Appetizers showed up after three of the four entrees, the court entree finally came ice cold. The second round of drinks showed well after everyone was finished. The bottle of wine came after that, even though it was ordered with the meals. Visit the pub, have a drink and find someplace else to dine.

fantastic spot for our first meal in Munich! Great fun waiter! We sampled all the german favorites and our waiter suggested the perfect options for our meal. We are a group of foodies with dietary issues and found many options to suit our needs. In addition, I emailed to reserve a table - they were attentive and thoughtful in their advice and help. Lots of fun!

It took 1.5 hours to get served after sitting down, unacceptable even to the most patient person. Food was just ok, though they do offer a nice variety of options for those who don't eat pork. I likely will not return.

Die Platzreservierung hat nicht ganz so geklappt wie wir es uns gewünscht hätten. Wir waren schon oft im Ratskeller und lieben es, in einem Erker zu sitzen. Haben vermutlich zu spät reserviert. Trotzdem haben wir einen schönen Platz erhalten, jedoch war eine Gruppe "wilder" Männer nebenan, so dass man kaum ein gutes Gespräch führen konnte. Der Service und das Essen waren wie gewohnt aussergewöhnlich gut! Danke und auf ein Andermal!

Over the past 40+ years I have visited the Ratskeller on many occasions. This visit was for my 72nd Birthday with 11 guests. The location is totally reliable if slightly expensive but it lies in the centre of Munich.

My 1st visit was on 2nd November 1977!

I love the Lammhaxl.

I had extremely terrible service from my waiter, he disappeared for half an hour, the other waiters would not help us either, they just tried to find the missing guy. In the end he also forced us to pay him 10% tip, claiming it is the standard. when I checked with my german friends later they say this is not at all the norm. food is the same as any other biergarten, would not come here again.

Potential tourist trap but there were plenty of locals in too. Wiener schnitzel and pork shank were delicious, as was the black forest dessert. Service was great, friendly but not intrusive. The place was rammed on a Saturday night so do make sure you book. The place has a really fun ambience and I loved the vaulted ceilings and decor. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We visited The Ratskeller as part of a family siblings vacation, traveling from the United States and London. The host was very quick to seat us and the ambiance seemed great to start off, being located right near the newly set up Christmas markets and central to Munich.

Almost immediately, however, our sever made it quite clear that he was not amicable with Americans and it took over 45 minutes for him to even TAKE our drink order. When we asked to put drinks and food in together, he acted as if we had requested something extremely outlandish. I do understand that cultures are obviously different and maybe it was a high tourist time, but we barely even got words out before he essentially decided to label us as difficult customers. The food overall was very good and fairly authentic but the service experience here absolutely would refrain me from coming again. This is the 2nd review I have done through this application and I mainly wanted to forewarn tourists that It may be better to look elsewhere outside a largely tourist populated area. It seems the staff here relies on tourist revenue, yet wants nothing to do with those traveling from afar. Our waiter questioned how we ordered food items and would walk away mid sentence if we asked something out of the ordinary. We seemed like an inconvenience to him 100% of the evening.

I think we got unlucky with a poor waiter (also reported by our neighboring British table), but it certainly gave me a very a bad taste for this restaurant overall. I would not recommend its worth to someone who is spending the time and energy to explore a new city. I hope to find better Munich experiences in our upcoming days.

Food was very good and the location was wonderful, right beneath the New Town Hall. We booked 6 pm and the waiter was in a hurry for everything, especially when it was getting close to 7pm. We were rushed to pay the bill and leave, the waiter told us that our table was booked for 7pm as well, but we were not told when brought to the table. The place was not full and there was no reason to give us a table for only one hour without telling us beforehand. The food was great and the service was not bad, but the arrangement and the one hour limit were unacceptable.
