We had a lovely evening. The food was very good, as well as the matching wines. Good value for money. We called last minute to try a booking for the same evening. They were fully booked from 8pm onwards, but were able to accommodate us for a early dinner from 6:30-8, which worked out just fine.

We sat at the bar and we're delighted with a good service. Interested in white whines we were offered to taste three options until we chose the one we wanted. Had a small plate of canapés (5) that were enjoyable. Price is expensive but we enjoyed it.

Gorgeous restaurant attached to hotel excelsior. Lovely staff and tasty & delightful food we booked by going there during the afternoon. Li Ucky we did as it was fully booked out. Many Germans eating here at this fine boutique wine restaurant. Wine prices are high but worth it

A wonderful Bavarian setting greets you when entering this lovely small restaurant. The food is always superb and the kitchen is open and willing to improvise with what they got at hand! And the wine choices, just sublime! Drank a bottle of Cote du Rhone 2006 Vinsobres von Perrin at €35 with our wonderful pasta dishes no cheese! Delightful!

This place is something special. The wine list is awesome. And our server went above and beyond to accommodate us. The food was the icing on the cake of our fabulous experience. When I'm back in Munich, I will absolutely be coming back here. You will never be disappointed.

Very attentive service from knowledgeable and friendly staff. Wine list is enormous! We chose a Spatburgunder for about €60.00 a bottle. A little extravagant, but quality was tremendous. Food was excellent too. Would definitely visit again!

I had lamb with chick peas and mint yoghurt. Lamb cooked perfectly but the remainder was bland and unseasoned though looked fab on the plate. Trio of creme brûlée interesting but could have had more flavour distinction between them too. Slow cooked beef again not seasoned well and gravy bland but good otherwise. Cheese board fab

I guess I was expecting to be amazed as it's rated so highly, but I've eaten in better and the menu was quite limited. It's a nice meal but not a memorable one, sorry!

Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
