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

I have eaten at Wallse numerous times and have found the food, drink and setting quite exceptional. Only once was it somewhat disappointing but that was some time ago. My husband and I ate there last night, in fact. The service was gracious and prompt, the food was excellent, the wine list varied and quite reasonable. Order the Spaetzle appetizer,... More

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.
