"Our meat entrees were excellent-- rack of lamb, pork tenderloin, and beef tenderloin. However, the beet salad lacked pizazz. We did not order from the tasting menu as it was not well-balanced. Our wine selection turned out to be just so-so, but to be fair we did not follow the waitress recimmendation. We have enjoyed their wine flights in the past."

"While on a business trip and stuck behind road construction in Aurora hotel, we found this restaurant through an OT search. Fun atmosphere, good German beers, and great traditional schnitzel with red cabbage. There was some confusion about our reservation but all ended well when we found a seat in the bar area. If you like German food, this is a great find."
