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

Not only does one need to supply a phone number and an email address but a credit card is also necessary to make a reservation. Then it's made clear that if you need to cancel and do so after 2 p.m. of the day of your reservation, a cancellation fee of $50. PER PERSON will be charged. Another rule of... More

Visiting daughter who always treats us to a nice dinner. Was our first time to visit this restaurant. We shared three different dishes, butter poached lobster with apple and Brussels sprout with a Thai curry sauce, it was excellent. Wenner schnitzel with potato cucumber salad, it was excellent. Viennese beef goulash, it was our least favorite, good but not outstanding.... More

Went back to Wallse recently after not having gone in 5-6 years, and had an enjoyable dinner. Food is still nicely done, service is friendly (woman behind bar let me do a gin tasting when I ordered a martini, which was fun - had not done one of those before). Not entirely relevant, but Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Diane Keaton... More

A bit hit and miss. The lamb chops were good but the goulash was poor. For starters the heirloom tomato salad was good. Desserts seemed popular. Overall though a somewhat disappointing visit. The greeters appeared to seat other walk-ins who came after us before they dealt with us. I don't think we will be back.

Excellent Austrian restaurant. Loved charming decor. Artsy without being offensive. Recommend Boston lettuce salad with pumpkin seed and quark spatzle as starters. Spatzle app was actually large enough it could have been a main dish. For dinner the trout and Weiner Snitzel were delicious. I am not a big dessert fan, but the Salzberger Nocker was light and amazing. A... More
