Orginally we were going to stop for drinks, see the decor and have dinner elsewhere, but decided that if we could get reservations we would give it a try. We were able to get a early time slot for this past Sat.(4:30). Forget about sitting at the bar, as it was packed three deep at the time we arrived. I don't think anyone else would have fit as this place is pretty small with tight seating. Anyway we were seated shortly after we arrived. The Christmas holiday decor is quite extraordinary and festive. I've never seen anything like it at Christmas time in a restaurant. Now for the food. I enjoyed it. It was not a great meal, but good and the portions were large. We left there very full. The German beers are excellent. We had one appitizer, the potatoe pancakes and they were excellent. Two entree's, I had the saurbraten with red cabbage which I enjoyed and have not had in quite a few years so it was hard for me to compare. Again a large portion. My wife had a pork loin dish which was just ok, nothing special. Two large draft German beers, a coke and one shared dessert. Total without tip came to $97. 00. Our server was very nice and helpful. One other thing, It was very warm in the restaurant, probably from the 75,000 lights hanging off the ceiling and walls. I had to take my sweater off. Yes , it may be pricy for the food but you're also paying for the festive holiday decorations.It's a restaurant that maybe you go to once to see what it is about, so you can say you were there. It certainly will put you in the holiday mood. I'm glad we went.
