It is Labor Day weekend and we took a mini vacation from West Palm to Sarasota. I chose Heinrich's German Restaurant because I am selfish. I am homesick and will mot be able to go home to Europe this year. Heinrich was my Doctor tonight and I am glad to announce that I feel Fabelhaft. I had a Wienerschnitzel that... More

Had the Sauer bratten, spatzle, red cabbage & a German weissbeer. Large portion. It was very good! Sat at the bar and watch them prepare a wonderful meal.

This restaurant truly deserves the 5 star rating across the board. Everything from the price to the food to the service to the atmosphere is phenomenal. When we came into the door we were welcomed warmly. Our waiter was very friendly and took great care of us. When informing us of the specials he was very amiable and upbeat and... More

I am a good old German girl and I am cooking German. Since Heinrich opened, me and my husband went there for dinner. We are still cooking our Grandparents meals as well as today's German meals. Nobody else than Heinrich's German Grill could please us with German food. We tried everything and up to today that is the best Schweinehaxen,... More

After reading trip advisor reviews, we were looking forward to a first time dinner at Heinrich's. The meal was so disappointing that we almost felt the reviewers must be Heinrich's relatives or close friends. The jagerschnitzel was dry and the creamy mushroom sauce was no help.The spatzle seemed as if they were leftover from a previous day. The best item... More

We first visited Heinrich's after hearing from friends that it was not to be missed. We were not disappointed! The food was fantastic, and the service was friendly. The food was just as good as any I have eaten while in Germany, very authentic. We both ordered variations of schnitzel and were delighted that it was flavorful and cooked perfectly.... More

I have lived in Sarasota for 19 years. There are MANY places here that are very expensive simply because Sarasota is an expensive place to run a business in. Many restaurants are expensive but the food is mediocre. Heinrich's is one of our favorite places. The food is always good. Never had a bad dish yet! The owner's are truly... More

Wow...I am stunned at Hindlick's response to SRQLife's review. I see many positive reviews on here, regarding the food and service, and apparently SRQLife had a negative experience. Normally, that would not keep me from going back, as I have been there once before and had a positive experience with the food. The experience in the bathroom, post-dinner, was not... More

First - This restaurant PAYS for good reviews. They will give you 20% off next visit if you bring proof of positive review. So you can straight out disregard reviews for this restaurant. It's just people wanting a discount. PATHETIC. Next - I was at the restaurant the day the post SRQ Life below posted. I don't know which table... More
