I have heard about this as being one of Buffalo's only German Restaurants and even signed up as a Facebook friend a few years ago when they were in dire straights. I am sorry I ever heard of the place and probably will give newbies a bad 'taste' for German Food. First of all it is a DUMP. They moved... More

Nothing good about this trip at all...sorry we wasted our time & money. we entered the restaurant and were asked if we had reservations, which really weren't necessary, there were a few empty tables the people that did have reservations were at the bar. We were accommodated with a table in the bar area, which was ok, but crowded. It... More

4 of us walked out hungry after a $84 bill. The German sampler platter for 2 was barely suited for 1 person. The "Schnitzel" was so small, I would be ashamed as a restauranteur to call it a Schnitzel. Our anger over such a rip-off makes it hard to rate the food's taste. In Germany this offer would consist of... More

Arrived with reservations. Waited 10 minutes for someone to seat us. Waitress showed up 10 minutes later to take our drink order. My wife's Manhattan was very good albeit in a very small glass. Two sips and it was gone. At $4.95 a glass,I would expect a half way decent size Manhattan. Our schnitzels were very good except for the... More

I have been to German restaurants in other cities as well as locally. My experience at Scharfs was a big disappointment. The general restaurant environment was below average, the lights were too bright and the table arrangement was tight. Those things would have been overlooked to a degree but when the food arrived, I was disappointed. My schnizle was dry,... More

We were seated promptly with our waitress getting our drink orders right away, 2 glasses of white wine and 2 glasses of German beer (hit the spot). First choice of the evening, their home cooked...

Similar experience as Kathy D. We waited 20 minutes for a drink order and ordered food at the same time. No water came, our salads did not come, food came almost 1 hour later. We had to go to the bar to get a 2nd drink. They had 3 waitresses for a packed dining room on a Saturday night. However,... More
