went in for the first time to buy European style deli meats. Spent around $20, opened them up at home only to find that they were on the brink of rotten! There is NO WAY she couldnt smell that meat was rotten when she cut and wrapped it. SHAME ON THIS WOMAN!
If you want poor service and high prices, this is the restaurant for you. Looks like management hasn't invested in the interior (and clientele satisfaction) for twenty years. As for the exterior, it's just a strip mall. Despite good food, it was the inattention by the wait staff that made this a remarkably disappointing dining experience. Avoid this place.
Today I ate at the Cafe Heidelberg for the 1st time ever. I honestly have to say, I was a little hesitant looking at the place from the place from the outside. I decided to walk inside, starred at the menu, and came incredibly close to leaving.
I spoke with the gentleman at the front counter, and asked him 'what would be the most authentic German plate you have?' He spoke of a few, and settled on Sauerbraten. I then sat down and ordered Sauerbraten. When it was served, it looked great! But then yah think, we'll, looks can be deceiving. So I began to nibble at it, holly cow, the flavor, freshness, tenderness . . . I can honestly say, that this meal was 1 of the top 5 best meals I have ever eaten in my life. Now, what makes this more interesting, is that I don't think I've ever written a review on food in my life. I know it may sound funny, but this food was one of those experiences that will last a life time for me. Again, I know this sounds crazy, it's just food right? Well I can tell you, the plate I had went straight to my soul. Damn that was good! I'm just a traveler who experienced a little bit of heaven while passing through. This is one diamond in the rough I'm ever so glad I did not walk away from.
Both their food and service are top notch.
I was stationed in Germany from 1985 to 1989 and had 4 years of good German food. This place is as close as you will get in Las Vegas. I have eaten here many times over the years. The last time I was there I was told the owners had divorced and the husband was the main cook and he was no longer there. Don't know if that is the truth, but the food was not as good as in the past. It is still better than the Hoffbrau House. I like the selection of German beers at the bar and the small deli/grocery store is pretty cool. I miss the Alpine Village Inn that use to be in Las Vegas. It was the best German / Austrian restaurant I have ever had in the United States. The decore was cool and had a train that was suspended above the restaurant and great paintings and colors. The potato soup was out of this world.
WORST DINING EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD!...
Ate there Tuesday 19 Augusst 2008; NEVER AGAIN! ...
Took over an hour for the waitress to take our orders; Drinks ordered with meal were served AFTER the meal, and AFTER four reminders! Had to scrounge for our own napkins, water, and silverware ...
Zigeunerschnitzel was the POOREST excuse for 'German' food I've ever had - tasted like a scnitzel with bland curry sauce dumped on top! I was stationed in Germany 1976-1995, ate at hundreds of REAL gasthauses - This is NOT good German service nor food! AVOID!!! ...
All that, for $130 for four people! Surely, you can do better almost ANYWHERE in Las Vegas!!
The Cafa is small but you will not find a nicer experience!
The food is so good my wife and I love. The main dish Portion are good but they could put a little bit bigger portion of red cabage more sauerkraut ect with the meal.
If your looking for good German food, which isnt hard to come by and you would like some place quiet and romantic then this is the place to go! The food is excellent, the portions are good and the service is top notch. Your food is served to you only after you have finished the course before and not a second sooner. This is not a place to go if your in a rush. It can be pricy but if your into German food and you want a nice dinner its WELL worth the money.
