My entire family loved this place. The food was amazing from the appetizers through dessert. The traditional German dishes were a flavor packed experience which we all raved about. Our waiter was pleasant and added to the overall experience by providing quick service in spite of a packed house. I was impressed with Edelweiss's service flow. The atmosphere was the best I have enjoyed in years. There was an accordionist, great German decor, cozy table areas, and a festive ambiance which made for great conversation.

. Staff was perfect and gave great suggestions. Extraordinary German café around. Food was astounding! The environment was fun and caused it to feel like you were in Germany. The lager garden looked perfect. I can't actually find whatever negative to say regarding the night here. We ate such a lot of we were unable to partake in any of their astounding looking pastries. Strongly suggest and definitely back soon.

Delicious homemade German food, I enjoyed the large salad that comes with the meal and would recommend the app sampler. The outside is very dog friendly with a beautiful courtyard and some of the most amazing desserts.

For authentic German and European food and a lovely, quiet atmosphere, Edelweiss is the ultimate place! We were celebrating my birthday both times I went for dinner. It was still family friendly enough for schoolage grandkids to o enjoy. The accordion player was entertaining and professional. There was so much food delivered with the dinner that I had no room for dessert so I plan to return another time just for the homemade cake or pie available.

I'm so glad I finally tried Edelweiss! It really is the talk of the town and such a unique experience. The first thing I noticed when I walked in were the two HUGE cases of delectable desserts. Truffles and tarts and cakes, oh my! I really wanted to try the lemon mousse torte...I'll be back. For our main meal, we ordered the Rahmschnitzel and another dish I'm forgetting the name of. We split the two because there were so many sides for both dishes and we wanted to try everything! I LOVED the spatz and the steamed vegetables were great. The mushroom sauce on the Rahmschnitzel was very creamy and flavorful. We also ordered the hazelnut or rum torte...maybe it was almond? It was dense but in the best way. So much flavor. My office is planning to go to Edelweiss for our Christmas party and I can't wait to be back and try more. I really appreciated that Edelweiss is authentic from the menu down to the decor.

Had a wonder meal with my wife. Great German atmosphere. Loved the Roladen and wife had sample plate. She didn't care for the salmon. Our second time here.

Aside from the German Beers and Desserts, this restaurant is in dire need of revamping. The cuisine is lacking in authenticity and selection. German food is hearty and fresh; not just fried schnitzel. Upon a recent visit, an appetizer which stated on the menu consisted of Smoked Trout, Salmon and Caviar with Potato Pancakes, was a barely thawed offering straight from a freezer. The caviar component was nowhere in sight, and the Potato Pancakes, we're old and tough. Perhaps some freshly grilled German Sausages with Course Mustard, served alongside Red Cabbage and Boiled Potatoes could be an offering they could consider.


Very much enjoyed our visit to Edelweiss - great food, atmosphere, and service (thanks Kevin B)!When visiting with a nut allergy, it is important to note that they do use the same deep fryer for their schnitzels and their cashew-crusted chicken.Our server Kevin did a great job helping us navigate the menu with a nut allergy and coming up with a creative and safe solution (got our schnitzel sautéed instead of deep fried). In addition to being super helpful, he also was very funny and personable.Loved the vibes (including accordion music), decor, and overall experience!Thank you!


Stopped her for midafternoon lunch. Authentic atmosphere and the food was great! Beer and deserts were awesome as well. a must stop.

My experience here has been absolutely wonderful.The Atmosphere:Beautifully decorated! There is a treat in every corner of the eye. As you are sat down you look around to see what interesting trinkets/decorations you can find. Very spacious environment.The Staff:Very friendly! The staff were extremely welcoming and had a genuine feel that they are happy to see you. A comforting staff indeed.The Food:Of course the food the most important part. The tastes were on point and cooked very well. I decided to go for the Rahmschnitzel and the flavor very fine!. The mushroom cream sauce is something any mushroom lover would enjoy. They also had a wonderful selection of deserts as seen in my photos. Unfortunately I was not able to try these as I was in a time crunch. However they look absolutely delectable.


We were from out of town and didn't know we needed reservations. The Manager, who was at the front desk, said he would find a place for us. Within 5 minutes, we were sitting outside at a beautiful table and surroundings. The atmosphere made me feel like I was in Germany, which I have been numerous times. Shortly after ordering our food, it started to rain. The waiter, Justin, did a fantastic job of getting us inside out of the rain, while still providing exceptional service to his other numerous guests. He had to cover double the area than he usually does because someone called out, but I never would have known it if he hadn't said something. He handled it all so well. Our food was SO VERY AMAZING and VERY AUTHENTIC German food, from the salad, the beer, the main entree and certainly the German Chocolate cake!!!! If you are searching for a great experience, whether you like German food or not, this place is the best place to go for excellence in service, quality of food and value for the price. Not expensive at all. The atmosphere for the entire restraurant is spectacular!!

I personally had the deer,elk and Buffalo bratwurst appetizer as my meal with a side salad. The bratwurst is a must have. Absolutely fantastic. The wife had a dish that I have no idea how to spell now. Very friendly staff and despite the numerous customers, service was very acceptable. I wasn't too certain about the side salad, but it was surprisingly delicious. A definite must go to place. Gluten free menu is available

Had the worst experience here today. An hour fifteen minutes for lunch. And we had chosen our reservation after the noon rush. We saw our waitress when she took our order and when she brought the check. Then my wife got sick the rest of the day. Watch out for the vegetables! This used to be a great place...

The decor is so inviting once you enter the restaurant. It is so colorful and decorated as if you are in Germany. It is so nice and clean and there is a “feel good” ambiance of the restaurant. The Lady server is so welcoming. We love the schnitzel dishes we ordered. The pork is so tender, just lightly breaded and topped with their tasty mushroom sauce. The highlight of our lunch is their traditional cheese cake, it has just the right amount of creaminess and sweetness and I highly recommend it. This restaurant is a must to visit when you are in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Waitress was nice, let us sample the beer before purchasing. Bread was cold, which my partner didn't like. He likes it warm. We shared a combination dish and the steak was excellent, potatoes were great, the veal cordon bleu was great. Wild rice was so so. The desserts looked delicious, but he doesn't do sweets, and they go straight to my arse, so much to my dismay we passed on them . Enjoyed it,
