I got the pizza here for lunch, and it was very good. The pizza was very meaty, and not too greasy. The restaurant seems like a cool place to hang out at.

The food and service were too notched. As Arnold would say "I'll be back".

Came here this past weekend with a friend who had been here before. I personally had never eaten any kind of Swiss/German/Northern European food before so I had no idea what to expect.

The ambiance was really cute and quaint. The servers and the bartender were extra friendly, and I imagine that this is what it would be like to eat dinner at a pub in Switzerland.

My friend and I don't eat pork, so we couldn't order the famous schnitzel, but we did order a bunch of items to share instead.

Bavarian Pretzel with Mustard: The pretzel itself is HUGE and really good. Soft, and clearly hot and fresh. Wasn't a huge fan of the sweet mustard though. I'm much more of a savory/spicy mustard gal.

Walliser: Chicken breast, topped with tomato slices and melted raclette cheese, served with homemade spätzli and red cabbage.
This was really good! I LOVED the spatzli - who doesn't like tiny potato pasta? Much lighter than gnocchi and lightly seasoned. The chicken wasn't particularly special. It tasted grilled with some seasonings, high quality cheese, and tomato. It was good though! The red cabbage was sweet, but it worked with the rest of the dish. Overall a good balance of sweet and savory over here.

Swiss Mac Cheese "G'hackets Mit Hrnli": Elbow macaroni topped with swiss cheese and Italian ground beef gravy sauce. Served with a side of applesauce.
This was really good and a pretty large portion (which made sense considering the price). We were mystified by the applesauce. It was good when we ate it with the pasta although we weren't entirely sure that's how it was supposed to be eaten? No idea. This dish was good but it was pasta with ground beef and cheese, so we were a little underwhelmed on this one.

Homemade Applestrudel with vanilla ice cream
Firstly, I have to say that the ice cream on its own is AMAZING. It's clearly made in house with high quality vanilla because it was mindblowingly fresh and creamy without being overly sweet. The applestrudel was different than the kind I'm used to. The filling was similar but it had a thin crust/piece of filo dough on it rather than a full-on crust. The filling had something tart - maybe lemon in it? I don't know - I got tired of it a bit quickly though.

Overall, good but not amazing. A few key items but overall slightly pricey for what the food actually is in my opinion. Maybe because there aren't many modern European restaurants in LA? No idea. Definitely worth a taste if you're looking for something unique though!

Love this place, I would call it more of a Swiss place than German. Been going there for 3 years now and never had a bad meal. It is a bit pricey but it is a treat and where else in LA can you get this kind of food.

Price: 5 Stars

Came here with my husband and we are absolutely hooked! Between the two of us so far we have had the Bavarian Pretzel, Filet Mignon, Veal Wiener Schnitzel, Pork and Veal Swiss Bratwurst (was able to get 1 of each in 1 order), the Zurcher Gschnatzlets, and Rosti, all 5 STARS! The service was quick, friendly, and super efficient. The atmosphere is very relaxing, they have a neat roofed patio area so you can get fresh air without the trouble of the wind. There is also a huge probably fake tree in the patio area which creates a scenic view and naturalistic ambience. The price is definitely worth what you're paying for, quality and quantity. This is definitely a must go to and there is always plenty
of parking so no hassle there either! Also, haven't had the room leftover after dinner to try the desserts yet but they sound amazing and will be tried out very soon.
