Edi and The Wolf Ratings and Reviews
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!
Edi and The Wolf was ideal for meeting friends for an outdoor brunch. Good drinks and wines and high-quality food. I want to go back for an evening meal as dinner probably allows for greater culinary expression of their Austrian roots.
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.
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.
Food was delicious and even the simple items, like the green salad, were absolutely delicious! The cocktails were delicious, just didn't love that they tried to sit us in the middle of two large groups. Still, will definitely be going back!
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!
Overall great atmosphere and the food tasted great. Two things that could have been improved were the portion sizes and the speed of the service. It took almost 2.5-3 hours for our dinner and took a long time for our food to come out after we ordered.
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.
I will not be returning. The hostess was very sweet, and because I informed her of my brother's birthday, we were sent a free dessert with a candle. Lovely! Otherwise, though, the experience was seriously lackluster. I'll give them the fact that it was a busy Friday night, but the bartender knew very little about the food and the kitchen seemed confused about my gluten allergy (they said quinoa has gluten). The food was very pricey for small portions, and it came out room temp/cold. I also wouldn't recommend the "seasonal pickle plate" - thick cuts of white onion, a pile of sauerkraut, and 2 cucumber wedges. We didn't eat very much of it. Maybe it's better on a less crowded night, I don't know.
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.
