Sat at the bar and had lovely cocktails, appetizers and desserts after a talk at BAM. It's a fantastic atmosphere and the food is delicious. Highly recommend.

“Das es gut.”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Surprisingly, we were seated right away. (Friday night, I expected a
wait for a table.) Server was professional and very friendly and
explained some of the German fare offered. At his suggestion,
I had the soup du jour...truly yummy. We then had weiner schnitzel, German potato salad, and cucumber salad. Bread
and butter. A large selection of beers, both foreign and domestic. I had Berliner Weisse; hubby had his Becks.
A very nice dinner.

“Not German enough”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Had a quick dinner before a show at BAM. Veal Weiner Schnitzel was a bit dry. The warm German potato salad (the reason I ordered what I did) was cold. Apple strudel dessert was excellent. Service was good. Table bread was excellent. Why afre restaurants so chintzy when it comes to putting butter on the table.

“Double-check your bill -- repeated overcharges!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The atmosphere is charming, the location is excellent -- but watch out for bad service and billing irregularities at this Brooklyn bar and restaurant. On two consecutive visits, the wait for everything from menus to the check was long. And both times Berlyn charged $7 for beers that were listed on the menu as $6.

“Cozy place, friendly service, yummy food”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

We went with friends who use Berlyn as their neighborhood regular dependable place for dinner. It was warm, welcoming and delicious. Starters included celery root soup, flamkucken (bacon, onions and cheese on paper thin crust) and a swell beet salad. Glasses of red wine for 2 and a wonderfully bitter Dogfish Head IPA for the other 2 made us very happy. Dinner was the superbly crispy schnitzel with potato/apple salad and pickeled cucumbers. Dessert of bread pudding was yummy. Things got crowded when BAM let out and it was very jolly to have all those happy eaters enjoying themselves around us. Lots of interesting looking people to see made for a lively scene.
Easy to see why our friends as regulars, this place is a keeper.
