Slightly formal, but very good food. A bit on the expensive side, but a decent value for the quality, service and setting.

Very large spacious restaurant with a large comprehensive bar. The restaurant is a bit overwhelming if you are one of only a few guests - but of course the up side is that you get better service. 10 minutes after we arrived, a private party of about 50 guests arrived and the atmosphere changed and became a lot more buzzy. The head waiter who greeted us at the start had his attention diverted and we thereafter were served by a variety of different staff. It's a restaurant that can cope with large numbers, but the down side is that service does suffer. The food and wine was very good and the staff were warm and friendly - pick a time when it's perhaps no more than 50% full and it'll probably be to your benefit.

Our experience at Gendarmerie restaurant was excellent right from the beginning. From making the reservation with a very friendly person to a wonderful dinner experience. Our waiter was excellent. The preparation and presentation of the food was both beautiful and delicious. The Weiner schnitzel was magnificent and my wife's chicken dish was exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant for a couple who would like to spend a very special evening in a very elegant atmosphere.

We visited this restaurant in August and the food, service and atmosphere was excellent, so on returning to Berlin at the end of November we booked a table for a Friday night. What a difference a few months make, the restaurant was a complete opposite of our first experience. We arrived 10mins early but was seated at our table, unfortunately this was the end of the service we expected. A young waiter arrived at our table after a short wait and gave us the menu's to browse over, he did not give us a wine menu and we had to ask a passing waiter for one. After around 15mins there was no sign of our waiter so we got the attention of the head waiter to enquire about ordering our food. Shortly after this our waiter reappeared and took our starter and mains order, I also ordered a bottle or local German wine. The starter arrived but there was no sign of our wine, I asked the waiter about this and he informed me they had not got our selection in stock but did not offer an alternative. I choose another wine, a German rose while eating our starter, after finishing the starter there was still no sign of the wine so again I asked a passing waiter about this and pointed our waiter out to him so that he could follow this up. After we were half way though our main meal a bottle of Italian white was presented out our table which I declined. We discussed our issues with the waiter about the poor service but all he could say that he was busy, there were no issues with the language has the waiter spoke excellent English. For a top end restaurant this is not good enough. Will definitely not be visiting this restaurant again, puts a black mark on a beautiful City

The restaurant is a great spot for a quiet night out. The food is great, with a nice line up of European continental cuisine.

The menu says that the shrimp scamp is "divine," and they weren't lying!

The space itself is impressive - there is a gorgeous wooden painting that I've been told is the largest of its kind in Europe. There is also a smoking lounge/bar next door that is good for drinks or cigars after dinner.
