The food was fine, but certainly not exceptional. It was quite one-dimensional in the flavours and textures. The best item we ordered was the duck, which was perfectly prepared. Based on the rating and reviews we had high hopes for this dinner. Two of our four meals were served incorrectly. One was the wrong item completely and so we had... More

Just a few blocks south of the entrance to the Hi-Line this Austrian restaurant is a total winner. First, there are few NYC restaurants that serve a real lunch (not brunch) on a Sunday. The food is spectacular. Beets, heirloom tomatoes and peaches, perfectly cooked fish, wiener schnitzel and heavenly desserts. And only $39 for the lunch tasting menu. Try... More

One more disappointment. A sad one. Wallsé was two years in a row in our top 5 restaurants in New York. What happened the last time we ate dinner there was a total disaster. Let's start with the worst of all: the music. I read that the owner was Lou Reed's friend, I guess he must love rock and roll,... More

The location is wonderful and the service warm and attentive. Our meal was fantastic...I went traditional with the wiener schnitzel (best ever!) and my husband had the fish special. Starters and desserts also great. Don't pass this one up.

We have a lovely brunch here recenly, and would defintely return for dinner. The food was very good, the brunch selection just right, and the service very accomodating without being intrusive.

This is a beautiful place, on a cozy corner in the West Village. Prices are high and the food is very good. Some outstanding and even interesting. The menu is slightly unusual, ingredients you don't find on every menu in town and that is a huge positive. Not only is Wallsé unique in this regard, they also pair and prepare... More

I was alone! The maitre d' was young, Austrian, and extraordinarily well-informed and enthusiastic about the Austrian wine selections, when asked. The several selections I tasted were of very high quality and very well matched to the courses: I had opted for the five-course tasting menu, an option I highly recommend. Unlike much lesser Austrian/German fare, this was cuisine of... More

If you want very good Austrian food, don't go here. Go to Seasonal on 58th St. for great Wiener schnitzel.

Outstanding food and service! First off Wallse is a beautiful restaurant. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were well taken care of, coats checked, seated in a nice corner banquet, water, wine list and menus. We were tempted with the tasting menu, it’s very extensive, however, we chose the regular menu, having: Spatzle with Braised Rabbit and Chanterelle... More

Went here for my birthday. Its quite expensive. The cocktails are amazing but expensive. Service is pretty good. Things we tried: Quark Spätzle with Braised Rabbit, Peas, and Chanterelle Mushrooms - delicious, I am not a rabbut fan in general but this was out of the world.. East Coast Oysters with Tuna Tartar and Caviar - Loved it but my... More
