The food served here is German, and its very authentic. Just like Oma used to make! The servers are friendly as well. The only thing I would change, is the venue itself. Renovations are needed!

If you're craving Schniztel this is the place to go. Very large portions, and several different styles , so lots to chose from. The atmosphere is bright and the staff are friendly.

Friendly and helpful service for my family. The food came in large portions and was delicious. It's not a big restaurant so it can get pretty full/

The Black Forest in has been around for years, why, because the food is just as good now as when Fred and Rosa took over ownership. Same menu, same lovely flavours. I grew up on there food and still enjoy my visits

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.

You are exactly correct. Many people will try to say a place is authentic but have no clue what that actually means. Their standard is slop and anything slightly better is great.
