Have eaten here a couple times and have found that they serve up some mean German food. The last time started with some crispy potato pancakes (served with applesauce) and then had the sauerbraten. The sauerbraten was very tender and had great flavor - it was complemented by some warm red cabbage and spaetzle. The server was attentive and overall... More

This place made me feel like I was eating at my great grandmother's home! Beautiful tables and art. The food was good but not outstanding. It would be a great place for a family. The portions are very generous and the dishes were fairly imaginative. Flavorful food but still just average.

I have eaten at Speisekammer a number of times for lunch and dinner. I have never been disappointed. For lunch a favorite is the Wiener Schnitzel Sandwich. It has a crunch to it that is especially tasty. At the last dinner visit the Bacon Wrapped Beef & Pork Meatloaf served w/ Mashed Potatoes & Onion Sauce was amazing and this... More

Love this place!! Food is always excellent and it was yet again. Beer is plentiful and they have a nice wine list too. Tried the Brussels Sprouts appetizer and loved it - could have made it my whole dinner!! Service is friendly and good - wait staff is always knowledgeable about the food and I like that. My boyfriend had... More

Service was excellent, food was average, beer delicious. It was nice to see so many families go to the restaurant. I took my Asian in-laws here and was happy to see that there were some American / California dishes on the menu that they could choose from while I got my German food fix. To make a proper review, I... More

The place has good quality food, beer and wines. You can tell the cook with good and fresh ingredients. You can walk in but sometimes it is full. If you want to avoid the wait I recommend you make a reservation, specially if you have a group larger than 4.

This is our go-to place for Schnitzel! They do it right, it's the real thing. Plus great sides, german salads. We choose the half-orders which is plenty of food. Cute authentic atmosphere, relaxed. You've stepped into Berlin!
