I've been wanting to try this place for years and finally got to last week. I was very impressed. The atmosphere was awesome and the food was some of the best I have had in this area. Highly recommended. We went during lunch and pretty much had the place to ourselves. The decor does seem a bit outdated but still... More

I visited Black Forest for the first time this past Monday evening. I ordered the German sampler platter and . . . OMG! That thing is huge, enough food for two people. Everything was good - the bratwurst and schnitzel were outstanding. I finished off everything but a few stray noodles. Wish I had saved room for one of their... More

Black Forest in great need of a make over.... Gordon Ramsey style!! Old decor, old menu!! On a Friday night, only a few people in the restaurant,... assumed it would be crowded, perhaps the area is sending a message.... add some new vegetarian, smaller entrees!!

Food was good but music is always part of the experience. Old german decor, authentic cuckoo clock but jazz, classical music? Wanted German music, not brunch music.

A friend recommended this place and I'm so glad I tried it. It's a little old as far as the decor goes but the food makes it totally worthwhile. I had the pork Paprika Schnitzel and I ate every bite and will order it again next time I'm near Asheville. The sides were great too - german potato salad, red... More

We decided to try different restaurants and different taste on this vacation. We'd never eaten German food before (saurkraut) so my husband and I ordered German dishes and our daughter ordered a chicken/pasta dish. The food was very good and you wont go away hungry. Our server was very nice and we enjoyed sitting outside. We had a very nice... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, as recommended by a friend, who told us that the food had great German food. We ordered the sampler platter, as we wanted to taste a little bit of a lot of different foods. My wife and I shared the platter, as it is enormous. The food was excellent and brought back... More

This is among the best German food I've eaten in America. They provide fine dining as well as large party management. We hosted a surprise party last week and Shawn advised me on many details I wouldn't have thought of myself. Everything was perfect! I highly recommend them, for regular dining and special occasion parties.

This is our second visit to this restaurant, since we are not locals. We both had wiener schnitzel veal with spaetzle. My husband had a chicken and spaetzle soup of the day and I had the potato pancakes as appetizers. Everything was very good, the wiener schnitzel was excellent. A bit pricey.
