“Great value for great steak”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We went here on foot of a recommendation and we were pleased with the result. They offer a special deal on the menu where you get a salad starter and a steak with a baked potato and warm bread - an all inclusive sort of deal. It's good for the price - I think mine was €17 or thereabouts but for some reason it is not possible to order a steak without this special deal...fair enough they let us substitute the baked potato for fries but I wanted a different starter and didn't want to start being awkward and substituting that also! But, the steak was good and the wine also good and reasonably priced - around the 20 euro mark for a bottle which you would not get in Dublin! We also shared a dessert which was a really yummy 'American' cheesecake. Total bill came in under 70 euro - 2 starters, 2 steak, water, bottle of wine and one dessert.

“A good chain steakhouse”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This restaurant was close to my hotel. The food was fine...steak cooked to order. The staff are very attentive. I think my rating is reflective of the fact that I had steak and frites two days later at another Berlin restaurant and that experience was amazing.

“Very good.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

This Block was the first of this chain we tried during our visit at Berlin. The atmosphere is good like the others, the meat, was good and done as we asked, the service also very good besides we arrived late, the wine reasonable for the price.
However my favorite Block was the one at the Alexander Plat. Why ? It is very difficult to say.

“Block House”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We visited Block House on Alexanderplatz on a Friday night. There was a queue outside the main door and it took us approximately half an hour to get inside and get a table which we had to share with another couple. We didnt mind that as we found it interesting to talk to a German couple who were also in Berlin for the first time. The steaks were very good, the service excellent and the staff very friendly.
