Service friendly and efficient but meal nothing like expected. I have never seen Jagerschnitzel served with pasta and pasta sauce. I have certainly never seen a schnitzel in the form of a round, thick fishcake shape, normally it is a breaded flattened escalope of veal...or pork. Certainly not typical German fare.More

We went to this place as it looked like an authentic German bierkellar, and ordered Berliner currywurst, having previously (5 years ago) enjoyed currywurst in other German cities. Maybe the Berlin version is different, or just times have changed, but we were bitterly disappointed. The...wurst sat in a pool of cheap ketchup, and a small amount of curry powder was sprinkled on top, accompanied by chips that tasted like they had been cooked earlier then refried to heat them up, and the tiniest dollop of dried out coleslaw. To add insult to injury, we were charge €7.50 for a bottle of still water.More

Greatly enjoyed this restaurant. From my American eyes, it is exactly what I think of as a German Beer Hall. Amazing amounts of beer and really solid and large portions of food. Prices are reasonable.

Very friendly staff. The restaurant is easy to find and has good transport connections. The atmosphere was nice, even though the restaurant was crowded. There were four of us eating, two of us had good food. Two of us had chicken and it was completely...tasteless. There was no water in the toilet to wash hands. A small fee was charged for using the toilet.More

What a great place to sit in the sun, people watch, eat a nice curry wurst all with a litre of ice cold beer in your hand. The staff were great and very efficient ( and at one stage ran out onto the street to...try and find someone who had left their jumper). If I ever came back to Berlin it's somewhere I would head back too.More

I was here with my friends, we ordered appetaizers and main dishes. For the appetizer we waited 40 minutes, nobody came to us during that time. Then I asked the waiter whats going on with the Food and he said that their system is broken...and it was forgotten. Then after an other 15-20 minutes we got our appetizer which was cold. Then we waited an other 20 minutes while noone removed our finished plates and the waiter arrived with our “order”. My friends ordered pork chops but havent received any side dish to it, while I ordered veal liver but they brought something completly different. They havent even said sorry but asked if I want to try it or I want to wait for my real order. Because at this time we have been already here for 2 hours I accepted the Food. It was not good at all, and my friends pork chops were also tasteless and dry. I told the waiter that I dont want to pay for the main dishes, he responded that they can remove 3 Beers but not the main dish, What I didnt accept and asked for the headwaiter, who even more arrogantly told me that everyone else enjoyed their Food and its completly normal What happened. When I told them that I’m not paying they threatened us with police so at the and I agreed to pay. (Had to wait for the receipt for an other 10 minutes)More

We had dinner here last night and the food was delicious. The ambience in the restaurant was so nice, that we stayed on for drinks and cocktails. The cocktails were some of the best I’ve ever had. The staff are very friendly and super efficient....They can’t do enough for you. The food was so good we decided to go back for breakfast this morning before we headed to the airport for our flight home.More

Having to queue to get in somewhere is always a good sign in my book! The restaurant was packed, but luckily we got the last table. The menu is good hearty German cuisine, quite large portions so make sure you are hungry. The staff are...helpful and friendly and work really hard. Will definitely go back.More

We loved the atmosphere of the Hackescher market area where Restaurant 1840 is located. Because it looked to have a great atmosphere & supposedly good food I unfortunately picked it out of several I could have chosen. We were seated promptly and eventually a waitress...came for our drink order. Michelle turned out to be the best part of the restaurant. The food took over an hour to come. The managers? excuse was they had a large party of people in, wish they'd told us that beforehand. When it arrived it wasnt worth the wait. My husband's curry wasn't heated properly and my Weiner schnitzel was a big dry lump of over battered pork with soggy chips. I've only rated this with a 2 because the waitress was so helpful. Lots of better places to choose from!More

Arrived around 7pm on Friday night. We're seated quickly. Waited patiently for a solid 30 minutes for someone to come to our table. No one ever did, not even for a drink order. We left. Would never recommend this place!

Went to this restaurant a few years ago and was good so thought we would return. Quite surprised at how much outdoor seating there was as on our previous visit it was winter and we sat inside. Looked busy so that’s always a good thing...to see. Ordered our meals, my husband order the Pork knuckle so we were fully aware of the advised 20 min wait. I order the Currywurst and our son the lamb. Nearly an hour later when we asked how long our meals would be, all the waiter would say was ‘we are busy’ When our meals arrived they looked really disappointing. The Berliner Currywurst I had ordered, the sauce was congealed on the plate, the fries limp and luke warm, our son had ordered the Braised lamb with root vegetables & onions, mashed potatoes & roasted onions, looked awful, it just looked like they had thrown the minced lamb all over the plate. My husband had the Pork knuckle which looked ok and was hot he said, but the mashed potato both him and my son had was dry, tasteless and unappetizing. To be honest it was now nearly 90 minus since we ordered and we just couldn’t be bothered to complain, and the waiter had literally put the plates down on disappeared. Be advised just because it looks busy is not an indication that the food is good. We were extremely disappointed as we were only in Berlin for the weekend to see our son and as we had been before and the food was good we thought we would return We certainly wouldn’t recommend and would not returnMore

We really wanted to like this spot! It's in a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants. We were really hoping to get some excellent German food as the reviews we had read were mostly positive. However, it was absolutely not worth it. I had mashed...potatoes that were served cold with chicken and a salad that were good but very salty. My husband had a meat plate that had German favorites on it to get a taste, he couldn't even eat it as it was extremely salty. There are so many options in Berlin, I would look for another place to eat. We were disappointed.More
