The Zagat Review
“Excellent” European fare draws fans to this Midtown stalwart serving a range of Continental cuisines including Transylvanian specialties and some “wonderful” German options “that you can’t get anywhere else in Houston” ; it may be in a bland strip center, but it’s “quiet” with a “refined ambiance” , though some suggest the staid “decor could be updated.”

Excellent food and service. I went for brunch and was delighted with the food. Being a chilly February day, I had a superb onion soup and then Eggs Benedict with very tasty Mimosas. Chef Shuster takes loving pride in his dishes and their presentation. Maria takes great care of the guests and makes everyone feel welcome. A great experience. Thank you.

Food is awesome! But when you have to put a disclaimer on the sidewalk sign that says "We are here to serve you but please be patient" there is most likely a staffing or leadership issue within the service staff...which there was unfortunately. But the food it's incredible, everything morsel was delicious. The mushroom risotto was the particularly great and deserves an honorable mention. It is by far the best I have ever had this side of the Atlantic, maybe that side as well!

Most of the food is most often of really high quality and quite yummy. Sadly, sometimes it just isn't and one time the Parmesan to go with my dish was literally rotten and had a layer of I don't know what underneath. The service is just too slow. It's a real pity as the chef really knows how to cook. This is the best place in Houston for authentic German food. Prices are quite reasonable.
