Wonderful ambiance in the rathskeller of an old 18th century historic building - excellent menu - specializes in beef but a very robust menu for any occasion or taste - delightful service - sides are amazing. Wine list is very good and very reasonable.

Food quality is definitely good. However they need to learn how to treat customer (group of 6) with well advanced reservations. In summary, they handled our reservations and initial seating flat out WRONG. After waiting for 10 minutes, they took us to a different building...More
