My wife and I booked a table here to celebrate her birthday. We chose it because it was ranked as the no.1 restaurant in Frankfurt. Having been there, we can see why. The restaurant is small, so they were not being pretentious when they said that a Saturday night booking required two weeks' notice. The dining area is the size of two rooms of a house. The combination of this and the tasteful modern decor gives an intimate atmosphere which compliments the high-quality and friendly service very well. The food was wonderful. We ate the set menu of the day, without knowing what was on it, and Weinsinn did not disappoint. We asked them to select a wine for us and the German Chardonnay they offered was sumptuous. The meal was expensive, but it was clear where the money was going in terms of quality of experience.

On a recent flight we decided to overnight in Frankfurt to break up the trip a bit as well as to have an opportunity for dinner in downtown Frankfurt. We selected Weinsinn based on positive reviews, an interesting menu, ease of making reservations online and finally ease of access from our hotel at the airport (S8 or S9 from the airport to Hauptwache, U1 U2 or U3 to Holzhausenstraße, short walk to restaurant). And we were very glad we did!

The meal was pretty much perfect in every aspect. The room was pleasant and not too formal with a comfy residential feel. The table top was stylish. The service was very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Food runners and bussers performed their jobs flawlessly and everyone seemed to take pride in what was being put on the table. The food was flavorful with every component of every dish serving a purpose, perfectly prepared, simply yet beautifully presented without being frou-frou or architectural merely for effect. Excellent selection of wines (especially German and Austrian) available by the glass with spot-on pairing advice from the server.

While certainly not inexpensive, neither were the prices stratospheric to the point of causing overly inflated expectations or angst whether the meal will justify the cost. Well done all around by a small group of people who clearly know and love what they are doing. I may overnight at FRA again just to visit Weinsinn.

We went here for my husband birthday and were so glad that we chose this restraurant!

The atmosphere is great, more relaxed yet still classy and modern. The service was also great, they were very helpful without being too intrusive.

The food, was simply amazing, creative and beautifully presented! We chose the 4course (surprise) menu and enjoyed each course and guessing the wonderful flavours in each bite. They were also a bit flexible with the menu, so if there was something that we didnt like, it wasnt included in our dish. The reason i didnt say it was excellent, is because somehow I felt that there was something lacking in the main dish (deer). It was great and cooked to perfection, but compared to the other courses, I thought it wasnt as creative with flavours. My husband on the other hand really enjoyed his main, which was the duck.

They have quite a wine list as well. It took us a couple of tries, but we were able to find one that we really enjoyed.

OVerall, we left feeling full, satisfied and relaxed. Would recommend this place for a special occasion!

Last minute call for two was accommodated by two seats at the bar. Little did we realize how fantastic the experience would be that followed. Great service, fun conversation, near perfect wine pairings (not sure how they could have been better) and a "wow" food experience. Will definitely return whenever in Frankfurt. Highly recommend.

We showed up one evening without a reservation and were lucky to get a nice outside table. We had their four course tasting menu with excellent wine pairings from local wineries. Everything was exceptional: food presentation, flavours, service. It is very much worth a visit. I found out after our visit that it is now a one star Michelin restaurant.
