Family visit to NYC enjoyed 5 different German beer types and all tasted great - no complaints for those of us lucky to have lived there. 3 sizes too so you can pace yourself. Food prices a little high but portions nice. Four of us split a wurst platter for two with very good sides - the staff really nice.... More

Haven't been to a German restaurant in years, and this one has been around for decades, The food was fantastic -- all of it, and we tried lots of stuff. The sauerbraten was amazing, as was the herring appetizer. The potato pancakes were special, as were the incredible cakes. The new subway is across the street. We will go back... More

The 5 of us came here for lunch the day before Christmas Eve. The restaurant was half full and there were a total of 4 staff persons on deck: bartender, hostess, a waiter and a waitress. Shocking. We were seated right away, but it took forever for anyone to service us and even longer for the food to come. I... More

An amazing night of food and drink. Bar service while we were waiting for our table really primed the pump (full of schnapps), then we dove into fantastic food and drink, leaving full, fat, and happy. Awesome!

There were two of us eating and although it wasn't crowded it took a long time to get anyone to pay attention to us. We ordered drinks and as soon as the waiter put them down we were asked if we were ready to order. No bread was offered so I had to ask for it. Unfortunately, the bread basket... More

As a child my family spent Christmas with my Austrian grandmother. Grandma is gone now, but I still feel the need to have a German style feast for Christmas. The Heidelberg delivered this beautifully. With typical German charm my boyfriend and I indulged in a liter of Berliner Weisse and fried camambert cheese. He had the sausage platter and I... More

In NYC for a weekend of Christmas holiday excitement, we stopped in here for lunch. It was so cute and cosy. I felt I was in Austria or Bavaria. We started right off with nice warm glühwein, delicious and just as I remember from the Christmas Markt in Salzburg. Friend had sauerbraten that she found tasty. I had a potato... More

I was thrilled they had Dinkelacker on tap, as it is my favorite beer. We enjoyed the potato pancakes, sausage platter and sauerbraten. The staff is friendly and helpful. Po

Great German restaurant. Authentic atmosphere and food. Loved the decor, grand pictures of Heidelberg that are worn and aged. Has the long wooden benches but also has other seating options. There was a lovely woman working there who my husband was able to converse in German with and we enjoyed talking with her. Would recommend to anyone who loves German... More

Am not fond of German food but this place made me change my mind. Food was so good we wanted to order delivery the next day.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
