“High End Taste of an American Steak House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

This place is done very nicely; think Ruth's Chris. Menu is primarily steaks from all over the world with a generous offering from the US. The service is good although a bit pretentious. I get the impression the place caters mainly to a business crowd most of the time. Food is well prepared and they have a good bar and extensive wine list. Staff is professional and well versed on all offerings. I would advise reservations, as the front desk gave me the impression they don't like walk-ins. If your in need of a change from German food this is a good choice, although a pricy one.

“International Beef!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Great service, friendly and welcoming on arrival. Exceptional food, served with great detail and imagination. Steaks superbly cooked, wine list extensive (expensive) but worth it. Great to sit outdoors on the terrace (reservation required). A great, relaxing atmosphere. I will visit again.

Excellent filet mignon, wonderful tuna tartare, familiar steakhouse sides including steak fries, scalloped potatoes and the like. Very nice dessert with molten chocolate cake.

“I didn't know the Germans did good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

In general, German restaurants are average. They certainly know how to fk-up a sausage! However... This place is different. I attended on a Tuesday night, which you'd expect to be dead. It really isn't! The restaurant is buzzing with a vast mix of demographic, from the students eating pizza downstairs, to the businessmen eating fillet in the penthouse upstairs.

It's expensive. That's the only reason I'm removing one star. However, the food is just perfect whilst the staff are extremely friendly (and more importantly, knowledgeable in the food and wine). The ambience is relaxing, avoiding the pretentiousness that other central Munich restaurants might promote.

For a satisfying casual bite to eat, grab a table downstairs. For a special occasion with a big budget, reserve one upstairs! But be quick, this place gets busy and attracts a queue even for a basic seat.

“Insulting Language, horrible attitude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

The location is touristy of course; however, they were not welcoming at all. In addition to that, the waiter told us "here is Germany why don't you learn German" in a very arrogant behavior!!! To be frank, the food was quite tasty; although, they forgot to bring us one of our orders. They had a very poor service and we had a lot of issues on account of this fact
