We enjoyed our visit to the Black Forest! The schnitzel is one the best tasting schnitzels we have ever had and that is saying lot since we come from German heritage and lived in Kitchener Ont. home of Oktoberfest. The red wine gravy is wonderful....The service is 5 star all the way. A very attentive and caring staff. We topped our night off with the apple strudel which was a first for us. We both felt it was the best apple strudel we have ever had. Very light and warm pastry with delicious apples nuts and raisins inside with a scoop of ice cream drizzled in chocolate. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant in La Cruz. You won't be disappointed!More

After having lived in Germany, we found the atmosphere here very familiar. We both had the Schnitzel, and were not disappointed. They also had Munchen beer and Reisling wine! A very pleasant surprise. The waiter spoke German and was friendly and knowledgeable. We shared an...apple strudle. Definitely will return!More

Had to try the schnitzel. Not disappointed. Big piece and very tender. The addition of spatzle, a homemade pasta, was a pleasant surprise. Food was fresh. Service was fantastic. Beer was cold. Another big hit in La Cruz. A must go to restaurant.

We went for the Sunday special 2 for 1 schnitzel. The meal included a large pork schnitzel, sauteed red cabbage, spaetzle and red wine gravy. Portion size was quite generous. The entire meal was excellent. You must have a reservation if you want to go...on a Sunday. Even though the restaurant was packed the service was really good and the staff very friendly. We will definitely go back.More

It was our first time at Black Forest restaurant, and it will not be our last. My main interest was to taste their flammekuche. Delighted to say it exceeded my expectations! But what really impressed me was when I asked if it would be possible...to have chicken schnitzel, (only pork schnitzel was on the menu). Our very pleasant and attentive server informed us that the kitchen had not done this before, but would do so. Wow! And it was delicious! Our experience got even better when Latcho and Andrea, 'The Blond Gypsies', amazed us with their Gypsy Music Flamenco. The meal need with delicious carrot cake for dessert. I highly recommend Black Forest restaurant.More

This was the first time going for us, We must have went by this place for the past couple years and our timing was always off as it was closed. This time we made sure to dine there, The service was very warm and friendly,...Inside the surrounding was charming if I can use that word, You felt very comfortable there.The food was a hit and miss, Everyone just raved about how good their meal was and after tasting some I could see why as it was really good, My meal however was a little salty. That will not stop me from going back. I must go back to try the same dish as maybe it was supposed to be on the salty side I am not sure. I should have asked but decided not to. I know for a fact they would not have been insulted as they were a delight to talk to.More
