“Best Reuben!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stopped in by chance after walking the National Mall and were all pleased we had. The Reuben was without doubt the best I had ever had in a restaurant and the German Potato salad was also excellent. I know there are many great restaurants in the DC area but this one is definitely worth a try!

“A little bit of Germany in downtown DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

My wife and I had a very enjoyable lunch and took advantage of the great deli store at the Cafe Mozart. Viennese style schnitzel was exactly what I hoped for and the cucumber salad reminded me of my favorite Aunt's. After lunch we bought knock wurst , bratwurst and seeded rye bread. All were excellent. If you are looking for other authentic german food items the selections should be there. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful German food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

My husband and I took our two young children here for a Valentine's Day dinner, We are always looking for good German food, and I can't believe that we have only just found this place. The food was really good, and the service was wonderful. The potato pancakes were the best I've had. It is a great spot for families with small children. We had our stroller, and they kindly found a place to tuck it away while we ate. It is a short walk from Metro Center, and only a few blocks to the Verizon Center.

“excellent German meal in Washington DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

entering Cafe Mozart made us wonder whether we had entered a mini market for German food supplies, as this is what meets you first when you enter from the street. However, further ahead you go through glass doors to a very cozy restaurant, and instantly getting a feel of being welcome. The competent service quickly brought us menu and drinks cards, and soon thereafter we had German beers on the table, even if Weissbier was served from "Steins" and not from the typical Weissbier glasses. We decided for the family menu consisting of 3 main courses with sides + desert. We chose German sausages, pork and Gulasch for mains, pan fried potatoes, sauerkraut and spaetzle as sides. And what a great selection that was, all cooked with great care and served in appropriate portions. We were quite thankful we arrived with a good appetite, otherwise we might not have finished it all! The subsequent chocolate truffle and cheese cakes were very good, however so plentiful that we had to surrender despite the great taste of both. Overall the quality of the meal was very good, the service likewise and we will be back next time we are in the mood for a hearty German style dinner. At a cost of just over $ 100 for two, it was good value

“Comfort food plus sociological experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

This place is more than a food experience, it's a sociological experience. The customers, decor and staff are very unique.
We had pork goulash and Viennese schnitzel with Austrian potato salad and sauerkraut. Both dishes were very tasty.
We also had an apple strudel that was great.
Since food is heavy, I recommend it for lunch.
A little pricey. Service could improve.
