My wife had a work team dinner with around 10 families with kids of different ages. The food was average; but I don't usually make reviews on food. My comment is about customer service.

Despite having several kids in the place tonight, it seems to have been a good idea for the manager to leave around some big balls of red glass, including some on the floor behind the tables.

My kid (2 and a half years old) tripped with one of them and broke it. Fortunately he did not get hurt, but the ball was kaput.

While I was getting the car, my wife was charged €50 for the glass ball. As she was not given any receipt, I went back to ask the manager for it, and to give my view that it was not a good idea to leave glass objects laying on the floor while kids were in the place. What would happen if any of them got hurt? "Well, we are insured", he replied.

Definetly not coming back.

Frohe Weihnachten
23 Erwachsene und 12 Kinder, in einer Lautstärke, das andere Gäste das Restaurant verlassen haben. Filzstifte auf weissen Tischdecken und zerbrochene Weihnachtsdekoration.
Ist es nicht üblich, das man zur Weihnachtszeit das Restaurant hübsch dekoriert ?
Ist es nicht üblich, wenn Kinder etwas kaputt machen, das man für den Schaden aufkommt ?
Auch andere Gäste haben sich auf ein schönes Abendessen gefreut.
Anbei die nette Email des Organisators der Gesellschaft:

Very high end Italian Restaurant. Not cheap at all. But the service and food are very good. We had wine by the bottle, so that off course increases the pricing. It is used for business lunch meetings a lot so be sure to make a reservation before you head there.
I loved the tiramisu of course and we chose a German Riesling for the wine. Anyone that appreciates great ambiance and good food in a quiet calm environment, this is definitely your place!

The restaurant is within convenient walking distance of the DeutschePost tower. A pleasant two or three course set lunch can be enjoyed on the outside patio in the spring and summer.

On a recent visit, I enjoyed a fresh green salad and a nicely prepared cod entree with vegetables and potatoes.

The menu and the food are not spectacular but perfectly acceptable for lunch. Service attentive and friendly.

Was invited here recently by a client. I'm glad he was paying. Food was excellent though portions on the small side: all very nouvelle cuisine, ie large white plates and small portions. My soup was excellent though there was far too little of it. Starters were around €15.00 and mains in the mid to high 20s. Didn't see the wine list so can't comment on prices or offering. Staff were friendly and multilingual. Whole place is a little bit formal and the atmosphere makes you want to speak in hushed tones. In a nutshell not for everyone but good if that's what you like.
