The food is good, the service is excellent, the setting comforting, and the prices fair. I had minestrone but it was hardly American Viennese or Hungarian and I've had better minestrone elsewhere. The small Caesar salad was excellent. This was a first-time visit so I read reviews ahead of time. Diners liked the chicken pot pie and the Braised Austrian Beef Brisket with goulash, spaetzels and crispy onions. This was a plentiful entree and even with my wife enjoying some the spaetzel and gravy, I still had some to take home. For dessert I ordered Topfen strudel, a strudel made with sweet cheese, golden raisins and apple slices wrapped in a flaky pastry. Good but despite the razor-thin exterior layers, I had to use a knife to cut through the strudel, especially the bottom layer. If possible, the owners should resurrect the menus from the long-departed Andy's Epicurean Restaurant that was at 316 S. Wabash, Chicago. The roast chicken was unparalleled as was the chicken paprikash. The spaetzel were tinier and tastier and the strudel: not just apple strudel but walnut, cherry and other varieties. You didn't have to use a knife to get to the bottom of things.
