Went back to Wallse recently after not having gone in 5-6 years, and had an enjoyable dinner. Food is still nicely done, service is friendly (woman behind bar let me do a gin tasting when I ordered a martini, which was fun - had not done one of those before). Not entirely relevant, but Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Diane Keaton all were there too.

A bit hit and miss. The lamb chops were good but the goulash was poor. For starters the heirloom tomato salad was good. Desserts seemed popular. Overall though a somewhat disappointing visit. The greeters appeared to seat other walk-ins who came after us before they dealt with us. I don't think we will be back.

Excellent Austrian restaurant. Loved charming decor. Artsy without being offensive. Recommend Boston lettuce salad with pumpkin seed and quark spatzle as starters. Spatzle app was actually large enough it could have been a main dish. For dinner the trout and Weiner Snitzel were delicious. I am not a big dessert fan, but the Salzberger Nocker was light and amazing. A little like eating a fresh marshmallow. Must try! The apps and dessert were big enough to share. Go for a walk along the Hudson afterwards for a perfect evening.

My brother, sister-in-law, and I enjoyed ourselves tonight. The Antelope was not on menu tonight (something I had been waiting for for a month), so based on suggestions from our server, we ordered the Rabbit appetizer, Local Striped Bass, Braised Beef Cheeks, and Weiner Schnitzel. Amuse bouche was a smoked trout and chive mousse in a crispy cone, delicious! Rabbit Appetizer was prepared in a way that my sister-in-law would willingly eat the peas and chantrelles (she dislikes peas and mushrooms), though the flavor to me was a little odd when I didn’t have a piece of rabbit on it (with rabbit it was a perfect bite). Bass was perfectly cooked (I am a grill cook at a highly successful fine dining seafood restaurant in Orlando), Weiner Schnitzel was very tasty, and the beef cheeks were tender enough to cut with a fork (quite good, it is a popular item according to our server). After those recommendations we decided to share 1 last recommendation from her, the Salzburger Nockerl with Huckleberries. Think like a soufflé style creamy meringue with sweet berries underneath, absolutely perfect finish to the meal. As we left, we agreed that it was an excellent choice for dinner.

We had a really wonderful dinner on a very hot and humid NY evening. Started with superb heirloom tomatoes served with onions and balsamic vinaigrette. I love these flavorful tomatoes as opposed to the tasteless ones you now get in the shops. Whenever I see them on a menu I order them. These were amongst the best I've eaten. My wife skipped the appetizer and for the mains I had the beef goulash and she had the Wiener schnitzel. Both portions were quite large so she was happy to have skipped the appetizer. We have both dined here before so we knew the portion sizes. I have had the goulash before but this presentation with vegetables and quark spaetzle. Was outstanding. For dessert we shared the Black Forest tart which was very nice but after a filling dinner probably could have skipped. For wine we had a bottle of a Zweigelt. Don't know much about Austrian wines so went with the cheapest red. It was very good. We highly recommend Wallse.
