudson now, but it seemed like the perfect place to go after visiting the Whitney. Spectacular meal. My mother was Viennese so I have some background and standards to apply in making the judgment that the food is simply out of this world. Wonderful oysters, though for a five dollar supplement maybe there should have been 4 or 5 of these small precious jewels; but they were perfect. Chestnut soup was exquisite, and the lobster poached in butter the best I've had anywhere. Dessert --the Salzburg nockerl, a large fluff of meringue and pastry cream easily big enough for three (it looks like the Pitons plus one)--would have had Mom cheering and saying "go ahead, it's all air." The wine list has reasonable Austrian, Alsatian and German choices, plus some off the charts if you're so inclined. A delightful, gemutlichkeit evening.
Always a treat! Four people selected different meals and each one was just fantastic. We love and appreciate an excellent meal; however, a bit exhausted so just want to get a review because this place remains special for its consistency and attention to detail for the last decade+ we've been visiting.
Very good service but for a michelin star restaurant, would expect the food to be more on the extraordinary side, rather than just good.
We love all the KG venues (Sabarsky, Blaue Ganz). The Schnabel artwork here a plus, but we loved it as well with previous paintings. The food is authentically Viennese and scrumptious.
We have been meaning to eat here for years and finally dined at Wallse recently. What we were waiting for! The food was wonderful, specifically the entrees Crispy Mediterranean Sea Bass and the Butter Cooked Maine Lobster, the ambience was warm and the waitstaff was genuinely interested in our dining experience. BTW, don't pass on the Salzburger Nockerl for dessert, you will not be disappointed. The artwork was very cool to look at and the music was great which added to the positive vibe. We will back here soon.
Mohammed made our experience at Wallse perfect. We love the food, the ambience, everything!
I remember Wallse from the time it opened. It was so perfect! This was not the original that I know, though. First off, we were sat late, and with no apology and no recognition for their error. While I am not one who desires special treatment, the money you spend at this restaurant should translate into how they treat you before you even sit down. Second, this was a birthday event, and even though I specifically noted that detail in my reservation and when I confirmed, they still did nothing to make this event even semi-special for us. That, again, is not the Wallse I know. I am a teacher and do not make enough to eat out like this often. It is pretty clear to me that a restaurant such as this only caters to those that see it as nothing special. That is supremely annoying to me. And lastly, they seriously need to higher a bartender that possesses the requisite skills to make a simple martini.
We recently dined at Wallsé and had pleasant evening. The room is lovely and service top notch. The sommelier in particular was extremely personable, knowledgable and helpful with a terrific Austrian wine list. We talked about wonderful Gemischter Satz, the quirky delicious mix Austrian whites. He helped us chose a lovely reisling from Austria. Our food for the most part was delicious except that the Wiener Schintzel was not crispy nor as tasty as we would have expected. The sides of pickles and potatoes were fantastic as was our started salads. Overall the experience was great but schintzel needs some work.
Phenomenal experience. The food was great and inventive, the wine list extraordinary (focused on interesting Austrian wines!), and the service was some of the best we've experienced in the city.
Perfect evening. Food, service, ambience and my date were all beautiful. The restaurant isn't really responsible for the last one but it did everything else perfectly.
We had reservations and were seated right away. I love that the ambience was nice and quiet. You can actually have a conversation! So unusual these days. The food was plated beautifully. The food was unusual in that there are not many Austrian restaurants. One small fault I found is that the waiter may want to pass out the entree menus before asking us which wine we would like.
My husband and I are both foodies and we indulge quality meals. The food was outstanding, prepared to perfection and beautifully presented. Portion sizes were perfect for us (not too large, not too small - just right- so we could enjoy several courses). The staff did not rush us, even though we lingered a bit (we met up with old friends and had a lot to catch upon). Service was very good, but not overly intrusive. Wallse exceeded our expectations and we plan to go back.
Wonderful meal. Everything well prepared. House Pate wonderful. Weiner schnitzel not to be missed. Austrian desserts and cheese excellent
One of our favorite restaurants, never disappoints. Excellent service, thanks Branden.
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. A wonderful experience for us.
Dinner was delicious as always especially the artichoke appetizer which was new and very nice. And I always have the Viener schnitzel because it is the best in New York. Plus the location in the West Village is wonderfully convenient and it’s always good to see Kurt.
Service and food were both excellent. I read the review in the NYTimes, and made the reservation for a birthday celebration for my boyfriend. We have vacationed in Vienna twice and had excellent Wiener schnitzel which was also fabulous at Wallse. Great menu, wines and service. I highly recommend it.
Food good. Best were spaezle appetizer and duck entre.
Friendly place but service quite slow. Struck up a fun conversation with the neighborhood diners at the table next to ours.
This is one of the best restaurants that we have eaten at in years. Austrian cuisine. Very good, very unique.
The best restaurant I visited in New York. No one should miss this special atmosphere during a stay in New York. The food is definetly worth its price.
Lovely and thoughtful as always
great food, attentive, knowledgeable staff.... go for it!
Has interesting classic Austrian choices but I make a better viener schnitzel at home. The wines were too acidic for my palate.
I have been a patron there for a while, mainly for business entertaining. I made reservations for December 25th that required a deposit for obvious reasons. No one mentioned that it is only a pre fixed menu. Even on open table (and I have a screen shot of it) it did not show the fact that only pre fixed is available. When I called the restaurant and spoke to the manager I was told that this is the rule and my Amex was charged $149.99 ( Strange). Well, now they lost me as a customer and in the long run they lost thousands of dollars. This will show you the great attitude and the customer service they provide to a loyal guest.
Great special Christmas menu
Excellent food and service. Quiet vibe in a attractive setting.
Food was outstanding but we felt a bit rushed even though there were empty tables Also, the wine list is crazy expensive
Lovely ambiance, food OK, nothing great, pretentious, wait staff needs training
We recently visited Wallsé on a very cold Winter evening. We enjoyed outstanding fare and service in a charming dining room, enhanced by crisp linen, lovely flowers, and Julien Schnabel art. Chef Gutenbrunner is both gifted and correct in his preparation, as well as a warm host.
Wallse is becoming one of our favorite dining spots in NYC. The food is creative and delicious. The service is professional, yet still friendly. And the ambiance is elegant, yet still casual. We are also getting familiar with Austrian wines, which are a new experience for us. Lovely spot.
The menu was very interesting and what I ordered superb ... all at prices that seemed reasonable from a Washington, DC perspective. The plates were well presented, the portions just fine, and the food superb. One could not hope for a more perfect schnitzel (exclamation point)
Excellent service and menu options. The menu selections were very creative from traditional Austrian to exceptional interpretations of European and American favorites. The wine list is limited, but with many good selections
Perfectly lovely from beginning to end! Service was professional but friendly and helpful. Food was truly special--modernistic takes on classic Eastern European dishes. Can't wait to return. Thanks to everyone.
Excellent food, attentive service, all around very nice experience. Not inexpensive, but worth it.
