“nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Just been to Fellners once, but will definitely return! Finally a restaurant that isn't so noisy that you cannot talk, a place with sufficient light to be able to actually see clearly what you get served - these two features are actually quite hard to find in Frankfurt's other restaurants, at least not at a reasonable price level. Yes, service could really be a tad more attentive, but it certainly wasn't bad at all, actually still better than average.The food itself is decent, nothing extraordinary, but solid quality. Another nice idea: most dishes can be ordered in half and full size. Weekly specials looked tempting. Wine menu quite extensive, and not overpriced. Many wines can be ordered by the glass, not just the local ones, also a proof of Fellenrs service orientation.
So, everything put together, this is a fresh place with innovative ideas, and I hope they'll keep it this way.

“Non existant service... below par food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

So finally decided to check this place out... a friend has been wanting to come here since it opened, so we agreed to do it on Tuesday evening, arrived at the restaurant and we were left standing for a few minutes before a member of staff came to us, even though they clearly saw us from the kitchen area when we arrived.... so bad start then.... we had difficulty getting our order across to the waiter who wasent a native speaker and had trouble keeping up..also had a touch of arrogance that i could understand if it was a michilen star place,.. the waiter had scruffy shoes and looked like they came in off the street !!!. reasonable wine card... I dont like the way they only offer 0,1 measures (overpriced) or by the bottle...the food was pretty forgetable, had tuna on a mountain of risotto.. with asparagus .. yes its the middle of october.. I was curious, ... another member of our party had monkfish, it was raw.... we dident bother to complain as we couldent see any service members to complain to.... they seem to like hanging out in the back and not checking on the guests
The interior is nice and comfortable, the food though tasted like it was coming off a conveyor belt... way to fast between courses... as for the service... well they wont be making me rush back... pity because I think this could be a nice place if the get their act together
