Love the modern and cozy interior combined with the classic European fine dining service and quality. Nothing beats that! The food is outstanding, and not just the Wiener Schnitzel. Try the Goulash, the lamb or the duck!

We enjoyed a seamless, special experience at Wallsé from the moment we walked through the door. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, who was busy helping another guest but made sure we knew we were still being taken care of. Our waiter, Julio was friendly, warm, and attentive. We enjoyed 3 different cocktails that night, all as good if... More

At first, I found the concept of Wallse disconcerting. First, fine art in a fine dining room is not to everyone's taste. Second, the website made it difficult to view the food selections. Instead, I was overwhelmed by cocktail and wine selections. Third, out of town guests have a hard time finding Washington Street, the intersecting street for Wallse's address,... More

Booked this dinner for my husbands 60th.. The staff are attentive and knowledgable, special mention to Alex. The cocktails are not the usual but that is a good thing-smell and taste sensation. Each dish was well presented with great flavours. My favourite was the Tomato cocktail and the poached lobster with 4 cheese dumplings in a bisque.Heavenly.. thank you Wallse... More

The first time I discovered Bavarian food in Munich it was as if I had been taken back to my parents' kitchen, where I grew up on Viennese food. I had high hopes for Wallse, which is the only Michelin-starred Austrian restaurant in New York. It fell far short of my expectations. It feel far short of my experience with... More

We had a n early reservation and were seated immediately. Had a pretty decent Blaufrankish. The bread that was served was kinda poor. The butter on the other hand was nice and soft. The schnitzel was also pretty good. The potato salad that came with it not so much. Waitstaff attentive. Be careful in the men's toilet.. it has a... More

I booked this place for my partner's birthday hoping to enjoy some of the atmosphere we loved while traveling in Austria. The experience was deflating right from thr start. A snooty waiter that served as a temporary host asked if we wanted to check our jackets. When we said no, he rolled his eyes and proceeded to ask if we... More

The food was wonderful. Austrian done right. The rabbit spaetzle was excellent as was the suckling pig. Service was a little discombobulated at the beginning. They didn't seem to know how to handle cocktails and didn't communicate well what they were doing. One said she could help with the wine but then couldn't. But the sommelier was excellent and was...

when you just walk in and sit down at the bar you do not get an impression that it is a Michelin-Starred restaurant. but once you get inside and get your meals served you can see (and taste) the quality and class.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
