“Overpriced bar masquerading as a restaurant”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We took friends to Wurst for a german experience in the upstairs" restaurant". What we got was an overpriced bar with three televisions along the wall and loud music ascending from the other bar downstairs. When will Calgarians hostellers get it that upscale dining does not work with televisions and loud music. We paid over $200 for four people for average tasting food we could have got in any bar - a pile of sausages on a bed of sauerkraut does not justify top prices and the schweineshaxe was tough. The only redeeming feature was the excellent service from our server.

“It's all about the Schnitzel”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

WURST is a really nice restaurant nestled in the Mission District. The venue has a beer hall on the lower floor and restaurant on the upper floor. We came here to eat several dishes. I split the Schnitzel dish with a friend and it was quite filling. Quality sauerkraut. Good ambiance.

“Great food but not for kids”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

We visited the restaurant on a Thursday night without a reservation. We haven't been down to this area for supper for a very long time and my husband was anxious to try this German Restaurant. We were seated promptly by the friendly hostess and were waiting for one more person to join us. Our waitress came over and introduced herself and filled our water glasses but we were not offered a drink from the menu until the third person arrived. Our teenage son (14 years old) was with us and was having a hard time deciding from the limited menu. He ordered the Fondue but when it came, it definitely was not "kid" friendly, more adult fare with lots of bread, parboiled veggies, cured meats and pickles. He was thinking that he should of ordered the Wurst Burger, which in hindsight, would have been a better choice for a teenager. I ordered the Boar Chop which was delicious with the exception of the jelly that accompanied it, it did taste a bit off but I pushed it to the side. The mushroom and creamed spinach was delicious. My husband ordered the Schnitzel Chop and the Spätzle that came with it was mouth watering. The food quality was excellent for all the meals; the fondue was not to the taste of a teenager. Our total bill with tip and tax was around $140.00 with NO alcohol beverages. Add to that the $12. parking for two vehicles and it was a very expensive dinner for three people.

“Amazing Dinner”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

4 of us had the pleasure to dine at WURST before heading to the Bob Seger concert. I had asked for recommendations from their menu and I think we ended up trying ALL of them. The stuffed wings were enormous and full of flavor. Chicken wings, stuffed with sausage meat, wrapped in pretzel dough and tossed in hot sauce, served with a creamy Dijon for dipping. Spicy, hot and filling. Our second appetizer was the schnitzel tacos, again, a wonderful suggestion that we all enjoyed. About this time our phones started going off informing us the concert had been cancelled till next Monday. We were enjoying the ambience and food so much, we didn't really mind. (I absolutely love the trees in the restaurant)! Our main courses came, I had the schnitzel chop, OUTSTANDING. There are not enough good things I can say about this dish. The spatzel is to die for! We passed tasters around the table, the scallops were cooked to perfection, seasoned perfectly, and were moist and delicious. The giant prawns and rabbit were both, mouthwatering and succulent. Our server was extremely attentive without being intrusive and kept our drinks full, table cleared, and all our needs met. I would not hesitate to recommend WURST to anyone looking for above average fare at very decent prices.
