Love the food. The owner is from Bosnia and also lived in Germany. My husb picked up on that. He is German so needless to say we loved the food. My husb chatted with the owner about his time in Bosnia. The service is great. My husb had the veal schnitzel with Salad was amazing. I had the meat sampler... More

We have ate here multiple times and this is one of my favorite restaurants if not my favorite! The staff is very friendly, food is excellent, and the dessert is to die for. We have never been disappointed eating here. Yesterday we got the mixed grill platter with salad and it was EXCELLENT. They also serve fresh bread with sour... More

Dinner was okay and service was good but I expected better food based on recommendations from friends.

We had to take our granddaughter to the Regan-National Airport (from the Richmond area) and looked on trip advisor for suggestions in Alexandria. I was intrigued by the comments on the Weiner Schnitzel and decided to try it. It was excellent and my wife and granddaughter also were very pleased with what they ordered. The only slightly negative comment I... More

Another great lunch. My friend and I each had the chicken piccata special. Fresh breaded and fried tender chicken breast and delicious salad. The homemade bread is very tasty as is the feta/sour cream mix they serve with the bread. Service was good, as usal. Yummy.

The other reviews seem very over-inflated. So, I was disappointed coming here expecting a lot more. The service was fabulous, but the food wasn't as great as other reviewers make it sound. There's a lot of oil (not high quality oil) in the schnitzel and the calamari left an oil puddle in the dish...it also seemed like something you'd buy... More

We came here for the first time not knowing about the German theme. I had Jager Schtizel and she had the Weiner Schnitzel. Mine was very good though the cream sause could use a little more flavor. The veggies were top notch though. Her meat was far better than mine, more tasty and more tender. Will come back again!

We love dining here. The atmosphere is casual and the staff are great. The food is really good -- try the Jaeger Schnitzel! It feels very European, right here in the middle of strip mall Alexandria. Well worth adding to your list of good restaurants. Family friendly and great for a couple on a date.

The food here is absolutely spectacular! I have been to a few Balkan restaurants and this one, by far, takes the cake. Growing up with Bosnian food, the menu here did not disappoint me. The food tasted just like how it did when I was growing up. The staff is also excellent! You'll get excellent service and by the end... More
