Description: Following the opening of the hotel in 1907, the restaurant was immediately successful in setting new standards for the culinary world. The most famous recipes of that splendor of time remain on the menu - including the Adlon sole filet and the world-famous Canard a la presse, which are still savored by connoisseurs today.The Lorenz Adlon Esszimmer is not only reminiscent of that time of tradition, luxury, and grandeur - today the restaurant remains a trendsetter that indulges guests with culinary delights, served with genuine passion.

“A real experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

My wife and I had an amazing night at this restaurant. We have eaten at upper end restaurants before, but this surpassed the previous outings! We selected 7 courses without accompanying wines, but with all the amuse bouches we ended up at 11.5 courses! Each was fantastically executed and very enjoyable. Obviously amazing to the eye. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is not at all stuffy and the service was light hearted, fun but not too intrusive. Thanks for a great night that we will remember for the rest of our lives!

“Two Michelin Stars well earned”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The dining experience here is sublime. First of all there are only 8 tables so be prepared for very personalized service. The service however is not stuffy in the slightest. The waitstaff is very friendly and personable. I highly recommend the tasting menu with wines for each course. Our dinner lasted 3 hours and every dish was a visual work of art as well as tasting amazing. The in house made truffles at the end of the meal are a delightful touch. Yes the restaurant is very expensive, but it is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed.

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is worth the journey to Berlin alone.

Food, service, atmosphere all faultess.

Visiting in the winter with the log fire burning, enjoying an exceptional 8-course dinner, paired with excellent wine choices was more than memorable.

The Lorenz Adlon is a must for any special occasion.

“Take your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is a place I would recommend as a must if you love fine dining. Make sure though that you make a reservation well ahead and most important; Take your time to fully enjoy all the courses and amuses. The combination of wines and food is superb. Choose a set menu with accompanying wines and let the Chef and staff surprise your taste buds! Excellent service, alas not too common in Germany.

“WOW, WOW, WOW!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

This is an experience of a life time. We had an amazing dinner there. The food is unbelievable! Both in taste and form. We ordered the 5 course menu at 120E/pp together with champagne and water. We instead got 9 courses with many complementries from the kitchen. The staff was so nice - funny and fun - gave us comfortable feeling together with through explanations. One small comment, which does not influence the experience, restrooms are part of the hotel - nice but not in the standard of the restaurant. Bottom line, expensive but worth every dollar as you get something unusual you will remember for a long time. After 4 hours of pure pleasure we felt full and happy amazingly!
