“Wonderful Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We were a group of 14 and had the use of their private room. Without asking, they had set up the tables in a U shape so that everyone could see eachother. Our waiter was such a good sport. We were a bit loud and having so much fun and he joined right in. The service was great and the food was all delicious. It was perfect for the occasion and I will be back the next time I visit the area. I highly recommend the potato pancakes and the Wienerschnitzel. The rice pudding is lucious. No one in our group had a complaint.

“Sadly Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Was so curious about this restaurant and was in the mood for something different so I decided to check it out. OH MY GOD!!!! They need a total renovation-- so dark and creepy in there. Food was ok. not the best German food I ever had. The meal was ruined by two mice running around the restaurant under the tables. The waiter was embarrassed and gave us free dessert, but who can eat. No apologies from the owner or manager. NEVER AGAIN!!!!

“Much Improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We haven't been to Koenig's in a long time- The past few visits were disastrous.
But since it is a neighborhood fixture, we thought to give it another try.
We were pleasantly surprised. The food was almost back to it's prior standard. The service, as usual was very good. This actually never was a problem. The staff is always attentive.

“Don't waste your time or money!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

This restaurant has gone way down hill over the past few years. Who would expect limbo music and a carribean waiter in a German Restaurant? They WOULDn't put german music on!!! The waiter needs to take a class in basic customer service - he cleared dishes as we were still eating (family style). The food was awfu - only thing edible was the Spetzels and potato pancakes; their dumplings were literally mshed potatoes someone "scooped" and quick fried - disgusting. The bratwurst was inedible. The gravy over extremely dry pork loin was out of a jar, laden with salt.
To make matters worse - the owner did NOTHING for our party of 9 to compensate this awful experience and disgusting food.
