i had someone pick up a dinner from lederhosen hoping to find a german closer to home ( 3 blocks) - what a waste of money (not cheap) the pork was too dry to eat, dumped it. the potato pancakes were too thin to hold up the cream AND applesauce smeared all over instead of on the side. must be a drinking place - certainly not a dining place. too bad. Cons: dry, stale,pork, - worst pancakes from here to germany more

pretty good food, interesting beer, great servers 3/6/2009

It was with trepidation that I decided on a German Restaurant/Bar. Our worst outing ever was at the awful Zum Schneider on the lower east side. That place was filled with the kind of people you'd expect to see at a Kansas football game. 100% awful jocks who should have been turned away by the immigration guards at the George Washington Bridge. All the reasons you left and came to New York. There, making caw caw sounds.\r \r I'm pleased to say, Lederhosen was not like that. Yeah there were a few jocky guys whose guffaws sounded hollow in the back room. But there was enough variety and ambiance, not to care.\r \r Our waitress, Selma, was from Namibia, and she spoke perfect German. (Yeah she spoke English, dummy. It's the national language of Namibia!) She was so helpful that she even called a friend to check out an African restaurant address for us.\r \r The German food was pretty good. We had curry wurst, and something with politically incorrect veal. Both were nice, but nothing to write home about.\r \r The German beer selection was very good. It included rauch beer. That is rarely seen in the U.S. This is a ""smoked"" beer, that some people think tastes like bacon. The boys liked it. The girls didn't.\r \r All-in-all, it's a great place, and, unlike that East Village place, I'll be coming back. -- Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers\r \r Pros: servers, German Beer, ambience except Cons: a few loud jocks more

The closest you can get to Bavaria without leaving Manhattan 9/30/2008

Don't let the name (or the restaurant's web site) fool you. This place is one of the best German restaurant/bar I've been to in NYC. The service was very good, and the waitress friendly and instructive! The food was authentic Bavian fare, and absolutely delicious. The beer selection is equally impressive. I ventured off my usual German favorites and tried beers I have not heard of before or since, and they were all excellent. Reservations are a must. Pros: German beer hall style, great food, great beer, great time to be had! Cons: Reservations are required. more

Green Hills, Blue Skies, and Quality Beer 6/13/2008

I repeatedly visit this bar/restaurant. Every time I go, my friends and I almost always burst into a loud song. The beer is delicious and so are the sausages and buns they come in. The buns are crispy and hold your choice of bratwurst (from among many). I go to Lederhosen to make happy memories and therefore try to go infrequently so I can always cherish my time there. I frequently find that time flies by as you order beer after beer. People order pitchers but I prefer their bottled variety. The atmosphere is wonderful. The best part is that the walls are painted with green hills and blue skies and everyone is seated on benches around picnic tables . The setup makes you feel like you are in the Sound of Music. I love this place and highly recommend it for a group of two who wish to get into a deep conversation, or a group of ten who wish to rouse the patrons with loud cheerful songs. A great place to make friends and keep them. Pros: Great Beer, Ambience, and Food Cons: A bit pricey for my Brooklyn budget. more

Feels like you are at an Octoberfest 6/8/2008

MY husband and I take our 14 month son here at least once a month. Found this place by accident and just keep coming back. Not only do they have excellent food at great prices(which is unexpected for the city) but most importantly when we walk in its as if they are welcoming a family member. Uli and the rest of the staff treat our son like a king. No matter how busy they get they always have time to stop by our table and talk to us and kneel by our son and entertain him. Like I said, the food is fantastic(my husband swears by the Jagerschnitzel),the beers are great(you get a huge liter for almost nothing) the prices are fantastic and the owners and staff are fantastic.VERY highly recommended...you wont be disappointed. Pros: staff, food and price more

GREAT GERMAN FOOD!!!, 12/29/2007

ok folks i have been to probably some of the most well known german restaurants in the city. Heidelberg, zum stamisch, hallo berlin, and by far this is the best food at a very good price. \r \r I used to think (well i still do) that Heidelberg is the best german restaurant in the city. This place just serves that same top notch quality food as Heidelberg but at a better price. \r \r ok the desserts are better at heidelberg, and i think the service is better at heidelberg too. \r \r I had this 20 something downtown hipster waiter ""serve me"" He was a little overwhelmed by his job and he really wasn't as attentive as he should have been but otherwise i recommend this place, \r \r hey you go for the food, the service and the decor, two out of three aint bad!!!\r \r but folks please never ever ever go to rolfs, ever!!!! Pros: great german food, rates probably best in the city at a good price Cons: inexperienced waiter that was overwhelmed more

should be listed as restaurant too 4/14/2007

went there last night w/ a friend after noticing it just walking by. We were very happy we walked in. The beers on tap are hard to find elewhere and we had dinner too. The food was delicious!!! (albeit a bit salty, but I love salty foods). The music and atmosphere in the bar area had some great vibes (Coldplay). Our waitress was so sweet and helpful. All in all a great place. The food I think is better than Rolf's although I think they should try to make the dining room a little cozier, the lights were a bit bright. But I'll definitely be back! Try number 32 on the dinner menu. Pros: food, beer, service Cons: dining room too bright more

Excellent Find 10/29/2006

Really enjoyed the food and the service. Really nice place to go takes you to a far land without the plan ride. more

The Ultimate Destination for German Beer 9/4/2006

Amazing selection of beer and great German comfort food make this place am ideal spot for anyone in search of little Germany in NYC. Service might not be very fast or very friendly, but that is not a big deal. Once you finally get your beer and sausages you forget that it took a while for them to arrive and just enjoy them. Pros: Weisbeer more

Flashback to Deutschland 4/27/2006

Last night I celebrated a 11 year reunion with some friends who were all austausschulers in Germany back in High School. This place was perfect. The food, although very heavy and very German, was tasty and fair priced. The radeberger on tap was a flashback. The service was attentive, without being in your face. After some food and a few rounds the waiter gave us a pitcher on the house. Dinner, plus four hours of beer and wine for 6 ppl cost $160. not bad for a night out in NYC. If you are looking for a taste of Germany washed down with some good beer, this is a great choice. Pros: Beer choice, Fair Price, Authentic Cons: Heavy food, Small if busy more

Stay Away!!! 1/18/2006

This place was horrible! The previous poster was right on the time for eating here. We sat at our table for nearly 30 minutes before the waiter decided to take our first drink order. During this time, both of the waiters walked right past us many times, ignoring our waving. At least another half hour went by before we were able to order our food. By the time we got our food, we had been there 2 1/2 hours!!! We were starving, pissed off and literally about to walk out the door when the food finally arrived. Once the food did arrive, it was horrible! It was bland, tasteless and mushy. I've spent a lot of time in Germany and know what German food is supposed to taste like. This was nowhere near it. The attitude of the waitstaff is terrible. This place was a huge disappointment. STAY AWAY!!!! Cons: Service, Waitstaff, Food more

niemals wieder 12/13/2005

30 minutes before drink order taken 90 minutes untiil meal finally arrived 2.5 hours for second drink order to be taken 3.5 hours total by the time check arrived this place was a major disappointment...my friend from Duesseldorf said his food was like a fotocopy of german food...nice to look at, no flavor. i'll never, ever, ever return Pros: good beer Cons: service, food more

Our Weekender 10/6/2005

And by that, I mean we are there EVERY weekend to eat and drink. I can't stress enough my love for this place. Great food, be it a simple wurst (cheap), or full on platters of traditional German food, you can't go wrong with the eats here. Their Goulash soup is to die for, although they don't always offer it. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you check out their bier prices. $10 pitcher of good German beer?? Bring me two! I recommend going earlier in the day, so you don't have to fight any crowds, and bring an appetite. Pros: reasonably priced, good food, great beer Cons: slow if busy more

Absolutely Brilliant! 9/6/2005

For an incredible authentic German meal or a pitchers of heavenly beers, you must visit Lederhosen. The laidback and welcoming atmosphere combined with a friendly and knowledgeable staff makes it a perfect place for dinner or an after-work drink. We have to fight the urge to stop in several times a week for snacks or dinner (my waistline can handle only so many bowls of spaetzle, orders of currywurst, and appetizers of kartofelpuffer in a week's time!). Everything is spectacularly prepared; you must try it! Pros: relaxed, delicious, inexpensive Cons: crowded for dinner, can be slow if busy more

Best German Food In NYC 8/8/2005

My wife and I ate there this past weekend. What the place is lacking in decor it more than makes up for in the quality and value of its menu. The sausages are unbelievable and we had this herring roll-up appetizer that was mind-blowing. Add to the food the reasonably priced beers and the Village has another great hangout for cheap eats. more

Wundervoll 8/6/2005

Having recently opened its doors to business, Lederhosen is slowly becomming my favorite place to frequent with friends. Very casual and relaxed environment, good food, great beer, and its inexpensive! Don't be afraid to try new things at Lederhosen: they'll break you into German food slowly with their delicious sausage plates, then they'll seduce you with their potato pancakes and ""gulashsuppe mit spaetzle"". Everything that I've tried so far, I've liked. If you love beer, then this is your bar. You have an array of German beers on tap, and for $8 the bartender will hand you a full liter! It cannot be beat. Take your beer, kick back on the couch, and enjoy Lederhosen. Pros: Great Beer, Authentic Food, Value!! Cons: No sign, hard to find more
