Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews

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).

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.
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.

We went for brunch. I must say that although the food was good, the flatbread appetizer was the best dish of all. Everything else was just scrambled eggs and bacon. Seriously, for a bill that came to $150 for 4 people, I honestly expected something a little more. Austrian? I don't think so; more like the diner across from my apartment. But the staff was lovely and welcoming and we enjoyed it nonetheless. Perhaps dinner is better; the place does have some good reviews. But don't expect the same kind of meal for brunch.

Fantastic date spot in Alphabet city.
The wine list is extensive, and even found something for someone who doesn't like German/Austrian wines. The food itself is amazing - get the flatbread as an appetizer. Heard the octopus was great too.
The chicken option was perfect, as well as the spatzel.
A great find in Alphabet City
We were staying nearby and took a chance, based on favorable reviews. We are so glad we did. Unusual but appealing décor, great food and fine service. We loved the pickled vegetables, the ribs and the schnitzel. We took dessert home (apple strudel and the almond cake). Both were divine and travelled well. I smile thinking of our time at Edi and the Wolf!
Disappointed this time
I have eaten dinner at this restaurant twice before and everything was delicious but the brunch was tasteless and boring. I ordered a frittata with seasonal vegetables - the omelet was flat with a sparse spattering of vegetables. While my husband was eating his bread, the waiter came by and removed his plate. The drinks should have come first but arrived after we started eating. The coffee and espresso was lukewarm and undrinkable. Not a great experience and won't be returning for brunch again
Always love going here. Truly a neighborhood gem.
Every item on the short menu is fantastic. It really reminds you how great a short menu. It's Austrian food but with a gourmet twist...and after you have had that, going back to regular Austrian food just isn't an option. Besides all the good things I can say about the food and unique tasteful decor, the last time I went was a big hit for service reasons. I put in my note on the Open Table reservation that I would really appreciate a solo table. The hostess read the request and accommodated my guest and I without even a reminder about it. We got to share the couch side of the table and really have a nice comfortable "cuddle" with our meal. Sounds cheesy, but its our preferable eating style and in a place that's cozy like Edi it really is great. Obviously this can't always happen, but this last time it did and it caused me to write my first and probably only review I'll write. Haha! So, thanks Edi and the Wolf. :)
good but not great
edi and the wolf is really cute and a definite hot spot. we went on friday at 8:15 and were seated around 30 minutes late for our reservation. the food was just OK. the drinks there and at their sister bar were kind of meh... i wouldn't go back, but it was good to experience.
