The restaurant itself was fantastic—homey decor, a broad menu that went well beyond cliched German Oktoberfest fare, good service, and the food was great. The only downside was that it took me 30 minutes to find a parking spot on a Friday night. I called...More

Pretty "authentic" German restaurant and biergarten in downtown San Jose. Pleasant waitstaff, and fairly good service considering the small kitchen in a large restaurant. Menu not all that extensive. Noisy place. Don't plan on any reasonable conversation.

Overpriced, ok German food. Hits the spot if you have not had German in months/years. If you are looking for what you would normally get with a German meal, you will be dissapointed with the price.

The food and atmosphere are very German. I was very impressed and surprised at the quality and tastiness. The owner of the restaurant served us and was extremely friendly. They had a very lively lunch crowd with lots of business meetings taking place. Would highly...More
