I love german food and expected this to be one of the high lights of my vacation at this location. Walking into the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised by the decor as it felt like being in Germany it self. The one side had traditional decor and the other had an open area with glass roof and water feature. Unfortunately... More

Our adventure on Christmas Eve to the Black Forest was more like a visit to a castle in Transylvania. Our greeter If you can call him that was an old man with a black eye that resembled Igor in the Frankenstein movies who directed us very wearily to our table. Next an old lady who was probably his wife gave... More

We spent Thanksgiving in Colorado and had dinner at the Black Forest Restaurant as it was the only place we knew of that was open that night in Nederland. This might have been a great place in its day but something (old dirty carpeting?) set off my wife's allergies during our dinner. I tried the Sauerbraten as it is advertised... More

We've come here often from Denver over the past ten years, ever since the proprietor insisted we have wine instead of lemonade at lunch. We've lived in Austria and Germany as well - and find the food comparable and service authentic: if the waiters don't like you, your service will probably reflect (as evidenced by some of the reviews). If... More

This was our third trip to Nederland, but our first trip to the Black Forest Restaurant; we will definitely be making a fourth trip just to eat here again. AS other shave reported there are a lot of stairs to the front door, but the climb is soooo worth it. Once inside the main dining room is beautiful, very tranquil... More

I have eaten many Steak Tartare in my life and without doubt this is the best - truly outstanding. For that alone in gets 5 stars. Make sure that Martin makes the Tartare (otherwise it's not worth bothering).

The front steps to this restaurant are a mess. Anyone that struggles with stairs beware. The rest of us will enjoy the food and surroundings.

Food was good but could have been a better temperature, on the cool side. Waiter, been there a long time, could be a bit more upbeat and smile. Bread was from a loaf of sliced wheat from a grocery store, not cool. Bread is cheap to make and it's a European restaurant! Plan on taking your time. $ isn't bad... More

Very disappointed in this place. The oxtail soup had been highly recommended to us so we drove to Nederland specifically to try it. Sign said open. Menu posted outside looked good. Quaint looking building with two flights of rickety wooden steps leading up to the front door. Was a small sign saying there is a handicapped ramp in the back... More
