Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews

I normally like this restaurant a la carte, but the New Year's Eve experience was a mess. Despite not being full, it seemed like the staff was rushing us through our meal--putting the appetizer out before we had even touched out our amuse, trying to take our plates before they were done. Also, the desert was disappointing. Chocolate cake does NOT equal chocolate souffle. I was disappointed because I enjoy this place so much normally, but their NYE experience was inadequate and overly priced for what it was.

Not the first time eating here. Food is usually very good. Service is quick; don't expect to be lingering very long. We were sat in the back patio on the coldest night of the year thus far. It was eerily quiet and drafty. It was a unique dining experience that I would not like to repeat. I'm sure the patio is lovely in the spring.

Lovely dinner after a movie. The food was quite good. However there was an extensive wait after the main course before the entrée. Other people actually arrived, dined, and left before our main course arrived. There was minimal explanation/apology from the waitstaff about this.

Despite the smaller menu, everything on the menu is delicious. The cocktails are also not to be missed. The restaurant is very small and a communal table seats the majority of patrons. The interior decorations are very cool and the vibe is super energetic. The service was friendly but the drinks were very slow to hit the table. Will definitely be back again.

Decor is great, rustic and cozy. We had to wait 30 mins for our table after making a reservation and were going to be placed in the backroom (cold and quiet) so we waited even longer to be seated at front room (make sure you stress that unless it's summer). Octopus starter was really chewy and definitely not good. Pate and bread was good but the squash salad was very forgettable. I ordered the schnitzel and was looking forward to some crunchy, flavourful meat but was disappointed. Have had much better in non-austrian/germanic places! Overall, food is very hit and miss - though some friends ordered the butternut squash ravioli which was indeed v good. Apple strudel dessert also disappointed in flavour, lacked crackly texture and the chocolate mousse lacked a chocolate punch. I wouldn't go again despite the nice decor...what a shame!

Best description is pretentious. Noise level high, tables jammed together. People at the bar also in the laps of diners, and very dark-never could read a word on my menu or see my food.
Bread and cheeses excellent, entrees fair, dessert good.
It was fine, but I wouldn't make a special effort to eat there again.

Second time dining at Edi and the Wolf- it has been an absolute delight both times. Most recently, I brought my mother and a friend of hers, both of whom are major foodies, and they were absolutely BLOWN AWAY (especially by the spaetzle and duck breast).

Wanted to love it. Meal was served cold. Would have been perfect if it was served at correct temperature. Cocktail
Menu was good and the ambiance was terrific. We had a perfect seat by front windows. Waitress was friendly and cheerful.

The food was great, but the service was not. It seemed that the server was annoyed by our presence. She was not friendly or kind, and made my out of town guests feel unwelcome. I left feeling disappointed and slightly embarrassed.
Delicious food, great cocktails, and the ...
Delicious food, great cocktails, and the back "garden" area was like a secluded oasis. We ate relatively early (6:45) and were the only ones in the back area. It was nice and cool, the lighting was intimate and the waitress visited us regularly but not intrusively. I had a great time and would love to go back.

One of the best meals I have had all year! The decor was super cool, the drinks were delicious, and the food was excellent! Two of my friends got the chicken which was cooked to perfection and my ravioli was the perfectly filling while also not making me feel weighed down like pasta dishes often do. I would absolutely recommend!!

I came here to celebrate my birthday, and we had an amazing experience. The service was perfect--attentive and helpful, with lots of bread refills (we were hungry!). Delicious food--get the spatzle! What won me over though was the round of birthday shots for the table. Night made.

This place is very cool! We felt like we were in another country sitting in the back patio. The cocktails and the food were delicious! We brought another couple who are a bit conservative and picky eaters. At first they were a bit skeptical but they followed our lead and loved it!!! We will be back.
Great vibe, decor and indoor / outdoor garden feel. The food was mostly very tasty. The down side was that the brunch choices are quite limited in terms of healthy options. I went for the poached eggs and wheatberry salad as it sounded healthiest but there was so much wheatberry grain and it was far too salty. Their potatoes are delicious, as was the sharing pizza with egg and ricotta. We ordered one thing with substitutions, which the kitchen got wrong twice, despite there not being many people in the restaurant, so that was a bit of a disappointment. I would give the place another go though - probably for dinner this time.
We were a group of 10 , and we all know how hard it is to find a place for Brunch in NYC for a large group! So i chose to reserve through Open Table! I had had better experiences before, but this time we waited for 45/50 minutes to get our food, and the place wasn't event packed at all . And once we got our food, it was small quantities and average food.
Chose dinner instead of brunch & glad we did
We were seated in the back garden, a funky and totally delightful space, which was pleasant even when filled to capacity. Our server was attentive & helpful and our meal completely unhurried. We had the wiener schnitzel (veal version), the melt-in-your-mouth short ribs, the house made pommes frites and apple strudel for dessert. All very good ---- and accompanied by a good wine list. One of the more pleasant dining experiences in a city where crowding & noise too often rule
I am from SC and came to NY for a trip with some friends. I chose Edi and the Wolf purely because of the show Knife Fight. We arrived early and they seated us immediately. The cocktails, food, and service were all fantastic. I have a culinary degree and was so excited to get traditional Austrian food prepared the right way. It was all amazing. Both of my dining guests agreed with me when I said that it was the best part of our NY trip. Will definitely go back if I head up North again.
