Once upon a time this was an excellent restaurant. That was before it moved from its old location in Hoffman Heights to its present one. There Helga herself was always present, and the food and ambience were exceptional. Now that it has relocated, you'll be fortunate if you see her on the premises. The building is noisy, the service poor... More

I’d wanted to try this restaurant because I like German cuisine and especially German beer. The bar showcases the owner’s worldwide fishing exploits. Unfortunately, his employees will never share his successes because they’ll never be able to afford to. Included in every bill is $4.50 “service charge.” I asked my waiter if that was supposed to represent the tip and... More

The food at this German place is good as well as the service, but that's not the real story here. I dined there as part of a party of three recently. When the bill came I noticed a line item titled "Service Fee" amounting to 15% of the bill tacked on at the end. When I questioned the server I... More

Love their meats, only mushroom sauce that I didn't care for. Pastries are delicious. Took some dessert home. Overall atmosphere is pleasant. Too bad that patio is small. Very close to Aurora mall.

I ordered Viener Snitzel, a standard dish in German and Austrian restaurants. I have eaten it in Vienna. The was tough, overcooked. Service was slow and surly. Have not eaten there since.

My family ate lunch here recently, after seeing reviews on tripadvisor. It was very good! I had the breaded schnitzel (pork) with red cabbage and potato salad. My daughter had the Rahm schnitzel (pork) with squash and pan fried potatoes, and my husband had a vegetarian plate with potato pancakes, red cabbage, spaetzle, potato fritters, roasted brussels sprouts (you choose...

Went to Helga's a while back (actually fall of 2013) for a full course meal. The sauerbraten was a little dry, but the meat was pretty good. Typical German noodles tasted pretty good,(though not as good as I remember at the Ann Arbor based restaurant at which I worked years ago). The wines were also good. Atmosphere is also good....

My mother is from Germany so when I told her about this place she wanted to try it. She really enjoyed the schnitzel brought back memories for. Food is very good. Staff is friendly and pricing is right.
