We walked past this place during lunch on a Saturday and decided to just pop in for a bite and we left STUFFED!!! Best goulasche I've ever had! Great beers on tap, very friendly wait staff, and family owned. Loved it. We will be back, and next time with friends! Please try and visit this place, as I think they... More

Went here with friends late--after the movies. We'd all been here many years ago and were happy to be back. This is an old stand-by place that feels like a restaurant of decades ago. The food was hearty and the portions quite large. Two normal eating people could really share a dish. Nice selection of beer. I had a Bauenworst... More

My advice is to come early if you come on a weekend - we got there between 5:00 and 5:30 and it started to fill up shortly afterward. You are able to make reservations during the week, just not on the weekend. I had very delicious sauerbraten with mashed potatoes and red cabbage, my daughter had spinach strudel - both... More

We go to NYC every year to see the lights. We make our annual trip to the Heidelberg Restaurant . This year didn't disappoint. We were there early and it didn't appear there was a server though. We had two appetizers and three meals and they were all excellent . The waitstaff is very nice also. We really enjoy the... More

Lovely Roast Goose, which was a tradion in my family growing up, and it was nice to renew those gourmet memories at Heidelberg. And the potato pancakes were incredible, like my mother used to make. Will definitely go again next Christmas

This place delivered what I've been looking for, great German food. We had the Jäger schnitzel and Schweineshaxe. The Schweineshaxe (roasted pork shank) had a crispy skin that was wonderful with a deep flavor. What put the Jäger schnitzel over the top was the spaetzel with mushroom, cream, and wine gravy. Yum

German décor and staff dressed in traditional costume - this was a fun experience. The food was good and the portions quite generous. They have a nice selection of German beers and wines. You can even get your beer in a 2 liter glass (boot)! Great for a special occasion where you want to try something different.

I stopped in on a Thursday without a reservation (not recommended). I had the goulash soup (very tasty) to start and the wiener schnitzel dinner. The schnitzel was excellent as well as the red cabbage (just the right amount of tang) only the home fries were average. The service was terrific as both my server and his manager seemed to... More

We've celebrated my wife's B-day, party of 6. Food - excellent. 5 different appetizers, 2 soups, and 6 different entries - all tasty, superb quality. Service - very good, our waiter was around all the time. If we need anything - no problem, delivered right away. It was very good experience, everybody enjoyed it.

What a great find. Went out with friends for Octoberfest and landed at Heidelberg. Everything was great start to finish. Lively atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable service, excellent German food and beer. Make sure to try the potato pancake appetizer (plenty for 2 to share). There were 5 of us and we all ordered different entrees, no one was disappointed. Overall... More
