The first time here it was crowded and the staff seemed unorganized. This time the service was spot on (if not overly welcoming) and the food was excellent. I really like pate and the made onsite chicken liver pate was outstanding! I would go back again just for that. My wife had a traditional German dish and said it was authentic and very tasty. Portions are good and they have a decent wine selection. Reservations are a good idea or go on an off night (like we did the 2nd time).
