“A quiet, stylish dinner in Alsace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

We had wonderful service in the quiet area of the restaurant, it is in two parts.
The menu was fantastic and there are lots to choose between. The waiter spoke English, making it easier for us to order. The wine is expensive but they have a very good selection.
It is a stylish restaurant with very good food and wine.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

Finally we lunched at Wistub Sommelier after countless previous Alsace visits, because it comes highly recommended in Hubrecht Duijker's standard book The Wines of Alsace. Perhaps it is because we acem with too high expectations, because we were nothing but underwhelmed.
The atmosphere was uncomfortable, too formal, deathly silence, few other diners - the service was hurried and slow at the same time and not very expert (insufficient knowledge of the restaurants pride and joy, its extensive wine list), the food and the wines overpriced, surprisingly as Sommelier comes recommended as good value for money, and the food less than inspiring.
We skipped dessert and coffee and saw across the street a simple bistro style restaurant with vast terrace packed with happy lookeing diners...... we gambled wrong....

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2010

It was just OK...which really suprised me due to what I have read. We had lunch there outside on the terrace. There was a baby crying incessantly in the house next door (window open)...every mother there was cringing...men looked pretty uncomfortable too. However, that isn't whatI'm judging my review on since the restaurant can't be faulted for a neighbors crying baby. The food was fairly expensive and was just ok....nothing very inventive which is what I was expecting. Service was fine...wines overpriced.

“Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2010

A characteristic ‘Winstub’ located in a pretty fortified village among the winefields, with an attractive dining-room and courtyard. Friendly service, an excellent choice of local wines, and cuisine to match; good value.
