We have dined at the Black Forest several times in the past few years. As other reviewers have stated, the menu and decor is Bavarian. The theme is carried into the wait staff's uniforms (costumes) which, to me, are over the top corny. The food was quite good, not excellent, but solid. The schnitzel was nicely cooked without being heavy... More

Wasn't overly impressed with our service and food was just alright to be honest I found being charged $5.75 for gravey ridiculous especially as there was no sauce with the steak.

The atmosphere is early 20th century Bavarian while the menu is centered on traditional schnitzels cooked to perfection and spaetzle dumplings that will fuel your runs down the ski hill. Service is top notch too; with attentive staff ready to take your picture in one of the distinctive alcoves; all featuring the Black Forest esthetic. I chose the schnitzel Oscar... More

Schnitzel is to die for. So is the purple cabbage and princess potatoes....the desserts are also delectable. But my fave is the chicken schnitzel anyway

However, 30 minutes later our appetizers of soup and caesar salad arrived. 35 minutes after we finished the appetizers our mains arrived. Food was good although not as warm I... More
