Portions are always hearty, but I left the restaurant very disappointed. We've been patronizing Zum Stammtisch for many years and up until now, we found the food to be very tasty. The red cabbage smelled delicious when we entered the restaurant, so decided to have the Sauerbraten. It tasted disappointingly like overcooked pot roast with sauerbraten gravy and the potato dumplings had more filler than potato and were completely tasteless. It was very disappointing meal and we definitely expected better fare.
The waitresses worked hard, but had the personalities of straw. Found them to be polite and efficient, but they ought to work on their people skills ... smiling at the customers and making them feel welcome might be a good start.
The ambiance of the place is still one of the most authentic German experiences in NYC.
