Austrian / European cuisine

The cuisine here is always delicious, I particularly loved the schnitzel, probably one of the best in NYC at the moment.

What a very memorable evening. The welcome was stylish and well thought through. We chose nice wines from a broad selection. The food was just superb. A faithful interpretation of modern Austrian cuisine. We dined leisurely and enjoyed every moment. This will be a "must visit" on every trip to NY

Put me on a banquette and I'm happy. We three were seated in one at this small classy restaurant. Everything about the place is unstudied and right. The food is a tribute to its Viennese inspiration.

The cuisine of Austria is something special, not at all like traditional, heavy German food, and features wonderful pastries. Happily there are several nice Austrian restaurants in the metro New York City area, but none as fine as Wallse. The art-filled space is small and very well appointed, and the service is polished without being fussy or pretentious. The menu,... More

We returned to this place after about 3 years of absence and I must say that the spirit, hospitality and food quality remain intact. Every dish, as well as the service, are of high quality.

I travel frequently to New York on business and pleasure trips. About two years ago, I found out about the Wallse and decided to have dinner there with my wife. It was a very nice surprise. Inasmuch as the restaurant is located far away from the center of Manhattan where we were staying, the long taxi ride was worthwhile. The... More

My friend & I found Wellse after leaving another restaurant nearby. The service, decor & food were top notch. It is in the far west village not far from where I live & recently the area has been overrun by mediocre restaurants. Wellse is on the upper end as far as costs but the value is worth it. We ate...

Ever since Danube closed in the early 2000s, the number of Austrian-fare options in the city has been extremely low, but thanks to Wallse, the art of haute-Austrian-cuisine remains alive and well downtown. From the schnitzel to the decor to the uniquely Austrian desserts, this place is one of only a few restaurants in New York where the ambience is... More

Came here with friends and really enjoyed my meal. I felt as though it was a bit over priced even for the west village, but my sea scallops were cooked perfectly and the staff was wonderful.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
