My schnitzel was perfect, the beer was great and our waiter was super nice! Had a wonderful experience there with my husband and my cousin, would definitely recommend the place!

Stayed next door during a business trip and ate and drank here a few times during the stay. Great atmosphere food and of course the beer.

Great find. Loreley is a great bar and restaurant which has a heavy nod to the bierkeller heritage of the area without being a gimmick. Bar staff are great ( particularly David - thank you) and there is a great patio out the back. Great happy hour with steins at dangerously low prices!

Loreley is a great low key option in the LES. It’s particularly nice to sit outside in the beer garden. We recently visited with a large group of friends and they let us reserve a table in advance (although not one of the ones outside). There are plenty of German food options and the bratwurst is particularly tasty. Of course,... More

I had purchased a lunch Groupon for this restaurant, and we got a lot for what we originally paid. My schnitzel was okay, and the beers were great. Servers were a little slow but all were very friendly. The outside biergarten area was quaint and comfortable. I enjoyed our lunch here.

Visited here after a tour at the Tenement Museum (we were learning about German immigrants and craved German food afterwards). Great beers, delicious food & cute/fun atmosphere! Plus, our waiter (I think his name was Dan) was a lot of fun and very accommodating!

I will start off by noting I'm really picky about German food--I was spoiled by a really good German butcher shop in Rochester, NY, and so far nothing I've found has managed to outclass that place in quality or price. I had high hopes for Loreley because it's a favorite of my brother, and ended up being disappointed. I'll start... More

The Good: Cute Beer Garden, pleasant spot on a summer evening, and a very nice selection of beers on tap. The Not So Good: The food we ordered was overall very mediocre. The Potato pancakes seemed to be made of mashed, not grated potatoes and had very little flavor. They didn't seem at all fresh, The Wiener Schnitzel came to... More

This is a really cool place. It's basically a beer garden. We had the brat sampler plate and it was really good. The beers are huge and they're not cheap if you order at the tables. One very dislike I had and i hope the restaurant reads this is the $5 charge for asking for some extra sauerkraut. Considering what... More
