Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews
Group of 5 for restaurant week. 3 ordered the restaurant week menu and 2 did not. Apparently that was a problem and we were told we had to do 2 separate checks. All of us ordered a starter but the 3 restaurant week dishes came first and they were finished by the time the other 2 starters showed up. Not sure why they couldn't stage all of them together as the rest. weeks were salads. Same challenge with the main courses.... the 3 restaurant weeks came first (all schnitzel) and after waiting at least 15 minutes we inquired when we would receive the other 2 mains only to be told that due to ordering off different menus caused the delay - however one of them was schnitzel (the other short rib) and we were all confused as to why the kitchen couldn't execute the order all together?!?! I can understand if the restaurant was extremely busy that it might be difficult but it was only half full at it's busiest whilst we were there.
And the kicker to the entire service snafu was when we asked for our check the server offered to just give us one check if we'd prefer (HUH???).
We all enjoyed our food and the atmosphere but the service was perplexing and due to that we will not be recommending this restaurant or returning.
I've been To Edi and the Wolf multiple time, mostly for Sunday brunch. It is a total hidden gem. The decor is like a sunken fishing ship with a large rope draped over the bar. Quiet and great lighting make it a great intimate location, but size and table arrangement make it great for a larger group as well.
Stopped in for a Sunday brunch, and was greeted by Eddie and family, who were getting everything set up. After a friendly chat and a couple of excellent Bloody Mary's, went for the Wolf burger. I rarely order burgers out, and am rarely impressed when I do, but this one was excellent. Perfectly cooked, the bun tasty and well toasted, but most importantly the rest of the ingredients on the burger not only tastily prepared but in perfect balance. The house ketchup was zesty and a nice bonus. Would definitely go back for the burger, but looking forward to trying the other menu items.
Food is always excellent here. Very fresh, authentic and yet creatively prepared, and delicious. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the seating. The place is small and cramped, which is to be expected in NYC, esp. in a casual place, and if you are along the bank seating it's fine - but the folding chairs are just not comfortable (besides providing no cushioning, just wooden chairs) . They are somewhat low and the back support leans a bit too far back, so you can never really lean on it (and it also makes for tough passing through since they thus protrude more into the narrow aisle spaces). We all love this place and have been here several times for the food - but I'd really suggest getting more comfortable - and practical - chairs. For the quality and price of the food, seating should be more comfortable. Even so, we'll likely be back!
A nice little restaurant situated in an old garage that opens out to the street, Edi and the Wolf was the perfect spot for a nice Sunday brunch. Reservations were easy (and perhaps unnecessary) but the place did start filling up as we left around 1pm. The eggs florentine was absolutely amazing.
Austrian food has now become one of my favorites! If you are not sure what to order, ASK! The staff is really good at recomrnding plates and whatever you do, always order the specials! The place is super cozy, perfect for some Austrian wines. This will be my go to place from now on.
Food is always solid and very good. Service is great, unpretentious, friendly and down to earth (whether we bring our baby or not! This is priceless for me and not a given in the east village, LES area). We come here all the time. The shnitzel is my go-to. The octopus and the spatzle are also excellent. The cocktails are creative and delicious.
I really liked this place. The waitress was very attentive and the door was super interesting. The food was amazing and as a plus they let a girl and a man with a guitar come in a perform a song while I was there, which was awesome! Definitely a place to check out.
Food is ok, we liked it but very over price for what it is. I didn't like our server, she served our glasses of wine full to the top and no leaving the bottle with any wine left in the table, we felt that she was kind of pushing us to order another bottle. She wasn't very professional at all
I had never been here before but my friend had been here in the summer time. I love the place and look forward to going back soon or when its warmer outside.
It was very quaint and even has a back garden area which my friend didn't know about and we sat out there. The wait staff was great and very attentive; I had the Butternut Squash Ravioli and Brussell Sprouts. We also shared the flat bread which was delish. I will definitely be going back.
Terrific surprise. Great eggs benedict (not gloppy), and excellent burger (light brioche, crispy flavorful bacon, juicy and perfectly cooked. (Didn't order the fries and regret it three days later. They looked beautiful coming out.) Bloody Marys full of delicious vegetation. Pleasant, seafaring motif.
I had a nice birthday dinner here. Everyone loved the food. I was nervous to go because I read that there is often a long wait in between courses. This is definitely true... so order appetizers, be prepared to get a few drinks, and only go with people who can carry a good conversation. Great food and atmosphere though and the waitstaff was friendly. We enjoyed it, I'd go again.
We didn't know what to expect, but we loved our dinner at Edi and the Wolf. My husband and I come from gErman families and found familiar tastes of home on the menu. The schnitzel was perfectly crispy, the picked vegetables were delicious and the beers were on point. The decor - which is sort of like a rustic barn look - was charming too. We'll be back!
My boyfriend and I had a good time. I loved the decor. I loved their beer and appetizers. However, the portions were on the smaller side, even by local standards. Also, my boyfriend felt like the short ribs weren't properly seasoned and had an "Americanized" not an authentic flavor. Other than that, wiener schnitzel was very good, it is a must-try. The waitstaff was attentive and polite. It didn't feel rushed at all. We might come back. After all, it was a lovely night
I have been going to this restaurant for the past 2 years. I must say the experience this last time was not the best. My group and I sat in the back room which is quiet and great for chatting. The service in the back room, however, is not the best. We had to wait over 20 minutes for the bill after finishing eating until I had to get up and go to the front to mention we needed to leave. It also took plenty of time between dishes to be attended for extra drinks, etc...
The food is great and I highly recommend the octopus appetizer - it is fantastic. The schnitzel is a must! We lived in Vienna for very long and the food makes us feel very much at home.
