I recently held a business dinner for 18 guests at Bruckenkeller and it was a huge success.

The building itself is intriguing and charmingly furnished. The food was very good and the service was efficient and warm.

This is a perfect place if you are looking for a private room in a venue that has a lot of personality and history.

Highly recommend.

I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Bruckenkeller in May, 2013 with a large group of university business students and professors. After being intrigued by other Trip Advisor reviews and their own webpage, I contacted Bruckenkeller and was immediately impressed at the ease of communication and planning as Michael and I arranged a set menu and a wonderful evening for my group. Long before I headed to Europe, I felt at ease knowing that this event was arranged.

The restaurant, the food, the staff, the entire evening exceeded my expectations. As another reviewer said, it was interesting to be buzzed inside, but as you enter the building, you feel like you are entering history. As students and I came down the stairs to the cellar, we were welcomed by staff (Thank you, Dominic) and served appetizers as we explored nooks and crannies of the old cellar. When we were ready, we were ushered into the Refektorium where we dined at one large table covered in beautiful white linen and illuminated by beautiful tall candelabras. Our meal...

Cream soup of lobster with fresh cream and sauted
scampi
***
Stewed bavarian mountain beef in red wine sauce,
served with season mushrooms and truffled mashed
potatoes, filed vegetable
***
Cocktail of german strawberries from Bockenheim
with Grand Mariner Mousseline and vanilla ice cream

...was delicious and the service was impeccable. After the meal I had the privilege of visiting with Michael (my correspondent and the chef!) and his son Dominic (who paid attention to every detail of the evening). Both were so delightful. Dominic gave me a tour of the rest of the restaurant, which I understand is solely used for special events now. There was a beautiful room that would be lovely for a wedding reception or large party, and smaller, more intimate spaces for any sized group.

If you are planning a special dinner or event in Frankfurt, I encourage you to consider Bruckenkeller. I hope to return to Frankfurt someday, just to plan an event there again!

The location of this restaurant is on a street which does not seem like much. Guests need to use the bell if they arrive early (before 17 hrs). The journey then changing into what seems like a different period in history complete with cobble stones, iron gate and then of course the cellar downstairs. The lighting is dimmed which is suitable for an evening event with some glamour.
The food is good. Some people thought the portions were rather small. The selection of wine was good. The welcome drink "prince of wales" was a concoction of champagne and cognac and other items. It was very good. I was not impressed with the service. We had a set menu (a large group) and the waiter pouring the wine did not know what the menu was! Additionally, I had to ask three times for a beer (for my colleague). They just kept forgetting.
The owner seems professional and correct though.
