The Black Forest is a perfect place for authentic German cuisine. I love eating here. The snitzle is awesome. The sides are delicious. They give you plenty of food. The service is excellent. A real treat.

A few notches above "standard" German restaurants. Pricey, but generous portions in a lovely setting. Very tender veal dishes, and the red cabbage surprised me - in a good way.

I had the Schnitzel Berliner Style. I chose the veal. The schnitzel is topped with caramelized apples and onions, finished with bordelaise sauce. It came with red cabbage, sour kraut, German potato salad, spaetzle. The dinner was delicious! The kraut reminded me off the homemade kraut my grandmother made when I was a young child. I recommend trying it. My... More

This was our first experience with German food, and I have to day, it won't be our last! I had the Weiner Schnitzel with veal & I really enjoyed the entire meal. The meat was tender, and not greasy as some fried foods can be. Loved the addition of capers & lemons. Nice meal & great service!

I lived in Germany for 7 years and this Asheville restaurant served some of the best German food I had ever had. Service was excellent and there is a wide array of selections on the menu. Try the Jaeger Schnitzel!

Fresh, rich flavors in ample amounts.Their potato salad and red cabbage are a must! The wait staff are very knowledgeable about both their... More

Great idea ! and atmosphere. authentic beers, wait-staff with leder hosen. My wife's Filet was too dry, not acceptable for a price of $29. My veal Oscar was pretty good but the veal was slightly overcooked and it and the authentic German side dishes were cold not warmed when served. only a few people were then seated so why was...
