I and my guest were delightfully amazed at the excellent taste of the food and the fast and courteous service. The atmosphere was beautiful and the price of the food was extremely good. A great place to eat and/or visit!

The day was a scorcher, but it was our 41st anniversary so we wanted to go out to lunch to have a private celebration. It has been 20 years since we went to Cafe Mozart, so we decided to give it another try. There was no one else in the restaurant and we opted to sit in the shade on... More

We have eaten at Café Mozart regularly over the past 20 years and it has never failed to please. The food is European, tending toward lighter German fare, like Wiener Schnitzel, which is perfectly prepare to that the crust is not greasy, but also features fresh fish, escargot, and best of all amazing desserts prepared by their resident pastry chef....

Wanted a nice restaurant to take my daughter to celebrate her Birthday. The day was rainy outside with unusual El Nino bringing greatly needed rain. We went for lunch and there was not another patron? I ordered Dunganess Crab Cakes, my daughter had a salad, and my wife had soup and quiche. Another couple came in while we were dining.... More

We arrived right after they closed for lunch and thought we would have to return at another time, but the owner came out and said to come on in! We are so glad we did. We have been searching for some authentic German food for some time and found it here. My wife had the saurbraten and I had bratwurst.... More

European atmosphere, VERY good food and drinks!! Outdoor patio in a quiet setting. I have eaten lunches and dinners there and always loved the food. They have live piano music in the evening sometimes. The staff are friendly and good.

Disappointed in our Valentine Dinner. Expected more European fare but was just the ordinary food I could have had at any steak house. Not much on ambiance either - we were seated next to a table of 16 on what was to be a romantic evening.
