    Limited menu which means they do everything well. The service was impeccable. The soft live piano music was a pleasure we did not expect.

    Made a reservation for my sisters 66th birthday and notes that on the reservation. Nothing done. I called about bringing a cake. Man I spoke with was very rude. He told me he has to pay when I reserve through open table so I could not bring in a cake. He said if I cancelled with Open Table I could bring it in. I asked if we should go elsewhere and he said that was fine. No wonder the place isn’t very busy. The food was good, service was very slow. Probably won’t go back.

    The experience was perfect! Not full stars for service just because they had two huge parties come in so we waited somewhat for service; but they all did the best they could. We had good German beer and pretzels which tide us over till our entrees, which all came out temp hot. 2 dishes we've had before, the Hungarian Style Goulash which was just a little salty but the meat was tender and noodles cooked perfectly. The Chicken Schnitzel was cooked to perfection with lots of flavor with Spaetzle, yum! 2 we first tried was the Leberkase with purple cabbage that blended 3 kinds of meat and presented like a meatloaf with cabbage. If you don't have texture issues, it is tasty! And the Rouladen, perfectly cooked flank type steak wrapped around bacon, onions mustard and pickles with spaetzle and cabbage. Entertainment was a lovely woman playing some traditional music, along with folks on the dance floor dancing the "chicken dance"...priceless! Have patience for service, especially if busy, for it is worth it! Just sit back and enjoy a little bit of German culture while sipping on a chosen beverage with pretzels!

    The place feels dirty and musty. The food was not very good at all. The musician was good and people, especially kids, seemed to like the dancing, so that part was fun. The cordon bleu was actually not bad, but the potato pancakes were a soggy, reheated mess, the schnitzel was barely edible and the red cabbage didn't taste like anything I've ever had in Germany. It just wasn't cooked or seasoned well. This was our second visit, after a first visit a few years ago, and we were hoping it would be better. It wasn't and we won't go back again.

    My father was in town and wanted to go here ( we used to live in the neighborhood behind the restaurant 20 years ago) for nostalgia purposes. It was just as I remembered it when he used to take us when we were kids back in the 80's. Nothing changed, including the same entertainer that's been there for decades! She was sweet and very nice to us, taking music requests to play. Our waiter was very attentive and overall friendly, and the lobster ravioli was outstanding! Overall, still a great restaurant to take your family!

    Took my wife, who loves German food, for Mother’s Day. This place has been around for decades so don’t expect everything to be new and shiny. The staff is great and the food is authentic with the ambiance of Germany. We ordered several apps and entrees, all were delicious. There is a modest selection of German beer as well. Great experience overall.

    We both so much enjoyed the good food, the ambiance, and the entertaining music. Our waiter was excellent. Service was outstanding. Our good Deutsch restaurant in Choctaw, OK (adjacent to OKC) just closed in the past months, and we miss eating there. Thank you so much for a good meal, good service, and good entertainment. -- Carolynne Bechler

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Edelweiss for my daughters birthday. Helga and the entertainment was amazing, it was delicious authentic German food and the service was outstanding. It was National pretzel day, so we enjoyed some as an appetizer, my husband had a “boot” of beer, and the jaeger schnitzel was some of the best we’ve had. Very good value for a theme restaurant. The kids loved the variety of music and danced every dance. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

    Not many places in Fort Worth for real German food. Edelweiss has been in business a long time, and not much has changed. It could use a facelift. The server didn't know anything about the food that was on the menu. She had to keep going to ask other employees the answers to my questions. She was nice though. And there was entertainment...it was ok. Not very many wine or beer choices...in a day and age of micro-brewery. The dress code was very lax for the price of the food. (People in T shirts, shorts and flip flops.) Fort Worth needs a "GREAT" German restaurant, but unfortunately this wasn't it. Not bad mind you, but it could have been so much better.

    I lived the ambiance of the place ! What a wonderful place to go to relax, eat, drink and enjoy the setting. There is a small dance floor where you could do a little dance step; with the entire family. The restaurant has been in the DFW area about 50 years. The area is large ,very clean and has a family feeling. The staff help make the experience comforting and soothing, as patrons fill their plates and their palates with wonderful German food. I enjoyed a Friday night, will be returning soon!

    I would tell a friend, only because this place is pretty fun with good music, cold beer and the pretzels are awesome! Our entrees were OK, nothing to write home about but the fun atmosphere trumps the food. Unfortunately, the service was slow, and not super friendly, we not asked if we wanted dessert at all and we had TWO BIG b-days at the table.

    I expected much more, based on the reviews I saw online. There is a lot going on decor-wise, it's almost overwhelming and old fashioned feeling, but I did love seeing all the German decorations. We lived in Germany for several years, and though the dishes were in fact authentic, they were just not prepared well. My food came out cold, and although our server was nice, there wasn't anything she seemed to know our be able to do about it other than offer to remake it and bring me a to go container for the cold one. The bratwurst was great once I got one that was hot, but the rest of the food tasted old and as though it had been microwaved. Flavor and texture were not good. This establishment also features live music, but aside from the song "edelweiss" it was mostly oldies. Based on the website, I expected more traditional German music so I was a little disappointed on that line also. Finally, we were a party of 4. Our bill, which included only 4 entrees and one soda, totaled almost $100. For what we got, the quality of it, and the fact that we all left still hungry (even those who ate all their food) this was very expensive. Overall not a good experience, and when we go back to ft worth in May we will not be revisiting.

    When planning birthday dinner, had hankering for German food. Had never been to Edelweiss. Read good reviews. Let's give it a try. Made reservations through OpenTable. Salad was watery but entree and dessert was delicious. Service was slow. I would go again just for the food.

    Potato Pancakes have Nutmeg on them, an odd addition that doesn't work and I am not sure why they do this. When I prompted the server on it he admitted that most are not receptive to it. Otherwise food was pretty good. Atmosphere was pretty good, def had a festival feel to it. Service was subpar, took over 10 min to get our drink order, though it appears they were short staffed this evening.

    Family from out of town. I wish there had been more people there, I’m afraid it’s not going to be around much longer if they can’t draw a bigger crowd on a Friday night, the ambiance feels better with a crowd. Still had fun though.
