Great Time

This is a genuinely fun place. The wine selection is first rate, the small plates are great, better yet, the other guests genuinely reach out and make everyone terribly welcomed. Go; it's fun!

A couple came from Hendersonville, NC to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner with us. The service was very attentive, and the quality of the food was outstanding. Wolfgang came to check on us twice, which was very much appreciated. One of our friends is from NOLA, and she was very at home with the delicious menu - a touch of... More

We decided to have cocktails at Wolfgang. Everyone was really nice. I asked for directions to the restroom and one of the hostesses showed me the way and gave me the tour. I told her it was our first visit here and our 40th wedding anniversary. We decided to eat later. The food was wondeful. They decorated our table with... More

We dined here on a wednesday eve and this place was hopping. The vibe was wonderful and we enjoyed our meal. I'm pretty sure these are not newcomers in the industry and they knew just how to take care of thier guests. Food was awesome. hope to visit again soon.

This restaurant is good for good German fare. It has been in business for many years, and keeps its good reputation bacause of its mostly consistent food. There are several dining room options to decide upon - patio, bar, fireside dining, main dining room, etc. Service is good and the sommelier is fantastic.

We love this restaurant! We particularly love the small plates in the bistro area. We ate there Saturday night and they were so courteous, bending over backwards to accommodate our party of 6 in a small room (Wolfgangs has great outdoor dining but we needed to be indoors). The manager, Jackie, was fantastic and our server, Debbie, could not have... More

The entire experience at wolfgangs was exceptional. The food was impeccable and the wine steward was one of the best we've ever encountered. Overall one of the most amazing meals ever.

last night we had the most delicious flatbread and grilled Ceasar Salad. My friends had never tried the grilled Ceasar before and are now converts. The wine, a bottle of Merlot was excellent and "Debbie", our server, was delightful.
