My husband and I visited the The Cottage during our stay at Hermann, Missouri on Saturday, September 7, 2013. This restaurant was recommended to us as a very good place to eat. So....when we arrived, we had great expectations. We were seated immediately even though we were about 30 minutes earlier than our reservation. Our waitress was very good. My husband ordered the fried chicken and I ordered the salmon. When it arrived, the fried chicken was soggy and was cold as was the mashed potatoes and green beans. My salmon seemed to be ok, however as I got closer to the thick part of the filet, I noticed it was RAW! I soon lost my appetite and told the waitress when she finally came to pick up our plates. The manager came by and said she was told that my salmon was not done enough for me....I doubt it would have been done enough for anybody. She didn't offer to make any compensation for our lousy food. Also, no one even offered us any dessert. Needless to say we were very disappointed and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone we meet who says they are going to Hermann. There are many other restaurants in town with better fare and also not so expensive. Please pick another restaurant.....

Of our three dinners in Hermann, this was our favorite. Really enjoyed dinner outside on their patio. Good food.. Great salad and one of the best soups I have every had anywhere... When I come back to Herman, I will be back here

The innkeeper where we stayed recommended The Cottage for dinner. We were very pleased and will likely return the next time we are in Hermann.

My wife and I had our rehearsal dinner here. We rented the whole house after they closed on a Friday night. We easily fit 35 people inside the main room, and it didn't feel too crowded at all. Mary and her staff had the food ready on time and were wonderful hosts. Most of all, the food was amazing! Everything from the fried chicken to the bread pudding was top of the line. The drive up the hill isn't too far at all, so if you're in town, you need to go.

Service is good, but parking area and drive could use an upgrade. Fried chicken was good, but came out too quick to be made to order. Nice atmosphere and very clean.
