Everything was great. Austrian cuisine was fab and so many affordable native wines by the bottle.

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.

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.

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.
