“Great Food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were at the Black Forest to celebrate a birthday with some friends. We had reservations and I'm glad we did as the restaurant was crowded and the wait was at least 20 minutes for those w/o reservations. The menu has both American and German entrees'. The building is old and could use a re-decorate, but the food was excellent and the staff did a great job. Bring your appetite as the portions were large.

“Service was so horrible we left without eating”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Had a serious craving for German food, ignored, then sneered at when we asked who our server was. Host saw us sitting there without even water on our table and still seemed surprised when we got up and left. They also need a serious remodel, drafty and uncomfortable space. This review is from October 2012.

“Agree with Molly-Mayrose”
Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant definitely needs sprucing up as well as a major cleaning. Makes me wonder what the kitchen is like........
The outdoor patio is one of the most pleasant in the City. The food is good, however is at times room temperature upon serving. Management needs improvement.

“Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Excellent authentic German food, prodigious portions. Atmosphere is like Octoberfest all year long. Also superb desserts, all at very reasonable prices. Call ahead to reserve.
