Great Schnitzel

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... read more

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 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

We have not been back to this restaurant in more than a year but my husband was craving wiener schnitzel so we thought we'd give it another try. Honestly, better than I remember. Their bread and dips are delicious, the veal tender (huge portion) with the fresh salad dressed in a light lemony vinaigrette. Service was impeccable. Our main dishes... More

We came here for my birthday dinner. We are new to the area and was loking for a place to eat. I found it here in tripadvisor and was curious of how the food would taste considering that it is very near to where we live. We are happy that we tried this restaurant and is now considered as one... More

We absolutely love this! Whether we eat in or do carry out, we have never been disappointed. The menu is an eclectic mix of German and Bosnian food, and the wine list has many unique and delicious choices. My favorite is the cevapcici - little beef rolls served with homemade bread. The wiener schnitzel is another favorite, as well as... More

We used to live in the neighborhood, and this was one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Even though we moved, we still make it back to Cosmopolitan every few months. The food is consistently wonderful! We love the fresh salads, bread, and chicken! A great neighborhood find!

Returned here for a family and friends dinner. Disappointed. Service was slow. Food was not tender, chewy. Too much. Would have preferred smaller portion and tastier.
