I booked this venue for a bachelorette party with Marilyn who was very helpful in getting me a reasonable VIP package. When we arrived security checked us and our Id's without any incident. I was then greeted by the manager who introduced me to our host for the evening (Gabby) who was very accommodating. Once we were settled the party... More

The most beautiful, quaint Austrian restaurant I've been to this side....food is unbelievable. Service is perfect. I come here again and again. Great Stiegl on tap for those of us who have lived in Salzburg....This place cannot be beat. Come early for a good table or you'll wait. We've learned! A wonderful night out!

I planned a birthday party for my boyfriend here at Katra and it was a wonderful experience. They had different levels to the package deals that they offered, I opted for what I guess would be considered the deluxe package. They gave us our own private vip area, with security so if you were not in our group you couldn't... More

This used to be a very cozy and reliable place. But since Cafe Katja expanded the quality control went to hell. The cheese platter, for example, used to be a very handsome array served on a wooden board. Now you get a few dollops of cheese on a standard white plate. There are a lot of good places in this...

Nice asparagus menu,the best thing about spring time. A party of four had all different dishes and we're all happy! Nice German beer or wine to go with it.

This restaurant is LOUD! And cheezy music comes from the speakers which doesn't help the level of noise. We were all very happy with our food and the white wine recommended by our lovely waitress but I wouldn't go back unless they change the music which woud also help towards a nicer ambience.

I've been here several times over the past few years and have always walked out with the same feeling: Very pleasant service, cozy rustic decor, excellent food and cocktails. I recommend the pork belly but I've never had a bad bite here, especially including dessert. Be sure to try to the pretzel. Other reviews note that it is a tiny... More

Small restaurant on Orchard Street in the now very hip Lower East Side of New York.There is a very active bar scene in the middle of the restaurant and tables, well spaced, all around. Our wait person was most pleasant and efficient, providing wonderful service. We split 2 appetizers among the three of us. One was a delicious beet salad... More

My companion and I arrived at this restaurant with moderate hangovers. We were greeted by an extremely nice member of staff, who provided relaxed, friendly (but very efficient) service. The food was delicious, particularly the spätzle: the best you'll find this side of Salzburg. We passed on dessert as we were so full from the main courses, but were then... More
