Just generally wondering what people's impressions have been after dining at KG's Wallse restaurant?

    Beautiful place, very romantic and intimate...food is good, but not a place that I'm rushing back to.

      I've always enjoyed the food there, though I've not been back since sometime last winter, I think, I've been 5-6 times. I think they do nice things with lobster, I love the spatzle w/ rabbit, and have had well prepared and interesting fish dishes. Great sommelier and I enjoy exploring the Austrian wine selections. Service has ranged from somewhat unattentive to very professional. Excellent elderflower (elderberry?) cocktail. It can be a bit noisy. It's not a place I think of going when it is warm out even though, in fact, the food is not heavy despite having an Austrian bent.

        I've corrected the address (I think) -

          I understand from another thread that Aldo and various others have left - so things may have changed dramatically.

          Haven't gone in a bit, but I've always enjoyed doing Sunday brunch there. Never terribly busy, simple and good food, good service... Very civilized atmosphere. Good bread, too.

            I've been there a number of times, and have always enjoyed it. I've taken a few cooking demo classes with KG and he's wonderfully entertaining. The food is always delicious. Wallse has a wonderful sommelier, Aldo--he always makes great selections.
