I have been to Knoblauch twice, once with my husband, once with a visiting client. First, the food is delicious, much more French than German. The menu is quite large with typically several fish items. It is handwritten so can be hard to read unless your German and food preparation is excellent. As a native English speaker, I print it...

I have visited this restaurant many times during last 10 years. Same quality, same friendly atmosphere, same level- what to wish else? They serve french cuisine ( Alsace) accompanied by the good vine selection. The menu is not big, hand written, but good, the dishes are tasty, simple, but nice. This is not a "haute cuisine" restaurant , definitely not,... More

This small establishment is tucked away in Frankfurt's Westend. The atmosphere is intimate and very friendly. There is a regular menu with daily specials on a blackboard. The wine list is predominantly French with a lot of good wine from Alsace. The food is always made from top-quality ingredients and is freshly prepared. Service is discreet and helpful, especially if... More

I had an early dinner at Knoblauch with a colleague. We reserved a table which was lucky because it soon became full. We were brought olives, salami and bread to the table. The seeded bread was exceedingly tasty. The standard menu is quite limited but there is a huge selection of specials and I challenge anyone not to find something... More

It is about honest food were you can taste the mood of the chef. Quality is nice but not haute cuisine but it is the honest french taste. Went there for business but would go there with my family.

We've been to Knoblauch several times over the last couple years and we've never been disappointed. It's the closest thing to taking the ICE train to Paris for dinner. The food is consistently good and the service punctual. Have tried other French restaurants in Frankfurt but the only one we keep returning to is Knoblauch.

Rarely less than almost full, the atmosphere is buzzy, bordering on the manic at times but the service is good, the food excellent. The kitchen is tiny so there can be a bit of a wait at busy times so order a starter. Prices are appropriate, so not a cheap place to eat, but worth it. Personally I'd rather eat... More

Last Monday we had our 8th anniversary and decided to go out for dinner. We made our choice and went to Knoblauch - French cuisine. The food was delicious. We also had a fantastic waitress taking care of us. All very authentic, chic but down to earth :-). The Blutwurst platter with Coquilles Saint Jacques was a blast!
