After a long drive up from south Texas we were looking for just a quick, light bite. Otto's was ideal. Lovely atmosphere, knowledgeable server and tasty cuisine. Highly recommend a visit here.

Dined with a large group....First of all, the rating is not reflective of the service staff, which was excellent. This was my first trip to Otto's and several of those in the group had been there previously. The menu, while interesting, was too ambitious for the product delivered. Two steaks were ordered...both with cold sides; Pork chops were too heavily... More

After reading about this new restaurant in my favorite town to visit, had to try it. Great location, great setting, great staff and delicious food! I tried the Pork Chop and it was wonderful. Will be back to eat here the next time I am in town.

We love everything about this place! Atmosphere, food and most of all the service is outstanding. Forth visit. On our last visit the Rib Eyed came out over cooked. (Med well) we had ordered Med rare and lean to the rare side. Without hesitation the server realized it was not what was ordered. Although we had to wait a bit... More

We visited Otto's for the first time last weekend during our first trip to Fredericksburg to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. We loved our meal so much! We enjoyed our Flammkuchen flatbread appetizer, ribeye, & quail stuffed with sauerkraut (that evening's special). The blue cheese cheesecake dessert was to die for. My husband doesn't normally like blue cheese, but he... More

Delicious food and drinks. We ate at the bar with a super friendly staff and bartender. The sauerkraut is amazing.

So unfortunate that we have to give 1 star for this restaurant. Our experience was absolutely terrible due to the bachelorette party of 8+ sitting 1 table away from us. The restaurant was so loud since it such a small space and just think of sitting next a loud group of young women drunk on wine screaming and obnoxious. Our... More

We really enjoyed Ottos. The entrees were really special, the service excellent and the staff was really friendly. We found it a bit pricey but worth it. We had eaten casual the evening prior, so this was lovely.

Yes, it's German food, but if you're thinking heavy, think again. I had gravlax (fantastic) and foie gras (heavenly). My husband's duck spaetzle was crisp and light. Terrific wine list including some excellent local wines. I loved the award-winning Picpoul (a white grape from the Rhone that grows beautifully in the High Plains region of Texas) from Fredericksburg's Lost Draw... More
