We have been dining at Wallse since it opened and can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal there. The seasonal menus have always given us new choices in addition to the old standards which never lose their appeal. The spaetzle is excellent and the schnitzel is perfection. The plates have just the right amount of food... More

Every time we visit NYC - Wallse is a must. Their atmosphere, food, service and wine list are top notch and elegant. We've been there at least a dozen times and look forward to our next visit. Love the rabbit spatzle, creamed spinach, bibb lettuce salad, and any of their fish entrees. We were very disappointed to learn that they... More

Lovely restaurant, in a great neighborhood. Very good food yet a little too expensive for my income level. I would still recommend it though, and I would love to go back.

I enjoyed my dinner with Business Colleagues at Wallse. The atmosphere, the menu and the wines which were selected by the sommelier Leo were just right. I've dined before and the experience is always consistent.

We ate at Wallse in late February and just had a wonderful meal. The menu is largely Austrian/German derived, but this is not classic Wieners chnitzel, this is refined, thoughtful, imaginative and wonderful dinning. We were four and we ate across the menu, beet salad, yellow fin tuna appetizer, Spatzle with rabbit, Black Sea Bass, Icelandic cod and yes, Wiener... More

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.

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

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.
