“Most Excellent- recently awarded a Michelin star”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We showed up one evening without a reservation and were lucky to get a nice outside table. We had their four course tasting menu with excellent wine pairings from local wineries. Everything was exceptional: food presentation, flavours, service. It is very much worth a visit. I found out after our visit that it is now a one star Michelin restaurant.

“One of the best main courses ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Weinsinn is a great restaurant with an even greater potential. The food is fantastic: beautifully presented, magnifically executed, incredible ingredients. The wines are extraordinary too: we had the best white wine we've drunk so far, and it is produced not far from Frankfurt, in the Rheingau. Our main course was delicious: lamb cooked in two different ways, one better than the other (stewed and roasted). Let's just say it was one of the best main courses we've ever had. Why not five stars then? Because there are a couple of things that need sorting out before Weinsinn deserves the top mark: First, the indoor seating is way too crowded and tables are too close to one another. It's a one Michelin-star restaurant: it ought to prefer fewer guests to cramming as many as possible in a relatively small dining room. Second, prices are just about fine for the food, but way too expensive for the wines. I know some of the wines they serve and the recharge is just way too high. The price of the water, then, borders the ridiculous... it should be not more than half what it is now. However, overall Weinsinn is a amazing restaurant and if it sorts out this handful of shortcomings it can aspire to great things.

“A remarkably well executed evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This was a truly remarkable evening. The meal was so incredibly well planned out from start to finish. We loved the 4 course tasting menu, though it seemed like we got so many more dishes than I was expecting! Since the menu was in German, we trusted our waiter to choose everything for us and he did an amazing job! The wine pairings were perfection - each adding a different note to the dish. Service was attentive and timing was really well planned. During a few lulls in service, we were treated to an extra glass of what we had on the table while waiting.

The price was steep but the atmosphere and style far and away made up for it!

“Weinsinn a number 2 in Frankfurt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We were lucky today. The hotel had booked two seats at Weinsinn but when we arrived there was no record of us at all. Two guests had cancelled so we could get a table anyhow. Great restaurant with super ambiance (as if you were at home with a Michellin star cook). Food was amazing and if I may make a bit of criticism: this is the first restaurant ever that did not have a true vegetarian alternative for each course. But for the rest the color an taste of the food was amazing, paired with a really nice local wine
