The food was very good - tasty, well presented, plentiful and varied. While we didn't partake in the champagne brunch, it was tempting. I especially liked the fresh... read more

My husband and I visited Karl's Restaurant and Bar, the new name of the re-opened restaurant, for a Valentine's Day lunch. It's now located in a strip retail building, so the ambiance is not quite the same as the previous restaurant. However, it was bright and comfortable with forest scene murals. Service was attentive and accommodating. Although wienerschnitzel is not... More

We finally tried this place last night for dinner and so glad that we did! The Atkins menu was a real treat for me and my wife. The filet mignon with goat cheese was awesome. We also enjoyed the trout almondine, pan seared scallops and my daughter, who is not a low carber, loved her fettuccine alfredo. Topped off the... More

Karl's is a nice, relaxing place to eat. We could actually have a conversation! which is a rarity these days without paying mucho dinero. They serve game to eat. I had the trout almondine which was good but not the best I have eaten but is a good price. My husband had the Chicken Bob which he enjoyed. They have... More

Ordered chicken fried chicken from the neighborhood menu, and it was terrible. Swimming in gravy, and too much breading with little chicken. The salad was iceberg lettuce. The baked potato was good and so were the rolls, but we will never go back. I also found the waitress very curt

Karl recently reopened near my house in River Edge, Richmond. This is a fairly spacious restaurant with a pleasant quiet atmosphere, not too crowded, filled with soft music. The staff is very courtuous, friendly and professional. The menu is a mixed of American and European taste (Switzerland). The lunch is served and presented nicely like a "restaurant", not fastfood way.... More

My daughter and I went for a Saturday lunch to Karl's at the Riverbend. I had the Pork Schnitzel which was served with red cabbage and rice pilaf. The pork was crispy and crunchy on the outside, but melt in your mouth tender on the inside. The red cabbage was sweet and tangy at the same time. My daughter had... More

We have been here a couple times. The first time we cut them some slack for slow service because they had just reopened. We tried again. Atmosphere is average for strip center dining. Wait staff is super nice, but not too responsive. Prices are upscale and food is mid-scale for a nicer restaurant. I have had both the steak and... More
