This is traditional Austrian food and pretty tasty (Wiener schnitzel and German potato salad etc). Main issue is a value for what you get. Way too expensive for this type of food. It's in the West Village and we picked this place mainly because it's very close in location to a party we were going to after.

Wallse is an upscale (and expensive) restaurant with an Austrian-inspired menu in the West Village. The service is very attentive - and helpful. The food quality is excellent. A special experience.

Beautiful small restaurant in Greenwich Village, simply wonderful. The service was pure perfection as was the delicious food. Victoria had the Rack of Lamb while I dined on the Weiner Schnitzel (when in Rome) both were served piping hot, both were superb. The dessert was the dark chocolate mousse, wow! We plan to return on our next visit, so good.

I can't comment too much on the whole menu as I dropped by for dessert while some friends were finishing a late lunch. The dessert was so good we order seconds and stayed a few more hours polishing off two excellent bottled of red wine followed by a snack of blinis and caviar. The service was attentive but never intrusive.... More

This little restaurant in the West Village has a wonderful new chef. The focus on Austrian cuisine at this place. We had a pheasant dish that was very good. The Wagyu Strip Loin was tender and flavorful.

We had a great dining experience. It is always a good sign when the staff that greats you at the door actually seem happy to see you. Started with drinks at the bar. Nice selection of wine by the glass. Some interesting art work on the walls. As a starter we shared the Spätzle. Outrageous. As mains, two of us... More

I had not been to Wallse in years, but will not make that mistake again. My wife and I had an exceptional evening, everything worked. The egg confit appetizer was incredible and I would go back just for that, my wife had the braised rabbit but agreed that the egg confit was the clear winner...appetizer envy! She had the pheasant,... More

I had read about this restaurant and chef. On a quick trip to NYC my wife and I actually ended up walking by on our morning walk and so we decided to book a dinner reservation. Started out with a trout mouse amuse bouche which was absolutely divine! As a wine geek, I'm a fan of Austrian red wine which... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
