Yes. It’s expensive. But it is worth it. Two others and I went together. We each got something, then shared with each other. Will be going back!

Highly advise when visiting Fredericksburg that you make reservations in advance to get into Otto's. The double cut pork chop was done to perfection. You will not be disappointed :-)

What gem of a resturant. Our server Heather, was knowledgeable on the entire menu, to include the local brews. She made some excellent recommendations. We started off with foie gras with bacon jam and quail egg. For entrees we had, the halibut, pork chops, gnocchi,...More

My boyfriend proposed to me here, and they went out of their way to make it really special for us. The food and drinks were delightful in both appearance and taste (the gnocchi was delicious), and the service was prompt and attentive without being overbearing....More

The food and service were good. Not all that many choices on the menu, however, and the least expensive was about $20. The bread was also extra. But the waiter was very nice and helpful and the atmosphere was nice, if you like Modern. Not...More

If you are looking for authentic German food this should not be your first choice. The menu is haut cuisine with prices to match. $6.00 if you want bread at your table.

Wow, great cocktails before dinner. Great friendly staff, great service. This restaurant knows how to treat guests. The type of place where you make friends. We will always return to Ottos

I expect the bratwurst to be great at a German restaurant. It wasn't the case at Otto's. This was a tasteless, the most tasteless bratwurst I ever had in my life. They didn't even ask if the food was good. When I left more than...More

No and that's a problem as it's so small. Difficult table on weekends. But plenty of room next door at their ice house. We give them our cell number, go next door to the ice house, order a wine and chill. Works for us. It's... More

I am certain they do, although their menu does vary from week to week. They always have meat and vegetable options. Always fresh and local ingredients. I am sure the chef can accommodate gluten free options, as it is so... More
