Bottom line: The food is excellent and the people friendly. Do not come here if you are in a hurry. A family run place with several generations working here. They do not take reservations, so get there early or take your chances. We waited outside for an hour to get seated. My wife had the double decker which was to... More

The Jaegerschnitzel was fabulous, as well as the bratwursts that she has shipped in from Nuremburg. The mushroom gravy on the schnitzel was flavorful and aromatic, and also tasted great over the spaetzle served as a side dish. I ordered a side of their Red Cabbage and it was one of the best that I've ever eaten. Julia served us... More

We have been to Juia's several times and we are never disappointed. It's always wonderful! The desserts are some of the best I've had anywhere! Go on Tuesday or Wednesday if you want dessert... she sells out by the end of the week. She makes ALL the desserts. We went for a Wednesday dinner and she had already sold out... More

We have had wiener (veal) schnitzel in Koblenz, Germany and this restaurant serves the best ever (no exaggeration). We started with a cup of goulash served over spetzel (tiny dumplings). We had the white cheese sauce for the schnitzel and it was fantastic. Julia and Jerry greet customers warmly and create a wonderful atmosphere. The meal ended with a moist... More

Have been there three times. There won't be a fourth time. They seem to always want to charge you for more than they should and get very angry when you notice it. This would be a great place to go to if you wanted to be treated badly. And the food is only so-so, by the way.

We have gone to this place several times over the past 4 years and this time, we were there as part of a group. First we ordered one special beer but I saw how they poured another brand of beer, so they were not happy that we insisted on getting what we had actually ordered. Then, we had to wait... More

My wife and I lived in a German area of Queens, NY with some of the best German restaurants in the country. With that background and having been to Germany and working for a German firm, we feel comfortable saying we know good German food. Julia's is worth a visit. The menu is somewhat limited, focusing on Schnitzels and one... More

I am sorry but I have tasted great German food and this meal does not even come close. The pork tenderloin was dry and greasy. The salad was average as was the potato salad. I gave a average rating because Julia was very friendly and you can see she works very hard for her customers.
