“My favourite meal in Berlin.”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

After reading the reviews we weren't sure if we would get a table as the minute we walked in the restaurant was bustling. There were already a few people sitting at the bar waiting on tables. But luck would have it we got a table near the window to people watch the world going by outside. The waitress Sindy was fantastic, good fun and extremely efficient and very obviously good at her job. The menu had lots to choose from but being a good steak house both myself and my fiancé went for steaks - Mr Rumpsteak and the fillet mignon. All steaks come with a salad starter, I opted for the garlic sauce on this and it was delicious. Perfect portion for a starter. We also got a bottle of the Chilean sauv blanc which was easy to drink and not too expensive at €20 for the bottle. You get a baked potatoes with the main meal but I swapped this for fries and went halves with himself. The fillet was for me and I ordered it med/well. It was absolutely perfect. And absolutely delicious. We didn't get any extra sauces and you don't need them. The steaks speak for themselves. The baked potato comes with a sour cream and chopped chives on top and it was yum. The fries were skinny and the portion was perfect. A young girl came in with her parents who was wheelchair bound. I was very impressed with all the staff who went out of their way to help the girl and her parents and made them very comfortable. We didn't have desert as neither of us could fit any more food in. I would definitely eat here again and would definitely recommend it. The toilets were spotless and smelled like peach schnapps.

“Sunday dinner !”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Read a few reviews about this chain restaurant. Theres a few dotted around Berlin/Germany and we walked by a few on the Saturday. They looked appealing and were always busy. We had walked for miles on the sunday morning and after a small breakfast decided to go for the big steak sunday dinner. This particular restaurant is in a very busy area, next to the TV Tower. We got a nice table in the window. Our waitress was nice. Giving us the English menu she took our drink and starter order and off she went. Ice cold german lager- that's worth waiting for. we both had soup. Steaks come with jacket potato with sour crème and chives !!! Coleslaw and garlic bread. Different but oddly a great combination. Wine selection was good. Puddings were lovely- I smashed the apple straddle and vanilla cream sauce. Its a long time since ive had 3courses and wine and beer but when in berlin it seemed o so right ! If you like steak/grilled food this is a very good choice. Its not cheap but we got our moneys worth - so price comes second to quality/value when dining out. Cheers !

“if you have time and money to waste”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We went there at 14.45 on Sunday afternoon. Half restaurant was empty. We were five persons and as educated people we say "HI" when we enter in a room, the waitress treated us as we didn't do so and in particular direct her uglyness to my sister repeating "HI HI HI" until my sister said her that all of us have said before hi! then she ran at a table and from distance shouted and waved us to go overthere. Thanks God another guy came to take the order (very quickly, again- half restaurant was empty and many of the tables occupied were already served). We waited until 15.30 for two rumpsteaks, one filet mignon (ordered medium cooked, arrived rare cooked and with blood and water all over the plate) one classic hamburger and one new york cheeseburger both overcooked, unflavoured- the cheese on the cheeseburger was burned. For the price you pay for the main dishes they include a salad and a potato with sour creme, thanks.. very gentle but I would appreciate more a smile, more attention to the ingredients and a faster service.

“Great steak House!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

After a long day of shopping and sightseeing, we were ready for a hot tasty meal. The Block House must be a chain, as I saw several on our bus trips around town. Our waitress was delightful, the restaurant warm and inviting. We had salad, baked potato with sour cream, and a small steak. All were perfect, exactly what we wanted. The desert just finished the meal. Nothing special, just good Steak house fare.
