Very authentic German food! I was prepared to simply have a salad while my German husband feasted on familiar fare. There was nothing marked on the menu that may be gluten wise. But when the waiter, Sean found out I was GF he told me about dishes that could modified. In fact, many of their schnitzel dishes could be made Gluten Free. I had a wonderful meal !

The server was very confident in the menu items and what was safe. Prawns Pernod not safe! So I went with Escargot and mushrooms and it was NOT disappointing. The grilled appie bratwurst was GF and it was good. Not great and not terrible. Entrees are pricey so I stuck with the appies and I was full after. I’ll go back!

Delicious! The server knew exactly what I could eat and it was a good selection of the menu (any schnitzel with béarnaise was safe!). Had the cordon bleu champignon schnitzel and it was great. Second time I've had a good experience there, will be returning!

As a celiac person, I found the options in Harrison Hot Springs to be pretty limited. So when someone in one of my celiac groups on Facebook recommended Black Forest to me I thought we'd give it a shot. I'm the only one in my group who is celiac. They had an adequate kids menu so that's always a bonus. They said they could make any of their schnitzels gluten free and our waiter seemed fairly knowledgable about the menu. We went for the early bird (before 6:00) menu which was limited but more reasonably priced. I had the Vienna schnitzel but paid a surcharge for GF and a surcharge to have chicken instead of pork. It came with some "pan fried" potatoes, steamed vegetables, and some sort of cabbage slaw. The Vienna was just a basic preparation though and was fairly tasteless. The potatoes were okay but I always think of pan fried potatoes as sort of crispy and these were a bit soggy and very heavily flavoured of onions. The steamed veggies were BARELY cooked. And honestly, I'd rather have them on the undercooked side than the over cooked side but they were basically raw and warmed up a tiny bit. The slaw was NOT GOOD. It was like a cabbage jam almost. Very sweet and slimy. Not my palate at all. Others in my party also had the Vienna schnitzel and the Bavarian meatloaf. We all ordered from the early bird menu and I'm glad we only paid in the $15 range for our meals rather than the $25 range from the regular menu as I would have felt pretty put off by paying that much for what we got. The service was great, the food was adequate and I didn't get sick. But I can't say I'd go back again. To be fair, German food has never been a favourite of mine and if you wanted to order off the regular menu, there were lots of other options that looked like they might be more flavourful, but I probably won't give it another chance.
