Berlin Restaurants

Lutter & Wegner

Updated 12/24/2013

Fodor's Review

One of the city's oldest vintners (Sekt, German champagne, was first conceived here in 1811 by actor Ludwig Devrient), Lutter & Wegner has returned to its historic location across from Gendarmenmarkt. The dark-wood-panel walls, parquet floor, and multiple rooms take diners back to 19th-century Vienna, and the food, too, is mostly Austrian, with superb game dishes in winter and, of course, the classic Wiener schnitzel with potato salad. The sauerbraten (marinated pot roast) with red cabbage is a national prizewinner. In the Weinstube, a cozy room lined with wine shelves meat and cheese plates are served until 3 am. There are several other locations around Berlin but this one is widely considered the best.

My trip to Germany: The Gastronomic experience at Lutter & Wegner such a deception

This is the kind of places that makes you sad when travelling. And it is so because normally people create expectations about specific places they want to visit. I created my own about Lutter & Wegner and it was such a deception. Everything started when I called to make the reservation. The person on the phone was extremely rude, but I naïvely thought it was because of my poor German. The dreamed day arrived and finally there I was at Lutter & Wegner.

The waitress was not gentile at all when she showed me the table and gave me the menu. But again I convinced myself that everything was going to be better when the food and the wine were in my table. It was the biggest deception ever in my gastronomic experience around the world. The food was cold, the wine was tasteless and the service was horrible. Everything was overpriced and latter I discovered better places in Berlin, less pretentious and more delicious.

Lutter & Wegner Review

For Germans, this restaurant has special significance because the odd word "Sekt" for sparkling wine had been invented here out of a joke. The restaurant still has a cozy, historic atmosphere which has, however, been spoilt since it has become overrun by tourists. The food is mostly Austrian and pretty mediocre. There are many restaurants in Berlin which serve a better Wienerschnitzel.

Understaffed and rushed

While the food here is good, our second visit (after a rushed but fairly pleasant first visit) was a disaster. We had just received our aperitif and taken a sip when our food arrived. Although we had ordered a bottle of wine we were given two classes of wine. When we ordered a second glass, one person brought two more classes and the waiter anther two glasses. When we told him we didn't want the third glass he had a bit of a hissy fit. When we

finished, we waited about 15 minutes for the waiter to take our dessert order. We ordered one of their specials and then waited another 20 minutes before giving up and getting the check. A very unpleasant evening. Never again.

WARNING! There are different kinds og Lutter und Wegner

The original is in Schlüterstrasse 55 in Charlottenburg, Berlin. Excellent food at reasonably prices. Please do not compare with the Lutter & Wegner at Gendarmenmarkt, close to the Hilton!!! Get the real thing in Charlottenburg!!! Administrator! Please make a separate entry for this independent restaurant, not affiliated with the other L&W s!!!!
