Decor is very traditional and rich. Service is typical first class European. Food is very traditional and delicious, featuring Austrian and German dishes. Veal schnitzel is to die for, the sausages are very authentic German style. The cakes and pastries and superb, especially the apricot crepes! This is the fourth time I have eaten here and I am sure I... More

We ate both breakfast and lunch at the Café Sabarsky, located in the Neue Museum. It has a Viennese menu and old world feel. The food was beautifully presented on white linen table cloths in a dark wood paneled room. It is pricey, but we loved the experience!!! If you are spending the day on the "Museum Mile", don't miss... More

It is fun to go to the Cafe. It is like stepping back in time and location. Fun! The food and service are fine but not the best part of the experience. I still so enjoy going there.

Awesome Austrian/German cafe at the first floor of Neue Gallery with authentic cuisine. Perfect cakes especially Mozarttorte and Feuiletine. Good sausages on a list and great selection of German beer. Hot chocolate a la Sabarsky was also delish. This cafe is expensive but has an adorable atmosphere and worth the money.

Vrery good and surprising German-Austrian restaurant in Museum og German Art. Viennese dishes were particularly good and made with care. Service was a bit spotty, with some mixed up orders and a somewhat hurried pace, ut worth a try if you'r in or near the museum.

The ambience is only second to the dining fare. We girlfriends had such a classy, delicious lunch and the place was quiet. A wonderful place to sit and chat. The coffees and desserts were so European. A nice getaway from the normal bustle.

We ate lunch there before visiting the Neue Galerie's Degenerate Art exhibition (which was great!) and it was not a good experience. Our waitperson was cold, bossy and inattentive. When I asked if the crab salad had any greens, she said, "very few, but you can order this other salad with it." For $16 - lettuce and radishes. My salad... More

A charming cozy room with a Viennese inspired menu. The food was good; well prepared and tasty. We had 2 versions of bratwurst, goulash and wiener schnitzel. All of the deserts looked incredible. The 2 we sampled, a pistachio chocolate cake and cheese strudel were excellent. Unfortunately the restaurant crams too many tables into a small space. In addition, the... More

Went for lunch as part of a visit to the Neue Galerie museum. It was very busy, the service fairly lax and certainly not gracious. The food was good but fairly expensive for a quick,casual lunch. Probably would be more enjoyable off hours or for dinner.
