Beautiful beer garden and delicious contemporary German cuisine.
Went for the German Sunday Brunch and Oktoberfest band (The Lost Lederhosen) all were great. Food is as good as it gets without flying to Germany. Music was fun and entertaining and the staff were great. Beautiful setting in a lovely fall Sunday in Capital Hill. Charming little piece of Germany right in DC
Cafe Berlin is charming and friendly. First time to the Octoberfest Brunch. Only reason I didn't give it a full 5 across the board is because of the table by the bathrooms and the order of sauerkraut balls was chincy. 3 balls for $8? Had I known you only got 3 of them, I would not have ordered. $2.66 per little sauerkraut ball is silly. Also, amount of sauerkraut on the breakfast platter was also on the skimpy side. Beer was great Music was great. Service was friendly.
Make a reservation! Worth planning ahead as their menu is from scratch and seasonal.
Great food and service with a superb German band performing for Octoberfest
We love cafe berlin! Such great food and a lovely outdoor dining experience.
Once again, great suggestions and service from Tim.
The Paulaner Octoberfest Tim suggested was delicious, and paired well with the green salad, figs and strong white cheese.
The veal with sauerkraut and cream sauce was absolutely delicious, another great suggestion from Tim.
Great suggestions from Tim, great advice, great service.
I'll be back soon.
Great food and great service! The staff are so friendly and very attentive. The food was spectacular. We had the seasonal salad and the wurstfeast, and we left very satisfied.
Had a great meal with extended family on the patio, thanks to our patient server for answering tricky GF questions. Potato pancakes , stuffed veal and trout were excellent. Make the effort to order ahead on the apple strudel and you won’t be disappointed.
Get there early for the sauerbraten. We had a late resevation and they were out. I had a backup plan of the wurst fest - 5 different sausages. I was gonna order the 1/2 portion but the waiter talked me into the whole. I had enough leftovers to make 2 sandwiches the next day. The kraut and red cabbage were excellent. We also had liter steins which is a must for any german restaurant. Felt like I was at an authentic german restaurant.
Authentic German and the strudel was amazing!
One of my favorite places on Capitol Hill Great staff, excellent food, fabulous outside terrace and fun bar Laid back and worth it.
We love Cafe Berlin, the beers are always delicious as is the food. This visit we were able to get a dish from the Oktoberfest, it was perfect! We are from out of town but whenever we visit DC we make a point of stopping in.
From the amazing beers to the delicious dishes, Cafe Berlin continues to be a Capitol Hill neighborhood gem!
Great, attentive but not rushed service. Recommendation from waiter of freshly baked Apple strudel well worth the wait!
Great Oktoberfest sausage plate! The half-portion size is enough by itself to fill you up.
If you are looking for awesome German food in DC, this is the place!
Pretzels are ok, rest of the food is not authentic at all. The potato pancakes were barely edible. After living in Germany for years I so much wanted to love this place but it was very disappointing.
As always, the food at Cafe Berlin was terrific and the service was excellent. The waiter was very attentive but not overly so.
Another fantastic Cafe Berlin October fest dinner!
Superb seasonal German food as well as the classics. The portions are generous and the ingredients fresh. Appreciate the menu indicates if it is a dish taking extra prep. Friendly waitstaff and owners usually on-site.
The service and food were wonderful. Authentic German food and beer. Highly recommend! We will definitely be back.
Great place to soak up some German gemutlichkeit. The staff are lovely and were very patient and kind with our very elderly guest. We loved the music, food and beer and will be back!!
Great food, great atmosphere. Best place in DC for authentic German dining experience
I understand that prices have to go up sometimes. But not sure it's a good idea to increase the price of the Wiener Schnitzel by $5 and make it smaller at the same time. Also unfortunately the breading was burned. I'm disappointed since I love Cafe Berlin.
Dinner and beer options are really good - difficult to choose! Everything was delicious; service excellent; we went early and sat outdoors-the perfect dining experience. Highly recommended!
Oktoberfest! Outstanding imported beers. Tasty sausages, potato pancakes, pretzels, sauerkraut, apple strudel—what’s not to love! And German folk music accordionist.
Always fantastic ambiance and authentic food in a great setting.
Wonderful food and atmosphere… highly recommended!!!
We had the best dinner on the patio! All of the Oktoberfest specials were so delicious!
I highly recommend visiting while you can order from the Octoberfest menu. Our party of six had three appetizers and each ordered a different dinner plate. All of them were amazing!
The pig roast for Oktoberfest was fantastic. The food, the beer, the desert - all were fantastic!
A fun afternoon with friends. We had a delightful time and look forward to eating there again.
Oktoberfest pig roast outstanding as always
Tasty food, good German beer selections, and a wonderful al fresco experience. Must try some of the Deutschland Riesling with any of your meals.
Cafe Berlin is a cozy neighborhood stand by with a relaxed vibe and tasty German-inspired food.
My husband loves the jagerschnitzel & he gets it every time we come here. Last night I had the trout & was very happy. I also love the Hefeweizen, which is served in a wonderful tall glass!
Absolutely, without a doubt, fantastic. As good as German food in Germany. If it's your first time and you want the experience, order everything that looks good. Totally worth it! Also, the Cherry Blossom Fizz was on point 💯
Loved every bite. The indoor decor was not exciting, but did not detract. Would love to eat outside next time.
Outstanding as always!!!
