Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews
This our first visit. Good menu is very small. We had the baby back ribs to share, very tender and tasty. I had the spaetzle for dinner. Also very good, had a light cream sauce on it. My boyfriend had the shirt rubs and he said they were delicious. Our server was wonderful, so this upped the review. The place is rustic with a modern twist, their is communal seating and also private tables. I was hoping they would have done festive holiday lights inside to help me get into the holiday spirit. Overall, good solid meal and it didn’t break the bank. Would recommend to others if they were in the area
Our experience at Edi and the Wolf was a great one all around. While it wasn't without flaws, I would come back.
We were seated quickly and service was great. The complimentary bread was fantastic and the drinks were delicious. When our entrees came out, one of our party sent her's back because she felt it wasn't hot enough. To be fair, we were seated by a window and it was a very cold and windy evening. I think it was an unfortunate circumstance and not the kitchen's fault. The food was delicious and they were happy to bring out a new hot dish for us.
The food was lovely (Both the veal and pork schnitzels were great, not greasy, very tender). The green salad was Ok, fresh but nothing spectacular. I liked the cured bacon, but it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
The ambient is very pleasant, with nice long wooden tables, red brick walls and a wooden ceiling. The lighting is good, dark, but still just bright enough to see what you are eating.
Overall a very pleasant experience, and i will certainly return!
The food and atmosphere were incredible. The service was inconsistent, however. Once seated, we waited 25 minutes before anyone came to even offer us water. We had to approach wait staff to ask for service. They did comp us some apps since our first choice was unavailable.
Real good find in east village. Late night dinner, full menu after theatre. we sat in the front room which was a little noisy. There is also a back room that I have not tried yet. Everything we ordered was excellent. Sharing appetizers were good for two. We had octopus, bacon, ribs, salad, brussel sprouts and shared one main dish of short ribs. Every dish that came out looked great. Tough to choose. Would definitely return!
So-so, completely forgettable dinner. Decor is rustic - think hunting cabin. Gin/basil, cucumber cocktail was annoyingly sweet and had very little gin. Aperol spritzer was tasty. Labnah-like fresh cheese in olive oil made for a pleasant spread on fresh bread. Short ribs were cooked dry and covered with a blah, sweet-ish sauce. Wiener Schnitzel was fried to dryness and and the meat had no particular taste. Accompanying berry jam helped slightly. Side German-style potato salad was tasty as was the side cucumber tsatsiki. Overall okay but blah food. Service was attentive - better than in other reviews. No real reason to stop here in a neighborhood full of varied eating options.
The ambiance is great, the many plants and entirely open front side makes it feel like a patio. The decoration has so many details! As an Austrian, I can say that the food is great. I wouldn't say it is very traditionally Austrian but each menu item has a great twist on traditional Austrian food that makes it very creative and interesting!
gem in the ruff. great place. great food . nice atmosphere. small place. seating was a bit cramped. but overall we have good seats. there for restaurant week. choices were made and the waiter offered a wine off the menu since we were not familiar happened to be a great choice (had three glasses) the food was GREAT EVERYTHING WE HAD ENJOYED FULLY. it took a bit of time for the entrees to arrive the waiter offered us a drink on them for the wait. we left satisfied and asked to see the brunch menu , we will be returning next month for the brunch birthdays. will be a favorite place to go.
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!
