A charming spot by the Hauptbahnhof in the Hotel Excelsior. We did the 4 course menu with wine pairings, a good value at 62 euro. A nice choice when you have had your fill of beer and schnitzel. I had the wagyu tartare with quail egg, spinach and ricotta ravioli with shrimp, saltimbocca with gnocchi and a great local cheese... More

We were looking for somewhere to rest our weary feet over a glass of two of good wine whilst we planned our evening. Gesellschaft has a great wine card of local wines by the glass and an international selection by the bottle. The service was friendly and the wine great. So good we came back on our way to our...

This a wonderful restaurant for intimate dinners for two as well as larger groups. The restaurant provides a wonderful setting for dining. The menu offers an array of options sure to please diners' palates. Our party consisted of 6 people, each with different tastes and different appetites. All of our needs were met and expectations were exceeded. Wine selections, recommended... More

Quiet dinner on a Sunday evening. Sadly the food was disappointing and the service was non existent even though there was only 6 tables occupied in the restaurant. The wine was nice but the waiters had no knowledge. Do not recommend

The wine list is extensive with quality wines fro around the world at sensible prices. Service is excellent Well worth dining here as you will not be disappointed

Very pleasant evening meal on a Sunday. Turned up with no reservation and they found us a space, so booking is advisable perhaps? Very extensive wine menu. Quite limited food menu but what we ate (roast beef for me and linguine for my partner) was nice with very efficient staff. We noticed children in the place too which was nice.

If you are in the mood for something other than sausage and cabbage, this wine bar was perfect! Incredible wine list. The big ratta salad was our favorite! Loved the chicken picatta and linguini dish with fresh tomatoe. I was very impressed with the homemade ice cream's too. A bit more expensive but worth it. Enjoy

We had a magnificent meal with excellent food and service. The three course E44 deal was good value. The decor is amazing, I loved it. Fairly quiet too, and small.

Ate here recently and really enjoyed the experience. Lively atmosphere with a good menu. Food was well cooked and presented and a great wine selection mass for a good evening. Would recommend and will return if in area again.

Dieses Weinrestaurant und Weinbar im Herzen Munchens teilt mit seinen Gasten eine grosse Leidenschaft: die Begeisterung fur gutes Essen und ausgezeichnete Weine. Bis zu 20 Rebsorten im offenen Ausschank und rund 700 Flaschenweine aus aller Welt bieten eine Auswahl, bei der kein Wunsch unerfullt bleibt. Das gilt auch fur die Kulinarik: In Geisel's Vinothek weiss man mit hausgemachten Pasta, frisch geschnittenem San Daniele Schinken und den besten Gerichten aus der mediterran angehauchten, bayerischen Kuche zu uberzeugen. Gastgeber der Vinothek in Munchen Robert Zeller ist ubrigens dafur bekannt, unter den offenen Weinen stets eine Auswahl sehr hochkaratiger Tropfen bereit zu halten.
