Impressive!

Great dining experience. Service was top notch (kudos to Elijah who took care of us), wine recommendation was spot on, and the food was amazing. Love the decor and the simple, yet "European style" ambiance.

My husband and I eat at Otto's often as we are locals. The service is excellent, the food is prepared well, great flavor, they have a full bar with excellent wine. The restaurant has a lovely patio for outdoor dining. We have eaten breakfast as well as dinner. The menu selection is limited, but changes. They are not open during... More

Interesting contemporary dishes. With a German/French/Italian flair or touch. We enjoyed the dishes. Great staff and have to say the sauerkraut was so far the best I had in Fredericksburg

This place is fabulous!!! We had the BLT foie gras as an appetizer, then the duck schnitzel and wurst plate as entrees. Our waitress was Texas ( her actual name). She was very attentive and lovely to talk to. Great evening!!!

A little quieter, a little more laid back, and pet friendly as well. We ate outside even though it was in the 40's but were comfortable with the large gas heaters, We had the flammkuchen,wurst platter and duck schnitzel with spätzle. All was good, but the spatzle and flammkuchen were exceptional. Worth getting off main street for.

This is one of a few high end gourmet restaurants in FBG, see and be seen kind of place. Expensive, small servings but unusual unique dishes. Sometimes long waits. Great cocktails.

I have eaten here several times and also met friends for drinks, I have been pleased every time with my food and the bar does a good job. There is outdoor seating, I think the indoor area is too small, good parking as well. The staff is friendly. They recently redid their menu which I think is great to have... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this small restaurant and there are many in Fredericksburg from which to choose. The food here is fresh and local and the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. We would return in a minute!

The service was attentive and food for brunch was very nice. Nice trendy atmosphere. Both German cuisine and fusion menu was pleasant and nice sized flavorful servings. Highly recommend for those traveling through or locals. Be warned, the drinks are greatly over priced and the food a little high too.

I wanted to try this place out considering all the great reviews for it, but neither my boyfriend or I were really impressed. I comprehend the fact that it is a posh establishment and what one should expect on that note, but to receive a meal that isn't incredible to the palate nor anything larger than an appetizer is really...
