Wir hatten samstags nachmittags via opentable reserviert für 21 Uhr und auch eine Bestätigung bekommen. Vor Ort wurden wir unfreundlich des Restaurant verwiesen mit den Worten Reservierung könne gar nicht sein, Küche hat schon zu, mit Open table haben wir nur Probleme usw.
Auch meine Bestätigungsmail interessierte nicht.
Ganz schlechter Umgang mit Kunden dort fand ich. Und wurde noch nicht mal alternativ was angeboten. Nur die Worte: dann gehen sie sich zum Potsdamer Platz. Is klar!!!
Nie wieder dort hin und nicht zu empfehlen!

positiv war: Die Kellnerin u Kellner waren witzig u schnell, Die Lage für die Silvesterfeier am Brandenburger Tor war einmalig, das Restaurant gemütlich , sauber und hatte ein gewisses flair. Schlecht war: Die Silvester Karte war ausbaufähig da es um ca 21.00 Uhr schon keine Haxe mehr gab.

Made the mistake of believing the reviews. Tourist trap and the worst food we had in Berlin. Service was barely polite and the place felt little better than a fast food place. Don’t waste your time or money.

Das war nichts. Den zweiten Punkt gibt's nur für das halbwegs ordentliche Essen zu moderaten Preisen. Es hat ewig gedauert, bis wir bedient wurden, das Personal war ungehobelt, offenbar auch faul und wirkte extrem ungeschult. Es war dreckig ohne Ende im Innenhof, aber niemand fühlte sich berufen, die herumfliegenden Servietten oder Essensreste mal vom Boden zu entfernen, obwohl ständig Servicekräften offenbar aufgabenlos umherirrten. Wenn man in der Gastro die offensichtliche Arbeit nicht sieht oder nicht sehen will, ist man fehl am Platz ...

Great time with friends & wonderful location. An outdoor seating located within provided a friendly, more quiet atmosphere. Great service & food. So glad we went.

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant.
The location couldn't be better as it was right next to the Brandenburg gate and Reichstag building.
The service was outstanding as well.
The portions were amazingly generous.
My roasted pork knuckle was unbelievably delicious.
The home brewed beer was without any doubt the best.

I already knew the Hopfingerbräu as a really nice place. So it was an easy choice, this once as well, planning a work dinner for a yearly meeting. During preparation, the event escalated eventually involving more than fifty people, with the last participants hopping in at the very last minute. ...I was very happy to have chosen such capable venue!

The professional management at Hopfongerbräu, and the flexibility in booking adjustments was a true blessing. On the night, strolling downtown Mitte and enjoying the sunset and a spell of sightseen at the Brandenburger Tor was a great overture for our convivial dinner. The attentiveness of the waiters, the quiet place (ok, it was Sunday) and balanced menu choice made the night really pleasant for all guests. Many of us remained until closing time. Separate bills, no problem. Everything was pretty accurate. Actually flawless.

Great feedbacks from all the guests, kudos to the Hopfingerbräu! We will be back!

We came at the tail end of a large party in the adjacent room. Noisy until the party departed. Food and beer were good. Servers were a bit taxed at first. Bathroom attendent was pushy on leaving money for use of the toilette even when we had eaten meal there... Great location right next to the Brandenburg Gate.

Booked for a group of 10 on a recent birthday trip to Berlin. Hopfingerbrau is perfectly located next to Brandenburg gate, near the Bundestag an opposite Tiefgarten so perfect for lunch, dinner, drinks when sightseeing. We were accommodated outside at our request and we loved the typically German dishes of hearty pork knuckle, schnitzel with potato salad, and would recommend sharing the delicious baked cheese with bread to dip in. We were very surprised when the bill came as it was so reasonable. Would recommend.

Das Gasthaus ist eine Mischung aus Sportsbar und Restaurant. Die Karte ist recht einfach gehalten, jedoch ausreichend und es ist fast für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei. Gerade für die hervorragende Lage do d die Preise ausgesprochen bodenständig. Besonders lobend zu erwähnen ist der sehr freundliche und bemühte Service. Danke Jason für die freundliche Bedienung!

Trotz Reservierung um 22:00 wurde uns um 22:02 kommentarlos die Tür vor der Nase zugeschlagen. Offensichtlich war die Verlockung des Feierabends für das Personal zu groß - eine absolute Frechheit!!!

Bedienung war freundlich, Ambiente nicht herausragend aber durchaus akzeptabel. Essen nicht zu empfehlen. Salat hat schon etwas alt und muffig geschmeckt, die Käsespätzle waren auch nicht unbedingt herausragend. Wer nur auf ein Bier dort einkehren möchte, alles bestens. Zum Abendessen sollte man sich etwas anderes suchen.

The beer was good (actually, the best of all).
We ordered 4 Schweinshaxe that came overcooked and really hard even to cut with a proper knife. Imagine that in your mouth...
Absolutely unacceptable!
Never again!

We booked for New Year. The menu was very limited and expensive. We had to wait a long time to be served and to get the food. The food was extraordinarily salty and we left most of it. We were offered a free coffee or ice cream but declined. We were then told the bill would be adjusted by 15 percent but they actually only took off 5 percent. We were dreadfully disappointed and could not recommend this venue which is a shame as the usual menu looked good on the website. There was no mention of the reduced menu when we booked back in September.

We wanted somewhere for an early supper prior to visiting the Reichstag Building - this was perfect. It was only a few minutes away from both the building and the Brandenberg Tor, and had excellent traditional German meals on the menu as well as pasta and salads. Service was perhaps a little slow, but very friendly. I have recommended it to friends who are planning a visit to Berlin.
