If you are in the mood for German food, you can't go wrong with Café Mozart. We had very good service, the helpings generous and the pricing reasonable. Would definitely go there, if I visit DC again.

Great german, austrian and hungarian food. Large portions reasonably priced. Scrumptious authentic desserts. Try the poppyseed cake --just like my grandma used to make for holidays.

We went there with our grandchildren . We all ordered different entrées. I had sauerbraten which was made in the traditional way, marinated for several days, not just a pot roast with gravy poured over it. The service was very friendly. We had an excellent waitress who was attentive to all our needs without appearing to be hovering.

This is a wonderful authentic German style restaurant. We lived in Germany, and this is the real deal. Be sure to check the events link on their web page, and attend on a night when there is music, usually by accordion, just like it is in Germany. The real wines, beers, food and German accordion music to liven up the... More

My family and I know German food -- and the Cafe Mozart's simply is not up to snuff. Our recent lunch party of three ordered the sauerbraten, the pork loin and the sausage platter. Respectively, our meat was tough, tough and gamey. The tasteless potato salad side dish was not worth the extra price. Even the potato pancake which accompanied... More

My daughter, granddaughter and I planned our trip to Cafe Mozart before we left on our trip to DC. You enter into a store/deli. Abundant with German offerings. We were greeted by a lovely German woman who seated and served us. The atmosphere is comfortable and lovely. We scanned the plethora of offerings on the menu. We decided on the... More

We ate here last week and were very disappointed. It seemed like it took forever to get served despite the fact that it was not that crowded The food was so/so. We used a certificate that we purchased ahead of time and it gave us $$ off of our total. When I presented it to the server, she snapped back... More

My family and I had dinner hear one evening after a long day of sightseeing. I haven't had German food in awhile and was eager to dive in! I ordered the traditional Wiener Schnitzel with red cabbage and a potato pancake (very traditional plate) and though the veal was a bit on the tough side when paired with the red... More

Great for lunch. Arrive around 1145 if you don't have a reservation because it fills up quickly. Welcome vegetarian twists on German-Austrian classics. I had the mushroom snitzel (a giant portobello) with five types of salads: tomato/onion, three bean, carrot raisin, cucumber/dill cream and a vinegar-based slaw. My friend had the vegetable patty plate: a veggie patty, potato pancake and... More
