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

We had a fantastic experience here. The staff were absolutely fantastic. Daniel was our server and I can't say enough great things about him. Thank you for making our last dinner in Palm Springs a night to remember

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!

I am not sure why I like this place. Sure the food is good and the ambiance is good, but there are so many places in Palm Springs to eat. But I still come back here to sit at one of the two "bar tables" in the front window, have a glass of wine (or two) with dinner and enjoy... More

The food is good but rather heavy. There are classic Austrian dishes and some local choices. I would stick with the specials or schnitzel in winter.

Rated one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. It is very nice and has great food. Fantastic service and ambience. The apple strudel was yummy. I would have given this restaurant 5 stars but I am a coffee snob and feel that a restaurant of this caliber should serve a quality cup of coffee or French press if you... More

Was there last night. Service was terrible. Management is arrogant. Their policy is they will not provide menus until AFTER they serve your first round of drinks. So you must wait for server to show up to ask for drinks, then you have to wait for the drinks, and then finally they will give you menus. And if you get... More

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Palm Springs. They make a Brussels sprout salad that is never on the printed menu but always on the board of today's specials that is to die for! The sprouts are chopped and raw, mixed with cheese and walnuts in a lemony dressing -- absolutely delicious. The rest of the menu... More

This was a great place. Bavarian fusion on the menu. We shared apps and a few mains between the four of us. Schnitzel was delicious so was the surf and turf. Watermelon martinis we full of fresh melon and to die for. Will go back again. They do a $12 schnitzel dinner if you sit at the bar.
