The food is the most amazing and definitely the best in Palm Springs. Service is incredible and Stefani really helped make it a great experience. I'm from Ireland and walked in and was the best experience that I've had. Wish Johannes was in Dublin.

A friend took us here for my 84th birthday dinner and it was just wonderful. The restaurant was totally crowded and stayed that way all the time we were there, but the service and food were just great. We had Gabby as our waitress and Orlando as the busboy, and boy both are keepers. They were so busy but were... More

Great selection of drinks, delicious foods, nice ambience, close to where I stay, easy to reserve on line. Lil bit on the pricey side but worth it.

Excellent experience when four of us dined there. Good service, excellent food, good ambiance. The schnitzel was to die for - tried three different types and all were most excellent. We will definitely be back soon!!!

Came here with some friends after hearing about it for years. Why did I wait so long! I started off with the escargots and they were wonderful. They were baked in garlic, bread crumbs, green herb butter. The green herb butter was amazing and perfect for sopping up with some bread. There was enough of the sauce to share with... More

Very good traditional German faves. You have to try the cheese spaetzel and the incredible jeager schnitzel. Seafood dishes such as the seared Ahi tuna are a little bland and could use some seasoning, but I noticed this has been removed from the menu. In the heart of Palm Springs, getting there is fun as well. Lots of nightlife to... More

This place is great! Best Wiener Schnitzel I have had in the United States! The service is great, and the food is even better. We have sampled a number of things from the menu, and it is all fantastic. I recommend sticking with the Austria inspired selections and pairing with an Austrian wine from their great wine list. Highly recommended!

Thank 2kornsontherun
