We went to Wallse (party of 3) a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday evening. As my companions live in the West Village it was an excellent choice for a local meal out. We decided to share a couple of appetisers, the yellow fin tuna and foie gras terrine. Both were very good, the tuna deliciously fresh with the... More

The food was wonderful. Austrian done right. The rabbit spaetzle was excellent as was the suckling pig. Service was a little discombobulated at the beginning. They didn't seem to know how to handle cocktails and didn't communicate well what they were doing. One said she could help with the wine but then couldn't. But the sommelier was excellent and was...

when you just walk in and sit down at the bar you do not get an impression that it is a Michelin-Starred restaurant. but once you get inside and get your meals served you can see (and taste) the quality and class.

The food here is delicious and can easily be healthy. Get a table outside when the weather is nice. I always order a side of the creamed spinach.

Excellent menu and service but unfortunately the execution was not there the evening i attended. Mushroom appetizer was very interesting but unfortunately overly salted. The main dish duck on the other hand was bland tasting - almost tasteless. Dessert was quite nice and recommended. My colleagues had wiener schnitzel, which looked very well done. So unfortunately a hit and miss.... More

Amazing meal, great service and one of the best restaurant evenings we've had for sometime in NYC. Delicious food, quite memorable! Wallse has still "got it" and you should go there. Expect a place that manages simultaneously to feel like a local neighborhood hangout and a destination restaurant. Recommended!

The only thing to complain about, is the service. The waitress must have been very inexperienced is what I concluded. Our drinks came one at a time, about five minutes apart, as she must have forgotten all four of us ordered. The food was hot, but it was delivered by another waitperson. She also forgot to ask me what temp... More

Our group of 7 had the most enjoyable Easter dinner at Wallse. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance, we knew we were in for a special meal. We were seated at a beautiful round table by the window. On the window ledge was a beautiful pussy willow branch bouquet, decorated with Easter eggs, along with decorated Easter... More

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.
