Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews
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.
We had a very enjoyable meal. There were 6 of us and all enjoyed our apps (oysters, brussel sprouts, octopus) - as well as our main courses (wiener schnitzel, arctic char, braised ribs). Dessert was great too! There were not a lot of options on the menu but they do offer something for everyone (fish, meat, veggies). The bar area is small but they offered a nice menu of speciatly drinks. It's not a big place although there is a back area with some tables. The restaurant is decorated in a rustic manner and is adorable. We had a 6:45 reservation & the place was packed by 7:30. There is a long communal table where most of the two person reservations were seated. There is no sign outside the restaurant that we saw so make sure you have the address. I would definitely recommend!

Everything here is amazing. Walk into a space hidden behind a garden. Great cocktails and incredibly thoughtful and balanced menus. Easily one of my top three restaurants in the city and somewhere I always take visitors if they have time to see only one NYC restaurant.
Great food, overpriced wine list
It's the most authentic Austrian food in New York; the Schnitzel is pork, as it should be, and the Liptauer has a nice round flavor though it could use a bit more caraway. The apple strudel was outstanding. Unfortunately, the wine list is pricey --- an Austrian Wirtshaus, which this place is aiming to be,must have affordable wine options.
Delicious and special
We reserved a table for New Year's Eve in the early evening, and the restaurant was just great. Delicious food, attentive service and a warm winter atmosphere that we were looking for! Felt snug in a good way. It was a fixed menu because of the holiday, but our server accommodated a couple of our special requests, gave us perfect wine recommendations and overall made the night a total blast.
Cozy, warm and friendly. The food was wonderful!
We picked this little gem for its coziness and decor and it delivered!!! The food was unique and delicious. We wish there was a better selection of wine...but the whole experience was amazing! We will return for sure!

While the crispy octopus appetizer was a bit small for $16, it was none the less delicious. The grapefruit was something I've never had with octopus before, and it was a great pairing. The entrees (Spaetzle and true Weiner Schnitzle) were both fantastic and really just like grandma makes. Cocktails were creative and delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for a nice dinner or grabbing a few cocktails.
A little bit of Austria in Alphabet City
Our group of four squeezed into the crowded space and settled in for a pleasant evening. We each ordered a different main course so that we could sample the spaetzle, schnitzel, pappardelle and gnocchi. The Austrian white wine was delicious. I can see why Edi and the Wolf is popular with all ages. The only down side was the noise level and having my chair bumped repeatedly by the servers, but it is a very cool spot with yummy food.
Great meal, drinks & service
Took out of town friends here. Food was amazing! Everyone loved their meals. There were a few interesting drink concoctions and the Austrian beer was delicious too! Prices were also pretty reasonable. I would definitely recommend
A Good Time Had By All
Having eaten there in the past and enjoyed it I was keen to see how it fared now. I was not disappointed! The food was really very good - try the baby ribs and the must-have brussels sprouts with bacon. Oh, and the chocolate souffle for dessert. The wine list is eclectic with rather too many sweetish Austrian whites for my taste, but we ended up selecting a red Sancerre that pleased everyone at the table. The decor is funky and the lighting flatteringly subdued. The service was attentive when reqired but not intrusive. All-in-all an enjoyable and satisfying dining experience. I highly recommend it.
Thanksgiving dinner here was lackluster
We went here hoping for a special Thanksgiving dinner but were completely underwhelmed with what was served, and to add to that had a terrible waitress who didn't tend to our table so much so that someone in our party had to bring the bill to the front of the house to pay and try to leave and forget this dining experience. The kitchen ran out of the optional scallop appetizer and the waitress without informing the table and asking if we wanted to order something else, simply brought out a fish substitute. The oyster appetizer was one per person, and was baked with some cheese that made it taste unpleasant. The turkey was dry, the cod was bland, the side dishes of string beans and stuffing were served family style but were portioned so small they were really only appropriate for one person. The only saving grace of the meal was an apple cobbler, which comparative to the meal seemed good because everything preceding it was poorly prepared and delivered, but in retrospect, still wasn't even that good. For the $240 bill we paid for three people to dine here we all agreed it was 100% not worth it. We felt like we wasted our money, time, and what could have been a memorable family experience here, and agreed there are much better dining experiences to be had elsewhere.
