A great spot for GF! Menus marked and waiter was great about knowing what I could or couldn’t have. Food came out on its own prior to everyone else’s. Had the onion schnitzel, highly recommended!

Beware, the new owner (since 2020) does NOT care about food allergies.

I ordered my food dairy-free, was told it was no problem, and it came out half smothered in hollandaise sauce. The server immediately took responsibility for it and said they would remake it. Since it had been 90 minutes since we ordered, I was starving, so I told her to go ahead and remake it but that I was going to start eating from the safe end of the plate in the meantime. The owner then came over with a smirk on his face, arms folded, and seemed to question whether I really had a food allergy/intolerance. I told him I had started eating from the safe end while they remade another because I was so hungry. In response to remaking the food, he said with a huff, "really? just because of that little bit?" He ultimately refused to remake it, agreed to take it off my bill, and I left hungry. I was shocked that a place with such a great gf selection could be so flippant about allergies, but we then found out that as of 2020, it is being run by a new owner. It seems the former owner's tradition of allergy-friendly food is lost on this guy. I will not be back considering he is very likely cutting corners when it comes to safety if he thinks a little hollandaise sauce is no big deal to someone who can’t have dairy.

Our server was very helpful and talked with the kitchen and manager ensuring that everything I ordered was gf. I was also able to enjoy my favorite gf beer (glutenburg blond ale) with my dinner.

Excellent GF schnitzels! They have updated the recipe recently and it’s significantly better (and was good to start with). There are quite a few GF sides as well. They also have a dedicated fryer for GF items.

I loved it, and I especially loved that they brought out my plate with a cover so that my dinner companion’s plate didn’t contaminate mine during transit!

How could it be so different?

On Palm Sunday in April my family and I dined at Schnitzelplatz and had a perfect, yes perfect, gluten free German meal. Wait staff was wonderful. Sauerbraten was exactly as it should taste, German salad was fresh. We all loved our meals. Was so impressed! Then I returned yesterday and had a horrible experience with a server, the worst Sauerbraten ever …meat was fine but sauce was NOT a sauerbraten sauce to match the meat, I scraped it off, ate some of my meal but it was NOT the same delicious dinner we had 2 months prior. Even the side dishes were subpar. I got glutened and was really sick today! All the care and good food of our first visit was gone! So, not sure what to advise! Was it a different cook? A wacky waitress? New owners? No consistency except this off story they tell you before they let you order sauerbraten about how some people don’t like their version. Ok, I loved it the first time. I am German. I lived and worked in Germany.

Schnitzels can be made gluten free. There are many gluten free appetizers and ciders. I felt good afterwards. The server was knowledgeable and communicated to the kitchen

Gluten free schnitzel, you just need to ask! They use rice flour. Sides of potatoes, and green beans are also gluten free. Talk to your server!
