Cafe Berlin has been on mass Ave in DC for over 30 years. With outdoor 'patio' dining accompanied by great sidewalk people watching and cozy/classy indoor dining for a more formal experience, this restaurant is a gem. The menu offers a wide selection of German...More

Worth the trip from the suburbs--even found parking across the street. Our server, Amy, was very good. The pretzel app was delicious. We had the viener schnetzel and the pork medallions. Outstanding. We enjoyed our dessert as well. Prices were very reasonable. Casual neighborhood place.

This place was the pits- small room, mediocre food, entrees not available, and the hostess turned away two elderly gentlemen who had difficulty getting into the restaurant-

This was the highlight of our sightseeing trip. Convenient location, friendly and helpful service, pleasant atmosphere, stellar dining (I highly recommend the Sauerbraten) and the price was right.
