  • No, I would not go back!

6:45 PM- Arrive, sit outside with wife and 5 yr old boy. 7:00 - Drink order taken. 7:15- waitress asks what I had decided to order, I remind her that I did. 7:25- Drinks arrive and food order taken, 1 order pretzels, Wiener Schnitzel,and Eisbein. We ask to move inside, it was getting chilly, waitress says that's OK and she'll tell the inside waiter about us. 7:45- Waiter finally comes to table and confirms that order has been placed and asks us if we would like another drink, we say yes. 8:00- Waiter comes back and forgets one drink. We inquire about the pretzels, the kid is reaching final meltdown, he says he'll check. 8:10- Waiter tells us Pretzels will be up shortly and so will the other orders. 8:20- Pretzels arrive, waiter informs us that there is a chef in training, (on a Saturday night?) and the kitchen's backed up. My wife threatens to call Gordon Ramsey , I order another round and tell the waiter they should be on the house. They were. 8:50- Food finally arrives. The Schnitzle is bone dry but edible The Eisbein is super dry as well and half cold. The mashed tasted old. 9:10- We ate what we could and I got up to use the bathroom. When I returned the table had been cleared, we had finished with our food but not the beer! Oh well, "Check please". Hello, waiter, where are you? Wife also informs me that if I bitch I pay. This doesn't make sense since it started out as her treat. 9:30- In car listening to wife tell me that if I really cared I would write about it.

I live off the Lorimer stop and am now a fixture here. I love this place. The beer is great. The service is better (my waitress was a hot, southern hipster, with a texas tattoo...yes please). Also, the best wiener shnitzel I've ever eaten. After frequenting the Loreley LES, I must tell everyone this location is much preferred. Better food and better service.
