“Top flight experience”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Didn't realize I had not submitted earlier review. This review is for the restaurant only. I've eaten here twice for formal business dinners. Both experiences had excellent food and superior service. The wine list is 5 star. The waiter was attentive without being over present. Food courses were served timely but not rushed, though the restaurant was near capacity both times. The building itself is gorgeous, as is the decor. Certainly a 'must' for an upscale Frankfurt dining experience.

“"A pearl in tne city"”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

The Alter Oper is a must see attraction to watch one of their events. The building in itself has most of the interior built as a modern multipurpose complex with concert halls and a congress center.

“Don't Forget the Restaurant”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

I agree with all the many comments about the building, but the restaurant in it also deserves praise. It is one of my favorites in Frankfurt, with excellent food and service. And of course the ambiance is wonderful. It is in what was probably the entrance lobby in the old days.

The restaurant (the name escapes me at the moment) is definitely upscale but worth it.

“Musical in the old opera house”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Saw "Westside Story" with my mum. Nice building, good acoustics. Food and drinks pretty expensive, so don't go hungry or thirsty!
