Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews
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.
My friends and I got together for dinner and this place is so aesthetically charming. The food was delicious and the staff was attentive but weren't pressing. We stayed a lot longer than we thought because we were so comfortable and the ambiance was so relaxing. I definitely recommend coming here for dinner and I would love to go back for brunch.
We were a little disappointed as OpenTable recommended it as a good place for Restaurant Week that evening, only to find they didn't serve Restaurant Week that night.
However, the food and ambiance were wonderful. It's a cozy spot, great for friends or dates.
Friday night Restaurant Week dinner. Funky rustic decor has East Village vibe. Waited 15 minutes before server first approached us. Ordered beers, Pilsner & wheat beer. Started with spareribs which were meaty & tasty and potato & leek soup with strings of collards & bacon was very flavorful. Mains of pork schnitzel was very good and spaetzle in cream sauce topped with crispy fried onions was very rich but a underseasoned. All portions were very generous. Desserts of apple strudel & Austrian chocolate souffle were the weak link, both lacked spices & seasoning.
The place is good but I was really disappointed. I've made the reservation by Open table using the restaurant week link and it appeared as available and when I arrived there there was no restaurant week menu for lunch. Only brunch menu. More than the feedback for the restaurant this is a feedback for Open table website. You need to be sure that you will mark as restaurant week available only when it's really is. I came all my way from NJ to the city and there was no special menu or prices. Really mad!
A first at Edi & the Wolf. Welcoming hostess and seats at a communal table which we didn't mind (though we could hear some complaints); warm lighting and a Restaurant Week menu that was uneven: very good and not so good. Good appetizers and one main; the main that disappointed was a classic: schnitzel (light breading did not adhere and really no flavor at all)--which should have been good; dessert okay, as were wines. Cocktails were different and tasty but too much ice and not enough liquid. We would return but before we do we're going to try a sister restaurant in our neighborhood, Tribeca.
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.
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.
